Fall: October 19-22, 2017

Your children thru 12 stay free during their school break

This late fall weekend in the north woods is a great opportunity to bring the kids out for a little adventure. Why not take a short excursion away since they’ve got a few days off school? You can all enjoy…

  • Hiking in the forest on a trail of crunchy leaves.
  • Looking for moose, fox, eagles and other local forest critters
  • Joining our naturalist on an evening wolf howling expedition.
  • Or sitting around the fireplace in your cabin with a bowl of popcorn and a board game.

Your cabin is equipped with a full kitchen, making it easy to prepare your breakfasts and lunches. Then your whole family is invited to the Lodge for dinner each night (included in your package).

In the evenings your cabin’s fireplace will feel cozy after the chill of the night air. A good book, a family game, a puzzle…a restful way to end each activity-filled day.
