The Northwood Hotel

The Northwood Hotel was born with the remodel in 1928 of the former Mckinnon House and was considered one of the most advanced and luxurious hotels in the country at the time.


  The Ballroom at the Northwood Hotel was the site of important meetings, events and other gatherings of the community. The ballroom still exists today but is owned by Cadillac Family Pharmacy because the building was divided when Stanley Stephan purchased the North 28' and Ira Sandelius purchased the South 43' on March 6, 1968. The hotel had been owned by Mr and Mrs George Kelly. Many of the original panels and the chandelier can be seen on display at the Wexford County Historical Society Museum.





The ESCAPE BAR is owned by lifetime area resident Lonnie Burkett.   Lonnie comes from a well known history of providing superb customer service and is well known by many in the area from a background in floorcovering sales and service.
