It's a very nice facility with a bar and restaurant...beautiful lodge, very large hot tub. Have stayed here on several occasions and been happy with everything except for one pet peeve. You have to be in the lodge to have any kind of Wi-Fi Internet access. Outside of the lodge at the cabins and logdominiums the Internet is very poor....

Thank you for this review. We're glad to know there were many aspects of your trip that you enjoyed. I understand the frustration with wifi, it is something we are working on.

Was a nice place years ago. Showing it's age. Mid week staffing is not adequate. For your money not worth it. Pics I added are 36 hours after snow storm ended. 78 year old gentlemen could not get his car out. Guest had to dig him out. Manager never responded after I spoke to service desk.

FANTASTIC Food & Beer in the pub. Great hot tub/pool area. Kids love the game room. Lodgedominiums are roomy, clean and comfortable. Rafting trips are a blast! The guides are knowledgeable and we feel comfortable with them. A fun summer getaway for the entire family. Close to hiking spots and swimming holes. Beautiful forest setting.

A friendly and welcoming staff that clearly enjoys what they do... making your stay as memorable as possible. Traditional cozy rustic ambiance. The on-site brewery makes fresh, great-tasting craft beers. We consider the trip our first "annual" snowmobiling vacation at Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort.
