For many years my girlfriend and I would canoe and camp in a tent for 7 to 10 days at a stretch. We love the Northwoods, the lakes, forests, loons, eagles and deer. The time came to give up the sleeping bag, and sleep somewhere with a bed. We tried hotels in Boulder Junction, Minocqua, St. Germaine and Manitowish Waters.... More

My husband and I had the opportunity to rent the "Trails End" cabin for a week. The cabin was warm and the bed was very comfortable. Knotty pine lines the walls. I loved being able to sit in a chair in the cabin itself or on the front screened porch to view the lake. The cabin is literally feet from... More

After stumbling upon Sayner Lodge several years ago, we have been coming ever since for a yearly Labor Day weekend getaway. Hidden among the trees along the shore of Plum Lake, it is a truly unique place to vacation! We stay in a cabin that sits 20 feet away from the water with a semi-private deck. My family enjoys kayaking... More

A great place to get away from it all. The property has an extensive lakefront, and the numerous towering trees populating the large property give it a very serene feeling. It is quite common to see eagles soaring above the lake. Sayner WI is not Orlando and the lodge is not a Disney resort. Those coming for a Disney experience... More

I can only say that the burdens of the office melt away as I sit by the lake and listen to the loons. What a wonderful place!!! Authentic Northwoods experience. Deer, chipmunks, eagles, squirrels were in abundance and may our stay that much more unique. Rustic and relaxing atmosphere. Pristine lake with a lot less boat traffic than others.

I and my family and extended family stayed here the last week of July. It is very diffucult to know why there are two types of reviews for this lodge?? The reason being, there are two types of lodging. There are a few cabins that look brand new and very up to date and I'm sure beautiful inside. BUT those... More

Squirrels, bats, chipmunks, deer are all part of the Northwoods. Next time stay at a sterile Best Western that allows unlimited people in a room and has a lovely highway outside your door. You should be ashamed to write such a review when we made an effort to ensure a nice stay for you and your families. Again, if you... More

My family of 6, and 3 other families spent a 4day weekend here just last week... while I have been disappointed before, this was truly a sad experience. We rented 4 of the 8 rooms in the lodge, and 2 cabanas. The state of disrepair was unbelievable. The entire place smelled musty, we had 3 out of the 6 toilets... More

It was very clear you folks were on a budget. We didn't even charge you for extra persons in some of the rooms and one of the cabanas. Your concern was so great that the kids have a good time and if one of THEM wrote a review I'm sure it would be glowing. So, bottom line, we gave you... More

The first time I visited the lodge was in the 1970's when it was in it's prime. It is still a beautiful setting and a great spot for people who love to swim, bike, kayak and hike! The rooms, while not fashionably decorated, were clean and comfortable. It reminded me of a more relaxed time when families read books, and... More

“Spend the money for the CABIN. For the price of a hotel room in town, you get a 1 room cabin at Froelich's on the lake with a view.”

“Cabins are located either down by the lake or up by the drive. Cabins by the lake, for the most part, are only accessed by stairs. If you have physical limitations, you may want to ask for a cabin by the drive. Each cabin is unique and offers its own experience.”
