It might not have the word “resort” in its name, but the Heartwood Conference Center & Retreat is everything a modern resort should be and more. Surrounded by two lakes, the Namekagon National Scenic Riverway, and 700 acres of pristine wooded wonderland, Heartwood is the perfect place for business and pleasure. Why not mix them?
When guests arrive they’re immediately treated to the natural splendor of deep woods Wisconsin. Marketing Director Dirk Vanderbent says that this is one of his favorite parts of the Heartwood experience: "I always enjoy seeing the reaction our guests have when they arrive. From the moment they enter the property, they're amazed at the scenery, the well-maintained grounds, and the quiet seclusion."
After the initial shock wears off, you’ll want to go and check out your accommodations. Hotel rooms, cabins, and cottages are all available, and each are incredibly spacious and contemporarily decorated. All group sizes can be accommodated, be you a couple on a romantic weekend getaway or an extended family gathering for a reunion. "Our guests are surprised at how new and modern our accommodations are. They love the rustic charm combined with 21st century amenities," says General Manager Michael Trudeau. Undoubtedly you (and your family) will too.
From there, a whole world of amazing Wisconsin activities is accessible to you. In the summer, families can hit the beach to enjoy the spectacular weather. Parents can sit back and relax on the soft sand beach while the kids experience swimming, tubing, and the huge water trampoline. Go on a bike ride along the more than 20 miles of groomed trails, or play a round on the 24-hole championship frisbee golf course. In the winter, Heartwood offers snowshoeing, sledding, and cross-country skiing for those that want to experience the snowy Wisconsin wonderland.
All that physical activity is going to leave even the most intrepid vacationer low on energy. Recharge your batteries at the on-site Pine Lodge Restaurant, then relax with a hayride on a horse-drawn carriage or a campfire under the clear night sky.
All of this family fun doesn’t mean that the “Conference Center” aspect of Heartwood is forgotten; on the contrary, Heartwood gives the “business” side of the retreat just as much attention as the “pleasure.” With 10,000 square feet of meeting spaces, your business will have more room for your meeting than you know what to do with.
If you needed any more convincing as to why Heartwood should be your next vacation stop, the surrounding area is chock full of stores to shop, courses to golf, and lakes to fish. Unbridled variety and unmatched hospitality are central at Heartwood; why aren’t you already here?
