Mille Lacs Family Cabins

Clean, cozy and intentionally furnished, our family cabins at The Red Door Resort are the perfect choice to host your next holiday family gathering. All of our cabins are equipped with comfortable beds plus tidy bathrooms, ready-to use kitchens (which include cookware & tableware), A/C, heating, WiFi, Satellite TV, dining area plus access to outdoor seating and fire pits. 

Multiple cabins are available for rent, with room for 5 to 7 people. When each individual family in your group rents their own cabin, friends and relatives can enjoy each other’s company during daytime adventures and then retreat to their private space for rest. Settled in and content, your family can begin to reminisce in memories, old and new.

On Site

During your holiday family gathering, make time to just be with each other. Slow strolls throughout the property will lead you to lovely wooded and lake views. Bring your mug of coffee or hot cocoa along so you can take sips in warmed hands while you enjoy the laughter of loved ones in the crisp Minnesota air.

Back at the cabins enjoy smaller, cozier moments while you watch favorite movies, enjoy a board game or work together on that 1000 piece puzzle.

Then, as night approaches, bundle up for stories around the fire pit. Look up in awe together at the wonder of the brilliant night sky pointing out constellations and hoping luck is on your side for a peek at the Northern Lights.

Have something special planned for the extended family? Consider using our Event Center. This 1,600 square foot space is a great place to set up shop for a family gathering. Tables and chairs are available for that special holiday meal where everyone is sure to find a seat at the table!

Out and About

If your holiday family gathering needs a little adventure, consider planning some day trips off site. 

A drive to one of the nearby state parks provides you with access to miles of trails in varying Minnesota landscapes. Stop in to the visitor centers for history exhibits and resources. Has the snow already hit the ground? Consider bringing along or renting snowshoes or skis!

Looking for something indoors? Make a stop at the Grand Casino for a try of your luck on the machines or at the tables. Enjoy games in the arcade or enjoy downtime at the spa or shopping. 

For musical interests, you’ll want to check The Ripple Center’s programming schedule for performances, dance events and more. For something a little more laid back, consider taking in a show at the historic Rialto Theatre with movie popcorn and candy boxes to share! 

Another option,  enjoy a meal together at some of our favorite local eateries. Breakfast and dinner out or pizza to bring back to the cabin, you’ll be happy to find several nearby options to suit everybody’s tastebuds.

Truly, this holiday family gathering is one you’ll not soon forget! You can unpack and settle into your home-away-from-home with ease of mind knowing your family has everything they need for a peaceful retreat together. From chats at the cabin to treks through the snow, at The Red Door Resort your family has the opportunity to strengthen ties and create more memories.
