Spooner chalet description

We built our 'Chalet' as a guest house for family. It has a full kitchen with all the dishes and pots and pans. We also furnish bed linens and bath towels, but please bring your own beach towels. It is completely separate from our main house with it's own driveway and yard. It is not directly on the beach, but it is only about a 2 minute walk to the dock on Big Mckenzie Lake. There are mostly mature trees around it and it is very quiet at night. We are on the East side of the lake, so we most often have beatiful sunsets. Rental includes all of the free firewood you want to burn in either the fire ring in the backyard or the fire pit by the water. No pets, please. There are aluminum boats available for rent and sometimes a pontoon can be rented.

We have been inspected and are licensed by the State of Wisconsin, Department of Health Services.

The lake covers about 1300 acres and is known as an excellent lake for fishing, boating and swimming. Our beach area is kid friendly with a sand bottom that extends out more than 100 feet and the water is still less than 3 feet deep. Our dock extends further out and there is space for you to tie up a boat.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: I am a retired High School School Counselor. I now spend my summers at my lake home on Big McKenzie Lake. The lake covers about 1200 acres and is good for fishing or water skiing or just relaxing. There are 2 Community theater groups in the area, plus a venue for outdoor concerts, so we attend many of these events. Spooner has a movie theater, a canoe museum, a railroad museum, a tourist train ride, and interesting shops and stores.

                  Why the Owner Chose Spooner:
                  We chose this area because the lake is excellent, yet only about 125 miles from Minneapolis and about 60 miles from Duluth. This makes a easy drive if we want to go a larger city.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  We like to sleep with the windows open so that we can listen to the Loon calls on the lake at night. There are also a couple of Bald Eagle nests on the lake so we see eagles often. Deer usually wander through our yard every night.
