Deer Ridge is only minutes away from a variety of the Northwood's best hiking and biking trails, including the new paved St Germain Bike Trail with its gentle terrain. Awassa Nature Preserve Trail and Fern Ridge Hiking Trail are close by. Golf, horseback riding, shopping, dining, and much more are available year-round.

St Germain's winter wonderland offers ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing on the nearby trails and snowmobiling. The scenic Bo-Boen snowmobile trail is adjacent to the cabin.

Deer Ridge has a total knotty pine interior, wood fireplace and sleeps up to 5 people. The kitchen is fully equipped (don't forget to bring your own food!). Enjoy nature at its finest - the deer really do walk right past the cabin!

Come join the adventure of the Northwoods. Come prepared to enjoy Deer Ridge.

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

Deer Ridge cottage was everything and more. It was obvious that the owner takes the time to make his guests stay extra special. From comfortable beds to the extra touches in the decor and restaurant recommendations. The unit was spotless and we will booking again for a summer stay.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Deer Ridge and we loved it. The cottage is cozy with a wonderful fireplace. It was very clean as others stated.

There were many deer that came to visit several times a day, and a few were so tame, they would eat right from our hands. (They LOVE apples!!)

The fishing was a bit slow off the dock, but that wasn't the primary point of our vacation.

Tom has been extremely good at answering all questions in a very timely manner, almost always within one hour. I cannot recommend renting from him enough. You won't be disappointed.

Deer Ridge is located just a very short drive from both Eagle River and Minocqua, and St. Germain has everything you need for supplies. If we could give our experience more than 5-stars, we would.

exactly what we were looking and hoping for

  • 5 of 5

Delightfully quaint and cozy! The layout was perfect for 2 couples. Exceptionally clean and nicely equipped. Very quiet with hiking nearby yet close to town. We will certainly return.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent long comfortable mornings and evenings in the cabin the entire week of our stay. We always had a log in the fireplace. Since we were restricted to the use of firelogs we found the duraflame "crackleflame" the most enjoyable. The cabin was very clean and everything was in excellent working order, including the TV which was essential for watching our favorite team play basketball in the NCAA tournament. We did catch some games in St. Germain's pubs and availed ourselves of good beer, food, and socializing with the locals. We were the only one's at the compound during out stay and had a quiet and relaxing getaway from our busy worklives.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed Deer Ridge and would love to have you back in the future. And yes, Duraflame crackle logs are the best!!

Cute, cozy cabin in St. Germain, WI

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cabin great for a couple's winter get away. Pretty wood throughout, clean, comfortable and well appointed. It's in a large group of cabins so it's not secluded but there are many nice trails for hiking, skiing or snowmobiling nearby to help you enjoy the north woods.
