Private acreage tucked away in a rolling pine forest with a tiny lake for fishing or just enjoying the canoe or kayaks. Gorgeous natural boulder landscaping decorates our trail sides. Mossy forest floors, and too many animals lurking to count. The layout of the property has been designed specifically to seclude guests so they can enjoy themselves without worrying about disturbing anyone.
NO Pets & NO Smoking.
Our secret cabin "Eleanor" treats people all year long. Built on stilts like a tree house, and in the pines, it has a private campfire area wrapped in a boulder wall. The balcony keeps you close to nature and the fireplace keeps you warm. And AC to keep you cool. There is a Queen bed in the bedroom and a bunkbed in the open living space facing the many windows into the trees. So comfy and cozy, a beautiful cabin to appreciate the simple things. The cabin is stocked well with majority of the goods to keep your outing stress free, such as baking and cooking bowls, pans, utensils and all eating utensils. A full kitchen: coffee maker/ice cube trays/micro/stove/fridge/toaster/blender. All the linens, comforter/bedding and bathroom/kitchen towels are fresh and provided by us. The bathroom is custom made and ADA compliant as well as the layout of the rest of the cabin, yet there is a slight slope outside to get to the front door. During the Winter we outfit with two sets of snow shoes to explore and snowmobiles are welcome as the trail cuts through the resort. Take a walk through the woods to the little lake to relax. There is no other lodging in sight from the cabin so there is not a care to disturb anyone. We encourage people to bring golf carts or ATV's to get around the big property. There are GREAT ATV trails 25 minutes away in White Earth.
Free: Boat use, we have kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats, and enough random fishing gear to get you on the lake for awhile! Firewood is $3.00/bundle, do not bring your own. Watch the "FireYes/No" sign across from guest check in as it changes from morning to night. You must be present at the fire at ALL times and please put out when not using. Thank You.
IMPORTANT: Our hallmark is accommodating to each guest's different requests or wishes. We pride ourselves in catering to our guests, so just ask and if we can pull something off we will sure try. . . If you want a 10 foot tall bonfire, a wedding proposal... :)
