Thought I had reviewed this restaurant / lodge earlier but apparently it didn't get filed..We had 2 tables of folks .. all had full breakfasts. All at our table were very pleased with their meals. Service was excellent... Only glitch is they need to figure out how to accommodate customers (couples) who ask to receive separate bills. Just plain should... More

We stayed 2 nights at Voss Birchwood Lodge in one of the 1 bedroom cabins. The cabins are very nostalgic "up north" feeling which we liked. However the reason for average rating was the proximity to Hwy 51 (too close and a lot of traffic noise) and the cabin was not very clean and in need of repair/updates. The floors... More

Our group of 7 arrived without a reservation late morning on a Sunday for breakfast. As one of the only places in town for breakfast they were certainly busy, but were able to accommodate us. This historic lodge is one of the nicest places for dining, you have a nice view of the lake, and the history of Voss's to... More

I recently stayed in one of the cabins at the resort, delightful atmosphere, the cabin we stayed in reminded me of when I was a young child a step back into time. The staff was wonderful and very pleasant, we also had dinner at the main lodge and the food was excellent very big portions. I would recommend to make... More

Attended a wedding in the area. There was a mistake at the lodge that was supposed to have a block of rooms for wedding guests. Everything else right in town was booked so we ended up here. I will preface this by saying that the hospitality was outstanding. The facilities, not so much. It may have been a nice place... More

Thank you for your review. As an historic Old Wisconsin lodge our furnishings are in keeping with the era we represent. We are history and reminiscence...not a modern motel. We represent 107 years of Wisconsin history and advertise as such. There are a few newly appointed motels in the area that I'm sure you would enjoy. Thanks again for your... More

Beautiful area of the state, many miles of paved trials. The Lodge is a time machine. Now the hospitality out ways everything. Ruthie is one of the most interesting women I have ever met.

We stayed in the Birches cabin for a long weekend. It is definitely throw back to the 50's, exactly as we expected. The cabin had all the essentials that we expected such as a full kitchen, bathrooms, charcoal grill and electricity. Some of the lighting was very dim or could not find a switch to use and we had a... More

We stayed in a two room, one bedroom cabin (Sleepy Hollow) overnight on our way to Bayfield. It was very cozy. The location was right on Spider Lake. The grounds were very nice.

We were only here for a night, passing through. I almost gave up because you have to call for reservations AND get the right person on the phone, which took me several tries. The main lodge is very cool, with its dining room, historic photos, and $5 Old-Fashioneds. However, our daughter was "creeped out" by the 1950s cabin we stayed... More

We didn't stay in the lodge, itself but rented one of the cabins in Aug. of 2012. It was VERY rustic and made me feel like we were in the deep woods!! I'm saying this in a positive way!! I'm not one of those people that expect an "old" cabin to be freshly remodeled to modern standards....... that ain't me!!... More
