Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jon:

Your photos are excellent. It is just so nice there the pictures could never show that. Everything is so well thought out, such as bedding, dishes, glassware and decor matching. So many cottages are just thrown together, as if the people that own them just put things they don't want anymore in them. This place truly feels like home. Yes you may use are comments. Just one question for next summer do you rent by the week only or could someone pay for a couple extra days if they wanted to.

Thanks again

A wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful fall week at Jon's place. The home was situated on a nice private lot and close to the lake, so even when chilly outside you could enjoy the view! Spotless and well maintained! We enjoyed a few sunny days with late afternoon boat rides in the fishing boat. Everything we were looking for!

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful lake house. It had everything we needed and it was perfect!! We loved the use of the fishing boat and even caught a few fish!! The house was very clean and comfortable!! We loved having a washer and dryer too!! We took our bikes and were able to enjoy the scenic rides on both the roads and the paved trails!! We also enjoyed all of the wildlife that we saw right in the back yard. We will definitely be back next year!!

Close to recreation!

  • 4 of 5

Sunset Bay Retreat was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The weather didn't cooperate during our stay for much time on the lake, but we truly enjoyed the wildlife that was on/in the water right in front of the cabin: herons, ducks, geese, deer, etc. The setting was quite private - yet surprising close to a wide array of small communities. Vilas County has GREAT bike & hike trails. As the weather was cool during our stay, we biked and hiked each day - the location is perfect for anyone who is a outdoor sports enthusiast. We would definitely rent Sunset Bay Retreat again.
