Kitchens: Each cabin contains a kitchen/dining room with built-in cabinets, refrigerator, electric cooking stove, microwave, several small appliances, pots, pans, and dishes. Each cabin also comes with an outdoor gas grill and a charcoal grill to compliment your cooking needs.

Our resort is made up of four theme-based cabins: Bear’s Den, Moose Lodge, Loon’s Nest, and Deer Haven. Each lake-facing, two-bedroom cabin sleeps up to four. Our size makes us the perfect Minnesota resort lodging for family reunions, retreats, and book club and other club/group getaways. 

Our size also ensures that even the smallest of details won’t go unnoticed. Each of our cabins is meticulously maintained, and the grounds that surround our cabins are lovingly cared for. Our guests enjoy our abundant flower gardens in summer and appreciate our cleared paths and walkways in winter.

Repeatedly, our guests comment that our cabins are clean, quiet, and comfortable. Our year-round, full housekeeping cabins combine the charm of days gone by with the conveniences of today—including modern, energy-efficient appliances, microwaves, Wi-Fi, TV/DVD players, iPod-compatible stereo systems, fireplaces, and more.

We care about the health our environment and the health of our guests. All of our cabins are non-smoking units, and we use only all-natural, environment-friendly cleaning products. In addition, we provide recycling bins in and around the cabins for your convenience.

At Garden Lake Resort, we care about the health of our environment and the health of our guests. Sorry!, No Pets!

Garden Lake Resort now uses Green Cleaning Proudcts!

After much research, we use carefully chosen all-natural, environment-friendly cleaning products and methods that keep our cabins clean and fresh, without the potential toxic side-effects of conventional cleaning products. We launder our sheets using eco-friendly detergent and keep our cabin windows open as long as possible to allow in our fresh north woods air. So take a deep breath—inside or outside your cabin—and experience the “green” difference at Garden Lake Resort.
