Awesome vacation spot Family Friendly
Awesome vacation spot Family Friendly
This was our first expierence with renting. We all were very happy with the two cabins, Clean kitchen,well stocked. House was kid friendly,lots of running space,Disney movies and toys!! Our week was on the cool side,heat was available and used in evenings and mornings. Flat yard with a sandy beach.Fire pit with lots of wood provided! Fished off dock,used paddle boat to fish,and public boat dock very close. Location ideal.We did day trips to Duluth,Superior,Hayward and Bayfield. Renting was very easy,all questions were answered promptly. I would recommend for anyone with children or just wanting a quiet get away.

Owner response: We hope to have you back again. The guest house works out so well for 2 families and their children. It gives you 2 houses to utilize so when someone needs privacy or quiet time, they can do so. Glad the kids like the toys and Disney movies!
Excellent vacation for children and in-laws!!
Excellent vacation for children and in-laws!!
We have visited many VRBO rentals over the past 5 years and this was our favorite, by far! We vacationed with our three children, two grandparents, brother and young nephew. The kids abosultely loved the beach! The water was perfect, sand bottom, perfect depth for children. The land is beautiful, flat to the lake with trees surrounding that provide privacy. The guesthouse is a MUST if vacationing with other families. It provided us, each, our own space and the guesthouse has all the ammenities the large cabin has: kitchen, washer/dryer, bathroom, two large bedrooms, dining area, and TV/DVD. The main cabin is extremely comfortable with large bedrooms and a large living area that overlooks the lake with enough room for the four children to play during the rain (which there was very little of while we were there). We visited in August and there was no need to use fans while we were there. The breeze from the lake was more than enough to keep us comfortable (cooler summer than usual, however). We enjoyed using the paddleboat and rowboat, but brought our fishing boat with, which we keep at the dock. We caught a muskie, after a bit of a hunt, but landed many panfish. It was a perfect vacation! You will not find another cabin/beach as great as this, for this cost!

Owner response: Glad you had a great time. The guest house is really ideal when vacationing with extended family or friends. When we purchased the property many years ago, I did feel like we now owned a little piece of what Heaven must be like. My wife and I have stayed at many VRBO properties and do feel that what we have to offer is a tremendous value! Please visit again.
Perfect Family Vacation
Perfect Family Vacation
This was our very first family vacation with our 2 children ages 2 and 4. The sandy beach with the gradual slope was perfect for us. The kids spent most days digging in the sand and creating rivers. This allowed my husband and I some much needed quiet time. The paddleboat was a plus and we enjoyed a few trips to the middle of the lake in search of the eagle that was flying around. We loved the spacious yard where the kids could run around and we spent every night by the fire pit. The cabin was spacious and well laid out for our family. It has a big living room and large loft area for the kids to play. The kitchen was well stocked and the kids adored the breakfast bar. The size of the property allowed for privacy and was very quiet. We enjoyed a few dinners at the Kopper Kettle and saw the waterfalls at Patterson Park. Todd was very helpful in answering all of my questions in a timely manner. He was very easy to work with. We would certainly consider returning again next year.

Owner response: Thanks for the kind words. We hope to have you guys back. Thanks for leaving everything as you found it. If you guys need a weekend getaway, the Lake is awesome in September and October also!
A great week.
A great week.
First I will say that the description and reviews were very accurate and everything was just as we expected. We have three young kids, 7, 5, and 2. This was a perfect place for us. We try a different place every year and this is the most kid friendly place we have stayed. A large flat yard and sand beach. As mentioned the water level is very gradual making it perfect to let a 2 year old wander in and out all day without hovering right over her. We loved the vicinity to Duluth, Bayfield, Amnicon Falls, Pattison State Park, Lake St. Croix among others great sight seeing. The lake was super quiet (we were there over the 4th). The washer/ dryer was great. I was concerned about no air conditioning, but the evenings cool down so much it was unnecessary, even in the middle of July. As I mentioned we rent every year and found this cabin to be exceptionally clean. We didn't use the second cabin, but I could tell that it would work wonderfully for a larger group. I'm running out of space and I'm sure I missed things. I would highly recommend this place for a family. We had a great week. Thanks Todd and Kathy.

Owner response: Glad you had a great family vacation! It is a little piece of heaven. We have found the lake to be quiet even on major holidays and we work hard to keep everything clean and up to date. We hope you will visit us again!
We were actually very disappointed with the cleaniness of the cabin. We rent on VRBO all the time and have never been burned -- so we thought we would try another site -- sorry to say this was not up to our standards. Our main concerns were the cabin was not clean and when charged a cleaning fee feel we should not have to clean when we get there. Cobwebs all over the house, dirty frig, and uncomfortable beds

Owner response: I am really disturbed by this review. This is coming almost 4 months after these folks were guests. If there really was a problem, I do not know why they would not have contacted me immediately upon arrival or at least sometime between their stay and now. We really pride ourselves on our property and we really work hard to offer our guests a wonderful vacation and I make every effort to respond promptly to any question a potential guest may have or a question coming from a guest that is enjoying our property. I WOULD ASK THAT POTENTIAL GUESTS THAT ARE READING THIS REVIEW, PLEASE CONTINUE TO READ ALL OTHER REVIEWS THAT HAVE BEEN POSTED BY PREVIOUS GUESTS.. We will be adding a new dock and a new firepit in the Spring of 2013, and will continue to invest money in this property to keep it first class. My goal is for everyone that has the opportunity to stay at our property to rate it as 5 stars out of a possible 5. I cannot control the fishing or weather, but everything that we can control we do to make this a very memorable experience for all guests.

