Thinking about Spring!

Well, after our last couple of snowfalls here in the Grand Rapids area totaling about 14" followed up with a couple of -15 to -18 nights and two days of snowplowing on the 4-wheeler, I decided the only thing that would cheer me up would be to start thinking about the upcoming season. Last fall we stripped and started re-staining Cabin 4. Almost got her done when three weeks of rain and some early snow in October put an end to that. ... Read more

Change in our Pet Policy

I know we have had the change on the website for over a year but I thought it would be a good idea to let you know here that we are no longer accepting pets of any kind at Hidden Haven Resort. Read more

What does it take to Minnesota family resort ready for summer?

This is a question I get asked by a lot of our guests. I thought it might be fun to list what we have to do prior to the first guest of the fishing season arriving. Trust me, there isn't room for it all. 1) Yard work: raking the leaves that blew in from last year (the price of having trees), lots of sticks to pick up, remove any dead trees, plant flowers, clean gutters, seed in bare spots in lawn, mow ...

Make a great Minnesota golf deal part of your Hidden Haven experience!

I know a lot of our guests bring the golf clubs along and take a break from fishing for a round or two of golf.  This year two local courses, Pokegama and Eagle Ridge, are offering some really great Minnesota golf deals only to resort guests. All season Hidden Haven guests will be able to play 18 holes at either course with a cart for only $35 per person. That's a great deal for a round of golf at either of two ... Read more

Spring Bluegill Fishing

Everyone always asks me where to find the big bluegills. In the spring they can be pretty easy to find because they are focused on only two things; spawning and eating. You will find them early in the season, just after ice-out, in the warmest water because that is where the food is going to be located. These areas tend to be shallow, dark-bottomed bays or shoreline areas on the north side of the lake or large bay ... Read more

Spring is in the Air?

Well, if the long-range forecasts pan out we should start seeing some more seasonable temperatures shortly. It was still -25 here this morning and we are ready for a change. The 20's and 30's will seem downright balmy later this week. The good news is that there is plenty of ice and a virtually untouched population of big bluegills ready and waiting for you. So if you are thinking about a March ice-fishing trip give us a call! Great rates, too. ... Read more
