MN Vacations start with finding the perfect Family Resort, Hotel, or Cabin in Brainerd.

Many of the area lodging options are even pet-friendly, so you don’t have to leave anyone behind on your next family vacation!

For the traveling family, or large group, many of the Brainerd MN resorts offer unique Reunions Homes and group activities. Corporate Groups and Retreat are also welcomed and encouraged at Resorts and Hotels in the Brainerd Lakes Area that feature spacious conference and meeting rooms, and reception areas. Need to host a kid’s birthday party? Try a local Hotel Waterpark for an exciting activity and party space in one!

Surrounded by woods and lakes, Brainerd is also known for its beautiful RV Parks and Campgrounds. From primitive tent camping sites in the woods, to RV Resorts that offer hookups and amenities, the options are endless for a summer camping vacation in Minnesota. The fun doesn’t end in the summer either! Try a Four Season Winter Resort for a holiday or snowmobiling vacation.

A visit is nice, but stay for a bit with a Brainerd Lakes Rental Home or Extended Stay Lodging option.
