We have vacationed up in the Nisswa/Brainerd area quite a few times over the years but this was out first stay at Lykins Pinehurst resort. We rented two cabins and both were nice and what would be expected. The beach and playgrounds were a lot of fun for the kids, and there were grassy areas where we could set up our lawn games. There were grills at each cabin which was where most of our dinners were made.
The Lykins themselves were so friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this place and I think we will be going back next year.
If you are looking for a luxiourious experience this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a typical northern Minnesota getaway this place is great!
