For many families, attending a resort becomes a seasonal tradition and for some, that tradition has continued on through generations. Helping carry on that tradition are area resorts who have been open for more than a century: Bonnie Beach Resort of Battle Lake and Ten Mile Lake of Dalton. The Minnesota Resort and Campground Association held their Fall Conference at Breezy Point Resort, Wednesday, Oct. 25, to recognize six of its newest members who enrolled as Minnesota Century Resorts.

Scenic Point Resort … “What Is It?” Of the 1,049 lakes in Otter Tail County, the very first settlers chose the shores of Clitherall Lake to call home. From that time on, Clitherall Lake has caught the joy and imagination of many outdoor enthusiasts. George Hammer wrote in 1884, “We sail along the eastern shore for a mile and a half arriving at “Cape Lundquist” (Scenic Point) whose hospitable villa is always open to tourists. We then round the “Point” of “Cape Lundquist” into the lovely and sheltered “Eureka Bay.” The lake is formed in the shape of the letter “T” and there is always a calm harbor in one of her bays.” Every year, guests return to Scenic Point to recount fond memories of good times and good fishing of years gone by. The Coltons first came to Clitherall Lake in 1959 as visitors from Iowa and in 1984 purchased Scenic Point. Since that time, there have been many improvements and additions, most notable being the 3 and 4 bedroom cabins, a 26 unit campground, a new store and lodge area. Scenic Point also sports a sand beach volleyball, canoes, kayaks and swimming raft. The cabins are all located […]

In the Land of 10,000 Lakes we appreciate a good canoe trip, water-ski outing, or dip in the local swimming hole! But what of our water play in the frozen winter months? The Cultural Center in New York Mills has the answer to your winter H2O-cravings: a water media class! Learn lots of creative and interesting ways to use water in your artistic endeavors. Class launches at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17, docking at 2:00 p.m. This gives participants plenty of time to dip their toes in before taking the plunge with water media. Says Center Education and Outreach Coordinator, Cheryl Bannes (also class instructor), “those in the heart of the lakes will find heart in this colorful use of water.” In the workshop, students use watercolor pencils, water-soluble oil pastels, watercolor crayons, and water-soluble graphite pencils and markers to draw and paint a simple landscape on watercolor paper. Focusing on media and technique, this lesson is for anyone interested in water media–not just landscape artists. This class is simple enough for beginners without watering-down the subject matter too much. Anyone above […]
