Family Vacations

Make Your Family Vacations Unforgettable.

Catching the first fish. Relaxing around the campfire. Exploring the lake from a stand-up paddleboard. Learning to waterski or sail for the first time. Watching the sunset from a pontoon cruise. These are the experiences that make life special. 

When you choose Pehrson Lodge Resort as your family vacation destination, you give each member of your family the chance to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Children's and Family Activities

We are happy to offer a range of projects and activities for the little ones in your group - and those who are young at heart! We're a family place, so we take pride in providing fun for guests of all ages. Activities are open to children and adults. 

If you're visiting June-August, your group can sign up for a project to complete outside the Main Lodge with a beautiful view of Lake Vermilion. Our instructor-led projects typically include glazing ceramics, tie-dying t-shirts, and painting and building model sailboats. Activities vary by year, but have also included step-by-step canvas painting and instructor-led yoga. 

A weekly activity schedule will be provided upon arrival. All instructor-led classes are hosted outside with space between groups for social distancing as needed.

"There was nothing more we could have wished for. This was our second year, and we've already booked for next year. Mary and Eric are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to be sure we were comfortable. Our family group traveled from California, Maryland, Indiana and Florida to be together for the week...well worth every minute we spent on planes and driving. We can't wait for next summer!"


"My family and I just visited the lodge on a week long vacation. The owners and the entire staff were welcoming, friendly and amazing. The atmosphere was beautiful, calming and so relaxing. Thank you to you all for helping make our family memories a true success!"
