                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We have enjoyed Wisconsin 'getaways' for years while raising our family of 3 children who now are all adults. It's just great to take our 'mini-vacations' whenever we can and go to our lakehouse for a stress-free experience. We love fishing, having the ever-growing family come up and enjoy our freshly caught fish dinners. Of course, we could not skip eating out at Blink Bonnie's, stopping at Cathy's ice cream shop or having divine Italian dining at Spang's--all within just minutes from our private 'resort'. We love watching the Eagles, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, bluebirds, deer just to name a few of the wildlife creatures we have witnessed up here. We have actually spotted bear on 2 occasions over the years, but that is very rare. We also like the convenience of shopping the unique stores in Minocqua and Eagle River. And of course, the Indian casino is only 30-35 minutes away. Golfing is under 10 minutes from our lake home, including an awesome mini-golf for the children. Go-karting, horseback riding, tubing on the waters is only a few miles on 70 toward Eagle River. It's gorgeous in the fall with a wide array of beautiful colored trees and nice weather with craft shows and festivals. Winter is a new beginning for the snowmobilers and skiiers since we are in the middle of snowmobile country--Eagle River being the capital of snowmobiling. Hop on our lake to get on a trail or just down to 'J'. Trails are plentiful! But come back to Petry lake house and with a push of a button, you will have a cozy gas log enclosed fireplace heating our great room in a matter of minutes. All we can say is 'enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy'. Our promise is that you probably will not want to go back home when the time comes for your departure! It can be a' fantasy land- 'that is for certain for adults as well as children.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Germain:
                  It's far enough to call it the 'Northwoods'. We feel like we are 'getting away' with something by driving the 4 hours to come up here. We leave all of our stress back at home--it's kind of a 'cleansing' thing. lol You will know what we are talking about once you experience it. If you are like us, you will not want to go home on that final day! We love the fishing here, or just the soothing quiet with the sound of loon as we are drifting on the lake or sitting in our screened in porch, the shops, the eating, the peaceful, relaxing life, the many activities that we can do if we feel like it and on occasion the Indian casino! And it's just beautiful when the snows come. Snowmobiling is also quite a fun experience--we are only minutes from the snowmobile capital of the world---Eagle River! But when we arrive home, with a push of a button, our enclosed gas log fireplace pops on and heats the family room/great room in a matter of minutes. That's a good time to enjoy the satellite tv or our family collection of dvd movies we offer while cozying up on our leather pit group as well as the big leather recliner. Petry lake house is secluded but yet not far from conveniences of life. That's what we like--the best of both worlds.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  One very important thing we neglected to mention is that on occasion we love bringing some of our good friends up so they can experience it as well. We enjoy 'sharing' our Northwoods'' home away from home' so that others may find the joy we do in getting away from it all. It's a great 'stress reliever' we have found. It has also been wonderful in doing alot of family 'bonding' with our family--children/grandchildren. Experiences we would not trade for the world. We hope you decide to experience it yourselves with Petry lake house!
