  • Great Cozy Cabin

    "My husband, 9 month old son, and 2 dogs stayed here for Thanksgiving. Everything was wonderful. The cabin was clean and stocked with everything we needed. The owner was very easy to work with and accommodating. The cabin is located in a beautiful and quiet are. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope to go back soon!"

  • Quiet getaway in the beautiful northwoods

    "We took a quick fall getaway to Kring's Retreat this past September. We loved the solitude of the house; located far enough from town to be peaceful and quiet, yet close enough to St. Germain, Eagle River and Minocqua to take advantage of restaurants and shops. I loved the set-up of the home, which really has two separate sleeping wings. This allows people with different interests (reading vs watching tv) to have their own peace and quiet! The house is decorated in an very quaint style, and the home well appointed. I loved the big clawfoot tub and beautiful bathroom! The home is also situated very close to the water, giving you great water views from most rooms. The outdoor firepit sits right on the lake and is stocked with firewood, a great bonus. We were also able to fish from the pier where we caught a few perch, and take a spin in the canoe on a gorgeous fall day. I would recommend the home for families or couples looking to get away from it all! Great hosts and well appointed home."

  • Really fun birthday week!

    "I rented the cabin for the week of my 50th birthday and invited 7 friends to join me for the week. We had a wonderful time and absolutely perfect weather (high's in the mid-70's and low's in the 50's). We immediately turned the A/C off when we arrived and opened the windows and did not turn it back on until we were ready to leave on the 9th. We cooked in almost every night. The kitchen was very well supplied with plates, cooking utensils, and such - even though some of my more foodie friends brought their own knives, skillets, etc. We had so many cooking tools and food we had trouble finding a place to put it all - which is no fault to the cabin. The kitchen would have needed to be a commercial size one to accommodate all the food and wine people brought and bought. The beds were very comfortable and there were more than ample towels and blankets. Having the washer & dryer on premises was a great bonus as some people with allergies did find they needed to wash the sheets before they could sleep on them from the fabric softener that had been used. Again, not a problem and very convenient that they could deal with the issues on-site. We spent every morning drinking coffee on the deck and wine on the deck every evening before and after dinner. We built a campfire two nights and roasted marshmallows for s'mores. Plus, the weather was so great we ate two dinners on the picnic table by the fire. Our only critique of the deck was that for a cabin that sleeps 8 it would have been nice to have 8 Adirondack chairs so everyone could be comfortable when we were sitting around on the deck chatting. The location of the cabin in Door County makes it very convenient to many of the attractions in the area and a good base camp. Lastly, in an ideal world the two bathrooms would arranged differently as one is part of the master suite in the loft and not really accessible to the guests using the other three bedrooms. Makes for a bit of an unbalanced utilization of resources when everyone is trying to get ready of a morning or ready for bed at night."

  • perfect family vacation

    "We spent a week in Fish Creek and had a wonderful time. We have two small children under the age of 5 and they loved every second of our stay in Door County. The house was perfect for us, equipped with games, children's plates, and books. The bedrooms were comfortable, and our son loved sleeping on the twin bed with a "night light" above him. At night the boys got to take a bath in the jacuzzi tub which made them actually look forward to going to bed. When we weren't out and about, everyone enjoyed the amenities like the pools, tennis courts and playground. I would happily return to this location and home again for years to come!"

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.
