Unique Features

The sliding glass door opens onto the large deck where you will have an amazing view of Pelican Lake. A short walk to the lake and the best lakeside beach in all of Northern Minnesota!

Originally founded in the 1930s, Kasey and Adam Van Tassell purchased Birch Forest Lodge in July of 2015 and are excited to host you on your next summer lake vacation. Welcome to well maintained rental boats, awesome sunsets and starry nights. We have two bays, one that is shallow and protected with natural sand, great for those wanting to play in the water and the other bay has the marina - we never have motor boats in the swimming beach area.

Things To Do

Chart your course to the Voyageur where you will find plenty of resort activities for all ages! Kayak, play volleyball, build sandcastles, or soak up some sun. What’s the best time of the year to visit? Depends on how you want to spend your cabin time. May is also when things come alive again and the water is cold and usually the fishing is pretty good. June is also the worst month for bugs, but the best month for fishing. Towards the solstice we enjoy almost 20 hours of daylight! July is when the lake starts to get busy and is a great time to swim and ski. August offers the best meteor showers - 100 meteors an hour and less bugs. September Fall colors and occasional Aurora Borealis are stunning, and the bass, pike and crappie fishing all pick back up.

The Orr area is a great place to explore if you stray from the resort. Visit the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary, witness the cascading torrent of water being forced through a 10 foot wide opening at Vermillion Falls.

The best place to take a vacation away from the cities whether it be with friends or family. Cabins are updated and clean and the lake is awesome to fish at. My family and I have gone there three times, each being a week long. Not only do I love the scenery (which is great for photos) but I love knowing my boys look forward to going every year.
