We spend a week at the Beacons using time share points through Interval World. The resort was not crowded since we were in between the Fall Colors and the Snow Activities seasons. We had a one bedroom unit that overlooked the grounds. It was very clean and certainly comfortable. The décor was a bit dated but the furnishings were quite... More

My husband and I just got married in Minocqua. While we did have our wedding party, and a few others stay there, we thanked our lucky stars we decided to have the rest of the wedding, and most of our guests, off site. From the word "go" we had issues with our event (essentially a block of rooms to manage).... More

We stayed in a three bedroom condominium while in town for a wedding. We didn't have time to use any of the additional amenities such as boat/canoe rental or the pool so I cannot comment on those items. Our room was nice, while it probably needed a little updating. One bedroom has two twin beds (mattresses have probably seen newer... More

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

I sorry that your stay did not go as you had planned. When the reservation was made we were not made aware that anyone would be in a wheelchair or any special accommodations were needed. If we would have known prior to your arrival we certainly would have made accommodations based on that fact. However, I was able to put... 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!

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.
