The Green Heron Bed and Breakfast is located on beautiful Pokegama Lake in the north-woods of Minnesota. Just minutes from Grand Rapids, we’re a cozy inn, open year round, with an old European country feel and modern American amenities. When you come down the drive you’ll find it hard to believe you were just in town and are now only minutes away from biking, hiking and ski trails. ATV and snowmobiling trails. Golf courses, fishing, shopping, brew pubs and wine bar.
We have two very comfortable guest rooms, each with private baths, views of the lake and easy access to our own fantastic sandy beach. Included in your stay is full hot breakfast, use of kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, canoes and fire pit on the beach. There’s mooring available if you bring your own boat, or rent from town. Play pickleball or tennis on-site, or just take an inside break and enjoy our beautiful library filled with a variety of games, music and of course books. WiFi access available throughout at no extra cost.
Gardens surround the house and provide for for lots of bird watching. Depending on the season and time of day you may experience visits from our local bald Eagles, great blue herons, loons and many varieties of ducks as well as woodpeckers, song birds, and of course our namesake…green herons.
Pokegama is a lake of many personalities. Morning and evening paddles, or fishing jaunts can be so soothing, especially when the lake is like glass. Other times you can experience the excitement of fishing tournaments, fireworks displays, hockey tournaments, ice skating, snowshoeing, boiling maple syrup…the list goes on and on.
Innkeepers Chris and Johnnie, and resident mascot/ official greeter Jake, look forward to meeting you and helping you have the perfect vacation that you will want to make into a tradition.
