We have started a new tradition in our family, Christmas 'Up-North'. Talk about a white Christmas, when it snows up here, the whole place looks like a magazine cover! Great for pictures.
Our family has been staying at this resort for 12 years now and we are happy to report that the quality and level of service has remained constant since the very start!
Love that our kids can fish right off the dock without any worries. We can comfortably watch them from our sunporch and still cheer them on when they get a bite on their line.

About the Owner/Manager

We have been owners and manager for a total of 17 years and we love it. You couldn't find a more serene, pristine place to stay. The resort is impeccably maintained from the homes to the grounds. That is due to having onsite management so you don't have to worry about anything. You need something we are here for you, always. You are in great hands with Brigit & Don.

We have wonderful specials from October 1 to May 1 and they consist of staying 5 nights for the price of 3 and staying 3 nights for the price of 2! Come stay with us, you'll want to come back over and over again, just like many of the guests we have now. I believe that we have guests that have been coming here for over 30 years! That says something about the resort and management.

Just across the old train trestle from beautiful Minocqua, on the peninsula separating LAKE MINOCQUA and LAKE KAWAGUESAGA, lies a piece of spectacular Northwoods paradise: NITSCHKE'S NORTHERN RESORT! While this location retains its century long tradition as a premier getaway site, you don't have to live like it's the 1900's in order to vacation like it is. The ample amenities are thoroughly modernized and diligently maintained. Our location is ideal for fun through all four seasons. Our 300'+ sand beach and included dock space let you enjoy the crystal clear waters of the entire chain of lakes any way you like.

Immediate access to the great BEARSKIN STATE TRAIL lets you park your sled just outside the cabin door in the winter. In the Spring, Summer and Fall, bike or walk the trail as an exclusive shortcut into town or for a more extended adventure. We are truly proud to say that NITSCHKE'S NORTHERN RESORT offers the golden combination of ideal location and first-class facilities, which makes for a splendid "CAN'T MISS" VACATION!
