Longville Minnesota

In the midst of our modern, busy and stressful lives, it can be difficult to find time to decompress and re-connect with our families and ourselves. Instead of taking a “normal” trip to an overly commercialized theme park or a busy tourist trap, consider planning an extraordinary vacation to the peaceful respite of Longville, Minnesota. Experience true rest and rejuvenation in the breathtaking wilderness of the scenic Northwoods of Minnesota. Commune with nature, play in the lush forests and crystal clear lakes and take some much deserved time to reconnect with yourself and your family!

Although Longville is quiet and peaceful, there are numerous family oriented activities in and around this quaint town.

For fishing, the lakes surrounding Longville cannot be beat! In their waters lie an abundance of bluegills, crappies, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northerns and muskies all waiting to be snagged on your line. Enjoy a pan of fresh fish cooked over a roaring fire after a leisurely day on the lake. Hunting is also plentiful here in the Minnesota Northwoods. Fishing and hunting guides are available for hire to assist you with your next expedition.

The summer months also bring a plethora of opportunities for terrestrial outdoor relaxation including hiking, mountain biking and ATV riding through the pine forests of the region.

Relax with a cappuccino, sit back and enjoy the local entertainment in the cozy “Common Grounds of Longville,” a coffee shop in downtown Longville. Featured entertainers include singers, acoustical musicians and poets, among others. Treat the family to an ice cream cone at the legendary Frosty’s. Relax with a tasty, home-cooked meal at the Redbird Cafe. For more elegant dining, consider Patrick’s Fine Dining and Lounge or the country club at the Ridgewood Golf Course. Catch the latest movie release at the Bear Pause Movie Theatre in nearby Hackensack. For evening entertainment, travel to the local town of Walker for a night of gaming entertainment at the Northern Lights Casino.

Winter may sound like an unwelcoming time to visit the Minnesota Northwoods. To the contrary, it is a delightful time to escape to this wintry playground. Snowshoe, cross country ski or snowmobile through the beautifully snowy forests. Enjoy some ice fishing on Girl Lake or Woman Lake. Dog sled racing is also popular in this neck of the woods. If you happen to be in the area during late January or early February, be sure to stop in for the Sled Dog Races on the Heartland and Paul Bunyan Trails. For daring souls, try the “polar plunge,” where brave visitors and locals take an icy dip into one of the area lakes!

Fitness gurus will love the Run Around Woman Plus, a 30K run around Woman Lake, held annually in May.
