Bundle up and gather with your family or loved ones around the fire pit, go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing or ​hike nearby woods while you stay in a cabin. Begin and end the day gazing over nearby pond or bird watch from the large deck. When the weather outside is frightful, gather inside to ​enjoy games, puzzles, or read by the gas fireplace. Additional amenities include a full modern kitchen with dishes provided, comfortable beds, bathroom with accessible shower, modern household furnishings, and outside BBQ grill and fire ring.

Take a break from technology, as the cabins do not have Wi-Fi or TVs to distract you from nature, allowing you to hike, fish, bird watch, hunt, or just sit and enjoy the scenery.
