Boat and Pontoon Rentals Available For Your Minnesota Vacation

Part of the fun of a lakeside vacation is being able to get out on the lake for some fishing, or kayaking. At Pine Terrace Resort, Star Lake and the Ossawinimakee Chain in Minnesota are perfect for stress-free exploration on the six interconnected lakes. Small enough for a sheltered experience yet vast enough provide an exciting adventure!
An important part of the Minnesota resort vacation are lakeside amenities at a family resort or fishing resort. Because all but three lakefront cabins sit right on the natural unspoiled lake shore of Star Lake, we want our guest to experience all that a family vacation or fishing vacation can offer. We have priced our boats and pontoons to make this an affordable Minnesota vacation headquarters.

All our water toys, kayaks, water bikes, canoes, and paddleboats are free for your use. This helps keep your Brainerd lakes area resort vacation costs down. Star Lake and the Ossawinnamakee Chain of lakes are quiet and peaceful, offering an uninterrupted day on the calm tranquil waters. Getaway to the past, a slower pace of life, although hard to find anywhere these days, Pine Terrace Resort offers just that place.

Bringing a Boat?

If you are bringing a boat to Star Lake it is important to make sure your boat has been out of the water for enough time for prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. This is very dependent to temperature/moisture/time of year and other environmental conditions. Your boat needs to be clean and dry at least 8 to 14 days before re-entering another lake or river. In order to launch your boat here at Pine Terrace Resort it is required that is has been out and dried adequately from any lake. This to prevent the spread of these damaging Aquatic Invasive Species. Here is a link to an estimator that gives a guideline of how long it really takes to dry a boat before it can be put into another body of water. Aquatic Invasive Species Estimator
