From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Talmoon was settled in the first part of this century by Swedes, who named the town "Tal Moen", which means little hill in the pinewoods in Swedish.

One of the first settlers in the Talmoon area was J.F. Sundloff, an immigrant who took one of the first homesteads on the shore of Little Turtle Lake. The Sundloff's cabin was a well-known stopping place for travelers throughout the area, and later became Allen's Resort. a popular small resort in the 1920s.

The post office in Talmoon was first known as "Mack", then changed to "Hayslip's Corner" in 1938. When Mr. Hayslip sold his business and moved to California in 1939, the post office became "Talmoon".

Three Cedars Resort is a family resort vacation destination located on the east shore of Jessie Lake, one of the top walleye lakes in Itasca County.  The resort is located 37 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, Minn., and approximately 4 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul. 

The resort's eight cabins are nestled in 16 acres of pristine northwoods at the heart of the Chippewa National Forest.  You are invited to experience the Northwood's finest year-round hospitality this year when you plan your Minnesota resort vacation at Three Cedars Resort.

We are Tiffany and Dennis Reibel, the owners of Three Cedars.  We purchased the resort in August 2000 and have completely renovated the five existing cabins and built three new cabins and a lodge since then.

Now, in addition to the great lake views, sunsets, woods, wildlife and fishing opportunities that have made this resort an annual favorite;  we've added a significant step forward to the resort's good looks and comfort.

Each cabin at Three Cedars has been individually decorated; and we've gone to great lengths to ensure your comfort and relaxation.  So pick up the phone and give us a call.  Reserve your next vacation at Three Cedars Resort.
