Family Fun for All Ages on Upper Turtle Lake
Welcome to Moonlight Mooring on Upper Turtle Lake! With an acre of land, a large open concept chalet style cabin situated on a quiet bay, and convenient location a few miles down the road from the town of Turtle Lake, Moonlight Mooring is the perfect location for a couple’s getaway, a girls or guys weekend, or a family reunion and is seated right in the heart of lake country with ATV/snowmobile trails and hiking/biking trails nearby and a great fishing lake right outside your front door! This property is ideal for families with a play structure and play house for the kids' entertainment. Moonlight Mooring is accessible for older adults or people with disabilities with main floor bedrooms, two steps into the house and a gentle slope down to the lake. Moonlight Mooring can accommodate 2-8+ people with 1.5 baths, two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large living/dining area and an oversize loft. Moonlight Mooring has outstanding flexibility-you can choose how you want to set up your sleeping arrangements depending on your preferences. During your couple’s weekend, watch the moon rise over the lake from your comfortable retreat in the loft after a day of winter or summer sports and a great dinner for two at the casino or one of the local supper clubs. Want a family vacation with lots of kids? No problem-put the kids in the loft while parents and grandparents each enjoy the privacy of their own bedroom. Do you have small children who still need their nap? Put them in the bedroom at the back of the house, near mom and dad where they will sleep peacefully while you can enjoy the lake view and keep an eye on the other kids from the front porch. Two families can easily share the cabin and still have privacy.
Great Room, Kitchen and Dining Room
The great room is spectacular with a soaring ceiling, floor to ceiling windows facing the lake, and a beautiful fieldstone fireplace. Watch the deer meander by, the eagles soar, and listen to the call of the loon while enjoying the sunrise view from the huge wrap- around porch with a cup of coffee in hand. A large, well equipped kitchen allows the cook to be part of the fun in this open area. Enjoy a fire while listening to your family play cribbage or Monopoly on chilly fall evenings. This space is large enough to be set up for days worth of scrapbooking with family and friends. A dining table with the lake view seats the entire family, but who wants to eat indoors during the summer when you can picnic at the lakeside after grilling some mouth-watering steaks. Rainy days are no problem as you can enjoy the outdoors on the covered porch or just hop in the car and go to either Cumberland or Turtle Lake. Moonlight Mooring has internet and TV, but likely you will be having so much fun, you will forget to turn on the electronics!
Upper Turtle Lake has a sandy bottom, and is a large, fully recreational lake where anglers can catch bluegill, large-mouth bass, walleye and northern pike and you can enjoy all water sports. Bring your own boat or rent our pontoon. The yard is shaded with a combination of white and red pine as well as beautiful old growth hard wood trees including maples and oaks which provide spectacular fall color. Spend your afternoons fishing from the dock, napping in the hammock in the shade of the trees or visiting on the porch. Moonlight Mooring is literally just steps away from the lake, down a gentle slope. There is a grassy area at the lake's edge, so you can spread out a blanket and relax near the water . Parents can keep an eye on the kids from the porch while reading a book in serenity. Young children will enjoy hours of fun having their own get away in the replica A-frame playhouse which doubles as an overnight bunkhouse for pre-teens. In the evening, enjoy s’mores around your lakeside fire pit while telling ghost stories or reliving the great day you had on the water. There is a double garage to protect your car from the elements during the winter.
If you love winter sports from ice fishing, to snowshoeing, snowmobiling or skiing, you have come to the right place. There are many hiking, biking, cross country and snowmobile trails throughout the area. Both the Cattail Trail and the Northern Railroad Trail can be accessed nearby. This area is a hunter’s paradise with many wooded and field areas offering abundant game. With 15 regional golf courses just a short drive away, there is a course for every type of duffer! No trip to Wisconsin is complete without going to one of the iconic supper clubs for dinner. If you still have energy after a full day on the lake, hiking or, in the winter, skiing or snowmobiling, nearby Turtle Lake offers a casino for adult entertainment. Neighboring Cumberland, the Island City, has a small town charm and fantastic dining. Nearly every week throughout the summer there are local festivals, dairy feeds, art fairs and music to add to this memorable vacation.
