Minocqua cottage description

Pull your car into the garage to unload and park, keeping your car clean. In your lower level rental, the water view is up close and personal. Every room has loads of natural light. With 1100 square feet of living and 12 feet of patio doors, the view of the lake is beautiful. We want you here and want you to feel comfortable and relaxed. Your walk to the water is just steps and very gradual. In the evening make a fire outside or let us build one for you. I have one customer that I have the fire blazing when they pull in, this helps set the mood of relaxation right away. Listen to the local loons or resident bald eagles. In 2014 the Loons and Eagles both fledged 2 chicks, it was awesome. The impressive Eagles nest can be seen at the waters edge. Photo opportunities are endless by boat with river otters, musk rats, and blue heron. Don't forget, keep your boat on the dock and try to catch a Musky on this class A Musky Lake. Catch bass, northern and pan fish right off the dock. If you came to fish we are not the only lake. Take a swim by moon light and experience what it is to let go and relax, there is nothing like it. The dock has a built in bench or bring out the lawn chairs for more comfort while taking in the sun and lake view. Call me and let me know what additional information you may need. You will be our only guests we can provide as much or as little support as you would like. Our goal is that you are comfortable and do what you enjoy, it is your vacation. We do have furry family members, please ask if you are concerned at all.

                  The UPNORTH area offers travelers a chance to relax. We are surrounded by water that heals and fills the soul. Free Water Ski Shows good seating at the show or arrive by boat. The Zoo is also a must see and well worth stopping by, not an ordinary zoo. Our area has horse back riding, go carting, and plenty of fudge shops and ice cream. We love the local Brewery, Thirsty Whale, and Boat House Establishments. Antiques, craft fairs and festivals all year round offer some crazy times. Torpy park is the center of the 4th of July with that small town feel, with people lounging on the grass, watching kids play, music and fireworks of course. We are a small community so it is far from being to commercialized. Call or email me with your idea of a good time and I will put together a list of activities for you.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Ray is from Wausau Wisconsin and has been a Master Baker and can provide cooking and baking tips. Nancy is from Stevens Point Wisconsin and works as a Paraprofessional. Our kids loved living on the lake, and we loved that our children were safe. We hope to hear from you soon.

                  Why the Owner Chose Minocqua:
                  Our historic vacation community and has hosted movie stars, gangsters and Presidents. Living on the lake and having community ammenites close at hand is certainly the best of both worlds. We love the area and have been coming here for 40 plus years with our families. This is a laid back community with no worry, people are friendly and you certainly feel safe.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  With the owners in residence you can have the security and attention you deserve. You will be our only guests. You will not be sharing the dock, fire ring and grounds with other guests. We certainly can provide you with concierge service, just a fancy word for if you need to know something we'll help you out. If you would like us to stock your rental, we will grocery shop for you. We have been known to have a campfire blazing for our late arriving guests. If you want privacy, we get it and privacy is what you'll get. Outdoor bedding is provided should you need to nap in the over sized hammock. On the lake yet minutes from town is the best feature should you need to make a run for supplies. Movie, dinner, sunset all from your unit or in town. Great bike trails, festivals, and golf.
