This postcard shows the impressive rustic lobby of Breezy Point Lodge, Brainerd, Minnesota. The postcard is ©1955 by L .L. Cook Co. and was mailed from Pequot Lakes in July, 1956. I love rustic interiors like this. Both the picture and message make me wish I were there. It's too bad that the lodge burned down in 1959.
7-10-56At that time Breezy Point was Minnesota's largest summer resort with 370 acres, 70 rooms in the Main Lodge, and 65 cottages. There were floor shows, dinner music, and dancing nightly. According to the book Minnesota Vacation Days, they offered a special five-day rate for the July 4th holiday in 1955 for $80 per person that included all meals, dancing, and entertainment.
This is really a beautiful place & what food--we will gain 10 lbs. each this week. Weather has been perfect and we are enjoying every minute. Rose is lost with no cooking & dishes so she got sunburned when I was fishing today. No Fish!
