Stay in a cozy cabin close to the Paul Bunyan Trail by Pine River, MN. Go snowmobiling, explore the land, and sit outside by the fire. It's also in the Brainerd Lakes area, so shopping, dinning out and taking in some local activities are within a moments drive.

We had a great weekend at Norske Camp. The first night another camper had reserved a renting spot, which wasn’t a big deal but the privacy isn’t spectacular between the tent spots and the cabin. There aren’t blinds or curtains in the cabin either to have helped with some privacy. That was a very minor issue that didn’t prevent us from having a great weekend away from the city. Chris thought of a lot of little details from water, firewood, lighters, yard games, etc to make the weekend even better than we had planned. Very close to the trail so we got to enjoy a beautiful walk with our dogs.

Great place to stay for the night Chris was very friendly and helpful. Was closer to the highway then we realized. We’re looking for something more isolated.

Chris was a very friendly and communicative guy who made sure we were comfortable. The cabin was very rustic and cute. There was no electricity which made it feel off-the-grid. I recommend bringing a couple friends, lighting a fire/some candles and enjoying the peace and quiet.
