Property description

Relaxing. Tranquil. Scenic....Consider our year around home as your dream vacation spot! Located 10 miles west of Spooner, WI on a 400 acre lake, Lipsett is known for its: fishing, recreational activities and its leisure activities. We invite you to bring your boat or jet ski and secure them to the dock. In the summer, relax on the wrap around deck with a cool beverage or an evening dinner and enjoy the relaxing views and the phenomenal sunsets! Enjoy a campfire while roasting hot dogs and s'mores while taking in the sounds of the loons and eagles. Enjoy the lake activity and views while relaxing on the lakeside patio. If canoeing, kayaking or paddle boating interest you, they are available during your stay. Winter offers just as many recreational opportunities with ice fishing, cross country skiing , snowshoeing and snowmobiling to mention a few. Access the nearest snowmobile trail at the end of our driveway and decide whether to visit the trails in Burnett or Washburn counties.

Our home is situated about 0.5 miles in from the main road, nestled in the woods, on the lake. It is a modified A-frame with 3 bedrooms (king/king/queen) and a spacious loft with 2 queen beds and a twin bed. The main floor offers a relaxing TV room with a gas fireplace, an open gourmet kitchen with a counter for dining, a knotty pine 4-season porch surrounded by windows and views of the lake, access to the deck, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The basement offers another TV room, gas fireplace, wet bar and refrigerator, walk out to the lake, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room.

The shore of our property offers shallow water and is perfect for small children to safely enjoy.

While our home is considered 'in the woods', the amenities are just like being at your own home with 3 TV's with satellite reception, a DVD, a kitchen well stocked with cookware and utensils, dishwasher, 2 refrigerators with one being a high quality Sub-Zero, a Thermador convection oven, drinking water purifier, water softner, wireless internet, a treadmill, central air conditioning and a gas grill. You will find everything you possibly need to make your stay enjoyable.

Driving time from the St. Paul MN area is about 2 hours. A day trip to Hayward, WI will take about 40 minutes, 90 minutes to Duluth, MN and 45 minutes to Rice Lake, WI.

Whether you are looking for a fast paced, activity filled vacation or a quiet escape from the busy routine, our home on Lipsett Lake will exceed your expectation. We invite you to come see for yourself!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We purchased our lake home when we retired in 1995. We have enjoyed many years and wonderful memories at the lake with our children and grandchildren. As our lifestyles have changed over the years, we have now decided to share our home with others.

Why the Owner Chose Spooner:
We have been vacationing to the northwestern Wisconsin since the 1960's and fell in love with the area. When the opportunity arose, we were able to fulfill our dreams of purchasing a home on a beautiful lake in the area we have so come to love!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing quite like sitting on the deck and watching the unbelievable sunsets across the lake. We have nicknamed one of the eagles that lands in our tree, 'Harley'. To see the beauty of this raptor at such a close distance is amazing. Our property is almost level to the lake, with only a few steps to reach the dock. This is handy for families with small children and those who are challenged with mobility.
