Last month we were given the opportunity to head out on a staycation with Cuyuna Cove - although this was gifted to us as part of a collaboration, the following review is our complete, honest opinion.

Cuyuna Cove is a small collection of Glamping Tents and Boutique Cabins located right on the outskirts of Crosby, Minnesota. Owned by Kelsey and Chris, this is their third rental property and from first impressions you know their hearts went into creating this space. Their boutique cabins are on one side of the property and open year round, with stunning floor to ceiling windows, kitchenettes, private bathrooms, and thoughtful details like a french press, games, and private patios with grills. They allow one pet (with a fee) and have WiFi that makes it a perfect spot to "work from home" (or "work from cabin?"). Their glamping tents on the other hand are open during the warmer months of summer, and has queen beds as well as access to the onsite indoor/outdoor bathrooms. Both types of lodging have access to the outdoor fire pits and sauna! Situated right outside the Cuyuna State Recreation Area, during the winter they also rent out HOK skis and include 2 adult snowshoes with your stay (!!) and have a mountain bike station onsite!
First things first, this is the coziest stay we've ever had in Minnesota. We 1000% recommend that you book a stay here, especially if you're a local that's trying to embrace the cold winters. We felt so at home in our "Mangan" cabin, and we spent so much time just relaxing, playing board games, and exploring the Cuyuna Rec Area that we truly fell in love with Cuyuna Cove! We can't wait to be back one day! Plus, there are also so many things to do nearby - we went shopping, made our first charcuterie board with the help of nearby Shop Victual, and explored some of the nearby mine lakes! We highly recommend checking out the guide that is provided when you check in - there are so many hidden gems that Kelsey and Chris have included! Happy exploring!
