Looking for a resort in Minnesota or Wisconsin

I'm looking for a resort in Minnesota or Wisconsin. It needs to have air conditioning, room for two adults and two teenagers, and allow dogs. - Cathy, Golden Valley, Minn.

I can't really pick out one lake resort for you because there are more than 1,000 and I don't know your tastes.

The easiest way to narrow it down is to pick an area.

For Minnesota, see The Minnesota resort of your dreams.

For Wisconsin, see The Wisconsin resort of your dreams.

When you have an idea of where you'd like to go, go to the resort listings for that region or that state and choose filters, including "pets welcome.''

There isn't usually a filter for air conditioning, so you'll probably have to pick one of the upscale-type resorts instead of a classic cabin resort, though some of them do have newer cabins with air conditioning.

For general advice on picking the right resort for you, see One in 1,000.
