Fawn Lake Resort

      First a little history of the Sloan family and its relationship with Fawn Lake Resort. Raymond and Mae Sloan purchased the resort back in 1952, they moved up to the Northwoods sight unseen. Ray and Mae with their three daughters and two sons started on the adventure of their lives. Without any experience they ran an American Plan Resort serving meals to the guests of the 8 cottages in the main lodge. This continued until the mid 1970’s. They had two more sons along the way to help with the operations. In 1984, a tornado claimed the life of Ray Sloan Sr and reduced the resort to its present size. Ray’s presence and hosting the weekly fish fry are missed by all who knew him. This tradition ended with him.

       Currently we have 2 cabins that we rent out weekly May- October. They are both two bedroom cottages, that sleep 4, but there is additionall sleeping capacity. Both cottages are along the shores of beautiful Fawn Lake. They each come with a fishing boat and private dock on Fawn Lake. There is also access to another boat for fishing on Lumen Lake, a lake adjacent to the resort. These cabins are modern, yet keep the nostalgia of the era in which they were built. Your cabin provides almost everything you need for a great vacation. Each cabin has a fire pit with all your wood provided. You need to bring your personal towels and food. All other housekeeping utensils and bed linen are provided. Life vests and boat cushions are provided, so you don’t have to bring these bulky items.

        The sand beach and large play area of this Estate are second to none. Vacationers have been coming back every year, some on their 3rd generation. There are beach toys provided for your use, including paddle boats, kayaks and canoe. The estate consists of about 200 acres of land and  surrounded by several square miles of the American Legion State Forest, for your hiking or biking enjoyment.

         Come stay with us, you will not be disappointed. The fishing is fun. This is a no wake lake ( no big motors allowed ). The peace and tranquility of the Northwoods is only broken by the cry of the native loons that nest on the lake. Come see the quiet side of the Northwoods. Fawn Lake Resort is located in north central Wisconsin, about an hour north of Wausau and a 10 miles south of the Town of Minocqua. This is Wisconsin’s premiere vacation destination. The three surrounding counties are home to the greatest concentration of natural lakes in the world ( about 3,000 lakes). Fine dining is only a short drive away. There are 5 public golf courses close by for you enjoyment. The Bearskin bike trail is nearby.

 Come up and stay where nature lingered longer.

 Your Hosts,

 David and Penny Sloan
