The Red Door Resort is a fantastic lake get-a-way! Our husband's have been visiting the Red Door for years with the guys - summer fishing and ice fishing - they love it!! Well the girls were finally invited, and I can't say enough good things about it! The cabins are decorated with an up-north atmosphere - they are roomy, comfortable and incredibly clean!! The cabins have a wonderful view of the lake, and each has its own fire pit. We rented the pontoon while we were up there, and had almost the entire family out fishing and relaxing together! The owners are very nice, and always accomodating! Sorry guys, I think the girls will be coming with you from now on!!! Can't wait for our next visit!!!!

We did a guys getaway here and everyone loved it. Great accommodations and amenities including a protected harbor for the boat slips, nice restaurant, fire pit, swimming area, and docks to fish from. We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful place to spend quality family time. We stayed in newly remodeled stone house which is beautiful. Over 100 years old it has charm and 100% upgrades to modern standards. We rented a pontoon and with 2 grandchildren it was great. We toured the lake and fished at the same time. We found fish but couldn't catch them.
The playground was good for the kids and the swimming was good with the exception there was no beach area. The is a giant trampoline about 100 yards off shore that was really fun once you got there. The lake is shallow enough that you can walk most of the way.
This was the best place we have ever stayed at in terms of cabins. The people were friendly and took care of whatever we wanted.
We have already made a reservation for next year.

Great resort for fishing, hunting, snowmobiling or getting away with the family. Have friends who nice fish out of the Red Door Resort who state that the service on the lake is excellent. We highly recommend the Red Door Resort.

The Red Door Resort and Motel is absolutely the best family resort on Mille Lacs. Excellent amenities for fishing all-seasons including a motel and amazing lake front cabins. Wonderful playground for the kids, shallow sandy waters for the kids to swim, pontoon rentals, and a fish-house park where you can park your fish-house year round. Clean showers and great restaurant make the resort experience complete on the greatest lake in Minnesota.

Room Tip: The cabins have great ambiance and are exceptionally priced.
