Photo Number 1666

This is a photo from one of my husbands cousins.

Mn Resort

Redbird and Blue Jay Cottages at Clark Gables Resort on Long Lake   Detroit Lakes Minn

I did a little research and found this resort’s address on Long Lake Road.  I have the photo ready to drop in the mail.  This photo is most likely from the 1950’s.  I love the window boxes and look at that clothesline all ready for wet swimsuits and towels.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. It's a great photo.

  2. I would love to hear the story about the naming of this resort! mentions it a long with a LOT of other Minnesota lakeside cabins and resorts.

  3. Wonderful picture! I bet it was a wonderful place to spend summer week-ends.

  4. Mailing the photo this morning, I asked them how the resort got it's name. We will see if they reply:)

  5. I don't know if you look at this anymore but I am interested if you found any more information out about this place. Apparently one of my old cousins owned it in the 60s and I'd love to know more if you found out more!

    1. Hi Ryan, I never heard a thing from the people that I sent the postcard to...not even a thank you:(
