Ready to experience the best the Northwoods has to offer? Nitschke’s Northern Resort is on Lake Minocqua and adjacent to the Bear Skin Trail. We are open year round so your cabin time can include boating, biking, hiking and even snowmobiling in the winter. We invite you to start a new tradition with us!

We are the perfect getaway for a family of any size. You’ll love the close proximity to the lake: just a quick walk from the docks and boat slips which are complimentary. From your cabin’s patio you can see and hear wildlife and enjoy a pristine view of Lake Minocqua.

1600 sq ft Bearskin Cabin is located along the western edge of the property. Inside is a spacious four season sun-room for enjoying our summer evenings. You’ll find everything you need to cook a meal for your family and friends in the well stocked kitchen (a huge money saver too). The full-sized refrigerator/freezer will keep you stocked for the week.

Sleeping arrangement: 2 Doubles, 1 Queen, 2 Kings.

Unique Features

One of the more unique events is the 11:00pm Annual Only Fools Run at Midnight Run/Walk (a costume contest, post race refreshments). Since you book directly with us, we can give you local tips! We are home to many unique, quaint and off-beat businesses. You can walk to downtown Minocqua without breaking a sweat - a 10 minute stroll away.

Directly behind the cabin is the Bearskin Trail which boasts 18 miles of hiking, biking and walking trails. If you plan on bringing water or winter toys, you can safely lock up your possessions in the 2-car attached garage with coded entry.

Things To Do

Photography buffs will love the changing landscapes during Fall, Winter and Spring - right here at the resort and in nearby parks. Walk right outside your cabin’s front door and start shooting! Attention hard-core musky anglers, aspiring bass-masters, fly-fishing trout enthusiasts; you will love the easy access to thousands of lakes, rivers, and streams near Arbor Vitae, Rhinelander, Eagle River and Boulder Junction.

This is "Nature's Original Water Park" and the spectacular views of Lake Minocqua and downtown Minocqua from the resort are impressive. With so many incredible things to do in one area, you might want to tap in to our local knowledge. You book with us, so we can help plan a great Minocqua getaway.

Fire up the charcoal grill and gather around your private picnic table. A bit later, gather around the firepit and get to know your new resort friends. Plan ahead, our 18 cabins don't stay vacant for long!

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!
