Where you’ll be

Walker, Minnesota, United States

Walker is a bustling small town on Leech Lake. It draws many for its shopping, restaurants, and numerous outdoor activities. We have a pretty laid back up north feel here, where we hope you feel the Minnesota Nice. From The Hideaway, guests are within walking distance to so many things we love as locals: Portage Brewery & Wine Down wine bar, Walker Farmer's Market, Von Hanson's Meats, The Piggy BBQ and small local shops like the Peculiar Painter & The Art & Antique Mall of Walker, paved trail systems, and several spots to enjoy beautiful Leech Lake. The local grocery store & Green Scene Organic Market are about a 5-10 minute walk if you'd like to prepare your own meals.

If you'd like to take a day trip, we recommend visiting Itasca State Park to see the headwaters of the Mississippi (35 miles). Or for a closer choice, hike, sled or cross country ski at Shingobee Recreation Area (5 miles)
