Arbor Vitae bungalow description

Located in the Northern Highland State Forest, you will find 70' White Pine trees in the yard upon your arrival to our 10 acre resort.
Enjoy a spectacular view of sunsets on your private deck (or even from your bedroom) , or on your private lakeside deck if you choose - on quiet Little Spider Lake. Often overlooked and under fished, you may encounter less than 10 boats a day during a typical stay. You can have quiet solitude or enjoy shopping within 10 minutes of the cabin. A fire pit is located within 50 feet of the cabin for an awesome view of the evening sky. You are just steps away from fishing for Musky, Large mouth bass, Northern Pike, Walleye, Perch, and Crappy as the native species to our lake. We have included life jackets and even minnow buckets for you.
You have your own private dock along with being minutes away from golfing(5 minutes)- biking (10 minutes)- hiking - casino (15 minutes) or entertainment in the Wisconsin northwoods. We provide firewood for your evening fires- jsut steps from the cabin.
Linens-towels- and most toiletries are provided. We also provide coffee- dishes and a variety of spices for your cooking needs. Books are provided for those quiet times you want to sit back and read.
Enjoy the outdoors with the sights and the call of loons in the mornining- eagles-blue herons- fox- and deer are common visitors to your stay as well.
We have a large master bedroom with a King size bed, a sitting area, along with a french door with a spectacular view of the lake. A 2 person jacuzzi tub and shower are included in the bathroom. Two satellite flat screen tv's are located in the living and bed rooms. The master bedroom includes an air conditioner or snuggle up to a Lopi gas stove fireplace for those cool evenings.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Linda and Ken Korsch, proprietors- We are off sight owners and we spend our weekends making things happen at the resort. We also enjoy all the things that make the northwoods enjoyable for the visitors. The cleaning is meticulous! You can enjoy a morning of local golfing at Trout Lake and then an afternoon ride around the lake followed by an evening around the campfire- all stress free!

                      Why the Owner Chose Arbor Vitae:
                      The beauty and solitude of Little Spider Lake gave us the vision to create a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families to enjoy. We enjoy the quiet of the area- despite being minutes from downtown Minocqua Wisconsin. Some weekends we can enjoy the solitude of the resort without having to leave. Ken enjoys ice fishing in the bay (100 feet from the cabin) in winters without other fisherman around.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      Our properties include hiking trails, biking opportunities along with canoeing- kayaking - boating- and fishing. We have found this space to be a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its finest. We take a ride around the lake on our pontoon (about 45 minutes) while seeing many eagles in the nearby trees. We even have an eagles nest on the lake! Loons are common along with viewing an occasional fox or deer on the shoreline adds to the ride. This year we have the treat of having a Loon's nest within 200' from your private deck next to the lake.Take a step back in time while enjoying the modern amenities of our favorite cabin.
