When Wisconsin locals hear the term “Up North,” they think of pristine lakes, sun-dappled forests, and quiet solitude. It’s a broad colloquial term, and some folks can’t agree exactly where the dividing line to “North” begins, but the response is always the same: nostalgia for easy days spent lakeside in northern Wisconsin. Our Manitowish Waters vacation rentals are a perfect example of this.

Recent Manitowish Waters vacation rental reviews

House was immaculate (except for a moldy shower curtain liner, so we used the other shower). Comfortable king bed and 2 full baths, as well as 2 other bedrooms. Kitchen was well-stocked. There were even toys in the closet. Very easy access (2 min drive) to Pea Patch, Manny's, Angler's and Aurora Borealis, grocery store, and hardware store. I tried contacting the person Vacasa named as my contact about the curtain, but never got a response. We also had wifi issues (which turned out to be a region-wide issue) and called the 1-800 number, but no one got back to us about that either. Overall, I would stay at this house again.

We're from the East Coast and were in the region for some other things with time to spare in between. As a change of pace (we usually spend time near the ocean), we decided to spend the extra days in a lake house cabin. This place was CLEAN and spacious for us! The lake view was everything and a perfect backdrop to our meals. We took this opportunity to recharge and explore the area at our own pace. The only cons were that the microwave oven didn't work (at least all the groceries I bought could be cooked stovetop) and it took a while to figure out what light switches were for where. Otherwise, I'm glad we got to experience the Northwoods.

We really enjoyed our trip to Manitowish Waters. The house was beautiful. We loved the view of the lake from the living room, bedroom and porch.. It was great that a canoe and kayaks were provided. It was also nice having walking trails right off the driveway. We wish that we would have stayed longer and can’t wait to go back!

The Northwoods are a special place for many families, couples, and solo travelers. Manitowish Waters is a small town located in this scenic area, just off of Route 51 for the perfect balance of accessibility and remoteness. The town’s small size—only 700 year-round residents—and abundance of locally-owned restaurants and shops add to the overall relaxed vibe.
