Make Manitowish Waters your next getaway

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

Unit is well appointed and clean, our second stay in it. Resort is very quiet this late in the season and staying off nights. Wifi and TV didn't work for 2 of 4 days.

The Condo was beautiful and everything was new. We loved it. Space at the dock for our boat, everything that was needed in the kitchen. Had no issues at all. The location for Manitowish Waters was great. You are right next door to the Marina, but was not an issue. Got a Musky on the chain. Would love to come back again.

The house was very accommodating for our family which included our 1 year old granddaughter. Beautiful views and home was clean and ready for us.

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
