Phelps cottage description

Welcome to Cabin 14 Wanders Rest!

Located on the south shore of beautiful Lac Vieux Desert, home of the world-record tiger musky, our cabin promises to be a perfect weekend getaway or week-long retreat for the whole family. Nestled among the pine trees, our cottage is part of McPartlin’s Condominium Association and boasts some of the most peaceful and open grounds on the lake. Your boat slip is just a short walk away, and we have two parking spots available right in front of our cabin. The boat landing is less than a mile away.

Our cabin of 504 square feet features two bedrooms, a living room with kitchen, and a bathroom. With a queen-size, double, and full hideaway bed in the couch, our cabin can accommodate up to six people. Fresh linens will be ready for use when you arrive. The kitchen is fully furnished with a gas stove and oven, refrigerator, sink, and microwave. All utensils, dishes, and silverware are provided, but we ask that you wash whatever you use. The bathroom includes a shower, lighted vanity, chair, and toilet, but please make sure to bring your own towels. Although our cabin is not air-conditioned, we have four ceiling fans to help you keep cool on the occasional humid summer afternoon.

In addition to this, we have Dish TV, a VCR, and DVD player in case a rainy day keeps you from enjoying the outdoors. We have four chairs and a charcoal grill ready if you feel like grilling out. Feel free to bring your own boat, but you may have to take the cabin boat out since we are only entitled to one slip. The cabin also comes with a 14-foot aluminum rowboat with oars, two adult and one child medium-sized life-jacket. Generally, the boat will be in the water with a cabin 14 label, but it may be moved up on shore depending on the number of boats in the water. On the resort grounds, we have a horseshoe pit although equipment is not provided. There is also a basketball hoop with a ball available for use in our cabin.

Besides fishing on Vieux Desert or the host of lakes nearby, the area has a number of great activities. At Thunderbay Resort, just a little way down the shore from us, jetskis are available for rental. If you’re looking for a quality swimming lake, crystal clear Torch Lake is the perfect spot just outside of Conover. In Eagle River, you can enjoy miniature golf, go-kart racing, horseback riding, and zip-lining, not to mention visiting the many gift shops that line Eagle River’s main street.

We generally like to rent from Saturday to Saturday in the summer. If your summer week is still available within two weeks of your visit, we offer it for a three night minimum stay.

Due to association rules, we cannot permit pets, tents, or campers. State law requires that you refrain from smoking in the cabin though it is permitted anywhere on the grounds. Please feel free to call with any questions between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m central time.

Thanks for your consideration, and we look forward to helping you plan your next vacation!
