Quarterdeck Resort on Gull Lake in Minnesota is a Four-Season Vacation Destination.
We love fall on the west shore as the light and leaves turn golden, and the lake glistens. Come step into your time at the resort and enjoy whatever makes you happy. From the simple and spontaneous, to planned and adrenaline pumping.
Here are our TOP TEN Nisswa and Brainerd Lakes Area Fall Fun Ideas.
Take a bus tour around Gull Lake! Dine at one of the participating Nisswa restaurants for some fantastic German food and drink specials. All proceeds benefits will be distributed to Confidence Learning Center and The Sharing Bread Soup Kitchen. Sign up at any of the establishments for a chance to WIN 2023 Oktoberfest tickets.
At Quarterdeck Resort, we’ll have Live Music with Jimmie Jay Anderson 3pm-6pm, Oktoberfest Beer Samples, Food Specials – German Sausage, Schnitzel Sandwich, Big Ass Pretzels, and an a good time! Prost!
The biggest Northland Arboretum fundraiser of the year is also the most terrifying! Walk the spooky trails for their 20th annual Haunted Trail fundraiser. There’s fun for everyone with low scare and high scare options. Brand new themes include Alice in Wonderland, Day of the Dead, Star Wars, and an INTENSE high scare section that will make your screams extreme! The trail ends with games, treats, and (cash-only) concessions.
Enjoy a self-guided tour of the Nisswa History Center and Museum, which includes the historic Pioneer Village, Depot, and Caboose.
By touring the grounds and log homes, you will glimpse a quieter, more peaceful–but hard-working life at the turn of the century. Take time to relax in the seating area alongside the Heritage Garden, which is filled with native plants that come from local farms and gardens from over 75 years ago.
Did you know the Brainerd Lakes Area is the golf mecca of Minnesota? Considering the lush landscape of woods and wetlands, it’s easy to see why the Brainerd Golf Trail was previously ranked 41st on Golf Digest’s “Top 50 Golf Destinations in the World.”
There are over 20 golf courses dotting the Gull Chain of Lakes; you’ll find as many golf holes as there are fishing holes.
Experience a Thrilling 7-Line Zipline Tour! The thrilling Brainerd Zip Line Tour is the perfect outdoor adventure to add excitement to any Brainerd Lakes vacation. Experience 15-mile views on 7 zip lines, and our 65′ adrenaline-pumping suspension bridge.
