Escape, Relax, Play, Connect

North Woods Haven: We love hosting our guests so that you can create wonderful experiences as a family, group of friends, or team. We want you, our guests, to take a respite from the intensity of your normal daily life and enjoy time away together, relaxing, playing, and connecting.

Fostering Hygge: We have designed our chalet with Hygge ("Hoo-ga") in mind, as we want all of our guests to experience the warmth, coziness, good feeling, togetherness, and simple delights summed up in the Scandinavian idea of Hygge. 

Your Cabin on the Lake: Our hope is that you as our guests will make our cabin your cabin and that you will gather your loved ones to come back here year after year.
