“We have had the pleasure of staying at the Zaugg’s Resort for the Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Championships for the last four years and highly recommend a visit in winter or summer. To say that we feel grateful to have found this place is an understatement. The beauty of the North Woods is breathtaking and their property is tucked away down a snowy road to Anvil Lake. The pictures almost can’t do it justice. Every chalet has a great view of the lake, but is far enough from the others to feel private. The property is very well maintained and they routinely do improvements. This year, the television was upgraded and the bathrooms given a makeover. The chalets are spacious and sleep the team of 7 plus 2 – 3 spouses comfortably. Plus, with two bathrooms and full kitchen, we sleep, shower, and eat comfortably. As the group’s “chef,” I appreciate that!
Within a 15 – 20 minute drive are numerous restaurants, though not all stay open during the off season. Trig’s, the grocery store, is well-stocked and we frequently choose to cook meals at the chalet instead of eating out. Since it’s not bbq season in February, we cook indoors!
Zaugg’s offers not just close proximity to the hockey tournament (15 minutes by car), but there are tons of activities to do on their property and nearby. Pam and Chuck always have great recommendations and I think they truly love to see their guests make the most of their North Woods trip. I enjoyed cross-country skiing (equipment was loaned out free of charge) this year and visited their horses and nature trails (ask about the one where you can feed finches!). Snowmobile rentals and trails are nearby and our group always plans a day for that. The biggest treat this year was a mini hockey rink on the lake! The boys all said it was the best part of the trip and played there every day they could.
Chuck and Pam excel with their hospitality and really work to make their resort a family friendly vacation destination. They frequently pop in to see how the trip is going, offer activity suggestions, and visit. This year, they really went above and beyond to assist with a personal emergency. We are definitely planning a return trip next winter as well as a summer visit to enjoy the warm weather amenities. Highly recommend for families, groups, or couples!”
“Had a great week’s vacation snowmobiling. The place is in a great location. The house is perfect for a large group, plenty of room for all your gear. Parking was great for trailers. The inside of the house is very nice. Had a great time at 12 pines for dinner and drinks and it’s close by. The owners are great people. Will be back soon!”
“We all love it! Hope to be back!”
“My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed every stay at Zaugg’s Resort. The Chalet’s amenities and surrounding scenery exceeded our expectations, which is why we return every year.”
“Our second year at the Zaugg’s Resort. Each time we enjoyed a peaceful week with opportunities for fun in the sun and delightful swimming. Our hosts are thoughtful and helpful.”
