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!!

Everyone is welcome to join us during those boring, nothing to do, months of MARCH AND APRIL for a two night getaway with REDUCED RATES. Sit back and relax in front of the fireplace while working on your crafts, reading books, watching movies, playing games or just talking about the long winter while you make plans for what we hope will be an early spring!

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!!

It was a wonderful house and I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone!

  • 5 of 5

My two kids and I stayed for a last-minute long weekend. They had a blast, wandering around the huge outdoor areas, having campfires at night, running around the house. It was a terrific trip and a wonderful place to stay.

ATV Trip

  • 5 of 5

Hi Patti,

Our stay couldn't have been better! From the moment we walked in the door we knew we choose the right place. ATV trails just outside the door and more than enough parking for trailers, trucks and ATVs. The trails were awesome, and more than we could travel in the 4 days we were there. Riding through the national parks made for some great scenery and stops along way at local bars & eateries. The home is very comfortable and inviting with plenty of space allowing us to spread out throughout the house with out running into each other. With 11 people that's pretty hard to do at most places. For us the down stairs area with the bar, tv and game table was a great place to relax after a long day on the trails. The outdoor space was awesome as well, plenty of seating around the fire, outdoor games were a hit. We really didn't have to bring more than just clothes, just about everything else was provided. Thank you again for your hospitality, we will definitely be back.

Great Getaway House!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed plus more! It was perfect!! We didn’t get to do everything we wanted like the ATVs but that just gives us more reason to go back!! We brought more then we needed. No bug spray needed. No charcoal needed. No wood needed. No lighter fluid needed. HAS EVERYTHING.


enough things to do in the house to stay in all weekend

Very spacious



Lots of games

Great Host


Bad TV service. We didn’t watch much but late nights we wanted to watch a little and it was always going in and out. Kind of annoying to even watch the news since it keeps blinking out.

Bad WIFI and phone service. Everyone who had a iPhone it did not work regardless the service lol. Androids surprisingly did.

The water smelled very bad

Brita cartridge in kitchen sinks needs to be changed

Overall I would stay again for sure!!! I would refer anyone who is trying to get away to this house! We will be back!! Thanks again Patti.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your "five star" review! I'm glad you found everything you needed for your stay and enjoyed your weekend. I was surprised to hear about the Directv problems....I have never had a problem with that unless there could have been satellite issues! The Hughes Net WiFi was recently installed in hopes of gaining better reception than we had with the local provider. I will have someone take a look at any branches that may have gotten in the way of both satellite dishes! It becomes very difficult at times to get the best reception when you're located on 17 acres of woods in a very rural area. The sulfur smell in the well water is a new development....we have installed yet another filtration system in an attempt to rectify this situation that seems to come and go. Thank you for your input and I assure you we're doing our best to provide the best service we can to all our guests. With all that said I'm happy to hear it didn't interfere with your weekend of fun!!

Six longtime friends on a getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Their home is absolutely wonderful!! Tastefully decorated, very cozy and homey feeling. Three roomy floors to accommodate all sizes of groups!! From an abundance of towels, toiletries, paper products to a fantastic washer and dryer they didn’t forget a single amenity. The list goes on and on! Grill equipment and fire pit were nice features. We put on a few hundred miles on the ATV trails. Stopped in at several local pubs along the way. Even patronized Karen’s shop in the village of Mountain and had personalized caps made up for each of us!! Played a lot of cards and games and watched TV on a great screen! We’ve already recommended your home to family and friends! Thank you for making our stay so memorable!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Elaina....I'm so glad you all enjoyed your stay and had a chance to get some ATV riding in. With 450 miles of interconnected trails you shouldn't have run out of places to ride! If you get a chance to come up in the fall you will surely enjoy some beautiful Northwoods fall colors!! It was a pleasure working with you and I hope we'll see all of you back again soon!
