Get out of town. Get outdoors. Get a fresh outlook. That’s how it works when you gather your family, a special group of friends—or maybe a family-and-friends multigenerational combo of twelve to sixteen of your favorite, fun-loving people—and head to Nancy & Joe’s Northwoods lake retreat!

Leisurely days and lovely nights lay ahead with a schedule dictated only by the mood you’re in at the moment. Surrounded by a drop-dead gorgeous environment, indoors and out, you may find yourself sailing around crystal-clear Trout Lake with a picnic lunch one day, and curled up with that book you’ve been meaning to read the next—sitting around the fire pit with your favorite glass of wine one night or gathered around the piano singing old favorites the next.

You’ll run out of time way before you run out of things to do.

Go fishing, take a long walk under towering trees, catch up on your naps. Get your cardio in with a beautiful bike ride, a refreshing swim, or a rigorous boat ride (powered by you!). Of course, the well-equipped workout area is always there for you.

Put together a foursome and head to the Minocqua Country Club, Northern Wisconsin’s premier club, for a round of golf.

See who wants to join you on a seaplane ride or a cocktail sunset cruise.

Every single moment in this beautiful setting will be a perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your family or friends.

If the great outdoors is calling you, raise your paddle!
