The resort was great! Our cabin had plenty of space and everything we needed. The grounds were well kept and pleasant. The staff was also incredible, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back.

Best Memorial Day Weekend

Our family just returned from an amazing weekend at Island View Resort. The cabin was big and clean and the resort sits in a prime location with wonderful views of the lake. The Matthews family are the owners and made us feel especially welcome. We caught lots of fish which were skillfully cleaned by Bobby and Brendan who take care of the dock area, and help launch and dock the boats. For a wonderful fishing or family vacation you can’t go wrong staying here.

The owners are the nicest people alive. The resort is calm, beautiful, a pure slice of heaven. The cabins are so nice, clean and well-stocked with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Truly a bummer to ever have to leave!

My husband is having the best time ever. He says the place is beautiful & very relaxing. The management went above and beyond to surprise my hubby for our anniversary since we were apart this year! I have never experienced this kind of service!

Our family loves going to Island View Resort! It is truly a very special place. John and Lisa are excellent hosts that make us feel right at home and take good care of during our stay. The lake is great to fish whether it be out in a boat, or right off the dock! We look forward to hopefully visiting again in the fall! Our son is now the 4th generation to fishing on Pelican! What a gift!

2 Weeks in Heaven

My wife, children and I just returned from two weeks in one of the most beautiful locations. Island View Resort is situated on a point in Pelican Lake in Orr, MN.

With 13 cabins from 2 BR to 4 BR, there is room for your family or a group, if you book ahead. With a wonderful beach and water activities as well as fishing that will thrill even the biggest enthusiast, Island View has something for everyone.

The views from throughout the resort will have you daydreaming long after your vacation is over. If you are as lucky as we were, you might experience the Northern Lights so bring your good camera.

The resort is owned and operated by Lisa and John Matthews and their 3 daughters. We have traveled extensively and the Matthews are the definition of perfect hosts. A young man, Brendan, will help you with anything from aiding you with launching your boat or getting you set up with a kayak or paddle board. If you enjoy catching fish but hate the idea of cleaning them to eat, Brendan has perfected the art regardless of species.

I can tell you, you will not be disappointed with time spent here. We just returned from our 13th year visiting Island View Resort. Maybe we’ll see you there next year.
