Resort History

The privately-owned cabin is nestled within the 3000 acre, internationally renowned Breezy Point Resort, conveniently located 30 miles north of Brainerd, 2-1/2 hours north of the Twin Cities, in the Lakes region of central Minnesota.  The dream of 1920's publishing tycoon Captain Billy Fawcett, creator of "Whiz-Bang Comics," Breezy Point gained a reputation as a "hideaway" for politicians, gangsters and movie stars in the 30's and 40's, and is enjoyed by Minnesota, U.S., and world-wide travelers today.  Voted "Best Family Resort" five-years-in-a-row (1998 - 2002) by Minnesota Parent, a popular Twin Cities family magazine and voted "Best Lakeside Resort" by the readers of Minnesota Meeting and Events Magazine.

BestView Cabin is located in the *resort community setting of "Fawcett's Cottage Hill," which was Breezy Point's first addition back in the 1930's.  Properties on Cottage Hill are named alphabetically, after streets in Minneapolis and St. Paul.  BestView Cabin, called "Girard," is separate, private property and is not part of nor is it affiliated with the Breezy Point Resort.

*Note: the resort community setting of the property is an active, populated location Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day--not for those seeking tranquil isolation. September and early October are quieter times at the cabin.
