 Winter Activities

Summer is great at the Decoy Lodge, but winter is even better!  Upon your arrival, the lodge will be set at a comfortable 72F.  And don't forget the gas fireplace!  One simple flip of the switch and you've got a roaring fire.

Guests also receive complimentary use of the Pool & Fitness Center at Chase on the Lake!

For those bitter cold nights, an outdoor outlet is provided to keep you car plugged in as well.

So what can you do in the winter at the Decoy Lodge?  Here's just a few ideas:

  • Snowmobiling - we're across the street from the Paul Bunyan and Heartland Trail System!

  • Ice Fishing - fish right off Allen's Point or rent a fish house from our friends at J&K Marine

  • Girls Getaways/Spa Weekends

  • Cross Country Skiing

  • Downhill Skiing

  • Family Getaway's

  • Scrap Booking or Quilting Weekends



The Decoy Lodge is a proud supporter of the Leech Lake Riders Snowmobile Club. The club's grooming shack is less than a mile from the Decoy Lodge, so you're almost guaranteed great riding conditions (As long as the snow cooperates).  Here's club's grooming schedule:

Mondays - Soo Line Trail

Tuesdays - C Trail

Wednesday - Snoway One and Cut Across

Thursday - C Trail and Paul Bunyan

Friday - Waker to Cass Lake

Saturday/Sunday - As needed, where needed
