We had a great time! Beautiful setting, very friendly staff, nice skiing. The cabins were modest, but had what you needed. The skiing was pretty entry level, which was great for me, but a more advanced skier might want more challenge.

Thanks for your positive review. Glad you enjoyed your skiing experience. While the level of trail difficulty is mostly modest, we like to think their beauty and uncrowded character makes them some of the best classic trails in the upper Midwest. Hope we'll see you again soon. -Andy

what a great get-away! Loved the skiing, the meals and the authentic Finnish sauna, followed--yes-- by a dip in Lake Gegoka! This is a good place to come to get away from the pressing irritations of life in the 21st century,

Went up for the first time this Jan 2017 and fell in love with this lodge. Meals were excellent and the after ski fun is the best too, outdoor hot tubs and sauna complete with a polar plunge option. This past weekend we had the full moon to boot. They even arranged evening music for us on Saturday night, excellent talent right in our lodge, wonderful to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and hear great music. The skiing is simply magical, its all classic trails thru beautiful pine forests. This is a place that will become a favorite the first time you go up there. Enjoy!!

Room Tip: Some cabins have water and bathrooms some do not. Be sure a check if you have a preference.

As usual it was a cozy stay again at National Forest Lodge... with beautiful skiing, good food and friends. Can't be beat! This time we rented the White Pines cabin and it was ideal. Beautiful, clean, warm... loved every minute!

We may try for a second weekend this winter! See you soon!

Love the good, hot, meals & not cleaning up after eating.
The classic XC ski trails are without parallel with the snow covered trees completely canopying the trail in some areas. I can stop at any point on the trails and be in awe of the forest.

Room Tip: using a fitted sheet on the bed under your sleeping bag makes it much nicer - less noisy, less slippery.
