Celebrating the Holidays

Winter is a different experience in Minnesota than it is for most others. Whether you love the snow and are an avid ice fisherman or snowmobiler, or if you prefer to tuck away with a comfy hoodie and a wood burning fire we can all appreciate the Holidays, especially at the lake. Many of our lodging partners offer special deals to help celebrate the holiday and ring in the new year lakeside. The area has several open houses and celebrations to check out as well as the abundance of Christmas lights and celebrations throughout the town.
