The Beacons is a great place to stay no matter your group or size. I have entertained both family and friends as well as a work group and have no complaints. Our stays have always been in the condos which include a full kitchen and fireplace. I even stayed in the studio this year and was not disappointed. We have... More

I stayed up there over the New Year with my kids. We brought their sleds and they had fun finding hills and playing in the snow and around the resort. They swan in the pool the rest of the time. Enjoyed my visit with friends and their children who could also use the facility. We stayed in unit 249. Very... More

Thank you for your review. Due to the resort being so far out there have been times when the phone lines do cut out. I'm positive the front desk staff would not intentionally hang up on a guest. As a timeshare owner here at the resort I am disappointed that you felt the need to post this review rather than... More

Came up to snowmobile but unfortunately the weather warmed and all snow melted. We enjoyed our 1 bedroom unit. Comfortable king size bed with nice fluffy pillows. The kitchen was one of the best stocked we have ever seen. Cookware you could actually use, baking pans, blender, decent sized cutting board, coffee filters, etc. We did not need anything we...

The Beacons of Minocqua allowed us a wonderful winter vacation. We were able to cross country ski and skate on the lake just feet from our spacious room. Our 2 bedroom condo was well appointed and had everything we needed for a week of cross country skiing, skating and snow shoeing. The indoor pool, sauna, and hot tub were relaxing... More

If you place a value on peace and quiet, as I do, this is the place for you. This resort is hard to find: a right, a left, another right, and another left and you're there...or possibly lost All the way you have to watch out for two dopey semi-domesticated mooching deer. Navigating this at night on the road with... More

3 generations of my family visit Minocqua annually in the fall and due to the size of our family we choose to stay at the Beacons in the 2 and 3 bedroom condo units. These fit our large family perfect and we don't have to be right on top of one another. The views of the lake and wildlife are... More

Very nice Northern Wisconsin condo, right on the lake across the bay from downtown Minocqua. We stayed here in a 2 bedroom condo during the annual Beef-A-Rama weekend. It was very clean, very scenic and truly, Northern Wisconsin. Our unit was on the second floor and although there is an elevator, you'll probably need to navigate stairs with luggage to... More

Resort is older,but has most all the amenities you would expect from a north woods resort-pool,fishing,boating, pool and hot tub .Most of the condos,including the one we stayed in,have a lake view.We enjoyed our stay and will likely stay again in the future.

We stayed here 4 days for the past three years. Four of us come up to the Minocqua area every fall for a golfing getaway. The prices while not cheap are reasonable. This 2014 we rented a three bedroom unit from Sept. 8 to Sept 12. The weather turned ugly and we were only able to golf on Sept 9.... More

I’m sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. Unfortunately the weather in Northern Wisconsin is very unpredictable, especially as we get into the fall months. We do have a 7 day cancelation policy during most of the year and a 30 cancelation policy from Memorial Day until Labor Day as it is stated when making the reservation. As... More
