Thunder Bay Carriage Ride, Elk Viewing, Gourmet Meal, Wine Tasting, and Fall Colors

October 7 @ 7:30 am - 7:00 pm

Thunder Bay

$185.00 Per Person

Step back in time to life on the frontier. You begin by boarding a horse drawn carriage that will take you through the wooded resort and away from the daily hustle and bustle. A wooden bridge takes you over the Thunder Bay River and into the Elk Preserve. Here you will get an up close look at majestic bull elk. Bring your camera as you’ll have ample opportunity to snap some pictures. Enjoy the scenery, the smell of pine, and the ever changing face of the Thunder Bay River as the horses make their way deep in the woods to the beautiful Elk Antler Log Cabin. A blazing fire in a massive split stone fireplace welcomes you. The riverside cabin is decorated in period antiques and trophy mounts. Wonderful aromas mix with the scent of hardwood smoke and emanate from two antique wood cook stoves in full view. This elegant cabin maintains its rustic appearance while providing every amenity. Warm yourself by the fire, enjoy something from the bar and savor the delicious aromas put forth by the twin antique wood cook stoves as culinary prepare your five course gourmet meal. Throughout your meal you will sample six locally produced wines from the Sunrise Side and be entertained by storytelling from your hosts.
