We loved our stay at this resort! Quiet & out of the way nestled in the forest & beautiful scenery all around. Offers many amenities including private dock with boat included! Wildlife everywhere... Several bald eagles, loons, chipmunks, deer not to mention the great fishing! Hospitality from owners Al & Marg surpassed our expectations in every way. So glad we...

Choose this "resort" last minute as owner promised off season rate on Cabin 1, 2 bedroom, & it looked charming online. Mouse droppings greeted us in the porch on arrival, bathroon faucet & toilet had not been cleaned and there is something growing between the logs in the bedrooms. The setting near the lake is lovely but the weeds along...

We always have a great time here! The cabins are clean and have everything we need. The lake is clean and beautiful and there are lots of fish in it. The owners are friendly and accommodating. What more could we ask for? Love it!

Very beautiful setting right on the lake! The hospitality is awesome! The cabins are picture perfect on the lake! Relaxing fishing! Caught a nice northern off the dock. I would highly recommend it. Nice place for families. It's definitely a hidden gem off highway 34.

This is a perfect location if you want to be able to go to the larger communities, Itasca State Park, and Tamarrac Wildlife Refuge. It is a resort that brings back childhood memories and the fishing is great! We wouldn't miss our summer week.

While we knew the cabin was rustic we did not expect everything to fall off the shelves and into the toilet every time we closed the door. The grass was not mowed or the garbage collected for the first week we were there which invited tons of mosquitos & biting flies. the private dock was chocked with weeds and a...

I also don't agree with the poor review by DustBunny. The Hideaway is not a modern resort. At all. They never say that they are. The ammenities are clean and in good repair. Myself and my family stayed at cabin #6 which is by far, the most...we'll call it,"rustic" of all of the cabins. It was absolutely NOT fancy. But,...

I was rather put out by the above comment from dust bunny. Sadly this person over looked one of the most important experiences of a lake vaca and that is famIly! The Hideaway is a great place to get away. While rustic, the cabins are as clean as one would expect for a fishing cabin and if an issue needs...

We made the mistake of choosing this resort for our fall getaway and ended up in Cabin #1. It was a far cry from "completely modern" as it was described in their website. I would give it a zero rating if it were possible. We felt grubby the whole time we stayed there, and my alergies were in full swing....
