  • Minocqua cabin

    "Perfect location! Easy walk into downtown, right on the bike trail and lake access- couldn't be better. The cabin was new and spotless, had everything a family needs. We will definately return."

  • A Great Place to Enjoy the Northwoods !

    "We, too, had a wonderful time at Black's Cliff. The grandkids had a ball playing in the autumn leaves, fishing on the pretty little lake, and hanging out on back porch with its swinging bed....even in late October! Did some biking on the Bearskin Trail, lots of hiking with the dogs, and we enjoyed the warmth of hotdogs and s'mores (of course!) over an outdoor campfire. Some nights we just made pizzas, played games, and told stories around our cozy cabin's stone fireplace. Made a dash for the swinging bed every morning, tho, to cuddle with a little one and watch the sun come up! There was a "just right" feel to our entire stay at Black's Cliff. Nothing too fancy...the campers among us loved the woodsiness of the place. The owners made us feel right at home, as they were very helpful and available. Hope we're able to enjoy more visits in the years to come!"

  • Fishing Getaway

    "Had a wonderful, relaxing 4 night stay. Cabin is as described and was very clean. The owner, Todd, was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating even as our plans changed last minute. The cabin has a beautiful view and way more amenities than we were able to use. Mosquitoes were nightmarish, which made the screened porch our favorite spot! Saw deer, eagles, ospreys and loons during our stay. My son and I enjoyed lots of fishing. The weather and fishing didn’t cooperate but we did manage to catch a variety including musky, walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie, perch and bluegill. Rented a boat through Good Nuff Boat Rentals and it was super convenient since it was dropped off and picked up on adjoining Round Lake (just have to be careful of all the submerged rocks). Had a good fish fry at Moosejaw Resort just down the road. Ran in to Minocqua one day (20 minutes away). We have rented several places in the Minocqua area the past few years and this was our favorite because of the cabin’s amenities, the overall value, the location on a good fishing lake, and the ease of working with the owner. Hope to return soon!"

    "Beyond beautiful! Everything you need in one spot. Beautiful updated, fully stocked home with a beautiful view. We had direct access to snowmobile trails and what a wonderful view of the lake! Was wonderful watching the Eagles come down on the lake for scraps one of the neighbors had left them. I just can't say enough how spectacular it was, beyond what the description shows. The grounds keeper Dave did anything he could to make this accommodating for our trucks and trailers and was so pleasant to talk to. The owners worked with us right up to the last minute to make our vacation wonderful!"

Minocqua Travel Tips

Minocqua Vacation Rentals in the Pines

Although another state lays claim to having thousands of lakes, Wisconsin is not far behind. Choosing to relax in Minocqua vacation rentals could find you on Blue Lake, Lake Catherine, Shishebogama Lake or private Mercer Lake. These VRBO homes feature the amenities that you would find in your own home, probably because they are privately owned homes. The owners open up their doors to you by offering spacious living areas, plush beds, fully equipped kitchens and private docks or wrap-around porches where you can enjoy the outdoor life. Imagine having a leisurely breakfast on your deck watching the birds on the water or a deer munching on the greenery. This idyllic setting could be yours when you choose a wonderful vacation rental in Minocqua.

Finding Your way to Minocqua Cabins

There are three airports that can get you to Minocqua, Wisconsin. Because none of them are particularly close, you will need to rent a car or plan to drive on your vacation. If you choose to fly into Milwaukee or Madison, you want to take I-94 and then go north on I-39. When I-39 ends, you will continue on Highway 51 to Minocqua which lies in the northeast quadrant of Wisconsin. The autumn colors make the drive spectacular and there are still plenty of things to do at that time of year.

Entertainment at Minocqua Lodging

If you are lucky enough to select a Minocqua house on a lake, you could find yourself swimming, boating, fishing or lounging in a hammock on the deck. This is by no means the only form of entertainment that is available to guests of Minocqua lodging. In the wintertime, guests can relax by the fire in their vacation house after a day of cross country skiing or snowmobiling at nearby Minocqua Winter Park. They offer more than 75 miles of groomed trails just perfect for any cross country ski adventure. You can fix a lunch for the family at your Minocqua cabins and eat out on the trail.

Looking for a little wildlife adventure on your vacation? Then direct your vehicle to Wildwood Wildlife Park and Nature Center. This 25-acre park has over 700 birds, mammals, and reptiles for the visitors to enjoy. For those brave enough to try it, they can pet a porcupine, skunk, woodchuck, tortoise and other animals. Nature programs are offered on a daily basis as are boat rides, a safari train ride, and fishing for trout. Catch your dinner then bring it back to your vacation home’s BBQ grill. Food is available at the park if you do not want to pack a picnic.

Evening entertainment is just about 10 miles away at the Northern Lights Playhouse. There are performances nightly from Memorial Day weekend through mid-September of everything from Broadway musicals to comedy reviews. If you are interested in visiting more than one state on your vacation, your family could take a side trip into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. You can dip your toes into Lake Superior from Wisconsin or Michigan.

Sweet Treats and Dining Options Near Minocqua Lake Houses

North woods dining is hearty fare that relies on home0cooked comfort foods that we all love. Whether you want a quiet casual restaurant such as Albee’s Yacht Club Bar & Grill with great views of Lake Minocqua or fast food like Arby’s so you can get back to playing, you can have it. Have a sweet tooth? Check out the enticing fresh baked goods at Ella’s Family Restaurant or the gourmet popcorn you can enjoy before a roaring fire or backyard fire pit. Flavors like melted cheddar cheese, kettle corn, caramel corn or the spicier jalapeno popcorn will enhance your experience at your Minocqua lake home rental. Cooking at your vacation home is wonderful but you would not want to miss out on some of the region’s best cuisine. Ask your VRBO owner for some of their favorite dining establishments.
