For Immediate Release
June 6, 2024
One of the Northwest Angle’s premier resorts on beautiful Flag Island, located in the northernmost portion of Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods, has been purchased and is open for business!
Cyrus Resort, owned by Justin and Tanya Ferguson, is a longstanding, family-owned resort on the south end of Lake of the Woods with a stellar reputation for modern accommodations, strong customer service, successful fishing guides and delicious meals. The Ferguson’s are bringing that same level of care and expertise to the north end of the lake with the newly named Cyrus’s Flag Island Resort.
“Tanya, myself and our family are super excited to bring the same level of excellence of Cyrus Resort on the south end of Lake of the Woods to the new Cyrus’s Flag Island Resort up at the NW Angle. As a family-owned resort, we believe in forming long term relationships with our valued guests and take pride in extending that same culture to our Flag Island location,” explains Justin Ferguson.
“The NW Angle is a premier destination for fishing, exploring, birding and simply the sheer beauty of the 14,552 islands that begin in this area,” explains Joe Henry, Executive Director, Lake of the Woods Tourism.
“From a fishing perspective, this area is tough to beat throughout both the open water and ice fishing seasons. It has earned a world class reputation and is stellar for walleyes, muskies, smallmouth bass, crappies and pike, just to name a few. Having the Fergusons invest in the Angle and make this kind of commitment with Cyrus’s Flag Island Resort makes the entire area stronger. I know the NW Angle resorts and the entire community are excited to welcome them to the Angle.”
Cyrus’s Flag Island Resort offers a variety of accommodations, which includes 25 cabins with amenities, hotel rooms and a full-service bar and restaurant. Each cabin offers that NW Angle ambience with a special view.
The resort has an extensive protected harbor with new docks and plenty of space for both private boats and charter boats located right in the middle of a fishing paradise.
The resort is open for business and taking reservations. The new website is The resort can also be reached via email at or by phone at 218-223-4000.
