WELCOME TO BIG PINE!
Just minutes from Minocqua, this recently renovated, well maintained, and tastefully furnished log home features 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths with 160 feet of level, sandy beach frontage on Lake Shishebogama. Here you can enjoy the best the Northwoods has to offer. Where every comfort and amenity is taken care of, and the length of the day is not measured in hours but in memories.
Big Pine is a secluded getaway yet so close to everything that once you reach the heart of Minocqua, you're just a short distance to our doorstep. We have a large circle driveway with plenty of parking. The full log home has been updated and improved under new ownership reflecting a desire to provide our guests with a special vacation experience.
THE MAIN FAMILY LEVEL
The main level of the home is where the family will congregate. There’s a large kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher) and a breakfast bar and all the amenities for cooking delicious lakeside dinners. The dining room leads to a screened-in porch where you can watch the sunrise, sip your morning coffee, read a book or enjoy a late afternoon cocktail overlooking the lake. The large living room has a river rock hearth with wood burning stove , a large flat screen TV (with Direct TV with some premium channels), and plenty of windows to soak up the panorama of the lake and surrounding woods. A ½ bath and full laundry facilities complete the main floor. Most necessities are provided, including linens, blankets, pillows, towels, and initial paper products. There is a fully stocked kitchen with dishware, pots, pans, and cooking utensils. There is an outdoor grilling patio with a charcoal Weber grill.
THE MASTER SUITE LEVEL
The upper level has three bedrooms and carpeting throughout. The master bedroom overlooks the lake and has a queen-size bed, dresser, large closets and separate dressing area. There is a smaller TV in the master with Direct TV. The second bedroom also has a queen-size bed, walk in closet, dresser and views of the lake. The cozy third bedroom has a twin trundle bed for the kids and plenty of closet space. The upstairs bath is unique with a claw-foot tub for a relaxing bath and a hand-held sprayer.
THE LOWER WALK-OUT LEVEL
The lower level has a set of bunk beds and a sitting area. A full bathroom with a spacious walk-in natural stone shower and vanity is perfect for after-lake clean-ups. This level leads directly to a covered cement patio and steps to the lake.
We have satellite internet for checking e-mails but not adequate for streaming. Verizon cell reception is good. There is a large HDTV in the living room and a smaller TV in the master bedroom (Satellite Direct TV), Nintendo Wii, board games, etc. For more diversions, Minocqua is around 10 minutes away, with many restaurants, food stores and Northwoods attractions to choose from. Both Satellite TV and Internet may be unreliable due to weather and other factors.
Our private wooded property stretches 13 acres with the log house and lakefront comprising 2 acres. Recently installed lighted blues stone steps take you to a lake side deck, fire pit (for those s'mores) and spacious aluminum dock with two built in swivel chairs and table for food/drink. There is electricity in the dock area. We have 160 feet of level frontage on Lake Shishebogama perfect for all kinds of water activities with a sandy area next to our dock suitable for wading, swimming and young children. The lake system totals close to 1000 acres for your swimming, fishing (musky, bass, walleye, pike) and boating enjoyment. We provide a 14-foot aluminum rowboat, a kayak and a canoe for your use during your stay. An outdoor grill and new grilling patio in the front of the home gives a convenient place to BBQ.
