There are two kinds of people in this world — those who go south for the winter, and those who go north.
If you happen to fall into the latter category, you have an opportunity to do something no winter-lover has ever done before: spend the snowiest months of the year at the scenic, idyllic Deer Ridge Resort in Ely, Minnesota.
Located near the majestic Boundary Waters Canoe Area, Deer Ridge sits on the shores of Garden Lake, which belongs to the White Iron Chain of Lakes. Boasting just nine log cabins, this resort is the very definition of exclusive. And, for the first time ever, it'll be open for business this winter — and offering BringMeTheNews readers an eye-popping discount to celebrate.
Between now and April 15th, reservations made with the promo code BMTN will receive 50% off Deer Ridge's regular cabin rates.
That's not only half off a spacious two- or three-bedroom cabins overlooking Garden Lake, but also half off an ideal northern Minnesota winter experience.
The perks and amenities (besides that whopping 50% off) are almost too many to name for one article. But let's start with a literal creature comfort: Deer Ridge is extremely dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your furry friend along for the stay.
And there'll be no shortage of things for the whole family to do: all the ice fishing you can handle, access to beautiful cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails, stunning natural wonders like Kawishiwi Falls, and even dogsledding opportunities, if you happen to be training for your next Iditarod.
But this winter wonderland isn't limited to the great outdoors. There's also Ely itself, which boasts shopping, restaurants, wildlife encounters at the International Wolf Center and North American Bear Center, and the ever-popular Winter Festival (happening February 4, 2021 - February 14, 2021).
And, of course, there's also the simple joy of experiencing something uniquely Minnesotan: the snowy, icy grandeur of a winter in the farthest reaches of the state.
So make a reservation while spaces are still available, and don't forget to use the promo code BMTN.
