Escape the State Fair

Who needs the Great Minnesota Get Together? How about a Great Minnesota Get-Away?!!

August 25-29, 2019

Come and enjoy the peaceful Northwoods as summer winds down and the family vacationers are returning home, getting ready for school and with many heading to the State Fair to see what is new to eat off a stick. Far from the madding crowds, up here we are enjoying colorful evening sunsets, the calling loons, and the rustle of the wind in the trees. Instead of Midway rides, you’ll soar through the trees in the Towering Pines Canopy Tour zipline. Instead of livestock judging, you’ll take to the trails on the back of one of our trusty horses. And each night we will offer complimentary appetizers of some of the best foods Minnesota has to offer.

This package includes accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin or rustic Voyageur Cabin, all meals (including packed lunches if you want to be out for the day), use of canoes and kayaks on the waterfront, and all our guided Naturalist programs. Better than a livestock show or fair ride, you’ll also enjoy a one hour horseback ride and a thrilling trip on the Towering Pines Canopy Tour zip line (maximum weight is 240# per person for horseback riding and the Canopy Tour). (One ride on each, per person, per stay, please)
