We are from the Minneapolis area and took the four hour drive up to the Wilderness not knowing what to expect (only from what we had heard and read on line). Well we were not only impressed with the course but the facilities are top notch and most importantly the staff was the best we have ever seen. From the... More

If you are not a gambler, there is golf and fishing, water sports etc. Choices of restaurants to have your meals at reasonable prices. The scenery... More

Well kept Lodge and Casino on the south shores of Lake Veramilion with clean, comfortable rooms, freindly accomodating staff. Our room (530) had a nice, albeit narrow view of Lake Vermilion with a small deck. Lodge had nice accomodations, good restaurants and a two level casino to boot where my son came away with $70 more than he arrived with,... More

We stayed here for a weekend while snowmobiling. My husband booked a non smoking room with 2 queen beds online. When we arrived we were given a smoking room and told that booking online "doesn't work" and we should have called them. ?!?!? There were no other rooms available, so we had to take the horrible smelling smoking room. The... More

Good morning: We are sorry to hear about your online booking problem. We always try to accommodate nonsmoking room requests even if it was not reserved that way in our system. However, if we are extremely busy, it is not always possible to get a nonsmoking room. If your husband has a print out of his reservation, I would like... More
