Discover the Charm of Nisswa: A Family Legacy at Upper Cullen Resort

Welcome to Nisswa, a gem nestled in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes Area, where the spirit of community thrives amidst the tranquil beauty of nature. Among the plethora of small towns in Minnesota, Nisswa stands out, and at its heart lies Upper Cullen Resort, a beloved family-owned and operated haven cherished by generations.

As the sun rises over the shimmering waters of Upper Cullen Lake, casting its golden hue on the surrounding forests, it’s easy to see why families return to our resort year after year. Just like many who have left and returned to Nisswa, our guests find themselves drawn back to the embrace of this special place.

Established in the wake of a historic railroad route change, Upper Cullen Resort found its roots in the allure of the Brainerd Lakes region. The railroad’s twist of fate diverted travelers to our doorstep, unveiling the natural wonders of the area – pristine lakes, lush forests, and boundless adventure.

Summer breathes life into Nisswa, and at Upper Cullen Resort, the warmth of the season is palpable. Families embark on outdoor escapades, from fishing and boating to hiking along scenic trails. Our resort buzzes with laughter as children splash in the lake, while parents unwind on the shores, basking in the serenity of the surroundings.

But Nisswa isn’t just a summer retreat; it’s a year-round destination pulsating with energy and excitement. The town’s vibrant calendar boasts over 45 days of festivities annually, each celebration adding to the tapestry of community spirit. From quirky events like turtle racing to cultural showcases of Swedish dancing, there’s always something to delight in.

At Upper Cullen Resort, we take pride in being woven into the fabric of Nisswa’s rich tapestry. Our guests aren’t just visitors; they become part of our extended family, sharing in the traditions and memories that make our resort a cherished retreat.

As the Mayor of Nisswa, Fred Heiman, aptly describes, “It’s a special town. You leave for a little bit but you want to come back.” This sentiment echoes through the generations of families who have made Upper Cullen Resort their home away from home, returning time and again to create new memories and relive cherished moments.

Whether it’s the allure of Nisswa’s natural beauty, the warmth of its welcoming community, or the timeless traditions that define our resort, one thing remains constant – Upper Cullen Resort is more than just a destination; it’s a legacy of love, laughter, and everlasting memories, waiting to be shared with you.
