Property description

The Loons Lodge is part of a small 'quaint resort' called Lake Rest Cabins that offers 3 well furnished lodging overlooking beautiful Little Spider Lake in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin. We are located in the Northern Highlands State Forest minutes north of Minocqua Wisconsin.
The Loon's Lodge has both the charm and appeal of the old resort cabins with the modern amenities that make your stay very peaceful. Satellite TV-Washer and Dryer makes your stay one of great memories. WI-FI is included along with a portable 11000 BTU Air Conditioner (summer only of course) makes this a fantastic place to enjoy.
The Loons Lodge was the first cabin built on Little Spider Lake in 1919. Since then it has undergone several updates and now features an eclectic mix of historic and modern interiors and furnishings. The original fieldstone fireplace and original hard-wood flooring in the living room reflect the historic charm, while the enclosed back porch serves as a game room, featuring a foosball table, and a full-size futon. With a king and a full size bed in one bedroom and a queen size bed in the other, this spacious cottage can accommodate 6 to 8 people comfortably. Additionally, the cabin features a full kitchen, large dining room, two full bathrooms,one of which has been totally remodelded in February of 2013, a laundry area in the basement, and a private deck with a fantastic view overlooking the lake. We offer amenities such as coffee- A large Weber charcoal grill -some spices and a fully furnished kitchen to make you stay as relaxing as possible.


Little Spider Lake is a 236 acre lake that is home to musky, northern, walleye, perch, bass, and blue gill. There is an abundance of eagles, loons, a variety of ducks and blue heron and you may even see an occasional black bear, coyote, wolf, or fox. The lake is great for all types of water sports such as fishing, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boating.

The beauty of the north woods and breath-taking view of Little Spider Lake make Lake Rest Cabins the perfect destination for relaxation, while the area offers recreational activities and diverse attractions for the entire family. Lake Rest Cabins is the perfect vacation setting for you, your family, and friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Pictured above is a group enjoying the fire ring adjacent to the cabin. We enjoy entertaining our guests!

Why the Owner Chose Arbor Vitae:
We purchased this property in 2003 along with another cottage called Baron's Bungalow and turned the property into a small resort called Lake Rest Cabins. The property was purchased from my father, Jim Steiner, and previously was called Jim and Fran's cottages. We continue to make changes to the cabins such as: laminate flooring in the kitchen/new tile flooring in both bathrooms, AC in living room, WI-FI, Blue Ray DVD, an Ipod docking station!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Loons Lodge is truly a 'North Woods' cabin and still has the old charm of a rustic cabin but also has been updated with all of the amenities that you can enjoy today. We consider ourselves 'care takers' of this secluded resort area and want to share it with those looking for a sense of peace and quiet.
