The Fireside Lodge has been sold.


Rod Erickson's dream of converting the historic Fireside Lodge site into a city park on Spirit Lake will become reality.

The Spirit Lake Urban Renewal Agency has purchased the property on the mill pond from Rod and his wife Nancy.


Plans for the three-story, 6,000 -square-foot Fireside Lodge  - built in 1907 and formerly the Panhandle Lumber Company office are unclear.

The building was moved to it's current location from a nearby location in 1945.  Rod, who started playing music in the building in 1970, 
acquired it in 1989.  The Ericksons have run a bed and breakfast, gift shop, restaurant and RV park on the property.  The business has been
closed during the winters while Rod and Nancy take their music tour on the road but this coming year the Lodge will not reopen.


Rod and Nancy wish to thank all their loyal friends who have joined them at the Lodge over the years and invite you to Rod's website
