I forgot to mention that a restautant on the ski hill reopened this year called the Alpen Inn. Great food with a gourmet flare. There is also the Big Powderhorn lunch room and bar as well as the Caribou Bar & Restaurant on the hill. Around the corner is Pub & Grub which has a great fish fry Fridays. The Big Powderhorn free bus will take you to any of these and back to your chalet, so you can have that last beer before hitting the road.
In town there are many restaurants, and just across the boarder is Hurley, Wi, about 4 miles away. Let's just say you wouldn't bring the kids to the bars in Hurley, whereas the restaurant/bars in Ironwood and on the hill are OK for all ages.
Met two different couples that honeymooned at Big Powderhorn in the Fall. It's perfect for an off season honeymoon.
