            We want to invite you to our little piece of paradise located just three hours north of the Twin Cities. Pleasant Ridge is a small secluded resort nestled on the southwest shore of beautiful Second Crow Wing Lake.

            We have eight cabins perched on the ridge overlooking the lake. You know you’re in the north woods when you hear the loons singing and the fish splashing while you enjoy your evening campfire in front of your cabin. And in the morning, everybody talks about the sunrise and the reflection that sparkles off the lake. Stephanie put it best, “I loved the full moon rising and reflecting on the lake, the sunrises, loons on the lake, campfire, and the comfortable bed after a long day. The only thing I did not like..... was having to leave so soon!. :( When we come back, it will be for a week or more.”

            Second Crow Wing Lake is one of 11 on the chain of Crow Wing Lakes. Since the Crow Wing River connects them all, you can access the first, third, and fourth Crow Wing Lakes from Pleasant Ridge Resort. All the lakes are filled with northern pike, large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and walleye.

            We bought the resort in 2011, and we take pride in our customer service. Shelly says, “We had a great weekend at Pleasant Ridge resort thanks to Steve, Libby, and the boys, who went out of their way to give us a first rate vacation experience. We’ve stayed at a lot of resorts and their hospitality is beyond compare. Our cabin was clean and cozy and the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely return!”

             We have a safe beach, great fishing, and a quiet atmosphere if you just want to sit by the lake and take it all in!
