About Alan Haubner
We found this totally unique lodge that offers so many of the things that make up a relaxing getaway that after we retired we had to buy it. The property was in danger of being developed and we wanted to keep it in its natural state so it could be enjoyed for years to come.
Alan Haubner purchased this Lodge in 2005
Why Alan Haubner chose Pickerel
We bought into this location because it was on a large lake with many options for outdoors activities. It is located far enough away large cities to be truly a getaway and yet close enough to be 3 to 6 hours from Milwaukee, Minneapolis or Chicago. It is surrounded by Nicolet Forest, the Wolf River and unique Northern towns and points of interest.
What makes this Lodge unique
When staying at the lodge you will see the stars like you have never seen them. Sunsets over the lake from the great room. The call of Eagles and Loons. Magnificent Hemlock trees from 200-300yrs old on the hiking trails. Depending on the time of year thousands of protected Trilium, and other wild flowers, ferns of all sizes, or Maple trees in Autumn colors.

Family Vacation 2019
We were very impressed with the property! Our family ranges in age from 2 to 72. The grass area around the lodge was perfect for our "family olympics". The sandy beach area, volleyball court, picnic tables on the beach, boat, canoes, and paddle boat all were used quite often during our stay. Sitting on the porch at night and stargazing was among the things added to my fondest memories of our stay at the lodge. The grandkids enjoyed fishing from the pier and were not disappointed!! I would recommend the lodge and would love to visit again.

Awesome Lake Lodge for family reunion
Great family gathering. "Wow" from everyone as they walked through front door. Watch the videos, property lives up to advertising. All that we had hoped for and more! Amazing, well cared for property.
Our entire family is raving about our stay. Fantastic facility. Great setting looking over the lake. Rain and cool weather keep us indoors a few days but we had fun playing games and doing puzzles indoors.
My grandkids are begging me to stay there again.
We thoroughly enjoy our stay! Fantastic facility. Everything was first class. A beautiful setting overlooking the lake. Family members did it all....fishing, boating, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming, yard games and more. They even keep busy on the raining days. The grandkids are already lobbying me to come there again.
Perfect winter lodge
Back for our second year at Buena Vista lodge! Everything was perfect! Our group had a great time on the snowmobile trails and sitting by the fire in the great room
Enjoyable for all
Thank you for the wonderful winter experience, it was awesome sledding and fishing even though the weather was cold. The house is beautiful and cannot wait to get back to the relaxation. Thank you again
