There's just something about the Northwoods.

Our Story

For over 40 years, the Best family has been operating Idle Hours Resort. It has been the choice for friends and family to gather and enjoy the beautiful Northwoods of Northern Wisconsin. Every season brings a different experience of fun, recreation and relaxation. From waterskiing, fishing, swimming, boating and snowmobiling, to craft fairs, nature walks, shopping and dining, there is something for everyone in St. Germain and at Idle Hours Resort.
