If home is where the heart is and there's no place like home for the holidays, might we suggest following your heart and spending the holidays at Tuscarora this year? Do note, Tuscarora's cabins always fill up over Christmas. If you're dreaming of a Northwoods Christmas amid Tuscarora's towering, snow-dusted white pines, the time of book is now: 218-388-2221. 

Speaking of the holidays, Ada's Etsy shop offers a selection of handmade, Northwoods inspired gifts. As we get closer to the holidays, we'll list a selection of hand knit "Tuscarora" hats too. 

Are you following the Tuscarora blog? It's a great place to meet Tuscarora staff, stay on top of Gunflint Trail happenings, and find reflections on life at a lodge/canoe outfitters. 

The latest from Trip Advisor:
"This was our third year in a row and as always, Tuscarora and the stellar beauty of the Boundary Waters did not disappoint. The staff at Tuscarora was incredibly friendly and helpful, the accommodations clean and comfortable."  - Steve T.
Finally, thank you, thank you, thank you! We so enjoyed meeting all of the wonderful Tuscarora guests this summer and can't wait to see you again. 

Happy Autumn from Tuscarora!

The canoes are tucked in bed for the winter; but Tuscarora is still wide awake.  

We've been waking up to frost perched on rooftops and a decided autumnal chill. On Saturday morning, the Seagull Guard Station a few miles up the road from Tuscarora recorded a temperature of 13 degrees! The nip in the air always gives us a burst of energy. There are projects galore to tackle around the resort, including tucking all of those Kevlar canoes in bed in our dining hall where they're protected from UV rays and the crushing weight of snow. (Sorry, no more French toast until May 1, 2016!) 

At the end of the day, nothing beats a sunset hike on the nearby Centennial Trail or the network of ski and snowmobile trails that abut Round Lake Road while leaves and pine needles swirl at your ankles. As the leaves come down, spectacular vistas open up. It's a great time of year for day trips. Snipe Loop anyone?  

If you've never been on the Gunflint Trail this time of year, we highly recommend it. There's something so precious about these quiet golden days between the busy summer season and when snow starts flying in earnest. If you're inclined towards grouse hunting, it's been a great year for birds. Bird watchers will enjoy the waves of migratory birds passing through as well. 

Fall Cabin Special  

Our year-round cabins (Cabin 3, Cabin 5, and the Lodge) are wide open for the remainder of the fall. This autumn, we're continuing our low October rates through December 20th. From November 1 - December 20, stay with us three nights for the price of two nights, including over Thanksgiving weekend. Just mention the three for two deal when you give us a call to book: 218-388-2221. We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Wildlife Watch

As the temperatures plunge, Gunflint Trail wildlife prepares for the coming winter, which usually means more wildlife sightings for residents and visitors. On a recent drive up the Trail, we spotted two moose, one fox, and one lynx! It appears our resident mama bear and cub who spent about six weeks chowing down on clover near the Cross Bay entry point finally moved on, perhaps to their winter den?
