          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.More

          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...More

          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,
