Great place on a great lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family, six of us, all enjoyed the cabin. It was very spacious, clean, and located in a great spot on the lake. We would have ranked it as excellent if it would have had an outside fire pit as our family really enjoys nightly fires overlooking a lake. The owner was always very quick when returning emails. A terrific spot in which a large family can comfortably stay and enjoy the surroundings.

Relaxing, beautiful vacation in the Northwoods WI

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 families (6 people) spent a week at this nice and spacious home on Boot Lake near Townsend WI. Everything was as described: plenty of space for everybody, fully stocked kitchen (I do not have this much kitchen stuff at home than this house does), large deck, overlooking Boot lake, hiking trails around the lake, very nice beach across the lake, very clear water. Owner gave us recommendations with all points of interests in the area and gave us info where to rent a boat. We were lucky to get a brand new pontoon for our stay. Our men caught a lot of fish, mostly pikes and basses, couple of walleyes. I spent some time mushroom hunting and found plenty of chanterelles, that was a big surprise for me. Wildlife surrounding you everywhere: deer, turkeys, chipmunks. Everything was perfect! Recommend for everybody.

Nice vacation at the Loon's Nest. Boot Lake.

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adults, one 3.5 year old, and one infant) spent one week at the Loon's Nest in summer, 2015. We enjoyed this nice home built in the 1970's which sits relatively high above the lake, and gives a new perspective to the view from the spacious deck. There are neighbors on each side and we hardly knew they were there (very quiet and peaceful). Plenty of space in the house. Especially liked the roomy kitchen where we spent time visiting and preparing delicious meals. Used the nice gas grill on the deck for some of those meals. Nice having three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Nice to be on a lake with plenty of undeveloped shoreline in the Nicolet National Forest. The lake has excellent water clarity and the surface water temperature was 75 degrees - perfect for swimming. We brought our 17 foot boat which we docked at the pier. Did some fishing and caught some largemouth bass. No wake hours on the lake are 4pm to 11am which gives reasonable time for those that like to fish, kayak, or wakeboard - we did all three. We also did some biking and saw whitetail deer in the woods and very near the road. This review would not be complete without mentioning that the owner and property manager were both very friendly and helpful in assisting us to retrieve some of our belongings from the boathouse. We highly recommend this place for adults, and families with children of all ages that like to relax, swim, fish, kayak, canoe, water ski, wake board, or bike.

Absolutly Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Loons Nest, there were 3 couples. The house is large and very comfortable. We never felt crowded and each couple had their own bathroom which was great.

The view from the house and deck face the Nicolet National Forest so it is very serene. There are not a ton of houses on the lake like most lakes close to a major city. We took our own boat and we fished (fishing was good), went boating and tubing and swam. The lake is very clean.

We went shopping in Lakewood and went to the Carter Casino in Townsend, which I now call (Carter NoCashino) which is like 10 minutes away.

We definitely would go back again if it is available. We just loved it and had a wonderful time. It felt like home and the owner was great to work with too.

My week there was amazing! This Villa (It's not a cabin) is located in a piece of Paradise: Lakes, forest and wild life as you never seen in the life. Perfect for a lot of sports activities but you can't miss biking (or mountain biking) and fishing on the several lakes in the neighborhood.

Inside there are a lot of space and amenities so It's up to you if rest in the perfect quiet or to enjoy the company of your loved or friends.

So, a perfect place to stay and enjoy!

The Penokee - Gogebic Iron Range: 80 miles long and about a mile wide, this range of hills (formerly mountains) runs southwest from the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan to southeast Bayfield County, Wisconsin. It has a long and controversial mining history, dating back to 1848 when iron ore was first mined near Hurley, WI.
