Join an Up North Tradition at Eagles Nest Resort
Discover small-town charm and old-world woods from Eagles Nest Resort. Hang in a hammock lakeside as the children swim off the dock, make sandcastles in the soft white sand beach, and play King of the Castle in the 2-acre playground palace. Tannin-dark waters cloak Sunfish and Northern Pike under the mirrored surface of Lower Cullen Lake. Pine forest and River Birch thread the shoreline, a fitting crown of foliage to the dark crystal of Lower Cullen Lake in the picturesque northwoods of Nisswa.
Eagles Nest Resort offers you a delightful lake setting to enjoy with family, friends, or that special someone! Perfectly planned beachfront provides your family with a wide open view of one of Minnesota’s idyllic lakes: Lower Cullen Lake. Clear, shallow water is perfect for a pleasant swim and soft sand provides soft footing as you walk in the warm summer water.
Children enjoy the two-acre playground, outdoor chess, games and jungle gym right on the resort property framed by fragrant pine and fir forests. Take a fishing rod and fish right from the dock and go on a bike tour of Paul Bunyan Trail. Or head out to town and do a little shopping in quaint but beautiful Nisswa, Minnesota.
Fifteen resort cabins were built ready for your happy family to reunite under the canopy of green leaves and Summer sun in beautifully secluded Eagles Nest Resort. Swap childhood stories at a family bonfire, point out the constellations stargazing with the kids, or start moving with a bike trip down the Paul Bunyan Trail with the help of local bike rentals from Martins Sports Shop or Trailblazer Bikes.
Dip your line right off the edge of the dock and catch some Sunnies or Panfish for dinner! Or take the opportunity to teach some boating safety and try your luck out on the lake. A basket full of fish is sure to put a smile on your young angler’s face.
Experience the best of the north woods from rolling woodland golf courses right in Eagles Nest Resort's backyard! Let the resort schedule your tee-times at one of many area golf resorts. But before you go, warm up that swing at the "Hopeful Eagle Range" right at the resort. Then, tee-off at Madden's on Gull Lake, Cragun's Legacy, Whitefish Golf Club, and the Pines at Grand View Lodge, just to name a few!
Get in the holiday spirit and slow down the pace with a trip through the woods in Eagles Nest Resort cabins. Relax lakeside and sleep away the stress in a hammock by the lake as the family fishes for your dinner from Lower Cullen Lake. Then join and enjoy the holiday festivities in busy Nisswa.
Experience the luxury of lakeside living and treasure nature's gifts of peace and relaxation from the sandy beach of Eagles Nest Resort on Lower Cullen Lake. Still waters and settle sediment make for soft sand bottoms and clear blue waters that are as dark and beautiful as the shaded north woods that surround the lake. Fish from the shore, dock, or boat-side, brave the lake by waterskis, or just take a refreshing swim in the sun-warmed waters.
Forests full of wildflowers and wildlife make a nighttime symphony of sounds as you listen from your cabin window or log-cut seat at the campfire. Soak in the peace and quiet of true night skies darkened by summer storms or bright with the northern stars, the Aurora Borealis, or the moonshine.
