Activities in the WINTER: A favorite time of year for this cabin. The cabin is on a great hill to sled on, you can watch the family sled while you have a hot cider! We feed the deer in the winter so throughout the day you may see the deer come right close to the cabin to feed! Snowmobilers can hop on the snowmobile trail right from our property. There is also a great ice fishing lake one mile down the road- Moose Lake. So bring your portable ice houses or wheel houses! Play the provided board games, read a book, play cards, and enjoy the snowy landscape and cross fingers for a fresh snowfall so you can wake up to a winter wonderland. The perfect cozy getaway to nestle in for a memory making family getaway that is flat out, out of the ordinary. The deer visiting alone is the coolest thing to see:)))) A pair of snowshoes are provided at the cabin too. ATVers are also welcome and can enjoy our trails on site or travel 25 minutes to four wheel the epic ATV trails south of Zerkel in White Earth. Guests may not use the wood stoves without signing a contract through the Black Lantern. Ask about turkey hunting and muzzleloader opportunities too!
