Island View is a great, clean, well-maintained resort. Lisa and John are fabulous hosts. if you are looking for a northern Minnesota get-away you won't be disappointed. There are many different sizes of cabins all with great views of the lake. Every night has a breath-taking sunset.

Our family had an amazing week at Island View Resort. It's a perfect spot to unwind and relax. Great fishing, awesome hospitality, and nice amenities. The kids enjoyed the numerous activities available - beach, playground, paddle boards, basketball, volleyball, ping pong, foosball. I would highly recommend.

There simply aren't enough words to express how much we enjoyed our week at Island View Resort with the Matthews. Besides the fact that the amenities were clean and very well taken care of, there were activities that appealed to all of us throughout the week. There were 13 in our group from the age of 6 to 90 so...

This place is awesome! If your wanting to get away for a week or two, look no further. The owners and staff are truly amazing. The Hilcrest cabin was a perfect fit for the 7 of us. Nice and spacious. The fishing was a blast. We caught everything from large and small mouth bass, to perch, crappie, northern pike, and...

Keaton Thank You so much for the wonderful review. I love the part about "just you and the family fishing by day and playing cards by night". That is what it is all about coming and relaxing and making family memories by spending quality time together no distractions (other than the fish!!) We too hope that we will see you...

I have always enjoyed my time at Island View Resort. I have visited the Matthews Family for a number of years and have brought friends to stay with me too. I have always found the cabins to be immaculate clean and the resort well kept and very welcoming. The beach area is very child friendly and Pelican Lake is beautiful.

Island View has been our vacation resort for over 20yrs. The swimmimg is fun. The paddle boats are freguently used by the teens. The sand volleyball and playground has been a great addition and constant fun. Of course the fishing, whether on boat, docks, or on the fishing bench is our favorite. John,Lisa,and the girls are wonderful and always there...

Visited Island View in the slower part of the season and they worked with my brother and me to book a cabin for ten days. Each family spent 7 days and overlapped three full days, so we could be together and alone. We both had a wonderful time and as a bonus we hit just the right time when the...
