Webster house description

Large, modern custom-designed home on secluded lot with 250’ of private, wooded shoreline on Big Yellow Lake. The ultimate getaway for PRIVACY and LUXURY. Completely furnished. Large wooded lot with heavily wooded buffer zone on both sides of property. You won’t see or hear the neighbors unless you make the effort to visit them. Situated on a quiet road that is all but invisible from the house.

Yellow Lake is a large, peaceful 2300-acre lake fed by springs and the Yellow River. It is well-known as a GREAT fishing lake, with a large variety of fish from perch, sunnies & crappies, to walleyes, large & smallmouth bass, northern, muskies and sturgeon. Great lake for sailing and water sports. Two bar/restaurants with mooring on the lake. Plenty of restaurants, golf, and other activities within short driving distance.

Large kitchen, dining & living areas. Luxurious master bedroom has queen bed, large walk-in closet, and private master bathroom with double vanity, jacuzzi tub, and separate shower stall. A second bath with full tub & shower serves the guest bedroom (den with double sleeper sofa). A stairway leads to a large loft overlooking the cathedral-ceiling living areas, with a large seating area, a single bed and a double bed. Finished with lots of knotty cedar and oak and decorated with large professional photos of local wildlife.

You can expect to see bald eagles frequently, up close and personal, as well as the large Pileated woodpeckers. Smaller birds are also in abundance, and occasional visits from deer, wild turkeys, grouse, fox, & rabbits.

There is a guest cabin on the property with two bedrooms, toilet, shower, living room & kitchen. Available separately (VRBO #427429) or in combination with the main house. A screened gazebo overlooking the lake sits between the two.

A nesting pair of BALD EAGLES lived high in a white pine between the two buildings for twelve years. The nest went down in a storm in 2012, but the eagles still hang out here. As you relax on the large front deck, the eagles will come and go from their favorite tree between you and the lake, often bringing fish to eat while you watch. A family of red foxes makes their home in our woods. The adults are elusive, but the kits often wander through the yard where you can get a closeup view.

A scenic sloping path leads down the lake between majestic pine trees. (Accessible by golf cart if you have mobility problems).

Private dock, rowboat, canoe & 2 kayaks are included at no extra charge, or you can bring your own boat and tie it up at the dock. 20 ft. pontoon boat with 40hp motor ($450/wk) or 14' aluminum boat with 9.9hp motor ($150/wk) available for rent. There are several public landings, as near as a mile away.

No Smoking. Strictly no fireworks because they frighten the eagles and the red foxes that live here. No pets. We don't want the eagles or foxes to frighten fido or vice-versa.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: Your host is a wildlife photographer who speaks reasonably good English, French, Spanish, and some slightly rusty German. Currently working on a documentary film about bald eagles for public television.

                          Why the Owner Chose Webster:
                          We bought this property because of its unique private atmosphere and the active eagle nest in the middle of the yard. There is a magical quality about this property that seems like you are in your own little world.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This gorgeous home was custom-designed and built for a retired couple. It is the most tranquil vacation spot you can imagine, very private, and with eagle-watching any day of the year. Direct access to the largest and best fishing lake in the area.
