“We have just come home from a second year at Pine Terrace which we found on the internet and took a chance.   WOW – we caught 30+ pan fish, swam, hiked, and just spent quality time with our whole family  It’s the best place for kids and specially because there is no tv, no planned activities — just good family time.  Check it out – you won’t be disappointed.  We’ll definitely be back again !!!”

“Thanks again for a fabulous stay at Pine Terrace Resort. As you know, I have been visiting the resort for about 40 years! I started going as a toddler, then with my husband, and now we have several years with our kids. It’s a magical place and we wouldn’t change a single thing, but I must say, having you and your family (including Charlie) at the helm makes it so much more special for all of us. You are the perfect hosts. The grounds and cabins have never looked better. Your hard work and integrity to the roots of this resort are awesome! Thanks again.
Your friends and grateful visitors,”

“2010 marks our 15th year at Pine Terrace and we could not be happier with the beautiful setting, sparkling clean cabin, friendly and accommodating hosts and quiet privacy we look forward to each year.  Cabin 10 has become our home away from home!  Thank you, Steve and Jayne”

“Pine Terrace is THE perfect family fishing resort. It’s exactly what I envisioned for our 1st family fishing trip. Good fishing, clean cabins, wildlife, and always something for the kids (ages 7, 11, 17) to do. Steve, Jayne, and Landon were great hosts and run a top notch resort.  Our family of 5 traveled from Arizona and it was worth every minute flying and driving. We’ll get back as soon as we can. ”
– Jeff & Chris P.


“Dear Steve, Jayne and Landon,
You run a first-class resort!  Everything is clean and modern, and it’s so very private.  Our group loved all the watercraft — paddleboat, water bikes, canoes, kayaks — and took advantage of the beautiful, calm lake whenever we got the chance.  It was such a delight to sit out on our screened-in porch in the morning with a cup of coffee, listening to the loons call.  Several evenings we were able to set up our croquet set on the ample lawn and play a game or two while we grilled dinner (Tigger often came over to socialize with us).  This was a first real visit to the state of Minnesota for all of us, and I know we all thought that we couldn’t have chosen a lovelier vacation spot.  If only we could have stayed for another week.
Thank you all for your hospitality.  It was such a pleasure meeting you and spending our vacation at your fabulous resort.  It was quite a drive for us, but definitely well worth it.  I certainly  hope that we’re able to stay with you again.”
– Freyja and Rick J.


“My husband & I stayed at Pine Terrace resort for a 3 day getaway. We had a wonderful time hiking the nature paths, rowing in a boat on the pond and exploring the smaller chain of lakes. We stayed in cabin #2. It was spotless and decorated really nice. We had our own semi=private campfire pit area which they restocked with firewood daily. The beach looked really nice and the water is very clean but it was too late in the season and cool to use it. I would recommend Pine terrace for a family vacation or a romantic getaway as well.”
