This newly-constructed and fully-furnished, beautiful, hand-scribed, log home is located on a secluded and serene northern Wisconsin lake. At the end of a dead-end gravel road, this private 40-acre site with 1200 feet of shoreline and a sandy beach is an ideal location for a getaway vacation with privacy for families, couples or several couples.
The lake and woodland site is shared with numerous creatures including beaver, otter, and muskrats in the lake; tree toads and frogs in the bog; deer, fox, porcupines, raccoons, and plenty of red squirrels in the woods; and the occasional eagle soaring overhead, to name a few. Loons will serenade you in the early morning and evening, and the owls and peepers will take over during the night. Wild geese are frequent passersby and if you are lucky you may hear ruffed grouse drumming or coyotes howling. The nearby aspen leaves provide the most delightful rustling in the gentle breeze.
In spite of it's modern conveniences, this home maintains a rustic look, thanks in large part to the hand-peeled logs and meticulous workmanship. It has central heat/air conditioning and plenty of large windows as well as accent lighting.
The great room contains a massive natural-stone fireplace, S-shaped log staircase, octagon overlooking both the lake and a smaller pond, ceiling fans, and a 22-foot ceiling. Numerous nooks and crannies, a secluded sunroom, and a 40-foot-long screened porch provide ample opportunities for solitude.
This home has numerous tasteful decorations with a hint of the southwest along with a somewhat eclectic assortment of Wisconsin 'treasures.' We have opted to have no television and find, at least for our family, that this promotes games and other 'community' activities.
Hardwood floors throughout, along with the log, cedar, and pine walls, butternut bookcases, and ash cabinets provide the warmth and charm that comes from natural wood.
The kitchen is complete with microwave oven, dishwasher, and garbage compactor along with utensils. Each bedroom has two twin beds which can be combined to provide a king-size bed. Linens and towels are provided. A washer and dryer are available as is an outside shower for those who want to experience a cleansing in nature.
In addition to the four bedrooms, there is also the opportunity to utilize a pull-out couch/bed in the sunroom and/or the large family room for additional sleeping accommodations. Beyond this, arrangements can be made to use a separate log cabin that sleeps an additional two-four guests.
The rolling grassy lawn provides the ideal location for spirited games of croquet or bocce ball, both played, of course, with special rules (more or less made up as you go) to account for the trees, roots, and hill into the lake!
A toasty fire in the fire circle (complete with plank benches and marshmallow sticks) overlooking the lake makes a great way to end the day.
The lake is home to large mouth bass, crappies, and bluegills, and a canoe is provided. The nearby Chippewa River provides additional fishing opportunities. The lake is large enough for waterskiing and a private dock is available. A nearby public landing makes launching a simple matter.

This home has all the perks! Our family stayed for a week and we were sad to leave. The home is beautiful and welcoming. The property provides amenities for a relaxing retreat away from the stresses of life. The owner was easy to contact and responsive to our questions. We will (and have already) recommended this property to our friends!

A Wonderful retreat
A Wonderful retreat
6 friends stayed here for a week in early September. It is even better than it's pictures. It's situated between a lake and a pond. Everything is so very private. There are only 2 or 3 other houses on the lake. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. The living areas were great. There were all kinds of gathering places and yet some smaller nooks to sit and read a book or just take in the scenery. The woods are wonderful for walking through and the lake was perfect for swimming. There's an outdoor shower I wish I could have taken home with me. A wonderful rental place. Highly recommended.
