Innkeeper for a Relaxing Retreat
Cross Bearskin Lake and retreat into our wilderness lodge. We take care of accommodations, so you can handle the rest. Enjoy heated sleeping quarters, home-cooked meals including fresh bread, our log sauna and the beautiful north woods surroundings—a unique backdrop to your group’s activities.
During these three- to five-day programs, sleep in camp and take one-day and half-day guided trips. Many sites close to Menogyn make excellent day trips, including Rose Falls and Stairway portage, Honeymoon Bluff, Caribou Rock and Watap Palisades. We can provide everything your group needs as you explore by day and relax in our cabins or lodge by night.
In spring and fall, our activities include canoeing, hiking and fishing. During winter, we can provide an Introduction to Winter Wilderness program that includes skiing, snowshoeing and dog sledding.
Guided On-Trail Programs
To get a true wilderness experience, let us outfit and guide your group into the pristine BWCA or Quetico wilderness areas. Our experienced and caring trail guides provide whatever level of education you require, including wilderness camping/canoeing skills, minimal-impact camping, group dynamics, flora and fauna and wilderness ethics.
We also tailor leadership, teambuilding and service learning programs with wilderness components. These trips offer interdisciplinary learning and have many applications in the classroom or group setting.
Wilderness Dog Sledding
Come up to camp for a long weekend, stay in our heated cabins, and spend the days outside, skiing, snowshoeing and of course, dog sledding. About 20 dogs live at Menogyn from late December until early March. Many have run and finished races like the Beargrease and Iditarod. They are some of the best-trained and most well mannered dogs in the country and love to share their role in fun, outdoor living.
Our staff will train you on how to interact with the dogs, teach you about sled dog history and safe mushing and take you out on a run. You'll even have the chance to mush your own sled. Most groups spend three or more nights with us.
