AAA Inspector Notes
This is one of the original hotels built by railroad magnate J.J. Hill to provide lodging for turn-of-the-century visitors from the East wishing to explore the park. It still serves that purpose. Train service makes scheduled stops here. Accommodations include converted cabooses, locomotives and cabins. This is a rustic experience for the hiker, fly-fisherman or casual visitor. Outdoor dining is offered. Did not meet all AAA rating requirements for viewports/peepholes in some guest rooms at time of last evaluation on 04/20/2017. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.

Lots of Atmosphere If You...
Pros: The location had a lot of atmosphere with cabooses as rooms for family groups. I stayed at the main lodge. Good food in the restaurant.
Cons: Nothing to do except walk around. No TV or cellphone connection, but you come to get away from all that. Largely favored by cross country skiers in winter.

Nice to get away from...
Pros: No cell phone communication, no TV, no internet access. Great place to talk with spouse and other guests. If you are a train buff it is very good watching.
Cons: The food was expensive and not well prepared. Since this is located more than 25 miles from the nearest restaurant, you don't have a choice though.

Interesting stay and the staff...
Pros: Facility is meant to reproduce vintage atmosphere and style; it accomplishes that well, so was enjoyable to be taken 'back in time.'
Cons: While trying to achieve demands of the modern traveler by providing wireless connection, we were unable to get connected in our room. We were able to get online in the lower level pub.
