What do others have to say about Westridge Shores
October: We stayed here last year for our wedding night and had a wonderful wedding weekend! We are back again for our 1 year anniversary! It is soooo relaxing and the fall colors are awesome! I hope this becomes an anniversary tradition! Thanks for a wonderful cabin!
August: We had a great week. Weather was a little cool, but that did not stop our granddaughter from going swimming. She had a blast here this weekend and did not want to go home!!! She loved the crafts and the minnow races --- it was great to hear her giggle when she was chasing the minnow down the track. Your extra effort pays off! Thank you for a wonderful week. We caught sunnies and crappies and enjoyed their day visit :)
August: What a fun family oriented resort! We enjoyed relaxing, crafting, boating, meeting people, etc. The highlight for Nathan was all the friends and water bike! We hope to be back soon! Thanks for everything!
June: You guys run a first-class resort, and we are grateful for all you do. From the kids activities, to the awesome cabins, to the emergency boat rescues - you are the best! Each year, our week at Westridge goes too fast. By the time we get home, we are already looking forward to next year. Thanks again, and we will see you next summer!
Thank you so much for making this vacation the best one this year. I loved all the crafts you made/planned. I love having new friends that come here and we can than hang out. I will definitely recommend this to others. This is THE best resort to stay in. I am very sad to leave.
July: By the end of the week Mason jumped off the yellow raft and Sawyer slid down the slide :) We always looked forward to "kid craft" everyday then playing on the playground afterward. We made a campfire every night with, of course, lots of s'mores. Thanks again!
June: This was one of the best vacations our family has ever taken. Love the cabin!! My boys loved all the projects Erin and Eric did with them. Never a dull moment. They made some friends for the week. Had great fishing, lost a few lines, it was great. Couldn't ask for a better resort!
September: Another special week at Westridge - in a different cabin - great choice! The sun is barely - red and round - over the trees and rippling the lake. I can never decide if I like the sun or moon shine better! A new adventure - trying the pottery - even though' I'm not too familiar with that type of activity, but I think I'll do it again! Thanks for providing the mental and physical "break space" from the usual day today stresses! I'm looking forward to more contracts with Westridge and the great owners - Erin and Eric,
Peace and many blessings for your ongoing endeavors
August: This was a super introduction to vacationing in Minnesota. This resort proved even better than we hoped for - loved the family atmosphere. Thanks to Eric and Erin for their hospitality
July: Had a great time swimming and painting. This year we came with our friends. We had lots of laughs and great times around the bonfire. Our cousins came up for the day and we did a lot of jumping off the yellow raft. The girls both did flips off the raft. They ended playing with Zoey and Alphie! It was a wonderful vacation we hate to see it end. We all love it here and look forward to coming back, Eric an Erin always make our stay perfect.
August: We always have so much fun staying here, every day is filled with laughter and fun whether we're swimming by the dock, playing volleyball and tetherball, or just sitting in our cabin and watching movies! Can't wait to come back next year!
August: First time in Alexandria! Very nice. Lake is so calming. Cabin 8 has nice windows very open but warm felling! Works well for our family and grandkids! Can't wait for a boat ride.
June: Our week vacation has been a great time here. Once again. We have enjoyed Cabin #2. It has been a fun filled week and have enjoyed every minute. It is always a joy staying here at Westridge and seeing Eric, Erin and their family. This plate has come a long way since we have started coming here and we are loved seeing it grow. It has been a pleasure introducing our child to a place we love. Until next year.
June: Most comfortable beds ever! The boys and I had a wonderful time fishing, crafting, and playing games with family. I love having a playground so close for them to run off excess energy!
October: It felt like home. We have a fun time hanging out by the lake, by the bonfire, playing intense games of tetherball and relaxing in the cabin. We look forward to coming back next year!
September: What a fabulous week. the sunrises, blue skies, and cool breezes made our stay very enjoyable. Meeting others from Maryland, Iowa and (of course) Minnesota was lots of fun. Paddle boating, pontoon ride, campfires, and the craft room are all part of the experience that we will remember. Retreating to our cabin after each day of activities was something we really looked forward to. sharing the cabin with two other families has brought us closer and built memories that we will cherish
Thanks to Erin and Eric for being so patient and helpful during our stay. Hopefully, we can do this again!
