VACATION

But where to stay ?
Cabin rentals , RV parks and campgrounds each offer specific advantages and amenities , depending on your destination and your timeline .
Appeldoorns Sunset Bay Resort on Mille Lacs , 45401 Mille Lacs Parkway , Isle , for example , was halfway filled last fall for July and August 2021 , according to general manager Ethan Rogers .
“ Thanks to COVID , a lot of regular customers postponed their reservations for a year ,” Rogers said . “ That left open opportunities for new folks , people who came here and fell in love with it .”
Even off-season , Rogers said , “ We were full every weekend .”
The resort offers standard motel-type rooms , plus a full house with 10 bedrooms that accommodates 26 people . destinationupnorth . com 5
