The Lodge

The friendly Border View Lodge staff is here to help you! We want to make sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. We are here to answer any questions you may have during your stay. We can also provide information about Lake of the Woods, the Walleye Capital of the World, and the Baudette area.

Pick up some fishing essentials or shop for souvenirs in our office/gift shop. Some personal essentials and the most popular fishing rigs on our charters and in our fish houses are available. We have Border View Lodge apparel for sale including hats, clothing, and other souvenir items. Our selection is always changing as we offer new items each season.

Dine on our Deck

Border View Lodge offers full menu and bar service on the deck during the summer months. Rainy Riverside Dining – Enjoy dinner or cocktails on our spacious deck with breathtaking views of the Minnesota Canada Border Waters Rainy River. Relax and tell "fish tales" with good friends while enjoying the beautiful sunset.

An Indian legend says that you can take a crazy man, tie him to a tree facing a river, and he will be sane in 48 kick back and relax on our 2,000 square foot deck overlooking the scenic Rainy River just before it flows into Lake of the Woods.

The Docks

Many of our customers prefer to fish from their own boats. Take advantage of our 20 slip marina and docks. Bait is available for your boat right on the water. Dock slips are an additional $10 per night.
