Lyn and Pam Carter (as well as Chandra, Amanda and Joshua) purchased Shamineau Acres Resort in the Fall of 1993. Lyn and Pam live year round on the resort and feel very blessed to have such a beautiful and peaceful setting to call home.
Lyn is 24/7 at the resort while Pam works in accounting at Brained Lakes Surgery Center with a flexible work schedule during the summer months. Chandra, Amanda, Joshua and their families are often at the resort enjoying the beautiful summer days and helping with upkeep and maintenance. We all enjoy working and playing at the resort as it’s the perfect place to be on a sunny day in lake country!
Over the years, the resort has seen many improvements but one thing that has not changed is the number of cabins. One of the most often heard comments is how peaceful, serene and quiet it is at the resort.
We have 7 cabins that are spread out over 800 feet of lakeshore ensuring our guests enjoy privacy and their very own piece of lakeshore. Each cabin has a picnic table, fire ring, small deck, clothes line, private dock and sandy beach for sun tanning or building sand castles. The swimming area, playground and lodge are centrally located.
Cabins 3, 4, 5 and 6 are so close to the water you can listen to the soothing sounds of the waves lapping the sandy beach. Cabins 1 and 2 sit back from the lake a very short distance and boast the most beautiful views of the lake. Cabin 7 is very spacious and works well for family get togethers.
Open the door to your Minnesota family vacation and step into a warm and inviting cabin complete with a fantastic view of Lake Shamineau. Get comfortable and stay a while and you will begin to notice the great surroundings: authentic up north cabin décor, flat-screen TV, unique cabin furniture and wonderful services and amenities such as comfortable bedding, a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Our guest cabins provide a relaxing getaway from the bustle and hustle of your busy everyday life, allowing your stay to take in the grander of the nature that surrounds our wonderful resort.
Our Shamineau Acres Resort visitors consist of individuals traveling alone, couples of all ages, groups and families and our cabins have something great for everyone. Select either a 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom cabin and you will find the perfect surroundings in which to enjoy the scenic lake views.
Relax in front of the TV or kick back and enjoy the scenic views of Lake Shamineau or get some work done with our in-room Wi-Fi access. Whether you are with us to relax, have an adventure or some romance, our cabins will leave you refreshed and ready to enjoy another great day on Lake Shamineau.
