One of the BEST places you'll ever stay in the Northwoods! Top notch accommodations and a first class staff. The on premise restaurant and bar are not to be missed. Manitowish Waters is a fantastic area and this is the perfect spot to enjoy it all.

This resort is nestled lakeside in the northwoods with the luxuries of modern resorts! The outdoor pool area is perfect! You can sit by the pool and overlook the lake-very serene and picture perfect!!! Extremely clean and well maintained! The bar is just a few steps away with outdoor seating and a happy hour!!! Nothing else is needed here!!!!!

Our fifth stay in the villas on the lake. You could not ask for a more peaceful setting. Fabulous accommodations in a pristine setting. Our friends from Minneapolis meet us in Wausau as we head up from Milwaukee. An easy hour and twenty minute drive to Manitowish Waters after a relaxing lunch. This was our first experience at the White...

This resort was perfect for our summer family getaway! The outdoor pool area is awesome - we actually had it all to ourselves for most of our visit! There is also a double sided fireplace in that area, which was set up and ready to light each night which was really nice! Also nice that the resort sits right on...
