Where Beauty & Nature Intersect

Now is the time to plan your vacation in the Heartland Lakes.

Nothing fake. Nothing fresher. Only memories.

Looking outside at the snow loaded pines, it’s hard to believe that in a few months spring will arrive and then summer all this wind chill will be a distant memory (at least until next winter hits and we do it all again).

Before you know it, school will be out and family reunions and summer vacations will be in full force.  There will be a festival every weekend and more food on a stick than you can shake a stick at.

That’s about the time the Chamber of Commerce is flooded with phone calls from people looking for somewhere to stay.  We do our best to help by keeping a vacancy list and using social media intel but the best way to ensure you’ll have a hassle-free vacation is by making your reservations now.

One of the wonderful things about this area is that there are so many options.  Looking for a rustic campsite near peaceful hiking trails?  A traditional resort perfect for families?  Maybe you want to rent a home modeled after a Frank Lloyd Wright house.  A hotel that welcomes pets close to downtown?  Perhaps you’re looking for a quiet resort perfect for fishing what has boat rentals.  Even if you’re looking for a bed and breakfast perfect for snowmobilers, there’s a place for you here in the Heartland Lakes.

Here are 5 easy ways to figure out where you want to stay and start planning your getaway.  Pick whichever one works for you and get rolling. 

1.  Request an area guide of your own.

2.  Check out the lodging Hot Deals

3.  Use Advanced Search on any of the lodging pages.
