  • Great Family Vacation

    "We spent the week here with my sisters families and had a wonderful time. The pool was great and we spent plenty of time there. The lake is big and quiet, without a lot of boat traffic, so it was great for tubing, fishing, etc. The house was great for our family with plenty of room for 12 and dogs. Any problems we did encounter were handled immediately by the owners. Great week and vacation."

  • Family with teens

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Scheer's. The cabin was very clean and nice. It was right next to a restaurant, ice cream shop, clothes shop and the lumberjack shows. We went to all and enjoyed them! It is on Hayward Lake, which is a small lake. We also went to Round Lake, which is not far away. It is perfect for a family of four, but more so for younger children. We have two teens, and the second bedroom was small with two twin beds. No air in the second bedroom either, so we bought a large fan for the room. Other than that, it worked well and was a very pleasant stay. It also didn't hurt that the weather was perfect the entire 6 days we were there!"

  • Great experience!

    "10 of us stayed for along weekend. It was better than we had anticipated. Wonderful home, fully equipped,beautiful surroundings. We wish there was more to do (hiking, adventure, etc) around the area, it is quite far from any of those activities, but a great place to stay with a larger group. Difficult to figure out the sound system, movie system, and TV as instructions are not provided, but we got most of it to work. No WiFi, so no need to bring computers for internet access unless that is changed from today's date. Very appreciative of the space and the home to use! We will rent again and perhaps take on a time when the weather will permit use of the lake too! THANKS!"

  • Simply spectacular!

    "Eaglesnest is everything you could want in a northwoods retreat, and Gail and Rick are excellent hosts. We've traveled the world; much of America, Euorpe, Asia, the Carribean, and have never felt so welcome and at home. Only negative is that we had to leave so soon."
