About Dave and Debbie Kowenstrot

Dave and Debbie stay in the cabin just north and are normally there during your stay to address any issues or questions you may have.

Dave and Debbie Kowenstrot purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Dave and Debbie Kowenstrot chose Wisconsin

We love Little Spider Lake for the beauty and convenience of the area. We enjoy seeing the deer, fox, loon, eagles, ducks and fish on a regular basis. A short ride to Woodruff or Minocqua offers unique shopping and dining opportunities.

What makes this cabin unique

Most of the time, we enjoy staying by the lake to take advantage of the relaxing atmosphere but also enjoy being able to walk, bike, swim, boat and hike. We are also on the snowmobile trail so winter is a fun time too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thanks for your hospitality last week. We really enjoyed our stay at the Spider Lake Cabin. My family was very comfortable. The kids enjoyed fishing and swimming from your dock. The whole family had a fun time riding our bikes along Schuman Road. I was able to run along the snowmobile trails.

Minocqua was a great place to visit. We had dinner at the Thirsty Whale, bought Fudge at Dan's Fudge Shop and rode the Bearskin Trail. We'd love to come back next year

Had a wonderful stay. Cabin was the perverbial "CLEAN AS A WHISTLE".

Nice covered deck to be able to sit out some rainy times. Nice firepit for some relaxing campfires. Grandson had a ball in the huge sandbox.

Had a great stay. Thank you!

perfect up north vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we decided to rent a cabin in the minocqua area we came across the D2 cabin online. When we read all the previous reviews we couldn't believe anyplace could be that good. It was, the inside of the cabin was super clean and everything was in perfect condition and the outside was great. We really enjoyed relaxing on the deck or around the fire pit and if the bugs came out off to the gazebo we went. We also spent a lot of time swimming with our lab Lucy in the lake,a really nice sand beach by the dock. I brought my boat and fished six different lakes in the area and caught many smallmouth, walleye and panfish. With so many towns nearby there was always something to do, we really enjoyed the St Germain flee market and the snowshoe baseball in Lake Tomahawk. Not enough time to see everything in the two weeks we were there. Can't wait to get back. Chuck, Sharon and Lucy.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful! It was very clean and comfortable for 3 adults and 3 kids. It was great to have the washer/dryer in the nice basement, wi-fi for an additional small fee, and direct tv which the kids loved. The location was great for going north to other lakes or south into town.

Excellent, love, Dave and Debbie super nice!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying at D2cabin, and we were super amazed. Dave and Debbie were so helpful and super nice. The cabin was clean, clean, clean. We could not ask for anything nicer. Did I say clean, the cabin was immaculate. :) The cabin has everything and is super modern and comfortable. Love sitting on the deck and drinking coffee in the morning, or relaxing in the evening while the girls made smores over the campfire. The lake was so nice and clear, and so much fun. Love that the owners are dog friendly, and we were able to bring our two girls(dogs) and they had fun along with my daughter and her friend, we were in the lake multiple times a day. Cannot wait to come back next year. It was a great week of fun and relaxation. Thank you so very much!!!

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was very clean and modern. Owners were wonderful, friendly and helpful. They thought of many little things that made the cabin homey and really seem to care that their renters have a great stay. Although it is not located on the lake shore, it was just a short walk to the dock and the water. Our dog loved swimming.

Car: recommended

The cabin is located just north of Minocqua/Woodruff off Hwy 51. This vacation area is filled with locally owned shops, golf, zoo and many lakes. The cabin is right on the snowmobile trail and bike trails run nearby. Many restaurants, bars and activities. The best part of the area is the peaceful, beauty of the lake and woods that surround our cabin. We enjoy walking and biking the scenic road or through the woods on the cabin property. Sitting on the pier, watching the sunset, ducks, loons and the eagles that hunt this lake is always a treat. Fishing and boating is popular.
