"This trip was our first real "Family Vacation" and I will tell you that Deer Ridge helped make this trip a life lasting memory! From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. It was easy to get to the cabin with the directions provided and parking was not a problem. The area felt very secure and was at ease letting the kids (5 and 8) ride their bikes around the property. I immediately noticed how well the cabin and grounds were maintained. Everything was kept nice and orderly. The inside of the cabin was spotless. From the kitchen to the bathroom, everything was very clean. We did plan our trip at the end of summer but the weather was hot and humid. The nights did cool down a bit but without A/C it was a touch stuffy inside. Oh, and be sure to take your garbage to the dumpster every night or you will be aroused out of bed by a gang of raccoons! LOL!!! My mistake!!!
The outdoor activities were amazing!!! The row boat was great to just get out on the lake and relax with the kids as my wife sat on the dock reading her book. The fishing from the pier was great. We caught some keeper size fish but we did toss them back for others to catch. The nightly fires down by the lake were great. We sat down there and just let the time pass. The kids and I laid on the pier each night and watched the blanket of stars overhead with the occasional satellite passing over.
The attractions around the cabin were great. There are many restaurants and bars only minutes from the cabin as well as gas stations and the grocery store that we visited every day! Minocqua and Eagle River are just a short drive from the cabin which added a bit more variety to our stay. Both of those towns are fantastic and have lots to offer but it was nice to get back to the cabin after a day of tourist stuff and leave the hustle and bustle behind.
All in all, this trip was perfect! The cabin was awesome and the Northwoods were spectacular! I would recommend this cabin to anyone!"

"Birch Lane was a great place. There were 8 people in our group and, for the most part, there was plenty of room. The living room had room for 8 people to visit (needed to move chairs from the dining room table, but it was fine) and the stools from the kitchen counter were moved to the dining room table. The master suite (king bed) has a bathroom, the main floor bathroom on the main floor with two bedrooms (a queen bed in each bedroom), and then the basement bedroom with two twins does not have a bathroom. That was a bit awkward, but is doable. I would recommend this for 6 adults and two kids. The home has a woodsy feel and we really enjoyed the house. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses (including wine glasses!), pots and pans, and baking pans. The property manager communicated well and I enjoyed working with her. There was really only one negative - it says there is satellite tv, but we couldn't get the college or NFL football games we wanted because the subscription was very limited. We went on a Scenic Trolley tour, shopped, and enjoyed Peninsula Pub."

"My husband and I just returned from a lovely long weekend at Kathryn's. The setting is truly beautiful with a wonderful garden and just a short walk to the water. What we particularly enjoyed was how charming and comfortable the interior of the house was and obviously decorated with care and welcoming touches for visitors. We both enjoy cooking and found the kitchen well stocked while also enjoying the dining choices in town. Our experience was very positive. We'll definitely return to this welcoming home! And we'd recommend to our friends and families."
