This was my first visit to NFL but it will NOT be my last. The setting is gorgeous, the accommodations cozy and comfortable, the staff friendly, funny, personable, and very helpful, the ski trails superb and beautiful, and snow shoeing was also great. I'll be back in the winter time as well as in the summer and/or fall!

Room tip: Not all cabins have indoor bathrooms so if that is important to you, be sure to request one that does.

"Funny" is the watchword here at the NFL. Glad you enjoyed our quirky little spot in the woods. Thanks for reviewing. -Andy

Here's the bottom line: stay here! It's awesome. Andy does an amazing job keeping the cabins in beautiful shape. Hot tub and sauna are great. We were there for skiing and snowshoeing - miles of gorgeous trails right out of the cabin door. Augie serves the best home cooked food and takes great care of even the biggest groups. I'll be going back, for sure.

Fantastic trip for the 6th year in a row. Andy, August & Christine took care of us as always. The skiing and snowshoeing was superb! Hot tub, sauna & polar plunge take away all of the aches and pains of the 1st day of skiing to make everyday a fresh start. The Saturday night music was great fun yet again. Thanks again Andy, Augie & Christine!!!

MLK Rovers weekend wouldn't have become a super fine reality for 6 years running without you & Rob. Thank you both so much! See you next year. Be well, Andy

This resort is located in a breathtakingly beautiful part of northern MN. The skiing this year is fantastic and every twist and turn offers picture perfect winter scenery. As for the resort, it's clean and well kept. The lodge is warm and inviting. The sauna and polar plunge are a must! The staff is knowledgeable, caring and fun! The food is flavorful, hearty and homemade with love. Augie and his staff do an excellent job of presentation as well. Andy is a gracious host and loves to share stories and information about the area. Highly recommended winter vacation.

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!

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
