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 in every room (and new mattresses !). They have the cleanest rooms I've seen (even some big name hotels are questionable), prices are very reasonable; close to good food, gas, and the highway; but still quiet enough for a goods night rest.
It's difficult to satisfy everyone in a group of 12+, but we all agree this is the ONLY place to stay.
