"The home is nice, one bedroom upstairs (queen and bunk beds), the basement has two bedrooms that are on opposite ends of the basement with a small bathroom with a shower downstairs, bathroom upstairs with tub. The stairs to the basement are open, so if you have little ones, bring a gate. Only downsides of the rental was that there are many outdoor steps, that wasn't shown in pictures when we looked at it. When unloading and loading, it doesn't seem like much. Then the steps to the beach are a hassle if you have little ones who need to go to the bathroom, or if you forget something from the house. The kids did like the beach, and fishing from the dock. Didn't like that we had to go through PayPal (think you have better options now) and didn't get a response back as quickly as I would of liked that they received the deposit. The owners parents live next door, so if we had any problems/questions they were right there (we didn't have any). The map isn't accurate, it's near Woodboro, so further out of Rhinelander than what we thought. Upside is the home is well kept, beds comfortable and the kids had a lot of fun."

"We stayed here and were blown away from the beauty of the house and the outside. We arrived with plans to eat out for most of our meals but when we arrived we decided to stay in for all our meals and just ate out once for our 3 night weekend. It's off the beaten path but that's what makes it worthwhile especially on your own private lake. We had 7 people in our party and everyone was very comfortable! The only thing we wish was that the couch in the basement was a sleeper sofa but the sofa in the main living room was so comfortable we sat there most days just watching movies with the fireplace going. We went on a beautiful hike and explored a little. It was a little cold out so we came back in and warmed up. We played games around the big dining room table. The kitchen was so accommodating we had bountiful breakfasts and pizzas and lasagna and the counter was full of snacks. They've thought of everything and the owners were very easy to work with and sent our deposit back very fast. Thanks for letting us stay and we hope to come back again!"

"This was a great place to stay! My husband and I loved how quiet and relaxing it was. The owners have done a great job of making the place cozy and comfortable, not to mention all the little extras. Was nice to take the row and paddle boats out around the quiet lake, and also loved sitting around the fire pit. We enjoyed sitting on the dock as well! We were sad to have to leave, and we will definitely be making a trip back next year!"

"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!!!!"
