This resort is located on lake Minocqua, and has nice open areas for horse shoes, volleyball, or nature walks. The Beacons offers 1,2, & 3 bedroom condos, as well as log homes. We've been coming since 1992 and still love the activities offered, pontoon rides, arts & crafts, and hot dogs & smores. After a long day of fishing or... More

On Lake Minocqua. We had a 2-bedroom condo and loved it. Newly updated, 2 BR + 1.5 bath. Great pool area. Many options for boat rentals. Great activities for kids. You can watch the lake and the ski show from the large boathouse. Fish off the dock. Great location next to Bearskin State Trail. Cheap laundry machines. Fire pits at... More

We were visiting the area for a family gathering for a weekend. The family stayed at their cabin but we got a hotel because my husband uses a wheelchair. At the time we made reservations they assured us they could accommodate him. But, because we were only staying 2 nights, they had to give us a different room the second... More

We rented a pontoon for a large group of 15. When we arrived they said our boat was out of commission. They said they could not contact me ahead of time since they did not have my phone #. I found this astounding because they had my name, address, drivers license # and CC # on file for the rental.... More

You need to spray the weeds and sweep the steps leading to the lake. Very surprised by the poor condition of the steps. Otherwise, well kept up for an aging property. Great location, nice people working there, great fire pits!

Ben Z, Manager at The Beacons of Minocqua, responded to this review

Thank you for the response. The steps have been swept and weeds pulled and sprayed. The steps are of concern and are being addressed. There are many projects to accomplish here at The Beacons and the steps are one of them. Again thank you for the review and we look forward to seeing you again soon. More

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
