Minnesota’s Original Family Resort.
Ruttger’s is the longest, continually owned family resort in the state of Minnesota.
The Ruttger family has been welcoming folks like you to the scenic shores of Bay Lake for more than a century. Much has changed over the years, but the essence of Ruttger’s remains the same… The peace of a northern Minnesota sunset, time spent golfing, fishing and relaxing with the ones you love, a good meal, and the welcoming smile of an old friend. You’re family here and we welcome you to share in the warmth of our hearth and hearts because that’s the Ruttger’s Way. It always has been and always will be.
The Ruttger family opened the resort in 1898 and gained a reputation for friendly service in a beautiful setting. Five generations later, they are still here treating every guest just like family. We are confident that once you visit Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge you will agree we are one of the best resorts in Minnesota! Welcome to the lake.
