For nearly a century, the lodge has been a central gathering place for all ages. Built in 1919, the original lodge operated as both a residence and bait/ boat shop. Soon after, fisherman wanting to spend the night after a long day on the ice were offered sleeping bags, blankets and a space on the lodge floor. Seeing the need for additional lodging, cabins began to crop up and those traveling by horse and wagon across the Indian trail would stop to water their horses, eat lunch and rest along the shores of White Earth Lake. The tiny resort was named was named Aun-way-be-win, in Ojibwe, “a place for rest.”
Although the resort has changed hands throughout the years, the vision has remained the same: providing comfortable lodging and food to those passing through. Today, under the management of four area women, New Horizon Resort is rekindling the tradition once set forth by those first fisherman looking for rest after a day on the lake. After nearly 100 years, families still flock to the resort to build on memories of times passed.
