Our family of 4 stayed 4 nights in the Ridgewood cottage from the 28th to the 1st and had a wonderful winter mini-vacation. The owner and staff were very helpful with a minor problem the first night. All was taken care of within an hour. It was very cold -26 and we were still warm in the cabin with the... More

We spent the first weekend in August at your resort. (I have been without a computer for a while) The first night was spent in the inn and then the remainder of the stay we were in a cabin. My only issue with the resort itself was lack of pillows, blankets and being charged additional money for kids over a... More

Our friends had their wedding ceremony and reception here. The staff was Excellent: so accommodating and friendly. Beautiful location. Impressive selection at the bar. Gorgeous food (must try omelets for breakfast). The chef said almost everything on the menu is home-made. A small problem with the lodge's plumbing was attended to almost instantly. The lake looked so pretty framed with... More

It was an incredible place for us to unwind and spend quality time just being together. The people of the resort were truly friendly and caring. It's the place that you remember as a kid a little scratched and faded but comforting and relaxing. I have been a chef for 22yrs and the restaurant is the best in the area... More

We have taken our family to Holiday Acres for over 25 years. The cabins are rustic and provide a place for loads of family memories, located near Lake Thompson, where we have spent so many hours swimming and boating. This is a resort in the north woods--no pretense of a big city Hyatt. We love it just the way it... More
