If you're looking for a nice spot for a getaway in northern MN this makes for an excellent choice. It's got all sorts of amenities and really fanatastic Lakeside cabins. Check out the floor plans and inside pictures on their website for details behind their 4 bedroom three bath layouts. In addition to the sandy beach with a roped off... More

I recently spent a girls "scrapbooking weekend" at Clamshell for the second year in a row. The cabins are beautiful, the resort is very clean and well kept, and the hospitality is excellentt! Dave and Lisa were so warm and welcoming in all of the contacts I had with them before our visit. (E-mail, voice mail, and even a hand... More

This is a fabulous resort, but make sure to confirm your reservation. My husband and I booked a 10-day stay and arrived with three 5 year olds, a 4 mo old and grandma - plus 10 days worth of food, clothes, supplies, etc. They messed up our reservation and they said they were booked and we needed to come back...

We are pleased that you love our accommodations and our resort. We apologize for the mistake by our staff which resulted in your double booking - it was the first time in our 17 years as owners. We have taken steps in our reservation system to insure this does not happen again. We were glad that we could find you... More

We stayed here with friends for a long weekend getaway. The resort grounds are really nice. There is a sparkling outdoor pool and a fabulous sandy beach with plenty of lounge chairs. The parking situation seemed like it could get hectic when the cabins were all full, but we were there in mid-September so it wasn't bad for us. Our... More

A yearly trip to the Whitefish Chain has become a family tradition. After staying at different resorts each of those trips and not quite found what we were looking for, we have finally found that in Clamshell Beach Resort! Whew! We have children so the long list of amenities is wonderful and the two pools are just an added bonus... More

Unforgettable vacation with enough to do for everyone! The NEW cabins at Clam Shell Beach are roomy, clean, made with high quality construction (can't hear the person in the next room), have top-of-the-line appliances, A/C, and wonderful decor--right down to the hand-painted birch trees on the wall. But not only are the cabins modern and beautiful, the resort and beach... More

Went to the website to research the property and decided to stay. They put us in an OLD very outdated cabin when the website really only shows the new updated condo's. It was very expensive for what we got and very misleading. They need to revamp those cabins especially for what they are charging for them. The pool was really... More

All our guests choose their individual cottages and confirmation letters detail the accommodations they have reserved. We are proud of the detail we put into our website and provide virtual tours of all the cottages. Each of our cottages are different and some guests prefer granite countertops and slate flooring while others prefer the cozy feel of our classic cottages... More

We rented a small "Classic Cottage" on the beach for a week';s vacation. Accommodations were clean, neat and although a little dated was what you would expect for a "classic lakeside cottage", knotty pine interior and northwoods theme. The ceiling fans in all the bedrooms were a lifesaver on hot nights! Remember to bring towels as they are not provided,... More

Some friends and I have stayed at Clam Shell twice a year over the past three or four years, both Spring and Fall to scrapbook. We have stayed in two different cabins- both are well appointed, darling, and comfortable and SPOTLESS. I can not tell you how remarkably clean and fresh they are! The owners are on site, and clearly... More

We stayed at this resort and would recommend it to others. We stayed over the New Year holiday in one of the larger, upscale units. VERY nice and VERY clean. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked, and considering the cold weather the gas fireplace was wonderful! We were a large group of 6 adults and 5 kids and there... More
