Thanksgiving Weekend
Nov 26-30, 2014

Gunflint Lodge in northern Minnesota


Back in 1621 our Pilgrim ancestors started the tradition of a Thanksgiving celebration for all the good things that had happened in their lives. They invited their Native American neighbors to join them in a feast of venison, fish, corn, nuts, and berries. When our family came to Gunflint in 1928 we continued this tradition and invited all our neighbors to join us—the Plummers and Cooks (our native American neighbors), trappers, guides, loggers and anyone else who was
around.

As we continue to offer our old fashioned Thanksgiving in the Northwoods, it is the perfect opportunity to relax and remember just what it's all about, and to share this with new friends in the northwoods. Enjoy the outdoors hiking or tramping around looking for moose and deer; play a few board games in front of your fireplace; and step out at night to check if the northern lights are out or the wolves are howling. Then we add in your meals including a huge Thanksgiving Buffet which includes a haunch of buffalo, double smoked ham, slow roasted whole turkey, plus all kinds of side dishes and desserts. There are always homemade cookies, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate at the lodge all day.

Includes: 4 night's accommodations, all meals, all guided naturalist activities, and a variety of hiking trails.
