Meet our family!
Joe, David, Christina, Tyler, and Caleb
As owners of Riverside Resort, we are excited for the adventure which lies in front of us. We look forward to being able to serve our guests as a family. It is our goal for you to enjoy your vacation at Riverside, spend quality time with family and friends, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Riverside Resort now is approaching 100 years of continuous family operation. We now offer multiple activities throughout the week for both children and adults. One unique perk we now offer is that resort guests are privileged to use the indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, and sauna facilities at Riverside Inn (hotel) in Cold Spring (7 miles from resort and accessible by either car or BOAT). While much has changed throughout the years, Riverside Resort continues to provide an affordable family-oriented, fishing and vacation destination. Thank you for vacationing with us and we look forward to serving you and your family!
As part of our personalized Memory Making service, guests at Riverside Resort enjoy Sunday gospel singers and performers, scheduled volleyball games, resort picnics, marshmallow roasts, weekly coloring contests, and visits from Riverside Rabbit, the life-size resort mascot. Near the wooded area Riverside Rabbit calls home, guests will also find campground facilities, a safe, sandy swimming beach with a water slide, a basketball court, horseshoes, a game room, ping-pong, a volleyball court, a large playground area, and a great variety of fishing on the Horseshoe Chain of Lakes.
A picturesque view of the Horseshoe Chain of Lakes awaits guests in each of our seventeen cottages and two vacation home rentals. Each unit is immaculate and features many comforts of home including complete kitchens, full baths, comfortable bedrooms, and a living room area with color cable television. These deluxe units, including two wheelchair accessible lakeshore units, also feature air-conditioning, sliding glass patio doors, and spacious sundecks.
Our Central Minnesota location provides close access to quaint country shops, fine dining, shopping malls, movie theatres, golfing, bowling, roller-skating, horseback riding, tennis courts, and much more!
Whether you choose to stay at Riverside Resort, Riverside Inn, Serenity Shores, Pine Valley, or our tropical vacation paradise, Riverside Aloha, you will find each property endorses a wholesome and welcoming atmosphere and the long-standing trademarks of friendliness, cleanliness, and personalized service. Each unique vacation retreat is a safe haven where guests can depend upon our promise to first and foremost… serve God and His people.
Whether you dream of a vacation full of sport and activity, or one of restful relaxation, a Riverside Resort retreat with family and friends is your passport to cherished vacation memories. With eighty-six years of Memory Making experience, you can count on us to provide you with a myriad of fun times and cherish memories that will last a lifetime! Please don’t delay. . . your 2013 vacation dreams are only a mouse click or a phone call away!
Yours for a picture-perfect vacation, Joe and Christina DeRose
