With only two cottages on this 1,000+ acre lake, here is your rare opportunity for a soothing refuge in an otherwise stressful life...Step back in time at Little Trout Lake and relax, restore and revitalize at this lakeside cottage (actually only a few steps from the waters' edge.) Have fun feeding the ducks, watch the stunning sunsets (or approaching rain), listen to the music of loons calling, and smell the pines and fresh air.,,play in the water, explore in a boat, or loll in a hammock. So much to do, or not!

Sparsely inhabited (only two dwellings on the entire lake), there is little need to share the clear water and unspoiled shoreline...a wonderful opportunity for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, photography, painting, reading, writing and so much more. Nearby are small communities, boutique shopping, golf courses, rustic biking, hiking roads, fine restaurants and casino.

AND the cottage kitchen is well-stocked with equipment to allow in-kitchen or outside picnic eating. Charcoal grill, redwood chairs and hammock are located under-the-pines on grassy shaded shoreline area. Four Adirondeck chairs and stone firepit are lakeside. Additionally, the cottage deck offers a small table and chairs overlooking the lake... a perfect spot to observe hummingbirds, loons, eagles, ospreys and other wildlife.

Bring your binoculars to watch ducks, eagles, loons, osprey, deer, otters, fox and whoever else should come along. This is also a great place to watch clouds, stars, rainstorms and lightning. If things get too exciting (or wet), then a retreat to the enclosed porch will provide an equally fine observation area.

Our quiet and private Vilas County cottage (only 12' from the waters' edge) is home to a long, sugar-sand private beach, perfect swimming areas and deep fishing holes. In spite of its name, Little Trout Lake is not small...its over 1,000 acres of water. A kayak, canoe and rowboat are available for a small fee upon request. A 14' motorboat, 15 hp motor and gas can be rented on premises for $175/week or $40/day.

The cottage was built by a railroad executive for himself and his family at the time the railroad was first extended to the Northwoods. No roads to the site were available and all materials were delivered on sleds pulled by horses across the lake on the ice during the winter time. It has been very well-maintained by its subsequent owners and retains its vintage character.

Here are a few comments from recent visitors: ...an adventure to get here and the reward is a little bit of heaven...I love this place....Last night was so quiet, I think I heard the stars shining....I saw a young deer come on down to the shoreline for a sip.... The water is incredibly clean and clear....I brought my favorite authors along and haven't thought to visit with them yet...It can't be time to leave yet, is it? I don't want to to go home....

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: There is something special about the Northwoods and something extra special about a Northwoods lake and something really extra special about Little Trout Lake. This secluded property offers 'memorable moments' to call upon whenever everyday life needs an uplift.

Why the Owner Chose Manitowish Waters:
Where else could anyone find a thousand-plus acre lake with only two cottages on it?....a rare and unspoiled get-away. Nature at its best. Short drive to Powell Marsh Bird Sanctuary and Wildlife Area and adjacent to an operating cranberrry marsh. Only minutes to Boulder Junction, Manitowish Waters, Sayner, Woodruff and Minocqua.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being here at Little Trout Lake is like being the only person(s) in the world. The only neighbor is the owner who is far enough away to be unseen and unheard...And close enough if needed. The cottage's vintage character is cozy and homey and draws you into its' relaxed comfort.
