Perfect Place to see fall color.
Perfect Place to see fall color.
The home matched the photos on the internet. WOW, how good is that? Clean, comfortable, well equipped, what more could you want? Well maybe the chocolate surprise on each bed! The owner is fantastic, never too busy to answer any question you may have, even tho she already supplied more information than was required, loved that. A pleasure to speak with on the phone. All in all my husband and I and two of our sons and their wives were in heaven and will certainly return whenever we can. Thanks for sharing your beautiful lake property.

Our family had a great stay at this extremely clean well kept home. The views and setting are better than pictures can show and the house was perfect. The Lake is quiet and the boat was almost brand new, so we spent most days out on the lake. Excellent place to stay if you really want to get away from everything and relax. The sorrounding towns offer great food and fun family things to do. We will definitely be back.

Petry Lake House
Petry Lake House
We just returned from a wonderful week at the Petry Lake House on beautiful Pickeral Lake. The house was everything we hoped it would be, beautifully maintained,very warm and inviting. We were able to fit our children and grandchild quite comfortably. We really enjoyed our time spent on the screened porch having coffee and listening to the loons in the morning and enjoying the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The home is close to the bike trail system which we used daily.The lake has a lovely sandy beach area directly under an eagle's nest. Every afternoon we would venture over there and many times saw the eagle in the nest or soaring above us. We are looking forward to returning next year!

lovely home on beautiful northern WI lake
lovely home on beautiful northern WI lake
Our family had a fabulous time on our holiday. The home was well furnished with comfortable sofa, big screen TV and internet...and the home was spotless. It was great to have these comforts however we spent most of our time watching our kids catch countless perch, crappie and sunfish. We listened to the loons and watched the baby loon sit on mom's back, observed a osprey teaching her baby how to catch fish, watched a bald eagle catch fish and spotted a couple turtles swimming. The lake was warm and the kids had a blast swimming. We rented the pontoon which added to the fun. The owners are very responsive. Definitely recommend this holiday home to our friends and in fact will come back again next year.

We recently stayed with our family at the Petry Lake Home. My wife and our five young children throughly enjoyed our stay there. The house was immaculate and on a rainy day they have a excellent library of DVD's and VHS movies. We have rented several other homes from VRBO in the past, and this one by far has the others all beat! The lake was quiet, yet big enough for all water activities. Plenty of fish action right off the pier to keep even small children interested. One other comment, the owners are extremly responsive when communicating back and forth when making reservations and or answering questions about the area. You will not go wrong renting this cabin for your vaction.

Wonderfully relaxing getaway in the Northwoods of Wisconsin
Wonderfully relaxing getaway in the Northwoods of Wisconsin
We recently stayed at this lovely home in the north woods of Wisconsin. We were seeking a quiet escape to really relax, and this fit the bill beautifully! The owners are incredibly welcoming and their home is very warm. The home is very private, on a lake, beautifully maintained, with many touches that make you feel extremely welcome (we even were welcomed with local baked goods we could eat the next day for breakfast :). The pictures and listing give a great overview of the property, but don't really capture the peaceful feeling we had relaxing on the screened in porch or on the back deck. St Germain is a charming town, but close enough to restaurants, miniature golf, go-carting if we wanted to get away for a bit. The lake is very quiet which added to the serenity, although we did rent jet skis for a couple of days. My favorite part was sitting on the porch at night and listening to the loons. I would highly recommend this home.

Our absolute favorite steak place! First come first serve here. Sizzling hot plates with the best filets known to mankind! You will not be disappointed! Under 10 minutes from Petry lake house. Turn left at "J", go 1 mile, turn left on 70W. for another mile. Turn left on 70W for 3 miles. It's that quick! You might have a wait if you are not there at an earlier time. But it's SOOO worth it!...MoreCollapse
A wonderful deli/grocery store, but an even more FANTASTIC bakery! You had better get there in the early morning--by 8AM or so to get your favorites! Closes at 2pm but there won't be anything left anyway other than in the grocery store. Cranberry fritters are our favorite!! You will LOVE this bakery!...MoreCollapse

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!
