Looking for a place big enough for your extended family or someplace you can share with friends? Come stay at The Elk Inn and let our lake home be the place where you create wonderful memories year after year. Our year-round 3800 square foot home on 212 acre full recreation Lily Lake offers ample living space with incredible lake views, abundant land and water activities, and the peace and solitude of the great Northwoods. Listen to the loons and whippoorwills, watch our resident eagle take flight, enjoy the beautiful sunsets, or just relax by the fire with family and friends. Our property consists of 3 wooded acres with 220 feet of lake frontage and beautiful unspoiled views.
Our clean, 8-year old home is fully-furnished and has warm, inviting decor that gives you the comforts of home with nature at your doorstep. On the main floor you will find the great room complete with a large, beautiful slate fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and abundant windows with lake views – a favorite gathering place. Adjacent to the great room is a generous sized kitchen which boasts a large hand-chiseled family-size table which seats 8-10, an eat-at kitchen island with seating for 3, and an additional corner breakfast nook that seats up to 5. This well-stocked kitchen also offers a full line of new appliances and more beautiful lake views. A powder room and separate laundry room complete with full size washer and dryer are located off the kitchen. Also off the kitchen is an oversized deck complete with a gas grill and deck furniture -- a perfect place for eating, taking in sunsets, or stargazing. On the main level you will also find two master suites complete with queen sized beds and full baths in each. The hallway adjoining the two masters has a ship’s ladder going to an upper private loft with four twin size beds and another amazing lake view. On the lower walk-out level of the home, you find two additional private bedrooms with queen sized beds as well as bunk beds or a trundle bed. You will also find another full bath, a large family room for adults and/or children to gather (more lake views!), and a mudroom with access to the oversized heated garage. Outside the garage is an outdoor firepit and a large lower concrete patio perfect for the little ones to ride their bikes on.
Our lake front has a pier for swimming and fishing and is well-suited for rental guests to bring a boat. If you do not have your own boat, we have a canoe and 3 recreational kayaks available to all of our guests as well as the option of renting our 24 ft. pontoon boat (14 person or 2200 lb. capacity). Our 32 ft. pier extends from a natural, rocky shoreline and is complete with a swim ladder and an excellent area for swimming. Our swim area has a hard sand/cobble bottom and no weeds. The water is 2-3 ft. deep near shore and 5-6 ft. deep near the end of the pier. We also have an Otter Island swim raft for your family to enjoy. Our property also offers some walking trails, an additional outdoor camping area with firepit, an outdoor swing facing the lake, a large hammock, and easy access to the Nicolet National Forest and other public lands with recreation trails for mountain biking, hiking, ATV, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Nearby you will also find beaches, whitewater kayaking/rafting/tubing on the Wolf River, golf, downhill skiing, and numerous family activities. Whether you choose to spend your time on the water or on land, we guarantee you will be able to create many wonderful memories you and your loved ones will cherish for many years to come. Come see and experience our Northwoods lakehouse retreat for yourself!

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Our family has always had a passion for the outdoors. We purchased the land our property is on in 2000 and camped on it for 9 years before building our lake house. Over the past decade, we have created many wonderful memories here and now we hope to offer others the same opportunity.
Why the Owner Chose Crandon, WI, USA:
We built this home with the idea of having several families stay together at the same time. We both have large families and we love having a place for multiple generations of family to gather or just getting a group of friends together to catch up and relax.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property because of the breathtaking unspoiled views, the bountiful pine, birch and maple trees, and the peacefulness of this lake. We enjoy all seasons here doing everything from mountain biking, hiking, swimming and boating in the summer to snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter.
