Be Our Guest,

We invite you to experience the beauty of Northwoods Minnesota. Sunsets, starry skies, and the songs of the loon are par for the course. Let us take your experience to another level!  Our family resort is Nestled in the Pines and Birch of the Buena Vista State Forest on the eastern shore of Big Turtle Lake.  We are just 12 miles north of Bemidji, voted best Minnesota town, 2017, home to Paul and Babe.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you and your family as our guests – any season of the year.
Your Hosts,
Jim, Debbie, Aaron & Ana
