5/5 Excellent

Great location and beautiful surroundings!

5/5 Excellent

Off the grid
It was just the balance of “off the grid” getaway, scenic beauty and local flavor we were looking for in a short getaway to northern Minnesota. The host/manager made sure we had anything we needed and the wild call of the loons on the lake at 3:00 am made the trip perfect.

5/5 Excellent

Great Getaway
We really enjoyed our time at Wilderness Winds! Jay was really helpful! We had a great evening paddle on the lake before the rain started. Gazebo was a great place for playing games out of the rain. We’ll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
Before we even got to property I was impressed by the customer service. Jay was so friendly, helpful, and quick to respond. The property was beautiful with boats and different things to use and everyone was so friendly. Our cabin was quaint and had everything we needed. Great stay!

5/5 Excellent

True Northwoods experience
The Bear Cabin was the essence of a Northwoods log cabin experience. Incredible views of Armstrong Lake, loons hooting, and millions of stars at night.
