The staff is wonderful! Very nice, helpful people. Nice cabin...very clean. Very nice restaurant and coffee shop on site. You don't have to drive into town for meals. Activities available for those who want to be active. The onsite gift shop is outstanding. Worth coming to even if you are not staying on property. We are planning a return trip... More

Had a very nice time and our latest stay at Holiday Acres Resort in one of the cabins. We had no issues making the reservations by phone. We were were not able to start our "week" until until Sunday and wouldn't be there for the full 7 nights, we offered the better weekly rate as opposed to the nightly rate... More

I loved Holiday Acres and it was the best place to have my wedding!!! Everyone was there to help me and make sure it was great from the receptionists to the maintenance crew to even the owners, everyone came out to make sure it was perfect! I would have given Holiday Acres a 5 but we had a bad experience... More

As first time visitors we were excited to stay at HA. We're book a 2b cabin for a five member family. On the positive side we found the surroundings great with lots to do for the kids. The beach was great and the hodag hunt also. The kids fished a lot and caught small fish. We enjoyed the bar, the... More

So glad to hear that your family enjoyed the resort and the activities. Thank you for letting us know that the cottage you stayed in needed maintenance and deep cleaning. Our housekeeper does rounds on Sunday mornings in the summertime to check on cleanliness and things that are needed. Unfortunately, she must not have spoken with you. My sincere apologies... More

Another summer and another unforgettable trip to Holiday Acres. What a privilege to escape from the fast pace world and search for pinecones and wildlife with your kids. Our cabin was spotless and equipped with everything we could need and more. All nine of us fit very comfortably in our three bedroom and the rowboat included with our cabin was... More

I truly hate giving one star reviews, and I rarely do. Actually I never have. I wanted to make a reservation to stay there for a wedding. Poor process and rude old lady, Gladys, on the phone completely made me not want to even stay there. Was not quick to give information until after the process. She kept telling me... More

I'm very sorry to hear about your unhappy conversation when calling for a reservation. It's hard to know what may have been happening at the time you called, but it was likely a challenging day and that came across to you as it should not have. My sincere apologies. More

I came to Holiday Acres over 50 years ago with my parents and sisters so when I saw the reviews upon a visit with my husband to Rhinelander, I was excited to return to a place I remembered fondly. I selected a "King bedroom with spa". Assuming we would have a luxurious bathroom off our bedroom. We were surprised to... More

We just returned from a weeklong stay at Holiday Acres Resort, and once again, experienced all that’s good about the North Woods of Wisconsin. We discovered Holiday Acres over 10 years ago, when our son discovered Camp Deerhorn (Deerhorn is amazing, but that’s a different story altogether). We head north to visit our son, who is now a counselor at... More

We've been going to Holiday Acres for almost twenty years and not much has changed. They really don't try and keep up with all the work that could be done with the resort.
