“A great place!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Stayed second week in July 2013. Wonderful property with lots of things for families to do. Rented one of Trappers Town house condos it was lovely! Nicely decorated and the steam shower was great. Awesome view of the lake and great fire pits for guests to use. They have complementary
Water skiing and tubing during the day that my teens enjoyed. We are planning on coming back next summer.

Perfect for 4 adults and 7 kids. Staff is lovely. They were always so kind and helpful. Only thing missing was no hot tub outside. Kids liked the bikes and kayaks. Fishing boat rental was really convenient.

This was a nice getaway by myself. Very good accomodations; my only disappointment was the Beachside Bar and Grille. There was only pizza at this time of the year and it wasn't good. The townhome was very nice, clean and Chrissy was most kind. I would return.

A four day weekend in mid-October. The weather was awesome and the lake was cooperative too. Some wind the first afternoon but the waves were moderate.
Within a mile or so of the resort is some of the best Muskie fishing on the lake. I caught a very fat 34" female and saw a 50"er that just wasn't interested. She was the fish of a lifetime but just drifted away and wouldn't hit any other lures.
Our condo was clean, quiet and very roomy. Satellite TV but we missed the Northern Lights earlier in the night. The restaurant was closed for the season.
We will be back.

For families with the money to spend, this must be the perfect vacation spot - beautiful property with lots of activities. But couples looking for a romantic getaway should brace themselves for all the children running and screaming past their windows during the summer season.

Besides the noise and lack of privacy, though, we thought our lakeside lodge was great. We had nice views of Leech Lake and all the supplies we could want in our kitchen.

My daughter and son-in-law were going for a weekend stay at Trappers Landing. We wanted to join them and checked the website for pricing. Range printed $185-$290. Instructions say call for accurate pricing (a ploy to verbally quote lower and charge significantly higher). I spoke with general manager Shelly Jones. She said spring rate (before Memorial Day) is $185 night for 1 bedroom townhome.

Upon returning home, the charge was over $600. I contacted Shelly. Her reply, $185 is weekday rates and we charged you weekend rates. I booked directly with Shelly; she knew the stay was Friday-Sunday. The spring rate she told me was $185, pre-memorial day rate due to amenities not available. The restaurant and pool closed.

There is an 8% service fee in addition to room rate for firewood, free smores, sauna, movies, bikes, lawn games, canoes, kayaks, paddle boat, kids camp, pool, waterskiing and tubing, volleyball court, playground, horseshoes) NONE available.

The office closed between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. Guest unable to check out dvds, games, sauna key, store located inside. No employees around to give information on area parks, restaurant, stores. When asking at check-in, clueless. No maps provided. Their response was you can check in Walker 12 miles away.

During our stay other guests provided more information than employees. There is a neighbor resort restaurant, Huddles Resort, open to the public, a 2 minute walk. Store is 15 minutes away in the town of Hackensack. Look for Mike's Meat Market, carries groceries too.

Our advice, get the price in writing, print and present upon check-in. The verbal rate provided by Shelly Long will not be honored and you will be charged a significantly higher rate. $185 promised, $255 charged.

Note the additional fees total 17.875%. 8% service fee, 3% local tax, 6.875% MN tax.

The unit itself was clean, grounds were not well-groomed (grass not cut), and absolutely no service. One employee renting boats early in the day and that was it. Be aware of small pillars in the boat landing parking lot. They have been cut down, but not removed and are not real visible but can damage a tire or car.

Shelly Long offered a $25 certificate to use in their restaurant. No apology and no credit back honoring her price of $185. Horrible customer service, lied to and no attempt to fairly correct.

I did read other reviews and agree if you are only looking for a clean unit to hibernate with no services, this may be the place for you. The units are equipped for self-service. Just be sure you get the price in writing before you book or you will endure the burden.

I now must complete a dispute form and submit to my credit card company, and further submit a report to the BBB. Writing this lengthy review is to alert others interested in this resort. What to expect in regard to charges, lack of customer service, amenities and service fees charged.
