Fall is the perfect season for hiking and biking in Northern Minnesota

Things tend to slow down a bit on the resort after Labor Day.  The kids are back in school.  The resort is a bit quieter.  The pace is even more relaxed.  For folks who enjoy nature and the outdoors, it’s the perfect season to get out into the woods to do some hiking or on […]

Labor Day: End of Summer or Beginning of Fall

I love summer.  I love the warmth.  I enjoy watching the kids play in the water and jump on the water trampoline.  The families and friends gather around the campfire while roasting marshmallows.  The fish house is full of the fishermen telling their stories and exaggerating the size of the fish that got away.  This […]

Experience a Classic Northern Minnesota Cabin

Many of the northern Minnesota resorts were originally built from the 1920’s through the 1950’s.  While some of these older cabins have been replaced, many have been maintained, upgraded, remodeled and renovated.  We have 5 of these older cabins here at Loon Point Resort.

 

Built in the 1950’s, and added on to in the 1960’s, they […]

Family Reunions at Loon Point Resort

With 18 years of resorting under our belts, going on our 19th season, we’ve had the pleasure of having quite a few family gatherings and reunions here at Loon Point Resort.  Some are just a one-time event.  Coming one year here . . . and then the family may go to another part of the […]

Dreaming of warm summer days

March is one of those months in northern Minnesota  when the snows keep on coming and we get really tired of winter in general and shoveling/snow blowing in particular!   It helps to try to visualize the warmer days of spring and summer.  This is often when we start getting more emails and phone calls about […]

Northern Minnesota Snowmobiling

Itasca County boasts over 900 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, and Loon Point Resort, a premier MN resort is perfectly located for you to access those trails.  Our Minnesota cabin rentals allow you to easily hop on your sled from the cabin and start riding the scenic MN snowmobile trails!  There’s a short “ungroomed” logging […]

Minnesota Cabin Rental

Our 1800 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath lakehome – White Pine – is getting a facelift this spring!  The home was built in the later 1970’s and the kitchen has sported a dazzling orange countertop along with orange hues in the flooring and wallpaper.  We’ve decided it’s definitely time to update!  Watch for new […]

Minnesota Winter Getaway

There’s nothing like a relaxing winter weekend in a Northern Minnesota cabin.  Recently, we’ve had a number of guests whose primary reason for coming was to RELAX!  Secondarily – some went ice fishing, another attended a biatholon at nearby Mount Itasca, and another group came for some cross-country skiing.  Soon, the snowmobilers will be arriving!  […]

Birdwatching at Loon Point Resort

One of our favorite things to do in the summer at our Minnesota family resort is to sit on our porch and watch the hummingbirds.  We have three feeders just off the porch and for reasons we don’t understand, we have more hummingbirds than any of the cabins on the resort.  And July and August seem to be […]

Summer Specials

The vacation  trends have definitely changed over the past 19 years we have owned Loon  Point Resort.  Vacationing at a northern Minnesota family resort used to mean planning ahead – oftentimes a full year ahead.  While we still have plenty of guests at our MN family resort who still do that, we are finding (as […]
