Things to do during "cabin time" in Lake Shore
Gull Lake Narrows resorts in Lake Shore, MN is where life gets a whole lot better. Your Lake Shore, MN cabin is located in the very heart of central Minnesota’s Lake County. With seven lakes to explore within the boundaries of Lake Shore, MN, you’ll have the beauty of nature surrounding you. You can fish for trout in the beautiful Stony Brook Creek in the 80-acre Fritz Loven Park. A playground, picnic area, and hiking trails meandering through the splendor of a tall conifer forest of balsam, fir, spruce, white and Norway pine trees make this stop a must-see for the whole family. In the winter you can x-country ski or snowshoe on the trails. Before you hit those trails though, you just may want to have breakfast at the Iron Waffle Coffee Company located in its own cute cabin-inspired building where you can sip your favorite freshly crafted espresso drink.
Just a short drive from your central Minnesota cottage near Brainerd is the Pines Golf Course at the Grand View Lodge. Three nine hole courses - the Lake, Woods and Marsh - provide 27 holes traversing a landscape of forest, water and meticulously maintained greens. Conde Nast Traveler rated it as one of the Top 121 Golf Resorts in the World.
The trails at neighboring Pillsbury State Forest offer picturesque outdoor opportunities to see rare wildflowers, including the exquisite yellow lady’s slipper. Many small lakes and ponds in this forest of conifers and deciduous trees provide that chance to glimpse a beaver, bear, great blue heron, or other wildlife in this state park that was the first designated Minnesota state forest. With 27 miles of mountain biking trails, you’ll want to bring your bikes or rent some from Trailblazer Bikes in Nisswa. When you return back home to the comfort of your Gull Lake vacation home after a day in the woods, you’ll feel like you have really seen the beauty located in your own backyard.
