Thanks for your interest in Minnesota's most beautiful lake! Life of Riley Resort is the only resort located on Norwegian Bay -- a super fishing area and one guaranteed to give you that wilderness sensation of being in "God's Country."

Our resort has a "down home" atmosphere -- informal and friendly -with nothing fancy or posh. We specialize in good fishing, good food and good times. Service here is more than a slogan. Our goal is to make YOUR stay the best vacation ever.
Many guests have been complimentary in the past regarding the service they received at the Life of Riley. We received "rave reviews" about our food service last summer. Most first-time visitors are awed by our location. We are always pleased to hear the comments about the improvements from our "oldtimers" and we are especially pleased with our guests' fishing successes. Compliments regarding the cabin cleanliness, condition of fishing equipment and the overall good grades on groundskeeping were most welcome.

Singularly or in total, the foregoing may be the answer to "Why select the Life of Riley as your vacation spot?" We do strive diligently in all af those areas and by comparison, we do manage to excel. But more importantly, we at the Life of Riley sense a responsibility to assist our guests in their quest for a relaxed, fun-filled, worry-free, "come as you are -- do as you please" vacation.
As a result of this sense of responsibility to our guests, you will find friendly folks who are genuinely interested in our guests and their vacation objectives -- whether fishing, boating, family fun or just plain loafing.

If you are searching for "Just the right place" for your next vacation, we certainly want to extend our invitation for you to try the Life of Riley. You have our personal assurance that we will do our best ti assist you and welcome you. Our motivation is simple -- We wnat you to come back!
