Shaffer Park Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Crivitz
Reviewed 25 August 2013

My brother's family raves about Shaffer's, so I was looking forward to staying there. There are two motel buildings; the east side (closer to the pool) is the newer of the two, & has bigger showers. Dad & I were on the west side. The room was clean, but age & spotty maintenance were evident. The a.c. was old & hard to regulate, Sunday I couldn't get hot water in the shower until nearly 8 a.m. (Someone staying on the east side said they had no cold water at that time). The shower curtain in our unit didn't keep the water inside the stall. If you don't want to endanger yourself on a wet-slick floor; bring a floor mat because none are provided. The cleaning staff refused to provide extra towels & the ones that are provided are thin, small, & harsh. If you need extra towels (for use at the pool, for example) or prefer soft towels, bring your own. While there are outdoor activities available in the area, if bad weather keeps you inside, expect to be bored. As previously said, there is no WiFi, & TV reception was uneven. Most of the time there were two channels, sometimes only one. The pool was lovely & clean, row boats are available for fishing. I would have liked trails for hiking the countryside, there were none, although the road that runs through the resort isn't busy. Shaffer's is okay. Not very good, certainly not great, just okay.

Room Tip: Ask for the east side if you plan on using the pool.

We recently stayed at shaffers for a kind of family reunion getaway. Our family has been coming up to that area for over 60 years and have dined at shaffers every time. After a death in the family our times coming up have dropped considerably. Three families decided to come up to shaffers for the weekend. Upon arriving it brought back so many old memories that brought tears to my eyes. We had three generations on this trip and it was a relaxing one to say the least. We opened the room door to a musty smell that quickly disappeard after putting the old a/c on. It cooled quickly but was hard to keep a solid temp. The drapes didnt close all the way. We opened the fridge up to a black coating of mold over the whole fride so I went to the office. She gave us some cleaning solution and we wiped it down and then the cleaning ladty cleaned it. The lady in the office wanted to know if my wife was a "neat freak" but I just said no. There is no excuse for not being clean. Old is ok if it still works and is clean. I went to shower before dinner and I got three weak streams that could pee faster. I asked the other lady in the office she came down and turned the head to no prevail and said we dont have pressure like the big city. The next day I took off the head and cleaned out all the sand and silt to get a great shower stream. Old but clean and works ok. They have a great view, nice pool, great and I mean great chicken dinner{THE BEST ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY HANDS DOWN} but you order and wait before being seated which is great for his bar business {high priced drinks} but tough on time. The place needs some more attention to the little things. $100 plus a night is about right for what you get on paper but the condition of what you get makes you wonder. We still loved our trip there is tons to do. Daves Falls, tubing from pestigo river camp grounds was fun. We will try a different place next time to compare but will come back for chicken!!

We did a mid week 2 night stay. Entering the room there was an odor, probably from older carpeting, although it was clean and in great shape, but overall when we walked in and saw our room we were pretty impressed. Large living area with a rocker, sofa sleeper, double bed, dining table and a very nice kitchenette. Off the living area was another bedroom with more privacy and a nice bathroom with shower. There is air conditioning, although if you open the windows there's a nice breeze, television with a few channels, no cable but the picture was good, (for those of you that want to watch the news or have smaller kids you wouldn't have a problem), TV also looked like you could bring a game player in for hook up. Only downside no wi-fi. Kitchenette had all the equipment you need for meals both cooking and eating, fridge size was a plus!
Our main purpose was for golf and that famous Shafer's Chicken. DeSmidts Golf Course & Country Club is located about 2 miles down the road with a very nice 18 hole course. Shopping in Crivitz is also nearby, about 5 miles or so and of course Shafer's Resturant is right on the grounds. The room came with a rowboat so we also did a little fishing right outside our room on the Peshtigo River. The pool area was large and clean.
Depending upon what you're interests are, we thought it was a great location, golf, fishing, eating, shopping all convenient. The room was a great value and the staff were very helpful and friendly when making the reservation and also check-in & check-out. There was a storm the night before and they were very quick to clean the pool area and have the boats ready when we got there. We definately will do this again sometime in the future.
