Gilbert Lodge is a Prairie Style building inspired by the works of Architect Frank Lloyd Wright.  Prairie has long horizontal lines and beautiful woodwork on the interior.  Gilbert Lodge is on the south side of Gilbert Lake, which is on the north side of Brainerd, MN.  The business is on the ground level floor with living quarters on on the upper floor.

View from the lake side.  A screened Minnesota Room is on the right.  The office is in the center, below the Great Room.  We are a member of the Gilbert Lake Association
