A little history of Naniboujou:
If you are not familiar with Naniboujou Lodge, it is an amazing, historical Lodge located North of Grand Marais, Mn. along the shores of Lake Superior.

“It all began in November of 1927. The founding members of the Naniboujou Holding Company formed an exclusive club on the northwestern banks of Lake Superior. The prestigious Naniboujou charter members included Babe Ruth, the famous New York Yankee, Jack Dempsey, the former world heavyweight champion, and Ring Lardner, a New York newspaperman.”
Antoine Goufee, a French artist, painted Cree Indian designs over the walls and the twenty-foot-high domed ceiling (resembling the shape of a canoe). Guests marvel at its originality. “The almost psychedelic Cree Indian designs covering the walls and ceiling are like a North Woods answer to the Sistine Chapel.”
“Guests of today do not come for golf or for a dive into a swimming pool; they return seeking a quiet, peaceful, and natural environment. They come to gather their senses and to replenish both body and spirit in a place called Naniboujou.”
 
The history continues with many twists and turns. Today, the Lodge is privately owned, and we have the opportunity to have it to ourselves for 4 days of knitting, exploring, and relaxing.
