Little Bear Lodge, Wisconsin with Amanda Arends and Taryn Hyland

Little Bear Lodge, Wisconsin with Amanda Arends and Taryn Hyland

Hit the road in your home on wheels, travel to the middle of nowhere and stay in a cabin in the woods.  This is Amanda & Taryn's Will & Bear Weekend Away at Little Bear Lodge in Wisconsin.

Normally spending a Fall weekend alone in the woods in the middle of nowhere sounds like the setting of a horror story.  But for these two nomads, they found solstice and slow-paced bliss on the outskirts of a remote town in the Midwest.

They left Minnesota in their vanagon, Stevie, and arrived at Little Bear Cabin in Comstock, Wisconsin on a little lake that’s fastest moving traffic were beavers and loons. Night one was filled with a Fall foliage sunset and hatted heart-to-hearts around the fire while sipping wine out of enamel mugs.

After sleeping like Goldie Locks in Little Bear Cabin, they spent a slow morning making banana pancakes to fuel up for a canoe adventure on the lake. The lake was like glass, making every paddle perfection. The next day they decided to throw a costume party for two. Dressed as a hatted park ranger and a little bear (in Will and Bear hats, naturally), they ended their weekend away by partying like creatures in their natural habitat.
