  • Not your typical up-north cabin....

    "I am a very picky traveler, and have never been very impressed with any vacation properties in the Wisconsin northwoods. However, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this one. It was clean and comfortable, very roomy and private, reasonably priced and the owners clearly wanted us to be happy. The bathroom is an important factor for me, and this one was clean, the shower curtain appeared new, nothing gross was seen growing anywhere. The bed had a memory foam topper on it that was comfortable. The fireplace made it cozy at night. The free WiFi was handy so we could check the weather and radar before starting off on an outdoor adventure. We have AT&T, so we had cell phone reception almost all the time. We took a short walk to the end of their trail to see their horses. My husband enjoyed the fishing, and even caught a 21" walleye on the last day. One of the main purposes of our trip was to go atv riding, which isn't an option in Vilas county. But trails in neighboring counties are so close, it was worth it to drive to a different county for trail-riding, while staying at this exceptional property."

  • Perfect "Up North" retreat

    "This is exactly what a cabin "up north" should be! Peaceful and private on a 500" stretch of shoreline, extremely well-maintained, comfortable and cosy - plus a great HD TV, wireless internet and a land-line phone - make this property one of the most comfortable ones you could find - a great lake home with a "woodsy" feel to it. A brand new mattress provided the best nights' sleep in years. The kitchen was well stocked and as my husband said, "the knives were good and sharp"! We always had hot water, there were plenty of towels, heat or air conditioning was available and we had comfortable furniture to curl up in. Having Steve and Sharon, the caretakers, available during one's stay is certainly a plus and Bob, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and only a phone call away. From the loons calling to each other across the lake to the eagles soaring across the front of the cabin, you'll always be aware that you are, indeed, in God's country. We certainly highly recommend this property and hope to return again next year."

  • Perfect place for a wedding!

    "My son and his fiance (now wife) chose to have a very intimate wedding in the Door Peninsula, a favorite place of theirs. When they came across this rental, they immediately knew it was the perfect place for their special day! They actually had both the ceremony and reception on the property. The rooms are all beautifully unique and there was plenty of room for everyone to stay. Off of the common room was a kitchen that was well supplied with cookware and a large fridge and freezer- everything we needed to cook and store food for the reception. The grounds and location were beautiful- just across the road from the marina. It made for a great photo backdrop at sunset. The owner was very accessible and accomodating. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have a family reunion or an intimate wedding celebration."

  • Excellent

    "No matter if your empty nesters, such as us, or a family King's Family Cottage offers a quiet, and relaxing vacation. We enjoy the rustic, yet not without conveniences, atmosphere of the cottage. Over the past 20 years or so we have been coming here, Mr King has added many amenities to the property. These now include WiFi, and a large screen television with Netflix streaming video. The two on property lakes offer excellent pan fishing, catch and release for us, a canoe, and paddle a boat are provided. There are a number of excellent supper clubs in the area, for those that do not want to take advantage of the modern kitchen, or the charcoal grill. At night the sky is so clear star watching by a campfire is our favorite thing to do. We also check the NASA website, to get viewing times, and watch the international space station pass overhead almost every night. We highly recommend a vacation, at King's Family Cottage."

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.

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.
