Hintz’s North Star Lodge

An authentic and timeless resort

For more than 120 years, people have been escaping to a special resort on the shore of Star Lake. Envisioned as a retreat for railroad and lumber company officials and guests, the lodge was carefully constructed with Northwoods timber in 1894-95. The lodge has changed owners over the years, but the spirit of this beautiful retreat has never wavered. It’s a place where people can relax and enjoy the same spectacular views, outdoor beauty and fresh air that enchanted visitors a century ago, all while making new memories today.

Guests may rent a new lakeside villa, cabin, apartment or even rooms within in the historic lodge. The property includes an award-winning restaurant and bar in the main lodge. Enjoy relaxing and delicious dining in the Waldheim Room.


The property features eight cottages, five lakeside villas and three apartments. Each unit has a large screened-in porch. All are equipped with thermostat-controlled heat. All cottages have showers or shower-tub combos and full kitchens with microwaves. Villas have gas or wood fireplaces. Located on a 1,200-acre lake surrounded by the 220,000-acre Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest.
