We are down to a foot of snow in the woods with some ski trails still groomed. They say we may get some snow this coming week so the dog sledding should continue until late March.

Thoughts are turning to spring and the upcoming April packages, followed by the fishing season opener on May 9th for walleye, northern, smallmouth bass and lake trout (on the border lakes).

One of the real treats in our spring fishing is with the lake trout. They are native to Gunflint and are fairly easy to catch. We troll along the rocky shores in shallow water during May and early June, and most of them run 3 to 8 pounds. Our staff will fillet them for you, or you are welcome to have our kitchen prepare them for your dinner.

Thank you for making my dads 90th birthday absolutly fantastic! The staff helped make everything happen effortlessly with a personal touch. My dad is still raving about the hospitality at Gunflint Lodge--from our lake home and cabin to the grounds to the food, you created a perfect and memorable 90th birthday for my dad and our family. Thanks again. We look forward to seeing you soon. Feb 2014 The Swanson family

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
