About ward and jan lundgren

we currently live near madison wi. We love to spend time at our Minocqua house whenever possbile. there isnt a season we dont enjoy. friends who have rented from us come back year after year.

ward and jan lundgren purchased this house in 2005

Why ward and jan lundgren chose Northeast

we chose this property because it had the best location. we are on quiet bay but we can boat to downtown in five minutes. we use the 18 mile bearskin trail, at the end of ourcstreet, for walking, biking, and snowmobiling as much as we use the lake. you can walk to downtown Minocqua in 20 minutes. also we can boat a large chain of 3 lakes. lots to do in minocqua. Movies, bowling, water ski show, and many great restaurants and shops.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property after renting it in July 2005. The owner put it up for sale and we bought it in October 2005. It is serenity for us. When we do want things to do Minocqua is a few minutes away. We love to boat down to lake tomahawk and spend the day. If you havent experienced the northwoods your in for a real treat. you wont want to leave!!!!

Very nice accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodations. The house was appointed very well for our stay. Made our stay for the week very nice. The fire pit was nice to sit around with the kids. The dock is very nice for relaxing in the morning and evening. Plenty of room at the dock to dock our boat for the week as well. The kids enjoyed playing in the water at the shoreline with sand bottom. I would recommend this residence to anyone looking to get away and relax in northern Wisconsin.

The home was very spacious and CLEAN! The pier was brand new and a great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We want to rent it next year too! We loved the quiet bay and the fact that we could swim right next to the pier. The kitchen was so well equipped so we made most of our meals and ate on the deck. The beds were very comfortable, sheet and towels were very nice.

Great house and setting. One little problem.

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed the house and location on the lake. A great time. My only complaint was that they deducted $100 from our deposit to replace their keurig coffee maker, which they claim was broken when they inspected it after our stay. I am confident it was working when we left the house and we did nothing whatsoever to mishandle the device. Unfortunately, the owner had discarded and replaced the keurig before they even emailed me to inform me of their intentions to take $100 out of deposit. They state the lid to the machine wouldn't close...perhaps we could have troubleshot the problem over the phone...but instead they disposed of machine, bought a new one, charged me $100, and emailed me citing they would have appreciated me disclosing it was broken. Again, I loved our stay but don't appreciate at all how this situation was handled. I was offered $100 credit towards house rental if we stayed again in the future...perhaps this is an admission that they believe me when i say that I didn't break their coffee maker. Again, it was all in how it was handled. No discussion...just $100 deducted.

On more positive note, House was beautiful and comfortable though, with a great dock, fire pit, and plenty of yard. Very well appointed home in an area of lake with what I though was the best fishing.

Owner's Response: Thansk for your response. We did have to replace immediately because we have back to back rentals. I did send you a video of the broken keurig. I found the cheapest one possible to replace it. We did speak on the phone about the handle being broken. We have had many keurigs and non have broken in this way. I offered a future discount to you to be gracious to you. We havent had to replace anything from renters so this was a first.

Great Location, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 5 small children this past weekend. Great location that is a short drive or boat ride from town. Located on a quiet bay without a lot of boat traffic.

The cottage is well stocked with cooking utensils, spices and dishes. AC units located in many rooms make it comfortable even when the weather gets very warm.

Very clean and lots of room for sitting around comfortably, eating, and getting everyone there own space to sleep.
