Pehrson Lodge Resort is like heaven on earth! It was a fantastic week-long adventure packed with swimming, boating, hiking, sleeping, awesome meals by the lake and some of the best hosts ever. Thanks to the amazing Hansen family!!! You guys are so awesome. Hoping to make this an awesome annual event!!

Room Tip: All the cabins are awesome!

A great family resort!. Nice beach with a slide for both the little kids and a large one for the teens. A large number of kayaks and water bikes - free for use. Also single-person sail boats (we did not use, but, the owner took their large sailboat out with their kids and some other teens, and even brought my younger daughter along!).

There is a large lodge game/reading room with LOTS of books, magazines, pin ball (bring your quarters, kids!), air hockey, pool table and ping pong. They even had some kids toys available to borrow such as scooters, basket balls, sidewalk chalk, frisbees - a nice touch. The kids camp (2 hrs/day) was really great, with the highlights being a pontoon ride and cookout.

I'm sure the resort was booked up given the week we were there, but it was always relaxing and quiet. We had the Breakers cabin, a small cozy cabin right on the edge of the water - it is very nice and would be great for a family with one or two children. Convenient to both the beach and the game room. Pehrson's is a great place, you can really tell it is a family-owned place - we've been to a very nice, mid-size corporate owned Brainderd area resort and it was nice, but, Pehrson's wins hands down - nicer beach, more beach toys/boats, kids program, much cuter cabins (and MUCH better beds too!).

Room Tip: Lakeside and beach cabins are very convenient to the beach and lodge, but still reasonably private...

This is the type of resort where families go back year after year. It was our second year and the kids can't wait until next year. The kids camp is well done. The cabins are very clean and well equipped. There is a lot to do from water sports to biking. We live in the lakes area of central Minnesota and love Lake Vermillion. It is a beautiful and quiet lake.

Very nice resort with lots to do. Everything you could need is right there. Not too loud either. Would return in a heartbeat. In fact, the only two complaints I have are small. The coke machine casts a harsh red glow to the grassy area near our cabin, detracting from the after sunset deck lounging. And the front desk seemed to be empty or busy often. Other than those, will be back next year.

Everything here is done right. Beautiful cabins, great service, cleaner than our own home.

Perfect place to fish in comfort. Great place for kids or couples.

Just finished our 9th year in a row at Pehrsons and we will be back next year.
