“Independence Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We have stayed at The Pointe Resort in the past and have always been happy with our experience. We were satisfied again during the 4th of July weekend. We spent 2 nights here. We had a suite with one king bed and a queen size bed on the lower level with views of the bridge and Lake Minocqua. The room included a frig, microwave, and large flat screen TV. Friendly staff, adequate continental breakfast every morning. We met some nice guests from Minneapolis and Maryland. The patio door lock was broken but a security bar over the door made the room feel secure. We booked a 3 hour Pontoon ride and tour through Minocqua Pontoon. It was fantastic! We saw eagles, loons and other wildlife, beautiful homes and boat houses! Our tour guide and driver George had a wonderful personality! We would highly recommend! We went one day to the Minocqua Brewery for lunch and its was a wonderful experience! The meal was delicious and so was the Nut Brown Ale!

Room Tip: By restaurant I am speaking about the continental breakfast that they provide every morning free as...

I have been going up to the Northwood's for 35 years and since I was only up there overnight for business decided to give this place a try. This place is great!!!!! The rooms are super clean, beds are beyond comfortable and the hospitality makes you feel like your home. Highly Recommended!

I love staying at hotels that include a fully functioning kitchen. At the Pointe, you will feel completely at home. You can walk into the picturesque town of Minocqua and enjoy the many different options for dining, shopping and sightseeing. Add to the fact that the hotel is right on the lake, and you'll find that The Pointe can't be beat. Enjoy!

JWH: Thanks for your review of our property. All our suites have fully functional kitchens and we also offer numerous outdoor gas grill patios; both being very popular with our guests. As for your comment about walking into town, many guests leave their autos parked at the hotel and take the comfortable walk (2/10ths mile) while enjoying the scenery of Lake Minocqua. With 800 feet of frontage and every room overlooking the lake, The Pointe is a special place to spend a night, weekend or weeks vacation; glad you could experience The Pointe Hotel & Suites of Minocqua.

My family and I stayed at The Pointe over Memorial Day weekend. I got a really great deal on a Premier 1BR suite (I think it averaged $99/night). We all thought it was a great place to stay. We enjoyed the free breakfast each morning. The staff we encountered were very friendly. The location is fabulous. You are literally minutes from just about anything - Minocqua is such a beautiful place! We loved waking up to the sound of the loons, and on our last morning were treated to a bald eagle perched right outside of our window high up in a tree that had no leaves - so a very great view.
The hotel was quiet, though I believe they were full. The pool was clean, and we also took advantage of the hot tub and sauna. Didn't make it down tot he firepit - next time!

Dear Guest,

I'm glad you and your family were able to spend Memorial Day Weekend in Minocqua and chose our resort hotel for your lodging needs. Our hospitality team takes great pride at providing a quality lodging experience for all our guests; we're happy you enjoyed your stay. Our location although 2/10 mile south of downtown (an easy five minute walk), lends itself to 800 feet of Lake Minocqua frontage, a quiet setting and many wonderful amenities for our guests to enjoy. And, yes, eagles and loons make appearances quite regularly. Thanks again for being our guest; we look forward to hosting you again in the near future, and the lakeside campfire patio will await your use!

Friendly confines and staff. The view from our room was trees and water with a short stroll to the firepit and docks. We never heard a sound after the hotel 10:00pm "quiet-time". Or maybe we were just bushed after exploring the lakes and all the different places to eat just down the street.
I don't see many eagles or loons where I live...here, they were everywhere! The Pointe is a reason to go up north...

Room Tip: Pick the lake side...all the $ choices are available.

Dear Ed,

Thank you for your recent review of our resort hotel. We appreciate you taking the time to communicate your experiences while being our guest. As many other guests have found, your experiences with the loons and eagles are pretty common on or near our lakefront. And, I would hope that our "quiet time" did promote a good night of relaxation and rest; but, I'm sure your exploring the lakes and the fun downtown area had something to do with it as well. We hope you will find time to spend future time with us. Thanks for being our guest!

The staff at the Point was fabulous, very friendly and helpful. The views of the lake are great with a fire pit and docks for your boat. The rooms are clean and cozy, we had a room with a jet tub in the bedroom which was awesome. I can't wait to return to the Point.

Annual destination for a relaxing week of family fun. The resort is just a short walk to the downtown area. We've vacationed here for over 2 decades and the staff (esp. Seneca) have become like family. The resort pool is open year round and it's always great to watch a storm over the lake from your balconies.
