"Live Simply and Breathe"
Itinerary? We've lined up several delightful options for you to do. However, this weekend is really up to you as to how you would like to spend it. But, for those who like to have a little more detail, here's what we can confidently give you:
Friday, Feb 14th: Arrive at the Gunflint Lodge any time between 4-7p.m. We'll have a casual meet and greet around 7 p.m. We recommend grabbing dinner in Grand Marais at one of the fun little eateries on your drive up. If you arrive on the earlier side, you can grab a bite to eat in the lodge dining as well. We'll have the saunas stoked and the hot chocolate and cookies awaiting your arrival. It will be our own little "Gal"entines get together that evening around the fireplace. We may mosey around a bit on the lodge property to get a good lay of the land for the weekend and maybe catch the wondrous Northern Lights. Bottom line: tune your mindset to "rest and relaxation" mode tonight and prepare to check out of the hustle and bustle of life for the next few days.
Saturday and Sunday, Feb 15+16th: Eat, drink, ski, nap, skate, snowshoe, nap, read, nap, eat, drink...you get the idea? Our theme for the weekend will be "Live Simply and Breathe". We'll have two sessions (one on Saturday and one on Sunday) to share a few simple ways to simplify our lives and truly find time to breathe in this wonderful world we live in. Kim will also lead a couple of gentle exercise/yoga sessions for those who would like to do some healthful, mindful stretching. Of course, all activities are optional. We provide the options, you decide how much or how little you choose to do. Dog sledding will also be available for an additional $68 fee.
Monday, Feb 17th: We'll pack in one more mouth watering breakfast in the lodge dining room, do all of the activities we'd like to do in our last morning on the Gunflint, and then head back to our homes around 11 a.m. For those who want one last meal together, we can meet up in Grand Marais for lunch to share stories and celebrate a wonderfully warm weekend together.
