The Bear’s Den is named after the unique bear decor throughout the cabin rental. Relax in the four season sun room and snuggle up next to the gas fireplace. The Bear’s Den is just one of the 18 cabin rentals at our resort (The Nitschke’s Northern Resort). We have the only sandy, private, walk up beach on Lake Minocqua! Our cabins sit next to the Bear Skin Trail, an 18 mile trial for biking, hiking, and snowmobiling in the winter. Inside is a spacious living area that opens right up into the kitchen and dining area. This open concept layout allows our guests to have more space to socialize. We also have a private picnic area and grill for outdoor entertainment. Stay at the Bear’s Den and experience the best that the northwoods has to offer.

Sleeping arrangement: 1 single bed, 1 double bed, 1 queen bed, and 1 queen bed.

Unique Features

Our historic resort is just a 10 minute walk from downtown Minocqua. Previously referred to as “The Northern”, our resort was one of the first in the Minocqua area. The development of the resort happened at the same time as the influx of settlers to the area. Both the town and our resort have rich history.

In the early 2000’s we (The Nitschke Family) purchased this resort and transformed it, yet still kept it’s original charm. The resort also has family ties to the Packer legend, Ray Nitschke. Have more than 8 guests? Our resort can accommodate any size group. We have 18 vacation rentals all on Lake Minocqua. The benefit of booking directly with us (The Nitschke’s) is that we can answer any of your questions about the Bear’s Den, the resort, or local things to do.

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!
