“Winter view overlooking the lake were beautiful”
Reviewed 30 January 2010

Great location in Minocqua. We enjoyed a two bedroom 2 bath condo with several private balconies overlooking the Lake. The master bedroom with king bed was upstairs and master bath featured a large whirlpool tub and two sinks. Plenty of towels and kitchware were provided. Very nice check-in. First room had a smokey smell and they moved us right away. Second room was perfect. Would love to stay here in the summer too but beautiful in the winter also. No DVD player in the room and this would be a nice upgrade. A wonderful winter retreat.

me and my girlfriend spent New Year's holidays at the Pointe Hotel. first we went to see how the suite looks like. it was one of the most cozy and welcoming suite i've ever been in. and the view incredible. the whole stay proved to be very relaxing and full of good time. the staff, very friendly. actually i forgot my electric razor in my room and they mailed it to me the next day.
on the overall we enjoyed it very much, and will definetely come back.

The Pointe is a pretty nice hotel given the reasonable off-peak pricing. The rooms are spacious and have a nice kitchenette complete with a sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and dishes. They have very nice big screen TVs in the rooms and a deck. The place was fairly empty when I was there, so I was upgraded to a whirlpool room at no extra cost. It seems as if they have done some renovation recently like replacing carpet and televisions. Overall, a nice room. The only complaints I have are the whirlpool tub seemed a bit dirty when it ran, and the beds are pretty uncomfortable (I would trade a comfortable bed for a big screen TV any day).

We recently took our first trip to Minocqua. We had a great visit.
Our first room at The Pointe faced the road more than the lake. We were lucky that they were not full and they were able to move us to a much better location and a bigger room. The pool was nice and the location was great. Continental breakfast was so so. They advertised as having paddle boats (which my son was excited about) but they had just decided to sell them so that option wasn't available. Other than that we had a really nice time.

We stayed 4 nights in a one bedroom whirlpool unit in the later part of June 2007. The whirlpool unit is the same price as a standard one bedroom unit and has more amenities. This waterfront property has a hillside and wonderful setting so we could relax and refresh. Accomodations were very good and the Staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast included orange juice, coffee, tea, cereal, bagels, bread, some rolls and milk. It was just right. We slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room and it was more comfortable than our bed at home. Our friends enjoyed the comfort of the private one bedroom. Bikes, canoes, and paddleboats were available. We will be back soon to explore the many beautiful lakes and walking/biking trails.

  • Liked — The relaxation gained from the experience.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

We stayed 2 nights at The Pointe in a 1 bedroom whirlpool suite. Contrary to other reviews and a coworker's experience, we found the Pointe to be very dirty and rather outdated. The "fully equipped" kitchen was full of dirty dishes and utensils. There were spiders descending from the celing, and mold growing on the soap dispenser in the bathroom. When we pulled off the comforter on our bed, we found that there was no top sheet. Luckily, we were able to locate one in the extra linens in the room. The whirlpool was so dirty that we could not use it. Also, the continental breakfast consisted of plastic-wrapped bagels and orange juice. Our second morning there, there wasn't even coffee available.

Despite all these issues, the location was beautiful, especially the bald eagle we could see perched outside our bedroom window. Given the other positive reviews of this resort, I do hope that this was an isolated bad experience. However, we will not be back.

My husband and I just got back from a very relaxing stay at The Pointe. We had a one bedroom condo for 5 nights. No complaints! We wanted quiet and relaxation and that's what we got! Maid service was great, front desk staff was great.... very respectful of your privacy! We would go back definitely!
