Things to do during "cabin time" in Detroit Lakes
Compare Detroit Lakes vacation rentals. Your northwestern Minnesota cabin in Detroit Lakes places you right in the middle of one of the best fishing destinations in the state with over 400 lakes in the area. Big Detroit Lake is a favorite fishing hot spot for Muskie, Walleye, Large-mouth Bass, and Northern Pike. You can fish right off the all-accessible pier at the City Beach on Detroit Lake. Or maybe you’d just like to spend a day swimming and sunbathing at the popular mile-long, sugar-sand City Beach with a family game of frisbee golf at the course in the adjacent City Park.
Looking for a boutique outfit, that special piece of handcrafted art, antiques, or a flea market bargain? The Detroit Lakes area is an “Up North” shopping destination. Check out the Washington Square Mall located in the downtown area for your unique fashion purchases. The Shady Hollow Flea Market features diverse merchandise from jewelry to fine collectables to old tools. SuLaine’s Antique Mall is 14,000 sq. ft. with over 70 vendors offering all types of vintage items. You’ll find casual, ethnic and fine dining options just a short drive from your Detroit Lakes vacation home, many with outstanding views of the surrounding lakes.

The Detroit Mountain and Mountain View Recreation Areas are a year round recreational facility with seasonal skiing, snowboarding, tubing, x-country skiing, hiking and mountain biking. A wooden “roller coaster” portion of the trail challenges mountain bikers to improve their balance and technical skills. Use the lifts to take you and your bike up to the top of the mountain and find yourself cruising down the flow trails with their ladder bridges and wooden ramps. What a ride! The Mountain View area offers you a woodsier mountain biking experience. There are so many exciting recreational options to choose from within minutes of your Detroit Lakes cottage rental, you may just have to visit more than once.
