We spent 13 years going to Lykins and loved every minute... great people, exceptionally clean cabins and grounds, quiet location. Swingsets for the kids, tennis or basketball court available, camp store for small items. Close to town for necessities but far enough away to provide a relaxing experience.
I love this place! Roger, the owner is so friendly and welcoming! The cabins are so clean and well taken care of. The resort grounds are immaculate. They have a beautiful beach and a great doc system. There are a couple of play sets for the kids, including one by the beach which I think is brilliant! We will definitely be back!
We've occupied three different cabins and they're all great, but we have a favorite and I'm not telling which! I wish we could go more than once every couple of years (but there is a big world out there) and we're planning on sharing this year, or next, with husband's sister and nephew, who come from Perú. Mr. Lykins is courtesy personified, and forgiving of idiots on the water 😉. I'm hoping for a fresh batch of pillows next time we go, but I wouldn't change a thing! So many good memories, already...
My family stayed here for a week in August of last year and have recently booked another week for August of 2015. This is the perfect summer getaway if you want to relax, disconnect and enjoy the water and the summer. My family was a little older than the norm (youngest is 23) but we always make a point to take a week in the summer somewhere and this was perfect. We grilled, hung out on the beach, played in the water and read. Couldn't get any better!
I had never rented a cabin before so didn't really know what to expect - but this place is awesome! The cabins are clean and well-stocked with a full kitchen (including dishes/silverware/cookware) and a charcoal grill! Nice little beach, and fishing boat and pontoon boat available. Nisswa is a very short drive away for some rainy day coffee/shopping! The owner is very friendly and is always willing to help if you need anything (like an extra blanket or pillow). I hope to come back here for many years to come!
