If you plan on coming here, you probably want to stay for a week at least because it is very nice and highly relaxing. This resort has many different accommodations for different size groups and different sized budgets. Since we had a group of 60, I was able to see many of the different places available to rent.

My family has used various facilities at Peters' for years (in fact, my wedding reception was there 44 years ago!). The past two years we have been gathering as an entire family for boating, golf, and beach time; Peters' is the perfect place for a big family reunion. Casual lake setting, friendly staff and also friendly guests surround the units...

This was our 3rd year staying here and after each stay we can't wait to come back! The grounds, beach, boat rentals, golf course, and campfires were great. They should update some of the rooms but the big house is newly redone and very nice. The restaurant food was surprisingly tasty too. Top notch service from this almost 100 year...

I rented a cabin and a condo for a four generation family reunion held in Glenwood, Minnesota. The resort is not inexpensive but no rooms are cheap in the lakes region in the vicinity of Alexandria, Minnesota in August. The cabin overlooked the beautiful 18 hole golf course which I did not play but others in my party did and...

We have had our family reunion here for the past four years. The cabins are clean and modern and perfect for our big crowd. The breakfasts and dinners are always tasty. The golf course is truly amazing when considering its history. And the beach, especially at sunset, well, you will soon learn how this place got its name. We will...

“The Pezhekee Lodge & other similar lodges are excellent choices for large groups/families even tho set back from the beach.”

“This is an exceptionally fine place for an extended family to stay. Do not expect to find deals on the various hotel web sites for the first week of August in this particular location. Call the hotel and make reservations the old fashioned way. There were a number of other family reunions and wedding parties that were happening during our visit. This is a place for families and all the guests were well behaved. A really all American place.”
