With the stress and busyness of our everyday lives, we often seem to lose sight of what is truly important in life – family. Constantly bombarded by television advertisements, cell phone calls, text messages and e-mail, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to get away from it all, relax and truly re-connect with our spouses, children and friends. So this year, why choose to vacation at a touristy, overcrowded amusement park or sight-seeing destination? Why not reclaim your vacation? Reconnect with your friends and family in the scenic Minnesota Northwoods. Rest, rejuvenate and reinvigorate yourself with a vacation to Girl Lake in Minnesota!
Situated on the edge of the picturesque Girl Lake is the charming town of Longville, Minnesota. An hour north of the Brainerd Lakes Area, Girl Lake is secluded, but provides easy access to the shopping and dining opportunities of area communities. Girl Lake, Woman Lake and the attached Broadwater Bay together comprise the Woman Lake Chain, in total amounting to over 5,000 acres of peaceful lake waters. In fact, the Woman Lake Chain is often claimed to be one of the most beautiful lake clusters in entire state of Minnesota. Fishing here is plentiful and the lakes are brimming with local fish species such as muskies, northerns, walleyes, crappie, sunfish, bluegill, smallmouth bass and largemouth bass.
Truly an "all-season" vacation destination, there is no such thing as a bad time to visit the majestic Girl Lake. In spring and summer, visitors will delight in the plethora of water sports and activities available on the lake. Boating, water-skiing and fishing are all popular on the waters of Girl Lake. For terrestrial pastimes, consider hiking along the shores of the lake, relaxing with a good book on the deck of your cabin or simply watching for area wildlife such as deer, coyotes, bobcats, bald eagles or maybe even the occasional black bear! Birdwatchers will enjoy the wide variety of waterfowl species living on Girl Lake. You may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of one of the bald eagles living in this area of the Minnesota Northwoods.
When visiting Girl Lake, be sure to schedule in a visit to the Deep Portage Conservation Reserve in the nearby town of Hackensack. With ten square miles of Minnesota hills, pristine lakes, flowing rivers and old wood forests, Deep Portage is a great spot to spend a day learning about the environment of north central Minnesota. Special classes and educational programs are offered throughout the year, so be sure to check the schedule before planning your visit. Deep Portage is also home to a vacation lodge for longer stays here in the Minnesota Northwoods.
Along the shores of Girl Lake, downtown Longville is a great spot for an afternoon of shopping. Don't miss the nostalgic and fun weekly turtle races, held every Wednesday in Longville throughout the summer months! Stop in for an afternoon espresso, some live entertainment or just a chat with the friendly, welcoming local crowd at the Common Grounds Coffee Shop of Longville. For a great breakfast or lunch, visit the Red Bird Cafe. Or, stop in for a decadent treat at the famous Frosty's. With championship golf courses, antique shopping and fabulous dining, there is something for everyone in your family or traveling party in the quaint community of Longville.
In fall and winter, visitors can enjoy hiking through the countryside as the hues change from autumn brilliance to a white, snowy wonderland. Cross-country ski along one of the numerous area trails. Certain trails are even designated for snow-mobile riding. On Girl lake, ice-fishing is abundant and visitors should not miss the chance to experience this classic Minnesota pastime. Or, simply cozy up under a blanket by the fireplace in your cabin and observe the wintry wilderness of the world surrounding you.
Accommodations choices are plentiful along the shores of Girl Lake. Resorts such as the Girl Lake Resort and the Pine Ridge Resort feature an array of comforts and amenities for visitors. For a bit more privacy and home-like comfort, consider renting one of the fabulous vacation homes or cabins situated along the shores of this beautiful lake.
