Wonderful family vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved the beauty of Pioneer Lake and the surrounding woods, and we were awed by several eagle sightings! The two homes were ideal for our extended family of nine, and we’d love to come back again!

Beautiful house, cottage and bunk house

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. Weather could have been better, but the entire family had a great time. The house was amazing, the cottage was cozy and nice. The bunk house is perfect for the kids to hang out. The property is very well maintained and secluded. Quiet at night, just the looks. I was almost run over by a fawn running through then property. Neither of us saw each other until we were led than 5' apart. Would definitely go there again.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations. The house was spacious and beautiful and the bunkhouse was adorable. The grounds were very pretty and private, and the lake is peaceful. We caught many fish including panfish, bass, and northern. There is a family of loons on the lake provide beautiful sounds throughout the day. There are also at least two eagles that soar over the lake. Wonderful time had by all.

Outstanding...just a perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The whole property is just beautiful! The home was so welcoming and super clean. Sue was so responsive to all our questions from the time we booked to arrival. The deck on the house is just wonderful! For us, we wanted to catch fish... Pioneer Lake did not disappoint! We caught large northern and bass and loads of pan fish. This is a great quiet lake and was easy to navigate. We loved the roomy pier... If we were not out fishing we were catching lots of fish off the pier. Sue suggested a few boat rental places. We used Dave's Boat Rental and he was great! Delivery and pick-up of a pontoon boat was easy! We cannot say enough good things about our experience! We loved running in to Eagle River for food, bait, and other necessities! Thank you so much for such a memorable family vacation!

Great home on a quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything our family needed to make our stay enjoyable. It was very spacious, with a kitchen that was fully stocked with anything you may need! The dishwasher was a huge plus for us, and a washer and dryer was nice too. The weather was not very desirable so we didn't get to fish or do too much swimming. The kids enjoyed swimming of the dock though. I'd recommend swim shoes for young kids if swimming off the dock. The lake is on the small size, but not busy and very quiet. Home is conveniently located. We went bowling and to the Children's museum in Eagle River. We also drove to Minoqua to go to the zoo which I would recommend if you have kids! We enjoyed our stay, and Sue was easy to communicate with!

Wonderful quiet house with all the amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the house. Everything was clean and well stocked for our group of 5. The kitchen had all the stuff to cook with and even spices to add a wonderful touch. House was nice and large so we were not bumping into one another. Dishwasher and washer and dryer added to our convenience. Enjoyed the nice large deck and the fire pit as well. There was good fishing on the lake. The only drawback was that there were about 20 stairs to climb to the pier which was difficult for my husband. We were not able to go into the lake to swim due to many stones in the lake. You would have to climb down a ladder to get into the water which would be difficult. My granddaughter missed her wi-fi. I would recommend this property for a nice vacation.
