RomanticGetaways, Honeymoons, Elopement Package

Fall color is wrapped up and the Indian Summer days have brought cooler temperatures--great for hiking, looking for moose, encountering a grouse family or some red squirrels, and enjoying tramping in the crispy leaves that have fallen.

We have had enough rain that the waterfalls are flowing nicely and provide you with a delightful photo opportunity or a place to enjoy a picnic lunch.

The migrating birds are heading south and now our focus turns to the birds of the boreal forest--our chickadees, woodpeckers, nuthatch, owls, and jays. They are become much more interested in our bird feeders, as their native foods become a bit more scarce, and they are taking the easiest route to a full stomach.

Towering Pines Canopy Tour

Closed for the season presently--reopening in mid May

This is one of our most fun activities. Each trip is a 2+ hour experience, led by two sky guides. You soar between huge white pine trees, from platform to platform. This activity does not require skill or physical strength, just a twinkle in your eye and something to mark off your bucket list.

The views are awesome, with something new at each station. You overlook Lonely Lake, the high cliffs, a big cedar swamp, Gunflint Lake and the route of the Voyageurs, and the Canadian hills to the north. For more detailed Canopy Tour info.

As we host honeymoons and weddings, we have a variety of packages for your consideration

Honeymoon at Gunflint Lodge- a Minnesota resort


May 30, 2014

Our stay here was better than we thought it would be. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, especially Cassi, Missy, April, Vince, Mandy, Elise, Dave, Steve and Mike. Thank you guys so much. We will be coming back again.

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
