Quaint and exceptionally clean. You can’t beat the service. The kitchen was remodeled in 2013 and the decor is a tribute to the American farmer with its barnyard animal and Americana touches. Cabin is close to the boat launch and the resort Mini Store - if Ice, Pop, Pizza, and other grocery items are needed during your Minnesota getaway.
Sleeping arrangement: Two bedrooms have a double bed, the third bedroom has two twins, and there is a futon in the living room.
The chef of your group will appreciate the Weber Charcoal Grill. The kids will appreciate the outdoor heated swimming pool (June-Labor Day) and s'mores by the lake. The fisherman will appreciate the Dock space that comes with the cabin rental. Fishing on Big Sand Lake is great for Northern, Walleye, Largemouth Bass, Bluegills, and Crappies. We also have a large fish cleaning house with electric & water.
Being outside is common at the resort, so ask us about our lawn games. Just enjoy being surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota. Why not explore miles of lush forest on your ATV. The SOO Line Recreational Trail is nearby. Of course to live like a local your should explore golf courses (like Pine River Country Club), fine restaurants, and the Northern Lights casino. Hill Annex Mine State Park and Heartland Trail are good for hiking and a picnic.
A great vacation at an affordable price! The resort amenities are wonderful. Bocce, Horseshoes, Ladder Golf, Bean Bag Toss, Basketball hoop and more.
Things to remember: Bring kitchen & bath towels, personal soaps and toiletries - and your camera because there are many varieties of wildflowers and gorgeous sunsets.

All the way up from Phoenix to fish southern & northern Minn. We have been to a lot of places but this by far is the best of them all. The hosts are just as nice as can be. We enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for your hospitality. Jim & Pete, Phoenix, Arizona
We have enjoyed our time here at Balsam Bay Resort. We are here with several family members, and have 3 cabins and some camping spots. It has been a nice place to hold our annual family gathering in Northern MN. The fishing has been very good, probably the best in any family trip we have taken. We have enjoyed the game room, bonfires, biking and fishing. We have all had a great time and hope to return again. Dean, Cammi, Dustin & Dylan, Cosmos, MN
