So Much to Do... So Little Time...

Manhattan Beach Lodge is the perfect destination anytime of the year.  In Summer waking to the call of loons and the warm feel of sun at lunch on the lake side patio will become permanent memories of a vacation at Manhattan Beach lodge. The pristine area combined with northern Minnesota's forests provide a world class array of recreational activities.  The peaceful setting of a Minnesota north woods winter may be the best time to plan a snowy getaway at Manhattan Beach Lodge. Outside the woods and frozen water beckon to the adventurous with many recreational activities.
