About The Owner

We live in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago in a Lake community with our 3 children. We love warm weather, the water, and boating!!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2001

Why The Owner chose Rhinelander

We decided to buy our cabin after visiting Norwood Resort. My husband vacationed here

as a child with his family many years ago. They were selling Cabins, and we decided this

was a great place for the family to come back to year after year to make great memories!

What makes this cabin unique

What makes this so great, is that Lake Thompson is an excellent Water Skiing lake!!

The whole family loves to Ski and Wake Board, so this lake has exactly what we love, smooth, calm water. It's great for fishing, too. There is always something fun to do & friendly people !!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely fabulous time. The cabin was darling, kids fished off the dock, we had dinner on the porch, we made s'mores at the fire pit and my kids could not believe how many stars there were! Neighbors were kind. We truly had a wonderful time and plan on it being our place to stay when we visit our family up there!!

Thank you very much for sharing your lake house with us!!!

Many thanks!!

Week of relaxation in Rhinelander

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time at the cottage. It was clean and well-maintained. Air conditioning and updating the electrical inside would be nice additions. Circumstances beyond owner's control: mosquitos, poor fishing and ants were the only down-side to the week.

Wonderful cabin and grounds

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to spend a vacation.!! We have rented this cabin from the Wyldes for 15 years. Every year we enjoy it more. It's a perfect place for all ages. I love sitting on the wonderful screened porch in the morning and then later watching my grandkids enjoy swimming, fishing, and boating. The lake is a perfect size. It's never crowded and never gets too rough. None of us ever want to leave and we always make sure we are booked for the next year. The Wyldes have been wonderful hosts and provide everything we need. We are so grateful we are able to rent year after year.

No what we hoped

  • 1 of 5

Took a vacation to this less than clean vacation property with my two small children, my husband and my parents. I would first like to say this is not small child friendly as the owner informed me it was. Doors not shutting at all due to the door being way to big for the door frame, the door knob in pieces upon our arrival. (This was our children's room so that was an issue to have an unusable door.)

Used popsicle sticks, dental pics laying around on countertops and tables, a refrigerator full of food as well as the cupboards. Our stay was for 7 days and we had no where to put our kitchen items & food. The outlets would spark or the appliance wouldn't even stay plugged in as u were using it. This rental needs work. I spent a lot of my vacation cleaning a property that was listed as professionally cleaned after every rental. I can safely say that does not happen! My mothers bedspread had a disgusting stain on it upon our arrival.

Very disappointed in this rental, we were looking toward to our stay! It looks so cute in the pics. I did speak to the owner after we returned home and I expressed these concerns w her and was told they were the last to stay in the cabin before us and saw nothing wrong with the condition.

Save your money, there are better rentals out there.

Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We rent a cabin on a lake in either Minnesota or Wisconsin every summer, and this was the nicest cabin we've stayed at. The cabin is nicely decorated, and feels very homey. We have young children (7 and 4), and felt perfectly comfortable letting them roam the grounds without keeping an eye on them every second. They loved the swingsets, the beach and fishing off the docks. The cabin is well stocked, and my kids loved watching Disney movies on VHS. (They'd never even seen a tape, lol.) They loved their bunk beds as well. I enjoyed the hiking trails near the property, and my husband caught a 2-foot northern off the dock. We met Gayl and her husband, and they were very friendly and accommodating. Rhinelander was only a five minute drive from the cabin, which was nice in case you needed to run into town for supplies. No one wanted to go home at the end of the week!

Delightful find

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Rhinelander many times but were looking for a new place to stay this year and are so happy we found this cabin. My 10 year old son loved the bunk beds, the dart board, and fishing from the dock - he caught dozens of sunfish and was thrilled as he had never fished before. I loved drinking my morning coffee on the deck while watching the loons, a great blue heron, a mama mallard and her ducklings, and all the other birds in the yard. I also liked that it was a quick drive into town but still felt like a get-away. We had a very relaxing vacation and will be back. My son says he wants to move in so we'll have to go back! And the owner was wonderful and quite helpful as we booked the cabin.
