This is really just an old fishing lodge on the shores of Spirit Lake. It can boast an elevation of 10,000 ft above sealevel. The August weekend we were there a storm came through and left 2 inches of snow. When it is good weather there is canoeing and fishing on the lake. Moose are a common visitor along with other more secretive animals. Come and sit by the wood stove in the main building, and let the world wash away.

Unique Qualities: There are about 10 individual cabins to rent. Expect rustic and be sure to bring your fishing gear. And if you feel like camping, there is a nice campground right next door.

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: It does require a 21 mile dirt road drive. But it is a good dirt road and takes you through some wonderful back country.
Price: US$40-80
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
