Wonderful family vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Sue for a wonderful vacation property! Our family absolutely loved the beauty of this Pioneer Lake property and the surrounding woods, and we were awed by several eagle sightings.

We cooked every dinner on the Weber grill and roasted s'mores on the open fire under the stars. We also enjoyed local attractions (Chain Skimmers Water Ski Show, Watersmeet Trout hatchery, Bond Falls, and Torch Lake.

The two homes were ideal for our family and we’d love to come back again!

Beautiful location and property. Really quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The main house is amazing, great finishes, and excellent kitchen. The cottage was real nice and cozy. The bunk house was a great place to send the college kids. The location is perfect for getting to Conover, Eagle River and Three Lakes. We would definitely recommend this to others, and would like to return.

Awesome Property and Vacation Opportunity @ Pioneer Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to begin! First, I would be remiss if I failed to note how easy and enjoyable it was to make the arrangements with Sue. She is incredibly responsive (quick turnaround with email), helpful, and went above and beyond to help ensure our family would have a memorable vacation. Thank you, Sue!

That all being said, highlights include...

- A beautiful property / location and great accommodations - - The two bedroom cottage offered the six of us plenty of room. We enjoyed a couple of camp fires, made use of the Weber grill a couple of times, and headed up and down the 20 steps to the dock multiple times every day so our kids could tube the lake and fish. Plenty of panfish to catch right off the dock! Also, it's an easy 15 minute drive to and from Eagle River.

- Sitting on the dock and watching the kids jump in the water / onto one of our big blow up rafts for tubing with a beverage in hand

- Torch Lake - - 10 minute drive to crystal clear, shallow water, a great beach, and plenty of shade... be sure to check it out!

- Bond Falls State Park - - make sure you jump in your vehicle and drive 40 minutes to the U.P. Amazing waterfall and trail... well worth it!

- Maple View Resort on Pioneer Lake - - probably the best cod fish fry we have ever had! Get there early!!!! 5 minutes from the cottage.

- Going for a run - ok, jog - on the driveway (good chance you will run into deer or other wildlife) and the connecting road; my wife and daughter really enjoyed their morning walks, too. If you have bikes consider bringing them

- Eagles gracefully soaring above

Overall, I highly recommend the opportunities this cottage/property affords to unwind and reconnect as a family!

Great place to relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from a week's stay in the cute cottage. The cottage and property are clean, well maintained and offered us everything we would need. The location is great, the lake is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed seeing the deer, hearing the loons, and watching the eagles soar. The owner and property manager are both friendly and easy to communicate with. Highly recomend this to others!

Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. The cabin and grounds are very well maintained, clean and comfortable. We had a great week and our dog was in heaven (both on land and on the lake!). Communication with the owner and local manager was great. We are already talking about going back next year!! Would highly recommend this or the neighboring house on the same lot. Both are beautiful!
