The Timberwolf Inn built in 1995, is the creation of Brenda and Tim Schmitz of Marcell Minnesota. Starting in the restaurant and golf course business in 1981 in Neillsville Wisconsin, and then moving on to Marshfield Wisconsin,they came back to the Northwoods, where they had first met in 1975.Wanting to live and raise their three daughters in the area they loved, they returned, bringing with them the cuisine they had perfected over their nearly 14 years in the restaurant business.The inn is a log sided building with seating for 54 people in the dining room. We also have a small lounge with a Bartender on duty to mix your favorite drinks the way you want them. Sorry,there are no pool tables or dart boards. The lounge looks out over a large deck, where you can relax with a drink and take in the outdoors, or throw a game of horse shoes. Along with the restaurant and lounge we have twelve comfortable, cozy rooms. 


They are spacious 13’x24′ rooms with two queen-size log beds, local television, phone, and a bathtub-shower.With over a 100 lakes within a 20 mile radius, there is no shortage of things to do. You can go to your choice of lakes and catch any thing from Sunfish to Walleye to Muskies. A lot of lakes also have tremendous Small Mouth Bass fishing. There are hiking trails and canoe routes nearby. With large tracts of National Forest, Minnesota State, and Itasca County land, there is plenty to explore.In the fall the grouse hunting can be the best you will find anywhere. See the fall colors at the end of September and the beginning of October.


There are fall color tours, and the colors alone are worth a trip to the Northwoods.Black Bear hunting has also become popular. Deer hunting starts in November, but look at the second or third week as we are usually booked each year with the same hunters for the opener.Snowmobiling and cross country skiing starts in December along with the snow. Book ahead and of course always think snow. Ice fishing is another sport that is growing fast.So it doesn’t matter the season or the weather there is always something to do at the Edge Of The Wilderness, in northern Minnesota.
