We stayed here last month (12/2011) for our anniversary. We had an amazingly fun time. This place also runs a snowmobiling rental business. The equipment was surprisingly good. I heard that they had full gear, but I was skeptical. They really do. We were worried about it looking ok and stuff, but they had lots of gear including snowpants, very high quality gloves and boots, jackets, and some nice motorcycle helmets. The snowmobiles we were using were brand new Polaris ones and they also had a two person one that was awesome for a romantic ride to Big Springs (a must see).
We stayed in the hotel (I guess technically a motel), but we had friends that were there who were staying in the condos, so we got a taste of both. The condos are nicer and newer. They have a full kitchen, living room, half bath on main floor, private master downstairs w/ full bath and washer/dryer, and two big beds in a loft upstairs (queen, I think). These units would be perfect for a family. We had a lot of fun hanging out with our friends in the nice new hot tub.
Our room in the other building was quaint. It wasn't the nicest room ever, but it was private and romantic enough. It had a mini fridge, which wasn't working, but I can't count that against them because when I mentioned it to the staff, they gave me a key to the room next door until they had a chance to fix it so I could refrigerate the bottle of bubbly I brought. I received a call later that they had fixed it and moved the bottle over for me.
They have wireless internet, but we didn't use it much.
Honestly, one of the best things about our trip was that the staff was very helpful and accommodating. We would really enjoy going back.
