Good Ol' Days Family Resort - Nisswa, MN: 1- or 2-Night Stay with Wilderness Resort Passes at Good Ol' Days Family Resort in Northern Minnesota

Family-Friendly Lodge Rooms and Cottages in Brainerd Lakes Area

Vacationing at the Gold Ol’ Days Family Resort is like taking a step back in time. Easy days at the waterfront property can be spent on a sandy beach abutting Lower Cullen Lake, fishing above sunken islands, or canoeing across the channel in search of wildlife. The manicured resort grounds are dotted with picnic tables, a playground, lawn swings, and a volleyball court. Each day starts off with a complimentary continental breakfast.

The property underwent a massive restoration in 2007, where all the original buildings were replaced with 10 brand-new cottages and an eight-room lodge. Cottages feature corner fireplaces, 42” plasma TVs, wood flooring, and vaulted ceilings. They also have full-sized kitchens, dining areas, and outdoor patios. Rooms in the lodge are individually decorated with memorabilia from previous owners. Each has a flat-screen TV, a kitchenette, and an outdoor patio or deck.

With the included Wilderness Resort passes, you can take advantage of the amenities at the nearby Wilderness Resort, where you’ll find a pool, hot tub, sauna, game room, and fitness room.

Nisswa, Minnesota: Old-Fashioned Fun and the Paul Bunyan Trail

Nisswa is a small town surrounded by dozens of lakes about two hours north of Minneapolis. Year-round visitors come to the area to enjoy the landscape and spend time walking and shopping in the quaint central square. Stop by StoneHouse Coffee for a cup of java roasted in-house or The Chocolate Ox for an ice cream cone.

Another popular attraction is the Paul Bunyan Trail accessible from the property — at 112 miles, the longest paved bike path in the state.
