Enjoyed staying at Ruttger's while visiting the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails. Loved staying at a resort with wonderful accommodations and took full advantage of all the amenities. Golf, pools, beach, boating, kids activities, restaurants, a great pub, fun shopping and a spa! A short 10 minute drive had us at the trails with world class mountain biking. We thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular mine lake views and the gorgeous forests surrounding them. Can't wait to come back!
