We stayed at this location to be close to Granite Peak. It was the closest hotel to the site but we still had to drive because the "path" was too far to walk with the equipment. The room was small, old and not particularly well kept. The common areas of the hotel were dirty and gross. To cover up the... More

The walk to the Ski Hill is 700 ft and next year we are planning a snow ride service. We are new owners as of March 2014 and are doing a new remodel. Sorry your stay was not as expected and we will work to be one of the best stays in Wausau area in the near future. More

Great location, short walk to Granite Peak ski resort. which made it nice not hassling with the car after a long day of skiing. Yes the rooms were dated but friendly staff at the front desk and during breakfast made our stay feel more like a mountain lodge than your typical hotel chain. New owner Mitch, shared his remodel and... More

Rented Villa 7 with a group of friends last weekend! Although a bit pricey, we rented this due to it's close proximity to Granite Peak Ski Area. The Villa was a bit spartan, but immaculately clean. It was WAY MORE spacious than expected. Sleeps 8 comfortably, but lots of room for air matresses if needed. The master closet was bigger... More

We stayed here because we were visiting a family member living in a nearby assisted living home. Staying in a hotel with a toddler is a nightmare so it was extremely convenient to have all the comforts of home. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the room was very comfortable. On one morning they served a hot breakfast and... More

If you've seen the show on The Travel Channel you know what I mean. We stayed two nights in a two bedroom Fireside Villa #7 in conjunction with a two day run at nearby Granite Peak. Our choice was based on the multiple bedroom options and location to the hill. Upon arrival, we were not happy to find out that... More

My husband and I placed a reservation 3 weeks before our arrival. The hotel charged us for both nights up front-$548.00!! We called 7 days in advance to cancel, but the manager told us that the policy is to keep the full amount they charged our credit card because their cancellation policy is 30 days out. Seriously?

I stayed here with 2 other adults this past week, and we were all impressed with the Inn. We stayed in one of the Villas across the street from the main lodge, and it was spacious, clean, and quiet. Some other reviews have mentioned rude or unavailable staff; we never encountered this problem. Whenever we needed assistance at the desk,... More
