Love this place sooo much! Andy and Lura have a treasure in this intimate resort.
This is our 3rd trip, and the cross country skiing has always been fantastic with groomed trails through the Superior National Forest. Snowshoeing trails are also very nearby and make sure to notice the Sasquatch crossing area. Our cabin was fantastic, toasty and very near the hot tub! Although we didn't use the sauna this year, we look forward to next year as we are already booked. Also, thanks to Auggie and crew for the great meals. Really enjoy the Saturday night entertainment as well. Thanks for continuing to be caretakers of NFL and sharing your piece of heaven on earth with us!
Judy and Monty

Warm people, warm buildings, warmly appreciated. Visited this place for the first time last weekend. Very enjoyable! There are so many nice touches...from excellent food to feeling right at home to trails groomed frequently. The buildings are warm and clean. Entertainment and options for relaxing are many. You will feel like part of a community right away and will want to come back!

Room Tip: Different options..with and without electricity, varying sizes. Privacy is considered in all instances. Prices vary.

Thanks so much for staying with us and your positive feedback. We're a small resort and, as a result, we can offer an intimate experience for our guests to meet new people if they choose and have a completely relaxed getaway. Hope to see you again. -Andy

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.
