Acorn Lodge
Reviewed 5 August 2014

When you get halfway to the north pole, I think you gotta leave your preconceived ideas at home and experience the cultural & geographical hospitality of that area. We liked it a lot. Pat was great. The room was really nice and the bedding very comfortable. The interior lodge was great for catching up on some work one morning while my wife was at the local spa, and the private exterior entrances made for easy in and easy out. FYI, they brew their Colectivo coffee better than the company does. It was perfect staging area for everyone of our excursions. We walked the town, we ate really well, the towny bars were friendly and the upscale Ale house has great beer. We are going back to this fall and taking the kids!

Room Tip: There is a east side and west side to the property with exterior private entrances. The east side is...

We have been staying at the Acorn for many years and this was our 3rd trip this snowmobiling season. We have recommened the Acorn to many families and friends who now stay here when they travel to that area and they have told us how great everything was. It is a very family friendly lodge and it is family owned so everthing is taken to heart. There is a nice sized pool and hottub in the Lodge which is a nice bonus. When lounging in the main lobby friends are easily made with other families. The owners socialize with guests in the lobby as well and if you are in need of anything they are more than willing to assist. Rooms are very clean and cleaned daily and rates are reasonable. From this location you can walk to many of the shops and restaurants. It is also nice to wake up to freshly brewed coffee and pastries. We always enjoy staying at the Acorn Lodge

My sister and I have stayed at the Acorn Lodge many times. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Boulder Junction! The owners, Sam and Wes, are like family and were from the very start. They are unbelievably accommodating and make you feel so welcome. The rooms are large and are probably the cleanest I have stayed in anywhere. Good coffee and breakfast treats in the morning. The lobby is the greatest! There is a wonderful fireplace that you can enjoy from the comfy couch in front of it. There are many other places to sit and relax in the lobby as well. All rooms have access through the hallway but they also have an outdoor access with chairs outside the door if you choose to sit outside. There is plenty of parking and you are in the heart of Boulder Junction - easy to walk anywhere and within short driving distance to other great restaurants nearby. There is a nice sized indoor pool and spa attached to the building. Nothing like sitting in the hot tub on a winter night watching the snow fall outside through the large windows. You can also see quite a few deer at "mealtime". The rates are very reasonable. Thanks again to Sam and Wes for a wonderful stay. We hate to leave and will definitely be back!

Everything about the Acorn Lodge is wonderful. From the cozy, relaxing atmosphere of the lodge lobby to the gracious, hospitality of the owners/managers; the acorn lodge is the perfect home away from home. We've stayed at the Acorn Lodge for about six years now and will continue coming back year after year. The rooms are comfortable with heavenly beds to sleep on after a long day of riding. The pool area is a wonderful place to relax, whether lounging in the hot tub or swimming laps in the pool. The lodge is just seconds walking distance to bars, restaurants, and little shops in the area. Every year I look forward to our vacation(s) in the Northwoods, thanks to the Acorn Lodge and it's owners, who have become like family over the years. Highly recommend this charming, friendly little lodge.

Room Tip: Most rooms have two very comfortable queen beds. There is a twin size "cot" you can reques...

Six of us started in Merrill, Wi. backpacking north on our snowmobiles. We were running a little behind our intended schedule and ended up unannounced at the Acorn Lodge at 9:30 pm. We were greeted with a very warm welcome, checked in and retired to our large, very nice and extremely clean rooms. The next morning, after a hot shower with tons of pressure, we had coffee with the owners and expressed our gratitude for their hospitality. We thanked them again and headed north into the U.P. Having snowmobiled up north for 25 years, I have stayed in many different places. We were so impressed with the hospitality and accommodations at the Acorn Lodge we modified our route to run back through Boulder Junction. We weren't disappointed, the second stay was just as good as the first. Thanks Wes and Sam for everything, we will be back....

Highly recommend anyone staying near boulder junction or looking for a north woods vacation to stay at the Acorn Lodge. I been up there multiple times with my family for the last 6 years. We all feel at home there. The owners and help have always been kind, courteous, and generous during our stay. They have nice cleanly rooms and a great lobby to lounge in. And let's not forget the hot tub after a long day of snowmobiling. Can't wait to be back there!
