My family and I have went to the Boyd Lodge 2 times in the last three years and each experience is even better than before. They offer free cross country skiing equipment to all registered paying guests, and we took full advantage. We were able to cross country ski a total of 8-10 miles in two days and had a blast!!! There cottage cabins are excellent, and offer spectacular views of the beautiful setting the lodge offers. Crosslake and Pequot Lakes are close by for nearby shopping/antiquing, and there a plenty of places to eat, including one of our favorites "The Warf" which is located less than 5 miles east of the Lodge. You can't go wrong staying at the Boyd Lodge. My family and I are already getting plans in place to stay again next year!!!
