A 5 Star Resort with a 5 Star Touch. Amazing facility from the cabin we stayed in to the beach with its ammenities (raft to swim out to and dive off of, paddle boats, kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards - loved them), tennis courts, horse shoes, shuffle board and their very own bar off of the beach.

This is our third time staying at Brekke's Resort and as always Carol and Dan go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect and that you fully enjoy your stay. Had to mix some business with this trip so didn't get to use all the amenities the way we would of liked to. We are in the... More

Dan and Carol are great hosts. This is the perfect rustic setting for a northwoods retreat from the daily grind. Detail to cleanliness and convenience is their top priority. If your looking for luxury probably not your kind of resort. This is classic northwoods rustic setting and get ready for sure peace and a quiet.

Thank you so much for your review! And looking through our reviews I see that you are the first to give us a second review, so thanks for both. In particular thanks this time for your comments on the cleanliness of our resort and the variety of activities we offer. I would agree with your advice for those looking for... More

First of all, daily summer prices are NOT listed on their website and so it is misleading. It only shows weekly rates in summer and we didn't know actual daily rate of $104 until after we put down deposit and arrived there. For this price the cabin was not worth it. My longtime friend and I like to take a... More

You never like to hear that guests did not have a good experience with you. Both of these ladies clearly feel the same way as their reviews are nearly identical. So if nothing else it's important to see if there's anything in the review we can use to improve the experience of future guests. First off on the rates, they... More

Watch out for daily rates stated on their website, it does not tell you the correct rate. There were two of us, both females, high school friends now in our 30's. We rented the cabin for four nights and the owner repeatedly informed us that we were the only ones not staying the week. It was clear they did not... More

As this was a case where one reservation lead to two nearly identical reviews, and we already responded to the other, I won't write the same response twice. I would like to take a moment to apologize to this reviewer for the places we fell short though. But I also need to reiterate the rates on our website are accurate.... More

We just finished our trip and are completely happy with our stay. Nice cabins, a swimming area with a sandy beach, easy access to great fishing and close to town so you can get any supplies you need. Old fashion shuffle board, along with horseshoes, tennis and volleyball. Great hosts and an evening gathering spot in the game room/ bar.... More

Thanks so much for your review! It's nice to hear you were happy with your stay. Sounds like you had some luck fishing too! Many of our reviews focus on the lake area, but as mentioned we do have a tennis court, shuffleboard, horseshoes and a few other things for those of you who may be a little less water... More

Stayed the week of June 28, 2014, with our grandson. The owner Carol and her son Dan do a excellent job of maintaining the grounds and the cabins. Most of the cabins have to be 50+ years old but to look at them inside and out you would think they were brand new. Four of the 2 bedroom ones are... More

Thank you so much for your review! Your statement about ours being the nicest and cleanest resort you've stayed at, and you've stayed at many has to be about the most rewarding thing I've read in our reviews. Truth be told I don't know how old the original cottages (and you had one of them) are, but it's at least... More

I found this resort online and it was everything I was looking for! Relaxation for me and enough to keep my 11yr old happy too. The cabins were super clean and well stocked.

My husband and I stayed here one night and I wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean, charming atmosphere, beautiful peaceful lake with lots of 'lake toys' for guests to use. One negative: the pillows. They are like rocks. Old rocks. Bring your own.
