Memory-Making Stays...When a day trip to the Rainy Lake area just isn’t enough, join the long list of resort goers who come for extended stays throughout the year, embracing the unique beauty and offerings of each Minnesota season.
Memories are made at resorts. From kids of all ages toting fishing poles, to hikers gearing up with backpacks, and snowmobilers and cross-country skiers clutching trail maps, there’s plenty to like about the resort scene. That’s why most folks look forward to coming back pretty much from the moment they’re packing up to leave.
You get to enjoy increasingly rare quality time together for a good stretch of days that over the years are recalled as some of the best times. Each resort has its own unique and interesting history, culture and offerings onsite and nearby.
Here are a few options to consider:
Island View Lodge and cabin rentals on the shores of Rainy Lake.
Sha Sha Resort on Rainy Lake at the tip of a wooded island named for Chief Sha Sha from the voyageur days.
Thunderbird Lodge, touted as a full-service resort offering rooms and cabins - only a half mile from the entrance to Voyageurs National Park.
Rainy Lake Inn at Tara’s Wharf, a bed and breakfast on Rainy Lake in Rainier.
Woody’s Rainy Lake Resort also located in Ranier.
