There are 2.5 full bathrooms, Two full baths, on the main level and on the upper level and a 2nd half bath on first floor.

With Three Decks; The front deck for small simple relaxation, The rear deck for the lake view, gathering and grilling, It also has a very large private "icehouse" deck along the lake with awesome views of the lake and the Boy Scouts property across the Bay. The Boy Scouts own 10 miles of undeveloped shoreline which makes this one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. The property has its own private dock and campfire pit. It also shares a convenient fish house to clean your fish. Long Lake is known for it fishing and is the 'Walleye Capital of Wisconsin'. It also has an abundant supply of small-mouth bass, large-mouth bass, crappies and sunfish.

There are many restaurants and marinas (providing gas and rental boats) on the lake so that you never have to leave the lake. Off the lake, there are some great restaurants and golfing options. If you like to shop, Stone Lake is only 10 minutes away, Spooner is 20 minutes and Hayward is only 35 minutes away. Hayward always has something going on and its Main Street is loaded with shops, restaurants, its famous candy store and bakery and even a Wine Cave with entertainment. Rice Lake, 30 minutes, provides full services, and large scale stores.

Once you arrive, our property manager, will provide you with a Welcome Book that provides details on the property so you can feel right at home and gives you other local restaurant, shopping and recreational activities. Come join us on one of the most beautiful lakes in the area.

About Mary Tomesh

Life long Wisconsin residents, we appreciate the great outdoors, this Long Lake property and it great lake access, gave us a chance to share with family and friends and has provided us so many wonderful memories.

Mary Lou and Pau Lemens

Mary Tomesh purchased this house in 1999

Why Mary Tomesh chose Sarona

There is so much time and fun that there are weeks we don't find a need to leave the property, Bring enough boats and equipment, and food and refreshments, Check out the pictures on the wall, Its hard to believe this scenic tree filled resort was once a Farm, the house? the barn in the 1940's the Silo foundation is under the first floor bathrooms. And once a thriving J&J Restaurant and resort of 5 acres, succumbed to changing times. Now it gives us and you an opportunity to enjoy the good life.

What makes this house unique

Since we live in Kenosha, WI we do have a local relative take care of day to day needs. Please contact Mary Tomesh. (Local manager)

We really enjoy the spaciousness of the house for our family to enjoy time together and still have some space. This was our 7th year and it's good to have a known destination and expectation. Every year new improvements enhance our stay and we thank you for them.

Great fishing property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at lemons lodge. The property managers were very nice and super easy to work with. The pictures don't do any justice. This property is perfect for large groups and families with kids. Every thing is their for you from kitchenware to cable t.v. Plenty of room. We came up for a guy's ice fishing trip and had a blast. Fishing wasn't so good at the time we were their but that didn't bother us. We will be back. Best value I've found in the area. We were so thankful to enjoy this property.

So nice we came back another year...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Lemons Lodge. We had 2 families (7 kids) and everyone had a great time with plenty of space. The house is older but very well kept. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for the week and the 2nd frig really came in handy. Also, love the washer & dryer! New this year was a large deck off the back where we spent many meals. Long lake is absolutley beautiful. We spent days fishing & the kids had a blast. If you have a boat, make sure to bring it. The launch is just down the road and easy to use. The bait store was about 5 minutes away and came in handy many times. Drive into Hayward & make sure to visit West's ice cream shop and Tremblay's sweets...well worth the 30 min drive!!! Mary, the property manager, was very accomodating and friendly.

Long Lake, has clear water, great fishing and recreational boating, it has about 10 miles of tree lined shoreline owned by the Boy Scouts of America. Lemens Lodge overlooks the Boy Scouts property across the bay, so you have the beauty of tall pines and undeveloped shoreline. The wildlife and scenery is outstanding.
