We will want to rest for a while on arrival (have booked room to do this), but wanted to know what others' would recommend us doing for the rest of the day - any ideas would be appreciated.

          Hello, At Lake Duluti there are hardly any insects. But for good measure, insect repellents are provided in each room.
