Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Lakeview Lodge is named for its incredible view of beautiful Squaw Lake. Perched atop a gentle slope, guests enjoy unrivaled views of the lake, and surrounding birch, pine and maple trees from the large picture windows, the front deck and picnic/camp fire area.

NOTE: We are licensed, insured and pass health and safety inspections each year. Lakeview Lodge is LEGALLY zoned for short term vacation rentals. Caretakers ON SITE to cater to your needs during your stay.

This house is ideal for multiple families because of its set-up. It has two levels--level in from the driveway and level-out toward the lake--and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms (one tub/shower, two showers), two full kitchens with all cooking/eating utensils, two dining rooms and living areas, two TVs (including a 37" HD flat screen) with DirecTV satellite service featuring over 200 channels, two VCR/DVD players, WI-FI, laundry facilities and lots of privacy.

• The master bedroom has a California king-size bed and a beautiful view.

• The second bedroom contains a double bed and set of bunks.

• The third bedroom offers a double bed.

•The fourth bedroom on the lower level has a queen-size bed and a private bathroom.

• Roll-away, futon and a fold-out sofa are available for extra sleeping space.

All of your bed linens, sheets/blankets/pillows, are provided.

The interior is decorated with vintage quilts and tapestries, Ironwood furniture and special artistic touches are found throughout. An extensive reading library is also featured. Lakeview Lodge also has a very large screened porch with a table and chairs and a lounge chair, and deck on the front with Adirondack and comfy chairs for you to sit back and enjoy the view.

LOCATED ON SQUAW LAKE: Squaw is 785-acre, class A muskie lake and it's NOT on a chain. (This means there's lots of water to explore without a lot of boat traffic). It's known for its loon families, eagle and heron nests, and also known for northern, walleye and crappie fishing. Pan fish may be caught off the end of the dock or swim rafts. Walleye bag limits (and other restrictions) are determined each spring and posted at the public boat landing on the west side of the lake. Fishing licenses and live bait are available at nearby bait/tackle shops. There is a fish cleaning house on the property.

Please note: We require a two-night minimum stay, and during the high summer season (mid-June through the third week of August) we rent only by the week, Saturday-to-Saturday. Over the Christmas/New Year's holidays, we require a 4-night minimum stay.

Why Michele Cozzens chose Northeast

It's the Northwoods--a vacation paradise. This property has all the benefits of being a private house on Squaw Lake but with the added amenities of the intimate and outstanding Sandy Point Resort located next door. Read all about Mike and Michele in Michele's popular memoir, 'I'm Living Your Dream Life' Available at Amazon.

What makes this house unique

Squaw Lake is a beautiful, peaceful lake. The loons return each spring and nest on Squaw Creek, very close to the shoreline of Lakeview Lodge. The Northwoods is an incredible place to be during the summer. We breathe easier, we sleep better. We are close enough to town for your grocery and entertainment needs, yet far enough out that you will experience a true getaway feeling. Everyone who comes, almost always returns. It's magic.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lakeview Lodge for our entire family which included two daughters, one son-in-law and four grandsons plus my husband and myself. The lodge was great, the swimming terrific, the lake beautiful. We were able to use all the facilities of Sandy Point Resort which was only a few yards from our pier. We had no trouble obtaining kayaks or paddle boats to take out on the lake (free). We also had our own rowboat. The grandsons loved the sandy beach and the lake. It was great because it is shallow and gets deeper very, very gradually. You could walk to the raft and still be above water (the adults, that is). Plenty of beds and space. Very clean. We had a ball! Thanks for your hospitality.

Great Lodge, Great People, Great Resort!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 friends and I recently took the trip up to the North Woods to Sandy Point. We had played there many times before, but this was our first stay at the LakeView Lodge. What can I say? The Lodge is amazing! It is plenty big, with 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms, and 5 bedrooms! However, they backyard is the place to be! We had our own hole #26 in our backyard! It was fun watching groups pass through and shooting the breeze with them as they "chanced" going for the ace and ending up in the lake!

