Welcome to Island View Resort on Nest Lake in Spicer, Minnesota!
Come enjoy serenity by the lake! Island View Resort is only 2 hours from the Twin Cities. While much of the city fights the traffic northward, why not head west? Kandiyohi County and the Spicer area provide the same pristine forests and wildlife — including the beautiful sounds of the cherished Common Loon!

We have 13 cabins, which allows something for everyone! The sizes and layouts of the cabins at Island View Resort are unique. Cabins are on land rising in a bowl shape from the water’s edge and provide ample living space for your activities. All of the cabins have full kitchens, bathrooms, ceiling fans in each bedroom and living room, spacious bedrooms and decks. Each cabin has its own campfire ring.

Over 960 acres, Nest Lake has an interesting variety of fishing water with many bays and points protected from the winds by a high shore line. It has depths to 42 feet and many shallow weed beds, heavy with vegetation, making good spawning areas that maintain the high quality of fishing enjoyed here. Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass, Sunfish, Crappies, Perch and Bullheads make up the fish population. Nest Lake is fed by the Little Crow River and drains into Green Lake at an outlet dam. Nest Lake has two small islands, the larger about a couple of acres.
