  • SIMPLY PERFECT!

    "Our family of four, two adults and two girls (ages 7 and 5) stayed 4 nights at the end of July-2nds of August. This cabin had everything we needed and gave us everything we were looking for during our stay. The cabin itself is older and definately has a "cabin" feel. It is not flashy and is not modern, but it was PERFECT for us. The cabin sits on a nice big lot with woods on both sides, so you cannot see the neighbors and really dont know they exist unless you are on the dock. Has a nice big back yard with a hammock and swing that our kids loved to lay and play on. Outdoor shed has just about anything you need in it; life jackets, grills, fishing nets. There is also a paddle boat and row boat to use. We had hours of fun getting out on the two boats and paddling around the lake. Little water traffic and very quiet (we were there during the week though). Endless catching of bluegills and perch right off the dock. They werent the biggest fish but our kids just LOVED having the chance to catch something. We caught enough big blue gills that we fried them up for dinner one night...yum! Much of our time was spent just relaxing on the dock or in the back yard. The kids loved swimming right off the dock. The water was clean but did have grassy spots and does have a red tint to it. We had NO cell service the whole time but we were in need of some isolation so that worked perfect for us. The owner Jerry even offered for us to use his land-line any time we wanted if we needed it. Definately wished we had a power boat of some kind. We will keep that in mind for future use. It is about 15 minutes from Phillips (definately no longer) which offers some little shops, restaurants, several parks, and some other sight seeing. Its not a huge bustling town, but it suited our needs. I did some research and knew it was perfect for us. Working with Jerry was VERY easy and he was a very nice guy. Their house was just down the road and he repeatedly said during check in to stop over if we needed anything. Again, my kids are 7 and 5 and it was perfect but they did have some of their own toys and play well anywhere. If your kids are older (12-17) I could see them maybe getting a little bored. Again, there is no cell or internet service. But if you want relaxation and R&R then this is the place. Thanks again Jerry!!"

  • What a great Cabin!!!

    "Corey & Kristin were terrific to schedule this for me and my family. The cabin is truly "fully furnished", and it was very comfortable. We stayed for 2 nights, and loved every minute of it. I Also recommend speaking with Dave @ Flambeau Sports if you are looking for information about fishing or canoe/kayak rental. Very nice guy. Thanks again for helping our family create lifelong memories!!"

  • Perfect Stay Up North!

    "My boyfriend and I rented this cabin/home for the 4th of July week. It was a very smooth process from start to finish. I had emailed Jim and called Carolyn with a few questions before we arrived and everything was taken care of. The cabin itself was more than we expected (the photos don't do it justice). Everything was provided including towels and linens. It also has an air conditioning unit. The bed was comfortable and we slept in the room facing the lake. We opened the windows at night and listened to the water crash against the shore and the loons that were right off the dock. It was pretty great! We also fished pretty much everyday while we were there. The weather was a bit windy during our stay, so we didn't go out as much as we wanted too, but we were able to catch panfish off the dock. The boat landing is within walking distance and the dock is available to tie up too the entire stay. There was also a paddleboat, row boat, and canoe to use, but we didn't use any of them. Jim and Carolyn were great hosts (thanks for sharing some beer with us Jim!) and we would love to come back and stay again either in the fall or next summer. The location was perfect, and the sunsets were amazing everyday! You won't regret staying here if you want to get a way for a week! We loved it! Tanya & Kevin"

  • fall colors!

    "Our stay at Abels 4 Season Retreat was perfect for our family gathering! We were able to enjoy the beautiful fall colors on the property, and took many stunning photos! The well appointed kitchen enabled us to make some of our favorite dishes for family and friends. The washer/dryer was most appreciated as we had driven quite a long distance! Thank you Amy, for sharing your home with us!"
