If you are looking for a place to unwind, relax, and take in the trails, look no further than Eagle Nest Lodge located in beautiful northern Minnesota.
We took our son's deer hunting in the Chippewa National forest and found this gem.
We selected cabin 11 due to it's size and open floor plan. It was a perfect base camp for hunting and card playing. Located adjacent to the national forest, we were able to have a great breakfast and be in our deer stands at daybreak. The cabin was built in 2010 and appeared brand new. Each father/son combo had our own room and the beds were great. There is a log fireplace with glass door so you get the great fire without the smell of smoke. There are two, large bathrooms and one has a complete full sized, stacked laundry to dry wet clothes. It was very quiet and the log cabin interior really fit the bill.
Very large kitchen to cook big camp meals with little effort. With two fridges, we were able to stock all of our food and bev with ease. It was completely furnished with every appliance and a dishwasher to make cleanup a breeze. We brought along some venison and fired up the grill just outside on the wide, covered patio. If you have any chefs with you, they will love to cook in this kichen.
The cabin came fully furnished with bed linens, x-tra pillows, and full towel set for everyone. Many cabins up north do not offer full service or even come close. We were greeted our first night after the hunt by one of the owners, Sue, just checking in to see if we needed anything else.
No television (good thing), but they did have free wifi so we could check on weather and other stuff (like homework).
I could see coming up here anytime during the year, including winter. There are many trails to explore by foot, mountain bike, four-wheeler, or cross country skies. With so many miles of trails, there would always be new areas to explore. Are you a photographer?
We looked in some of the other cabins that were open, and every one was just as nice as the one we rented for the long weekend. Located just four hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul, it was the right place, right price, and the right time. Sue and Bryan are great so check it out!
