it's cabin time™ in Deer River
Vacation rental cabins, cottages, lodges and homes in Deer River, Minnesota, enjoy a singular location at the scenic "Gateway to the Chippewa National Forest." This spectacular wilderness area and outdoor adventure hub is home to more than a million acres of old-growth forest land, 1,300 lakes, and 900-plus miles of rivers and streams.
Whether you are visiting "up north" in Minnesota for the fishing, the hiking, the paddling trips, or just to relax and enjoy the remote atmosphere, scenery and wildlife, Deer River is an ideal home base for your week-long or long-weekend getaway with family and friends.
Deer River and its surrounding wilderness areas offer a little something for everyone, from conoeing and kayaking to leisurely bike rides, and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling. Not to mention the excellent hunting and fishing! This area is especially known as a rich habitat for walleye and northern pike.
If you're planning to spend some time in town, we recommend a stop at the Leech Band of Ojibwe casino or the Native American Heritage Center. Deer River also hosts two seasonal community festivals: the World's Larges Wild Rice Festival, and the Bar-b-que & Brew Festival, both during the summer months.
Located just three hours north of the Twin Cities, Deer River has access to a number of exciting Minnesota attractions, as well as local restaurants and shopping. Be sure to talk with your rental owner or manager about the best Deer River places to visit!
