Northwoods residents can help bring fame to an area resort by casting an online vote. Brekke’s Fireside Resort was named one of the twelve cover finalists for the 2017 Wisconsin Lodging Directory.
Every year the Wisconsin Hotel & Lodging Association calls for lodging members from across the state to enter photos that showcase the excitement and beauty that Wisconsin Lodging has to offer. The winning photo is featured on the cover of the Wisconsin Lodging Directory for the upcoming year.
After the first round of judging, Brekke’s Fireside Resort was named a finalist. Brekke’s is also the only finalist north of Highway 29 competing against lodges from areas like Lake Geneva and Door County.
“We are so excited that a quality Northwoods Resort like Brekke’s has made it to the finals of a statewide contest, let alone be the only finalist north of Highway 29,” said Lauren Sackett, Tourism & Event Coordinator at the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce. “The photo they submitted is beautiful and we really hope the Northwoods community will vote.”
