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.

ReviewsWrite a review
My family had a wonderful vacation in the Eagle House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jim made us feel right at home and was kind enough to provide me with a up-close view of the bald eagles on the lake. We really enjoyed fishing and boating and eagle viewing, as well as visiting nearby attractions. I highly recommend staying here!

Family vacation on Yellow Lake
Family vacation on Yellow Lake
We had an excellent time staying in this lovely home. The amenities were awesome: a well equipped kitchen, a huge laundry room, nice full bathrooms with new towels, central air, a grill on the deck and a golf cart to get down to the lake(if needed). This home is in a great location with a grocery store just minutes away. Jim, the owner was very helpful and made every effort to make our trip enjoyable. We rented the fishing boat and the pontoon boat during our stay. Renting both boats was worth the extra fee and made for lots of fun on the water. The fishing was great as well! We caught several Northern, Walleye, Bass and saw a Sturgeon jump. The eagles are active and fun to watch. We also saw several loons, deer and some wild turkeys. I would recommend this home to families, young couples, and retirees.

Amazing Family Reunion
Amazing Family Reunion
We rented both the main house and the cabin for our 9~member family reunion week. Both places had well stocked kitchens, were clean and tidy, and the screened-in porch/pavillion was a perfect late-night retreat for those of us that were not ready to go to bed (and the bugs did not 'bug' us at all!). We utilized the two kayaks everymorning to get out on the lake and watch the eagles teaching their young how to 'fish'. The paddleboat and canoe were alos utilized for the older, less adventurous members of our party. We also appreciated the use of the golf cart to get up and down the hillside! The owner went above and beyond by responding to our needs in a very timely manner. The rental property is within 3 miles to nearby shopping, banking and coffee shop (free wifi) in Webster, and within 15 min drive to nearby Siren (where we went to see a rainy-day movie).

My family stayed here for five days and enjoyed a wonderful time. Swimming, fishing, and boating were all very nice. The house is very well equipped and comfortable. We also enjoyed the eagles that frequent the area. I would highly recommend this as a destination.

This house is perfect! Extremely clean and comfortable. The owner goes out of his way to make sure all the comforts of home are included in the house. My kids loved the kayaks and the paddleboat all included at no charge. The property is in a very quiet location, it is impossible not to relax here. I've been coming to this lake for over 15 years and this location was none like I've experienced before. It put a great new twist on an old tradition. My family loved it and we would stay here again, although I told Jim, the owner, I'd rather not share my glowing review, I'd love to keep this house to myself. Thanks Jim, had a great time!

We stayed here 6/29/12 - 7/6/12. We really enjoyed our stay. We had only 3 people, but the house would have comfortably handled several more people. The temperature averaged in the high 90's, but the central air allowed us to keep cool.The house is very nice, the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with ample tools and pans. The house has lots of closets to store your things out of the way. I enjoyed having my morning coffee out on the spacious deck. The owner, Jim, is very nice and even cut back some of the trees so I had a better view of the dock and lake. One night while we were away, a wind storm kicked up, our boat was docked with the bow facing the shore. Our boat would have been swamped, but Jim and Al, a guest staying in the cabin next door turned our boat around during the storm and saved us a lot of grief. If we vacation in the Webster area again, I hope this house is available, we would love to stay here again.
