Murder Mystery Weekend Package

What better way to get ready for Halloween then to witness (and solve) a murder mystery!

While Gunflint Lodge is a place to relax and enjoy the wilderness setting, on this weekend it won’t be quite the restful place it normally is because of a murder (or two, let’s say three at the outside) will be committed in front of a roomful of witnesses!

The weekend of crime will follow one of Keith and Margo’s Murder Mystery Weekend special plots starting Friday evening when you meet with your fellow sleuths, not all of whom are what they appear to be. Infiltrating the group are actors who will do their best to blend in, and sometimes, even work to incriminate you. The Friday reception is a good place and time to become familiar with the scheming, manipulative, deceitful and murderous people that you will be spending the next day and a half with.

The mystery begins on Friday evening and develops by the early afternoon on Saturday, but you’ll still have some free time to take advantage of Gunflint Lodge’s hiking trails, lakeside amenities, and guided Naturalist activities before dinner. During this time, dreadful events may occur, and you may even stumble over a dead body or two. In the best tradition of television and the movies, the chances are good that a kindly, perhaps somewhat disheveled, local detective with a possibly warped sense of humor will become involved to clarify the situation, guiding and cajoling you into thinking about the means, methods and motives of murder!

By dinner on Saturday night, you should have all the information you need to solve the murder, but just when you think you’ve got it sussed, watch out for the final twist!

Sunday breakfast at Gunflint Lodge is when it all comes to an end! You’ll be asked to write down your best hunch about who did what to whom, and why. (You already know how, because you’ll have seen it with your own eyes.) While you enjoy breakfast with your fellow sleuths, our team will select the best submitted solution, along with some of the more outlandish suggestions for the prize-giving ceremony. So grab your friends and head north for a weekend of mystery, good food, and good times!

The Murder Mystery Weekend Includes:

- Two nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin

- Appetizers and welcome dinner Friday night

- Breakfast and lunch on Saturday

- Saturday appetizers and dinner

- Sunday breakfast and award ceremony

- Use of canoes, kayaks paddle boards and hiking trails

- All guided Naturalist activities

- A rollicking good time with lots of laughs and excitement!

Bluegrass & Stringband Weekend

Grab your friends and your favorite instrument and join us up North for some musical jamming and a Bluegrass concert with Hall of Famer Dick Kimmel and Pamela Longtine!

This will be a weekend celebrating and experiencing authentic bluegrass and old-time stringband music with some of its best. Dick Kimmel has been entertaining audiences for more than a half-century throughout North America and Europe.  The music of Dick Kimmel is firmly rooted within traditional old-time stringband, bluegrass, and folk music; genres where he excels as a performer as well as an historian, mentor, and teacher.  Dick has been inducted into America’s Old-Time Country and Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame, the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, and the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame.

Pamela Longtine plays traditional music inspired by the fiddlers who carried dance tunes, such as schottisches, jigs, and polkas from Northern Europe to America. She specializes in rural American hoedowns and waltzes as well as French-Canadian jigs and reels. Pamela’s original tunes, one of her specialties, are carefully placed in the style of the older fiddle tunes.

Thanksgiving Weekend

Share an unforgettable Thanksgiving with your family in the Northwoods

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.

While you’re here, enjoy the outdoors hiking or looking for moose and deer in the woods. Play board games in front of your fireplace. 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 haunch of buffalo, double smoked ham and slow roasted whole turkey. Not to mention all the side dishes and desserts. And there are always homemade cookies, coffee, tea and hot chocolate at the Lodge all day long.
