The owners greet you personally and the condition of the room and amenities show that they take a personal interest in your comfort. They have restaurant opening and closing times posted and offered several suggestions for dining, tailored to my interests. Of course, one could stay here just a couple of days and eat at every single restaurant and cafe. This is a very small town.
Check out the historic and authentic general store, over 100 years in operation.
The room and bed were very comfortable. Nice decor, though it is moose-oriented at the "elk" horn lodge. :) The owners are BIKER friendly and supply bike towels in every room (car owners and snow mobilers would find them handy, too). Just ask if you need more. The wifi signal is powerful, which was a plus for using Talkatone. There is NO cell signal anywhere in town. So plan on using one of the pay phones around town or using a wifi phone app on a smart phone.
At just under $100 with the tax figured in, this was a fair price for the high season in this area.
