“Beautiful Location, Needs a Good Cleaning”
Reviewed 11 June 2007

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 Contrary to other reviews and a coworker's experience, we found the Pointe to be very dirty and rather outdated.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!

We have been staying at the Pointe for the past 5-6 years. Needless to say we really enjoy it. We book about a year in advance to get the room that best fits us. We have booked a 2 bedroom room and it comfortably sleeps 6 adults. The couch pulls out in a full bed. I believe every unit has a beautiful view of the lake. They have their own dock that you can reserve a slip, so you can bring a boat if you enjoy the water. The only problem we have ever had is the A/C. It isnt central air, every room has its own. It does a pretty good job but some areas gets a little warm (Like about 72). Sometimes tha A/C freezes up and you cant do anything about it, but just let it thaw out. But once again let me stress that is a very small inconvience.

We are considering The Point for our wedding. The rooms are very nice with kitchen and beautiful view of the lake -- pretty affordable. Nice and quiet, with posted quiet hours starting at 10 p.m. They have places for campfires and a nice pier. The traffic is a little noisey when you are outside, but from our balcony, we could not hear. Just request to not be in building 4, which is right by the busy road. Nice and clean too. Great pool .. good cardio equip in the fitness room.

We arrived in Minocqua a day before our reservations began at another hotel but we didn't think it would be a problem. Unfortunately, it was. Nearly everywhere was booked. We found a room at the Americinn for $170 but choked on the price for a nothing special room. Instead, we went down the road to find The Point. There we got a one bedroom suite with a small kitchen area--all for the same price! And it was on the water to boot! It was lovely! The people were very friendly and helpful. Sitting on the dock by the water was relaxing. A nice place to stay. Highly recommend.
