We stayed in one of the suites for a 3 day trip cross-county skiing between Christmas and New Years. The location was good for us, since it was centrally located to the ski areas we went to at Winter Park in Minocqua and the Anvil Trail in the national forest east of Eagle River. It was bitterly cold and the... More

The "condo" we rented was OK, but certainly nothing to write home about. the carpet was old and had a bleach stain on it. Some of the dishes had dried food on them when I took them out of the cabinet, and the information given at check in had the check out time listed incorrectly so in addition to having... More

Where do I begin???? My husband and I will never stay at The Beacons again and you would be wise not to waste your money at this ‘resort’. We rented a condo for a week. We originally wanted one of the townhouses; they were unavailable, but were promised this condo was a replicate of the townhouse. The bathroom off the... More

In general, I would recommend The Beacons of Minocqua. The resort has many amenities, which include a nice size indoor pool, game room, and deck for viewing the lake. We rented a condo, it was clean and neat, the bedroom and bath of good size and the open kitchen/family room adequate and comfortable. The only drawback was that it was... More

We had a 2 bedroom condo unit on the 2nd floor where 5 of us stayed comfortably. There was a great view of the lake. The only downside was that they advertised that Wi-Fi was available throughout the property but it was virtually non-existent. It only worked about 10% of the time and was very slow. We had to find... More

This resort was clean and comfortable. The pool area was very nice as was the gaming area. I enjoyed time in the loft reading a book, my husband relaxed in the sitting area off the game room and my daughter sunbathed on the sun deck. We enjoyed a picnic in the gazebo and sat by the lake. We also took... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom lodge room with 4 people. Lots of storage space which made it deem bigger, and it was clean. We wanted the 2 bedroom but it was booked. When we checked in found out 2 bedroom was only booked 2 out of the 4 nights we were there, were not even given option to rent it... More

Little or no WiFi. We could not stay here and work! Limited and poor TV reception. Outdated resort. In this day and age a resort must have digital TV and WiFi Porches need sanding as they are rough and full of splinters. The setting is beautiful and close to town with the bearskin trail. Dead cut up trees are down... More

Our family (4 adults/2 children) stayed here for a week on an interval exchange. The unit was clean(when we checked in), well laid out, well furnished, and roomy with a nice balcony overlooking the lake. The grounds were lovely and well maintained. The boys enjoyed the fishing dock and boats. The indoor pool was very good. However, the internet didn't... More

Loved everything about the resort. Most importantly the rooms were super clean, updated, and well laid out. We had a cabin in the woods and enjoyed watching the deer from our windows. The downside of the the resort was the staff that did not seem knowledgable of the resort nor the Minocqua area. If you rent a boat go over... More
