About the property

Vintage seasonal log cabin private lakeshore getaway.

Come listen to the wind whisper through the trees, the gentle waves against the shores of Bertha Lake and step into a time when things were simpler and back to nature.

Relax, unwind get away, play, bathe in the sun, go swimming, boat and see the lakes of the Whitefish Chain, bird watch, fish off the dock or sit around the fire and roast some marsh mellows. Take a walk and explore 20 acres of wilderness. If that's not enough, you're just minutes from golfing, shopping dining and dancing. You can even take in a new movie!

Witch Water Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wow - loved this cabin and the location. It was everything that was described in the ad plus more. Beautiful setting, nice dock with great swimming, beautiful sunsets in the evening. We had three meals of fish while we were up there. Love the long driveway for walks, very quiet and relaxing. And I loved the fact I could bring my dog, she also enjoyed her family vacation. The cabin is comfy, lot's of lawn furniture outside, very relaxing vacation. Looking forward to booking for 2016.

Clean and quiet place

  • 5 of 5

This a great private place to get together with friends or family. The cabin is clean and neat. There's plenty of lawn furniture to enjoy. Great view of the lake. The long driveway through the woods is cool, it makes you feel like you are up north. Thank you to Jodie for the nice weekend.

Second Year at "WITCHWATER"

  • 5 of 5

Second year at Witchwater and looking forward already to next year. Once again the cabin ticked all the boxes!!! Everything in side and out was well maintained the new shower was a plus. Jodie is always there to help with and answer any questions. Being on Bertha is a great launching point to begin your day on "THE CHAIN" or a quick round of golf just down the road. If you want that true feeling of going to the lake and turning back the clock we would highly recommend WITCHWATER !!!!!!

Private and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is truly rustic in such an amazing way. From the stove, the wooden beams, the decor, and stone fireplace it really felt like a cozy old cabin, but it was very spacious. For the age of the home, I was surprised how large the one bathroom was. The property is very secluded. We did a lot of fishing (caught crappies, northern pike, bass, rockbass and sunnies), swimming, had bonfires and walked the .4 mile driveway. The dogs loved the water, and although there is not a beach, the water right off the deck is not "weedy" and starts out pretty shallow. Perfect for cooling off. The sunsets from this side of the lake were also amazing!!! They provided a lot of chairs outside so you don't really have to bring much. There were lots of fans too since there is no air conditioning. The boat launch was only about 2 miles away and was very convenient. Hope to be back!!
