First but not Last awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Pinewood Place was the perfect home for my family to vacation this August. Your home was very clean, furnished and stocked with everything we needed. Loved the privacy and really enjoyed preparing our meals in the very nice, well equipped kitchen, eating either in the dining room or on the deck. We enjoyed the fire pit every night and played Ping Pong and Foosball everyday. The view of Prairie Lake was awesome, I could sit and enjoy that view forever. We rented a Pontoon and fishing boat from Outer's Resort next door, Dave was great to work with also. So we spent a lot of time on the beautiful lakes. It was wonderful to have access to the lakes right out the back door. Fishing was not the best but we still enjoyed fishing everyday and my grandsons caught enough fish to have one delicious meal. We vacationed with family at their cottage a few miles out of Chetek near Potato Lake in the 1970's & 1980's but hadn't been to Chetek since 1987, that is what brought us back. We went for a drive one day and found the cottage...that was a thrill. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing, memorable vacation in Chetek at Pinewood Place and definitely plan on coming back, if you will have us. LeAnn, your grandmother would be so proud of you and pleased that so many people from all over the country are able to vacation and enjoy her lovely home. The best compliment I can give you.... is it felt like home to us. Thank you very much LeAnn and Matt, we had an awesome vacation.

Your Friends,

Jen, Dylan, Bailey and Judy

Family Fun

  • 4 of 5

We stayed this summer for our annual family "camping" trip. (5 adults & 6 kids) The house was perfect. A lot of space for a lot of people so you don't feel cramped on those rainy days. The basement is perfect to send the kids down to play! Guessing if we had more daughters we would've had an issue w/only one bathroom, but all was good! The yard is perfect for running, playing and campfires. The little kids were able to ride bikes in the garage & driveway. Unfortunately this year there was an extreme algae bloom so the fishing wasn't great but all kids had a good time trying! For swimming, there is shallow water about half-way out along the dock. However, there isn't a ladder so it did make it difficult for the 3 year old to get in & out as there isn't a beach-type entry. The teens loved the canoes and ability to go off and fish. There are plenty of side roads for walks. The highlight was when the ice cream truck came through. The kids had never experienced this before! Overall, this is a great place. The owners are very personable & attentive. The place is extremely clean & very well maintained. Everything you need is right on sight- grilling, kitchen cooking, lounging in the yard! We do prefer a beach, so we probably wouldn't stay here again for our family stay. It would be perfect if we didn't have little kids.

Owner's Response: We are glad that your family had a great time! We're sorry that it was a little harder for the younger ones in your group to enjoy the swimming area as much. We hope that when they get a little older you will come stay with us again!

4th of July Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best time at Pinewood Place on Prairie Lake! The house was perfect, when you first walk in you notice how clean it is (even the driveway and the deck were spotless), everybody commented how we wish we could keep our houses this clean! We had 8 adults plus an almost 3 year old and we all had our own space and slept great. We grilled out every night and the kitchen had everything we needed. Now to the best part, the great outdoors. The back of the house has large windows with a great view of the lake and sliding glass doors out to a wonderful deck that looks out to the lake. The back yard was very large and relatively flat (when riding around the lake on the boat we commented how this house is on a prime spot because most yards were steep with many stairs down to the lake)which was great for the 3 year old, he had plenty of room to run and play. We spent a lot of time around the fire pit that overlooks the lake, and swimming in the lake (which has a great shallow sandy bottom off the yard). The back yard is clear of trees as well which was great, we were able to tan, and there were very little mosquitos! The house is also in walking distance of downtown Chetek, and the neighbors were so nice and friendly. We also did a lot of fishing and did great! I almost didn't want to write a review because we didn't want people to discover this great rental, but the owners deserve a great review because we couldn't have enjoyed their rental more, thank you for opening up your home to us, we will definitely be back!
