“The "real" Northwoods”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Staying at Estrolds was like a trip back in time of simplier days gone by. We stayed at the massive Poplar cabin which was biult log by log and right on the lake. John & Jamie our hosts could not have been nicer.Stunning views, Bald Eagles, Loons and of course plenty of fish. Can't wait to get back in the fall!

Room Tip: Lofts are a little steep so be sure to put the kids up there.

Using their rustic surrounding as inspiration, Estrold Resort owner's John & Jami Burger hosted one of the most touching, fun and relaxing weddings I have ever seen. The Estrold Resort features remarkable lake views and beautiful grounds that leave a lasting impression. Coupled with the natural beauty of Little St. Germain Lake, Birch trees and tall pines; the intimate ceremony was breathtaking. The tented reception featured rustic wild flowers, fantastic catering, the perfect bartender, a photo booth of memories, and one of the best dancing marathons of all time.
The cabins are clean, cozy and well maintained. The resort grounds are spotless and there is always someone in the office to greet you with a smile and help in any way. There is something so incredible about a wedding weekend in the northwoods; it's intimate, relaxing, the scenery is divine, and you can take advantage of as much or as little as The Estrold Resort has to offer. The memories of this special wedding on the water will last for a lifetime.

My husband and I have been to the Estrold resort 2 times now. The first was in the winter and it was a wonderful weekend that came to an end way to fast! The resort is quiet and clean and the owners John and Jami are excellent hosts! Great snowmobiling, ice fishing and lots of curling up by the fire with a good book! We had our baby girl with us and they had everything we needed for her sleeping and even a nice rocking chair which is hard to find when on a vacation with a baby!

The second time we came up to stay we came in the spring and met up with a group of friends and we all stayed in the Snowdrift cabin. It was wonderful! The kitchen was fully stocked so all we did was grab some food from the store on the way in and we were set for the week! There were 6 of us and our baby staying in the cabin and it was more then enough space to all hang out together. The fireplace was put to use everynight and we had alot of fun! There is also a grill at the cabin that we didnt use but I thought was a great idea! Will have to use it next time! We had an amazing time and will definatly be back soon!

This was my first visit to Estrold Resort and I promise, it will not be my last!! I had the pleasure and honor of visiting the owner's of the resort, Mr. & Mrs. John Burger and stayed in one of the cabins overlooking the lake! Beautiful, breathtaking, relaxing, calming, and one of a kind!! If anyone is planning a trip the Northwoods in WI, I definitely recommend Estrold Resort! You will agree!!

Estrold Resort is awesome! Myself & 7 friends stayed at Red & White Oak cabin which are connected duplex style you can also rent seperately & there were still a double & 2 twin bed lofts open! The cabins have a deck for each side right next to the huge lake. There are boats & canoes to rent. It was perfect for a large group of friends & couples! The new owners are great people & will answer any questions and help you get around! Fireplaces in each side of the cabin, tv's, cards, & games. This was an amazing quality time vaca with friends & I'm sure it would be with family as well!

Room Tip: I like to sleep in so I picked a basement room which was nice and quiet and dark!

We escaped Northern MN for a weekend away to snowmobile and ice fish. There were 8 of us total (4 couples) and stayed in the Popple Cabin. It was perfect! We absolutely loved it. There was plenty of space for all of us and all of our stuff! We loved the big table in the kitchen that was perfect for all of us to gather around to eat and play games. The huge fireplace in the middle of the cabin was the perfect touch! The resort owners John and Jami provided us with the best hospitality around. While the weather didn't work out for snowmobiling, we enjoyed a full day out on the lake to ice fish and we caught plenty!!! Our group decided before we even left that we will be making this an annual trip. Thank you John and Jami for a fabulous weekend vacation, we will be back again next year!

Our family has enjoyed many stays (11 Years) at The Estrold Resort on the South Bay of Little St. Germain Lake. The cabins are so clean and pleasantly decorated with a northwoods theme. The kitchen was spotless and well supplied. We enjoyed the fireplace on chilly evenings. There was plenty of firewood close by. The young adults enjoyed spending time by the lakefront fire pit. The rest of us sat on the pier and did some stargazing. The resort has kayaks and we loved paddling around the calm bay. Little St. Germain Lake is large, but is made up of bays and doesn't get very rough. The little ones played and splashed on the sand beach every afternoon. Some of the bigger kids swam out to the raft. Lots of pan fish caught off the pier, too. There is a game room and a tennis court to keep everybody busy. The area restaurants are great! Breakfast at the Wolf Pack Cafe is a tradition and afternoon libation at the Tiki Bar is becoming a tradition. Coffee at the Red Canoe Coffee Shop is delicious! We are already looking forward to our next visit to the Estrold Resort.
