Cedar Valley Resort – Open Year Round

Our cabin doors are open and our family is ready for you to join us here at the resort!

Cedar Valley Resort offers 11 beautiful log sided cabins built between 2001 and 2014 that accommodate from 2 to 38 guests. With 1400 sq. ft. to over 5600 sq. ft. of living space, our cabins are perfect for your next vacation.

With the Root River State Bike Trail winding through our Southeastern Minnesota resort and the Root River running alongside, there is no better access to biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, tubing and fishing. Our resort is located an hour South East of Rochester, MN and just 5 minutes from Lanesboro, MN (one of America’s Prettiest Towns according to Forbes Traveler).

Enjoy the unspoiled natural splendor of the Root River Valley right from your cabin porch. The wildlife is abundant with bald eagles, deer, wild turkey, song birds and in the evening, you will hear the owls hoot and the coyotes howl.

First-class resort in every way. The rooms, the family-friendly activities, the grounds, and most of all, the friendly and helpful owners. So many thoughtful touches to make your time restful and pleasant. You can be as active or as relaxed as you choose.

Great cabin resort in southeast Minnesota on the root river trail with many activities for all seasons. The cabins are clean with plenty of space and full kitchens. It is close to lanesboro if your group needs to go out and eat.

One of our employees pointed out this monarch that decided to spin its pad of silk and hang out at one of our cabins. Any guesses on where it is? And here’s some things I didn’t know… 🤓 A monarch caterpillar increases roughly 2,000 times its original mass after hatching

Who’s going to check the Big Timber to see if there’s a pot of gold inside? 🌈💰
