Things To Do

Enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota, while steps from the outdoor heated swimming pool (June-Labor Day). Since fishing is sort of popular around here, you might bring your boat. We do have Dock space for one boat that is provided with cabin rental with plenty of parking. The lakeside fire pit is a great place to end the day with memorable views and tasty s’mores. Wait until you see the star-filled sky.

Adventure on land could include a round of golf, eating at local restaurants, and testing your luck at the Northern Lights casino.

Things to remember: Bring kitchen & bath towels, personal soaps and toiletries and charcoal for the supplied Weber Charcoal Grill! Our endless resort activities will please the whole family! Remember your camera because there are many varieties of wildflowers and gorgeous lake sunsets.

Another year of family fun. It was a varied weather week with showers, sun, thunderstorms, sun. Mosquitoes were a rarity, although a few horse & deer flies hung around. I so enjoy the wonderful sunsets on the dock and great heated pool surrounded by lush trees. Where else can I swim in a forest? Many eagles and osprey. The baby loon was a treat. Even saw a pelican! Looking forward to next year. Mark & Cindy Schreiber