Owner response: Glad you had a great time! September and October are awesome times to enjoy the leaves turning colors and some awesome sunsets and sunrises over the Lake!
My wife and I and two daughters (ages 19 and 24) had a very fun and relaxing week at the lake house. The house was well stocked and very clean. Kitchen was well lighted, good counter space. Dining room table was good size for 4 people. Family room was very spacious, plush, and rustic. We all loved the beach and water. Several evenings we had a camp fire in the fire pit and it was awesome as the sunlight vanished and the stars came out. The charcoal grill that was provided was used often. We took several day-trips or partial day-trips during our week, which included Superior,WI, Amnicon State Park, Pattison State Park, and Bayfield, WI/Apostle Islands. What really amazed us about the property was how quiet and dark it was. Most of the time we hardly knew anyone else was around. Todd was very helpful during every part of the experience. It was a great time and we would love to go back

Owner response: We are glad you had a great vacation! It is important to Kathy and I that folks that rent our lake house enjoy themselves and we take it very seriously to try our very best to provide a property above their expecatations! Plenty to do in the surrounding area as you found out or you can just enjoy the privacy of our beach, acreage, and the Lake!
Great for family vacation

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. We have 2 small children (3 and 4 years) and the beach is indeed awesome! They LOVED it. The property is very pretty and we really appreciated the privacy and peace and quiet. The nearby state parks are really nice, and Duluth is a short drive away. Todd was very helpful in answering questions and providing advice on places to visit while we were there. I would recommend this property to a friend, and we would visit again.

Great Beach and Cabin
Great Beach and Cabin
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay with our grown children, their spouses and our grandchildren. We were six adults, a 2 yr old and two babies and had plenty of room renting the cabin and the guesthouse. We easily could have all fit in the main cabin but wanted a little extra space with the babies. The cabin was very clean and had a wonderful large family room with windows facing the lake. All are very well maintained, clean, and comfortable and close to each other for going back and forth. The beach is amazing. Beautiful sand and very very gradual elevation. Was perfect for our 2yr old. A row boat and paddle boat were available and the paddle boat got used every day. The lake is very quiet and the beach is very private. We felt like we had the lake to ourselves. Tried a little bit of fishing without much success but our main goal was to hang out on the beach and play - which is exactly what we did. We did get a tip on where to catch some crappies but it was just too hard to tear ourselves away from the beach to give it a try. The sunsets were also amazing. Nothing like watching a beautiful sunset sitting in a paddle boat with a glass of wine - pure heaven. We highly recommend this property for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful Wisconsin outdoors - and plenty of room inside in case the rain decides to show up. Todd is so easy and accomodating and promptly answers all your questions. Everything other than our beach towels was provided making the stay that much more easy. We'll definitely be looking into another stay here in the future.

Owner response: Glad you all had a great time! Kathy and I work hard to keep the property clean. The guest house works just great to allow for families that want to vacation together and yet gives everyone their own house and privacy and space when needed. The privacy of the Lake is indeed awesome and sunsets and sunrises are second to none. With our busy schedule it is tough for us to enjoy the property as much as we would like, and love to have people like yourselves enjoy it and treat it with care and respect like you did. We hope to have you s guests again! Todd
great place to relax

My wife and kids and I all spent a week and really enjoyed out stay . We have stayed at many private rentals as we prefer them from resorts and found this place to be everything we have been looking for for a relaxing stay they still have a nice beach for the kids to play on. Any questions or concerns I had the owner Todd promptly got back to me and made us feel at home. We highly recommend this place to stay if you are looking for a very quiet lake to vacation on!

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Kathy and I bought this property in 1997 and have had many years and fantastic memories watching the kids grow up and enjoy the beach, the lake, and nearby hunting and fishing spots. We enjoy the privacy of our property and the quietness of the Lake. We deal with the public all day long and I have never really been able to RELAX on busy lakes that have constant boat and jet ski traffic. On the 4th of July weekend, it is common to see only a handful of boats on the lake and those that are out there are fishing. The beach is wonderful and the gradual slope into the lake is great for young kids. Our kids are growing up and it is hard to coordinate everyone's schedules to allow us much time 'up at the Lake', so we have decided to allow others to enjoy this great property and make their own 'getaway' memories.
Why the Owner Chose Lyman Lake:
If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of some lakes with lots of boat traffic and jet skis buzzing by your dock, you will not enjoy this property. We bought this property because it is a beautiful, quiet, private house and guest house on a nice 400+ acre lake in Northwest Wisconsin where the speed of life moves a whole lot slower than other parts of the world. We have good fishing for walleye and musky on Lyman and many other lakes and streams nearby. Although the lake is peaceful, we do like the fact that we are a short distance from Duluth , Superior, Hayward, Ashland, Lake Superior, and the Apostle Islands. A number of great restaurants are also a short drive away. This is a GREAT spot for a Romantic getaway or for a family getaway. We were blessed to watch our 4 children grow up on this lake and we experienced countless memories. We have decided it is time to allow others to make their own memories.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lake living is really where it is at! When I am in need of recharging my batteries, all I need to do is head 'up to the Lake' and with a sunset and glass of wine or beer,or a cup of coffee in the morning watching the sunrise , I immediately start recharging the batteries!
