Been vacationing at Kohl's for the past 11 years with our children and grandchildren. Great owners, well kept grounds, clean comfortable and well equipped cabins. Grandchildren call it a little bit of heaven!

We just loved the location of Kohl's. It has the Up North feel and is only minutes away from stores and nice places to eat! When we walked into our room, the fireplace had already been turned on and a few side lights were on to make it a gorgeous entry. Enjoyed the hot tub, beds were comfortable, and the... More

We are VERY SATISFIED with Kohls Resort and the way the owners manage their business. They have made our family vacation THE BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER: nice cabins, boats, kayaks, fishing, inflatables, gorgeous lake views, sand beach, good hiking, big offering of activities inside and outside the facilities, day trips and fire-pits. Tons of activities for the kids. Very friendly... More

Kohl's Resort is one-of-a-kind! The location, accommodations, activities, rentals, really everything was awesome! Sure, this is no butler at your service place, but if you want to get away from city life for a while and enjoy nature with a little pampering on the side, this is your place. Fantastic family activities, your kids will love it! The owners take... More

PROS: This resort has a family feel to it. Many water toys are free to use. The pool room is large with rainy day activities. (Pool isn't heated.) The kitchens are well stocked and very clean. Cabins are nice ( need to pack all your beach and bath towels ). Staff is friendly. BUT... CONS: the owners personality is not... More

I read a couple of the other reviews. If you are looking to be pampered, a hotel style resort might be better. If you want to stay in a cabin on a lake, this is a good one. Plenty of kid activities everyday. The canoe trip was a good relaxing couple of hours as well, with a good secluded lunch... More

Short Review: bats in cabin, helpful not necessarily friendliest staff, most everything overpriced, fun beach activites, wifi bad, dirty pool and hot tub, decent beds, no oven. I would recommend it at a way lower price than $240/night and you have to be willing to put up with the bats. Long Review: We stayed in The Bear's Den in July... More

We've stayed at many resorts through out the years, and this is our fourth stay at Kohls, and are never disappointed as this resort offers something for everyone. It is on a nice lake for fishing (we always catch fish), and the water is good for swimming, and water sports. Near the resort are good roads for biking or going... More

My daughter outgrew (4 kids and 2 adults) staying at our house. Upon recommendation of a friend I booked a cabin for 8. This allowed 2 of us from Bemidji to visit our Houston family and spend the night. I held Christmas dinner there with 11 additional Bemidji folks joining us. The cabin was big enough for all. The pool... More

We stayed over the New Years Holiday to celebrate a late Christmas gathering. We had rented the large cabin pictured in this ad. Beautiful place, plenty of room , perfect for our gathering. We had planned to go skiing but with the exceptionally cold winter we've been experiencing Buena Vista was shut down...only in Minnesota, LOL. The kids went shopping... More
