I have to say that Preston and Penny are the best. They accommodated our request to spend just one night before heading to another resort about 46 miles away. We are so glad we did. I have come to believe that a resort is not a place, but rather the people that own and operate the "place". The cabin we... More

My husband and I loved the amazing sunsets we viewed from the dock and our cabin. Having an eagle fly by topped it off. Very clean cabin! Friendly, caring and accomodating owners (Preston has an amazing radio voice). The short hiking area in the woods was great after a meal. Easy trip to go out to eat in Dorset, Nevis... More

I will start off by saying we already booked our cabin for next year. We had such a nice time. The resort was quiet and peaceful everything we were hoping for. Not a party resort unless your idea of a party is camp fires, fishing, grilling, kayaking, pedal boating, horse shoes, basketball, reading, board games, pool, picnics I could go... More

We just got back from an excellent week at Big Timber Lodge. As we left the lodge we asked our 4 kids ages 10-16 how they would rate the trip on a scale of 1-10. All 4 of them rated it 8.5-9.5. We have traveled to many beautiful places in the US and abroad so this was a huge compliment.... More

We have spent several spring and fall vacations at Big Timber over the past 8 years. Preston and Penny have been excellent hosts during our long and not-so-long stays. We enjoy our time relaxing, fishing and watching the grandkids play at the beach. The quiet of the evening fire time, breathtaking sunsets and the loons singing keep us coming back... More

Fun time had by all. Sitting around the campfire while the sun goes down, kids laughing and having fun. Couldn't ask for a more ideal location. Great beach for the kids and lots of fishing fun for all ages. We come back every year and enjoy it more and more. Penny and Preston are great!

We have stayed at Big Timber Lodge for the last 7 years and have always had a great experience. The fishing always good, the beach and cabins clean, and great hospitality from the owners Preston and Penny. We are a big family and have made great memories at Big Timber Lodge that will last us a lifetime! If you are... More

Let's start with the lake. The 3rd Crow Wing lake is an abundant fisherie. It was rainy and lets say not the best weather conditions, but our party caught more than enough fish. Wonderful lake. The cabins are older, but are put together nicely. There are plenty of things to do close by as well. We all had a really... More

Our mistake. We rented to an Agribusiness who was sponsoring a 'free' 3 day fishing (and drinking) party for their 40+ best customers. We are a family resort with family values and should not have rented to a group that: -Helped themselves to shovels from behind the closed doors of the shop (and left the lights on) so that they...

Our family has been coming to Big Timber for years! Our boys are grown now, but we still all come back as a family year after year, none of us would miss it! The knotty pine cabins are comfortable and the atmosphere is relaxed. Not a lot of frills in the cabin (be ready to do your own dishes!) but... More
