Family Vacation Resorts

Plan an All Inclusive Resort Vacation

Family vacation resorts in Minnesota offer the amenities and family activities you expect of the best vacation resorts anywhere. 

Family Vacation Resorts

Family resorts...as with almost all resorts in Minnesota are located lakeside. With 10,000+ lakes in the state there is no reason to locate a resort other than near the water.

Evening bonfires, with S'Mores, star-gazing and, maybe, even a Northern Lights display will convince you that you've experienced one of the best family vacation resorts anywhere. 

Our clear lakes, sandy beaches, whispering pines, and warm starlit nights offer a setting for memorable family getaways in some of our best family vacation spots.

Minnesota Vacation Rentals: Your home away from home.

Some resorts offer all inclusive resort vacation packages; others will provide you with a boat, recreational equipment, group activities, and guided fishing excursions while encouraging you to stock your cabin with your own food and other needs.

Just a few of these wonderful family vacation resorts are listed on our Minnesota Resorts and Lodges page.

Larsmont Cottages is on the North Shore near Two Harbors.

This is one of our favorite family vacation resorts.

The large cottages can host us, our children and grandchildren all in one lovely spot.

We return as often as we can.

A Duluth resort we love is the Edgewater; it's right on the lake. Be sure to ask for a lakeside room.

Central Lakes Family Resorts

Some of our favorite Minnesota resorts are a bit less well-known. Many of these are those we think of fondly as "our place" at the lake. Some are the classic family run cabins and resorts that may not even advertise much. They know that the people who love them will return time after time. 

Fair Hills Resort is a large, family-friendly, resort located on beautiful Pelican Lake near Detroit Lakes. There is something for every family member to do in a safe, friendly environment. Play golf, play tennis, swim in the pool, take a dip in the lake, learn to water ski or just relax on the beach with a good book. You can choose a cabin with a kitchen and prepare your own meals, or you can choose to have your meals prepared and served in the Fair Hills resort dining room. More Detroit Lakes Resorts
