Some of the state's most popular lakeside resorts include Ludlow's Island Resort, Lost Lake Lodge, and Chase on the Lake resort.

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.
