We loved the Chanticleer for its all-round value in a tucked-away part of Wisconsin's recreational landscape. The lodge-like property sits on the shore of the nation's longest chain of lakes, which attracts a steady parade of boaters. Most stop at the Chanticleer's bar, which by 5 p.m. is a frenzy of friendly activity. From the bar, inn guests can slide into the restaurant for a fish dinner, then head for the hay a short walk away, all without having to navigate a car. What could be better? Our room was clean and comfortable, and had a large deck and lakeside view. Family-owned, the Chanticleer has been around for a long time; delightful black-and-white photographs in the rooms showcase the property back more than 50 years. Glamorous? No. Fun? Yes! Be sure to reserve for dinner when you reserve a room. The place is popular with locals.
