Awards, Honors and Articles about Brookside Resort

Brookside was featured in Minneapolis Star Tribune's Reader's Guide to Minnesota Resorts in 2012.

"At least 35 years ago, our family and my husband's sister's family would travel two weeks every year to two different locations looking for the perfect resort. When we found Brookside, we quit looking any further. ... Several years ago the grandchildren were old enough and we started back. ... I'm not sure if it is the indoor/outdoor pool, the soda fountain and ice cream counter, the game room, the water activities or just the freedom to run from one event to the other that captivates them. ... They like it better than Mexico."

Mary Ann Johnson, Delano, Minn.

....."Our annual week together is so much more than a simple vacation. It's a special time for out family; a time for us to strengthen our connections and pass traditions on to our children"

Sandy Meyer, Shoreview, Minn.

Needless to say, we are proud of Brookside. Though the resort has been recognized by these publications, the nicest thing about Brookside is her guests. Many return year after year, and help to make new families feel right at home.