Septemver: We had so much fun the hospitality was beyond what we expected the cabin were immaculate. We slept comfortable, nice, clean, quiet resort. Wish it could have been longer. But will see you soon.
June: 3rd year in a row that our family has come to Westridge Shores and still cannot say enough good times about this resort and Erin and Eric on everything they do to make your stay so enjoyable. We truly appreciate everything you have done for us always so kind. You both have to be the hardest workers I have ever known.
March: Our group of 26 people came down for a ski trip at Andes. We also brought our snowmobiles down and found great trails. We took in some ice fishing too and were successful in catching (and releasing) about 30 small perch. We hope to be back soon!
August: We loved making tie-dye shirts, taking the pontoon out on the lake and many, many trips down the water slide. this is a beautiful cabin and such a special resort. My husband and I got lots of rest and relaxation and the boys had a blast. We hope to be back next summer and many summers after that!
August: We had the best time and the grandma's did too. Julia and Noelle loved swimming, painting, and making s'mores. We hate to leave and are already talking about next year:) You have a great place and your family has been so nice which is one of the many reasons we plan to come back for stay #3.
Thanks so much! We love it here!
June: All of us in Cabin 9 had a great time! Weather was awesome! Kids had a blast doing all the activities you had for them! Us women had a blast making all the beautiful jewelry!
Thank you for the GREAT week!
September: We really enjoyed the pontoon ride, and learning the lake's history. This has been our best up North experience yet. We loved the cabin, and will have to make more time next year for the art studio.
August: Our stay was the perfect way to end the summer before school starts. It was nice that there were several kids of the same age here this week - they had a blast playing together. Thank you for the pontoon ride and the info on the lake. I think it helped Randy in his fishing efforts the next year.
August: I caught my first bass on Little Mary! It was so much fun reeling it in an knowing that it was all me!
Wanted to leave you a note to say how grateful we were for your amazing place. Your both are wonderful people and you are doing a spectacular job with this place.
Thank you for the nice weekend of ice fishing and relaxing in your wonderful cabin. We always enjoy our time at your resort and we always feel like home with your wonderful hospitality. We hope to be back soon at our home away from home.
Talk about quiet - not like the city. Full moon over the lake; priceless.
Our family is always happy with anticipation to arrive and so sad to leave.
What a beautiful resort you have. We loved the clean quiet cabin and all of your hospitality.
Thank you for your part in making our reunion such a wonderful time. Your hospitality, helpfulness and facilities were very much appreciated and make for a perfect place to meet, relax and have fun together. I have already passed your name on to other friends with high recommendations.
PS I really like my ceramic fish!
Wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed my stay at your resort. Everything was just perfect. Thank you for making our stay a pleasant memory.
I was going to write you to let you know how much we loved your place, despite the weather!!! It's all about relationships in the family, right?!! We truly had a wonderful time, and all of the kids said they would love to head back to the same cabin we stayed in. Thanks for your hospitality!
We just wanted to say THANK YOU for the wonderful week in cabin 5 last week! Emily and Molly kept saying “I miss our cabin!” yesterday. They really had fun. We’re all looking forward to next year!
I would like to THANK YOU for an exceptionally fantastic week we had at your resort! We hope to get the chance to do it again!! Hope this finds you and your family well. It was an honor to get to know you and your family. You guys are pretty special people. Continued blessings on your resort!!
It has been nice to be able to build on the relationships we have come to enjoy at your resort, and your hospitality and family atmosphere just helps bond the friendships formed and expanded upon year after year. There are really some great people there during “our” week, as I assume is the case each week, and you guys are the ones that make that happen. You do a good job of picking folks that fit in with most of your guests. It was another great week to help unwind from our everyday life and get a chance to spend a week together as a family as well as spend some quality time with our extended “Minnesota Family.”
Thanks for everything, and if you ever need a reference for a prospect, be sure to use us.
We are now booking our 16th summer on Lake Mary. Give us a call; we are look forward to meeting you and sharing our unique resort. As resort owners we truly love what we do! We are ready to help you create memories and traditions. You truly become family at Westridge Shores Resort.
