Winter has arrived on the Gunflint and we have a lot of snow on the ground. All ski trails are groomed. All the lakes have frozen over with quite a bit of ice so people have started to head out for fishing or exploring (you should still check with someone regarding the ice conditions of the specific lake you wish to play on). The deer are coming in looking for their handouts and of course we have the normal flocks of birds that winter in our boreal forest.

We've been blessed with several inches of white fluffy snow over this past weekend and have been busy grooming the ski trails. Ice fisherman had pleasant temperatures for the opening of Lake Trout on Gunflint lake. Fishing report: "fishing was awesome!" Catching report: "we caught our limit for dinner".

Sue and I invite you to relax in one of our lakeside fireplace cabins, feast in our dining rooms, and play in our outdoors. A vacation to the Gunflint highlands of northern Minnesota is unique. The area is remote and pristine, where we have more wildlife (deer, moose, eagles, beaver, etc.) than people. Our northwoods, just 6 hours north of the Twin Cities, continues to exist in a time of urban sprawl and expanding suburbs. Words alone cannot do it justice and the only way to understand the Gunflint area is by experiencing it first hand. Here at Gunflint moose encounters and deer sightings are more common than a visit by your neighbors.
It would be our pleasure to welcome you and your family to our resort, which we hope will become your new "home in the woods".

Bruce and Sue Kerfoot, your hosts
