I had this hotel assigned to me in that there was a craft expo in Little Falls, and this was the best close to Camp Ripley. It is a full 3 hour drive from MSP on good roads. Easy assess from the main highway into Baxter. I was given a 3rd floor room and told the Hotel is ALL NON-SMOKING....

Michael, overall your scores were very good and I thank you for that. I would like to address a few of your smoking concerns. I am probably the #1 worst hotel manager/owner an in-room smoker ever wants to meet. Smoking in a non-smoking hotel in my book is a mortal sin and disrespects myself and my hotel worse than any...

From the time we checked into this hotel everything was top notch. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The 8 and 11 year old boys thoroughly enjoyed the water park. The breakfast was very good. The only negative I could mention is that the wifi is a little weak-kept getting kicked off.

Thank you for the great comments! You saw a little of "The Magic!" I always speak about! I've always thought that when kids spend good quality time with their families they are forming memories that last a lifetime! It makes us proud to be even a small part of it. It's a great staff that makes for the clean rooms...

As you walk in you smell cedar as if you were going in to a sauna. Nice. Helpful desk clerk. Wonderful room with comfortable beds. My lads were highly impressed. The pool/water park was great fun and my boys had a lot of fun. The desk clerk recommended a nearby restaurant when I asked about where we could get a...

What a wonderful way to come back from a few days away from the property and read your comments. "Spotlessly Clean & Wonderful Staff" are the highest compliments a guest can pay us so thank you very much. It's the staff you complimented that makes it all possible and we are blessed to have each and every one of them....

This little gem of a find blew my mind. We usually stay at Grand View Lodge (another nice property) when in the area, but decided to give this place a try. I wasn't sure how good of a place it would be for the price, but our stay was so wonderful it dethroned the awesome GVL as our favorite vacation...

Stayed here on business on our sponsor's dime. Great bed, quiet rooms, quality breakfast, friendly staff. Rustic motif is consistent with woodsy theme of area fishing and recreation. VERY satisfactory!

Thank you! We're very proud of the Up North feel of our property and very happy you enjoyed it. The beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers with pillow tops and the guest comments have been like yours, fantastic. (I even bought one for my home) The biggest credit goes to the friendly staff you acknowledged though. Without them we...

Sharon, I was overjoyed and proud to read your comments when I got back from vacation this morning.

This is probably one of the cutest hotels I've stayed in recently. When you walk in, you notice how open it feels and it really does look like a rustic lodge.

Stayed in the 1st weekend of March, 2016. Awesome property, great rooms and a great little water-park. The breakfast is above average and there are plenty of great places to eat close by. The area is great for shopping as well (the original Fleet Farm store is across the street). Rooms are a good value, spacious and clean. I can't...
