Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

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

What a great place to spend some great family time!

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 Lake House 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.

About Kathy and Paul Eikedahl

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.

Kathy and Paul Eikedahl purchased this house in 2007

Why Kathy and Paul Eikedahl chose Minocqua

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paul and Kathy,

We really enjoyed our stay at your lake house. It was perfect for us. I was amazed on how homey it was, very comfortable, had everything we needed, and more. The skiing was fantastic, perfect cold weather and perfect snow. After long days of skiing, it was so nice to come back to your warm house where we played games, had hot chocolate, and enjoyed the ample space. We played family games upstairs around the big dining table, and the kids made plenty of use of the play room downstairs, playing Wii games and dancing. We enjoyed the views of the lake out the back windows. The beds were very cozy, everything so clean. The back porch area really sparked our interest for summer and fall, I bet it is great to sit out there and watch the sun set over the lake.

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Signed,

Jim (dad), Margaret (mom), Kristen (14), and Jenna (10)

and

Jeff (dad), Rita (mom), Dominic (14), and Vincent (11).

The kids are cousins. It is so nice to have the cousins share such special childhood moments, moments and memories that will last a lifetime. Your lake house added to our special moment this year. We all voted this house the best vacation house we have stayed in. That is saying a lot, because we travel as a group throughout the midwest, and have stayed in many houses.

Happy New Year!

Wonderful family getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Shoreview Lake House. The layout of the home was awesome for our family. We have 3 grandchildren under the age of 8 1/2 mos. With 2 bedrooms up, 1 on the main level, and 1 in the finished off basement it made it nice for babies to get rest and we could play games. The owners were wonderful to work with.

The temps were -17 to 10 above. That did not stop our family from shoveling the snow off the ice for us to play hours of hockey. Some of us even snowshoed.

Wonderful memories made, would strongly recommend this place. Thank you Paul & Kathy for opening up your home away from home to us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review, Denise. Your family proves that Lake Shish is fun in any kind of weather! Love the pics you sent of your "boys" playing hockey right in front of the lake house. So glad that you found the layout of our home can provide nap time for babies and game time for adults simultaneously! When we finish our Shoreview Lake House facebook page, I will add your great winter pictures. Thanks and we would love to be your hosts again!

We loved staying at the Shoreview Lake House! We're all cross country skiers, and the house is quite close to Minocqua Winter Park. We hope to stay at Shoreview again next winter!

We look forward to you staying at Shoreview Lake House next winter....or spring: as of today, April 2nd, there is still 3 feet of snow in Minocqua!

Great house. Great location. Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house was just what we wanted. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We made lots of fun memories in the Northwoods. Just one suggestion, the home instructions were not very clear about no bath or hand towels or wash cloths or bath soap. So after a long day of travel from Florida, we had to go back out in the ice and snow to find a place that sold bath towels. Thank goodness Walmart is open 24 hours. So we purchased bath towels and bars of soap for the showers. We just couldn't understand with such a lovely home fully equipped, no bath towels? None the less, we had a great time and hope to visit again! Thank you very much!

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks for your review! Glad that you had a great time at our home in the northwoods and took advantage of the winter experience coming ! We apologize for the towel situation and will make sure that the information is more obvious to our guests. Most of the housekeeping rentals in our area do not supply the towels as most guests are traveling by car. We were not aware that you were coming from Florida and would have made sure that you had all of the towels that you needed!

Great Property, Wonderful Time!

My family had a wonderful time at Paul and Kathy's home. There is so much to do in the area and at the house. We enjoyed all the water toys and the access to the small island for a hike and eagle watching. Thank you!
