Great Vacation with family. Staff is very nice and have things available for kids and adults. Cabin we were in was huge with 4.5 bath and 8 bedrooms. Rooms were pretty clean and loved the huge kitchen and dining area. Bad thing was musty smell in kitchen and the floor was coming apart and bubbles in floor. Hopefully the floor gets replaced cause not safe. Other issue was back screened in patio...could have been nice with some good cleaning or power washing. With some good cleaning and updates with some fresh sand on volleyball court would definitely come back. Love and beach and able to use water boards, kayak, and open area. Great activitys for kids daily and pool was very nice. Love not a ton of guest there at a time with the small area. 5 familys made great memories in the cabin and hope to come back. This place will stay busy and booked with detailed cleaning and maintaining... as the owner said Working Progress and love seeing a family business.
This was the first time we stayed at the Spirit Of The North resort. We stayed in the Sportsman which had a great screened in porch that overlooked the lake. It had plenty of seating and was a nice hang out place. The cabin was clean and has tons of room for our 4 person family. The kids room had a full and 3 twins. Enough room for cousins to stay over as well. 2 baths and a nice kitchen. The other family with us stayed in the Timberwolf. 3 beds 2 baths. Very nice and clean again.
The grounds are clean with plenty to do. Swimming beach had tons of chairs to lay out in sun, as well as paddle boards and kayaks which our kids loved. No extra fees either. The beach and swim area also had a trampoline and swim pad- so fun!
Boats available to rent and piers to fish. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Not a bad word to say.
