Top 5 Things to Do at the Cabin - Winter Edition

It’s that time of year… the holidays are over, spring is way too far away and the winter doldrums are setting in. If you’re looking for something to do to chase those blah’s away, check out the Top 5 Things to Do at Up North Cabin Rentals in Winter!


#5 - Ice Fishing - Many of our guests have enjoyed fishing from the shore or the dock in the summer. But winter is a great time to try your luck at pulling a 40+” muskie out of the water or filling up on panfish. There have been reports of Muskie, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye. Just make sure you check regulations and ice conditions before you set up!



#4 - Snowshoeing - Guests can snowshoe right on the lake, around one of the cabins, or on one of the trails nearby. One of our favorites is the Somers Lake Trail just east of Frederic. 


#3 - Cross Country Skiing -Grab your poles and strap on those skis! From nice, flat trails for beginners to hills and twisty turns, there are tons of cross country trails in the area.


#2 - Snowmobiling - We’re lucky to have over 350 miles of groomed snow mobile trails right here in Polk County! And you can access them directly from the lake. For more info:

#1 - Nothing! Despite all of the incredible recreational opportunities around, sometimes our favorite thing to do is absolutely nothing at all. Curl up on the sofa, grab a book from our library, pour a glass of wine or a cup of cocoa and watch the snow fall! 


There you have it... our top five things to do at the cabin in winter. And lucky for you there are still several months of cold weather left, so plenty of time to book a weekend and get in on the fun!
