The Point Hotel Review – Minocqua, WI

The Point Hotel ReviewThe Point Hotel Review. Took a drive in Wisconsin this week, ended up in Minocqua, a town so far North, one is in spitting distance of the UP of Michigan. This large complex sits waterside in this island town, which is known for sport angling, particularly for Walleye Pike and Muskellunge.  The large hotel complex is made up of privately owned condominiums, which are rented out and managed by the company as if they were hotel rooms.

The rooms are stylishly decorated and equipped with the usual add-ons, iron, microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, and a flat-screen TV.  They all ( I think) offer sweeping views of the 1400 acre Lake Minocqua, with 16 miles of shoreline.  There are picnic tables, bbq grills, firepits, landing docks, and kayaks and canoes for rent outside of the building.

Indoors you’ll find an exercise room, heated pool, hot tub, and sauna.

A complimentary breakfast is served from 7-9 AM, and during COVID times, the selection is limited to items that can be individually wrapped, as well as the ubiquitous hot waffles.

The hotel has done a good job with ‘Vid preparation, the rooms were spotless, the staff is masked, and distancing was encouraged.  The reception area has a plastic shield in place.

The staff was welcoming and helpful.  They changed our room to a better one upon arrival.  (There weren’t many guests that week, I saw no other people at breakfast or in the pool area).

There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance.  GrubHub and the like seem to not be present.  We had dinner across the lake at the “Boat Club,” which I will write up in the near future.

A nite stay was a C note.  I suspect higher “in season.”  Yep, just checked, a 3 night weekend stay end of June will set you back $236.   Add about another hundred if you want a two-bedroom suite.

Activities and attractions in Minocqua (if you aren’t there for fishing, snowmobiling, or ATV rides) are listed on the town’s website.
