Longbow Golf ClubDo you love to golf? Or maybe you just really like driving around a zippy cart all day? You can do both, you don’t need to choose. Have you played the course at Longbow Golf Club before? No? You are missing out my friends. Longbow is truly pristine. It’s an 18 hole course that is so well designed and challenging you will be very impressed. Now, I am not much of a golfer myself and neither is the Guide however, we have come to Longbow many times due to close friends and family being avid golfers. And we find the course to be breathtaking. The golfers among us love the course, it’s a fam favorite shall we say. (There are other courses in town and they are very nice as well.) Check out Longbow’s website for rates, tee times, specials, membership details and you will find a host of pictures on their photo gallery. It’s beautiful! So you’re in town for the weekend and looking for something to do between 8am-9am, why not hit the links! If you bring your wife, maybe she’ll be your driver. (That’s my job, along with putting because I’m the pro). Here’s their site: book your tee time today!

bed and breakfastYou say, “I understand that the Country Inn of Walker is the #1 Hotel in the area..but my wife is crazy for a B&B…what am I supposed to do now??” No fear, just relax and let me tell you about a quaint B&B right on Leech Lake that your wifey will LOVE. How do I know? Because I am a wifey who would love to stay there, so listen up!

This B&B has it all! The view, the suites, the boats, the trails, amazing gourmet breakfasts and golf packages- I mean come on, who would not love to stay here?! The thing about a B&B that makes it so special and so fun is the personal touch and the homey feel you just can’t get anywhere else. My husband has taken me to two B&B’s for romantic getaway’s and they have been some of the best memories we’ve had together. I can’t get enough of a good B&B and this B&B is ranked #1 on tripadvisor in Walker, check it out! www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g43608-d2325540-Reviews-Leech_Lake_B_B-Walker

If you have never tried out a B&B, I highly encourage you to give it a shot! I was a little skeptical at first, thinking it would be uncomfortable or awkward to be with the other guests at breakfast or just lounging around the home. Guess what? It’s not! It’s like being with an extended family you haven’t met yet, which I suppose could be bad for some of you..haha! Seriously, though, it’s not as weird as you have it pictured in your head. It’s relaxing and cozy and peaceful and the activities you have at your disposal are the funnest you can find in our neck of the woods. It doesn’t get much better! So here’s the link to their website to book your reservation, just hurry and call, the summer books up fast! Have a wonderful time! leechlakebb.com
