With our year-round central location, a variety of lodging and meeting facilities, and exciting programs options, we are the ideal spot for a ‘close to home, yet far enough away’ escape from the hustle and bustle. Conveniently located within 1-1.5 hours from the Twin Cities, St Cloud, Duluth and Brainerd, ACNW is the perfect distance from anywhere to ‘get away from it all’ for one day or several without spending a fortune on gas.
Situated on over 535 serene acres on the shores of Grindstone Lake near Sandstone, we have over 7 miles of trails through a variety of habitat, including old growth forest, managed forest, wetlands, and restored prairie. Our unique site provides a wonderful setting for your meeting or gathering; quiet and secluded, surrounded only by the soothing sounds and sights of the Minnesota outdoors.
We do not allow ATV’s or other motorized recreational vehicles on our property, so you can be assured of a quiet site, where the only sounds you will hear are the lapping of waves on the rocks, wind blowing through the old white pines, or songbirds singing in the treetops.
Whether you are looking for a location for a short field trip or day-long meeting, have a weekend retreat needing meals and lodging, want to schedule a company party or banquet, or need to rent the entire center for a larger group, the Audubon Center of the North Woods provides a conveniently located, affordable and natural setting for your group or event.
