we stopped for cocktails and dinner. From the minute we entered, we were greeted by friendly staff. The bar is comfortable with a nearby wood fire. Dinner was very good. We had the fried mozzarella appetizer, followed by a NY strip and Mushroom Ravioli. Everything was very good. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I hope they expand their dinner... More

The White Oak Grill at the Chippewa Retreat Resort just gets better. This place has been open about four months now and friends and I find ourselves driving 25 miles each way every week to enjoy the culinary experience. It is on a par with Jacobi's of Hazelhurst for quality of food. The preparation and presentation is outstanding. They have... More

Every once in awhile you find a place where the owners really care about what is going on. This is such a place. Comfy, luxurious lodging and a fine culinary treat. The staff is incredible from the Chef to the book keeper...who is a real doll.

The food was excellent in both quality as well as preparation. The atmosphere was beautiful, open and comfortable! A great place for either a romantic dinner or a drink with friends. It would be a fantastic venue for a large wedding.

If you are looking for a real treat this is it! My husband and I went to White Oak Grill, the restaurant in the Chippewa Retreat Resort and found it to be one of the best dining experiences up in the North Woods. The decor is very North Woods, with beamed ceilings and field stone fire places. It has a... More

Your grounds and new lodge are beautiful, but your White Oak Grill is exceptional. Wonderful food and staff. Well worth the 23 mile drive from Minocqua. Ate there a few years ago when you had someone else running your restaurant. What a pleasant surprise to walk into your new expanded building that can seat up to 350 guests. Dana, Vicki,... More

I traveled Up North to Manitowish Waters, WI as a little girl. This was the family's annual Summer vacation spot. Chippewa Retreat was previously Deer Park Lodge in the days I traveled Up North. My family never stayed there. As an adult, several years ago, I had the desire to visit the great North Woods again. I booked a stay... More

The resort has a spectacular setting and the peace and beauty there offer a perfect retreat and excellent opportunity to enjoy nature at it's best. The accommodations are beautifully decorated, with a spacious, cozy, and... More

Let me start by saying that someone had a vision of putting a luxury hotel/condo style/UP NORTH right along the Manitowish chain of lakes. This vision came through 10 fold with its attention to detail! The amenities, the cleanliness, the feeling of lodge/cabin escape is beyond belief. I took my 22 yo son and invited my Sister and her husband.... More
