Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: We bought this home years ago to enjoy the north woods of Wisconsin for the beautiful sunsets, swims to the island, skiing and hiking in winter and the gorgeous fall colors. We raised our three daughters here to enjoy the same love of the wilderness and they have canoed and kayaked from Boulder Junction to the Arctic circle and many places in between! And become avid ski racers, snow-shoers and tele-skiers as well. They cherish their memories but now live in the West and we want to share this little slice of peace of mind with others!

Why the Owner Chose Presque Isle, WI, USA:
I went to camp in nearby Mercer and fell in love with the smells of the forests and the peace of the starry nights. When the opportunity came to buy this home we jumped at it and now have many friends whose families have enjoyed it with us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fabulous sunsets, autumn colors that surpass New England, never-ending trails to explore the wilderness, and events that don't end in Manitowish Waters, Presque Isle, Boulder Junction, and Mercer.
