About the Property
I have3 bedrooms, an office/bedroom, 2 baths, also a 400 sq. ft loft for add'l
We have 235 feet of river frontage, a wrap-around balcony that offers a sweeping view of the river where you can watch bald eagles soar and dive for fish as you sip your morning coffee. Dangle your feet off the dock and fish for muskie, sturgeon, bass, northern pike, catfish, and yes, the occasional annoying sucker fish, or take the flat-bottomed fishing boat provided to explore fishing opportunities further out. Alternatively, you can take the canoe and imagine what it was like to be a Native American canoeing this same river a couple hundred years ago.
In the evening, enjoy a mixed drink made at the festive outdoor tiki bar and watch the beautiful sunsets over the river. Fire up the gas grill and prepare your catch of the day, and after dark, gather around the fire pit on the natural log seating and roast marshmallows around the fire.
Tearing yourself away from the outdoors will be difficult, but when you do, you’ll be greeted by a warm, cheerful home and a 3-foot porcelain pig offering apples on a platter. You’ll find whimsical things like this throughout the home as this is a haven for fun and relaxation. You’ll want for nothing as far as kitchen appliances are concerned. Make use of a coffee pot, microwave, crock pot, 3-pot crock pot buffet server, griddle, waffle iron, pizza oven, deep fryer, blender, mixer, toaster, several sets of dishes, margarita set, bake ware, cookware, wine glasses, and drink glasses. The large pantry has all the basics
– sugar, flour, spices, etc. Just make sure to replace the stuff you finish so that the next person can enjoy the conveniences of home, too!
There is a large master bedroom with a luxurious queen bed and attached master bath on the main floor, two comfortable bedrooms (one with a full bed and the other with two twin beds) and a full bath on the lower level. Also on the lower level is an office/bedroom and a large laundry room for all of your laundry needs. The 400 square foot loft up above the main floor can accommodate several queen air beds (there are three for your use). My grandchildren love to have slumber parties in the loft, and all ten of them can easily fit with room to spare!
The home has beautiful hand-stained cherry wood cathedral ceilings, a cozy gas fireplace, central air, geothermal heating, Wi-Fi, and DirectTV for your convenience. Bed linens and towels are provided, and there are a few beach towels, too.
And last, but certainly not least, there’s a HUGE finished 3 car heated garage with a marble-topped wine bar. We often use this garage as a gathering place for our extended family on holidays. Complete with a fun palm tree adorned with lights, we love to have holiday meals in there and can easily fit a dozen people. There are also tables that can be used for scrapbooking, quilting, jewelry-making, and other crafting get-togethers.
If you feel the need to leave this amazing property, there are two golf courses nearby, or you can drive to the nearby town of Ladysmith for all of your shopping and antiquing desires. Ski slopes are about a hour away.
Seriously, though, I love this property, and I’m sure you will, too. I’m excited to share it with you!

My house is located on a peaceful area of the Flambeau River. My guests enjoy the quiet setting, the balcony overlooking the river where they can watch the eagles fish, the many different colored hummingbirds, and the indescribable sunsets. The river is shallow enough for kids to wander and play but still deep enough to take the canoe or tubes out. The fishing is great also or if you'd rather, the area has gift shops, art galleries, many restaurants and alot of music in the summer. It's a great place to find peace and/or entertainment ...I personally love the quiet mornings outside, local music on Sunday afternoons and a bonfire by the river at night.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I fell in love with this house the first time that I saw it. Unfortunately, I'm not able to be there full time so I decided to share it with others that enjoy natures beauty and the outdoors. I have three children, nine grandchildren and one little great granddaughter and they all love it here. I enjoy sharing this unique and peaceful home and have had wonderful guests.
Why the Owner Chose Holcombe, WI, USA:
I decided to purchase this property before I ever walked into it - a case of love at first sight. It has a plantation type feeling, two acres of land, a balcony overlooking the river and a great eco system. This home is secluded, the river is quiet, and it's a wonderful place to renew your spirit before you return to the 'real' world.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love sitting on my balcony with a warm cup of coffee in the mornings while I watch the eagles swoop and dive for fish. I also love sitting around the fire pit with my grandkids while we sing silly songs, tell tall tales, and make s'mores. The river's shallow enough on the near side that the kids can wade into it right off the shore, and it's deep enough on the far side that they can take the canoe or the fishing boat out and fish the deeper waters. My grandson's largest Sturgeon so far is over 50 inches- meanwhile my great granddaughter loves picking the blackberries - and my flowers but what can you say to a cute three year old that brings you a bouquet of petunia's and weeds? You put them in a vase and love them!
