A Northwoods Classic is back, and better than ever!

Off the rental market for three seasons, the owners have decided to refresh a favorite. Renters are sure to enjoy the all new décor, including mattresses and bedding, throughout this ultra comfy lake home.

Musky Lodge is a private, four-season vacation home located in the heart of the beautiful northwoods of Wisconsin. Situated on the shores of Muskellunge Lake, the cabin is conveniently located just a couple miles off of Hwy 51 and three miles north of Tomahawk (note: location is not correct on this site - home is on the shores of Muskellunge Lake - please contact us for exact location).


Main Level- Living Area: Large & comfortable with vaulted, beamed ceilings, fieldstone fireplace, new leather furniture, new 45" LCD smart TV with cable, DVD player, stereo, Bose blue tooth speaker, I-pod docking station and patio doors to the wrap-around deck with fantastic lake views.

Kitchen/Dining: Well equipped kitchen including new gas range and Kohler sink as well as dishwasher. Fully equipped with dishes, cookware, utensils, etc. Breakfast bar with two stools and large dining table for family gatherings...just bring your food and enjoy.

Master bedroom: Wake-up to sunrises over the lake in the new king bed with high end mattress.. Beautiful brand new master bath with huge walk-in glass block shower. Also, there is convenient access to the deck from this room.

Guest Bedroom: This room features a queen bed and twin bed, both brand new mattresses and bedding.

Guest Bath: Clean and modern with high ceilings and walk-in shower.

Deck: Very large and comfortable wrap-around deck with beautiful lake views. Patio furniture and new Weber grill for your cookouts. It doesn't get any better than relaxing on the deck with a morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail while taking in the fresh air and scenery.

Walk-out Lower Level:

Comfortable space with futon and walk out to lower patio, guest bedroom with queen log bed and half bath.

Laundry Room: Fully equipped for your convenience.

The Lake:

Muskellunge Lake is a 210-acre full recreation lake with a public boat landing. The clear water reaches a maximum depth of 28' and the fishermen will enjoy a mixed bag. Of course, the lake got its name from the truly large muskies that swim here so spend some time throwing for a trophy (replica mounts encouraged).

The Shoreline:

All new landscaping with awesome fire pit patio built into the hillside. New stone stairway with rail leading to your private 100 feet of sandy beach frontage on Muskellunge Lake. Perfect for kids with a very gradual drop-off; it is 4-feet deep at the end of the 40' pier with large sitting area to enjoy the afternoon sun. A diving raft also offers lots of summer fun. A 14' rowboat with 10hp motor is included in your rental.

The Location:

Muskellunge Lake is conveniently located less than 10 minutes off of HWY 51 from the Hwy 8 west exit, about 3 miles north of the town of Tomahawk. Tomahawk is a quaint northwoods town with everything from excellent grocery stores, bait shops, boat rentals, a sporty golf course, an old-fashioned 'dog & suds' drive-in restaurant and great supper clubs. The cabin is located on a very quiet dead-end road.

About Lewis Barbera

We reside in the Milwaukee area but love Wisconsin's northwoods. We want our guests to enjoy everything about the home like we do.

Lewis Barbera purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lewis Barbera chose Tomahawk

Great location, definitely in the northwoods but very easy drive from SE Wisconsin. Very comfortable home that we enjoy continually updating with great lake views through awesome pines. The lake is clean and quiet, even on the busiest summer weekends.

House is clean and fully loaded with dishes and linens as well as small amenities. Lake is clear water with abundant panfish, good bass fishing. Fishing boat included is a real plus. Sandy beach with gradual slope makes it easy for small children to play in the water. Fire pit is terrific for evening lie swapping and provided firewood was a nice benefit. Lake is quiet throughout the week and the loons will sing you a few tunes. Neighborhood is quiet as well and next door neighbor is willing to help if you need it but doesn't stick his nose in if you don't ask. Don't bring any water toys, there's plenty there.

A Truly Memorable Place

  • 5 of 5

Everything you read about Musky Lodge is true. In reality, it is even better. Our family of eight, including three generations, ranging in age from 11 months to 70 years, had a great time. The beach is perfect for little ones; the water is warm; and the fish are biting. The accommodations border on luxurious, especially the entrancing fire pit. We have been renting summer get-aways for over forty years, and Musky Lodge is definitely the best we've experienced. We'd love to return sometime.

Perfect for Anyone!

  • 5 of 5

We came on a family vacation and everything about the home, lake, and property was fabulous! It was equally perfect for the adults as for the small children.....Great deck and fire pit for enjoying quiet time, morning coffee, cocktails, and making memories! The kids (age 2-4) were in the water constantly - there was a great sand beach and the lake was very shallow until the end of the dock - so it was very child-friendly (and great wading for the adults!) Quiet lake - so no worries about alot of noise! Fishing was great and the kids could catch some great bluegill right off the dock! All the comforts of home and the house had plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 3 children.

Just What the Doctor Ordered!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, comfortable, clean home away from home. Wonderful deck with an awesome view of Muskellunge Lake. We sat on the deck and listened to the loons - fished every day, took walks and watched the wildlife at play. Friendly neighbors too. There was not a thing we needed that the owners did not supply - kitchen all ready for anything you might want to prepare. The boat with the gas motor was a wonderful plus! Thank you for a wonderful week!

Beautiful Week in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Very comfortable, spacious and clean. The owners are very kind and accomodating. The lake is wonderful! This is a perfect lake for watersports and relaxation. It's very quiet which makes it ideal for kids and lounging on rafts all day long. We were sad to leave and hope to return next year.
