The Cabin

We are so excited to introduce to you "The Cabin in the Woods" - made especially for you in mind, adoptive parents.

We began LAAS to help support moms and dads who are also going through potentially very stressful times after adopting their child - as we had also gone through. 


After doing fall retreats between 2018-2020, we decided it would be nice to have a place to do more personal ministry, hold mini-retreats and have a place for adoptive couples to just "get away."  We live on 8 acres on a lake just south of Audubon, MN, and have a small cabin in the woods down near the lake.

We specifically had adoptive parents in mind when we brought this dream to reality!

Do you?


  • Just need to get away and have peace and quiet and read a book or take a nap?

  • As a couple, need a place to talk, read, pray or just have a date night ALONE?

  • Get out of the city and have a private place to come swim, play games, kayak, fish or walk in the woods?


What does The Cabin offer?


  • Small, private beach with a deck, dock, kayaks, fishing poles and swim pad

  • A tiny-type house where you can make a meal, take a nap, or read a book

  • Sleeps 3 comfortably

  • Mini-fridge, loft beds, futon, kitchen table, counter space, fireplace, fans, microwave, Keurig, grill, toaster

  • Bathroom with hot-cold running water and self-contained toilet (no shower and no kitchen sink)

  • Firepit, picnic table, parking for up to 4 cars

  • Can be used in all 4 seasons (providing the snow does not prevent clearing the driveway and path to the cabin)

  • High Speed Internet for working or watching a movie on your laptop


Go to our FAQ page to learn more about this tiny space.

There is no stove, so pack cold sandwiches or bring items to grill out, cook over a fire, or put in the microwave. 


To Reserve: Text or call Lori at 701-238-8046 or Jeff at 701-361-9534 or shoot us an Email.

**At this time we are only taking reservations for adults, unfortunately due to liability issues, we will

not be able to have families come.


Our Cabin is FREE to use but if you feel so led, you can make a donation towards our ministry to help other adoptive families, but you are not obligated to do so. Our ministry provides books, support, mini-retreats and education to adoptive families in the Detroit Lakes, MN, and surrounding areas.
