Property description

We'll be happy to answer any questions - please, call us at 1-715-547-3860. We strongly suggest that you call us before making final arrangements so we can FULLY inform you about everything you need to know about our place. IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BRINGING YOUR OWN BOAT, you need to contact us prior to making a reservation so we can determine if we have a suitable boat-lift for your boat. We rent boat-lifts (to make sure your boat is safe) for $65/week or $25 for the first day and $10 for the following day(s) - whichever is less.
There is WiFi access available in our office for checking e-mail.
The cottage is located on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert Lake in the heart of Wisconsin's Northwoods lake country and the Nicolet National Forest. We are just a few miles north of Eagle River, WI. We are open all year round and offer you a knotty-pine interior cottage that will suit all your lodging and accommodation needs, all surrounded by beautiful and fragrant old pine trees and majestic oaks. There is an abundance of wildlife here, on the lake and in the area. Make sure you bring a pair of binoculars with you - there are a lot of eagle nests all around the lake and you can see and hear eagles and loons every day. You will also see ducks, swans, and otters here. Deer very often visit the area.

We are located on the south shore of Lac Vieux Desert, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River.

Our beautiful lake is famous of its record musky (a World Record Musky was caught here), walleye, northern pike, perch, small mouth and large mouth bass and panfish fishing, and is one of the largest in the state with 4300 acres and 19 miles of fantastic shoreline and 4 islands. The cottage (located 70 yards from the lake's shore) has 250' lake frontage and we have two piers.

You will be very happy with our spacious, modern, super clean, housekeeping 2 bedroom cottage which can accommodate up to 6 guests on 1 double bed, 2 twin beds and a queen size pull-out sofa. Quotes you receive through this site are based on a standard rate for up to 4 guests in the cottage. There is an extra fee required for the 5th and 6th person in the cottage: $60 per week per person, or $25 per night - whichever is less. The cottage is completely furnished including bed linens. A big, modern kitchen has a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all necessary pots, pans, plates and utensils. There is also a DVD player and a TV set in the cottage (there is no TV reception at our location). You can bring your PET for a vacation here: a weekly rate is $75 per pet; a daily rate is $35 for the first night and $10 for the following night(s).

For your enjoyment, outside the cottage you will find charcoal grill, fire pit (for weekly rentals we provide an armful of firewood for free), and picnic table. For weekly rentals a 14-foot aluminum, fishing boat with oars is also included to fish the lake or just to relax on the water. We also rent a boat with a motor for $199/week + gas used, or $60/day + gas used. After a successful fishing day you can use our fish-cleaning house to clean your fish and then freeze the fish (if you want) in a big freezer there.

Come stay with us any time of the year and enjoy many wonderful vacation activities in spring and summer such as swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, berry picking, golfing, horse back riding, bicycling, ATV riding, scenic driving and wildlife watching. There is plenty to do in fall and winter, too. You can enjoy watching the northern forests burst into brilliant fall colors as well as hunting, ice fishing, snowmobiling or cross country skiing. The cottage is located on the snowmobile trail and you have access to 600 miles of Vilas County snowmobiling trails in the Nicolet National Forest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We bought the property in 2007 because we were coming for vacation to Lac Vieux Desert lake for the last 20 years and we're in love with the Northwoods. We appreciate the beauty of this area and we want our guests to enjoy themselves so we do our best to make their stay comfortable and memorable. Steven & Katherine

Why the Owner Chose Phelps, WI, USA:
Lac Vieux Desert lake (4300 acres) is the best all year round fishing lake in Northern Wisconsin. It is located in the heart of 650,000 acres of Nicolet National Forest and very close (the north shore of the lake) to 2.2 million acres of Ottawa National Forest. This lake offers a lot of fishing excitement (musky, walleye, northern, crappie, bluegill, perch, bass) as well as wonderful relaxation like no other place in the Northwoods.
