BOXCAR ACCOMMODATIONS


Northern Rail is open year 'round with a unique setting for you to enjoy the special beauty of each season in Northern Minnesota. Take in views of the rugged Northwoods where we are treated to regular visits from deer, birds, squirrels and our special woodpecker friends! If you are really lucky you might get a glimpse of other impressive creatures of the North Shore like a bear, an eagle, a moose or even a wolf!

Accommodations consist of 13 welcoming bed & bath guest rooms and 3 full car suites in authentic train boxcars. Each room is one of several themes - Victorian, Oriental, Safari, Lighthouse, Fishing, Bear (not bare!) and Moose.

Northern Rail is handicap accessible and is a smoke-free, pet-free environment. All of our rooms have views of the rugged wilderness and tranquil serenity of the Northwoods!
We provide our guests with a continental breakfast, summertime campfires (as permitted), a lending library of books, games, toys and even DVD's (all rooms have TV's with built-in DVD players). We have snowshoes available in the winter for our guests to use. For those guests who wish to use their laptop computer or phones to keep in touch with home or work we have WiFi available in our lobby and in-room.

We have two rate seasons - Summer and Winter.  Summer Rate Season starts the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and runs through Mid-October (MEA weekend).  Winter Rate Season starts Mid-October (Sunday of MEA weekend) and runs
through the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend. 

Our room rate are the same 7 days a week (no higher weekend rates).  Any coupons, special or discounts are available Sunday thru Thursday only.
