Who says you have to go out and explore on your Northwoods getaway? In fact, some of Oneida County’s resorts are so welcoming you might not go further than the outdoor fire pit—or maybe the pier for a nice sunset photo. Here are a few northern Wisconsin resorts where it’s just fine to stay on site.
Northernaire Resort, Three Lakes
No matter what you’re looking for, Northernaire has options galore—luxury condos, cabins and vacation homes on the shores of Deer Lake in Three Lakes. All of Northernaire’s rentals are available year-round, which means visitors can take advantage of the great things Oneida County has to offer in every season. But with perks like a seasonal outdoor hot tub, indoor pool, and tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, you might not even want to leave.
Old Stoney’s Northwoods Resort, Arbor Vitae
Recharge and relax on the shores of Big Arbor Vitae Lake at Old Stoney’s Northwoods Resort.
