Can you feel it? Spring is in the air! True, we had a blizzard warning last week, but signs are everywhere that old man winter is stepping aside. Hostas are sending their first shoots up out of the still frozen ground. I saw a baby cardinal on a bird feeder outside my window. The kids at the bus stop are wearing shorts. (That probably shouldn’t be a reliable indication of the season seeing as how some of them will wear shorts all year long.) But still… the promise of warmer weather is coming!
And with the change of season comes plenty of recreational opportunities at the cabin. We still have some availability and would love to host your spring getaway. Here’s what’s happening around the area:
Chateau St. Croix Winery is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting the weekend of March 17th & 18th.
Glenna Farms will be offering farm tours and free pancakes with plenty of maple syrup during Maple Fest the first weekend in April.
Got a craving for some smelt? Take your pick from three different smelt fry dinners at the Rod & Gun Club in Balsam Lake or the EMT Smelt Fry (both April 8th) or the American Legion Smelt Fry in Turtle Lake on April 9th.
Cushing is hosting their annual Spring Bash on April 22nd with a lasagna dinner and live auction.
Once May arrives the event calendar will be bursting with fun things to do.
St. Croix Valley’s Fall Sampler is set for May 5th. Local restaurants, breweries, bakeries and more will be offering sips and samples of food and beverages.
Fawn-Doe-Rosa opens for the spring/summer season on May 6th.
Train rides in and out of Osceola start the weekend of Mother’s Day, Saturday, May 13th. My kids still talk about riding the train back and forth, a highlight for a fun family excursion!
In addition to the fun things to do listed above, there are many local art festivals, concerts, garden sales and get-togethers going on in the area. Spring is a great time to visit the lake. The snow is melting, the flowers are budding and the fish are still biting! Let us know if we can help you enjoy a little slice of spring cabin paradise before high season sets in!
