This was our 8th year at Sleeping Fawn. Luckily we are able to rent all the cabins for our annual family tradition of "going to the lake" - (family that now spreads to both coasts). Every year we are surprised by the changes and upgrades. This year we loved our new deck, sliding glass door, pocket doors to the bedrooms,... More

Our family has been enjoying Sleeping Fawn for the past four years. We keep coming back mainly due to the owners hospitality, and the resort grounds and cabins which are superbly maintained or constantly upgraded! Joe is always tidying up something! Our kids love playing on the big sandy beach and enjoying quiet evenings of s'mores at our personal fire... More

Sleeping Fawn is a place where you can rest in a hammock, take a nap, read on the beach, fish, and grill out. You can also take all types of day trips. The Headwaters of the Mississippi River, Chippewa National Forrest, and various other area festivals are nearby and such fun. This year we got attend the second annual Emmaville... More

What a perfect resort in every way! The layout of the cabins and the views of the lake are outstanding! There are plenty of activities and sporting equipment to use from shuffleboard, to kayaks to volleyball. The beach is well-maintained and is very "kid friendly". The cabins are very clean and seem to be updated annually. I am so glad... More

I found the views here to be amazing. All the cabins have great lake views. Foggy mornings, beautiful sunsets. Loons calling across the lake. I felt like we were IN nature, not just looking at it from outside. Thanks Joe!

What an amazing resort! From the moment my family arrived, we never wanted to leave this quaint, serene, beautiful, friendly, and inviting place! Sleeping Fawn offers so many family friendly activities (e.g. volleyball, bad mitten, shuffle board, tether ball, nature trails, boats, fishing, canoes, paddle boards, playground, kayaks, bag toss) in an environment just big enough for the kids to...

Joe and Ellen, your resort is lovely! There is a lot for people to do while staying here, and I really enjoyed hearing the loons throughout our visit! It was very peaceful, and I will definitely be planning a return trip!!

We stayed in cabin 1. Well stocked kitchen. Clean rooms and living room. Cozy with a nice deck! We were there with our 6 & 9 year old sons. They loved fishing off the dock, kayaking, and paddle boarding. The raft and trampoline were fun too. The lake is small but quiet. We rented the pontoon boat one day. Enjoyed... More

I took my 2 sons up to the Itasca area for a few days of camping, exploring, and enjoying the area. We typically stay at state parks when we stay in a tent. This time I explored other options, and found Sleeping Fawn online. From the moment we arrived Ellen and Joe made us feel so welcome. Their tent sites... More

Thank you Stacy and boys. It is always nice to know how we compare to State Parks. We assure that a stay with us will be memorable. We are glad they boys enjoyed our wide variety of water toys included in rates. Coffee is always a must while camping. Glad we are able to provide it. Joe More
