Howling with the Wolves
April 10-12
A unique wilderness experience you'll not forget

Here in the north woods we're the newcomers. The natives are the wolves, moose, deer, bear and other forest critters.

A healthy pack of timber wolves lives nearby. Sometimes we can get them to howl back to us come evening, when the stars are shining or the moon is up. A “ call of the wild ” that never gets old.

We'll head out for wolf-calling expeditions both Friday and Saturday evenings. Our trek will take us along one of our trails to an overlook where our head naturalist will start the howling. You'll be able to raise your voice yourself if you like, and see if you can entice the pack to answer.

In addition, on Saturday our naturalist will lead a ski or hiking trip out into an area inhabited by the wolves. You'll look for their tracks, scat and any remains of recent deer kills.

This special Howling With the Wolves weekend includes: two or three nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin, all meals, wolf calling expeditions, and ski and snowshoe rentals. Taxes and ski passes are additional.

Military Veterans Special
April 12-17
This package is more than 60% off our regular rates.  We would like to thank you — our soldiers — for your service these last few years in a theatre of combat. We invite all veterans, plus your spouse and children, to join us for a five-night vacation as our thank you for your commitment to our country.

It's one small way we can show our appreciation for the service you've give us.

We'll have a comfortable cabin waiting for you, complete with fireplace, sauna, one-to-five bedrooms (with one-to-four bathrooms), and free DVDs from the stash in the lodge.

Your hot breakfasts are provided in our lodge each morning. The rest of your meals can be prepared in the comfort of your own cabin, which features a full kitchen.

You can go hiking, skiing and snowshoeing. You can feed the deer and song birds with the corn and sunflower seeds we provide. Bring a board game or a book to read while relaxing by the fireplace, and soak up the peace and quiet of the north woods.

This Military Veterans' Special Package includes: five nights accommodations, a full breakfast each day, cross country skis and snowshoes, guided naturalist activities, and complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate plus home-baked cookies all day in the main lodge.

Red Neck Weekend
May 1-3
Your red bandanna is your ticket to all kinds of goodies

It's time to kick up your heels and have fun for the weekend. Bring along your red bandanna and you'll get all kinds of extra perks:

•  Wearing your bandanna will get you one free beer each day.

•  It'll mean adding your name to our drawing for a free weekend later in the year.

•  It'll get you a scrumptious dessert with your dinner - free .

•  Best of all — it'll get you a free boat and motor for one day.

Who knew being a “red neck” could land you so many freebies?

In early May the forest is just awakening from a long winter. There's not a lot going on up here yet, so things will be on the quiet side.

You'll be reminded that there are more wild animals in our north woods than people (we're the visitors). It's not unusual for hikers on our trails to see bald eagles, moose, deer, beaver, fox and other locals.

The trees aren't leafed out yet, so your views in the forest will be awesome. And the bugs aren't out yet either!

You'll have a bird feeder right outside your cabin picture window (we provide you with sunflower seeds). It's always a treat to have that first-hand look at the many birds that call the boreal forest home.

This Red Neck Weekend includes: accommodations with fireplace, all meals, canoes, hiking trails, and all our guided naturalist activities. Plus the extras IF you keep your red bandanna around your neck.  $198.00 per person for the entire package.

Mothers Day/Fishing Opening Weekend
May 8-10
Moms are FREE this weekend!

We've combined two of spring's highlights for you: Moms, you'll receive special attention and a little pampering. Dads, you get to go fishing.

Does it get any better?

We'll have a lakeside fireplace cabin for you with a king-sized bed, full bath and a kitchen. All your meals are included for the weekend — so no cooking or cleaning up. We'll pack you a lunch-to-go for Saturday if you want to be out fishing all day.

Each night we'll bring an appetizer and wine to your cabin for you to enjoy by your fireplace. You can come up to the lodge for your dinner when you're ready.

If you Moms want to be out in the boat fishing you're very welcome, of course. If you'd rather relax in your cozy cabin in front of a fire and read, that's great too. We've got some of the most scenic hiking in the area right out our back door, and several naturalist activities to choose from as well. Moms could also take advantage of a relaxing massage for an extra relaxing moment.

Included in this package is a boat with backrest seats, a 20hp electric-start motor, all gas, live bait, landing net and minnow bucket. We'll even handle your fish filleting for you, and keep your catch in our freezer until you're ready to head home.

We'll go over a lake map to help get you focused on where the fish are and what they're likely to be biting on. Lake trout, walleye, smallmouth bass and northern pike are your likely quarry.Gunflint Lake is one Minnesota's best for lake trout. We troll for them in shallow water in May, with most fish running from 3 to 10 pounds.

The Mother's Day & Fishing Opener Weekend includes: two nights accommodations, all meals, boat and motor, gas, live bait, fish filleting and freezing, and appetizers and wine each evening. It also includes all naturalist activities. $349.00 per adult.  All moms are free.

Massages and horseback riding is available at an additional charge
