Plan a Weekend Getaway in North Dakota
February is the perfect time to plan a weekend getaway in North Dakota. From a cozy couples’ retreat to fun with the family or friends, you can customize the experience that’s right for you.
Outdoor lovers can fill their days with fun in the snow and find comfort at night in a lodge of their choice, while those enjoying urban amenities can shop, dine and stay in style. Whatever it is you crave, we’ve got you covered.
Consider these options, ranging from upscale to rustic:
Hotel Donaldson, Fargo www.hoteldonaldson.com
This boutique hotel is an eclectic stay after a night out in downtown Fargo. Start with shopping, add an authentic dining experience and complete the evening in one of the art-inspired rooms.
Woodland Resort, Devils Lake www.woodlandresort.com/lodging.html
Spend a day indoors (an icehouse), dine in (Proz Lakeside at the Cove) and spend the night indoors (cabin, lodge or suite) at the full-service resort on the shores of Devils Lake.
Rough Riders Hotel, Medora https://medora.com/stay/hotel/rough-riders-hotel
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 www.parkrec.nd.gov/cross-ranch-state-park
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 https://cdplodge.com
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 everyday grind.
Pederson Yurt, For Ransom State Park www.parkrec.nd.gov/stay/yurts-tipis
Surround yourself with nature. Wildlife and winter hiking will fill your day and the contemporary yurt is a modern twist on an ancient style of lodging.
Cabins at Lake Metigoshe State Park www.parkrec.nd.gov/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.
Whatever your brand of indoor and outdoor adventure, you can find it in North Dakota.
