Bagley City Beach & Itasca State Park Beach
We are located directly between Bemidji and Itasca state Park. Choosing which to visit is hard, considering days can fly by spending time at each location. That is, if you can convince yourself to leave the cabin 'Eleanor' and property surrounding her. There are 100's of acres to roam on and explore, there are trails for walking and ATVing through the forest, berry picking at our place or the berry farm a couple miles down the road. The cabin is situated on stilts in the canopy of the pines away from everything else with a personal boulder landscaped fire pit and wrap around deck.
Ter-Lee Gardens: a couple miles away has asparagus, strawberry, raspberry, gourd and pumpkin picking.
Itasca State Park: 15 miles away has a sandy beach, home to the origin of the mighty Mississippi, a lodge to dine at, souvenier store, ice cream shoppe, ferry boat rides, bicycle & boat rentals, & ENDLESS trails! The place is gorgeous.
Bemidji, is home to the Sanford Event Center that hosts wonderful events and conventions regularly, the town regularly puts on many festivals: Dragon Boat Festivals, St. Paddys Parade, Water Carnival, Art Fairs, the town is highly involved in the community and provides us with lots to do. The historic side of town is home to the famous Paul Bunyan & Babe the Blue OX statues, antique shopping and great eating all with just a stroll around the old downtown, there is even a small children's museum and REALLY good live theater. The newer part of Bemidji has the newer stores and eating like TJ MAXX/Target & MANY restaurants.
We are in the center of three Indian reservations that provide 3 Spectacular Casinos within 35-45 minutes, the beautiful Ojibwe language is prevalent in the area and lives even on local signage. We are surrounded by fishing lakes, if you want to hop from lake to lake too. Again, that is if you can convince yourself to leave the beautiful forest on the property where cabin Eleanor is, and the Black Lantern Resort. Guests also enjoy ATVing in the area and find their ways down to local restaurants South of us on day trips!
