Vacations or quick getaways are all great ways to spend time in January when the earth seems to be standing still. But what's a winter vacation without snow, recreation and a warm cabin to come home to?

Located in Minocqua, Wisconsin, we offer excellent amenities and are located close to a variety of activities for the perfect getaway. Let's explore just a few of the wonderful offerings our area has during the snowy season.

Snow & Recreation

Snowmobiling is one of the most popular winter sports, especially for guests of Birch Trail Resort. Lined with a few snowmobile trails on property, and located within miles to hundreds of more trails, Birch Trail makes an excellent lodging option being central to all the fun.

Another popular winter activity is skiing, whether it be cross-country skiing or downhill skiing. Minocqua Winter Park, located nearby, offers downhill and cross-country skiing, snowtubing and ice skating on their vast park designed for winter outdoor enthusiasts.

It wouldn't be a winter vacation in the Northwoods without ice fishing on any one of our hundreds of lakes. Guests at Birch Trail enjoy the convenience of walking out onto Amber Lake just a few feet away from their cabin door. Drop a line, pull up a chair and relax the afternoon away.

What else makes an unforgettable winter vacation but the natural surroundings outside your cabin walls. Set in a winter wonderland backdrop, Birch Trail Resort offers snow covered trees, a frozen, semi-private lake, and all the winter wildlife you can ask for. Whether you prefer to enjoy the views from inside the warmth of the cabin or you like to bundle up and step out, you'll experience the true, untouched beauty of the Northwoods.
