About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Anderson Lake Lodge sits high atop the hill across the road from beautiful Anderson Lake. This property is all about fun, recreation and relaxation for large groups of family and friends to enjoy.

You'll have plenty of room to roam through our 17 acre wooded back yard with walking trails for you and your guests.

With 2,700 sq. ft. this three level spacious lodge sleeps 12 comfortably and has plenty of room for everyone inside and out. We have five bedrooms, ten assorted size beds and two sofas with all the bedding you'll need. You'll also appreciate having a bathroom on each level.

In the heart of the north woods by Mountain, Suring, Lakewood and Townsend you will have plenty of activities to choose from and numerous lakes to explore. Take advantage of local activities including, nearby swimming, fishing, ice fishing, golfing, gift shops, horseback riding, hunting, casinos, biking, ATV trails, snowmobile trails, cross country trails and much more.

We are located in Oconto County which works in conjunction with local ATV clubs to provide over 450 miles of fully interconnected scenic ATV trails for your enjoyment! You will find trail maps in the Lodge or just ask and I will be happy to send one to you with your registration packet. We are proud to be sponsors of the Wisconsin ATV Association (WATVA) and The Dusty Trails ATV Club.

The surrounding area not only boasts endless ATV trails but endless snowmobile trails as well. We support the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC) through our continued sponsorship as well as the local Chute Pond Snowmobile Club.

With DIRECT ACCESS to both the ATV trails AND the snowmobile trails from our property you can just get up and go! No need to trailer your machines and plenty of parking for your vehicles and trailers right on the property. (see additional information below for local ATV and Snowmobile rentals and repair)

Anderson Lake provides great fishing, and water sports. We are located across the road from Anderson Lake but there is NO direct access to the lake from the property if that is the focus of your getaway. You can however venture out in either direction to explore one of the many recreational lakes in the area offering fishing, rafting, swimming, tubing and more.

The public launch to Anderson Lake is just 2 minutes away. Anderson Lake does not have a public beach area. Our guests prefer the much larger nearby 417 acre recreational lake which is just 2 1/2 miles from the property. They offer public boat launch, picnic areas and a great beach area for swimming. (see additional information below for pontoon boat, fishing boat and jet ski rentals with delivery options available)

For those willing to endure the cold the Ice Fishing is also very popular on both of these lakes. You may want to take part in one of the local ice fishing contests!

For cross country ski enthusiasts there are numerous groomed trails nearby. Some local trails would be found in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. It has two dozen groomed Nordic trails totaling 263 miles. The Lakewood Trail (minutes away) offers scenic beauty, challenging climbs and downhills along its 14 mile route. Also the Nicolet Nordic Ski Trail or Nicolet State Trail. You can find more information on cross country ski trails in our area by going to the Wisconsin Trail Guide website.

For hunters, in addition to our 17 acres, there are thousands of acres of State public hunting land nearby.

If you prefer some adventure during our spring and summer months, you can take a day trip to enjoy Whitewater Rafting. Just 20 to 30 miles from the Lodge you will find numerous outfitters who offer whitewater rafting tours on the Peshtigo River and the Wolf River. In addition to rafting, one offers rock climbing, paintball, kayak tours and a sixty foot high ropes course and zip line. Information and directions are posted in the Lodge for your convenience. For all the whitewater rafting available in the area check out the Wisconsin Trail Guide website and select Paddle Trails!

For a unique experience going back in time you might enjoy taking a ride on the Lumberjack Steam train located just 38 miles from the property. During the summer months (June thru August) they offer train runs from the Depot located in Laona to the Lumberjack Camp Museum. They also have special events that include a Cowboy Reenactment where you will take part in a Wild West train robbery. An event not to miss is the Lumberjack Show in July which has been featured on ABC Wide World of Sports, Discovery Channel and several others. This show has been presented for 25 years drawing over a million visitors. Watch lumberjacks compete in running on logs, axe throwing, pole climbing and other nostalgic competition dating back to the 1900s. During the fall enjoy a ride through the fall colors and take in a Saturday Fall Festival Events. For more information on times of operation and event dates, you can visit the Lumberjack Steam Train website or contact them at 715-674-3414.

There are many interesting places to visit and things to do within a short distance from the Lodge. Many of our guests will take a day trip to visit Lambeau Field and the Packer Hall of Fame in Green Bay(45 minutes). Others enjoy a day trip to Door County (1 1/2 hours). The agenda is yours whether you spend time enjoying the amenities of the property or venture out on day trips.

If your objective is to just lay low and enjoy the property, the Lodge lower level will keep our guests entertained with games, TV, bar and fireplace. In the living room on the main floor, relax in front of the fireplace with one of our 500 library books. The Lodge property has over one half mile of walking trails throughout the 17 wooded acres. Enjoy hiking, cross country skiing or maybe try snow shoes, but please no ATV or dirt bikes on our walking trails. We also have a regulation size sand pit volleyball court in the back yard and a variety of outdoor games to enjoy.

We provide HughesNet Satellite WiFi to our guests as well as Directv with all the available movie and music channels.

At the end of the day picture peaceful evenings sitting outdoors around the fire pit reminiscing old memories while making new ones. Anderson Lake Lodge is ideal for families, large and small, or a group of friends who want to enjoy a vacation experience in the north woods. I encourage you to read the reviews from guests just like you who chose Anderson Lake Lodge for their plans with family and friends.

Anderson Lake Lodge and the surrounding area has something for everyone, spring, summer, fall and winter.

Winter months have become popular for groups of women wanting to craft or just to enjoy a fun girls weekend away from it all. Just pack your PJ's, DVDs and a bottle of wine and you're good to go!!

