You instantly feel you have entered the 'North Woods' as you peer out from many vantage points. Wether you are in the great room, 2 Master bedrooms, living room, exposed lower level bedroom and rec room you see the trees and lake .

As you enter the home the table is set for your week long vacation. An open concept kitchen, which if fully equiped, overlooks the dining area and living room with lake views. The kitchen is filled with new tableware, waterless cookware, coffee maker, toaster, griddle, and supplies for the family chef to use. If not in the mood to cook, several great restaurants are within minutes.

The lower level master bedroom has the Queen size 'Pine Cone' beroom set. Full lake views out of 5 full length windows. Walk out patio door and full bath.

The great room is large with 180 degree views of the North Woods and lake. The original living room has a walk out patio door and connects with the dinning room and kitchen.

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with extended family at the Pine Cone Place! Beautiful home with 4 specious bedrooms and three living areas. The great room has a gorgeous view of the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We rented the pontoon boat, fished every day and cruised the chain. We made s'mores over the fire pit and grilled hamburgers on the grill. We had a squirrel visit our bedroom to add excitement to the weekend. You will love this place. See how many pinecone items you can find!

Terrific vacation!

  • 5 of 5

5 High school friends (for 50 years) spent 5 wonderful days here in May, 2014. We've rented lots of houses over the years, but we all agreed this was one of the best ever! The house is beautifully decorated and very spacious. We decided we could all have brought our families and had enough room. The four bedrooms are all furnished beautifully right down to the last detail, and the beds were great. The closet space is unbelievable! We enjoyed cooking and visiting in the large, well stocked kitchen. The multiple TV areas provide viewing for different levels of interest. The slot machines in the family room and the hot tub were also fun. We were too early for the water activities, but the grounds are very nice. I would recommend this house to any group, family, or just a few girlfriends like us. Craig was probably the easiest owner we've dealt with, both in the booking process and when we were at the house. Thank you. We'll be back!

Wonderful place with lots of room and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 2 young children staying here and it was the perfect place with more than enough room for all of us. The layout of the house and the size of all the rooms are perfect to entertain friends and family together or you can be alone very easily. All of the full size bedrooms are awesome and the kitchen has a brand new refrigerator and stove with plenty of space to cook delicious meals. Also the use of the pontoon boat was phenomenal along with the backyard being a great place to relax and have a bonfire. I would recommend this place to anybody and would love to come back myself with an even larger group.

We had 10 people stay here and the house is great! 4 large bedrooms (a few with unbelieable views), 3 different living rooms (including a great basement and master living room), hottub, awesome views. Has eveything you need to have a great getaway! We already rebooked for next year and can't wait to stay here again. Owner has great communication and made the process very easy.

Location is about 15 minutes to Eagle River and is a very easy drive. Would highly reccomend!
