Minocqua house description
Shoreview is on a quiet bay on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Shishebogama, just 7 miles west of charming Minocqua Wisconsin.
Guests love the beautiful tile floors, wood ceilings, stainless steel appliances, hickory cabinets and abundant windows in the Lakehouse. We have a huge screened porch with comfortable seating, table and chairs for outside dining and a large wood deck overlooking the lake.
Each of the 3 levels in the lakehouse offer beautiful lake views! The main level has a living and dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. The upper level has 2 huge bedrooms, each with a queen bed and daybed and a shared bathroom. The lower level has a recreation room, bedroom and bathroom!
Summertime on Lake Shish is wonderful! We have 3 docks, a swimming raft and a private boat launch for your fishing or ski boat. We also provide a rowboat, 2 kayaks and a small canoe for those wanting a little more exercise! A state-owned island, with hiking trails, can be seen from the lakehouse! You are sure to see some of the Northwoods wildlife. These include bald eagles, loons, beaver, blue herons and much more.
Shoreview is great in the fall and winter, too! The beautiful colors of autumn reflect in our serene lake! A brisk hike or bike ride on the Minocqua's Bearskin trail is a memorable experience. We are on a snowmobile trail and just minutes from Winter Park, with cross country skiing at it's best! Or just clamp on snowshoes and cross a frozen Lake Shish!
Summer rentals run from Saturday to Saturday and we have loyal guests returning each year. Occasionally we have an opening but the best chance of securing a week during the summer is the first part of June and last week of August.

Beyond beautiful! Everything you need in one spot. Beautiful updated, fully stocked home with a beautiful view. We had direct access to snowmobile trails and what a wonderful view of the lake! Was wonderful watching the Eagles come down on the lake for scraps one of the neighbors had left them. I just can't say enough how spectacular it was, beyond what the description shows. The grounds keeper Dave did anything he could to make this accommodating for our trucks and trailers and was so pleasant to talk to. The owners worked with us right up to the last minute to make our vacation wonderful!

Owner response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your WINTER stay at the lake house!! Being in the Northwoods with fresh snow on the ground and a bright blue sky is an exhilarating experience! And, what a winter this has been on Lake Shish! Thanks for the great feedback and we hope you return in the future!!
We stayed in this home place over Thanksgiving this year and had a wonderful time. The owners are very nice people and great to work with. The house is very accommodating, easy to access, and within a short drive to Minoqua. The lake is one of the premier lakes in the Minoqua area. The surrounding area is beautiful. I would highly recommend this vacation property. Thank you so much for a wonderul time.

Owner response: We are so glad that you had a pleasant Thanksgiving while staying at our lake home! We know that you were spending precious time with your family and are pleased that our home provided a comfortable setting for you. Lake Shish is indeed a beautiful lake in the Northwoods. And, thank YOU for your wonderful communication!!
Wonderful, roomy, comfortable home on a spectacular lake

Hi Kathy, We are back in California after a long day of travel yesterday from Northern Wisconsin, exhausted but happy. I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your Lake House on Lake Shishebogama. It worked very well for our family. We felt so blessed to have found such a comfortable, beautiful home at a perfect location near our family's compound on Marion Lake. You did a great job of designing the Lake House and it is so well maintained. It's the nicest of all the homes I've rented for family vacations over the years in CA and Nevada. We would recommend it to anyone, including those, like us, with a young child. Having the pack and play and a booster seat helped us so much. We hope to return to your home in the future when we make our way, once more, up North.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your review, Lois! So glad that your family enjoyed your week's stay while in the area for a wedding. Northern Wisconsin is beautiful every season, especially in the autumn. We hope you were able to see the loons and bald eagles that make Lake Shishebogama so special! Please visit us again!

Lake Shish-Shoreview Lake House
Wow, JR, you must have been looking for a different experience than was advertised and pictured in the Shoreview Lake House! Our family has vacationed on this property even before the beautiful lake house was constructed. The "whole story" is that this Lake Shishkabagama House is the best rental property we have ever stayed in. We want a place that has access to a boat ramp in order to put our boat into the water. How convenient that the ramp is right on the property. Yes, the highway is nearby, but that makes the trip to the lake just a little bit shorter. And our kids are so anxious to get there each year that even an extra 10 minute ride down a long unpaved road would seem unbearable. When I sit on the gorgeous screened-in porch I hear the frogs and loons and sometimes the screech of an eagle as it catches its meal right in front of the house. Yes there are neighbors, but I didn't expect a deserted lake front. My guess is the owners do not show photos of the neighboring properties because they are not trying to rent them. All I know is we have spent many wonderful family vacations at this property and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

We thought this lakehouse was the best we have ever stayed at! It has everything you could possibly need and more! The house is just wonderful and well thought out for guests that may come with more than just their family! As for the scenic views, you can't beat them! My family loved all the docks, the kayak, and the swim out raft! We saw eagles, loons, herons, ducks, and more! What a great Northwoods experience. We had a wonderful week and can't wait until next year! The kids keep talking about the lake and the cool island we took the boat too! Such a great experience! Thanks so much for opening up your home to our family!

