Our family has been visiting this resort almost every summer since 1970 and each visit ends with us planning the next trip. Brad and Amy have done a great job carrying on the tradition that the Fease family started. This resort is exactly what you would hope for when visiting the north woods. The cabins are cozy, rustic, and each... More

This was our tenth year at Shady Rest! Our extended family of grandparents, parents and grandchildren (30 of us in total this year) meet every year for a week in July. Over the years we have gotten to know Brad and Amy and watch their kids grow up. They are a wonderful family and they attract a wonderful staff. Shady... More

Have brought our extended family here for 3 years, and find this the best way to reconnect and have a fun time!! So many activities for toddlers through teens! Kids can learn to waterski & even our adults love tubing behind the speed boat! The ladies love the pampering of meals served in the lodge, and everyone loved the delicious... More

We've visited this lodge two times in the past few years in summer. It's a great place if you've little kids and don't want to drive around for any activities. Cabins are very basic but since they are all so close to the water and beach, you'll be spending most of the time outdoors with the scenic lake and trees... More

We went to Shady Rest for a weekend. We have done many weekends in different locations and for the price of this one the lodging conditions were not the value we have found elsewhere. The lake is very pretty and we enjoyed the sunsets. There are kayaks which we enjoyed to tour around the lake, two paddle boats, one of... More

In addition to having family living on Lake Manson, we decided to rent a cottage from Shady Resort to have extra space across the lake. By doing that, we were able to pontoon and kayak back and forth as weather allowed. We were fortunate to have a beautiful Labor Day weekend, high seventies, summer warmed lake water, and lots to...

This was our 6th year at Shady Rest. The week is family orientated with activities in the morning ranging from soft ball to go-carting. The afternoons are filled with water skiing, wake boarding, wake surfing and tubing. We're not a big fishing family but others have had good luck catching everything from pan fish to Muskies. If the weather turns... More

We have been bringing our family to Shady Rest Lodge for 15 years. It is the best vacation we have all year. In fact, one year we took our children to Disney for Spring Break and Shady Rest in the summer and asked them what they liked best. Without hesitation they said, "Shady Rest!!" There are very few resorts in... More

Our family has vacationed at Shady Rest for 20 years now. We began going when our oldest son was 1-year-old. Over the years, as all three of our children have grown, there has been lots of fun to entertain all ages: daily activities guided by the staff, kayaking, fishing, skiing, tubing, and all kinds of beach play. We've developed close... More

Shady Rest is located on Manson Lake and it's quite pretty. The little beach is great for small kids, sandy and the water doesn't get deep too soon. Unfortunately, if you actually like to swim in the lake and you're older than 8 years, it's rather limiting. The lake is extremely weedy after 3' depth. I do like lake swimming,... More
