Great Quiet House on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Very calm place to stay. Even if you have only the lower level available you still get the privacy. Very nice fishing place, you don't have to go on the lake, you can just fish off the dock's. Tomahawk City it's 10 minutes away where you can get everything for your stay. The house it's not far from the Wind Mill Ice Cream Shop! Delicious ice cream !!

I definitely recommend this house for two families!

Quiet, restful & beautiful. Just what we needed to reset from busy lives.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and well maintained. It was excellent for our get away from the busy lives we live. Wonderful to fish off the dock and watch the boats meander by. Quiet enough to hear many bird calls and see eagles fly, & ducks and geese swim by in groups. Comfortable on the inside of the home with all normal amenities. Plenty of room to accommodate a group. This one will remain on our favorites list.

Clean, spacious, exactly what was promised!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this perfect cabin! Perfect space for the 4 of us- all of the comforts of home. Owners were so helpful and attentive. The place was exactly as described! Had a blast renting a pontoon during the day and cruising along the lake, and sitting by the fire at night. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. I will be back, that is for sure!!!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Eagles Nest to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and had the most amazing time. The rental is so much cuter than the pictures portray. You are in this cozy cabin with nature all around you, and all the privacy and peace that you could ever want! We spent our mornings with a cup of coffee listening to the loons and our evenings by the amazing fire pit! What more could you ask for on an anniversary getaway? The homeowners were there during our stay and they are the nicest people. They suggested a great place to eat fish fry (Bootleggers) and personally showed us some of the nearby snowmobile trails. It was like being in a B&B, but with more privacy! Needless to say we will be coming up this winter to snowmobile, and again next year to relax.

Weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a long weekend, and had a wonderful time! The cabin was clean and we used the awesome fire pit 2 nights...that was a highlight. The beds were comfy, and everything was well maintained and nice. The rental process was easy, and we felt at home there. The grounds were private feeling and well maintained. Due to recent rain, the lakes were high, so the lake channels and such were easy to navigate! Wonderful weekend, great place!

Just Ok

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the lower level of the cabin in mid August.

Pros: Place was very well kept and had very nice decor, owner and family were very nice.

Cons: we got there late and just wanted to go to bed. There were about 6-8 people staying upstairs and you could hear everything. Didnt feel very private. The lake was very weedy and so taking out the row boat seemed like it wouldnt be easy. Fishing off of the dock wasnt an option or it looked like it would get stuck. It could have been because of the time of year as there was lots of rain this season and could have caused overgrowth.
