Popular Leech Lake Resort leaves you feeling secluded this Fall

Popular Leech Lake Resort leaves you feeling secluded this Fall

When booking your fall vacation, ice fishing weekend, or summer getaway it is always important to check off the necessities and must need amenities, is it not? That is essentially why rentals vs. hotels consistently come out with rentals on top. If you’re unsure why, think about it this way…

  • Your booking is more personal than a mega hotel chain.
  • Parking is not only closer but much more private and usually has space for your boats, etc.
  • Pet Friendly. Your pet is part of the family too, don’t kennel them.
  • They often provide fully stocked kitchen appliances and grills so you save loads of money on restaurant bills and can even cook in your pajamas.
  • Most are lakefront or with a forest setting, can’t get that at a hotel chain on Main Street.
  • Decks are much larger with furniture and fire pits for evening entertainment
  • No shared hallways makes your evening bed time a lot more peaceful.

The list goes on and on….

This Minnesota does have a lakeside fire pit for late night social hour or for an authentic, rustic dinner over the fire.


The nice thing we enjoy about vacation rentals is often there is an ability to wash your clothes and less packing when things are stocked such as linens and a stocked kitchen and this cabin does just that! It also has a charcoal grill, and a canoe to use! No need to bring beach chairs or towels, the cabin stocks them so you can have more room in the car for what you really need to bring….the kids and dog of course! Speaking of which, get the kids excited and a peaceful house to yourself-take them to the bunkhouse to sleep! It holds 4.

We have made it easier for you to explore fishing some the best places in New York on our new fishing page. Choose a charter boat or vacation rental that fits your needs too for the best fishing expedition you will have.

It’s time to book your family friendly fishing resort in central #Minnesota

It’s time to book your family friendly fishing resort in central #Minnesota

Summer resorts in Minnesota often book up fast. As a listing website, we get all kinds of emails asking us to help people find last minute availability. We try our hardest but most people, once going to a resort, book for the following year and start thinking about their vacation six months to nine months before. We always suggest booking ahead and booking directly for the best availability, dates, and rates.


If your family is looking for a resort that keeps the kids busy and happy and parents relaxed and comfortable, then Dickerson’s Lodge is where it’s at. This centrally located resort is in Spicer, MN. The Dickerson’s sure go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and even greet you with a warm plate of chocolate chip cookies. They have cabins for every family size and dynamic.

Kids love the jungle gym but the real stars around here are all the water toys such as the floating dock, paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, slide, sand box, tubes, sail boat and more. The level beach is perfect for those a little wobbly on their toes and parents can oversee the action in a chaise lounge chair right on the beach or get in on the action themselves. Kids often fish right off the dock where they can catch plenty of sunnies or crappies. This lodge also has plenty of boat rentals if you want to cruise around the lake or fish for muskies. There is a fish cleaning house located right on the resort!


Bob and Connie are always doing something! Sunday mornings, wake up and smell the coffee, literally. Freshly brewed coffee and fresh homemade donuts and juice are available! Also enjoy Pizza delight on Mondays night and Thursdays, Bob drives the hayride all around the resort for the kiddos.

The Spicer area is a wonderful area and is part of the Willmar Lakes area. There are so many lakes to choose from. We may be biased a little but the clean and beautiful Lake Florida is our favorite. Among other lakes are Green Lake, Nest, Norway and Long Lake. It’s just about the shimmering waters though, this area also hosts lots of events, cruises, and shows along with lots of restaurants and shopping. Enjoy a murder mystery dinner, a house boat cruise, a dinner cruise, race around the track at big Kahuna Park, or catch a show from the Little Crow Ski team or watch a flick at the Spicer Cinema.

Don’t wait, view the resort and cabins here on our website. You can view photos, videos and rates here and BOOK DIRECTLY with Bob and Connie. Relax, you’re on cabin time now.

Walker, Minnesota is known for its many events and festivals with great shopping and dining as well. This strong community embraces those looking to explore the Leech Lake area with their friends and loved ones. Events such as Eelpout Festival in February and the Moondance Jam in July are prime reasons why there is something for everyone, anytime of the year. Here are reasons why you should definitely pack a bag and head out in the next few weeks though:

  1. Shores of Leech Lake is a great 3 bedroom vacation rental in the Leech Lake area with over 1,000 square feet. The best part? It’s pet friendly!               leech

A no fail trip to the #Catskills is more than just possible

Sullivan County is not just any ordinary county in New York. It is a diverse landscape with loads of activities for the family. This is a great destination for a vacation for those that want to reconnect with nature. Sullivan county is 75 miles away from New York City. Perfect for people that just need a quick getaway to the famous Catskill Mountains to renew the spirit or refresh the mind.


Sullivan County has been a popular spot for a wide variety of recreational opportunities and home to the famous Woodstock festival.  Boating and Mountain climbing are very popular in this region. Callicoon Center is considered the Trout Capital of the World by Field and Stream magazine.  Wet your line for great Rainbow and Brown Trout in the Delaware River.

Not into fishing? Take a ride down the Delaware River in a canoe, tube, kayak and even zipline! Enjoy multiple bodies of water for great fishing and swimming. A great family vacation off the Delaware river can be had at this vacation rental: Country Barn House 


Between the fantastic mountain vistas, sparkling water, diverse culture and rugged trails, there is plenty to explore without ever being bored in the Catskills. Jump on the trails for mountain biking, hiking, or horseback riding.

Attractions are plentiful in this particular county. The original home of the Woodstock concert is the Bethel Woods Center of the Arts. Nowadays, it is home to huge name concerts, theater productions, and family fun with a museum shrine of the sixties. Who doesn’t love the 60s? Bethel Woods provides entertainment to all walks of life and different cultures. This is a must see in Sullivan County and is even worth the drive for a quick weekend away from the city.


The Monticello Raceway is another great place for adult fun at the track. Watch the horses compete around the track or play a hand of blackjack at the casino.

Golfing in the Catskills is some of the finest and you have a large selection of courses to choose from. The scenery cannot be unmatched. We suggest the Lochmore for the experienced golfer or the Villa Roma Country club for great views with a course in always fantastic condition.
