Welcome to Lake Rest Resort

Lake Rest Resort offers lodging, overlooking beautiful, quiet Little Spider Lake in Arbor Vitae Wisconsin. We are located less than 10 miles west of St. Germain and less than 5 minutes from Downtown Minocqua Wisconsin. Our homes are fully furnished, comfortable and cozy, lying in the heart of the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin and are a perfect getaway for rest and play no matter the season. We are just inside the Northern Highland State Forest with a large stand of 60’ – 80’ White Pine trees surrounding our 8 acre parcel.


Nestled amongst the tall White Pines is “Jim’s Hideaway”, a beautiful five bedroom, three bath executive home. With the large great room and fireplace (20’ x 30’) this outstanding home has been the home for two weddings, as well as two proposals! This home has the character for some blissful time, in a crowd, or alone.