The course is astonishing. It is extremely well kept for a north woods course and even has benches and brooms at every pad! You can tell the amount of effort they put in so they can have the cleanest and most creative course in Wisconsin! You wont believe how they could create a course like this in the dense woods, without it having unforgiving rough like Highbridge or Standing Rocks. Favorite course I've ever played bar none, and I've played the previous #1 course in the nation at FLYBOY Aviation in Gerogia. This course blows it out of the water.

We had a great 2-day weekend in the Northwoods. Sandy point balances having a resort for the whole family to enjoy, while also not having a "presence" so it really makes you feel like you're on your own. BTW, you don't have to bring up many of your own toys. They supply grills, boats, canoes, cookware, places, everything. Hope everyone gets to enjoy this resort, because we will be coming back for years!

Lakeview Lodge at Sandy Point Resort and Disc Golf Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Had a terrific time at Sandy Point's Lakeview Lodge. There were two families in our party staying at the lodge. The kids aged 13-21 all had a great time and even hung out with us oldsters once in a while. We love Sandy Point, because it's beautiful, relaxing and something for everyone to enjoy. It was our first stay at the Lakeview Lodge. We had a great time. Not only does the Lakeview have a spectacular view, extra large screen porch, deck, big kitchen-dining-livingroom space, it's very private. The cabin has 3 full bathrooms, a very nice feature. Every room is very nicely decorated and clean as a whistle. The owners are down home and friendly.

Warning - once you spend a week at Sandy Point - you will have to book every upcoming year!

  • 5 of 5

As a young man I would visit Sandy Point Resort & Disc Golf Course simply for their World Class Disc Golf Course as well as their tournaments. However, about 10 years ago I 'graduated' to becoming a renter of my favorite building on the property - Lakeview Lodge. With nearly a dozen years of renting experience now I can assure you, this is in fact the place to be.

As they have displayed with the pictures - this huge lodge (which is the cabin on the property) gives your family and friends more than enough options for your week long stay. With rooms and beds galore, multiple bathrooms and kitchens, you can choose to act as a big family or you can have some separation between you and the downstairs sleepers.

The property also plays host to an amazing disc golf course and a pro shop which sells disc golf supplies as well as beautiful, hand made jewelry, and anything else you may need during your week long stay.

Most residents have no need to leave this beautiful property during the week but if you choose to, there are dozens of small town restaurants, bars, and specialty shops all located nearby. Additional recreational activities such as go-carts, zoo, and ball golf are also less than 15 minutes away. You can even find the Lake of the Torches Casino just 10 minutes down the road.

If you aren't convinced just yet of how highly I think of Sandy Point you should also know that I even proposed to my (now) wife while visiting Sandy Point in 2006. A free, onsite canoe provided the perfect journey to the middle of Squaw Lake where I managed to propose on one kneed without tipping the canoe or dropping the ring in the water.

BOOK TODAY because if this place has a rare opening - you'd be crazy to not go up there and fall in love with it!

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had a the pleasure of staying in this lovely northwoods home one week each summer for the past 13 years. The pictures and description provided are very accurate. The home is very clean and well- maintained. We have visited with extended family members, and the two levels of the house allow us to be together and yet have some privacy also, an ideal arrangement. We especially enjoy the deck and the screened-in porch. The view of the lake and the woods is as beautiful as it appears. There is a great sandy beach with lots of shallow water for wading, and the lake is fun for swimming, boating and fishing. We have found this to be a perfect vacation for kids of all ages -- ours have been there from toddlers through their teens and there is something to do for everyone. Our kids love the disc golf (frisbee) course that runs through the woods. It's an easy game to learn, and we play daily on our annual vacation. The owners are among the loveliest people we know -- warm and welcoming and gracious. Their pride in this property is reflected in the care they take with its upkeep. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a memorable northwoods vacation, and we can't wait for our next visit!

Owner's Response: . . . and how QUICKLY that one week goes each year. We are blessed to have had three generations of this family stay at Lakeview Lodge over the years. They, and families like theirs', are the reason we not only stay in business, but also why we strive to maintain this lake house to keep being all our guests expect and enjoy. Thank you J & D.
