Fog resting over the St. Croix River

Dunrovin cabins are set near the scenic St. Croix River.

With summer approaching, you may be longing for a relaxing vacation. Hectic rush hour commutes and long days at work can get you thinking about the great outdoors. A refreshing getaway from the bustle of daily life sounds wonderful.

If you are interested in peacefully residing in nature, consider a private retreat in the River Cabin or North Woods Cabin at Dunrovin. These two quaint lodgings are open once again for the warmer months.

Dunrovin hosts all types of personal retreats. Some people who rent the cabins enjoy exploring the woods with their family while others prefer the silence of the St. Croix and a good book for company. Whatever you are searching for in a retreat, we will work to make your experience fit your needs.
