A Premier Northern Minnesota Resort

The Perfect Family Vacation or Weekend Getaway Without the Airfare

End of Season THANK YOU

Another Minnesota Family Vacation and Golf Season ends!

Summers in Minnesota go by so fast. We are busy taking reservations for May 17 – September 15, 2019, so please contact us for information! We are often asked if we close the resort for the winter. Although we don’t take individual reservations from mid-September through mid-May, we do open for private group retreats.

Have a wonderful Winter, see you next summer!
