My husband's family has been visiting Nelson's Resort since the early 80's. We will continue to make our yearly pilgrimage with our own four children who consider it "their place." If you love to fish, relax, hike and enjoy the outdoors, Nelson's is the place for you. We consider the fishing guides part of the family and have had great luck fishing catching walleye, trout, bass and crappie. There is a main dining lodge which has good food for breakfast lunch and dinner. It is an out of the way place with a lot of charm.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In 1931 John and Millie Nelson held a dream of a first class resort on the edge of the wilderness. You can find this dream still alive and nestled on Crane Lake in the north woods. Still operated by the Nelson family, the tradition of friendly hospitality, impeccable cleanliness and individual service awaits each and every guest. Each of our log and pine paneled cabins along Nelson's 1-1/2 miles of lakeshore awaits your visit. Nelson's Resort is truly a vacation paradise. Bordering Voyageur's National Park, Nelson's Resort is a scenic 5-hour drive from the Twin Cities and only a day's drive from such cities as Chicago, Des Moines, Milwaukee and Omaha. ... more less
