Family vacations are becoming more and more popular these days. I’m not talking about your garden variety, “Mom, Dad and the kids go camping” family vacation. I’m talking about the ENTIRE family: Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, Cousins…EVERYONE! It’s common to see groups of extended family all heading to the same destination at the same time. It’s a great way to travel and can be very economical if it’s planned right.
No matter what time of the year you are considering a group vacation, Northwinds Adventures is a perfect destination to host your extended family or large group.
Our brand new and newly renovated vacation homes boast the following amenities: 8 Bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 4 fully stocked modern kitchens, all on 220 beautiful acres just 7 minutes outside of downtown Houghton MI. In addition to the 8 bedrooms, there are also pull out sofas, futons and Cabelas Deluxe Outfitters cots for additional sleeping capacity. At certain times of the year, you may even have access to a 2 bedroom heated and insulated bunkhouse that sleeps 8 people as well as our unique canvas wall tent villages (great for those adventurous teenagers in the family who’d like a little space of their own!). Free time can be enjoyed hiking, mountain biking and snowshoeing our private network of over 5 miles of trails traversing the property.
The above cabins are open all 4 seasons and have A/C in the summer and cozy wood stoves for the cold weather months. All 4 cabins can be rented for a total of $1000 per night with a 3 night minimum (peak season rates) with discounts available from Oct 31 – Dec 15 and April 1 – May 15. Compare that to what it would cost you for hotel rooms and that might get you 5-6 rooms at best!
We also have a “deluxe” family or group vacation package available at certain times of the year. This includes all of the cabins, access to our beach-side event center that features a commercial kitchen, dining hall that seats up to 60 and you’ll have the entire 10 acre private lake with all of our paddlesport equipment to yourselves for the duration of your stay!
The Keweenaw Peninsula is a fabulous outdoor adventure destination featuring almost any outdoor activity you can dream up! We can even help coordinate some group activities including guided kayak tours, Michigan Tech’s High Ropes Course or take you on an off pavement ATV tour on some beautiful trails to some picturesque remote beaches at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula!
Come on up to the Keweenaw for some family bonding!
