Dick & Dolly’s Cottage

1119 Gross Road, Woodruff, WI 54568

Greater Minocqua (consisting of the towns of Minocqua, Woodruff and Arbor Vitae) is one of the most sought-after vacation destinations in Wisconsin’s north woods.

The area has one of the largest concentrations of freshwater lakes and rivers in the world. When you add Wisconsin’s best supper clubs, fabulous fishing and friendly people to the mix, Minocqua is not to be missed for a fun and relaxing getaway with family and friends.

Dick & Dolly’s Cottage is located on the quiet and serene Hungry Lake, boasting a sandy bottom for swimming, cozy north woods comfort and proximity to an entire range of tourist attractions and diverse dining options.

The name Minocqua is derived from the Ojibwe word meaning “Good Woman.” Native peoples hunted and fished these lands for generations before French fur traders arrived. In the late 1800’s the area developed a lucrative logging industry supported by a railway line. 

At Dick & Dolly’s Cottage you will find art, books and resources as well as five, authentic antique maps from the 19th century that celebrate the heritage and preserve the history of those who lived on and preserved this pristine, lakefront land before us.
