We invite you to relax in the serenity of our lake home as you create lifelong memories and enjoy the great outdoors.

You are sure to enjoy our cabin's open floor plan which combines the living room, kitchen and dining room allowing you to unwind and settle in. Our cabin comfortably sleeps eight and offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms. Our lower level family room offers plenty of space to entertain a game of cards, darts or watching a classic movie. Our cabin is fully furnished with linens along with a washer and dryer for your convenience. Pets? Lets talk. Enjoy the sandy beach with a gradual slope for a game of water volleyball, lounging in your lawn chair, watching the eagles and loons, or taking in the scenery this lake offers. Fishing and water sports are a must! Make sure to take a drive into town to discover local golfing, dining, shopping, movie theater, casino, and site seeing. Our cabin awaits you and your family's arrival! PS It's really hard to put in to words what lake home living can offer someone! It's priceless...

One of the most comfortable, relaxing vacation homes at which we've stayed.
Our hosts keep their property top notch: immaculate and well-furnished. The generous deck and screened enclosure were used every day along with the fire pit. The yard sloping down to the lake is well maintained with flowering plantings that add charm. Big Sand Lake is pristine and quiet. We were out in the boat or kayaking or paddle boarding every sunny minute. Next summer we hope to be back for a third year.
It is really wonderful to share our lake home with others who enjoy the beauty of nature and the clear quiet lake. Thank you for taking such great care of our lake home during your visit. We really appreciate it. We look forward to your family visiting next season.
When we arrived at the lake home it was extremely hot and humid and stayed unbearable for the entire week. There was no AC. We also found there were no bath towels. I assumed for this rate AC and bath towels would be provided. I was wrong. The property was clean and well maintained and the private beach was perfect. But I believe if the owners don't provide AC and bath towels they should say so. Also there were many locked cabinets and doors as well as notes about what not to touch or use. I have been renting from Homeaway and VRBO for many years and have never been so disappointed.
Thank you for your review and compliment about the cleanliness and maintenance of our home along with our private beach area.
I am sorry other areas did not meet your expectations. Our listing did not indicate the home was air conditioned nor that towels would be provided. Prior to a guest visit we email a information sheet including what we do provide, location, and boat landing.
Often when guests arrive we do leave a personal note welcoming them to our home. Along with a binder of nice to know information about our home and area attractions.
We too have rented vacation homes. Each have had locked owner cabinets and/or rooms.
Early in the summer we decided to update our furnace and add AC before the next year. Our new furnace with AC has been installed and our listing checklist has been updated to reflect this addition.
At the same time, we also made the decision to offer towels starting next season.
We always welcome email, phone and text communications with our guests anytime before and during their visit.
Quiet and private lake home
Thank you to John and Clo for letting us stay at their lovely home! The home was clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed for our stay, including plenty of outdoor recreations. The lake is beautiful and has earned the name Big Sand Lake, as the swimming off the dock is amazing. I don't think I have ever seen lake water so clear! We enjoyed being close to both Siren and Webster.
A couple points: The home does not have A/C, but we enjoyed moderate weather the week we visited, so it was not uncomfortable. Additionally, there is only 1 television on the lower level, so if you have a travel member who struggles with stairs, this could be a challenge if they like to unwind in front of the TV.
Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations! John and Clo were happy to answer any question that we had and provided clear instructions for a simple check-in/out. We will be back! Thank you!
We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation at our lake home. The clarity of the lake is also something we really appreciate and enjoy for both swimming and fishing.
I am very happy to let you and others know the air conditioning is scheduled to be installed in the next few weeks. The second TV will be added to the living room area for the future.
We look forward to you and your family creating more memories on future vacations at our lake home.

Serene Northwoods experience
Very well appointed house in a wonderful location. Quiet relaxation on a beautiful lake with sand shoreline swimming area.
We will definitely stay again.
Great family fun
We had a very fun week at this lake home. The water was amazingly clear, and we really enjoyed fishing and kneeboarding around the lake. We caught a few sunnies and little northerns and some nice-sized crappies. The weather was wonderful and fortunately not too humid, as the home doesn't have a/c which we missed on the listing. That was the only downside to the property; otherwise it worked really well for our family and had everything we needed. Beautiful home in a very private location. Thanks, John and Clo!
Our lake home is located east of Siren Wisconsin.
