Exactly what we needed
We chose to to sleep at the Nordic Inn and spend our days ice fishing and skating nearby. Reception was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and bigger then what I expected. The restaurant and lounge area was closed for our stay (opening again when the snowmobile trails open) but it looked nice and I’ve heard good things. Dorset is a beautiful town and the Nordic Inn was close to everything it has to offer. We felt totally safe and comfortable. The room had a fridge, microwave and small tv which was perfect for what we needed for our stay. I would choose the Nordic Inn again and recommend it to others who are looking for a cozy place to sleep and refresh for another day of adventures in the north.