For your peace of mind, Anderson Lake Lodge is licensed and inspected by the State of Wisconsin, Division of Public Health to assure our guests that everything is up to code for your safety and comfort.

We have been welcoming guests for over eight years and our level of commitment and hospitality to our guests has remained our number one priority. We continue to strive to make your stay both comfortable and memorable so gather up your family or friends and we look forward to welcoming you and your guests soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation at the Anderson Lake Lodge. We combined 3 different families into the home and had plenty of room. We had a cwonderful time fishing, swimming, horseback riding, playing volleyball and going to the nearby Lakewood Zoo. We also loved being able to cook at the house and spend some time relaxing making smores over the fire pit and spending time playing cards outside ... until the mosquitoes drove us inside!. The kids especially loved having the loft room to themselves and having their own balcony. They didn't see a problem standing out there watching the fireworks when they were supposed to be sleeping!!. We only had 2 regrets. 1. not having a paring knife in the kitchen... my family got a good laugh watching me peel potatoes with a steak knife, 2. not having more time at the lodge!!. We ran out of time and didn't get to explore the walking trails or play horseshoes. Guess that means we will have to plan a return trip!!. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful home with us. We will definitely recommend it to our friends!!

Large enough for the out of town wedding guests! On the main road for easy access.

  • 4 of 5

Being on the main road was important to us in case of snow. We were so busy with wedding prep that we didn’t get to use the lodge much other than sleeping. We appreciated the Christmas decorations being up! We loved the “Polar Bear” sheets during such cold weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mary for taking the time to submit your review. I'm glad the space worked out for you and your guests. I hope you will consider staying with us again when you have the time to just enjoy and relax without all the baking and prep work you had to do before the wedding!.....and perhaps when it isn't quite as brutally cold outside!!

Christmas wonderland

  • 5 of 5

The house was decorated so beautifully for the holidays, my wife was blown away by all the decor. It made our holiday special and the house was perfect for our family to all come together as one. We had so much fun it was just like my childhood Christmas. Thank you Patti for making our visit so special. We will definitely be staying again.

Fantastic property and very friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Anderson Lake Lodge this fall and everything exceeded our expectations. The property has all the amenities needed for a very comfortable stay in the north woods. Situated on 17 wooded acres this property offers plenty of privacy coupled with amazing views of Anderson Lake. This is a fantastic property for recreation and relaxation. Patti is very friendly and beyond accommodating. We will definitely be repeat customers at Anderson Lake Lodge.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family does a girls weekend every November. We spend the weekend eating, drinking, and playing board games. We try a different rental every year and this was the first time I heard that we should come back to a place we tried. Single beds were great for the younger girls and bigger beds for the older ladies. None of us needed to share a bed. Fireplaces were wonderful. Other places we have gone had them but you weren’t allowed to use them. Patti was great! She accomodatedour group well and was quick to answer any questions we had. GREAT PLACE to stay!

Great place to stay - ATV trail access (Oconto County ATV trails are not marked clearly)

  • 5 of 5

PROS: This home was well taken care of and is exactly like it's described by the Owner.

They have a front load washer and dryer and a dishwasher which are usually unheard of at rental homes.

The beds were fairly comfortable.

The water pressure in the showers was great

They have a water purification attached to the sink faucet in the kitchen (we didn't use it as we had already purchased bottled water in advance)

It's located right next door to Waters Edge Bar - the Friday night Fish Fry was a huge disappointment but the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning was fantastic!

We have a 32 ft long trailer and thanks to the grassy area below on their property, it was easy to park and unload our ATV with plenty of room to spare.

Access to the ATV trails are literally in front of the home however the Oconto Trails themselves were some of the worst we've seen in regards to trail markers and inaccuracy with reference to their trail map.

CONS: The comments below are 100% BASED ON OUR OPINIONS in regards to what WE had planned for our weekend as well as being able to relax after a long day of riding on the trails. Our suggestions on improvements are so minimal that I can still give this place a 5-star rating.

They have Wi-Fi but it doesn't work - we were still able to get a fairly strong signal without it.

The couches in the main living room were so uncomfortable that we were better off sitting on the floor.

Overwhelming amount of dead lady bugs - these were everywhere! I understand that staying in the northwoods, bugs are expected; it would have been nice if someone would have cleaned up the hundreds of dead ones laying around on the balcony and at every entrance inside the door thresholds/track.

(Not related to the Lodge but if you're looking for a place to ride ATV's, you should definitely proceed with caution. The Oconto County ATV trails were without a doubt one of the most frustrating trails to follow and we had a map along with a compass. We will definitely come back to Anderson Lake Lodge for riding snowmobiles with hopes that the sled trails are better marked.)

Owner's Response: First of all I thank you for your five star review including the pros and the cons. I am so sorry about the fact there were dead ladybugs visible. It is that time of year but I assure you our housekeeping staff takes great pride in the appearance of the property and I'm surprised they overlooked it! As for the living room furniture, we are in the process of replacing all of the living room furniture. I realize it has worn down through the years of rentals and we certainly don't want any of our guests to be uncomfortable. We are aware that the WiFi is spotty at best. The north woods has terrible reception. I have tried both satellite and the local cell option we have now and neither could pull a good signal. I have yet to find a solution for this issue and at a loss as to a solution at this point. I'm a little surprised you found the trails to be difficult. I myself do not ride but most of our ATV guests return just for the trail system in the area. We are a sponsor of the map and I will certainly pass on your comments. I truly appreciate your feedback Anna as it is the only way we are able to try and make every guest's stay a five star experience. I assure you I will follow up on your feedback. I do hope we see you again for the winter snowmobile season.
