Plan your perfect getaway

by North Dakota Tourism


Travelers continue to seek experiences in safe places and uncrowded spaces, looking for what North Dakota has always offered – unique lodging where you can safely and affordably relax, recharge and recreate with family and friends.

Gather the extended family for a midwinter get-together at spacious lodges like Coteau des Prairies in southeast North Dakota. The large rustic, yet refined, 13-bedroom lodge overlooking the countryside near Havana sits atop a hill great for sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Nearby Tewaukon National Wildlife Refuge provides opportunities for guests to explore.

Quaint stays like 221 Melstad Place and One Majestic Place in a scenic country setting near Mountain are ideal for relaxing getaways, quilting weekends or scrapbooking retreats. Stay active on trails in nearby Pembina Gorge or shred the slopes at Frost Fire Park.

Dakotah Rose Bed and Breakfast is fitting for a romantic getaway, as this 100-year-old home along the Souris River in Minot provides modern standards while retaining its old-world charm. Kindle that Valentine’s Day spark with sweet homemade treats and several romance packages.

Consider a cabin or yurt in a state park as a basecamp. Many are tucked away in the woods, but have all the comforts of home. So, when you return to Lake Metigoshe State Park from Bottineau Winter Park, your cabin and cozy fireplace will be waiting. Fishing never closes in North Dakota, so anglers can spend the day ice fishing on Devils Lake, telling fish stories over a meal at Proz Lakeside and catching a good night’s rest at Woodland Resort.

For those who prefer traditional lodging, Rough Riders Hotel in Medora is luxury in a western setting and Hotel Donaldson in Fargo highlights the city’s art scene.

Rough it in the Badlands during the day and enjoy an evening of fine dining and luxury at Rough Riders Hotel. Look for wildlife in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and hike along the Maah Daah Hey Trail.

Art afficionados and those who enjoy the downtown vibe will love their stay at the Hotel Donaldson. Take your pick of 17 art-inspired suites with luxurious furnishings.
