Saint Germain is a mid sized town for the Northwoods. It has a grocery store, a fair amount of spots to dine out or grab a drink, an ice cream shop, a hardware store, etc. Basically, it has all the essentials. There are some nice lakes located not too far from town. One of the best features of St. Germain is its location. It is 15 minutes from Eagle River and 15-25 minutes from Minocqua (depending on where you are going in the Minocqua/Woodroof/Hazelhurt area). The central location opens up a lot of options when it comes to activities, dining, drinking, and just stuff to do in general.

retains a small town mom and pop feel.

Being popular, it is also the busiest chain around. The town is considered a tourist hot spot and many summer weekends you will feel like you're back in the city with all the people...well, you will if you're coming from the Lac Du Flambeau area at least!
