This was an unexpectedly quiet and friendly spot. We stayed in a lodge room....nothing fancy, but very clean and comfortable. The decor was not new, but pleasantly remodeled. Towels and sheets were comfortable, and there were plenty of pillows. We had to head out before breakfast as it was not served until 8:00 am. Staff were pleasant and the atmosphere... More

Our family stayed at this wonderful resort for a long weekend. Our lodge room was spacious and we really enjoyed the deck overlooking the lake and grounds. The landscaping was beautiful and manicured to perfection. Campfires each night at dusk, bikes to ride and kayaks to explore with. We loved taking the paved trail to town by bike. Only 6... More

We stayed at this resort June 2016. We loved everything about it. Great staff, lots to do, extremely clean. They had a great beach area with sand toys, kayaks, canoes and boats (the boats you can rent for a fee). They have bikes, yard games, basketball and volleyball areas. Right near shops and restaurants. We only stayed for the weekend... More

We had a large group stay for a family reunion, and we ranged in age from infant to 70. Everybody had a wonderful time! This resort is absolutely worth it if you have a group of people who enjoy the outdoors. Some people checked out the bikes and went for a ride on the Paul Bunyan Trail. All of the... More

Very good place for a family vacation. Kids had lot of fun - biking, geocaching, camp fire. The service was great. Cabin was in good condition and had a great view of the lake with a volley ball court ( little close to the water but not that close). Over all a good vacation for a first week of April.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in their lodge room. The room was nice, however there was no coffee pot in the room and breakfast (including coffee) didn't start until 8 am Saturday and Sunday. My toddler accidentally smeared a raspberry on the sheet and they charged me $35 for the stain. I actually talked to the owner Tom, and he... More

Overall this was a great place to stay. We were in Brainerd for a dance competition so this was a great option. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage and it was very clean and nicely decorated. We had 3 teenage girls with us and the loft worked great so that they had their own space to get ready. We... More

Nice family resort. We stayed in a lodge room rather than a cabin. Very nice. All rooms have a lake view. Comfortable accommodations. Breakfast n the morning. Mostly carbs, but nice to have. Would be great if they would get the coffee going earlier for us early risers as there are no coffee pots in the rooms. Paul Bunyan bike... More
