If you want a couple of days or a week, this is the place to go. We have only been there in the winter months, once in March and the last one this December, but we have no doubt that it is great no matter what the weather. Secluded, comfortable, great scenery, wonderful skiing and hiking and even dog sled rides. Also, pet friendly! We had one of the romantic cabins and it was fantastic. Fed and watched the pine grosbeaks, chickadees, blue jays, gray jays, red squirrels and deer. The huge windows were great for bird watching. Didn't have enough snow to ski this last time we went, but were able to hike most trails and worked up quite an appetite. The lodge has great food...have only had lunch and appetizers so far, but heard the breakfasts were very hearty and good too. Very good naturalist program also. We went on an animal footprint hike through the woods and learned lots of interesting, historical facts about the area. The staff was very helpful and friendly and took care of all of our needs. It takes a little bit to get there, but well worth the trip. Can't wait to go back!
