2023 Fall Resort Tour

The Fall Resort Tour on September 13 was an unforgettable experience that introduced us to the hidden gems of Northern Minnesota. Our adventure led us to four exceptional resorts, each offering a unique and enriching perspective on the world of hospitality.

At these resorts, we were greeted by some of the most incredible hosts, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to them for their warmth and generosity. Their dedication to making our stay memorable was evident in every detail, from the different kinds of accommodations (cabins, seasonal RV, daily RV, hotel, condo, winter ice houses) to delightful activities. But our appreciation doesn't stop there. We thank the 21 outstanding individuals from 14 resorts who joined us on this journey. Your company made the tour even more special.

What sets these resorts apart is their innovative approach to hospitality. Unlike traditional cabin-only resorts, they embrace seasonal RVs, providing a dynamic experience for their guests. From sunrise to sundown, there's a plethora of activities and events to keep everyone entertained, making each day an adventure. One of our stops even had an 18-hole mini golf course and a 9-hole golf course, adding an extra layer of enjoyment to our stay. These resorts face a unique set of daily and yearly challenges, and it was truly inspiring to hear about their creative solutions.

The Fall Resort Tour was an eye-opening experience that not only showcased the beauty of Minnesota in the autumn but also shed light on the remarkable efforts of these resorts to provide an unforgettable experience. We can't wait to share more adventures with you in the future!

Thank you to South Isle Family Campground, Fiddlestix RV & Golf Resort, Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort, and The Red Door Resort for hosting us.

Thank you to the following resorts that offered their outside facilities for these gatherings: Ten Mile Lake Resort in Dalton, Diamond Lake Resort in Atwater, Two Inlets Resort in Park Rapids and Cedar Point Resort in Marcell. We appreciate your efforts.

 Fall 2019: We toured in the Cass Lake/Blackduck Area.


Thank you to our host resorts Lost Acres Resort, Cass Lake Lodge and Joe's Lodge, and Sah Kah Tay Beach Resort.

Over 50 of your fellow resorters saw how these resorts operate and gathered new ideas, shared stories from the season and learned from other resorters.

It is always a great time to see old friends or make new friends and just spend a relaxing day away from your resort after a busy summer season
