About the Property

Two Lakefront 2 BR Cottages in northern Wisconsin - Pets Welcome

Situated on the sandy shores of 500 acre Oxbow Lake, the 'Walleye' and the 'Musky' cottages each offer two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, living room and baths with showers. Both the Walleye and Musky Cottages sleep 4, with 4 twin beds total (and the option to turn one set in each cabin into a King bed). Within 50 feet lies the beach and dock area where a fishing boat with trolling motor awaits the walleye, muskie & pan-fishing action of aesthetically beautiful Oxbow Lake. Guests are welcome to BYO boat - the landing is directly across the lake and plenty of room to tie yours up.

The lakefront is a family-friendly area with a gentle slope and no steep drop-offs in the water. You might also take one of the kayaks or canoe to explore Oxbow's many bays and islands. Presque Isle, known as 'Wisconsin's Last Wilderness' offers limitless opportunities for hiking, biking, wildlife viewing & birding. Located within the immediate area are the 3000 acre Catherine Wolter Conservancy Area, the Van Vliet Old Growth Hemlocks, the Ottawa National Forest, the North Lakeland Discovery Environmental Center and the WinMan Trails. All offer miles of mapped hiking and biking trails and self-guided nature walks some with programs that will enhance your wildlife experience.


'Presque Isle,' French for 'almost an island' offers many other large and small water bodies for varied fishing and water sporting activities. Evenings you can gather around the outdoor fire pit, perhaps after a dinner out at one of the several fine supper clubs in the Presque isle area, or engage in some friendly family rivalry with a badminton match or board game. You will come to savor the laid-back Northwoods life style and will end your vacation refreshed and ready to return again soon.

Presque Isle is nestled in the northwest corner of Vilas county, and within the 220,000-acre AmericanLegion State Forest. Right across the the state line is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Ottawa National Forest with over a million acres of explorable land. This is a quiet community that respects recreational boater/skier/tuber. Fishing and anything water-related are the natural highlights; with a plethora of awesome day trips, most notably waterfalls, Lake Superior, and hiking trails.

 

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Presque Isle, WI, USA:
The 'Walleye' & 'Musky' offer a traditional Northwoods experience with reasonably modern amenities, without being 'just like home.'
