Our family has held family celebrations: weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and christenings at Voss', along with simply celebrating the north woods in summer. This century + old resort is an elegant return to a bygone era when life was simpler and the pace more measured. Featured on the NY Times as a place not to be missed, this family-owned establishment provides an unpretentious menu that is consistently excellent and affordable. The service can be slow at peak times but it is never careless, and the ambience of the beautifully appointed dining room makes the occasional wait inconsequential. Voss' is an experience you simply must have.

Thank Julie C

For over 100 years, same-family owned Voss Birchwood Lodge has been a part of vacations to the top of the state of Wisconsin. Our family just loves to visit and dine as often as we can. It's the whole package experience...the amazing pine tree scented grounds with old-time cottages, the original 1920's lodge, the highway coffee shop and boutiques, and the excellent food, desserts, and attentive service - many times by delightful Lithuanian summer staff. We live only 20 minutes away, but a trip to Voss' is a mini-vacation and actually a trip back in time to a simpler era when rustic relaxed living and vacations without wifi and tablets was the vogue. Set on the 10 lake Manitowish chain of lakes, Voss' Birchwood Lodge is a treasure and an important part of my summertime. Reservations a must.

Food Ok. Service good in a great old lodge with wonderful views. Old school and fun. A bit too formal but worth the visit for dinner. Cabins looked real nice but did not stay here.

Voss's has a smaller menu to select from, but with that comes a well prepared and delicious dinner. I chose the Chicken Marsala, which included baby baked potatoes. It just melted in your mouth. The waitresses are so polite and willing to accommodate your needs. The setting overlooks one of the beautiful northwoods lakes. Reservations are recommended as this is a very popular place, understandable.
