Only in the Midwest will you find such an unexpected diamond in the rough.

Chestnut Mountain has 100 slopeside rooms in close proximity to an indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The Sunset Grille restaurant serves up fine dining favorites and The Summit Food & Spirits offers the area's finest contemporary cuisine with a modern flair. The Summit serves an array of handcrafted beers & wines and is a great place to catch any game on one of it's 12 TVs. If you are just looking for a quick bite to eat. Stop by our Mountain Top Cafe which is conveniently located just off the bunny slope.
During summertime there is no shortage of activities for the young or young at heart. Ride the Alpine Slide or cruise the river on a Mississippi Explorer Cruise. Bike or hike trails showcasing our area's unique geologic beauty. Or test your short game on our 18-hole mini golf course. Whatever it is you want to do on a mountain, chances are you can do it here.
