Second time this year we stayed in a cabin. Last summer and now last week in the winter. We stayed for three nights. Our cabin was snowed in and a "tunnel" was dug to the front door. a very nice employee made sure it wasn't slippery every morning. The cabin is on the simple side. Politely called "rustic". I would...

We had a fantastic time here at the lodge. View from our cabin overlooking the mountain was stunning and we were fortunate to experience full moon shiny down the hills so brightly at night. Everything is prefect, except for the in room wifi connectivity is constantly fell off and slow. I ended up using my own data network. We also...

I chose the Tamarack Lodge as my accommodations for my first try at cross country skiing. The lodge and cabins are within walking or skiing distance of the Nordic Ski center office. I was able to rent equipment and take lessons without driving anywhere else. The snow level was historical, so you did have to trudge up the hills and...

We are regular visitors to Tamarack and often have issues with the lodging that we brush aside due to it's spectacular location. Things like poor/lack of weather stripping on doors, shabby furniture in the "historic" cabins. However, our last visit with a check-in on Feb 26,had an issue that could not be ignored. We knew there was a large snowpack...

We stay here regularly and the cabins and staff are always first rate. The location to xc ski is the best in the state, set tracks around the lakes are very well groomed with big sno cats. The altitude is high so the snow is usually great. The staff always goes out of their way to be helpful, and the...

We stay at Tamarack Lodge Resort any chance we get. One of our favorite places . We normally rent a cabin that faces the lakes. Sitting on the porch in the morning having coffee is wonderful. Beware of bears as we normally see one each trip. If you can, time your trip for early October to see the leaves change...

I took my husband and 9 year old son for their first vacation in the snow. We had an adorable cabin with all the amenities of a high class hotel. They have very friendly and accommodating staff. I would definitely go back. If you like cross country skiing, you can't beat it. The groomed trails are right there.
