Manitowish Waters cottage description

Had enough of the hustle and bustle of your daily life? Get away to relax and enjoy the quiet unspoiled beauty of the North Woods.

This rustic lakeside retreat (named Done Achin') is perfect for fishing, walks in the woods, writing, and reading. The cottage has no immediate neighbors (although there are 40 homes around the lake) and is located on a point of land surrounded by trees. Go for a stroll around the lake (five miles), for a sunset boat ride, or simply take your book to the dock and watch for bald eagles.

Lake Pardee is a small private lake that is stocked with fish each year. The clear cool water is perfect for swimming, boating and fishing. The pristine surroundings are home to many species of wildlife including bass, walleye, pike, otters, deer, chipmunks, beavers and many different kinds of birds.

Our rotary dial telephone ensures the opportunity to take a break from voice mail. Families welcome! Non-smokers only please. We're sorry, we can't allow pets.

                      About: This cottage has been in our family for more than 50 years. My Grandmother bought it originally, and my father and his brother added on the living/dining room and kitchen as well as the screen porch.

                      Why Manitowish Waters:
                      This unspoiled area of Wisconsin represents what the northwoods used to be. The wildlife is abundant and the lake water clear and stocked with fish. We've never found a more peaceful and beautiful place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The loons build their nests on the island in the lake each year. You can sit on the screened in porch and watch the lake, the birds, and whatever deer, fox, chipmunks or other small wildlife happens by.
