Perfect for families, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 14 (8 adults, 6 kids). It was a perfect fit for all of us. The home was clean, had everything we needed. The lake is fantastic! It was very warm, clean, and full of fish for the kids to catch right off the dock. Barb and Dave made themselves available if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend staying here!

The perfect get-away place for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Talk about serenity, beauty and a place to kick back and enjoy each day - this place has it all. The accomadations are perfect - lots of room for everyone to play games, read or sit and chat. Of course, the swimming is great and there are two canoes, paddle boats and a raft to get out on the private lake and soak in the sun. The owners are friendly and helpful. We keep coming back - it is such perfect spot to vacation with our family. (We are a group of 14-16)

Bill and the guys fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

Group of 9-14 every year. We go some place different every year and this was the best trip we have had in 10 years. From the awesome, clean, spacious, well equipped house to the great fishing in the area. Owners were great, everything you could ask for. If your going to the area and have a large group this is the place. Very secluded. We were greeted with some awesome cookies that didn't see the next morning. That would be my only complaint maybe offer an endless cookie plate, haha. just kidding. Thanks again for all your help. Awsome ,awsome

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed early July for a family vacation. What a wonderful time! The cabin was clean and well equipped with everything we could possibly need. Comfortable beds and a nice big table for family dinners. It was quiet and peaceful. The boats and swimming dock was the highlight of our trip! The kids summarized the trip as "Swimming, boating, swimming, boating and swimming"!

We will definitely return.

Thank you Barb and Dave for sharing your little slice of heaven!

The pictures do not do this place justice. How could they? We drove up and where overwhelmed at the setting and view. The lake and area around it is all private! If you are here you have the place to yourselves! We rented the house and cabin for our family get together and housed 16 people no problem....with privacy! The many rooms solve the whole bunkhouse issue that often gets in the way of a great nights sleep. All amenities are more then good....If it rains there is plenty of dining space in the house too. We have stayed in many places through the years and this is the best! Drink coffee in the morn on the deck, walk around the lake on the wide trail, inhale pine scent all day long! Oh, and save money with the great rate!

Great accommodations in Wisconsin!

  • 5 of 5

We got together with a bunch of friends and were thrilled that there was somewhere we could all stay, still have privacy and have a great time together. The house is set up perfectly for a crowd while not being crowded. The kitchen is up to date with all the amenities. The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms modern and spotless. They put in a great bricked patio area with tables and chairs which is perfect for relaxing and chilling out with a beverage. There is beautiful landscaping and trails to explore. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy this place.

Dave and Barb are great to work with do their best to make your stay perfect. Give this place a try, you will not be sorry.
