Nelson’s Resort

Nelson’s Resort has a 89 year history of making memories. As one of the north woods most premier resorts you’ll feel more like a guest than visitor. Our unique resort offers a once in a lifetime experience of tranquility, fun, and luxury.

Nelson’s resort offers 27 individual pine log and paneled cabins, each as beautiful as their surroundings. After a successful day of fishing, swim on the beach, take a nice hot shower in your own cabin, and walk down to the lodge for a fantastic dinner prepared by our chef. After dinner? Maybe a night cap in our bar, a bonfire on the beach, a moment in the sauna, or watch the northern lights from your dock. Our facilities also include a playground, hiking trail, game room, canoes, volleyball, laundromat, fish wrapping and freezing service, boat launch; golf course within 10 miles.
