About the Inn at Dunvilla
Lakes Inn at Dunvilla is one of the most unique and interesting hotels in the Midwest, possibly the entire United States. Situated in the heart of Minnesota’s lake country, our inn combines world-class amenities with outstanding service to bring a fantastic experience during your stay.
The inn consisted of 30 total rooms, including 7 suites. One of these suites is a deluxe room, while the other is a premier two-room suite that offers a high level of comfort and luxury. Amenities at our inn include a saltwater pool and hot tub, a lounge and bar area, as well as a spacious meeting room that is perfect for business events or celebrations. We also provide a high-quality fitness room so you can stay physically active during your stay.
Opened in 2016, the Lakes Inn has been under new ownership since 2019. Previously, the site was located on a 9-hole golf course for the original resort.
The site has actually been an attraction since the late 1800’s, when Wilson E. Dunn purchased 160 acres and built cabins to house tourists flocking from the Midwest. With abundant fishing and gorgeous scenery, it’s obvious why the area thrived as a tourist destination.
The original resort owner eventually moved into government service in the Minnesota House of Representatives, but maintained ownership of the resort for many years. He sold the resort in the mid 1970’s, and the old cabins were replaced with updated condos in 1992. The entire property was eventually split; the Lakes Inn at Dunvilla now sits in an area that was previously part of the resort’s golf course.
Today, the hotel, the site, and the entire region attract people from all over Minnesota, the Midwest, and the United States.
