Opportunity and timing are behind the reasons Mike Fink decided to become a new owner of Eagle’s Nest Resort in December, 2015. With an extensive background in cooking, and food management, it was a move too hard to resist. Mainly, with his parents living in Duluth and his dad near retirement, he decided it would be a great place for him and his wife, Becky, to raise their children in a surrounding full of wildlife, while being able to spend more time with his parents. It was a natural fit!
For the resort, the goal in mind has always been to preserve the glory days of Eagle’s Nest when couples and families made it their priority to spend time together in its spectacular lakefront setting. Its serenity seems to bring people together whether staying in the cabins, or enjoying dining and entertainment in its family restaurant, and hometown bar.
Keeping the prices value-oriented for its food, drink, watercraft and dock rentals, and cabin reservations, has always been important right from the beginning under his ownership. During the first three years improvements had been made in the cabins including electric, water, and shower updates, window replacements, and replacement of furniture. New docks have been installed on the resort waterfront.
Eagle’s Nest Resort has continued to contribute to major onsite events such as the annual Antique Snowmobile Run, and Duluth Wednesday Nighters car show. It brought back Golf on Ice happening each spring. In addition, many other events and special promotions have been added to its docket. Check back often to stay on top of all the details!
