My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Hiawatha Beach Resort from September 12 – 15, 2023. While I wish I could share photos of the trophy fish we caught, what we can share is the remarkable kindness and hospitality we received from A.J., Ben and the rest of the staff. Every request we made was fulfilled with cheerful willingness beyond our expectations. It started on the day I made our reservation. We had one cabin in mind and A.J. was quick to suggest an alternative cabin that ideally suited our needs. Our cabin faced a well-maintained field of green serving as a foreground for a beautiful view of Leech Lake. With mosquito season behind us, we had cool crisp mornings compared to our Kansas City area home and daytime temperatures that allowed for comfortable clothing until the setting sun signaled a light jacket. More than anything, I was able to indulge myself with as much peace and quiet as I desired. The was no moon, so the stargazing was excellent at night. Best of all, when it was quiet, it was dead quiet and when it was dark, there was just enough light on the grounds to keep your bearings, but otherwise the area wasn’t affected by light pollution. If you need a dose of peace and tranquility, it’s there to be had. If you seek joyous fun and amenities, you’ll find those also. And we did catch plenty of fish and particularly enjoyed the dock fishing at the Marina. Many thanks to our friends at HWB!
