About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Relaxing. Tranquil. Scenic....Consider our year around home as your dream vacation spot! Located 10 miles west of Spooner, WI on a 400 acre lake, Lipsett is known for its: fishing, recreational activities and its leisure activities. We invite you to bring your boat or jet ski and secure them to the dock. In the summer, relax on the wrap around deck with a cool beverage or an evening dinner and enjoy the relaxing views and the phenomenal sunsets! Enjoy a campfire while roasting hot dogs and s'mores while taking in the sounds of the loons and eagles. Enjoy the lake activity and views while relaxing on the lakeside patio. If canoeing, kayaking or paddle boating interest you, they are available during your stay. Winter offers just as many recreational opportunities with ice fishing, cross country skiing , snowshoeing and snowmobiling to mention a few. Access the nearest snowmobile trail at the end of our driveway and decide whether to visit the trails in Burnett or Washburn counties.

Our home is situated about 0.5 miles in from the main road, nestled in the woods, on the lake. It is a modified A-frame with 3 bedrooms (king/king/queen) and a spacious loft with 2 queen beds and a twin bed. The main floor offers a relaxing TV room with a gas fireplace, an open gourmet kitchen with a counter for dining, a knotty pine 4-season porch surrounded by windows and views of the lake, access to the deck, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The basement offers another TV room, gas fireplace, wet bar and refrigerator, walk out to the lake, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room.

The shore of our property offers shallow water and is perfect for small children to safely enjoy.

While our home is considered 'in the woods', the amenities are just like being at your own home with 3 TV's with satellite reception, a DVD, a kitchen well stocked with cookware and utensils, dishwasher, 2 refrigerators with one being a high quality Sub-Zero, a Thermador convection oven, drinking water purifier, water softner, wireless internet, a treadmill, central air conditioning and a gas grill. You will find everything you possibly need to make your stay enjoyable.

Driving time from the St. Paul MN area is about 2 hours. A day trip to Hayward, WI will take about 40 minutes, 90 minutes to Duluth, MN and 45 minutes to Rice Lake, WI.

Whether you are looking for a fast paced, activity filled vacation or a quiet escape from the busy routine, our home on Lipsett Lake will exceed your expectation. We invite you to come see for yourself!

About Kathy Collins

We purchased our lake home when we retired in 1995. We have enjoyed many years and wonderful memories at the lake with our children and grandchildren. As our lifestyles have changed over the years, we have now decided to share our home with others.

Kathy Collins purchased this house in 1995

Why Kathy Collins chose Northwest

We have been vacationing to the northwestern Wisconsin since the 1960's and fell in love with the area. When the opportunity arose, we were able to fulfill our dreams of purchasing a home on a beautiful lake in the area we have so come to love!

What makes this house unique

There is nothing quite like sitting on the deck and watching the unbelievable sunsets across the lake. We have nicknamed one of the eagles that lands in our tree, 'Harley'. To see the beauty of this raptor at such a close distance is amazing.

Our property is almost level to the lake, with only a few steps to reach the dock. This is handy for families with small children and those who are challenged with mobility.

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy has everything you need for a perfect lake side vacation. We had two families and there were more than enough bedrooms to accommodate 9 of us. We enjoyed the 4 seasons porch and the outside deck overlooking the lake. We also enjoyed the use of the paddle boat and kayaks. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful home and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 6 other women stayed at Kathy's home the week of July 16th-23rd. The home had plenty of space for all of us and was well equipped for cooking. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and paddle boat although most of our time spent floating in the lake. The weather perfect and the lake was wonderful! Kathy was great work with and responded quickly when we had a question. We are already looking at dates for next year!

Fun girl's weekend

  • 5 of 5

The coldest weekend of the winter 5 of us had a great time at the house. It was too cold to go outside but inside had everything we could possibly need. We spent the weekend cooking in the fully equipped kitchen. We played games around the fireplace. There was plenty of room for all five of us - we each had our own bed without having to sleep in any of the common living areas. The house was very clean, plenty of towels, and cozy blankets. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and there were plenty of brochures and information about the area and lakes in the house. We highly recommend this property.
