Obnoxious service. Cheerful one minute, viciously angry the next. Miles to alternatives, but well worth the drive. Had a similar experience to Judith M. and can't believe they can be so blatantly dishonest.

Loved this place. My husband and I were in northern Minnesota looking for a photo-op of the autumn color. This place is definitely off the radar. The sign is small and poorly lit, so you must be looking for it, although it is only less than a mile from Interstate 35. Very clean, very remodeled, very nice owners who are... More

Be sure to get an email or written confirmation for the agreed price. By phone, I was given a discount for a 2 night stay rather than just one night. When we arrived they argued, "We never give that price!" I didn't have it in writing so i just paid the regular price. Other than that, our 6 person cottage... More

We arrived late at night. Owner was very courteous even though I am sure we woke him. Room was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the towels and linen fairly new and good quality. The room was reasonably priced - well worth the cost. I would stay there again and highly recommend it.

Owners of the small motel/Inn were extremely rude. If you are in a wheel chair, or have children with you, DO NOT STAY HERE! The normal in and out activities that come with children are not welcome. Wheel chair users beware. The Northwoods Inn considers the dirt off the pavement in their parking lot, to be the fault of the... More

We'd stayed at the North Woods several times over the years and had a great time. Last summer we went back. The place had new owners and they were nasty! They had overbooked the cabin we had and so they did everything possible to get rid of us. One evening when we were sitting on the porch with my mom,... More

I have already commented as much as I would like on these prejudiced individuals! That is being as professional as I can be after reading what they posted! Still people will be mean and nasty no matter how much our country progresses or in their case degresses! My husband and I plan to sell this inn due to individuals like... More

We stayed one night at the Northwoods Inn. The room was old but comfortable, large and clean. It had been recently updated with a nice flat screen tv. The air conditioning was old and very loud and noisy. If you read the owners manual, they scare you with a lot of rules. We couldn't help notice that there is to... More

Loved our stay until we got a call a couple of hours after we checked out saying we had ruined all the towels in our room. The towels were fine when we left and we did not even use each towel. The owner was so upset I offered to pay for the towels. Super bummed because the room was cute... More

Our family stayed in three different rooms in this wonderful inn. We were in town for Barnum's high school graduation and the high school is within walking distance. Beautiful view of woods and Bear Lake. Rooms were spotless, beds and linens laundry fresh. (I do check mattresses and you needn't be wary of staying here!) Shane and Penny are friendly,... More

Our family does an annual motorcyle ride to the Barnum area yearly (sometimes 2x year)to visit family gravesites. We've stayed at the Northwoods Inn for 4 years; first year was before Shane and Penny took over - it was a little run down then. But they have updated the rooms with a 'homey' decor - not the same hotel decor... More
