Minocqua, Wisconsin Resorts

Minocqua, Wisconsin Resorts
The northern Wisconsin city of Minocqua has been called a lot of things: "A Favorite Family Getaway" by Midwest Living Magazine and "Best Place to Live & Fish" by Field and Stream magazine. Minocqua is surrounded by lakes, rivers and streams and forests, which create an ever-present north woods setting. Many people who travel to Minocqua choose to stay in one of the resorts in the city.

Nitschke's Northern Resort

The word "access" is synonymous with Nitschke's Northern Resort, which is on two lakes--Minocqua and Kawaguesaga--and along the Bearskin Trail. The resort features 18 cabins that include three to five bedrooms apiece. Each is fully equipped with a kitchen and living or dining room. Guests will find a coin-operated laundry facility on the resort's grounds. Fishing and swimming are popular activities among resort guests, who also will find four fire pits they can use. Although guests can cook all of their meals inside their cabins, some choose to head into Minocqua and grab a burger at Minocqua Brewing Company or pasta at Mama's Restaurant.

Coachlight Resort

The Coachlight Resort is a mile from town but offers guests the chance to feel like they're in the middle of the north woods. Located on a chain of five lakes, the resort includes six cottages with one to three bedrooms. High-speed, wireless Internet is standard in every cottage, and five of the six have either a porch or deck. Birds like ducks, herons, and loons are common sights from the resort's shoreline, and swimming and boating are two ways for guests to pass the time. Guests can cook in their cabins or head into Minocqua and hit the Thirsty Whale, a bar and grill.
