About Renea Frederick

I have owned a business for the last 15 years and always looking for the right place to entertain for business and to share some precious time with my family.

Renea Frederick purchased this Estate in 2011

Why Renea Frederick chose Stephenson

My husband and I have looked for years for a place we could use for entertaining our customers and training our staff. This is it. The house is equipped with everything we needed and is located in a gated 15 acre estate giving us the privacy we desired. The Green Bay airport is only 1 hour away. The City of Milwaukee is 4 hours away.

What makes this Estate unique

The Lodge is located on 15 acres of fence and gated property, allowing for a place to have meetings that need to be private. The Menomonee River is ranked in the top 10 small mouth bass rivers in the country. There is also many golf courses in the area, including SawGrass, whitewater rafting, hiking, hunting, snowshoeing and Lake Michigan is 15 minutes away. Lambeau is only 1 hour away. We have our own chef to prepare your meals the way you would like.

                                                                          Vladimir K.

                                                                          CO2 alarm went off in the middle of the night (3AM) while everyone was asleep. Fire department is automatically called by the home security system. Fire department arrives, tests for CO2, finds nothing, and mentioned that this is not the first time they have been called out for no reason to this property (i.e., the CO2 alarm is faulty).

                                                                          I call the owner to inform her of this and am accused of smoking in the facility. She stated that because no CO2 was detected we must have been smoking. At 3 in the morning. No one in my party has smoked inside. There was no smell of smoke ever detected. This claim is not only terrible customer service (to expect the worst of your guests) and unfounded on any actual evidence (many things can set off a CO2 alarm) but it is even unreasonable as the quantity of smoking that would have had to occur to make a level of CO2 that would set off the alarm possible is unreasonable. It would have taken a room of people all diligently smoking to make this occur (something which would have left a smell, without a doubt).

                                                                          The owner then claims (takes) the full security deposit based on this unreasonable claim.

                                                                          The stay was great, but the owner is unreasonable.

                                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                                          The security system is not faulty. It is tested daily by the security company, and I am informed when there is a issue. Something happen to set off the smoke alarm, which then notifies the fire department immediately. yes, I claim the entire security deposit, because the fire department is all volunteers and they left the families in the middle of the night to respond to the alarm. I donate the deposit to the volunteer fire department. I am happy that everyone was safe and there was not a major incident. I am also sorry that my guest feels this is unreasonable, but I feel it is appropriate.

                                                                          Breathtaking - Room for all!

                                                                          We just enjoyed No Worries Lodge for a family Thanksgiving and a wedding the day after. We had family and friends travel from Las Vegas, Connecticut, New York, Arizona and Australia. 14 adults and 5 kids. Everyone had a comfy space to sleep.

                                                                          We invited a few local family members over to join us for Thanksgiving Dinner and we had a great time - the kitchen was well equipped and we had such an enjoyable time together.

                                                                          When we first arrived the pond was frozen and the kids got a kick out of seeing the ice. The weather warmed up for the wedding day (about 50 degrees at the end of November!!). The ceremony was on the banks of the Menominee River and the sunset was amazing.

                                                                          We ended the wedding night with Fireworks that will be remembered for a long time by all who attended. Everyone loved the Lodge and found it amazing - I kept hearing that others now wanted to come back for a family reunion. A real gem in the UP.

                                                                          I even found out my cousin's husband helped build the place - so that was cool!

                                                                          Thank you Renea - everything was a dream come true! Memories for a lifetime!

It was nice to have a table that fit the 10 of us and the fire pit was great at night. There were two smallish charcoal grills, wish they were bigger. We also needed better Wi-Fi. Our thanks to the owner for a very enjoyable extended Labor Day weekend.

                                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                                          The Wi-Fi is the best that the location offers. State government does not invest in high speed internet service. I sure wish they would, it does affect the quality of my guests stay.

It was truly "all inclusive" We were in want of nothing!! The yard was fantastic for games, we roasted smores around the fire pit in the evening, comfy beds, canoed down the Menomonee river, enjoyed the paddleboat in the pond and the assortment for games and outdoor equipment was extensive. We went to DeYoung Zoo in Wallace which is something not to miss, A Family buys a Zoo, so interesting!! We enjoyed a family evening out at Belgiumtown Restaurant for a change of pace. We would luv to return again, this home was a big hit for our famiy of 19.

                                                                          Renea, you were very accessible and answered all our questions, to assure us of a pleasurable stay. Thank you for the welcome basket, it was a nice touch. Thank you so much, Laurie K.

There was plenty of room for everyone with a large kitchen, fully equipped, to prepare meals. With the river and swimming lake on site, there were plenty of activities to keep the children occupied and happy. This destination will definitely be on our list for a future visit.

                                                                          Great vacation home

                                                                          Throughly enjoyed our stay the week of July 22-29. The home was as advertised. All 13 of us would love coming back in the future. Plenty of space and amenities enjoyed by all. Kids and adults loved kayaking and canoeing on the pond. We enjoyed the great room with the bar area drawing the adults together. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything one needs to prepare meals and then some. We brought two boats and fished the river daily catching plenty of smallmouth bass, even from the bank. Just an excellent overall experience that we will cherish for years.

                                                                          Owner's Response:

There are 14 waterfalls in the area with exquisite scenery and photo opportunities. Signage has been provided along the route to help you find your way. Lake Michigan is only minutes away. Lambeau Field is only a little more then an hour away. There is also whitewater rafting, spring and early summer are when the river can reach Class V Rapids. A milder ride can be found in the summer and early fall when the lower water depth makes the river just right for the first time rafters, families and groups. Local rafting outfitters offer trips down both the Menominee and Peshtigo Rivers. There are also great snowmobling and ATV trails.
