Great 4 bedroom Lake home
Great vacation home with huge deck overlooking Island Lake. Sandy beach area, clear water lake with great fishing in spring, summer and fall. 30 miles to Hayward and 20 miles to Brule. Great Snowmobile and ATV trails accessible from the house. Great ice fishing in the winter. Lots of space but yet very quiet and private. Fire pit down by the lake. Kayak and pontoon rentals for your use. The home is perfect for large families, groups or for 2 families as each level has multiple bedrooms and a full bath. Open concept with vaulted ceilings
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).

Clean, cozy cabin in the Northwoods
Marc's cabin was exactly as promised. There were more than enough sheets and towels, and the place was clean and easy to get into. Marc was communicative and checked in as needed.
One small issue was that there was a big difference in temperature between the floor levels, but this evened out after the first night. The kitchen is also a bit cramped—better for cooking with just a few people as opposed to a large group. Thanks for a great stay!
Perfect for our purposes
We were a group of guys in the area for a weekend of bird hunting. Marc's place was perfect. Comfortable with plenty of room and the weather was warm enough to enjoy the porch. Thanks, Marc.
Great Stay, Helpful and Responsive Owner
We had a family get-together here over the July 4th weekend/holiday, and all enjoyed the stay very much. The group included five adults and three kids (ages ranging from 6 to 17).
The house was clean, spacious, and had four separate bedrooms plus a futon in a downstairs common area that can also be used for sleeping. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms quiet and dark (nice for us streetlights-everywhere city dwellers). There were bathrooms with showers both upstairs and downstairs. The house was really well-stocked - plenty of clean towels, clean bedding, and lots of cooking pots/pans and other utensils. We've stayed at a good number of rental places, and the kitchen here was better provisioned than many, which was really appreciated.
The deck off the common area upstairs was nice, large, and a great place to sit in the (Comfortable) deck chairs and look over the lake. The lakeshore, about 40 yards down a medium-grade hill from the house, was great. A small sandy beach area for the kids, and a sandy-bottom lake with very gradual increase in depth from zero depth to deeper - perfectly safe for young kids. The dock was nice. A canoe was included and kayaks and a pontoon available for a reasonable extra fee. It's really nice to have kayaks (two) and a pontoon to use onsite and really added to the stay.
The fishing was decent, and the fishing right off the dock was as good as anywhere we found after going out to fish on the pontoon. Sunfish in abundance off the dock. Two 12-15" bass caught off the dock as well, and a small northern. More sunfish caught out on the lake, as well as a couple of good-sized crappie. If you are coming only for fishing, not a huge sport-fishing hotspot. But if coming to do some casual fishing with family/kids as part of a lake stay, it's a good place.
The owner was helpful and responsive. He happened to be there when we arrived and had put a good deal of work in to ready the place for the weekend. Friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with before and during the visit.
It is noted I think in the rental info, but there is not a grocery store particularly nearby, so bring groceries if you can. Cell coverage is spotty at best, but the place has good Wi-Fi free of charge.
We'd stay there again without reservation. Really fun place to hang out and spend time with family or friends. Highly recommended!
Clean space with many amenities provided.
