Enjoy morning coffee on your deck while listening to the loons, or just watch the sky, the air here is clean & clear.  Chances are good you’ll see Eagles & Osprey.

A morning walk, jog, or bicycle ride on adjacent forest trails is another great way to begin a day.  Stop along the trail & pick some wild berries or wild flowers for the table.

Mid day, break for lunch back at the cabin before that well earned nap, or heading out on the lake to do some boating, tubing, or water skiing.

Or maybe it’s off to the game room to play pool, ping-pong, or video games.

Shoot some hoops, throw horseshoes, or get a volleyball game going.

Summer “up north” holds the promise of beautiful skies & warm sunny days.  Make your day special by reading a book, working on a tan, or just relaxing & hanging out.

While the kids are having a ball playing at the beach on our fantastic new playground, relax & take a dip in the lake.

Enjoy a soda, play games, cards, or have a beer in the shade!

We’re the only resort in the area that’s adjacent to designated ATV trails.

Bring up your ATV & take a ride on the Chippewa National Forest ATV trails before heading back out on the lake for some evening Crappie or Walleye fishing.

In the evening, gather around a campfire, roast marshmallows, make new friends & swap your latest fishing stories while enjoying gorgeous sunsets over beautiful North Star Lake.

We provide the firewood & hot dog sticks & if you like, we’ll get the fire going for you.

Cool clear nights bring out more stars than you ever thought possible, accompanied by the unique serenade of loons.

No city lights.  Watch the night sky for Northern Lights.  Nights here are quiet & comfortable & you’ll sleep like a baby!
