7 Cozy Getaways

North Dakota has a vast array of comfortable lodging, some suited for all seasons.

Cupid may have a lot to say about where some people spend Valentine’s Day, but a cozy weekend getaway in February can be more than just a couples’ retreat.

With winter still hanging on, outdoor lovers can fill their days with fun in the snow and find comfort at night in a lodge of their choice – be it a cabin, yurt, lodge, resort or hotel. Whatever it is you crave, we’ve got you covered.

Consider these options, ranging from upscale to rustic:

Hotel Donaldson, Fargo

Boutique hotel is a great stay after a night out in downtown Fargo. Start with shopping, add a meal and a drink afterward and complete the evening in one of the unique rooms.

Woodland Resort, Devils Lake

Spend a day indoors (an ice house), dine in (Proz Lakeside at the Cove) and spend the night indoors (cabin, lodge or motel room) at the full-service resort on the shores of Devils Lake.

Rough Riders Hotel, Medora

A popular stay is the summer is also warm and hospitable in the winter. Explore Theodore Roosevelt National Park by day, dine in and retire into upscale comfort at night.

Art Link Cabin at Cross Ranch, Washburn

Cross-country ski through the woods along the Missouri River and at nightfall retire to the cabin where a warm fireplace, food, maybe a little music and games await.

Coteau des Prairies Lodge, Havana

This upscale 13-bedroom lodge perched on a hill offers remarkable scenery and can accommodate you and a dozen or so friends – or family – looking for some time away from the every day grind.

Pederson Yurt, For Ransom State Park

Surround yourself with nature. Wildlife and winter hiking will fill your day and the unique and uniquely modern yurt is a modern twist on an ancient style of lodging.

Cabins at Lake Metigoshe State Park

If it’s a night in a cabin in the woods that excites you, it doesn’t get much better than Slemmen, Loon or Pringle lodges along the Canadian border. Spend a day cross-country skiing, snowmobiling or ice fishing in the park or downhill skiing at Bottineau Winter Park, then come back to the rustic cabin where it’s just you, a cozy fire and nature.
