John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon

Dates vary slightly from year to year but around the end of January of each year you have the opportunity to watch the world famous John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon if you are a guest in our winter log cabins.

The John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon is considered one of the most prestigious sled dog races in the lower 48 States, attracting mushers and spectators from around the world including many from the United States, Canada & Europe. It is one of the longest races outside Alaska, covering nearly 400 miles of difficult terrain.

The 2009 John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon route brought mushers right across Loon Lake and through the Loon Lake Lodge grounds.  Mushers in the John Beargrease race came off of Loon Lake right at our boat dock.