The Whole Story
The Whole Story
I am providing the Whole Story. The size, comfort level, quality, and furnishing were very suitable for our family of 6 and would easily accommodate a group of 10. The rental was clean and well maintained, and any small issues were addressed by a nearby caretaker. Everything was is good working order including the gas grill and the laundry equipment. The owner was helpful and provided useful information prior to arrival. I would recommend this property with the following understandings: There are close neighbors not depicted in the photographs and the boat ramp used 3 or 4 times during our stay abuts the property. It is not very quiet as the two lane Highway 70 traffic can be heard night and day. It was not the quiet secluded setting I was hoping for and expecting based on the photographs. The available kayaks, canoe and john boat were a nice bonus. I would definitely recommend the very convenient and nicely operational pontoon boat, which was a bargain considering the conveninence of docking behind the rental home. The lake is a good fishing lake for small mouth and large mouth bass. We caught fish every time we ventured out in the morning or evening. The bass were attracted to spinner baits, worms and bottom jigging with minnows. We caught also reeled in a couple of northern pike, one perch, and a few crappie. This is not a Walleye lake. The Big Bear Bar has great pizza, and Chef Rene's on the lake provided a quality meal at a reasonable price. With the above understandings in hand, you should enjoy your stay in the Minocqua area.

Owner response: We appreciate receiving reviews and we depend on reviews ourselves when renting other properties through VRBO. We are so accustomed to our guests being thrilled with their experience at our lake house that this review is surprising, but truthful. If you are looking for a secluded deep-woods experience, this is probably not the home for you. We do have quiet neighbors on each side of our home but we have 320 feet of shoreline with 3 docks and a swim raft. Our home is situated so that your views are what you see in the pictures, true northwoods splendor! Our home is on Shoreview Drive which loops off of Highway 70, very easy drive from Minocqua. Although you cannot see the highway you can hear occasional traffic, We never feel that it diminishes the sounds of loons, frogs, eagles diving and lapping waves from beautiful Lake Shish. Our private boat launch makes it very easy if you are bringing your own boat (although we do have a rowboat, kayaks, and canoe.) But, in an attempt to be good neighbors, we have allowed neighbors to use the boat launch occasionally, as the public launch is a little difficult and distant. Memorial week probably did bring more usage than usual. We have a few pine trees, but guests love our setting on a bay with unobstructed lake and sunset views. So, if you are looking for a secluded deep-woods experience, keep looking. But, if you are interested in a modern and spacious lake house with a great screened porch, lots of sunshine, northwoods wildlife on a beautiful and quiet lake with fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, then you found the perfect vacation spot!

Paul and Kathy, We really enjoyed our stay at your lake house. It was perfect for us. I was amazed on how homey it was, very comfortable, had everything we needed, and more. The skiing was fantastic, perfect cold weather and perfect snow. After long days of skiing, it was so nice to come back to your warm house where we played games, had hot chocolate, and enjoyed the ample space. We played family games upstairs around the big dining table, and the kids made plenty of use of the play room downstairs, playing Wii games and dancing. We enjoyed the views of the lake out the back windows. The beds were very cozy, everything so clean. The back porch area really sparked our interest for summer and fall, I bet it is great to sit out there and watch the sun set over the lake. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us, we thoroughly enjoyed it! Signed, Jim (dad), Margaret (mom), Kristen (14), and Jenna (10) and Jeff (dad), Rita (mom), Dominic (14), and Vincent (11). The kids are cousins. It is so nice to have the cousins share such special childhood moments, moments and memories that will last a lifetime. Your lake house added to our special moment this year. We all voted this house the best vacation house we have stayed in. That is saying a lot, because we travel as a group throughout the midwest, and have stayed in many houses. Happy New Year!

Beyond our expectations!
Beyond our expectations!
Just got back from a week spent on BEAUTIFUL Lake Shish! The pictures on-line don't quite capture the beauty of the home and the view. The house is perched on the edge of the lake offering an incredible panaramic view of the lake, island and all the fall splendor! There was plenty of space for our family of four couples. I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone - large or small group! The two upper level bedrooms are extremely spacious. The kitchen is completely stocked with all of the conveniences of home. If you are not sure about vacationing during the off season, I suggest that you rethink that thought! Each morning we enjoyed coffee while watching the sun light up the brilliant fall trees. The colors are amazing! There is even a faux fireplace on the lower level to help take the chill off after a walk or fishing on those crisp days! Early in the morning the waters were so calm that the blue sky and clouds were perfectly mirrored on the lake surface. There are so many windows in the home to enjoy the views while we were inside one drizzly day...curled up on the couch enjoying books from their collection. There are plenty of roads to explore if you enjoy walking - very peaceful and beautiful! There is a private boat landing right next to the home and a large pier to tie your boat over night. The home is perfectly maintained - 4 years old and still has that brand new feel! There are plenty of place near by for shopping and dining - Minoqua is only 7 miles away! We plan on returning next fall!...don't book our week!

Quoted from e-mail correspondence: I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time at your Lakehouse. The house was beautiful and very peaceful. I can't imagine what a gorgeous view you must have in the summer time. In the fall I bet the changing of the leaves is breathtaking. We have been going to the Minocqua/Presque Isle area now for 9 nines and everyone agreed this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Thanks again for opening your home to us.

Our group consisted of 3 couples. We had a wonderful time at this beautiful lake house. It's very functional and well maintained, and the central air is a definite plus on those hot, muggy days :-) Lake Shishebogama is a great fishing lake!

About the owner: Hello, We love to take vacations!! And we understand how important it is to spend your precious time and money in a comfortable and affordable home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Minocqua:
Our family has vacationed in the Northwoods of Minocqua since our children were small. Our most memorable moments have been hiking, biking, boating, star-gazing, card-playing, etc. etc. with our children, and their aunts, uncles and cousins on a lake near Minocqua. We purchased 3 rustic cottages in 1990, replacing 2 of them in 2007 with our wonderful lake house.....check the photos! Now we our grandchildren are enjoying beautiful Lake Shish with us!
