The Woods

Beautiful, quiet, and well-kept with all the nostalgia of growing up in Minnesota.

Here you can host a laid back cocktail hour with your signature drink, then go inside for your reception. Or you can stay here for the entire evening, enjoying an intimate sit down dinner with all your favorite people. It’s away from the busy-ness of the resort, but comfortably close to all the amenities.
