Deerskin New Years Adventure

  • 4 of 5

We gathered at the Khota House for a New Year's celebration for two families that included a bunch of hockey players! The initial family that arrived was greeted with easy access the home per the instructions from the owner and found everything to be as advertised! The home sits below the street level and requires a walk down steps from the parking area that is not easy to view from the photos but there is a lower level with a garage and a driveway that we had access to that made loading and unloading pretty easy. The walk to and from the lake is up and down a small hill but the yard is very secluded and quite pretty in the snow. We do not have sledders any longer but young children would enjoy the small hill. We discovered the fire pit and we were able to remove the snow from that and enjoyed some nice winter fires during our stay (the home did not have a supply of firewood but our group has spent some time in the Eagle River area and had a connection who dropped off wood for us on the driveway). Our group is a hockey loving bunch. We first went on the lake and were disappointed that the ice was not in very good shape due to the weather as it froze but with resilient children they were not going to be denied. After exploring the area and moving about 50 yards down the lake the kids discovered ice that was PERFECT for a winters weekend of pond hockey! We came equipped with our own generator and lights so we could enjoy into the evening (there was no power near the water that we found). A great place to ring in the New Year outside! All in all the cabin was wonderful for our group at a very reasonable cost. We met some neighbors that were very nice and left the rink in their care on our departure. I would say thumbs up on the Khota House for winter fun. It certainly appeared that the summer would be wonderful there as well.

Multi-Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was above and beyond our needs. The lake is great for boating. Even though there was no sand beach at the property, a short skip across the lake to the sand bar off the island gave tons of swimming to our little ones in a nice shallow sand bottom. The yard is significantly bigger than the pictures showed. Inside the house, it was renovated as shown. The house was great for multi-family with the layout, as it was like having two houses in one, with bathrooms, bedrooms, and living space on each floor we could get our space from each other when needed. You felt secluded, even though you were only 10 minutes from town. Would stay again.

We arrived in the the Khota House after a 16 hour drive. The house was in a great location to Eagle River and the view of the lake was unbelievable.

This was the best property I have rented in the North Woods. It was fully prepared and extra clean.

We will request this property in the future.

Perfect for Different (Family) Groups

  • 4 of 5

Our initial requirements: 4 bedrooms ( 4 Family groups) meeting for a week's summer vacation from the US and Canada and on the family has a fishing boat. The house was clean, VERY well stocked including items I had not even thought of. Don was wonderful when the gas grill needed a tank refill- he had stopped by and shared fishing tips. For the 10 and 6 year old off the dock and on their uncle's boat was outstanding. Loved the Dining table for eating and family games every evening. Our only issue..Verizon did not like our locations so at various times we had family members either on the dock or on the road- one had business dealings and life goes on. I have recommended and will continue recommend this house to friends who ask.

Wonderful Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

The Kohta House was a wonderful getaway for our family. It was nestled away so you felt secluded yet so conveniently close to town to enjoy all that Eagle River has to offer. The house itself was immaculately kept and fully stocked. The owner was very courteous and extremely helpful. If you are looking for a relaxing and fun stay, book your vacation here!
