The upper level boasts a deck that wraps around the entire cabin overlooking a vast area to spot wildlife and stars. There are 2 queen beds, a little love seat, TV and another custom bathroom with a double headed shower. Catch the sunset over the pines, or the view with a cup of coffee on the deck. In the Winter you can see the sledding hill right from the kitchen as the family cruises by in snow sleds and wake up to deer feeding at the base of the hill. The center level has a fantastic full kitchen lined with windows and big dining table to bring everyone together. Stocked with all eating and cooking utensils, walking & ATV trails, a little lake to paddle around on in our paddled boats, and beautiful grounds (200 acres) to roam around on. Activities in the WINTER: My absolute, favorite time of year for this cabin. The cabin is right next to 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! They are amazing to watch! The snowmobile trail is a quick quarter mile ride away, you do not have to trailer your sleds. There is also a great ice fishing lake one mile down the road- Moose Lake. So bring your portables or wheel houses! Light up the wood fire stove and play the provided board games, read a book and enjoy the sunsets, 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:)))) This is also GREAT for snowmobilers to stay right on the trail and gather at night for a big meal. 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. SUMMER VISITS: Explore these big woods and many trails and discover vast amounts of flora and fauna. Hunt mushrooms in the spring, rent a golf cart to cruise around on and catch a breeze. Watch stunning sunsets from the deck, picnic or have a family reunion potluck at the pavilion. Enjoy the paddled boats for free to all guests and tool around our little fishing lake. Not a swimming lake, but great to spot turtles and wildlife, another excellent spot to catch the sunset and maybe even some fire flies. Have a camp fire, we have wood stocked on site and grill out if you would like! There are many fishing lakes in the area too. Walk, bike or ATV our trails. Bring the kids to the little playground, play horse shoes, or badmitten, or even bring your own favorite yard games:) We are 25 minutes away from Itasca State Park and old downtown Bemidji. Itasca has the headwaters of the great mississippi that you can walk across, take a ferry around the lake, rent bicycles for their MANY bike trails or rent boats, eat at the lodge or swim at their beautiful beach that has showers and bathrooms. In downtown Bemidji there are so many events throughout the summer: fairs, dragon boat festivals, art festivals, holiday celebrations and more. Downtown is great for walking, eating great food, shopping and taking pictures by the famous Paul Bunyan and Babe statues. More

Interaction with guests
When you book, our contact information will be released to each other so we can get in touch, and make sure that you are as prepared as possible and know what to expect so your vacation can be its best! I will let you know how to get into the cabin as well. After you book you are welcome to call or I will call you to get you squared away:) I am available to call ANYTIME, even if it is 4 in the morning and you cant figure out how the remote works, I would rather you be taken care of and happy so never hesitate to call or text. The phone reception in the cabin is very poor. If you lay your phone by one of the many windows... texts and calls come through, and if you step outside then you get much better reception.

We were in the area for work so didn't get to explore much, but the views from the Refuge were beautiful. The cabin is new and secluded, with an open floor plan and a large, very well-equipped kitchen (even has a large crock pot!) Comfortable...More

How to get there
We are off the beaten path, down a township dirt road,(320th street) you will definitely feel like you have found 'middle of nowhere' even the reception can be awful so definitely ask about directions if you are confused. I will forward you specific directions to the cabin to get you there. Please let us know that you arrive and if you have questions, especially if you roll in late at night.
