About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms (3 Queen Log Beds) + 1 Futon, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We are a fully licensed Hotel-Tourist Rooming House -with the Barron County DHHS Public Health Services Dept.
ID Number: 124SYOG-7QRN2L

Our water is tested every May, to make sure it is 100% safe and it tastes GREAT!
Inspections are done yearly, as we want you to know that you are getting a quality home to vacation at. We have been providing a great place for our guests to relax at since 1999. If you can find an open date, we'd love to have you at-the-lake!

We have WiFi and Direct TV in the lake home...so you can take care of your business and your social life too!


There is no place better than to come to NW WI and enjoy the peace and serenity of Wisconsin's Northwoods in this updated, comfortable home. Each room has a beautiful view of Poskin Lake. The home has a nice level lot and a large private dock. You can rent the pontoon boat/kayaks/paddle boat for one small fee if you would like to enjoy the entire lake. There are French Doors that lead to a large deck, with chairs to relax in. There is a L-shaped dock with a sturdy ladder, along with a swim raft that also has a sturdy ladder. At night, view the stars and enjoy some S'mores and marshmallows around the campfire. Wood is included as an extra bonus!

Our home has two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Bedroom One has a queen-size log bed. Bedroom Two has a brand new queen-size log bed and Tempur-Pedic mattress. On the main floor of the home, you will enjoy a nice large eating area, and a well-equipped kitchen. Our main floor also includes a bedroom with a queen-sized log bed, a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub, a living area with a futon and a chair, and a large living room with a couch, love-seat, over-sized chair, and windows galore! You can watch the sunset from this room, the deck or the dock!

Poskin Lake is located in northwest Wisconsin, 10 miles from Turtle Lake, 10 miles from Cumberland, and 14 miles from Rice Lake. The lake is 150 acres, and is excellent for fishing, as there is a 'no-wake law' from 6:00 PM-10:00 AM everyday. If you want to relax and enjoy God's beauty, this is the place to come to!

About the owner: We have been sharing the lake home we were blessed with, as we do not have the time to enjoy it right now! We have had many of the same families come back year after year for the past decade! We enjoy telling about you about the local attractions, and having you relax and have the best vacation possible! Come stay and play....at our Northwoods Retreat!

Why the Owner Chose Almena, Wisconsin, United States of America:
The lake home you can vacation at has a nice level lot, with a view of the lake from every window! The sunsets are incredible, and it is a very quiet and peaceful lake...come and enjoy this beautiful property!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a 'no-wake law' in effect from 6 PM until 10 AM, making this the perfect lake for people who like a lot of action during the day, yet who like to fish and enjoy the quiet too!
