Latest Snowmobile Trail Report

Rain and Warm…

March 6, 2017

Today’s forecast is 50 with rain, tomorrow in the 40’s, unless something drastic comes through I think we have seen the end of the season. I do want to thank everyone who stayed at the Great Northern this winter and those that visited the Wolf’s Den. We continue to meet new groups of people every year and of course we have those that have supported us over the years. The friendships formed through snowmobiling are as important to us as the business we operate. Thank you to everyone for another year of great memories! If the big snow storm arrives in March you will hear it here first.

Thank you again,

Eric Behnke & Staff

Wedding Fun in the Northwoods

Loved the Great Northerner. My cousin got married in the back and the staff was awesome and making the stay personal. Bar was a lot of fun and breakfast did the trick. Would recommend 2nd floor for vehicle noise.

We had to stay here due to sell outs further north but were not disappointed. The rooms were big and clean. The hotel has a beautiful sitting area with Wi fi. Our room was not updated but it appears that they are in the process of doing so. The hotel is right on the ATV/Snowmobile Trail.

"A Very Nice Stay"

Good price, very large, nice room. I would stay here again. The area has lots to see and do. This facility has everything needed for large or small groups. The staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed our stay and have nothing bad to say about this place. I recommend it.
