resort vacation? You never have to leave
the premises if you don’t want to. Usually
located on a lake or river, resorts give
their guests access to boats, swimming
beaches and other water-based fun, like
hydro-bikes and floating trampolines.
Some also have heated swimming pools
and hot tubs.
For those who like to fish, many
resorts can set you up with a guide, a
boat and everything you need for a day
of chasing walleye, bass and many other
species. Or bring your own boat and pull
it right up to the dock outside your cabin.
If you like to have someone else do the
cooking while you’re on vacation, many
resorts feature full-service restaurants
open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some
have snack bars, convenience stores and
pubs to supplement your meals. Or take
part in a true Minnesota tradition: Aspen
Resort in Orr hosts nightly campfires
and weekly potluck dinners, and Nelson’s
Resort on Crane Lake is known for its
Thursday night smorgasbord.
On-site spas can be a draw for couples
retreats and girlfriend getaways. Book
your services, such as massages, facials,
body treatments and nail services, à la
carte when you arrive, or as part of a
lodging package. A few resorts with full-
service spas include Wilderness Lodge in
Bigfork, Grand Casino in Hinckley and
Larsmont Co;ages in Two Harbors.
For golfers, around a dozen northeast
Minnesota resorts have courses on
the property; some, like Giants Ridge,
have more than one. Or seek out
unique activities, like line dancing at
White Eagle Resort on Lake Vermilion
and yoga at Northwind Lodge in Ely.
Where Friends, Fishing
and Fun Meet.
