Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 had plenty of room at the Gilas Getaway lake home. The master bedroom was very comfortable with a king-size bed, master bath and walk-in closet. Didn't use the fire place since we had a beautiful, warm summer week. The other three bedrooms in the house all had double top/double lower bunk beds to sleep up to 4 people each room. The garage bedroom with queen bed was a bit claustrophobic with no windows. We rented the pontoon boat and enjoyed going out on the lake for swimming. Not much luck with fishing, only caught one bass. Gilas Lake was great for my favorite water sport -- kayaking! It's a good thing we've been going to the gym, since there are 48 steps down to the dock. We had our evening campfires on the lawn near the walk-out basement. We also enjoyed the hot tub after a swim. The owners were very responsive with emails and one little problem that was fixed promptly. Thank you, Scott and Brenda, for sharing your home.

Loved the House and the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and there was plenty of room for our guests. The open concept kitchen and living room were great for entertaining. The upper deck was perfect to sit out on and visit. There is also nice lawn for the kids to play games on. The hot tub was just the thing to relax in at night. The lake is very clear and we enjoyed swimming, floating, kayaking and canoeing. Although the lake is very quiet, there is a restaurant, mini-mart, meat market/convenience store and ice cream parlor within 10 minutes. Scott and Brenda were very accommodating and easy to work with. We would definitely stay again.

We had a great week!!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place. We were able to access the ATV trails from the cabin. We took our boat out on Gilas Lake one day and to Lake Noquebay a different day. The boat launch for Gilas Lake was a little tricky to find. Its down a long gravel road off of Parkway Rd. The hot tub, sauna, and playset were a big hit with the kids and adults in our group. We found plenty of things to do in the area including a trip to Green Bay, a tour of Lambeau Field, and a trip to Marinette/Menominee. I'd like to throw in my 2 cents on the 5th bedroom in the garage...we had multiple people in our group who wanted it. Its actually really nice and quiet out there. You won't hear other people wake up early. If you have a dog that might wake up the house, choose this room. If your a couple that wants some extra privacy, choose this room. Its fantastic.

The only 2 minor hurdles we had were finding the boat launch and finding this cabin. Its tricky to find in my opinion. Look at some maps ahead of time to give you a good idea of where to look for the driveway (GPS coordinates: 45.159619, -88.166356). Other then that, everything went smoothly and I highly recommend this wonderful place!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! We have been staying at different places on our family vacations for about 13 years and this was one of our very favorite properties. We enjoyed swimming in the lake, fishing from the dock and being all together on the spacious deck. We loved looking at the stars from the deck and listening to the Loons in the evening. There were 16 of us with plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably.

We just returned from spending a full week at this beautiful property. As this was our first time using VRBO, we were a bit apprehensive about the entire process, but were pleasantly surprised by the ease of it all. The pictures for this home are spot on. The property was clean and well stocked with everything you wouldn't want to bring from home. The lake was small and quiet. Great for a swim, a pontoon ride, tubing or just sunning on a floatation device. Our hosts answered all of our questions before we arrived and made checking in and checking out a breeze. Directions to the place were really simple and it also worked on our GPS.

Our family of 9 found plenty to do in the area and on the property grounds (great playset for the kids). Two fire pits made for enjoyable evenings for the grandkids and their s'mores and roasted starburst (pinterest idea). The hot tub and sauna made for enjoyable and relaxing times for the adults.

Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Scott and Brenda!

Lake Gilas Getaway

  • 3 of 5

I will start with a positive about this rental. It is a very nice lake and the house/deck is beautiful. We spent everyday on that deck with coffee or drinks enjoying the view. Also, if you have young kids, they can just splash around down by the dock as it has some sand and shallow water. The pictures that are shown are very accurate. I will say that what wasn't shown is that the 5th bedroom is in the garage and not very appealing if you are planning on needing that extra room. We had our entire family there and no one wanted to sleep there, they chose instead to sleep on the couch. We had a few other issues come up and the owner did work with us on a satisfactory solution. But for anyone who has stayed in VRBO's on a regular basis, they know that there is a big difference between a great rental and a mediocre rental. Maybe the owners of this VRBO are new to this and just need to get it down, but right now they seem too busy to make it an outstanding location that people want to return to.

They have very strict rules for the lake, and believe me if you are out on the lake 1 minute past quiet time (4pm) someone from one of the other homes will come out on their dock and blow an air horn at you to let you know. Get very good directions to this home before you go, it is very hard to find and not on GPS, if you do not know the area and go at night, you might really have a problem.
