About Mary Krueger/ owner

Our family has enjoyed this property since 1988, first with a trailer on it and now our beautiful cottage built in 2002.

Mary Krueger/ owner purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Mary Krueger/ owner chose Hazelhurst

Both my husband and I vacationed on this lake as kids. So when the property came up for sale, we bought it site unseen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful time. Weather finally cooperated and we had beautiful weather. We used all of the toys and truly enjoyed paddle boarding, fishing and swimming. Our grandsons had a blast we hope to come back again.

Wonderful week at a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at this home and once again it was a wonderful time. Mary and Mike have put such love into their home and this makes it a very comfortable place to stay. The inside of the home and its open living makes it nice to cook, eat, play games and enjoy time as a family. The outside areas do the same. During the day, we enjoyed sitting on the dock while the kids played in the water. The kids enjoyed swimming to the swim platform, playing games in the water, and paddling around in the kayaks, paddle boards, and canoe. A few days they were catching so many fish they almost got bored of catching them. In the evenings, we all enjoyed grilling out on the lower patio then going to sit by the fire and watch the millions of stars and listen to the loons.

Overall, the love and care Mike and Mary have put into this house comes out and makes every moment relaxing and enjoyable.

Thank you for the use of your home,

The Hudson's

Awesome Time!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation! The owners met us upon arrival, they were friendly and gave us a tour of their home and all we needed to know regarding their property. We enjoyed the beach area and all the "toys" shared by the owners... Paddle boards, kayaks, canoe, row boat, Lilly pads, paddle boats...we had plenty to be entertained. Our week went by fast with lazy mornings, days hanging out by the water and a few campfires at night.

The property is a well cared for home that is ideal for entertaining and family togetherness. I truly recommend this property and with the proximity to Minoqua, there are restaurant choices and other activities.

We loved our week in this family-friendly lakehome

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I treated our kids and grandkids to a week at the lake. This home was perfect for us and our 5yr & 2yr old grandkids. The dock is great and the shallow, sandy shoreline is perfect for children. We all loved catching fish off the dock and the home was very comfortable for our 6 adults and 2 kids. There are bigger lakes nearby for our musky fisherman son, and Minocqua is just up the road. We would love to come back!

eastern shore of maryland

very family friendly, loads of amenities

  • 5 of 5

my daughter chose this house because it was very family friendly. lots of toys, a crib, high chair, even a gate at the top of the stairs leading to the lower level. the lake was clear with a shallow entry and a gradual slope to deeper water. lakeside there was a swing set, dock, fire pit and a fleet of small watercraft. the house was clean, modern and loaded with amenities, it was nice having the bearskin trail on the opposite shore of the lake. the owners were a joy to work with and we got our security deposit back in record time. i've rented at least 10 homes on vrbo and this was one of the best.
