"We had a great time staying at this lovely home. We also rented the cottage behind this house for our daughter's family and that one was nice too. The house has many amenities you need, including A/C which was especially nice as it got hot when we were there. The lake is awesome, water very clear and sand bottom. We heard the loons every night and enjoyed a bonfire most nights. My husband and son got fish every day, Northern, Croppies, Bass, and Sunfish and I even caught a Northern!! I would definitely recommend this place."

"We rented through VRBO. Bob replied to our inquiry right away.
We started booking that week. Bob was always kind and quick with all communications.
We got there right around 3PM on our arrival day. The house was perfect.
Everything was clean and in great shape.
The kitchen was freshly done with all stainless steel appliances, marble countertops and beautiful cabinets. So, the pictures on here are old.
We only used the dishwasher, fridge and microwave....we ate out every day. Those 3 things worked perfectly.
The 3 bathrooms were also newly remodeled.
All bedrooms and beds were great.
We never turned on the tv but the WiFi worked amazing. never any issues!
The kids loved the song that the washing machine played when the load was complete. They would set a timer so they wouldn't miss it.
The owner provided enough wood for fires every day, toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap with brush, some paper towels, some napkins, and some outdoor candles/bug spray. You never really know when renting on VRBO, this was a nice surprise to have all of these supplies.
We had an issue with a wasp nest under the boardwalk, 3 were stung on Saturday afternoon. We called Bob/Sue and within 2 hours on a Saturday during the Hodag Music Festival (everyone local attending) an exterminator was out. Nick spent almost 2 hours getting rid of the nest. They get 10 stars for caring about their guests.
The power went out in the entire area for about 2 hours one day. When power is out, no electricity and no water...so we went over to Buck Lake to swim until it was back on. The power company called us when it was fixed.
We fished on Lake Julia with a pontoon boat...never used Bob's boat. We caught bass and crappie. We are catch and release folks. We fished off the pier and caught many bluegills.
We saw deer driving in and out of Cranes Road.
I would highly recommend this place to everyone. It was perfect!!!!"

"The cabin was perfect for our family of four and our dog. The screened in gazebo (huge), dining area, and sleeping porch (awesome) were all so great and relaxing places to chill out! The cabin was appointed with plenty of towels, sheets, etc. and had cute, thoughtful decor. It really felt comfy. The entire cabin was just perfect for us. The close access to the lake was perfect and the chairs, pier, and fire pit made enjoying the scenery easy. Being in close proximity of the towns was great and we loved the secluded nature of the cabin. It was really what we all needed and we had a lovely time!!! I, in particular, loved the sleeping porch and slept out there the entire stay! It was a real treat. Thank you."

"Very well kept and comfortable cottage, lots of room, kitchen was well stocked. We saw a lot of deer and eagles, can't comment on the fishing since we had problems with our boat and didn't get out much. Locals were very friendly and helpful. Good spot for a family or any sort of a getaway."
