About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

For rent is our log home on beautiful, sandy Island Lake in Barnes, WI. Island Lake is approximately 60 acres, and over 50' deep. It's large enough for skiing and tubing, but small enough that it doesn't have the heavy boat traffic of a larger lake. The beach and swimming area are pure sugar sand. There is a picnic table near the beach, and also a table and six chairs on the deck overlooking the lake, the perfect place for an evening cocktail or game of cards.

This home is perfect for year-round recreation, being located directly on the snowmobile/ ATV trail and featuring a trailer-friendly circle drive - no difficult late-night trailer backing required! Home also features air conditioning, heated floors on the main level and even an automatic back-up generator, should the power go out during your stay.

The main floor has complete living facilities,including laundry, perfect for someone of limited mobility. The loft area features the master bedroom with Select Comfort bed, walk-in closet and huge master bath and a twin captain's bed outside the master. The lower level features two large bedrooms overlooking the lake, bathroom with shower, family room and kitchenette with additional refrigerator.

About Darrin

We built this house in 1997 as a clean, safe place to raise our family while enjoying all the natural beauty of the Northwoods. The kids are now grown up and moved on and it's time for others to enjoy this beautiful home! I'm sure you will enjoy your time here as much as we do.

Darrin purchased this cabin in 1997

Great summer fmaily gathering

  • 5 of 5

From grandparents to grandchildren we had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the beautiful house with a fantastic view of the lake, the sandy beach, the pontoon, and the fishing, mostly bluegills. The children loved fishing off the dock where they could watch the fish bite. A great place to spend time with the family.

The pictures don't do this place justice.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is first rate and the lake was perfect. The general area was beautiful, including seeing an Eagle fishing in the lake on the Fourth of July and again 2 days later. the atmosphere is quiet and laid back and the kids enjoyed swimming and fishing in the lake. I hope to stay here again in the future.

Perfect location for everything we wanted to do.

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! There were 11 of us and we all fit perfectly. ATV trails are about a half mile away, the lake was perfect for some kayaking and swimming, and the weather was perfect! We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful cabin to stay at. Easy access to ATV trails which was our main purpose for traveling to this area. The cabin was very clean. It was easy to work with the Owner prior to the stay. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is due to the delay of return of my damage deposit. I had to contact him greater than a week later for my damage deposit return. His response was that he was "out of town on business". Isn't having your cabin listed on VRBO a business that you run and operate providing you income? My damage deposit return is important too as a customer.

Owner's Response: Kim, thank you for choosing to stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed your stay ending November 13th! I try to maintain good communication with guests, even when I'm out-of-town, which is why I pecked out a reply on my cell phone on the 17th, saying that I would take care of your damage deposit refund as soon as I returned home. I processed a complete refund of your $250 deposit on the 20th, well within the 10 days specified in the rental agreement you signed. I'm uncertain exactly what your expectations were, so I'm not sure what more we could have done to meet them. We appreciate your business and perhaps we can exceed your expectations next time. Darrin

Great Cabin For Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is very nice inside. Plenty of space in the basement for kids to sleep and play. Main floor has a comfortable living room and kitchen had everything we needed. Nice views from the deck towards the lake. The beach was a big hit with the kids because the water was pretty warm due to the lake not being a big lake and we rented in August, so it was nice to have water temps peaking as well. The fire pit had plenty of available firewood. There was foosball/air hockey table in the basement that the kids enjoyed playing with. We had fun in the water in the canoe and paddle boat.

What we liked:

- Great swimming beach and fishing dock

- Nice, clean cabin and cabin layout

- Quiet, peaceful neighborhood

What we didn't like:

- Cabin is on a pretty steep slope and no large flat-ground area for yard games (croquet, badminton, bocce)

- No larger local stores for groceries. We had to drive about 40 minutes into Hayward to get to a larger grocery store

Overall, we would recommend this property and had a great stay, but it wasn't perfect for us - thus, why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5.
