Great place to stay in Minocqua,right on the water front and offers boat slips. Certain rooms are noisy, close to Hwy 51. The staff is very friendly, and serves breakfast, has an indoor pool and whirlpool. We have stayed there before and will do it again. Total relaxing north woods experience.

Thank you for such a nice review on our page. Unfortunately, I believe you were writing a review for The Pointe. The Beacons of Minocqua is not located off of Hwy 51 and is nestled on the western shore of Lake Minocqua. We would love for you to come stay with us here at The Beacons. Our rooms are quiet...

We had went here for an overnight stay very pricey. Lots of spiders, spider webs while walking the property. They did not do treatments for bugs/webs etc. The view was beautiful, the docks needed some upgrading. There were only 2 that were new. The others old and very unsafe! We got there around 12:30pm, they said our room wasn't ready.... More

Thank you for writing a review of The Beacons of Minocqua. With The Beacons being located in the great Northwoods we are surrounded by all kinds of animals and insects. The bats are very important to the Northwoods ecosystem and eat a lot of the insects. The spiders are also very helpful to combat the insect populations. We do have... More

Overall, we were very happy with The Beacons. It is a sprawling property, so upon arrival, wayfinding on the twisting driveways was a bit confusing, as was the location of the main office. That said, once there, they checked us in quickly, and had a good system for truck, trailer and sled parking, with great access to the local trail... More

My family and I have been coming to the Beacons every July since 1991. (I think that says a lot right there.) I have incredibly fond memories of the Beacons and Minocqua in general. I am looking forward to this year as my husband and I will be bringing our 2 month old son this year. The resort is very... More

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
