My wife and I stayed for one week in January and had a great time. Rooms were clean and comfy. Service is awesome, rooms were cleaned and fresh towels each day. Perfect location when snowmobiling. Great food close by and gas station close by. Would recommend to anyone.

Our group of friends visited here between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3rd of '08. It was a memorial trip for our dear friend that lost his life while snowmobiling up there the very same weekend of '07.

McGowans has a nice restaurant, rooms are clean. Not fancy but neither is the price. Hot water, good heat, just the basics we wanted. Staff was very friendly. Right on trail.
