15 minutes from Itasca State Park and Bemidji. Private forest getaway tucked far from any other lodging.

CABIN LODGING: Our cabin is a gem, built on stilts in the canopy of the pines like a tree house. Custom carpentry and bathroom design. This beauty sleeps up to 6, has a fireplace, full kitchen stocked with all the cooking and eating utensils you need, we provide all linens, a personal firepit area enclosed in boulders, free firewood, free use of our boats, a BBQ, flexible check in/out times, and so many other finishing touches like coffee, birdseed, toiletry basket, books, movies, etc. Open in the dead of Winter too, with snowmobile trail access. ATVs & pets are welcome at our resort.

RV/TENT SITES: Each site has its own view (not just your neighboring RV), is set on huge sites with water and electric hookup (50/30/20 amp). There is a firepit, picnic table, free firewood, free RV dump, and free boat use with your stay. We have primitive sites by the lake too. ATV's & pets welcome.

OUTDOOR VENUE: We terraced a huge hill and wrapped it in boulder walls, put a gorgeous staircase up the center of the hill and a pavilion at the top overlooking a stage and bonfire/BBQ area. There is plenty of power for bands to hook up, we made sure of that:) We'll build bonfires for parties/fests, many tables available, room for vendors and tents too.
