Meet Your Hosts


  We are Larry and Patty Becker, owners and operators of Southwood Resort. Patty and I both
up in military families and spent 20 years in the military ourselves. We have traveled
  the world   and 
been to nearly every country in Europe and South East Asia. We have found
  no place that we felt as much at home than Grand Rapids, MN. With its small town
  atmosphere, friendly people, and natural beauty, it was easy to  fall in love with the area.  We
  have found that place and time in our lives settle down and enjoy all that we have been 
blessed with. With our two children an eight grandchildren we have resurrected Southwood to
be a place we are proud to share. As a small family resort, it is our mission to create that small family atmosphere for all of our guests. We invite you to become a member of our Southwood Resort Family.
