Naytahwaush, MN -- One local resort is celebrating a monumental milestone this weekend. Pinehurst Resort near Naytahwaush will celebrate 100 years of being a local destination and family getaway tradition. For the LaVoy family who has owned the resort for nearly 60 years, running the resort has been a family tradition in itself. Current owner Greg Lavoy talks about his family involvement with Pinehurst.

The one constant that hasn’t changed in the last century is the iconic round room, although it has been updated. Lavoy says he’s proud to have been able to use local contractors and businesses during the restoration and updating process at Pinehurst.
