Photo of the some of the Brule River Barn family

We love all our former brides and grooms like our own family, which is why they're all invited back for an exclusive mini-moon.


What is a Mini-Moon?

Over the summer, we hear so many of our couples say that they wanted a little more time at our Cottage, so we've decided to open it up to couples to have another little honeymoon here during the winter. The northwoods are covered with crisp, white snow from January through March, which makes this the perfect time to cozy up in the cottage together.  Along with the ambiance of the Brule River Barn in winter, the town of Brule offers many winter recreations including snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and fishing.

Thank you Jill for your hospitality & for providing the cutiest/coziest getaway for my husband and I. We had such a fun stay, watching Christmas movies & playing board games, as well as hiking around Brule & visiting a couple local bars/restaurants. The cabin was so clean & cute. We didn’t want to leave!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I stay longer?

Yes, but the discount only applies for 2 nights.

Do I need to bring anything? What's provided?

What can I do in the area in the winter?

There are local snowmobiling and ski trails, a ski hill in Duluth, a winery in Iron River, and even more! Winter is an exciting time of year on the shores of Lake Superior and there's always plenty to do.
