What do Ritter Cottage Rentals offer?


These inviting cottages are located on the shores of Little St. Germain Lake which, with 14 miles of shoreline and 980 acres of water, isnít so little! Whether you’re interested in relaxing on the beach, swimming, boating, or fishing for musky, northern, walleye, bass or pan fish, Little St. Germain Lake is a wonderful place to spend quality time. The lake, shaped somewhat like the letter Y, has three large bays, each offering something different. West Bay is the deepest bay and locals fish there for walleye; South Bay has some wonderful weed beds where anglers try for northern, bass and crappies; and East Bay has two islands to explore, and a large weed bed that often produces different varieties of pan fish throughout the year. St Germain Sport Marine rents ski boats and wave runners for those looking for some action-filled fun, or use the resort's free paddle boats to slowly cruise along the shoreline. We also have a rental pontoon boat; scroll down for details.




Our cottages are nicely appointed with many amenities including kitchens that are small but include all the basics (microwaves, coffeemakers, wine glasses), comfortable living rooms with cable television, updated bathrooms with either tubs or showers, and decks with patio furniture and gas grills. Our cottages have either two or three bedrooms offering queen and full beds, and bedding is provided. The cottages also offer either hide-a-beds or futon couches for extra sleeping space. Seven of the cottages have wood-burning fireplaces, and firewood is included in the cottage rate. Our cozy, comfortable cottages are ready to meet your accomodation needs while you enjoy your lakeside vacation at the resort.
