Overview

About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

2018 CALENDAR IS OPEN!

Four Sisters Point nestles on a point on Lake Katherine, a clear, quiet, 600-acre lake in the North Woods of Wisconsin. Lake Katherine offers the best in fishing and water sports as well as a quiet serenity unique in the popular Minocqua area.

The cottage commands a special spot on this pristine, clear lake. Sitting atop a small hill on the edge of a peninsula, with the lake wrapping around it, it boasts a lake view from the deck and from EVERY ROOM. (Well, not the bathrooms...)

Four Sisters point has a 40-foot pier in a quiet bay. With 400 feet of private shoreline, a private sandy beach, a second small 'secret beach,' and four acres of private pine woods, there is much to explore. Fishing, water-skiing, swimming, and boating await sports-lovers. Nearby Minocqua has lively shopping, dining and entertainment. For a rainy day, there is a big stone fireplace, a TV with satellite and one with DVD/VCR, a small library and a collection of games, and WIFI.

This is a great place to get away in the spring and fall, as well as summer. The sound of the loons, a cozy fireplace, beautiful views of spring or summer foliage all await you for a romantic getaway, a fishing break, or a secluded retreat. Spring and fall also offer a great value over the higher-priced summer months.

MINIMUM RENTAL PERIOD IS ONE WEEK.

MAXIMUM NUMBER IN PARTY IS 8.

About Mary Cole

My grandfather first purchased this wonderful cabin in 1912. It's a great place to get together with other family members to share time and memories, and to keep old and make new traditions.

Mary Cole purchased this cottage in 1912

Why Mary Cole chose Northeast

Our family has been coming to this place since 1911. While my grandfather was living, we came up early every summer, and my father spent his 'vacation' making sure the place was ready for Granddad's summer there--woodpile full, maintenance done, etc. Hours after supper were spent singing to the tune of our Dad's old ukulele and playing cribbage with Granddad.

What makes this cottage unique

It is easy to spend the whole time here listening to the loons, watching the chipmunks, looking for eagles, swimming, and puttering around. Going into Hazelhurst or Minocqua, both less than 10 minutes away, is fun, and there are also lots of other things to do in the area, but the chance to slow down enough to listen to the wind in the pines, watch the lake sparkle in late afternoon, and admire the sunset until its last rays disappear over the lake is the best.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the guestbook: Each of us absolutely loved arriving here--such a charming and beautiful place! It was fun to scour through all the books and pick out things to read. We enjoyed all the North Woods rustic decor and decorative pieces. Lake Katherine is a favorite lake of ours, and this location is wonderful! A fantastic point! This is the second time we've spent a vacation together in the Northwoods as a family. We couldn't think of a more lovely spot to unwind and spend special moments together. The historic cabin, gorgeous surroundings, and central location made this a vacation to remember. We loved that the cabin was set back in the woods. How special for other families to enjhoy together a pristine spot that's been in the same family for so long! Thanks for a fun week!

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I rented this cabin with friends. The place is quiet, peaceful, rustic and well maintained. During the day we enjoyed canoeing around Lake Katherine, fishing, swimming, reading, hunting for mushrooms, and sitting on the docks watching/listening to bald eagles. In the evenings we would grill, chill and admire spectacular sunsets and listen to the sound of loons as darkness set in. There is a lovely fireplace in the living room to help take the chill out of the air at night and roast marshmallows. We had great wifi reception with no problem using our cell phones. We are planning another visit in the near future. It's starting to feel like a second home. Lots of great memories with more to come.

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has a great location and we love coming here!

The view of the lake is amazing from the deck, kitchen, and many other places in the cabin and all over the property!

The cabin itself has everything you will ever need - both old and new - comfy beds, micowave, tv, internet, a great fireplace, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a fireplace, parking spaces, this place has it!

Great for families or groups, plenty of beds and space.

The owner has done a great job with this property and has great contact - we will be coming back again next year!

A beautiful and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Four Sisters Point several times over the years, and it keeps getting better! The cabin includes all the touches and amenities of a family place, maintained with care, skill, and love. There is plenty of space to accommodate guests in comfort, and yet the cabin still feels cozy. The extensive deck is fabulous! Lake Katherine is quiet and lovely--perfect for swimming, canoeing, fishing, and more. This spot is a great base for taking in all that is offered by the North Woods of Wisconsin.

A fishing getaway...

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for fishing! I spent several weeks here - and the beauty is how easy and relaxing the experiences were. I would get up in the morning, pack water and something to eat, and spend the day rowing to various points, structure and docks to cast to. The numbers of largemouth and smallmouth bass made up for catching any monsters...great exercise as well. With so many lakes in the area - you don't have to worry about much fishing pressure...I am looking forward to seeing the nesting bald eagles as well. Lake Katherine is picture perfect.

Best getaway I've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Four Sisters Point when I got home from Afghanistan and this was not my first time there. Getting to Four Sisters Point every year has become a "given." It simply must happen. The cabin is well-maintained and I always look forward to seeing what Mary has done to make the experience more enjoyable. Booking is seamless. With all the amenities and a view of the lake from every room, you simply can't find a better place to stay. Tranquility abounds, but adventure is to be found for those who seek it! I even caught my limit of bass last year (but I won't tell you where!)! Fresh air, beautiful trees, cozy rooms, spacious deck, and Lake Katherine. I love this place and will return again and again!

Another Wonderful Week At Four Sisters Point

  • 5 of 5

This summer we were fortunate to spend another great week at Lake Katherine. It was our 4th trip to Mary's cabin, although the last time was in 2008 (too long ago). Our family has grown since then, so our son's families split up the week with grandma and grandpa. The weather was great, and we spent a lot of time on the lake, boating and fishing. Also spent a lot of time by the dock, with the kids having a great time in the water. Lots of campfires, both in the firepit by the lake and the firepit on the large, expanded deck. Because the property is so large, at times it seemed that we had the lake to ourselves. There were a couple of trips to Minocqua to enjoy

the tourist things and a "dinner out" for grandma and grandpa at one of the great Northwoods restaurants. We have been at the cabin in June, July, and August and they have all been great stays. We truly enjoy the privacy at Four Sisters Point and how Mary has been able to keep the quaint "Up North" cabin atmosphere while adding the modern things that we enjoy. We're looking forward to future stays.
