Welcome to Big Woods Resort, a family owned and operated resort for over 50 years providing the finest in Wisconsin lodging accommodations for an enjoyable Northern Wisconsin vacation. Big Woods is located on the west shore of Big St. Germain Lake. All of our homes have a beautiful view of the lake, which offers you a great way to start your day with a gorgeous Northwoods sunrise. We also enjoy some of the calmest water on the lake which is great for a day of water fun or fishing.

Big Woods in WinterBig Woods is open year around. All four seasons offer an abundance of things to do.

Come stay in Spring for some great fishing.

During Summer you can enjoy swimming, cookouts, campfires, volleyball games, and all around family fun.

Fall offers one of the most relaxing times to visit with the trees turning brilliant shades of colors, many craft shows to wander through, and pumpkins and scarecrows to brighten your stay.

For the Winter the Bo-Boen snowmobile trails are right out your door providing wonderful snowmobiling vacation opportunities. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and downhill ski hills are also just a short drive away.

The new St. Germain bike trail is now completed and it is just outside your door and you could ride or walk all the way to Boulder Junction and beyond.

For the golf enthusiast is the beautiful St. Germain Golf Course. Located a 1/2 mile down the road, this course is fun and challenging for all levels of players.

Let us provide you with a clean, homey cottage, so all you have to worry about is how soon you can come see us again.
