I've stayed at Kohl's twice now already this winter, once to meet with friends and once with friends and their families. The cabins I have stayed at are amazing, spacious and the detail put into them is something so unique. The sunsets you see there are amazing, and the scenery is spectacular. The staff there is so amazing and let...

Dear Jim & Debbie, Wanted to drop you a note and tell you how pleased we were with our stay over the Christmas Week-end. I need to share a few things with you. We first wanted cabin 102 and that became unavailable, you up-graded us to #18 and that was perfect. ( The LORD works in mysterious ways). We have...

We've stayed in many of Kohl's various cabin options, and every one has been neat, clean, and spacious for the number of guests allowed. Love how my older kids talk about how we "always" went to Kohl's when they were little. While we didn't go every year, the years we did go made it seem like that in their memories....

Beth and Family, Thanks again for your kind words. It's always a pleasure to have your family here. We try our best to keep up with newer amenities. We have your ice cream waiting! Superman, Pirate's Bounty, Mississippi Mud, and more. So good... glad you have created memories including the best ice cream out there. We love it too. Debbie

Spent the weekend at Kohls resort with my girlfriend. The cabin came stocked with great amenities as well as a gift from the owners. The staff was amazing when it came to helping me find a good restaurant for my girlfriend and I. Can't wait to visit again!

Kohl's is a wonderful family owned and operated resort. It is located just minutes north of beautiful downtown Bemidji. The owners are warm and welcoming people.

We stayed here and had a wonderful time. The owners are helpful and welcoming. There are many things available for guests to do--swimming, fishing, canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, ping pong, pool. Our cabin was wonderful. It was fully stocked with everything we needed.

My experience at Kohl’s Resort in Bemidji, Minnesota was the absolute best. The resort contains two lakes, Big Turtle Lake and Little Turtle Lake, where the water is perfectly warm in July and the fish are delicious and always waiting to be caught. Rules laid out for boat speed and hours on the lake are not too strict, yet make...

We had a wonderful week at Kohl's in mid-July. As others have mentioned, they have everything! It really kept the kids occupied for the whole week.

“We toured all the cabins, they are all great. The staff was great in helping us choose. The website was a big help too.”

“The Bear's Den is great for four people and has a pullout couch that could sleep an additional two people but that couch didn't have linens so you would need to provide queen sized linens for that. The Bear's Den is poolside which can be a good thing but the curtains barely closed off the window so it was pretty easy for people in the pool area to peek in our room.”

“Don't rent one of the poolside rooms. They are claustrophobic with no view and not worth the price. If you are going to stay here, spend the extra money on a nicer room because the pool rooms are not a deal despite the lower price.”
