Unique Features

Our guests love spending time on Lake Edward so we include paddleboats, kayaks, paddleboards, canoe, and life jackets with each rental. Looking for more lake fun? Rent a boat or pontoon right at the resort. Soak up the sun on the loungers along the beach.

Lake Edward is home to walleye, northern pike, large & small mouth bass, sunfish, and others. Brainerd is known as a premier fishing destination.

All of our cabins offer stunning views of the lake and sunsets. Tons of green space for yard games. Spend time around the your own private campfire, roast marshmallows, and share campfire stories. We sell firewood and deliver it right to your fire pit. There’s room to park two vehicles next to the cabin. We also offer additional parking at the resort for extra cars, boats, and trailers.

Things To Do

Swim or wade in the crystal clear water of Lake Edward. Kids love to build sandcastles on our large beach area. Ask us about our walking map. 3-4 miles of walking trails right from the resort. Also enjoy access to two playgrounds, carpetball, hook and ring, horseshoe pit, tetherball, basketball, and volleyball. Massages are also available upon request at or near the resort.

Explore the Brainerd area: Zip line tours, festivals, golfing, hunting, shopping, hiking trails, and more.

Staying in the winter? Brainerd offers downhill skiing, tubing in Breezy Point, and cross-country skiing at the Northland Arboretum. More than 1,200 miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails run through the Brainerd area. No matter the season, Brainerd has endless amounts of opportunity.

Marty and Sue, Thanks again for the wonderful family vacation you provided for us. The cabin with awesome kitchen, bathrooms & beds, the grounds, beach, pontoon, and all the fun things to do and still have enough space to feel private are AMAZING, the fact that you keep up with it all is equally amazing. The whole place is kept so clean and maintained right down to the wonderful firewood you brought to us nightly. Not many, if any resorts are keeping up to these standards anymore.
How children friendly this resort is – perfect for family reunions, the clean cabins & water, privacy
Fishing! Reunion Lodge layout superb, awesome!
Safe for the kids to play, clean, beautiful, friendly, homey, playground. This is a great place. We appreciated your hospitality & friendliness. Thank you
