We have stayed at the Whitefish Properties as we love and trust their team and staff in all areas! We were excited that we were able to get Ruth Lake Retreat for almost 2 weeks for a much needed get away. We entertained family and friends over the Labor Day Weekend and had people of all ages here that absolutely loved this very special retreat and property. It's clean and up to date with wonderful amenities including the televisions and appliances that make everyone's stay a pleasure. This would be a great place for several families to share, family reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, church retreats, etc. It's perfect for families with kids and teens. If they get bored on a rainy day it's their fault. The stunning panoramic view of the water and sunsets from this outstanding home takes your breath away 24 hours a day! It is so peaceful and private which allows you to really relax and rest! We have already booked 2 weeks again in 2014 and are very excited to once again get away to our new family hideaway for fun in the sun and relaxation.

Ruth lake retreat
Ruth lake retreat
Rented for family reunion place was huge and really nice except for a few problems. No curtains on two of bedrooms, silverware draw had mice droppings in them had to was out,grill did not work full of Greece had to clean before it would even light,outside of windows were covered in spider webs and dirty and one of my grand kids was playing hide and seek in house, he hid in utility room and was bit my a snake. We eventually found it and killed it. I then called the resort and was told they would send exterminator,which they did next day. They also said would send a cleaning crew out to clean windows but we were in the middle of a family reunion and said no. Place just needs a little attention before renting out each time. Like the little things of even no ends on pool cues so a person could a least play pool on that nice table.

Manager response: We are concerned about the issues that you had during your stay at the Ruth Lake Retreat. We appreciate you taking the time to bring these matters to our attention. I have spoke with the Executive Housekeeper to make sure that the cleaning issues are taken care of. Unfortunately with being in the north woods we do come across the occasional unwelcome visitors. We as a company try hard to resolve any issue with the property immediately. However, we respect your refusal to have us come out to the property during the middle of your stay. We hope the reimbursement of the cleaning fee would make it satisfactory. We have had all of the issues taken care of and would like to thank you again for taking time to give us the feedback that helps us better our company.

This home was nicely spaced for our extended family of 8 adults and 6 kids (ages 5-15). It had all the "stuff" you'd need for a mini or extended get away. A very cozy & welcoming home. We enjoyed a wonderful, 1st snowfall during our Thanksgiving meal at the table that accommodated all 14 of us. A perfect homestead for any season. It has all the standard items, from bath to kitchen. Plan to bring along (if you'll need) wine glasses, wine opener (we had our own along), pizza cutter and cookie sheet type pan. We would definitely visit this home in the future. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy!
