What to look for when deciding on a place to stay in the Brainerd Minnesota Lakes Area

If you are reading this article we assume that you are going to visit the Brainerd Lakes Country for your vacation. If this is the case there are a few criteria to consider in the planning and selection of your resort. The first consideration always is what your family desires and what your expectations are. Make a list of the criteria that are important to you and then begin surveying the various resorts to ascertain which one best suits your needs. Following are some considerations which might prove useful in your planning process.

One of the first is the number of people in your party and your budget constraints. Most resorts and hotels/motels in the area have a variety of room, cabin or condo sizes and can accommodate your needs, so tailor your plans accordingly. Prices range greatly, so shop around on the internet. Also, there are a number of wonderful bed and breakfasts that should also be considered.

What activities you deem important also can be essential in your selection process and may influence your decision. Will you be fishing, biking or snowmobiling? If so it might be prudent to find a spot with a secure area for your boat, bikes or snowmobiles, so check out security in your resort search. If you won’t be bringing a boat, see which resorts can supply one to you as a part of your package.

Maybe you simply want to lounge around the lake and wind down with a bonfire, listening to the loon’s calls or star gaze under crystal clear skies that are free from city lights. Many of our family type resorts offer a peaceful and quiet setting that have very reasonable rates. If you are bringing the kids check to see what activities the various resorts offer. Also, several area hotels have pools and water slides for the kids. The entire area is loaded during the summer with special events and festivals as well.

Is this a golfing vacation? We have a number of resorts with their own wonderful courses where you can walk out your front door right to the first tee. Remember, though, that all of our area resorts are within a stone’s throw of some of Minnesota’s finest golfing opportunities.

Do you have special needs to be considered? If you need a resort with day care services for the kids you need to plan for that. Do you have pets that you will be bringing along? Some area resorts allow them and others do not. Do you need a resort that is handicap accessible? These are all items to be checked out prior to reserving your vacation lodging.

Are you planning on biking, in-line skating or snowmobiling? We have a number of resorts in the Brainerd Lakes area that are directly adjacent to the Paul Bunyan Trail for added convenience. Hop on your bike and be on your way along one of Minnesota’s premier trails.

Are you planning a company business trip and vacation combination? Many of our larger resorts and hotels offer great accommodations including meeting rooms, convention centers and family friendly meals. Brainerd Lakes Country is one of the state’s prime destinations for family reunions, group get-togethers and conventions.

If this is strictly a fishing excursion check out for all the scoop on our area lakes including lake surveys, water clarity data, fish types and populations and latest stocking information. Remember, we have well over 400 lakes in the immediate area just waiting for you to get your line wet. Also, some area resorts provide professional guide services as a part of your package.

If you are planning a winter vacation check to see which resorts can accommodate you. Some area resorts are strictly seasonal and close down in the late fall while others are open throughout the winter.

Timing can be critically important. Many resorts have a requirement for a minimum number of nights during the summer prime time, but have more flexibility and offer better deals during the off-season. The Brainerd Lakes area is gorgeous not only in the summer, but also in spring and fall so look in to these specials. Most importantly don’t wait until the last moment to book your reservations, as you might be looking for a place to stay in while others are enjoying this diverse area.

Before you book your vacation reservation do a search to find your area options and then do some comparison shopping. We have so many resorts, hotels and motels, campgrounds and bed and breakfasts - and no doubt more than one will be what you are looking for as your vacation getaway. And remember, no matter which one you select, you are within minutes of biking, fishing, horseback riding, shopping, great restaurants, snowmobiling, history and so much more. Come to Brainerd Lakes Country for awhile or for a lifetime. It’s all here for you.
