Property description

Vilas County,Wisconsin is the heart of the most outstanding vacation area in the upper Midwest. Our natural resources; over 1,300 lakes, 73 rivers and streams, and 1.5 million acres of forest lands makes Vilas County a top vacationland.

Come and enjoy our new home on Pickerel Lake, located near Eagle River in Vilas County, Wisconsin. Our house is a 4400 square foot vacation home with a great room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, two huge extra rooms (play area for children and a recreational area, both can be used for additional sleeping areas), and a two car garage.

It has a balcony off the third floor master-bedroom, a screened in porch on the second floor, and a stone patio off the Great room.

The home is located on a point, surrounded by the 300 acre lake, providing ultimate privacy. This is the scenic Northwoods at its best: excellent for fishing, and you can listen to the call of the loons and the howl of the wolves.
