Make Manitowish Waters your next getaway—choose from 20 great vacation rentals

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

Beautiful lake view from the house, porch and deck. Clean cottage with ample cookware we needed to prepare and eat our meals at the cottage. Quiet lake and road. Caretakers were attentive when I asked for a fix for the kayaks. I was unexperienced and disappointed with the type of kayaks you had available (holes in the bottom so you'd sit in water). Caretaker purchased plugs for one of the kayaks, but without an adult life jacket (boat cushions instead), I never felt comfortable taking it out.

Great house. On the lake, we use the two kayaks multiple times. You can kayak down to Dixie’s for breakfast or lunch. Great bike paths.

We have been coming to this house the last couple of years. We have made so many family and friends memories here that I so devastated it will no longer be available for rent after April of 2022. I went to book right away for next summer only to find out it will k no o longer be rented out. The house, Vacasa, location is truly at its best and that fireplace is magical. To whom ever owns this home, thank you for sharing it with us. We are so grateful to have had the time there.

Where is Manitowish Waters, WI?

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.

Things to do in Manitowish Waters, WI

It’s no secret that gorgeous Northwoods nature is a big draw for visitors. The area is home to over 3,200 lakes, streams, and rivers, and is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and people seeking a weekend of quiet relaxation. Guests flock to our Manitowish Waters vacation rentals to experience boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and fishing in these inviting waters. There’s no shortage of land-based activities, either, with miles of hiking and mountain biking.

Did you know that Wisconsin is the leading producer of cranberries in the U.S.? In October, Manitowish Waters celebrates the onset of gorgeous autumn colors—another great reason to visit—with Cran-A-Rama. This festival includes an arts and crafts fair, cranberry cooking contest, free tours of the local cranberry marshes, pontoon boat rides, and more. Summers in Manitowish Waters mean a Music in the Park series every Sunday evening. There’s even a floating retail boutique that cruises around the lakes selling “Up North” themed clothing.
