    Perfect resort for family get togethers. Has every lake vacation amenity you could possibly want, but quiet and close enough to Brainerd/Nisswa. Only place we stay. Well worth the money. You will not be disappointed! And daughter has great luck fishing off the various docks!More

    We are 80 but in good health. Love to take boat trips. Shop quaint stores. Like nice restaurants. We are looking a relaxing time but still have things to see or do other than just sit around. Are you close to the water?
