The Braywood was built in 1949 by Billy Bray and Frances woods. They were a famous dancing couple who gained their notoriety by playing for almost every major hotel and night club in show business. They performed with many names such as Lawrence Welk, Gab Callaway, Guy Lambardo, Bob Crosby and many others. While performing at the Jack-O-Lantern billy Bray noticed that none of the sleeping rooms had private baths. It was then that Mr. Bray decided to build a modern
motel on the chain of twenty-eight lakes which is the largest inland chain of lakes in the world. When finished they were the first motel in Northern Wisconsin to have private baths and the only motel to have lake front property.
The Bray and Wood duo operated the motel until 1970 when they where forced to sell due to their health.
