The James party arrived today — five adults, two dogs and a lot of gear. On their 10th plus visit, they know how to pack light!
It was a lot of fun to meet them and hear their stories including the 10-hour drive they made to meet the 2:00 pm check-in!
Here’s an excerpt from today’s Duluth News Tribune featuring Log Cabin Hideaways!
“I wanted (my guests) to know what it’s like to look up and see the stars and not have any light pollution,” he <Lampman> said.
The Triangle Lake cabin and their other formerly owned cabins give the backwoods experience. They have wood-fired stoves and saunas, propane-fueled refrigerators, outhouses and compost piles nearby, and solar-powered lights. Guests bathe by jumping into the lakes in the summer and chiseling holes through the ice in the winter.
“They love doing that,” Lampman said. “It’s part of the experience.”
It’s our intent to change very little to the Log Cabin Hideaways experience!
Well, the blueberries and Saskatoon (aka Service or June) berries are quite abundant this year! The Saskatoons have been going for close to three weeks; the berries are like grapes and the picking is plentiful. We’ve got about twelve gallons in the freezer with plans to make wine this winter.
Blueberries are on the agenda starting Monday; meanwhile, here are photos taken on the trail at the Blueberry Hill cabin.
