Fantastic stay at Camp Edna
Fantastic stay at Camp Edna
We had a fantastic stay at Camp Edna. The house has everything you need to be comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with pro-grade appliances and utensils, and every room is immersively themed as unmistakably Northwoods. We made fabulous dinners most nights, but we did make it to Stillwaters for their fish fry, which was a lot of fun. Boat rides, fishing, swimming, heading into nearby towns and Minocqua for a day made our vacation fly by. About the lake: Star Lake is stunningly beautiful and pristine, and since it’s on something like 90% state-owned land, the majority of the lake is lined thickly with towering pines, which really highlights its remoteness. We found that the “vibe” of the lake strikes that delicate balance of seclusion, but with just enough life on the lake to bring about that festive feeling of being on vacation. If you like to fish, you’ll find the lake very unique, with exceptionally dramatic structure; 2 feet one second, 60 feet the next, making for very dynamic fishing. A legendary, published Muskie guide lives across the street from Camp Edna, so that tells you something about what’s in this lake. It is highly recommended that you hire caretaker and fishing guide JJ to take you out on the front-end of your stay to get a lay of the lake. He’s very fun and accommodating as well as being skilled, and makes a great fishing buddy. JJ and Mark (the owner) were accessible and you could tell they really cared to make sure we were having a great time. And we did! We had our dog with us and he loved the experience as well. We will definitely come back. Great experience for our family!

Owner response: Thank you for your kind review! I am glad to hear that you share the same love for Camp Edna as we do! We look forward to your return in April and July!
If you plan to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city, this is the place! It is in the woods and secluded! Our group of 8 people spent a wonderful time in this beautiful cabin! From the moment we stepped in, all of us fell in love with Camp Edna! Every detail is thought through which makes this house a special place to be. The cabin can accommodate 8 people easily. The kitchen is fully-equipped with quality dishes and appliances. Each room is adorned beautifully, and the beds are really comfortable! We were impressed with the porch - you step in and find yourself in a winter wonderland because you are surrounded by the trees and snow, but it is warm and cozy because you are inside. Camp Edna offers a private deck which is great for fishing in the summer. Mark, the owner, is a wonderful person - helpful and easygoing, and his motto is "Relax and enjoy your stay." We had a magical vacation and plan to visit Camp Edna in the summer to sit on the porch and contemplate the nature around. Thank you, Mark, for letting us stay at your amazing house.

My family and friends spent a week in this magical place. The cottage is exceptionally beautiful, it offers state of the art amenitie and the most comfortable, great quality bedding. The screened porch, in addition to the living room one, has a fire place that keeps you warm in the evening while enjoying the breathtaking view of the Star Lake. This place is quiet and private and offers the best of worlds- modern touch with the privacy and beauty of the wilderness.Also, the owners allow pets on the screened porch which is great! I would definitelly book Camp Edna for Summer vacation again! One disadvantage (that would probably be essential to families with kids) is that there is no direct access to the beech for swimming. Other than that, Camp Edna is one of the best wilderness destinations we have been to.

Owner response: Thank you Anna for you review! Camp Edna is very special North Woods property on a pristine lake! I do agree with you about the lack of beach in front of the property, but Star Lake has many sandbars that can be accessed by the pontoon boat that we rent out with the house or other boats. The lake is 92% state owned so it is practically private. It is so much fun to anchor on one of these sandbars and enjoy the crystal clear waters! Our guests find this something very special and not found on many lakes in the North Woods! I am so happy to hear you had such a great time and experience at Camp Edna and I look forward to having you and your friends back in the very near future! If you have any photos to share, I would very much appreciate having a copy of them to share with others! P.S. The week you had this year is available next year! Hope to see you back then! Happy Holidays and best wishes for a very healthy and happy New Year! Mark
The very best there is in the North Woods! A total wow!
The very best there is in the North Woods! A total wow!
A complete wow! The minute we walked in we were in awe! Every last detail in decorating, comfort and location. Total privacy on a gorgeous piece of property. The furnishings were fantastic. The bedrooms were spacious and beds to die for. The screen porch is unbelievable. Lake views were incredible with the sunrise and steam rising over the lake. My morning coffee never tasted so good. The camp table in the porch was the perfect place for our family to dine. The kitchen had everything the most discerning cook could ever want. The fire pit was large and wood was provided. Perfect for the cool evenings we had. We brought our own boat and the dock was huge. The seating area was perfect .We fed the ducks every morning. I would recommend this property to anyone that wants to experience a north woods dream! Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven. We are honored to be your guests and look forward to many more years of returning to Camp Edna! Job well done!
