Deer Lake Resort is a 1,100-acre forest retreat located in a quiet, secluded spot in northern Wisconsin. The NO SMOKING resort is open June, July, and August only for reunions, corporate retreats, wedding parties, hunting and fishing trips, and large-group gatherings of all kinds. With nine bedrooms, six full baths, multiple sitting rooms, a cavernous dining room/family room overlooking the lake, a game room, and an enormous lawn, this Lodge easily handles up to 25 guests. With this much space inside plus the decks, lakeside screened porch, and gathering space outside, you will always find a place to hide when you need it. Special events all year are considered.

Family rooms are furnished with comfortable sofas, flat-screen TVs and wood burning fireplaces (4), with most rooms having a picture-window view of the lake.

The kitchen is fully equipped with the necessary dining ware for about 20 guests. If you have more people, consider bringing plastic and paper plates! Included are cookware such as two slow cookers, two counter top frying tables, a steam table, two coffee pots, and a 50 cup coffee maker, and two blenders for those slushy drinks! Modern appliances are a commercial gas stove top, convection oven, toaster oven, toaster, two full-sized refrigerators, and a stand-up freezer. Just bring food!

The dining room is designed to hold up to 22 people at a time for meals, with a 12-foot-long main table and bar stools for 10. On the lower level, a spacious recreation room houses a ping pong table, foosball and two video game consoles. In addition to six full baths (all remodeled in 2013), there is a seventh outdoor shower and a wet deck for washing pets or rinsing off after a day in the lake.

Sleeping arrangements: Deer Lake Resort can comfortably accommodate up to 25 overnight guests between the home’s nine spacious bedrooms. The configurations include (bed 1) a king-sized bed, (bed 2) a queen-sized bed, (bed 3) a queen bed and a twin bunk, (bed 4) a full bed and a twin bunk, (bed 5) a queen and a twin, (bed 6) a queen bed, (bed 7) two twin beds, (bed 8) two twin beds, (bed 9) a queen bed with twin above and five twin beds with it's own family sitting area and wood burning fireplace.

Unique Features

Deer Lake Resort is situated on nearly two square miles of land wrapping all the way around the resort’s privately-owned 40-acre lake. A mile-long driveway leading to the house ensures that your vacation is nice and secluded. The 9,000-square-foot home is the only structure for 1.5 miles in any direction and is surrounded by dense forest.

This large-group lodge offers a large yard with a volleyball net and basketball hoop, a gazebo, outdoor grills, a sun deck and an upper-level balcony, all overlooking the private lake and boat docks. The property also includes the use of kayaks, paddle board and canoes, two 14-foot fishing boats with electric motors, three paddle boats, a two-person electric pontoon, and a 6-8 person electric pontoon.

Things To Do

Deer Lake Resort is roughly a 45-minute drive from Lake Superior with its boat and equipment rentals, public beaches and other exciting attractions. Guests who are looking for other off property things to do may want to plan a day trip to enjoy hiking or a round of golf at one of several nearby courses.

The surrounding area offers a varied selection of local restaurants, library, playgrounds, casinos, antique shops, gift shops, and underground caves. However, since Deer Lake Resort has more than enough room for you to bring everyone you know (and your dog) you may want to stick around the private acres and lake, use the complimentary boats and sporting equipment and enjoy the trails, fishing, swimming, bird-watching and wildlife.

Summer offers the obvious fishing but also hunting, hiking, and biking on wilderness or local paved trails.

Contact us for information about arranging for home-cooked meals provided in-house for special occasions.

Surprised! I had no Idea that you could rent a place like this! Great swimming, boating, hiking- just everything outdoors was great. Electric pontoon boats made it easy for Grandma to get in and out of for her favorite past time- fishing. The house has tons of space and a FREE game room that we all enjoyed. We will be returning. Rob H., July 2017
Most relaxing getaway! My Family has been here two times for family reunions. It is a great set up for a big group of people. All kinds of room to hang out, very comfortable, cozy and private. The lake is very refreshing to swim in the summer, which is when we come, we like the warm weather. The boats are great just to cruise around the lake and we always catch fish. So many trails to hike, explore and take our 4 wheelers on. I can only imagine what a blast on snowmobiles it would be! It is the perfect place to go for a complete and total get away from your routine. We hate leaving. Have a date for this next summer again!! Can hardly wait!! Oh and the owner is a great cook and fun to hang out with!! : ) Thanks for a great time!! see you soon!! Feb. 2015
Nowhere else like it! My family has been lucky enough to stay at Deer Lake for a couple of vacations. There really is nowhere else like it. We always feel a sense of solitude and great fun. The loons calling at the end of the day is a perfect way to enjoy each other and the sunset. We also appreciate the availability of owners, Rob and Terry. We had some simple questions for them and there was an immediate response. Thank you for maintaining and nurturing this very special place. Connie N., Feb. 2015
A vacation to remember! Deer Lake is a unique location. It is so peaceful and quiet, a great place to destress. The lodge is immaculate and has everything you need to have a home away from home. The property is gorgeous with trails to hike or ski, with a private lake as your backyard. To spend your vacation here is to have a magical experience that you will not forget. Every time I have visited, I leave with wonderful memories. Judy O., Feb. 2015
Fantastic! WOW! The updated design is fantastic. Our family has enjoyed coming here for 25 years. Our children have developed a pure and loving relationship with wildlife and the natural beauty of the unspoiled outdoors. The unique setting with the ultimate privacy has really allowed us to have quality, family quiet time. Our children still come with us to Deer Lake because we truly cannot get enough! Our holiday trip this year was the best ever. Thank you so much. Jimka H., Jan. 2015

About the Owner/Manager

We purchased the property around Deer Lake Resort in 1990. We choose Winchester for our own vacations because of its privacy and the beautiful Northwoods setting, and because it’s not too far from our home residence in Northbrook, Illinois. We began renting the resort on the recommendation of our friends. We are now a Wisconsin state-licensed hotel and are booked a year in advance, with a 95 percent return rate. This is hard to describe- you just need to see it.

Safely book direct at the guaranteed lowest rate. Insure your trip with Nationwide Travel Insurance.

Owner or manager will be contacting you.
