About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This very private cabin, located on the west side of Potato Lake is a peaceful paradise for families to reunite and enjoy the outdoors. The cabin has aged whispering pine trees and large stately oak trees. It rests close to waters edge on a lake that is 222 acres strong. The view from the front deck reveals fish swimming, loons playing and eagles soaring. The back deck extends itself to a large mowed yard creating recreational activities such as Frisbee and croquet.

600 feet of lakeshore and 20 acres of heavily wooded land gives your family the privacy you will love with no close neighbors. Cruise the lake early in the morning fishing or in the evening with friends on the pontoon!

Excellent fishing with Northern Pike, various pan fish and Bass are available for your evening meal. Swimming is safe for small children and fun for teens and adults with a floating raft within easy reach.

Paddleboat is available for your enjoyment. Pontoon boat is a Harris 200SSL w/60 horse Merc four stroke, available for $100 per day or $500 per week. We shopped for this boat for three years and it is a wonderful addition to the cabin!

A fire pit awaits evening conversations, guitar playing, SMORES and listening to the wind whistle through the trees.

This large lake home contains 4 bedrooms and a loft. A gorgeous two story brick fireplace in the living room sets the mood in the evening and takes the chill off.

Kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, microwave, serving dishes, cooking utensils and silverware.

Play golf at Spooner Golf Club or Butternut, go antiquing in nearby Hayward (20 minutes away) and horseback riding close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to thank you for allowing us into your lake house once again. We had a wonderful, relaxing time as always. The weather was different this year than in the past but was just as enjoyable! (No heat wave and a little bit of rain).

We also rented the pontoon boat for the 1st time and took it out on our 20th wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time!

Again, I'm not sure who was more disappointed to leave, us or Oliver as he spent his time running and swimming.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed a week at this amazing property. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the lake and grounds are. The house was larger than we expected and very well appointed. Absolutely no complaints!

Our kids (6, 8 and 11) had a blast fishing and swimming off the dock. The boat was a fantastic add on and my husband enjoyed early morning fishing every day. My favorite part of the property was the lakefront deck. I did yoga every day on the deck as the sun came up and then enjoyed a book and coffee until the kids woke up.

We saw deer and eagles and heard a variety of birds. Our dog loved roaming the huge expanse of yard and splashing in the water after frogs.

It was truly a wonderful stay. The owners were a pleasure to work with and were very quick to return our deposit. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this vacation property. We stayed here July 31- August 7, 2010. The days were warm, but the nights cooled off nicely. The fishing was good, but majority of the bass were under legal size. It was still fun to catch them though. The house is really nice. It has everything you could possibly need or want. All of the deck space was really nice. Plenty of outside seating for quite a few people, plus there are extra folding chairs on the inside upstairs balcony that can be brought outside. Watching the hummingbirds out of the kitchen window was quite entertaining (our 16 year old son even enjoyed it!). Our experience here was wonderful & we will be back next year. This property is like a little slice of heaven on earth. One more thing-the back yard is BEAUTIFUL! Very well maintained & lots of room or play or just wander. Thanks for a great week!
