Happy Fishing Widow
My husband and boys love to fish and have often encouraged me to join them on their trips. Often, the resorts/cabins are very rustic, outdated, and uncomfortable. My experience at White Eagle was completely the opposite - a wonderful, well maintained and thoughtful resort. The cabin was cozy yet updated, comfortable couch and chair for reading, and recently remodeled bathrooms. Everything was very clean. Throughout the resort, many inviting chairs and benches offer a gorgeous view to relax and read or watch the kids play at the beach. There was even fresh coffee served by the boat house! The game room was well maintained and offered an alternative to fishing when it rained. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. We had an issue with our boat trailer on our way to White Eagle that required repair. Given it was Labor Day weekend, finding someone to fix it was going to be a challenge. However, it was expertly fixed by an uncle of a staff member, who was there and knew just what to do. We were very grateful. As long as the fishing trips are to White Eagle, I am happy to join my avid fishermen, as I will enjoy the cabin and resort, and everyone is happy!
We had a blast! Caught our limit in walleye "eaters" and some nice ones that had to go back. The Lantry's are gracious hosts and I'll always remember falling asleep to the call of loons mixed with the gentle roll of thunder. Rodger & Tina
One of the things we love about your resort...not having to bring our entire household with us! We love that you provide: towels, kitchen towels, dish soap, paper towel, garbage bags and toilet paper! That is the list of things we used to have to bring with us at the last place we stayed! Chairs too!
Best Resort Experience In 20+ years
Our extended family (of 13+) have stayed at about 7 or 8 different resorts in the northern Minnesota/Canadian region for over 20 years. We just stayed a week at White Eagle resort for the first time and this has been hands down our best experience to date. Tom/Steph and staff are extremely accommodating and TRULY want their guests to have the best vacation possible. They present a very laid back, casual demeanor around the guests yet work feverishly "behind the scenes". This resort is unbelievably clean with tons of amenities. White Eagle sits on Lake Vermilion which is absolutely gorgeous and provides excellent fishing. Last week we were in the neighborhood of 1,000 bluegills, 100+ smallmouth bass, 50+ largemouth bass, 25+ northern, 25 crappie, and 200+ walleye.
CAN'T BEAT THAT!"

“Another great White Eagle Resort vacation"
Thanks again to White Eagle Resort for another fabulous vacation. The staff is so friendly. Thanks Tom for showing us how to fillet a northern with no bones. Everyone of all ages has things to do. The beach is always clean for playing sand toys, kayaks, canoe, water trampoline and paddle boards are great. The fishing off the docks keeps kids entertained for hours. The new shuffle board for the game room is a great addition. We tried out the Kingfisher this year and it is another great cabin. Fishing was good and Lake Vermilion is beautiful. Hope to see you next year.

I highly recommend White Eagle Resort for a wonderful place to reconnect with family members. We had not see my brother & sister-in-law in 13 years as they live in Alaska.We wanted a place that was big enough so we could all stay in one cabin. We stayed in the Timber Jay and it was more than I had expected!! The "cabin" was very clean, the beds were comfortable, the amenities in the cabins were great, and it had an awesome view of the lake. Tom and Stephanie were very friendly and accommodating. I was impressed by the free water "toys" they had available and had a few laughs watching 2 of my brothers on the paddle boats. I would definitely recommend White Eagle Resort to anyone looking for an wonderful vacation spot. A great place to kick back and relax.

"Tom, Anne, Ranae and all,
Thanks so much for the wonderful time we had at your resort in late August. The cabin was great as well as the beach side fun, eagles, fishing and more. It was just what we needed to get away and enjoy some family time before school started.

“We had an excellent time here at White Eagle Resort. The setting is gorgeous to say the least. We enjoyed the peace and quiet that was ours at this time of the year. We appreciate the time and effort you put into keeping everything attractive and functioning. We love Lake Vermilion and are always rewarded after the eight-hour drive from southern Wisconsin. The weather has been far beyond our expectations with sunny, cloudless skies and temperatures near 70 degrees. In on word, we say that truly – our vacation was “perfect.”
“My dad first brought us up here when I was 12 years old. Yesterday I turned 65. Today we remembered Dad where he caught a huge walleye. He was 94.”
“Thank you for your generosity! Our stay was fantastic. We had a great time, great weather – caught some fish & a tan. We loved the beach, Dayne & I had kayak races & jumped on the tramp. Samara had fun digging in the sand & swimming. My parents came with us & we all enjoyed the lake, the eagles – the scenery is beautiful. We went to Ely on a cloudy day & went to the Wolf Center, & the North American Bear Center – we enjoyed both & got great pictures. Bryan caught the 35” northern! (We’ll be back.) Thanks!”
“What a peaceful spot for a much-needed rest! Gold Finch cabin is beautiful, the lakeshore walk and hiking in the woods invigorating, and the bed was very comfortable. The soaring eagle showed us the way to this wonderful retreat!”
“We want to thank you all for a wonderful week and very memorable trip. My wife caught her first large fish (northern) and is still smiling about it. This was our first resort and can now see why people like doing it this way. We can’t wait until our next one. You have a wonderful resort and everything is so well taken care of. The dock boys did a great job cleaning all of our fish, you guys did a great job.”
“A wonderful two weeks away from the hot of Florida – very relaxing – lots of fun boating & fishing. Cabin is very comfortable – a home away from home.”
“Our whole family looks forward to the week spent here each year. Thanks for providing the place where we’ve shared fun times and great memories. Dock fishing rocks – next year we’ll try for the resident Muskie; all those bobbers in the water are sure to lure him in ☺ Thanks again for providing such a family-friendly atmosphere.“
“Learned how to fish again for the first time in 15 years. Love it here. God couldn’t have made a more beautiful place than Lake Vermilion. Can’t wait for our 2nd year. Best Vacation in years!”
“Wow what awesome weather, every single day was beautiful. 70-76 degrees, We caught several fish over the slot limit – talk about fun!!! We even had 2 meals of Walleyes, which nothing compares too. Mike & Bonnie – you have a perfect “get away” that is well kept, has beautiful scenery & gives a person a real taste of God’s works. Looking forward to year 3.”
“3rd summer here – 4th trip. Great time as usual. Weather has been beautiful – warm, sunny. Little rain yesterday. We love the view, the ducks, the chipmunks and meeting new people and seeing ones from years past. Cabin spotless as always. A wonderful vacation, again!”
“What a fantastic time we had! The cabin was beautiful, the beds were comfortable and the showers were hot. We had two meals of sunfish, which we caught in Richie’s bay at sun down. Caught a 41-inch Muskie and a few Northerns. We couldn’t find the Walleye, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time. Moosebirds is so close and their ice cream is delicious! Yum yum! Thank you White Eagle Resort for making our family vacation absolutely wonderful .”
