So close but worlds away...

Be-at-Ease Cabin is a scenic 90 minute drive from Minneapolis/St. Paul and is nestled in the north woods of Wisconsin, directly on the east shore of Bone Lake just 30 steps from the beach. Legend has it that Al Capone, John Dillinger, and other gangsters frequented the area when they wanted to “get away from it all”.

We call our cabin 'Be-at-Ease' because its made for easy living – a wooded, flat lot at lake level, 30 steps from the water, knotty pine interior and north woods decor that bring the outdoors in, 4 comfortable bedrooms and sleeper sofa provide sleeping room for up to 10 guests, spacious family room with entertainment center, game room, 2½ bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer - and ahhhh the lake...

At 1781 acres, Bone Lake is both beautiful and a premiere recreational lake with 12½ miles of shoreline, two islands, and a sand bar that serves as a gathering place.

Be-at-Ease provides views of Bone Lake from almost every room, with spectacular sunsets as it faces west. The flat lot provides easy access to the lake, with a shallow, sandy entrance for children who want to play at water's edge. And for the fishermen - Bone Lake is known as a prime Wisconsin fishery for muskie, largemouth bass, crappie, perch, northern pike, and bluegill.

A dock is in place and awaits your boat – or a pontoon is available for an additional fee which allows the freedom to experience the lake as it's meant to be.

Be-at-Ease is near Wilkins Bar for casual dining, with the towns of Luck, Balsam Lake, Turtle Lake, Frederic, Cumberland, Amery, and St. Croix Falls nearby for additional dining options.

Other area activities include 6 golf courses, St. Croix Casino, hiking/biking trails (including the Gandy Dancer Trail), 5 state parks (Straight Lake Wilderness, Interstate State Park (including the amazing potholes), Wild River, St. Croix Wild River, William O'Brien), Chateau St. Croix Winery, and the list goes on...

At the end of the day, kick-back by the lake in the Adirondack chairs, stoke a fire in the fire pit, and watch the sun fade from view - gold fades to orange, then crimson, then black, and the starry dance begins. And then you hear it – the hum of peace and tranquility...

Come, Be-at-Ease.

About The Owner

We grew up in small town America and ended up in the city due to career/work. With our kids leaving the nest, Be-at-Ease Cabin is our way to reconnect with our rural roots and to gather our family together away from the city hub-bub.

Our hope is that you too will gather your family together and make special memories at Be-at-Ease!

Why The Owner chose Luck

We chose Bone Lake (near the towns of Luck and Balsam Lake) because...

- There's a true 'northwoods' feel.

- The lake is beautiful and we have a great view of it.

- The flat lot allows easy lake access for grandparents and grandkids and makes it seem like you're 'on the water'.

- It's great for family gatherings because it's close to, but not too close to, the Twin Cities.

- The right amount of lake activity, not too much and not too little.

What makes this cabin unique

Bone Lake has a unique 'sunken island' which is a sandbar that's 6 inches underwater. It's a great spot for hanging out - just pull up the boat, grab your lawn chairs and games, and have fun!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time! I came with my BFF and my brother's friend. We caught two large mouth bass. We got a ton of bites but only got two fish! We went tubing and skiing. I got up for my first time! WE played a ton in the playroom. We watched Cheaper 2 which was awesome! We went to the bar to play pool which was so cool! We had the best vacation ever. It was so much fun! Thank you! Sofia, Riley, Jackson, and Will! And our parents! ---

I went tubing to the Xtreme. I made a Foosball Championship – beat my dad a lot in ping-pong, watched some movies, found a Garfield book, read it (it was good), found a little river, damned it and then turned it into a waterfall and had fun with family and friends. - Jackson ---

I wish we could stay longer. It was so much fun. I guess we would need more food to stay longer. It was much fun. I am so glad I get to spend the weekend with the BFF! It was awesome! - Riley ---

What a super cabin!! We had a wonderful time. Your décor is perfect and very comfortable. It was so nice to read from the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the beautiful lake views. Thank you so much. We will be back next year. Lisa

Great Place on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This "cabin" is actually a fully equipped beautiful home. I had a hard time finding a place for 6 adults. This place is perfect. No bunk beds! The entire setting is fantastic. Beautiful home, nice yard, great pontoon on a really nice lake. We enjoyed fishing every day. Even had fresh fish for dinner one night. Enjoyed a campfire every evening. I recommend you head to Bone lake and Be-at-ease!

Amazing Week on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Great property, perfect for small families. The cabin is very clean and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The flat lot and shallow entry to the water were perfect for my 5 and 7 year old boys. We spent most of our time out cruising the lake, relaxing on the sunken islands, and fishing off either the dock or the pontoon. We did rent the owners pontoon which was very neat, clean, and ran great. The fishing was exceptional for largemouth bass and a variety panfish were easily caught off the dock. The game room is a great addition to the cabin and was much appreciated one cold rainy day. I can't comment on much else in regards to entertainment inside the cabin as we spent almost the whole week outdoors! I can honestly say we were all sad to leave on the final day. Hope to be back soon!

The Perfect Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

I secretly don't want to review this property so that it remain the hidden gem that it is! Be-at-Ease was everything my family was hoping for in a lake house rental. Bone Lake is terrific and the cabin was the perfect place to enjoy it from. The owners have kept the home very nice and offer quite a bit to the guests. The children enjoyed the game room and the nice flat yard all the way to the lake. The adults enjoyed a peaceful property with the most amazing sunsets and scenery, and even took some time for an early morning canoe ride. We brought our own pontoon boat, however, I was surprised at how nice the homeowners boat was. We would consider renting theirs next time. The fishing off the dock was great for some smaller fish and even some bass. We will definitely consider this property again if we return to northern Wisconsin.

Perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

Be-at-Ease was perfect! Clean, comfortable and everything we could possibly need. We had 8 of us and had plenty of room. Cabin is decorated incredibly cute and there is an awesome firepit between cabin and lake. The lake is plenty big to explore. We fished and went tubing everyday. Saw tons of wildlife...Eagles, deer, otters, turtles and more. We will definetly be back!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

Be-At-Ease was one of the best places our group has ever vacationed at. The cabin décor along with the incredible view of the lake made for a perfect atmosphere . Extremely quiet and peaceful in the late evening. The campfires were a great way to wind down the day and catch the great sunsets and early stars. We had a few periods of rain and made use of the game room playing ping pong and foosball. That was a very nice perk that other rentals did not have. Great golf course close by in Cumberland as well. We didn't want the trip to end and will definitely be coming back next year to enjoy another awesome vacation.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Be-At-Ease is the perfect mix of rustic charm with upscale comfort! We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. The place was immaculate, and the views of Bone Lake are priceless! We enjoyed having coffee on the dock and watching boats go by during the day. The owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. We truly felt At Ease here!
