North Central Minnesota's family vacation, biking and fishing resort
in the heart of Lake Country

We set out to make BaySide a special place in the sun for you. A retreat based upon the slower-paced activities and leisurely days that you knew in your childhood. A place where you can get back in touch with yourself, your family and your friends. A place and a time you'll remember and want to come back to again and again. Your place in the quiet of the Minnesota northwoods.


Our cabins have a knotty pine interior, modern bathroom, roomy shower with plenty of hot water, comfy beds, and kitchen that includes fridge, gas range, toaster, coffee maker, microwave oven, and all the pots, pans, utinsels and dishware you need to feed a hungry crew. Special Amenities include:
  • Cable TV in all cabins 
  • Laundry 
  • Screened Porches 
  • Ceiling fans 
  • Fireplaces

Pine Mountain Lake is one of Minnesota's hidden treasures. The 1500 acre lake offers some of the best walleye fishing south of the Canadian border...and don't you dare tell a soul. There are also plenty of long-stemmed reed beds if you'd like to chase Northern Pike or Largemouth Bass.

Summer in the northwoods of Minnesota holds the promise of warm sunny days to play in the lake, get a good tan, hit the bike trail, or just sit around under a tree and read a book. Cool clear nights bring out more stars than you ever thought possible. 

There are plenty of summer activities at BaySide including volleyball, horseshoes, children's playground and beach plus picnic tables, lawn chairs, firerings and Weber grills at each cabin.

The Paul Bunyan Trail runs within 50 yards of BaySide. It is the premier biking trail in the state going from Brainerd to Hackensack, so bring your bike.

BaySide is OPEN YEAR ROUND with heated, insulated cabins and Winter Activities to keep you warm.

Winter holds its special treats for those who come north. The Paul Bunyan Trail is groomed for snowmobiles, as are hundreds of miles of other interconnected trails that wind through the woods and across the lakes, with plenty of available stops along the way.

If you are into cross-country ski adventures you couldn't find a better place. Six ski trails are within an 18 mile radius. BaySide Cabins are well insulated and heated. Most comfortable for a winter's visit to the north woods of Minnesota.
