Thinking Chair

​​​Four seasons of fun:

Summer:  Warm weather and beautiful lakes. There is something for everyone.  If you're a fisherman, we have many different species of fish to catch (walleye, bass, perch, northern pike, crappies, bluegill, sturgeon and muskies (best in late fall).  Not a fisherman, no problem, boating around and enjoy the astonishing shoreline.  Take a  relaxing day on the beach soaking up the beauty around you.  The loons will be calling you to come and enjoy their playground.  Other land base activities, we have hiking trails, ATV trails, canoeing, golfing, bear sanctuary, bog walk, and shopping.  Mid July - August is wild blueberry season.  Give us a call and we will let you know how the crop is weathering.


Fall:  Mid to end of September the trees show their spectacular colors.  There is driving, hiking, ATVing or hunting (bear, grouse & deer).  To me you are in Mother Nature's prime season, with miles of forest to explore.  


Winter: Awe the hard water has arrived with a blanket of white sparkles!  Come enjoy the wonderful season of snowmobiling and ice fishing.  With  many surrounding snowmobiling trails (lakes or forest trails), you won't get tired of the same ride.  Our groomed trail to Pine Ridge allows easy access to all the state/local groomed trails.


Spring:  It's time to watch nature come alive!  Try you luck hunting for wonderful tasty wild mushrooms, or search the woods for deer and moose sheds.  Bring your ATV's, it's so fun to get in the woods and maybe some mud.  Riding or hiking pack a lunch, and enjoy the natural music of the forest.


​Pine Ridge is open year round.  With 4 seasons of adventure you're sure to go home with amazing memories.
