Little Norway Resort’s Stay Safe Initiative
UPDATED April, 2023

We are continuing to follow safe procedures resort-wide for the 2023 season. These procedures are structured to keep you, your family, and our staff safe.  This initiative will help you create memories at the lake while keeping safety in mind.  We will update our procedures and information as changes occur. We stay informed daily with news from health officials, and industry groups to ensure we are aware of and follow any new guidelines.


  • We have always maintained a high standard of cleanliness at the resort, but are taking extra precautions this summer in accordance with CDC and MDH guidelines and recommendations.  Each cabin will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before your arrival. We will be paying special consideration to high touchpoint areas.
  • We are planning on providing all bedding for 2023 - fitted, flat, pillows, comforters, and blankets. If you are planning to bring your bedding this summer please give use advance notice and we can make sure to not double up on all bedding. And of course, if you have a favorite pillow, or extra blanket feel free to bring it!


*We are planning on lodge/front desk check-in this summer. If you prefer car-side check-in please call our main number when you arrive (218-732-5480). Either way, we will provide you with your keys, sign-in sheet, and request a credit card on file for payment. The lodge front desk will be open for any questions or convenience store purchases.


*This summer we are again asking our guests to consider check-out on Friday evening by 4pm (THIS IS NOT REQUIRED) - applicable June 9th to Aug 25th, 2023.  This will allow us more time to clean, sanitize, and prepare each cabin for all stays this summer, including yours.  Again, this is not required, but if you accommodate this request, we would like to extend a $100.00 voucher to a future stay in 2024.  Bill pay will be processed on Friday as usual, please stop by the lodge to complete payment or indicate during the week if you would like the card on file to be charged.  Check-out will be the same as years past – keys on the table, doors unlocked, and trash disposed in the dumpster onsite. 

We encourage you to rebook before departure or confirm your standing reservation to ensure your preferences for your vacation next year.  Please make sure we have your most up-to-date email and phone number to guarantee your rebooking goes seamlessly.


  • The lodge convenience store will remain open for bait, firewood, sealed food, pop, and sundry purchases.  We ask that guests utilize the charge sheet feature and be billed at the end of the stay to limit contact.
  • The following amenities will be open and available for use:
    • Beach, beach chairs, and water toys (kayaks, canoe, paddle boards, and paddle boats)
    • Playground equipment
  • Our normal food & close proximity related activities are back on! - donuts & coffee, pontoon ride, hot dogs, nature hike, and ice cream.  As well as scavenger hunt (done at your leisure and unscheduled) and bingo outdoors.

As always, Little Norway Resort offers many opportunities for your family to get outside, enjoy the lake, and escape from the stress of day-to-day life.  Opportunities for enjoyment include: fishing, boating, campfires, walking, biking, day trips to Itasca State Park, and enjoying the beach, among many more activities.  Please continue to stay safe, stay healthy and be kind to one another. Thank you from your Little Norway Resort family.

Your hosts,

Ben, Steph, & Henry
