About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Welcome to our four bedroom home on Lake Nancy in Minong, Wisconsin. Lake Nancy is a gorgeous 772 acre lake well known for its clean, clear water and great fishing. The home is elevated about 25' above a fantastic 100' sand beach. Our 400 foot private wooded drive winds through oak, birch, and pine trees and ends just a short distance from the back door of our 2,250 square foot 4 season 'home away from home'.

The lake offers outstanding swimming! The slope on both the beach and out into the water is VERY gradual with no drop off. This makes it great for kids, water games, and lounging around on a hot summer day. Enjoy your morning coffee out on the bench at the end of the 60' long dock.

We also have an 18' Bayliner 180 open bow boat with a 90HP outboard motor available for rent (boat is extra and not included in weekly rental). This boat is great for water skiing and tubing, and is parked on its lift next to the dock, so all you have to do is lower it into the water, start it up, and take off!

The beach has a fire pit, which is great for brats, smore's, staring into after dark... whatever you like. The night sky is so dark you can see the Milky Way - it's a good thing we put in motion sensing lights to help you find your way back inside!

Lake Nancy is a clean, clear lake offering large mouth bass, walleye, northern, muskie, crappie and pan fish. Two kayaks and a rowboat are provided for fishing or exploring, and the lake has a public ramp for launching your trailered boat. 100' SW of the end of the dock is a crappie hot-spot - be sure to check it out. Blue gills can be caught with just about anything from the dock - a great way to introduce kids to fishing!

The layout of the home is that it is built into the side of the hill, so you walk in from the driveway on the upper level. The home has 4 bedrooms with one queen bed, 1 double bed, 1 bunk bed, and one twin bed. There is also one double sized futon, and two cots. (Both the futon and cots are actually quite comfortable.)

On the upper level are the kitchen, dining area, living room, 2 bedrooms, and a full bath with tub. There is also a 3 season porch, and perhaps best of all is a 40' elevated deck overlooking the lake and giving views of spectacular sun sets.

Downstairs is the family room, 2 bedrooms, a 3/4 bath (shower), and the laundry area, which also contains the children's size air hockey/pool table (it flips over) and dart board.

The kitchen is fully furnished (we like to cook) and is part of a large open area that includes the dining and living areas. The over and stove are gas, and there is of course a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and coffee maker. We also have two barbecue grills - one charcoal, and one gas. Like I said, we like to cook!

There are ceiling fans which are perfect most of the time for keeping things natural, but cool.

We are only 2 miles from Black Bear Golf course, an 18 hole, par 72, public course. There are many other golf courses within easy driving distance. You may also enjoy hiking or canoeing/tubing on 2 nearby rivers (Totagatic and Namekagon - the latter being an excellent trout river). Day trips to Hayward, Spooner, Duluth and the Apostle Islands are common diversions.

The birding is outstanding, with loons and bald eagles guaranteed. You're sure to see deer and if you're a birder we have kingfishers, whippoorwills, various warblers, vireos, and flycatchers, pileated and red bellied woodpeckers, and occasionally a scarlet tanager and eastern towhee may be seen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: There are five of us - Mom, Dad, 12 year old boy, 10 year old girl, and Grandma!

Why the Owner Chose Minong, WI, USA:
It's only two hours from our home in the Twin Cities. We love the fact that it is so peaceful and quiet - we're definitely in the country. But we also like having all the amenities we need only 7 miles away in the town of Minong.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the gorgeous sand beach where our children can play. The lake is large and very clean. We own, and will rent to you, our 18' open bow Bayliner 180 with a 90HP motor. Great for tubing, water skiing, and touring around the large and intricate lake - there are over 10 miles of shoreline! We are on the east side of the lake, looking west out across the lake. This lets us enjoy beautiful sunsets and view the weather move toward us (it usually moves generally west to east in this latitutde). When we're lucky we get a great view of an approaching thunderstorm, complete with towering cumulonimubus clouds blocking out the sun, lightning advancing toward us (it's actually safer this way - we're never surprised because we can see it so far off), and the rain marching swiftly from the far side of the lake across to our side. Great stuff!
