Mom and Pop resort

Recommended Posts

gravelle

I am looking for a mom and pop style resort for July or August. It will be just my girlfreind and I and we are looking for something nice but affordable. She will fish for a while but, we will most likely be golfing, and checking out the local attractions and shopping areas as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Gravelle, every resort on Kab @ Ash River is family owned, some from generation to generation. Many have lodges, bars, restraunts, many have nothing but peace and tranquility with cabins only and etc. The Kabetogama, and or Ash River tourism bureau and the Resort Locator above to see what resorts offer, price ranges and in most cases take a virtual tour. god luck, guts

Gravelle, I would recommend Birch Grove as a classic M&P resort. Elaine is a fine host.

Gravelle, once again, I will point out that Kabetogama and Ash River for the most part are all Ma & Pa type operations. Look at the Resort locator above for those areas and see what amenities you want, zero in on a few resorts and check out there websites from the Resort Locator link above and take a virtual tour.

Some of the resorts have great dock locations you can fish from or watch beautiful sunups and sundowns, some have great harbors to protect your boat, and etc.

Those months can be quite warm and buggy, some cabins have A/C and or ceiling fans, some have nice screened in porches and so forth. It is important to us up here that you have an enjoyable vacation so you return many times, good luck, guts

I concur with Guts, I've stayed at a couple on the kab and prefer the one I'm at now, but the Kab tourism web site list them on on ash river and kab. Finding a good mom and pop will be no problem, your shopping will be for the price you want and what ammenities you need.

I would say Fronteir Resort on the ash river, very freindly place and fun/interesting people. If you call tell them Big Jeff sent ya. It is family owned and operated and if you want a place where you will be taken care of like family. The are also very reasonable with cost and they have great food at the resort. Good breakfast and bloodies!!!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
