In addition, there is another conference room we call Anna’s Reception Pavilion, named after our dear cousin in Sweden. With laminate flooring and a distinctive parlor stove, this room is very versatile. There are so many picture windows in the pavilion that it seems like you are outdoors.  
Many weddings have taken place at Anderson Lodge. Our spacious conference room and the reception pavilion are perfect for a reception or family gathering. Anniversary parties and festive birthday parties are popular events as well. We offer a special reception rate package for such gatherings. The possibilities are endless. Check us out for your next important celebration.


The lodge’s interior immediately catches the attention of every visitor. Hints of old Sweden enhance the warm and welcome atmosphere and represent a collection of family heirlooms.  The open beam ceilings and log pillars create a true lodge-like feeling.
The Main Lodge with the Malung Bunkhouse and Dalarna Cabin makes up our largest rental facility. Groups enjoy the quality accommodations well suited for groups ranging from 20-60 overnight guests and more! There are 43 single beds and 12 double beds within the Main Lodge site.  The bedrooms vary in size as some are private guest rooms and some are dorm style.

Outdoor Setting

Visitors enjoy on-site activities such as tennis, softball, soccer, horseshoes, volleyball, and basketball.  We also offer 2 saunas for the adults and a wonderful play structure for the children.  The covered outdoor campfire amphitheater is wonderful for many events. It has a campfire in the center with a stage at one end. The bench seating in a semi-circle can hold 75 or more people! What fun this is on an outing for any purpose.   You are never at a loss for ways to enjoy your stay at the lodge.   
The newly created dining patios are something to see.  The curving rock walls extend gracefully into the lush forest.  The outdoor dining patios have a view of giant ferns and Douglas fir trees dripping with moss. Everywhere you look you are impressed with the lush natural surroundings.  Winter and summer, the lodge has many opportunities for groups to get away and relax in comfort.
