Cozy Lake Home with All the Amenities

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 bed/1 bath + sun porch (sleeps 6-8)

Charming fully furnished Lake house for both friends and families to enjoy. The house is situated on a charming 450 acre lake in northern Wisconsin. The lake is known as a class A Musky Lake, but other species abound including Walleye, Crappie, Bass, Perch, and pan-fish. If fishing is not what you are after, there are also water-sports to enjoy. The property has 100 feet of slowly sloping sandy bottom frontage. My friends have children that love to play around the dock. Even at 200 feet out, the sandy bottom is only 4-5 feet deep.

After a long day of fishing or playing on the water, it is always nice to enjoy a few smores and beverages around the large fire ring. There is also a wood burning Sauna located 5 feet from the water. Perhaps a nice relaxing stint in the Sauna followed by a jump in the lake is what you're looking for? New floors, cedar tongue and groove ceiling, and a modern bathroom are among the highlights. The kitchen is also newly finished with modern appliances. Nice furniture and a 55' LED TV come standard in the living room. Perhaps sitting around the cozy fireplace tickles your fancy?

Sleeping arrangements are as follows.....1 queen bed upstairs in the Master Bedroom facing the lake. Down the hall there are 2 more bedrooms. One room houses 1 double bed, and the other, 2 twin beds. In the sunroom there is a hide-away bed, and there is also an air mattress and couch to sleep a few more.

About Jim Saksewski

I have decided to rent out my lake home over the summer now that I work and live an hour away. My loss is your gain!

Jim Saksewski purchased this house in 2008

Why Jim Saksewski chose Douglas County

This area is a great getaway destination for friends and families. The lake is close enough to a big city(Duluth / Superior) but yet far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle. This particular location is notorious for being 10 - 15 deg warmer than in town (away from Lake Superior).

What makes this house unique

This is a great place to wake up to the residing Loon family singing a song. Walk out the door and 100 feet to the lake while enjoying your coffee. Peace and tranquility can be enjoyed to its fullest!

I also enjoy the 3 watering holes around the lake. There is also a general store at the campground...they have the best pizza around!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay for a weekend getaway! Launched a boat and did a little fishing on the lake, went golfing at a very well maintained golf course 10 minutes away and played yard games and had a bonfire. We also took advantage of the sauna which operated very easily! Very comfortably slept 7 people. Would definitely book again!

Most relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed during Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time! Loved the open concept living and kitchen home. The owner was easy to work with and trusting. We were able to use the place as we pleased and the neighbors nearby were amazingly nice! I would definitely recommend this place and plan to go back in the future!

Lovely lake cabin styled home.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Jim was always available with any questions we had before and during our stay. This was a lovely home with any amenity you could ask of a vacation home. Access to water right on the property, a very beautiful, quiet lake. Would happily recommend this property!

Family Reunion -August 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had family in town from Ohio, NY and Minneapolis ranging in age from 1 to 80 and this home was perfect!. The level lot and plenty of parking made it easy for all to move around. We played lots of yard games and used the kayaks every day. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and will rent again if the reunion is up north again. Thank you
