  • Even Better Than Advertised

    "If you are looking for a true Northwoods experience look no further than Smoky Lake Lodge. This beautiful home was everything we were looking for and more. We recently spent a week here with 3 families including 6 adults and 10 children. There was plenty of sleeping room and the kids loved the spacious loft with bunk beds. The house was stocked as if the owners lived there themselves. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and was quick to respond when we had some questions while we were there. The water was crystal clear and you couldn't throw in a fishing line without pulling out a fish. We loved the fact that the home was surrounded by the beautiful forest and the privacy was unmatched. The kids especially loved the huge yard where every day at 3:30 they held a whiffle ball game. We definitely recommend this home for a family getaway. We can't wait to vacation at the lodge again next year. Thank you Neil."

  • Great family vacation spot!

    "We had a fantastic week at Hidden Pines! The accommodations were perfect for our two families of four. The kids loved the water, mini-golfing, horseback riding, and go-carting. Lots of great hiking. The lake was quiet and we rented a power boat from St. Germain Sport and Marine for tubing. We also used the canoe, row boat, and paddle boat from the cabin. Tons of great wildlife too!"

  • A Perfect Retreat

    "Our family of 4 recently concluded a month long rental in August 2014 at Bob and Jeanne’s cabin. Bob and Jeanne are gracious hosts. Both greeted us on our arrival and made effort to connect with us periodically during our time at the cabin. Long-time visitors to the Northwoods of Wisconsin, we could not have been more happy with our experience here. The cabin was perfectly appointed with plenty of room to accommodate our family, plus several members of our extended family who visited us periodically during our rental. With its knotted pine interior and big stone fireplace, the house has that perfect Northwoods feel. The glass sided deck and huge windows provide outstanding views of the lake and the undeveloped state forest on the opposite shore. From the flagstone patio (complete with fire pit) to the nicely maintained lakefront area, it’s clear that Bob and Jeanne have invested a lot of time and effort to make the house and overall property a true retreat for their guests. Little Spider Lake is a lovely lake of about 235 acres. It feels a lot bigger given its shape, which offer a number of coves, inlets and bays to explore. With Bob’s recommendation, we rented a pontoon boat to use during our time for fishing/swimming and general boating on the lake. A buoy in the middle of the lake marks a sandbar/island that was fun to visit and swim off of. The water is extremely clear. It is a good lake for both swimming and fishing. We caught a large number of respectable largemouth bass and oodles of pan fish during our time. Eagles and loons were ever-present while we were on the lake. Other reviews and the property description already adequately and accurately tout the nearby amenities. It really is hard to imagine a better location. Our family particularly enjoyed riding the Boulder Junction bike trail, swimming and beaching at Crystal Lake, and hiking the Fallison Lake Nature Trail. All just a short 5 minute drive from the cabin. The Northern Cafe and its fantastic breakfast fare is not to be missed. Having rented other properties in surrounding communities in recent years (some good, some lacking), none would top Bob & Jeanne's on our list of recommendations."

Northeast Travel Tips

Northeast Wisconsin Vacation Rentals Make the Perfect Bases for Enjoying Beautiful Lakes and Rivers

Northeast Wisconsin is blessed with a host of natural resources. Situated close to Green Bay, Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes, which contain 20 percent of the earth's freshwater, make the perfect vacation destination for those seeking water-based activities. Summer activities are focused upon the many lakes and rivers in the area, while the cold winters provide excellent opportunities for skiing, ice fishing and other winter sports.

Northeast Wisconsin Lodging Offers Plenty to See and Do

The area around your northeast Wisconsin vacation lodging is a natural paradise for boating and fishing enthusiasts. It is the home of the smallmouth bass and some of the area's best fishing can be enjoyed on the Cisco chain of lakes. Walleye, musky, northern pike and a variety of panfish can all be caught from the dock or a small boat. Water sports including waterskiing and sailing are popular in the area, along with boating, tubing, Jet Skiing and swimming. ATV trails are also a great way to enjoy exploring the woodland trails.

Walking in the area is a popular activity, especially around the 26-acre Crawford Lake which has a maintained walking trail around it. It makes the most of the beautiful lakeside scenery. The area also has abundant wildlife opportunities. See fish jumping, deer grazing, red and grey squirrels foraging for food, and foxes trotting through the woodland glades. Loons, the short-tailed water birds which are found in this area, can often be seen diving for fish, and blue herons stalk the edges of the lakes. Porcupines and wild turkeys are a delight to discover and birdwatchers will be thrilled at the regular sightings of bald eagles overhead.

Winter activities are just as exciting with many opportunities for snowmobiling and other winter sports. Granite Peak is the place to enjoy downhill skiing in the area, along with ice fishing, skating and cross country skiing.

Wisconsin Vacation Rentals Are Well Located for Exploring the Area

Rib Mountain Ski Hill is a popular place for visitors as it has excellent amenities, great restaurants and plentiful shopping. Green Bay is a popular place to visit at the mouth of the Fox River in a sub-basin of Lake Michigan. It is home to the National Railroad Museum and the Neville Public Museum with exhibits of art, history and science. The town is also home to the Green Bay Packers professional football team which has won more titles than any other NFL team. The Hazelwood Historic House Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and also well worth a visit.

The Historic District of Oshkosh has 27 historic buildings including a bank, homes, churches, schools, firehouse, courthouse, cemetery and observatory. The town is the home of the original Oshkosh Brewing Company.
