Lake Resorts

Our lakes are as scenic as they are full of excitement and activity. Home to around 15,000 lakes, there's no shortage of freshwater fun in Wisconsin, especially at our lakeside resorts featuring top-of-the-line amenities and diverse accommodations, everything from upscale villas to rustic cabins. 

Spend a week or weekend bonding with the family or catching up with friends. Try activities like fishing and swimming in the summer and perhaps snowshoeing in the wintertime. Every evening, return to your vacation dwelling and check out the marvelous sunset from your private escape. 

Here are some of our best lake resorts in Wisconsin, perfect for any occasion. 

Indulge at Scenic Lakeside Resorts

For guests seeking first-class views and amenities on the lake, we’ve got you covered. 

One option is The Abbey Resort, a full-service resort on Lake Geneva in southern Wisconsin. Stay in a suite, villa, or guest room; some feature harbor views. During your stay, stroll around the 90 acres of beautiful grounds and dine at the resort’s award-winning restaurants.

Although not technically on a lake, the Westwood Shores Waterfront Resort, situated on Sturgeon Bay, is a short car ride across the peninsula away from Lake Michigan. Book a one or two-bedroom suite or apartment featuring a balcony. From there, watch the sunset every evening and breathe in the fresh air.

Rent a Charming Lakeside Cabin

If a picturesque cabin or lodge by a lake is more your style, you have a whole array of options to consider.

Enjoy quality time with loved ones Up North at A Lot of Lakes Resort on the shores of Big Stone Lake. Wake up to the peaceful sounds of waves lapping against the shore, and spend a leisurely day fishing, swimming and relaxing around the lake. Then, return to your cozy lodge — there are five of them on-property — to watch movies, stargaze and enjoy some good old-fashioned family fun. 

Near Bayfield and the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, the Delta Lodge in Iron River has a dozen lakeside cabins featuring decks, porches and fireplaces. Guests can spend a day on Lake Everett, hike nearby trails and go snowshoeing in the wintertime. 

So, get away from it all and find a lake resort suited to your vacation needs any time of year. Whether you're staying by the smooth, clear waters of Lake Geneva or the rocky shores of Lake Michigan, you’re sure to spend a memorable vacation on the water here.
