Our family just completed vacationing at Eagle Ridge Resort for our 12th year in a row. We started out renting cabin 2 and as our family grew we have rented 2 cabins for the past several years. This year we rented the new cabin which sleeps 17 people very comfortably, even our 1 week old grandchild joined us for one night. It was wonderful to enjoy early morning coffee together around the table while those who wished to sleep in could. It is perfectly designed for our large group. As always we all enjoyed the swimming area, the paddleboat, kayaks, paddle boards, canoe, floating dock and of course the sand and lounge chairs. Gull Lake is such a beautiful quiet lake and the resort and it’s owners, Mark and Janine, all make our family vacation perfect Our grandchildren are counting the weeks off already until our next years reservation.

Amazing! Its quiet and has free kayaks and paddle boards to use!
Quiet, awesome resort. Couldn’t be any more caring or kind owners. We were in a 4 bedroom cabin, everything we needed. Clean, well taken care of place. Wednesday evening they host a potluck get together. Fishing was great and one of the best fish cleaning facilities/Room I’ve used. Ramp on location. Rental pontoon holds up to 8 people, worked great.
Eagle Ridge Resort is large enough to have a variety of things to do: swimming, fishing, camping, hiking, watching the game in your cabin, watching the Milky Way from the dock at night, cooking in or out, visiting with family or friends, and 20 minutes to Bemidji area tourist attractions and shopping (if you drive like I do).But the resort is also small enough to have highly personal service from the co-owners Janine and Mark Faris, and nature is not pushed far away by overdevelopment.
There are a variety of cabins available for a range of prices. For a large group check out the beautiful and comfortable new Cabin 7.
Our family continues to recall the fun time we had at your resort earlier this summer. The cabin and facilities were very clean and updated. Kitchen was well supplied. The pontoon worked great in allowing all of us to be on the water at the same time. Todd Imdieke, fishing guide you suggested, was accommodating and knowledgeable. Our grandkids had fun catching fish, playing on the beach and playground. The large lawn area around our cabin #2 was put to use catching bubbles and yard games. On the rainy days we took a trip into Bemidji one day and to Voyageur National Park on another. In summary, it was a Wonderful Week.
We found this Resort by going to the Omaha Boat Sports & Travel Show. We thought it would be fun to go. Talking to our friends we planned this trip a year ahead and just got back. We had a great time. We had 7 people and stayed in cabin 2 very comfortably. The cabin was wonderful, the resort is family friendly and yet quiet, fishing was fantastic, rented a newer pontoon boat and it was very nice, lots to do, lake view, not far from town. Owners made us feel like family! We needed something and they got it for us! Fantastic place to go. Take your family as you won’t regret it! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
Very nice relaxing stay at this resort. Attentive owners and good clientel. Nice lake and location. (Yes, there really are eagles!)
Our family meets at Eagle Ridge Resort once a year for a week in the summer and have been doing so for a while. It is a very nice place run by very nice people. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The cabins are kept up very well, and there is a variety of different sized cabins to choose from; so, no matter the size of your party, you will be able to find one that fits your needs. The resort also maintains their fishing boats well, too, and they range in size to accommodate different needs, as well. There is also a paddle boat, some kayaks, a canoe, and paddle boards that are available for guest use. The lodge offers a nice area for guests to gather to play board games, or pool; and has some frequently needed amenities for sale. We always really enjoy our time spent there each year.
After a busy spring we were finally able to go to our campsite to relax and decompress. There is no better place than Eagle Ridge Resort for that. Mark and Janine, you two are the best owners we could ever hope for, you are always so willing to help out when problems arise, you two definitely make our stays much more pleasant and enjoyable. Anxiously awaiting for our next trip up, hopefully we will be able to enjoy the gorgeous beach and fabulous lake more. Thanks again for being so wonderful.
My husband and I stayed at Eagle Ridge with friends for a week. We had a great time. Cabin was very modern and had everything that we needed. We had a dock with a bench that we could fish from or just sit and enjoy the view. Down at the beach area you could use the paddle boat, paddle board or kayaks. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our time there and will be going back.
This our second year of returning to Eagle Ridge Resort in Tenstrike Mn. My family and I could not be more pleased with a resort. It is everything we looked for in a resort, quiet, friendly and a great lake. The commercialism of so many resort are over rated, why pay a lot more to be disappointed. Mark and Janine are great host and have treated us like family since the first day we arrived. We will be returning year after year for many years to come. If you want a friendly atmosphere and the quiet relaxing vacation I would highly recommend Eagle Ridge Resort in Tenstrike Mn.
Wonderful owners! 7 of us in the largest cabin, #2, very comfortable. Right on the edge of Gull Lake. We were treated like family by the owners. Fishing was great, plenty of water canoes, boards, kayaks, paddle boats to keep everyone busy. We rented a fairly new pontoon that ran perfectly and a breeze to fish out of. The fish cleaning station/room was one of the best setups I’ve ever used and seen, being all stainless steel, hot & cold running water in it and all inside from the elements. Boat ramp and docks for fishermen with their own rigs right at resort. We spent 7 nights here.
We’ve stayed at several places on this lake over the years, and Eagle Ridge is our favorite. The owners are friendly and accommodating, and they have made many improvements to the property. Some of the older cabins are more rustic (in keeping with what is found at other resorts on the lake); the newer cabins are more modern. We really enjoy relaxing on the big porch of the large cabin while our kids enjoy the swimming beach and kayaks. Great location, scenery, service. Highly recommend.
We just ended another excellent week long vacation at Eagle Ridge Resort! Every year it seems we come back to new improvements at the resort – this year one was the retaining wall around the swimming beach along with a new pontoon for renting. Next year there will be a new, larger cabin that we plan to fit the entire family in (grown from 9 of us 10 years ago to 20 now so we’ve been renting 2 cabins).

My family has been making an annual trip up to Gull lake since before I was born. I have stayed at many resorts over the years and, by far, this is the nicest of them. The owners keep the place up very nicely with very clean, well kept cabins of a variety of sizes to fit your needs. They go out of their way to make you feel at home.
There are multiple options available for boating and fishing and they keep a nice stock of paddle boards and kayaks available for the use of the guests. I like this place very much and will continue to go back to it year after year.
5 stars – Awesome people, awesome place! My husband is working in the area and Mark and Janine have been superb hosts. I definitely recommend Eagle Ridge!
5 stars – Love going to Eagle Ridge with the family!!! We try to go every year.
Our family just finished our 8th annual week long trip at Eagle Ridge Resort and it was another wonderful time – growing from only 8 adults our first year to 9 adults and 8 children this year. The weather didn’t cooperate with us to start the week but it didn’t slow our kids down from having a great time. We caught plenty of fish, went on pontoon rides, enjoyed the playground, observed all sorts of wildlife, swam and even got to relax a little because we could let our kids play on their own while always being within eyesight. The owners continue to be very accommodating each year making sure we enjoy our time there. We are excited for next year, especially with the planned renovation of the swimming area.
