About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
You can take the boat to town (Manitowish Waters), poke around the shops and get an ice cream cone. The Discovery Center has a wide range of fun and educational activities.
In the evenings, enjoy a drink on the front porch overlooking the lake. Talk with the family as you prepare dinner Later, gather round a firepit blaze, select one of the many books, take advantage of our wireless computer connection or watch television in front of the fireplace. Or, if you have any energy left, you can take the pontoon boat to the ski show or the Sunday concerts in the park.
Built by Native Americans around 1930, my grandmother purchased the house in 1937. Since then we have kept the ambiance while adding modern amenities such as electricity and running water.
Enjoy our Vilas County Up North home as my family has for over 70 years.

strawberry & raspberry & blueberry picking in season,
mushrooming (knowledge is on you)
Year Purchased: 1934
About the owner: I have enjoyed more than 68 summers on Rest Lake. From the woods, I gather mushrooms, blueberries, and raspberries (don't like blackberry picking because of the thorns) are among my favorite activities. Some of my favorite memories are of canoeing and camping on the local rivers - first with my parents and later with my own children.
Why the Owner Chose Manitowish Waters, WI, USA:
My grandmother purchased the property in 1934. It is has been the center of our family vacation life ever since.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is only a short walk to the library where you can find an extensive collection of vacation reading or order a particular book. Next to the library is the Community Center host of weekly outdoor fairs and community dinners. There are tennis course and children playgrounds.
