About The Owner

Kim and Steve own the Konkapot Lodge in Bowler, WI and take pride in making your vacation a memorable experience. We love the peace, quiet and scenery of the north woods and know you will too.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why The Owner chose Bowler

We live across the field from 'Camp Okee-Dokee', and bought the property because we wanted to preserve the log home for family retreats. We opened for renting in the summer 2011.

What makes this cabin unique

If you have a crazy job and schedule and just need peace, quiet, and are content with star-filled evenings and watching wildlife--this is the perfect place. We've hosted many family gatherings there and there is plenty of space for everyone. Being together, playing games, reading, etc are all important, but if you also want gaming action or live entertainment, we are centrally located (within 16 miles) of three native owned casinos.

Beautiful home is the perfect place for a restful fall weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an altogether great experience here for a late fall get away weekend with our dogs Eddie and Sadie. The house and it's furnishings were warm, comfortable and everything you could want in an upnorth retreat. We enjoyed walking the property and up the quiet dirt road with the dogs.

I especially enjoyed soaking in the jetted tub with candles and a glass of wine after a day of shopping in downtown Shawano. We found some nice shops including a full service shoe store, Old Glory Candy Shop (the ultimate FUDGE EXPERIENCE) and a friendly bar for bar-b-que and chili for lunch. Bowler has some nice places to grab a bite and a beer as well.

We look forward to returning possibly this winter and certainly this summer if possible.

Thanks for a more than enjoyable getaway!! Manette Babb & Dick Mader, Randolph, WI

PERFECT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5

I am the coach of a high school cheer team from central il and we came to camp okee dokee for our end of the season trip. We truly could NOT have picked a better place! The girls and us coaches had a blast! We ended up coming to the first snow as well and the snow was just an absolutely breathtaking view from the cabin. We will most likely return in our separate families.

Quiet & Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Truly wish we would have planned on staying a little longer. Really loved sitting out on the desk just listening to nature and enjoying the scenery. The bedrooms were set up wonderfully with very comfortable beds and great pillows. We look forward to coming back again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about your dissatisfaction, but it would have been nice for you to have raised these issues during one of our three phone calls with you during the week. The sheets were clean, but the whole-house iron filter needed changing after a summer of heavy use. We may have caught this had you reported it during your stay. Finally, while we attempt to get guests started with paper products, all guests are responsible for their own consumables.
