Delta Lodge's 12 lakeside cabins are generously spaced along 1200 feet of shoreline on Lake Everett. The lodge grounds encompass 70 acres and border two lakes.
Each cabin is attractively furnished and has knotty pine paneling throughout. The living room has a couch and several easy chairs. In addition to the complete kitchen, each cabin has an outdoor grill. A two-bedroom cabin has a queen or double bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the second bedroom. The three-bedroom cabins and larger cabins each have their own bed configurations.) There is a bathroom with a shower, sink, toilet and mirror. All cabins have a screened porch. Many cabins also have a deck and/or a gas fireplace. The fireplaces are controlled by a thermostat. The cabins do not have phones or
TVs. Many people prefer to take a break from these intrusions, however, you are
welcome to bring your own TV for local reception. There is a phone in the lodge
lobby and a TV in the game room.
There are two cabins, which are of recent construction. Cabins #11 and #12 were built in 1993 and 1996, respectively. Cabin #9 ("the Animal House") predates 1900 and is ideal for large groups on a budget.
A boat pier on your cabin's lakeshore is shared by two cabins. A boat for your exclusive use is docked at this pier on Lake Everett.
We keep additional boats on Delta Lake for cabin guests to share. There are four kayaks, a canoe and paddleboat for everyone to share. The kayaks are especially popular as they make it possible to explore the lake individually. Picnic tables and Adirondack chairs are found throughout the grounds. Move them near your campfire pit to enjoy an evening of s'mores and stargazing.
Our swimming beach has a natural sand bottom and is known throughout the area for its crystal clear water. There is a 70' dock from which you can swim. Or, simply sit on one of the dock's Adirondack chairs and enjoy the view. Also central on the lodge grounds is the large picnic patio and the playground area. During the summer months we host a Monday night picnic on the patio.
PRIVATE LODGE FACILITIES...for you and your guests
Please consider the lodge as an extension of your cabin. Come up and enjoy the
TV, use the board games, cards and books in the lodge or take them back to your
cabin. Pick up tourist information - we frequently offer suggestions for
day trips. The lodge is a comfortable area in which to relax, play video
games or pool, watch TV, play cards or chat.
A frequently requested service is motor rental - for a
week or just a day. All ages enjoy boating. With a motor, families
can tour Delta Lake and the connecting lakes, seeing a variety of wildlife and
stopping for a picnic along the way. Cabin rental includes the use of a
boat on Lakes Everett and Delta.
Swimming Dock and Raft
Several things to keep in mind while packing - leave the
grill and coffee maker at home - cabins have these conveniences. Don't
forget to pack bath and kitchen towels/soap. Walking on the grounds at
night can be dark on cloudy nights - bring a flash light. The cabins have
TV hook-ups, bring your set from home if you enjoy this type of entertainment. A fan is always a good idea. (Don't forget your prescriptions!)
Fishing licenses are available at any bait & tackle shop
in Wisconsin, if you want to stop on the way up. If you prefer to wait
until you arrive, Mr. T's in Iron River is a good sporting goods shop.
The area has many different sources of entertainment. Hayward's Lumberjack
shows, go carts and waterslide keep kids of all ages busy. Wilderness Walk
(also in Hayward) is a nice park filled with fenced wilderness animals and a
petting zoo of domesticated animals and orphaned deer. Adult deer roam
free throughout the park.
Cabins #11, #7 and #10
Bayfield, a historic town on the coast of Lake Superior,
offers many unique shops and is the access city to the Apostle Islands National
Lakeshore. Take a ferry trip to Madeline Island or an inter-island tour and
stop at one of the other islands for a tour of a historic lighthouse. Lake
Superior kayak trips can be arranged in Bayfield. The Great Lakes Visitor
Center, located on your way to Bayfield, offers a history of the Great Lakes
Area with a museum and short movie.
The Benson Ranch, just a few miles from Delta Lodge,
offers trail riding in small groups. A canoe trip down the Brule River is
another excursion to consider.
During the summer, please keep Monday Night open for the
lodge picnic. We provide brats, hot dogs, lemonade and beer. Each
cabin brings a dish to pass. Everyone enjoys this opportunity to get to
know each other a little better.
Bring your fishing rods, bikes and toys. We look
forward to seeing you!!
