Share an unforgettable Thanksgiving Vacation with your family in the Northwoods

November 22 – November 26, 2023

The best Thanksgiving vacations are the kind you spend with friends and family and you don’t have to cook or clean!

Enjoy a cozy Thanksgiving cabin rental in the Minnesota Northwoods. Come enjoy a long weekend in a cozy private cabin. The delights of a traditional holiday in the woods with your family or friends. The reward of a walk through the woods after a spectacular Thanksgiving dinner. Be sure to pack your hiking boots and ready yourself for some truly breathtaking walks in the Superior National Forest. And snap your family holiday pictures with Santa in our sleigh with our trusty Clydesdales, Hannah and Heather!

Back in 1621, our Pilgrim ancestors started the tradition of a Thanksgiving celebration for the blessings they experienced in their lives. They invited their Native American neighbors to join them in a feast of venison, fish, corn, nuts, and berries. When the Kerfoot family came to the Gunflint Trail in 1927 they continued this tradition. They invited all the neighbors to join them, the Plummers and Cooks (their Native American neighbors), trappers, guides, loggers, and anyone else who was around.

As we continue to offer our old-fashioned Thanksgiving in the Northwoods, it’s the perfect opportunity to relax and remember what it’s all about. And to share this tradition with new friends in the Northwoods too.

Looking for thanksgiving vacation ideas? While you’re here, enjoy the outdoors by hiking or looking for moose and deer in the woods. Book a wagon ride and let our Clydesdales pull you through the forest to beautiful views. Play board games in front of your fireplace or rent a cabin with a hot tub and soak. Step outside after dark to check for Northern Lights or a nearby wolf howling.

All your meals are covered during your stay, including the huge Thanksgiving Buffet. Your mouth will water just smelling the venison roast, double smoked ham, and slow-roasted whole turkey. Not to mention all the side dishes and desserts.
