Idlewild Outfitters News

We have decided after 9 years it’s time to pass on our beautiful building to the next great entrepreneur and adventurer! We so enjoyed updating and bringing life back into this piece of Cumberland history. Thank you dear friends and customers for the memories and support!

Our last day open on Mainstreet will be Saturday October 3 from 1-3 pm.  We are planning to keep the business running for special orders only over the winter,  if you need any of our products reach out directly to Pauli at 651.238.2760.  We will explore new locations and business models for Idlewild Outfitters over the winter so stay tuned!

Did you know Cumberland has its own history book?!

Recently published as part of a series of books about America’s amazing small towns written by local experts. With extensive photographs provided by the local library and descendants of the first  pioneers to settle the land here and anecdotes, both myth and legend, this book takes some 140 years of history and condenses it into 120 thrilling pages. Authored by Brent T. Peterson, “Cumberland; The Island City” is now being sold online and in local book stores.

Find it here on Amazon. Or visit the Cumberland Chamber of Commerce to purchase.
