About the owner: Brenda and Harlan Accola are lifelong residents of Central Wisconsin that have traveled many places in the world but still like Wisconsin the best. Married for over 25 years with 4 sons they wanted a home that would be perfect for families and friends to get together in the northwoods with lots of room inside and out.
Why the Owner Chose Presque Isle: We searched many spots to find this perfect slice of northern Wisconsin lake front that is so rare. It had to be a big home because so many cabins get really cramped when vacations and holidays come around with friends and family and the kids friends come to visit. It also had to lots of acreage and a long shore line because otherwise it is like being on the suburbs with a lake out front and you get no true seclusion or peace and quiet. The lake had to be clear and clean so you felt great after a swim. It could not be part of a chain with a parade of boats and jet skis always going by the front which killed the privacy and the quiet. And it had to have all the amenities. Being in the northwoods does not mean roughing it. This is not a campground. If we want to read or sit in the sun or paddle around with a kayak on a quiet lake, that is fine but we also want phone service, satellite TV and a fully equipped kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Our lives are busy and stressful with full time jobs in mortgage banking and real estate. We appreciate complete get a ways with peace and quiet. The minute you drive down the tree lined, black topped driveway and emerge in the clearing and see the lake below you, you will immediately lower your blood pressure, breathe in deeply and relax.
