“A classic northwoods resort, old-fashioned relaxation.”
Reviewed June 13, 2010

Ross's Teal Lake Lodge is one of a small number of surviving classic north woods resorts. It includes log cabins by the shore; a gorgeous lodge for guest enjoyment dominated by a massive fireplace; a first-rate dining room serving classic breakfasts and outstanding dinners (don't miss the duck, the bluegill, the Sunday chicken); a well-stocked private bar overlooking the water; and various other amenities such as a pool (not really needed because the lake is great for swimming) and a challenging 18-hope golf course. We loved the combination of semi-luxury and old-fashioned semi-rustic resort living. The Ross family who run the resort are sharp, attentive, and efficient. The lake, the loons, the fishing, the walks, the quiet: all were outstanding. For us it was a perfect place. We'll go back again and again.

It would not be for everyone. It's not cheap. There still are places in northern Wisconsin where you can rent a basic cabin and a boat, be left alone for a week, and spend half the money you'll spend at Ross's. A place like that may not be charming, and the lake may not be so quiet (there's a 10mph speed limit on Teal Lake, and people obey it), but if you search you can still do the north woods for quite a bit less than a week at Ross's will cost. Or if you don't mind spending the money but expect for the price to get full, modern, luxury accommodations, cable television, internet, a business center, perfectly appointed surroundings that feel as if they were built or remodeled yesterday, and a saccharine staff attending to all your whims, well, you'll be better off at the Wisconsin Dells or an all-inclusive in Mexico. For us the appeal of Ross's is the combination of clean but classic (80-year-old) accommodations, solitude, the option of laid-back, intelligent sociability with the Rosses and interesting other guests, good food, good fishing, good golf, sunsets over the lake from the bar, and the loons calling out in the night over the silence. A great place for us, that's all I can say.

We were very disappointed with our stay at this resort. The cabin was old and had a very moldy smell. The manager was unfriendly, and we felt everything was overpriced. We would never return and we would not recommend this resort.
