Our first impression of this beautiful gem in Florence was wow!! The rooms were clean and cozy, overlooking the gorgeous lake. Such a quaint and neat place. We had great conversations with the new owners and they were a pleasure to get to know. I would recommend Maxsells to anyone passing through!!

Maxsell's is on a quiet beautiful little lake and the outdoor patio has the most amazing view! Indoors also has a view of the lake but if you can sit outside weather permitting, do so. Food is very good. Had the most amazing artichoke dip ever! Asked for the recipe but the chef wouldn't share:( Not like we live nearby... More

We eat here several times per season as we are snowbirds. You can eat inside or out on the patio depending on the weather. The enclosed porch has a lovely view of the lake. The food is very good and the service was good the last time we were there. It is worth going to.

My family has been visiting the Iron County MI area since 1974 and have always rented accommodations in the Crystal Falls MI vicinity. Over the years it has become harder to rent satisfactory accommodations as hospitality businesses have come and gone and not been replaced with suitable lodging. Recently my wife and I decided to go to the UP for... More

We had an excellent meal on a beautiful setting, on fisher lake. Chicken marsala, and barbecue ribs. Good wine list. Didn't need the music outside, but apart from that it was very nice. You can also stay there, but we didn't. Beautiful old house, nicely restored.

A wonderful spot .... Overlooking Fisher Lake in a picturesque town. The building was lovingly redone and its there waiting to be enjoyed! The food is excellent and there service warm and friendly. So forget the city life, drop the city attitude and enjoy what this wonderful restaurant has to offer.

Scrumptious gourmet food, from the appetizer to the main dishes to the desserts. Attentive and friendly service. Beautifully decorated atmosphere. Calming lakeside view. Worth the distance from Milwaukee, WI.

This is a really nice venue with good food and upscale victorian B&B type housing. The view from the porch or patio is terrific. The service has been off and on over the years. This would be an ideal location for a four or five couple retreat. The only problem is there is nothing to do in this town unless... More

Thank you for the kind comments about Maxsells. Summers are our best for visiting if you don't like snow sports. There are several shoppes in the neighborhood, Designated Scenic Trails, Walking Tour, several new offerings including a sport shop, Cuisine Art store, and the Resource Center has great displays and a full listing of all the area has to offer....

Fantastic new chef! Food was delicious at both dinner and Sunday brunch. Pleasant friendly atmosphere along with a beautiful view of the lake. You can tell the chef used quality food and certainly knew how cook them. Wait staff is very pleasant and attentive. Best restaurant for miles around.

Nicely decorated (not too much kitsch) and comfortable place to stay in Florence, WI. It's close to kayaking on the Brule and lots of great waterfall hikes. Not much to see in town, but Fisher Lake is pretty and there were lots of birds. Multiple oriole sightings!! Eagles, ospreys, and more (if I were a better birder). Really great ATV... More
