The road there was rough, so go during the day. If you are looking for a beautiful, remote place... this is it. The sauna was wonderful. The sauna would benefit from a stronger stove with more rocks. Would return!More

Thanks so much! The problem with that sauna is he built it out of log. They take forever to warm up in cold weather. Glad you enjoyed anyway. Thanks again, Andy
Definitely one of the best weekends of the winter. Both the skiing and the lodge were great. Andy was a wonderful host and really made everyone feel welcome. The cabins were very basic, but perfectly comfortable. Augie put together tasty meal after tasty meal. The polar plunge was addicting. Just a great place for a ski weekend.
What a nice surprise to get an NFL ski review with no snow in sight. You made my day! Hope you can make it up again this winter. Thanks much! -Andy
We've been enjoying NFL for 15 years. Best XC trails, great host, and love the outdoor hot tub. Enjoy family style dining. Live music on Saturday night by localThe artists is lots of fun and great for dancing.
Trails are classical, trees are tall pines and snow is ubiquitous. It's my favorite.
Always wonderful to get feedback from a longtime fan. Thanks so much! See you again and we'll work hard to keep it your "favorite." -Andy
Rarely have I had a weekend away that I came back feeling so refreshed, happy, and so looking forward to a repeat. Pack up a few things (most importantly you X-country skis and swim suit, and a beer or two or bottle of wine) and head a little over an hour past Duluth and get ready to enjoy every moment. The beautiful trails (through the woods with plenty of snow) for skiing would be enough to bring me back, but throw in , healthy and tasty prepared meals in a fun, friendly communal dinning hall, outside hot tub and sauna right next to the polar plunge, topped off with music and dancing on Saturday night, an easy going, responsive host and you can't miss. NFL is truly a vacation treasure!
Wow! You certainly made the NFL sound like heaven on earth. Thanks so much for your amazing reflections of the weekend. Do come back and "refresh" again anytime. -Andy
Beautiful ski trails.
Fun live music and dancing Sat night.
Fun group and warm and friendly hosts.
Only 4 hrs from the Twin Cities but I felt very much away for a break.
I will be back next year for sure.
Thanks so much Joe. It was great to have you here and I'll look forward to seeing you winter 2017! -Andy
We heard about NFL because my wife stayed here in the mid 1990s during the summertime. We were not going to be taking a warm trip, so cold it was. Everything was awesome! Food, trails, hospitality! Andy and the staff were awesome!
Thanks so much for your "cold" review. Looking forward to having both of you up many more times in the summers and winters to come. - Andy
