Fantastic lakefront dog and family-friendly home on the 1600-acre Minong Flowage that can sleep 8 (6 in beds). Beautiful home with attention to every detail. Open floor plan with kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances all flowing into the dining/living area with stacked stone gas fireplace, soaring cedar ceiling, and windows to the lake. Three outdoor areas including a spacious deck, lower level patio, and large fire pit with gorgeous pavers. 263 feet of lakefront footage on a private, secluded bay.
The cabin has 3 bedrooms, plus a queen futon. The main floor master bedroom has a king bed. The lower-level walkout provides 2 additional bedrooms: 1 with a queen bed and 1 with 2 single beds. There are two bathrooms; one on the main level and one on the lower level. Please note that the main level bathroom has a tub with a hand-held nozzle; it is not a full shower. The lower level has a walk-in shower.
You will be surrounded by towering pines for that "Up North" feel, enjoying the waterside view from the deck, lower patio, or fire pit. Steps to the water, with level elevation, enjoy swimming, water sports, fishing or just relaxing. Access miles of ATV trails nearby, golf courses, and 3 restaurant/bars located directly on the lake (and 1 more on Cranberry Lake, which is connected to the Minong Flowage). Enjoy hiking or canoeing on the Totagatic and Namekagon rivers. Winter activities include ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling on miles of groomed trails.
About the Minong Flowage:
The water in the Minong Flowage is from the Totagatic River and is clean, but the minerals from the River tint the water slightly brown. At its deepest point, the lake is 21 feet. It is a popular fishing lake, and common fish include walleye, northern pike, largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and yellow perch.
We are on a bay, and the area off the dock is shallow but swimmable for several feet (the bottom turns from sand to mud, so bring water shoes if you want to swim out farther!). The best months to swim are June and July; in August, the bay gets green. There is a nice public beach 4 miles away at Totogatic Park.
A Note About Dogs:
We named our cabin the Lazy Dog Lodge for a reason: we LOVE dogs and we want our guests to enjoy their vacation with the whole family, including the furry members :-) That being said, please be mindful of whether our cabin is appropriate for your dog(s).
We may not be the vacation rental for you if your dog(s):
*Consider barking to be a favorite pastime;
*Chew things other than dog toys;
*Like to visit the neighbors unsupervised (we do not have a fenced-in yard), and/or;
*Use the house as a bathroom.
We provide dog beds, bowls, treats, tie-outs, poop bags, and crates (one large, up to 65lbs, and one small, up to 25lbs). We ask that your dogs be supervised when at the cabin and crated when you are not. Please feel free to ask us any questions about bringing your dogs!
A Note About Occupancy:
The maximum occupancy at the cabin is 8 people. There are NO exceptions to this. We limit the number of people for a reason: our systems (septic, hot water) cannot accommodate large numbers of people. Please note that if you have more than 8 people you will be charged $100 per extra person, per day OR you will be asked to leave without a refund for the remaining days. Unfortunately we have had multiple guests who have abused this rule and it has caused problems for our systems. If we have reason to suspect there are more than 8 people, our caretaker has the right to stop by and check in. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
