Pehrson Lodge - Minnesota resort opens new pet-friendly zone making it easy for guests to include their four legged family members when making vacation plans.

“We are excited to welcome well-controlled pets to our Minnesota resorts new “pet-friendly zone” said, Mary Hanson.

The pet friendly resort is located on one of the most scenic and pristine lakes in northern Minnesota. Pehrson Lodge on Lake Vermilion has been providing a true north woods experience for vacationers for over 100 years. Known for comfortable, newer and frequently updated accommodations, and a wide variety of waterfront services, the resort is surrounded by acres of forest; a true vacationers paradise.

The lake itself is known to be one of the finest fishing lakes in the state of Minnesota, the surrounding forests offer some excellent opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers, birders, berry pickers and, hunters in the fall. The range of activities available in the area is unlimited, with something for every member of the family to enjoy. Many of those activities are even more enjoyable for visitors if they are able to share the experiences with their pets.

Eric & Mary Hanson have pets of their own and understand the difficulty vacationers have when trying to make arrangements for their pets while they are away from home. Many people are reluctant to place their pets in boarding facilities and often feel the “family” is incomplete without these four-legged members. They realize the difference between a good vacation and a great vacation can simply be the inclusion of family pets. Yet, finding Minnesota resorts that allow pets can be very difficult, if not impossible.

In an effort to satisfy the needs of all vacationers, the Hanson’s have decided to set aside a special area dedicated to these trusted companions. “We are excited to welcome well-controlled pets to our new “pet-friendly zone” said, Mary Hanson. The “zone” includes the point area of the resort as well as many wooded acres traversed by scenic hiking trails. Several specific cabins have been designated for your pet friendly vacations. Northern Lights, Pines, Sunset View, Moonbeam, Sunbeam and Aurora cabins will be available for vacationers with pets.

Pets brought to the resort should be well behaved and common courtesies should be observed. For safety of pets and wildlife, it is recommended that pets always be on a leash while outdoors. Wildlife in the area is abundant with bear, deer, moose, otter, beaver, mink, fishers and many species of nesting birds and waterfowl, all of which could be enticing to loose pets.
