still a nice little town with Main Street a few blocks long. Short enough to walk up one side and down the other with a great variety of shops

Make sure you try to do a pontoon ride (rented from Chase on the Lake) and enjoy a lazy ride around some of the lake area. Oh, fishing is also fantastic.

This lake is huge! Plenty of space for anything you would want to do on a lake. Cruising, Tubing, water skiing, and of course all the fishing. Its so beautiful. It can be cold seeing as its in the northern part of MN. If getting away from the city is what you want this is a great place to go.

The lake is beautiful, although a bit cold due t the unusual chilly weather in Minnesota. Pretty sailboats and a nice public beach, and the setting is lovely.

Just the right amount of drive time to get us away from it all and relax. We love The Village Squarer Coffee Shop in town and have stayed at The Leech Lake B&B and are in love with Trappers Landing! Beautiful, warm and peaceful area to be! Perfect!

The lake was frozen for our New Year's visit, but it is beautiful Spring through Fall. Very nice to stay at The Chase on the Lake Resort, and enjoy Leech Lake views!
