This resort was recommended to us by my husbands's colleague. It is beautifully located steps from the water. Each unit has its own dock, which is great for us because we belong to a boat club and we have boats we can use at Gull Lake Marina. So we left our car at the marina and drive the boat back....

We've been coming here for about 7 years now. We enjoy the privacy this end-of-the-road resort offers. The hosts are wonderful people. The cabins are right on the lakeshore, although we look out on a marsh area. There are boats to rent. The reception area offers some common supplies and some games like ping pong and foosball, as well as... More

Nice for family reunion getaways and fishing groups. -- cabins are modern circa 2000. Photos of activities are misleading as tennis court, kids area and lodge... More

My husband and I just stayed at Gull Lake Resort this past weekend and had a great stay! We rented the one bedroom cabin (cabin 1) that had a king bed and everything we needed for a weekend away!

We started going to Gull Lake about 10 years ago and had excellent fishing. We found this resort a few years ago, and have been returning for family vacation ever since. The only resort on the lake that welcomes dogs. Cabins and condos are clean and very well equipped in the kitchen for cooking. Fish cleaning building is very nice,... More

Thank you Ruthie for making our 3 day stay a wonderful one. The cabin was comfortable and had a great view of the sunsets over the lake. This was our first time to this area of Minnesota and hope to go back again next year. Thanks again.

We have been coming here with family for over 25 years. The setting is great and the sunsets are awe inspiring. Ruthie does her best to make the cabins homey and the guests feel welcomed.
