If you are in need of handicap accessible options for your vacation, take some time and learn about what Golden Eagle Lodge has to provide you.
We offer 2 Barrier Free Cabins, Cabin #6 and Cabin #7. In fact, Golden Eagle Lodge was the first resort in the state to build cabins using all the codes set by the state of Minnesota! Each cabin is equipped with a fireplace woods stove as well as a gas wall heater. For your outdoor enjoyment, both cabins offer a deck and/or screen porch as well as a ramp, rather than steps. One of our previous guests, when we asked her for comments, advised – “anything can be called accessible, but not barrier free, and THESE CABINS ARE BARRIER FREE”.
The bathrooms are eight feet wide and have a whirlpool tub with a loading platform at one end and a removable hand held shower at the other end. A seat is also provided for use inside the tub for those who wish to shower.
In the kitchen, you will find that the cabinets are lowered in height and indented at the bottom for the foot rests of a wheelchair to go underneath. All pipes under the sink are set back and insulated against heat. The switches on the ovens are located in the front for easy access. Like all of our cabins, the kitchen is also fully equipped with all your dishes, pots, pans, and utensils. A microwave, toaster, and drip coffee maker is also provided.
The pathways to the lake are hard packed, wide, and gently slopped. Your private dock is eight feet wide so you can fish from it or just relax and watch the beautiful sunsets and blue waters of Flour Lake.
The store and check in area at Golden Eagle lodge are easily accessible. It’s only a few feet from the gravel parking area to the wooden stoop, which goes directly into the store; no steps or steep inclines. Once in the lodge, the main lounge area and restrooms are down 4 steps (for handicap accessible restroom, see campground shower house below).
Golden Eagle Campground and Shower House
All our campsites are level and easily accessed with site #7 also offering a fire ring with a raised grill rack for easier use by someone in a wheelchair. The picnic table is also designed for wheelchair seating at one end.
The Campground Shower House, located just across the gravel parking lot from the Lodge, has 2 bathrooms. One bathroom is fully accessible with enough room for wheelchair rotation and includes a roll-in shower; it also offers a removable hand held shower at one end and a folding bench on the other end. There is one step to get onto the wrap-a-round wood deck at this building but a portable ramp is available if needed.
We have fourteen foot, deep “V” Lund boats. A wheelchair will sit between the seats for fishing or just riding around the lake. Also available are two pontoon boats. Ramps are also available for the pontoons, if needed, just note that with the newer model pontoons we have, wheelchairs no longer fit through the doorways.
