  • Great Lake House

    "My wife and I drove the six hours from Chicago and stayed a week. We had a wonderful time staying at the main house. Mike was great to work with and very responsive through the whole process. The accommodations of the main house were very clean and fit our needs perfectly. The house had a great layout with a very nice sunroom. The fire pit was in a good location to spend the evenings while enjoying the spectacular view of the stars. We had good pan fishing off the dock and we rented a boat from Boulder Marine Center that worked out great for us. They picked me up from the house with the boat and dropped me off at the landing about one mile from the house. It couldn't have worked out better. We saw numerous eagles soaring through the sky and perched on branches in the trees. We also saw a family of otters swimming alongside our boat. Fishing on the lake was good; while I was unable to land a Musky we still caught several perch and a few bass among others. The town has everything a small Northwood's town needs including small grocery, good bait shop and a few bars & restaurants. I would also recommend taking a day and exploring the downtown area of Minocqua about a 30 minute drive south. We could have easily stayed a few more days and we’ll be looking for opportunities to return in the future."

  • 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."
