Welcome to Deerwood Resort

Consider Deerwood your home on the lake

Far-removed from everyday traffic and noise, yet still close to shopping, restaurants, and activities, Deerwood Resort offers you the opportunity to experience an abundance of wildlife while exploring the pristine Big Portage Lake. Each of our cabins has been meticulously renovated to give you modern amenities while enjoying the vintage camp charm. Built-in 1935, the resort has been family-owned for over 70 years. Near enough to small-town shops and supplies, but far enough away to recharge and rejuvenate!

Relaxation & fun at your doorstep

Deerwood Resort has something for everyone, from plenty of lake amenities to quiet reading nooks, to a pickleball/basketball court. All that is available without leaving the resort property. Beyond Deerwood Resort there is plenty of local shopping, dining, hiking, and scenic drives.

“Had a splendid time in the tranquility of our cabin – and in the adventure around us. What an ideal location to explore Sylvania and the Wisconsin wilderness. The cottage has the best of both worlds – peace, quiet, and beautiful amenities. Thank you for the hospitality! We will be back!”

“We had a lovely, quiet weekend away from the city! The beaver and baby geese swimming in the lake were a nice addition to the loon each morning at sunrise – what a great cabin. Thank you and we will be back!”
