Does anyone remember a resort near Hazelhurst called Keith's Key of the North? Would anyone know the location or former location?
Thank you.

Hi,
I have an old Chicago Northwestern Railroad map from the 1920s that lists a Keith's Cliff resort on Lower Kaubashine Lake run by Mrs. Lulu Keith. Hope this helps.
Regards,
Bill

Have an envelope from Keith's Key o' the North from June 1958. Was on Lake Kaubachien, Hazelhurst, Wiconsin. Rates were $85 each for living room, bedroom, double bed and private bath, three meals a day, served in your cottage if you wished (at no additional charge), use of a rowboat and a sailboat at no charge. Water skiing was $4. Our bill for the week was $181.16. Had three beverages at $.70 each, gas $1.00 and stamps $.06. What a wonderful trip! There is no specific address listed on the lake.

Thank you for the reply....I didn't realize anyone HAD replied until now. I'm so happy to know that it existed! I was up there, and drove around upper and lower Lake Kaubashine and couldn't find anyone who remembered it at all!

This is now called Black's Cliff Resort and is on Lower Kaubashine Lake in Hazelhurst, Wi.

The Blacks (Maynard) purchased the place from the owners of Keith's Key. The Blacks' granddaughter (Jenny Gibson) and her husband now manage it.

You can check out their web site and blog if you want to see pictures and get a sense for the place now.
