Fall in love with Winter


Nothing like a winter woods walk. Each cabin also has 2 pairs of snowshoes so you can go make tracks too... along with all the other forest animals!


There is snowmobile trail access right on the property for you to bring the sleds and enjoy. The map is through the Clearwater County Trailblazers. 


We furnish two snow sleds per cabin. They are fun to tow little ones down the forest trails and there are a couple hills here and there on the property:)

Warm Up!

Each cabin we stock with apple cider and cocoa along with boardgames to play and movies to watch. There are also Decorations if you are feeling festive!

Ice Fishing

We are on Berg Lake, best for fishing with a portable or on a bucket! Moose Lake is 1 mile away and can handle a wheel house. So bring your gear and try your luck!
