If you want beautiful views of the lake, soaring bald eagles, Eagles catching fish and loons calling this is your place. Comfortable accommodations. Nice trail and walk into town. Lots of great supper clubs to eat at close by. Great resort.

My parents get a room at the Beacons every fall for our family and we always enjoy visiting! The grounds are absolutely beautiful - wildlife everywhere - you will see deer on the drive in, on the grounds etc. Close proximity to the Bearskin trail - nice walk into Minocqua or for a bike ride. The Beacons has a beautiful... More

We stayed in June. We had a first floor lakeside unit (104) which was very well maintained, homey and welcoming. Loved the reserved parking right outsde the door. The resort offers wonderful activities (indoor pool. whiirlpool,exercise room, walking trails, sandy beach, docks, and more) Good restaurants in the atea if you want a meal out.

We have stayed here the last two years and just love it. This property offers beautiful views of lake minocqua and it's so peaceful. The condos are decorated in cabin decor which is so relaxing. We like that it's off the beaten path but yet it's close to town.

When we arrived at The Beacons check in was very quick and the room was more than we expected. We rented a 3 bedroom condo which was just off the water. Beautiful scenery and very quite. The grounds were kept up very nicely. We rented a pontoon boat from the resort which was very convenient. The boat was older but... More

We stayed last weekend for a fishing trip. We have stayed there many times over the last 10-12 years. The electricity was out. They had no backup generators. It was very warm and muggy. There was no electricity...there was no water. We asked for a discount due to the uninhabitable conditions. "Nope!" We asked to speak with a supervisor. She... More

We went on a snowmobiling trip. We booked a three room condominium and we were on the third floor. We were in room 350 and the room is right by the elevator. The elevator is heated and so it the staircase. We usually took the stairs because it was faster. Our layout of the room was nice. We had two... More

We spend a week at the Beacons using time share points through Interval World. The resort was not crowded since we were in between the Fall Colors and the Snow Activities seasons.
