Luxury Lakefront Retreat on a Quiet Lake

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 6 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Built in 2004 with all the amenities. You'll fall in love with the beauty and serenity of this peaceful, quiet 4-season retreat on a pristine 30 acre lake. From the beautiful screen porch overlooking the lake to the over-sized Jacuzzi tub and sauna, this home has it all. Built-in Bose sound system with speakers indoors and out, 8 foot slate pool table, new furniture, wood burning stove, wired and wireless high speed Internet, hand-peeled log siding, professional landscaping, hickory floors, custom cabinets, and LOTS of character.

The main floor features a master bedroom with a king bed and an attached private bath with over-sized Jacuzzi tub. Also on the main floor are a guest bedroom with queen bed and a half bath. The lower level features a guest bedroom with queen bed and a full bath plus a sauna. A hide a bed couch with comfy queen air mattress rounds out the adult sleeping areas. A large loft with ladder stairs is great for older kids. The loft has a twin bed plus two loose-foam (bean bag-type) queen mattresses.

Fish for bass and sunfish from the dock or take the fishing boat, paddle boat or canoe (included) out on the quiet, scenic lake with no public access. Although the beach is moderately sandy, the lake bottom is somewhat soft sand with sparse weeds, so the best swimming is from the swim platform anchored in 20 ft of water. The water quality is excellent and very clear.

If you're interested in a sandy swimming beach, there's a wonderful family-friendly public beach at Shell Lake, 13 miles (20 minutes) away. For more info, Google 'Shell Lake'.

Just over two hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul, this is cabin country with lots of recreational opportunities including river canoeing, kayaking, tubing, hiking, biking, skiing (all kinds), fishing, etc. There are many lakes in the area, including a large recreational lake with a public landing 1/2 mile away.

Linens and towels are provided and a gas grill is available. Boat, motor, canoe & paddle boat are included with rental.

A note for TV lovers...a DVD player and a 50 inch TV is available.

About The Owner

We have dreamed of owning a cabin in the Spooner area for over 15 years. When we found this place we knew it was special and felt like we had to share it with the world. We hope to retire to this place in the future. Our kids love the outdoors and this cabin allows them to experience the the true beauty of Mother Nature and the wonderful seasons of Wisconsin. We live and work in the Twin Cities so this cabin is our get away from it all place.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Spooner

We choose Spooner because we have family in the area. As an avid fisherman, this area is outstanding for all types of fish...from trout to musky, they are all nearby. In the winter we have access to some incredible snowmobiling trails.

What makes this house unique

Our property is unique in that it offers great swimming and fishing but has all the comforts you would expect in a luxury home. From the Bose stereo system that plays in every room of the home (even outside), to the sauna. I think the best feature is the fact that it is so peaceful and serene. I like that we don't have jet ski's and loud boats to listen to or worry about when using the lake, but we have lakes very nearby to go it if we want to partake in those activities. You can count on a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at what we call our Bass Lake Retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great cabin! Decor is new and beautiful. Very clean and cozy. The porch is perfect for a glass of wine and gazing at the lake view. Kids loved the zip line! Thank you!

Family Vacation 8/17

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cabin. Excellent accommodations. Would definitely come here again. Fun was had by all. Brad's cabin was well supplied and he was very prompt with email correspondence. Place was clean. Lake was very quiet. Well needed rest for our whole family.

Beautiful house but cleanliness was an issue....

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful and our kids had fun with several of the amenities(pool table and basketball hoop). However, the overall cleanliness when we arrived was not to the level we would have expected. Bathrooms had hair in tubs(rust stained tubs), throws rugs in bath were also really dirty. There was no hand soap in either bath or the kitchen(we bought our own and left for next guest). We also had to buy trash bags for kitchen trash can(also disgustingly dirty). There was no water softening here which results in a "camp" feel. That is fine if you are paying "camp rates", but we were not. We bought extra bottled water for toothbrushing, coffee making(coffee maker also required a degree), and cooking. Adding the cleaning fee, while asking us to vacuum, clean the kitchen and remove linens just added insult to injury by the end. We ended up feeling like we left the place better than what we recieved and got charged for it!

Owner's Response: Hi LIsa, I sure wish you would have made those concerns before you rented. There are garbage bags provided with each rental and hand soap. You must have used all of them. There are extras in the linen closet or under the kitchen/bathroom sinks. The water is from a well so it does have a hint of rust to it, which does over time stain the bath tubs a little. We do in fact have a water softener and softened water and filtered water built into the fridge. You are not in the City anymore, this is the woods. The house was left for you spotless, I personally was there to ensure the house was clean. You are expected to leave the cabin as you found it when checking out, except for the laundry or in your case you paid extra to not have to clean the bathrooms. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin and it's amenities. I sure do wish you would have expressed your concerns before or during your stay as I strive to ensure everyone as a peaceful and enjoyable vacation.

Private and Quiet Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week on Little Bass Lake. We spent every day either swimming, kayaking (we brought our own), peddle boating, or fishing. The kids enjoyed just watching the fish swim around the dock and loons visited the lake almost daily. The house fit all our needs (4 adults, 4 kids). We loved the screened in porch and spent most of our time there when inside. The kids enjoyed playing pool and the adults enjoyed the sauna after cool dips in the lake. Brad responded to all my questions promptly as needed. This is a great place if you are looking for something less populated and more private.

Beautiful Cabin on perfect little lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is as wonderful as it looks in the pictures. We spent a lot of time on the lovely screen porch. I chose the rental for the cabin, but we loved the little lake too. It was great for swimming around the swim platform. The boys caught a lot of bluegill off the dock and bass from the little fishing boat. A couple of bass might have been big enough to keep, but we just did catch and release.

Owner responded right away when we had a question.
