In my 40 years of domestic and foreign business travels I have stayed in many hotels and motels. Some were excellent, some were nice and some were not so nice. Now my wife
and I travel for enjoyment. By far the best
establishment we have stayed in is the Northwoods Inn and Cottages in Barnum, MN. Not only is it relaxing but fantastically spotless. Shane and Penny Shol run a tight ship that they should be proud of. We recommend it highly and stay there whenever we go through the area."

Testimonial:  My wife and I found this beautiful little Inn while traveling through MN. The Inn keepers, Shane and Penny, are some of the best people you will ever meet. Down to earth and pleasant. If you're planning a trip to this part of MN than you owe it to youself to stop in and stay for a night or two...perhaps longer. Thanks for taking care of us...... Brian & Renee, Titusville FL
