Our family goes to Eagle's Nest every year. It's very low key - no tv, air conditioning or fancy bedding but you can't beat the experience. You could definitely go to a larger resort with a pool, arcade, restaurant, etc but it wouldn't be the same type of experience.
pros: great for kids, lots of space to run around, relaxing, on the Paul Bunyon Bike Trail, walk to Nisswa, clean, safe, quiet, friendly, one of the only family resorts like this left
cons: getting a little worn around the edges, a bit expensive for the amenities (land value has made these resorts disappear)
