All the latest from Inn on Lake Wissota


Winter at the Inn

Welcome, 2022! The Holidays are over, and we are now settling in to enjoy the peacefulness of winter here on Lake Wissota. The lake has frozen over, and a few brave souls have taken to the ice to try their hands at catching the wide variety of fish found in our lake. I’m still waiting to see if it turns into a scene from “Grumpy Old Men”! Regardless of whether you prefer ice fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing, shopping, or just snuggling up next to the fireplace with a good book, we would love to welcome you as our guest at the Inn on Lake Wissota.
