Book now!! for September for a fall getaway!!

Fully-equipped, 2400 square foot, year-round home on southeast shore of beautiful, 3300-acre Long Lake. The contemporary-styled exterior houses a custom hard-wood trimmed interior which can accommodate large groups comfortably while still retaining its cozy and intimate feel for smaller parties. (see previous guest comment)

The house is roomy and flowing upstairs and down. The main, upper level, houses two bedrooms and one and a half baths with a large kitchen and adjoining great-room which open to an enclosed three-season porch and an outdoor deck.

The walk-out downstairs has two bedrooms and is served by a quaint kitchenette with an adjoining family room accented by a stunning floor to ceiling, field-stone fireplace. The oversized downstairs bath is senior friendly with a garden, Jacuzzi tub and a separate, enclosed shower with seating. Step out and head straight to lake.

The home is well placed on a shady, two acre, wooded lot adjacent to an open, grassy, lakefront area with a 25' dock for your water toys. Bring your own or rent your water craft, four-wheelers or snowmobiles nearby. We offer a pontoon rental.

Long Lake is pristine, lightly traveled, and absolutely perfect for fishing, pontooning, water-skiing, jet-skiing, sailing, and swimming. Nearby you will easily find great golf courses and other activities with something for every member of the family.

We respect our neighbors and the environment so this is not the place for wild, loud and inconsiderate groups. A great escape!

About Lisa

I grew up in the area and have very fond memories of spending time with our entire family and relatives over the summer.

We purchased the property so our children can have the same great opportunities and memories and hopefully carry on the same tradition to their families as well.

We hope you enjoy yourself and create as many great memories as we have!

Lisa purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Watch the eagles soar from above as their nest is just accross the lake.

Just a short trip up the lake to two great sand bars to enjoy for the day and close by boat to Lincolnwood and Props for great food and cheese curds!

Also, very close by to Dave's Outboard for gas or additional boat rental.

Enjoyed it very much

  • 5 of 5

As usual everything was great. Just a couple of comments on appliances. The toaster doesn't release on one side and the griddle plug does not stay connected all the time. In addition, the lower part of the new walkway(drive) is quite treacherous to walk on. The first part has packed very well but the bottom part is all loose. None of these are big deals, just wanted to let you know of them.

Spring fishing trip (6 guys)

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Long Lake for close to 20 years for our spring fishing trip. We've stayed at the Shadel Haus for 5 years and it as always been great. With 6 guys we needed a place with at least 6 beds and this place easily handles that requirement. It has always been clean and well supplied. It is by far the best accommodations of all the previous places that we have stayed at on Long Lake. The fishing is also an added bonus.

Yearly vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing here for a few years now. We absolutely enjoy the house and the Lake! The house is big enough so everyone can have a bedroom and space. Mosquitos were not too bad this year. Every year they do a few nice updates!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year back to this house. We love it! It's always clean and big enough to accommodate our family. The kitchen has lots of extras incase we forget something. Just bring some mosquito repellent! It is Wisconsin and they are bad this year. The house is on a beautiful part of the lake and is a short drive to good bars!

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Property is a wonderful location on scenic Long Lake. Great fishing for adults (if 24 - 27" walleyes count) and little kids (great pan fishing off the dock). Plenty of wildlife from deer and bear, to the loon family and the local bald eagle. Crayfish and chipmunks were a great hit with the grandkids.

The famous sandbar is a short boat ride away. Grandkids enjoyed canoeing, tubing, and a bit of water sking. They spent enough time in the water they should be growing gills sometime soon.

Property was clean and well maintained. Attached garage was perfect for storing our lawn chairs and bikes. Pictures of the property are accurate. Lisa was a delight to deal with, very responsive and clear as to expectations.

We cooked all our meals and one couldn't ask for better facilities and equipment in a rental property.

If at all possible, we'll be back. Our group ranged from 2 to 60ish, and we all had a great time. Number one granddaughter summed up our feelings, "this is our best vacation spot yet!"
