About Us

Cedar Rapids Lodge Family Owned an Operated for Generations

The Bloomquist family holds the fifth ownership of Cedar Rapids Lodge, built in 1933 by Harry Archer from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

He built the cabins by hand with Tamarac logs harvested around the lake. Ray and Norma Williams owned the resort from 1944-1971, adding a swimming pool in 1965 to create a "family" resort atmosphere. Don and Vivian Helgeson bought the resort in 1971 and raised their 4 daughters here, staying until 1987 when they sold the resort to Jen’s parents, Steve and Pat Addler. They moved here from Illinois in 1987 with 4 young children and put their heart and soul into the resort for 30 years. Jen and Marc Bloomquist purchased this piece of heaven in 2017 and are fortunate that their parents have stuck around to help. They love it too much to leave! Jen and Marc are now raising their three kids at the resort and couldn't be more excited.
