We've been coming to NFL on and off for almost 30 years and recently have been going up twice a year. Andy and Lura, the new owners, are taking loving care with this marvelous old gem. They are great hosts, and the food is wonderful. Andy has started bringing in live music to the lodge on some weekends...fun local bands from Duluth and the deep woods all over the Arrowhead. And the skiing! 20+ miles of impeccably groomed trails, for all skill levels. The trails wind through virgin pines, across streams (with bridges of course!), through primeval spruce forest...on and on they go. It is a wonderful, relaxing experience and you can top it off with a sauna and (if you wish) a lake plunge at the end of the day...or a sedate soak in the hot tub.
