  • Wonderful!!

    "We stayed at this log home for a family reunion. The accommodations were wonderful. Plenty of space for five couples. The lake was a great place for canoeing and kayaking, and the whole area is wonderful for bicycling. The caretakers for this home live nearby, and were very responsive to our questions. I've stayed at a number VRBO's, and this one was really one of the best. Thanks!"

  • Madeline Island Winter Stay

    "I took my husband on a surprise birthday getaway after a stressful fall. I was nervous about going to the island because it was off season and I was not sure there would be much for us to do, BUT it turned out to be an excellent way to relax and spend some quality time together. The condo was clean and heated when we arrived. We ate at The Beach Club, Maggies, and the Big Water Coffee shop has amazing cold press! We also went to the Candy SHoppe and got some of their wine bread. We were lucky that the Saturday during out stay was a free ferry ride day so we went to the shops and there were some Christmas hand made shops in the pavilion. It was a great way to get away which is what we were wanting!"

  • Wonderful Family Trip

    "We loved the Loghome on a semi-private island. We had 13 people and we fit in the 5 bedroom home just fine. There is a large master bedroom with bath upstairs with a small loft space outside it. Two nice size bedrooms on the main floor w bath and two large bedrooms in the finished basement w bath. Also plenty of room in the living room and the basement to set up a air mattress etc.. There is a lot to do at the lake home, there is swimming, boating, canoeing, hiking, volleyball / badmintton court, ping pong table and a closet full of board games. The home has a great deck and huge screened in porch, you feel like you are outside without the bugs. There is a large firepit with all the wood you could want to burn, right off the deck. The lake is a short walk down a path and is very shallow and clean, great swimming. The swimming beach is fine sand with zero entry, good for little ones, and located across from the beach, about 200 yards is a sand bar. We had a great time swimming out to the sandbar and hanging out for the day with little kids and everyone, about 3' deep with smooth sand bottom. Things to know about the cabin - the cabin is NOT close to a real grocery / liquor store, so plan on stopping before you get there or bring the food/booze with you - Sponner is about a 25minute drive away with a real grocery. Bilik's Amusement Center was a fun afternoon of go-karting and minigolf, near Spooner. I can't recommend the place more, really great house and it is isolated enough to feel as you are alone in the woods. If you are looking for a place to just hang out and watch the world go by this is the relaxing retreat for you. We loved it and will be back someday."
