Escape to the fun and relaxation of Brindley’s
Harbor Resort on legendary Leech Lake

Brindley’s 2021

We are open, but due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, we will continue some of last years safety practices for at least the beginning of the spring season.  We have decided restore our normal practice of providing pillows and blankets. Guests no longer need to bring their own.

Hopefully, most other services and conveniences can also be restored by summer.  We apologize for the inconvenience but feel changes are still necessary for the safety of our guests and staff. With over 1200 feet of lake shore there is lots of room for outdoor social distancing.

For arriving registered guests, we will greet you with a smile . . . but, no handshake. We and all visitors are expected to observe strict social distancing, eight or ten, not six feet! As always, our outstanding harbor staff will assist guests in launching and securing boats in the harbor. The harbor staff will still clean your fish but guests will be required to bring fish to the bait house holding tanks and hang fish on their numbered lodging hook using provided stringers or fish baskets. We will still sell gasoline but depending on boat configuration, may require guests to pump their own. Ice is available for purchase.

The lodge is closed for all recreation. Check-in will be at the lodge front door without signed registration. Assigned lodging units will be unlocked. There will be no retail sales of snacks, ice-cream, beverages, pizza, tackle, clothing or groceries. For now, we will not be having bingo night, or the weekly fishing contest. We continue to develop plans for safe and secure checkout and payment practices. Our housekeeping staff will provide sheets blankets and pillows, dish towels and dish soaps, paper towels and toilet paper. They have new levels of sanitation but to limit potential spread of the virus we need guests to:

  • Hand sanitizer, sanitary wipes or other items typically still scarce due to the virus
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Bath towels

A detailed list of the added cleaning and sanitizing practices we have adopted for enhanced guest safety is posted on the FAQ page (found under the "About Our Resort" heading). We look forward to serving you and will do our best to ensure you have a safe visit. But, of course, no one should visit if they have had exposure to the virus within 14 days of their arrival.
