The beautiful 3,4,6 & 8 bedroom cabins range in size from 1400 sq ft to 5300 sq ft. Each cabin has a large "Great Room" with a gas fireplace and beautiful knotty pine interior for a wonderful "Northwood's" feel.

The kitchens are fully furnished and include a dishwasher, all cooking utensils, and an 8' long log table which offers ample meal space for everyone. All bedrooms have one queen bed with some of the larger bedrooms also having a twin over double bunk. All have central air and heat, with Wolf and the Big Timber cabins being completely handicapped accessible. Each cabin also includes a splendid view of the valley, including the Root River State Trail.
