Luxury accomodations, great views, perfect ammeniteis right in the middle of it all. Don't look any further. We had a group of 17 people and everything was thought of by the management and staff, right down to the smallest details. Planning our next arrival and we just left today!

We stayed at Chippewa Retreat for Memorial Day weekend 2013, the Duck Blind Lower unit. The resort is a beautiful, clean, perfect and posh, under the pines on the shore of the lake. There is nothing not to like, no kidding. It is virtually brand new, everything works, and it is huge. I felt like we were staying in a fancy beach villa in the Caribbean. (OK with mosquitoes). Duck Blind lower has its own deck and boat dock, right outside the living room. There is a sun porch, the master bedroom and master bath are enormous. Huge stone fireplace in the living room with big screen TV (in case it rains). Also the resort manager was incredibly helpful and the staff was all smiles. No I don't work there and they didn't give me a big discount to write this. You'll love it -- way nicer than any place I've ever seen "up north."

Room Tip: We stayed right on the water, it was great.

Our family decided to stay at this resort for the weekend, and what a great decision! It's extremely comfortable and peaceful, and there were plenty of activities to keep us entertained. We hiked, went in the paddle boats and canoes, played basketball, etc. We stayed in the Nest unit, and the view of the lake was awesome. Our children truly enjoyed spotting all the wildlife: the birds, otters, and beavers by the lake. This resort has the perfect balance of comfortable "city" living villas with nature. Downtown Manitowish Waters was close by for all our supplies. The on site manager, Mary Beth, was always available and very friendly! (And nearby was the Holiday Riding Academy, which we went horseback riding and go-karting.) A truly memorable experience, we plan on returning soon!

We recently visited Chippewa Retreat Resort, we came across it as a last minute get away for Memorial Day weekend.

It surpassed all of our expectations - honestly, we were just looking for something reasonable to get away with the kids (2 and 5).

We arrived late Friday night to a spectacular sunset view over the lake. As we found our way to our villa - we opened to door and were BLOWN away - the spacious layout with beautiful north woods decor.

We stayed at the Lily Pad Upper - 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, two bedrooms each had 2 twin beds and the master had a queen size bed with a huge bathroom and BREATH TAKING views of the lake! Each morning we woke up to looking at the lake out the windows and patio doors.

The housekeeping services were beyond our expectations - after a morning of boating we returned to a tidy villa and they even took the time to place the kids stuffed animals on their beds :)

This resort has so much to offer - paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, pool, tennis/basketball court as well as a double sided fire place by pool and a camp style fire pit over looking the lake.

We were so impressed after just 1 night - we booked our Labor Day stay the next morning.

I promise you will NOT be disappointed while staying at Chippewa Retreat!

Room Tip: We stayed in Lakeside Villas - directly on the water - half of the villa is actually OVER the water...
