Property description

Good news! We are now offering a Book It Now option. Although there is a fee charged by VRBO to use this method of booking, many guests prefer the convenience. BUT, if you prefer mailing a check directly to our home address, that option just requires a stamp! Please contact us if you have questions about which method would be best for you.

Shoreview is on a quiet bay on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Shishebogama, just 7 miles west of charming Minocqua Wisconsin.

Guests love the beautiful tile floors, wood ceilings, stainless steel appliances, hickory cabinets and abundant windows in the Lakehouse. We have a huge screened porch with comfortable seating, table and chairs for outside dining and a large wood deck overlooking the lake.

Each of the 3 levels in the lakehouse offer beautiful lake views! The main level has a living and dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. The upper level has 2 huge bedrooms, each with a queen bed and daybed and a shared bathroom. The lower level has a recreation room, bedroom and bathroom!


Summertime on Lake Shish is wonderful! We have 3 docks, a swimming raft and a private boat launch for your fishing or ski boat. We also provide a rowboat, 2 kayaks and a small canoe for those wanting a little more exercise! A state-owned island, with hiking trails, can be seen from the lakehouse! You are sure to see some of the Northwoods wildlife. These include bald eagles, loons, beaver, blue herons and much more.

Shoreview is great in the fall and winter, too! The beautiful colors of autumn reflect in our serene lake! A brisk hike or bike ride on the Minocqua's Bearskin trail is a memorable experience. We are on a snowmobile trail and just minutes from Winter Park, with cross country skiing at it's best! Or just clamp on snowshoes and cross a frozen Lake Shish!

Summer rentals run from Saturday to Saturday and we have loyal guests returning each year. Occasionally we have an opening but the best chance of securing a week during the summer is the first part of June and last week of August.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello, We love to take vacations!! And we understand how important it is to spend your precious time and money in a comfortable and affordable home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Minocqua, WI, USA:
Our family has vacationed in the Northwoods of Minocqua since our children were small. Our most memorable moments have been hiking, biking, boating, star-gazing, card-playing, etc. etc. with our children, and their aunts, uncles and cousins on a lake near Minocqua. We purchased 3 rustic cottages in 1990, replacing 2 of them in 2007 with our wonderful lake house.....check the photos! Now our grandchildren are enjoying beautiful Lake Shish with us!
