Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 2-10

Great Fishing, Swimming, & Relaxing: Enjoy spectacular sunrises over Big Chetac Lake and then relax with a cold one to enjoy the sunset over a small private lake. The deck has a built in fire pit and gazebo to enjoy outdoor living to the fullest and the view can't be beat! The master bedroom has its own private deck with views of both lakes. The heavily wooded lot is 2.9 acres and there is tons of room to explore in the adjacent county land. Fish Big Chetac or enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the small lake behind the house. Great fishing on Big Chetac over 2000 acres to explore!

Interior Remodel for the Up North Feeling: The home was completely remodeled in 2008 with pine tongue and groove siding in the living room and one of the bedrooms. There is also new carpet and hard wood floors throughout house. The kitchen has been remodeled and has a dishwasher and a extra large farm sink. The bathrooms have also been updated with ceramic tile throughout.The basement was completed in 2012 adding a 3rd bathroom, log futon, gas stove fireplace, and dish network on large tv.

Big Chetec is a great lake for recreation and fishing with over 2,000 acres of 'boatable' water to explore. There are multiple places on the lake to rent fishing boats or pontoons so that you can enjoy the sand bar on the lake as well as a couple of islands to explore and potentially camp on. The property has 700ft of wooded lake shore with a dock for your boat and for swimming. You will need to cross the road to get to the Big Chetec Lake front but it will be worth it!

This is a great place to come any time of year with nearby attractions in Birchwood, Hayward, Spooner, and Rice Lake. The cabin is surrounded by many ATV/Snowmobile trails to enjoy and you will love exploring the wooded lot.

If you prefer to stay at home you can enjoy a ping pong table and air hockey in the basement. You can also choose to snuggle up with a good book on either of the decks of in the cozy living room.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice big private house, plenty of room. Access to two lakes: the first, Big Lake Chetac, the second, a small private lake. Both require a bit of a walk down a steep hill -- the private lake is down a narrow dirt nature trail and is fairly steep -- but both are absolutely worth it, as they are beautiful. Canoes are available on both lakes, kayaks on Lake Chetac. No problems at all -- owner was very responsive to my emails. We're already looking forward to coming back with our kids and some friends in the future! Recommended!

This cabin is comfortable and spacious enough however, a few things came up that was disappointing.

  • 2 of 5

Pros:

· Secluded area/quiet. Nice location and a close drive to town. AC works well.

· Nice foosball and ping pong table. Large deck area with fire pit and comfortable chairs outside. Gorgeous back private lake with fishing boat for use. Canoes and Kayaks provided for use. Comfortable beds with extra linens, sheets, etc. Comfortable sofas and futon/sleepers. Open kitchen– kitchen is clean, well-lighted and all amenities worked well. Clean fridge, stove, cabinets, etc. Large kitchen table. Washer and dryer was a plus. Cabin iniside is clean. Maintenance contact is easy to get a hold of and is responsive.

Cons:

· Two members of our group got bed bug bites/rashes during our stay. They slept in the same bedroom/bed. We notified the owner of this after our visit when our family members went to urgent care to get their rashes looked at. Wish the owner would've offered some reimbursement but did not. Unfortunate.

· There are three sliding doors; none of them locks, so we did not feel completely secure. Two of the sliding doors goes directly outside. The sliding doors are secured at the bottom by propping a wood piece in it so that you cannot slide it.

· Main level and lower level are really two separate living areas. You have to go through lower level and two flights of small stairs to get to the main level. It is difficult especially when you are bringing food and items into the cabin.

· Limited toiletry, hand soap, trash bags, and paper towels are provided – bring your own stuff as well, especially if you have a large group. We had 11 people during our four-night rental.

· The garbage dumpster was full upon arrival –the dumpster gets cleaned out twice a month. If the dumpster is full, you leave trash on the side of the dumpster.

Laundry detergent is not provided. Well water has a strong pungent iron smell – bring water to cook with, if this will bother you.

•Not a lot of outside/space area for kids to play around – apart from deck area.

•Deck area was full of debris upon our arrival – many spider webs everywhere which we cleaned out. Many twigs, leaves and branches, which we cleared out.

•There was a bee’s nest behind the grill, which we were unaware, and one of our family members got stung. Grill outside seems greasy and dirty so we used it once only. The gazebo was not clean, so we did not get to enjoy it and/or use it during our stay. Some areas of the carpet in the lower level of the cabin was drenched with water when we arrived.

Exactly as stated online. The back lake really needs to be seen. The house was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The back lake is a hidden jewel. We had a lot of fun catching fish in L Chetac. Yes, we would rent from Jon again. He was very good to work with.

Thank you Jon
