Friendly, cozy cabin, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was an adorable, cozy, clean, and very well maintained cabin! Everyone was so friendly! They lent us a fishing pole for my son to try fishing and were so accommodating overall, including a slightly later check in which is very helpful when traveling with kids.

We stayed in a cabin in front of the main swimming area, but since the water level was high there wasn’t a beach so we walked down to the other beach. With little kids in tow (1 and 4 year old), I might recommend one of those cabins (1-3?) as they were closer to that beach and farther back from water. Although I will say our cabin had an incredible sunset view!

A downfall for us was that there was no bonfire pit in front of your cabin. They do have one farther away by the other beach, but with little kids, a bonfire is more of a night time adult activity, and it wasn’t an option for us to go away from the cabin while they were sleeping. Also, we are admittedly huge babies when it comes to this - but would have liked for the beach/swim area to be more raked.

The shower was small - hard to shower with the one year old, but not impossible! But otherwise cabin and screened in porch were great for family time. A pack and play did fit in one of the rooms in case anyone is wondering. And the ac coupled with big fans definitely kept the cabin nice and cool!

They had a lot of cute games and things to Pass the time like a star finder, conversation starters, etc. Lots of nice touches in the cabin. And Nisswa is an adorable town with great shopping, restaurants, a fun old fashioned historical town, and an amazing playground for the kids. When kids get older we would love to take advantage of the bike rentals and trails.

Overall, we had a great experience! Thank you!

Another Great Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Samara Point 3 or 4 times over the course of 25 years. The last 2 times have been in the channel house. I can't say enough great things about the resort and the family that runs it. It is always welcoming and quiet. They are out every day ending to the property and making sure we had everything we need. If you are looking for a great place to spend a week up north this is it!

Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The cabin was nice and clean. We loved the screened in porch, but not the small shower. Our stay was very enjoyable.
