Are you not quite through the post-holiday slump? Maybe your family seems to be dragging through the last dregs of winter, just waiting out work, school, and responsibilities until they get to the weekend – only to start all over again each Monday. How can your family escape the cabin fever of the close quarters of your four walls?
Surprisingly, one of the best cabin fever relievers can be a long, winter weekend in a cabin up north! Grand Rapids has cabins to fit every family’s size and taste, so plan your trip and watch the everyday annoyances melt away.
Though nearly all of our area resorts offer state-of-the-art internet and satellite TV, consider unplugging for the weekend and watching your family truly enjoy each other. Bring your favorite board games or playing cards and foster some healthy competition – and the laughter and camaraderie that will follow. Or, find a cabin with a full kitchen and enjoy making a meal together that’s not in the midst of the mid-evening rush of homework, chores, and bedtime.
Enjoy the Winter Landscape
Grand Rapids is truly the heart of the Great Northwoods, and your family will find no better winter scenery than right here. Whether you’re taking a snowy walk through quiet woods, or choosing to enjoy one of the area’s more active winter sports such as skiing, ice skating, or fat tire biking, your family will truly spend time together in a way that really matters. No matter what you choose to do together during the day, at each day’s end you can look forward to cozying up by the fire and sharing your favorite parts – as well as plan tomorrow!
