The Brainerd Lakes region is just under two hours away from the lodge and provides visitors with tons of entertainment options. You can enjoy a number of outdoor activities including cross country skiing, snowmobiling, or snowshoeing.

Some of the state's most popular lakeside resorts include Ludlow's Island Resort, Lost Lake Lodge, and Chase on the Lake resort. These destinations offer exciting water activities during the summer months, like paddle-boarding, kayaking, and jet-skiing. Travelers can even take canoe trips or rent fishing boats to explore the area even further.

The best part? All three resorts are pet-friendly! Of course, if you prefer the mountains, you can always enjoy a trip to Eagle Ridge Resort or the Bull Hill Ski Resort instead.

Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that Minnesota is home to several championship golf courses located around the state. Some of the top golfing destinations include the Quarry at Giants Ridge,  Wilderness at Fortune Bay, and Breezy Point Resort and Golf Course.

Those who prefer more private arrangements for family vacations can book a stay at one of Minnesota's wilderness resort villas. These lakeside properties provide a quiet way to enjoy water sports, cross-country skiing, and and even ice fishing during a trip to the twin cities.
