Beautiful and relaxing place to stay with family or friends of all ages, many land or water activities to take advantage of OR just sit in a lawn chair and enjoy the amazing view and nature at its best. The rooms are clean and well stocked for any occasion. The people working the resort are very helpful and friendly. Shopping... More

Nice family resort. We stayed in a lodge room rather than a cabin. Very nice. All rooms have a lake view. Comfortable accommodations. Breakfast n the morning. Mostly carbs, but nice to have. Would be great if they would get the coffee going earlier for us early risers as there are no coffee pots in the rooms. Paul Bunyan bike... More

We stayed at the Wilderness Resort, same owners, we had a mix up with our reservations and they did not have our room so they let us have a Villa at the Wilderness Resort, it was about 15 min away, the Villa was wonderful and the staff at both places were very helpful. We had a problem with the tv... More

We found this resort to be a great value for the price! We took advantage of the fall special of 4 nights for the price of 3 and wanted to make sure that we had a two bedroom, two bath unit. While the accommodations were in a townhouse, we never heard our neighbors at all. The unit.is right on the... More

The resort overall is great for kids especially little ones under the age of five. The staff is very friendly and there a lot of amenities including bikes and water sports included in the price of the cabin. The breakfast facility was very clean and well presented. Unfortunately could say only a few days but would deathly recommend a week... More

The cabin itself is BEAUTIFUL no doubt about that, the cabin we stayed in had two bedrooms, the upstairs one had a queen bed and and a single bed with a bathroom and the downstairs bedroom had a queen bed and a bathroom across the hall. The cabins are... More

Loved that the resort sits right on the lake shore! Easy access to swimming for the kiddos, and the sunsets by the bonfire are just perfect. We caught fish right off the dock and in the boat. Very nice place.

We recently returned from a 4-night stay at Good Ol' Days. My husband and I had never been up to the Brainerd/Nisswa area so we were excited to spend Thanksgiving "up north" with our two young children (ages 2 and 4). Upon check-in, we were greeted by a nice young girl who directed us to our cottage. The cottage is... More
