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 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. The beach is okay but they never have enough chairs. The new deck up by the fire pit is a great addition. Don't ever be in a... More

I'll start by saying that we really enjoyed our stay. Many of the comments about the beach, restaurant, bar, and friendly staff are spot on. But with the overwhelmingly positive reviews, I'd like to highlight some of the things that were less than perfect. We came the last week of June and rented a cabin next to friends. We all... More

What a great supper club!!! This gem is hidden away and it's part of Holiday Acres Resort, but open to the public. When we got to the resturant we spent a couple minutes exploring the main office and looking around the grounds. All the staff we talked to were extremely friendly and welcoming.

This place is just like the ones where your family vacationed in the 1950's. Probably it hasn't changed much since then. The rooms are OK but are in serious need of updating. The bed was comfortable once we removed the dead spider from the quilt. The hair dryer didn't work and the lodge didn't have a spare so we roughed... More
