This is our first trip to the Minocqua area. It is gorgeous up here! The Chain of Lakes offer fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, etc. The Beacons one bedroom condo is what we are staying in. There's a king size bed in the bedroom and queen in the pullout in the living room. The indoor pool is kept at a very... More

Our accommodations were clean, modern and updated. The pool area for the grandkids was inviting. We are close to many attractions including the Bear Skin Trail. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for the great vacation.

When we arrived at The Beacons check in was very quick and the room was more than we expected. We rented a 3 bedroom condo which was just off the water. Beautiful scenery and very quite. The grounds were kept up very nicely. We rented a pontoon boat from the resort which was very convenient. The boat was older but... More

We stayed last weekend for a fishing trip. We have stayed there many times over the last 10-12 years. The electricity was out. They had no backup generators. It was very warm and muggy. There was no electricity...there was no water. We asked for a discount due to the uninhabitable conditions. "Nope!" We asked to speak with a supervisor. She... More

We went on a snowmobiling trip. We booked a three room condominium and we were on the third floor. We were in room 350 and the room is right by the elevator. The elevator is heated and so it the staircase. We usually took the stairs because it was faster. Our layout of the room was nice. We had two... More

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
