Place is great, we come up every year and stay at alpen Inn. I realized though, that with the large amount of people we come up with (20-25) we can find a better deal in other lodges. Alpen fits under 10 so we rent 3 units and there are no discounts for lift tickets with a large group, as we were told. Might need to rethink about better pricing with extremely large dedicated reservations

We stayed in the coziest condo called alpen 4. It is definitely dated, but everything was in great shape and it was the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. As a family, we decided it was more important to have the convenience of ski in/ski out location over the high end finishes and decor of a condo. Plus it was located right next door to the alpen Inn which was a great meeting place for lunch and takeout for dinner. The only downside was that the walls are a little thin, so we could here our neighbors coming and going.

Very nice as usual. In the other units there was a box fan so we didn't bring ours, however this did not have one so we borrowed one from family.

It was so nice & peaceful, & great to have no cell phone service,so no one at my job could contact me!..which was great on my part. Nice to have the deer in the back, & wild turkey's, but a suggestion for the bears checking our the garbage cans at night,a dumpster for the 8-plex unit would be great. I plan to make reservations this aug. 2011 ahead for next July 2012. I hope to get more swimming done at Lake Superior next year. I will definitely be back!!

For the most part we had a really good time. There were some issues with our accomodations that soured my opinions. Like the dead mouse in the bathroom and the "live mice that apparently took up residence behind the stove and kept the wife up all night freaking out due to the scratching in the walls.
Skiing was fun and the people that work for the lodge are wonderful. Everyone was very nice. My group of 50 people may be looking for a new location next year due to the mouse issue. Read more

We have not had such a complaint on this property before. Pest control was called immediately and has resolved the matter as well as an extra clean. We regret the experience but believe the matter has been resolved.
