Today’s Resort

The History

East Silent Lake Resort is one of Minnesota’s most historic resorts. It was established in 1915 by Charles Bublitz, a pastor, who wanted to provide a summer retreat where his friends and family could make memories. Today, over 100 years later, East Silent Lake Resort is committed to preserving this timeless family tradition.

This is the earliest picture of Silent Lake in 1915. The photo was taken with daughter Louise's box camera which she received as a high school graduation gift in 1914.

The Lodge

In 2015, on our 100th Anniversary, we began construction on the new lodge. The lodge was designed with families in mind. It serves as the center of hospitality with a front desk for reservations, check-in/check-out, and assistance with special arrangements and requests. In addition, the new lodge also includes a snack bar, game/recreation areas, guest laundry, indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, meeting rooms, store and gift shop and a fitness center.
