The spacious property is right on Lake Edward and provides a beautiful view of the water. This cabin is perfect for large families or groups who are looking to escape to the beach on a fun summer vacation. Each cabin comes with its own private patio, charcoal grill, picnic table and fire pit. Free Wi-Fi, cable TV and use of the paddleboards, paddleboats, double and single kayaks and canoe. Life jackets are included!
Between mid-June and mid-August, you can book a “week,” checking in after 9 am on Saturday and checking out the following Friday before 10 am. You can also book a less than week stay; Friday – Monday for 3 nights or Monday – Friday for 4 nights. Either one is the same rate for the same size cabin. From May 1 to mid-June and mid-August to September 30 we have a minimum 2 night stay.
Sleeping Arrangement: Two queen beds and two full beds in the bedrooms. There is also a pullout bed in the living room that can sleep an additional two people for a maximum capacity of 10 individuals. Linens are provided for each bed.
Lake Edward is a very special part to the Shing Wako Resort. All of the cabins are very close to the water, providing easy access to the water and great opportunities for fun water activities. The lake is over 2,000 acres with a 100% sand shore and average depth of 15 feet. This makes the lake perfect for swimming, fishing, water skiing, boating, kayaking and jet skiing.
We also believe in being conscious resource managers in order to maintain a healthy ecosystem in Lake Edward and the surrounding area of the resort. 150 ft of our 450 ft shoreline is undeveloped to allow nature to filter the water running back into the lake and continue to provide safe habitat for the shoreland wildlife. We also compost, recycle and use plant based cleaning supplies throughout the resort.
The Shing Wako Resort provides so many fun activities during your stay. On the water, you can rent a boat or bring your own. Lake Edward is also great for fishing with a plentiful supply of walleye, northern pike, bass and sunfish. Kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and life jackets are also free to use with your cabin rental. The sandy shores make our beach perfect for relaxing on a lounge chair or playing in the sand. The resort also has several acres of green space to run around in and 3-4 mile walking trails. The paved paths through the property are great for biking, skating and scooting too.
The town of Brainerd, Minnesota also has much to offer during the summer and winter. Check out local farmers markets, parks, fishing guides and horse stables. You can also take a scenic hike through a state park. During the winter, there are over 1,200 miles of snowmobile trails throughout Brainerd. Ski Gull near Gull Lake is also a great ski hill for the whole family. There is so much to do!
