Reviewed 27 August 2013

I stayed here over Memorial Day break with my wife and 2 kids. It was awesome as usual. Great family resort. The kids love it. I've stayed many times over the years, in many of the cottages...Maple, Birch, Driftwood, White Oak, Red Oak, Pine...all the cottages are great. Have been there with large groups of family as well. John and Jamie are great hosts. Can't say enough about the place. I've been coming up to St. Germain for many years and I've stayed in many resorts but I can honestly say that Estrold is the one place that I'll always want to go back to.

My husband's family has been staying at Estrold's for many years (even when it was Cox's). We continue this family tradition every year, usually staying in The Tamarack cabin but we have also stayed in The Pioneer and The Pine. Cabins are always clean and well taken care of. With 6 adults,1 teenager and 2 younger children (6 and 2), we had a great time...again. I like that they have activities for kids; my 6 year old was busy from morning til night. And she is still talking about Mr. John dressing up like Big Foot! The lake is beautiful and the fishing was awesome! I would definitely recommend this resort!

My family have been coming to the Estrold Resort for 30+ years. Our favorite cabin is the Bayview. We have stayed in that cabin almost every time. It's peaceful and relaxing, and close to town and activities. We love it up there! John and Jamie have done an amazing job updating the grounds and planning activities. John is always there if you need anything. And doesn't mind having kids follow him around and asking millions of questions. I have so many memories here and they keep getting better. We wouldn't stay anywhere else, never have, never will. Here's to many more years to come and
hope to have John, Jamie, and Luna around!

We enjoyed a fantastic trip with our kids and grandkids at The Estrold Resort in March. With 5 adults and 3 kids in our group, we stayed in The Pioneer. It provided us plenty of space to spread out, and with 4 private bedrooms to escape the inevitable chaos, everyone had a terrific trip. The cabin was very clean, roomy, and charming, the frozen lake views were beautiful, and the grounds were pretty and well-maintained. The younger crowd spent most of their time outside building forts, having snowball fights, sledding, and snowboarding down the boat launch. Everyone loved warming up around the stone fireplace sipping big mugs of hot chocolate afterwards and playing games together in the evenings. We also checked out the children’s museum in Eagle River (very cute) and an indoor waterpark in Minocqua. Looking forward to going back during fishing season, but really hoping to make Spring Break here a new family tradition! If you haven’t tried the Northwoods in the winter, you are cheating yourself out of some serious cold-weather fun.

Room Tip: The Pioneer is centrally located near the beach, docks, boat launch, and play ground. Great views of...

We recently retured from our annual family vacation to the Northwoods. This was our first stay at Estrold and it was a very nice experience. Our family consisted of 8 adults and 5 children under 7. We stayed in Snow-Drift, Pine, and Driftwood. All three were very clean and bug free upon arrival. You can tell that management takes pride in the cleanliness and look of their cabins. The resort has plenty to keep the kids occupied including a full tennis court, half basketball court, badmiton court, tether ball, game room with pool and ping-pong, sand volleyball court, play-ground and well groomed beach. The resort has a very large swim area and adequate beach to keep the kids somewhat contained. Although we've come to always expect a few minor issues with cabins, John was quick to respond to requests. He was always around the grounds, even posting his cell number if he needed to leave. They also have a daily acdtivity including fishing contest, potluck, smore's roast, movie night, and scavenger hunt. Hopefully we will return again next year.

My family began visiting the Estrold (then Cox's Estrold) in 1978, and we have gathered there every year since. The group changes from year to year, but it's always a time that we focus on family and fun. The resort is quiet and peaceful, but the new managers have incorporated lots of activities for people to do, the perfect balance. We have stayed at the Bay View, Spruce, Pine, Pioneer, and Tamarak. We found all but the Pine to be clean and comfortable (but our stay there was several years ago, before the new management). I agree with the person who said new beds were in order. We always stay in the Bay View and the beds do sag and cause backaches, but we don't sleep much (too much fun to be had), so it's never ruined our vacation. We love the Estrold and plan on coming for many summers to come.

Thank you very much for the review Kate and we are happy to hear the positive feedback. We have been slowly replacing beds around the resort and will continue to do so to help correct this problem, we definitely understand that a good nights sleep is an essential part of vacation :-)

My husband and I first came here 8 years ago for our honeymoon, wonderful place for fishing, relaxing and just getting away from it all. The new owners have done so much and makes sure your stay is pleasant. It is an absolutely great place to stay!
