St. Germain house description

Jackson's offers approximately 100 wooded acres for you to enjoy. Many guests enjoy walking among the tall pines away from the cottage area. Animal lovers can see a variety of birds and other wildlife within only a minute's walk of their cottage.

A favorite place for fun is our large playground area where guests play horseshoes, volleyball, or softball We also have playground equipment and a sandbox for our younger guests.

Little St. Germain ranks as one of the top recreational lakes in northern Wisconsin. Beneath the surface of it's 956 acres roam excellent panfish, walleye, bass, northern pike, and trophy muskie. Fishing is just a small part of the lakes allure. Every summer, loons, eagles, ducks, and osprey take up residence and provide an exceptional atmosphere.

The most popular feature at Jackson's is our waterfront. The swimming area is a clear water, sand bottom that slopes gently, making it safe for children. A lawn area adjacent to the lake provides a terrific place to just relax.

Ample docking space is available for boats of all sizes. Our docks are also popular with our younger guests, as many pan fish are caught off the piers.

The Homestead was the home that George and Janet Jackson built together in 1954. Origionally 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, it was expanded in the fall of 1972 to add a master bedroom, larger dining area, 2nd bath, and extra living space. Sons Tom and Ken started the remodeling of the Homestead in late summer 2010 and finished the work in July, 2011. A porch and deck were added, and many new changes were added to make it a super vacation home. There are many items in the house celebrating the history of the resort and the Jackson Family.

During the winter months and parts of the spring and fall we are able to rent based on the number in your party. If you have a smaller group, we can modify your rate to fit your group. Consider the value of the Homestead House and all it offers when planning a trip this season.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1920

              About the owner: I'm Ken Jackson. My brother Tom and I are owners of Jackson's Lakeside Cottages on Little St. Germain Lake. Our Great-Grandfather, George H. Jackson bought this property back in 1920 and it has been running since the summer of 1921. We grew up on the resort and aside from some time at school, we have lived in St. Germain our whole lives and raise our families right on the resort property. We learned how to fish, hunt, and trap while growing up here. There is a ton of history on this property and we feel fortunate to be a part of it. We own other properties on this site, but Tom and I are particularly proud of the Homestead. It was the home where Tom and I grew up. We were truly blessed to be able to look out our bedroom windows and see the lake. We sledded down the hill, fished off the dock, and had an advantage growing up that few people can comprehend. It would be easy to say that we are invested in the property because our roots are here. It is special to us and we think it will be special for you too.

              Why the Owner Chose St. Germain:
              We thought that this location was an excellent place to expand our resort. The location is superb and the features are hard to beat. Converting this to a rental property was an easy decision.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There is a sense of being close to the action of the resort but still having a bit more privacy. Homestead is at the far west end of the property and there is a 200 foot space until you see our other rental units. There is a neighbor to the west next door, but they keep things pretty mellow. There is a ton of deer activity and some can even be fed by hand.
