A Minnesota Family Vacation Destination- Pehrson Resort & Lodge


2013-06-03 21.28.52

My family recently went on a little mini vacation to celebrate the end of school. The endless rat race of the school year can be exhausting. There is nothing better than to take a little relaxing break to official start summer. Living in Minnesota there are an abundance of lakes and recreational opportunities- we are the Land of 10,000 Lakes! But my family chose to visit Pehrson Resort & Lodge on Lake Vermilion.

This family-owned and operated resort provides a perfect setting to experience the wonder of Lake Vermilion.

Our visit lasted exactly three nights and each night there appeared a spectacular painting in the sky at sunset.

And last, but not least…

Our cabin (named Aurora) has a true rustic cabin feeling, with all the modern conveniences of course!:) Check out the full selection of cabins available.

Our cabin had a complete kitchen so we could prepare our own meals.
