Top 10 Minnesota Cabin Getaways: Nelson's Resort
Straddling the Minnesota-Ontario border like our No. 1 Top 10 Minnesota Cabin Resorts choice, Nelson’s Resort sits on the edge of Crane Lake. But we promise, there won’t be a need to crane your neck for an unmatchable view of more than 40 miles of continuous waters, all waiting for you to explore!
Not that the other resorts on our list aren’t in abundantly beautiful and adventure-filled locations, we just got really excited when we saw where Nelson’s Resort has been hunkered down for more than 75 superb years. Not only does this historic haven feature things you wouldn’t expect to find at a classic lake resort, much less at a five-star city hotel, its proximity to some of Minnesota’s grandest natural elements makes it a must-stay for anyone searching out a Northwood’s destination.
Here, Nelson Resort will accommodate you any way you deem fit for an up North escapade. If that means all you need is a boat, a fishing pole and a roof over your head at night, it’s done. And if it means a nightly organic-style meal picked fresh from a blooming garden and a bottomless glass of aged port after a day lazing on a luxe cruise boat, you can have that, too!
Things to Know
Nelson’s Resort’s onsite Millie’s Garden grows leafy delicacies like curly ornamental kale, savoy cabbage, butterhead lettuce, asparagus and parsley.
