About Jim Hoeppner and Judy Olson

We are 3 sisters and 1 brother who along with our mother, decided to build the lake home that we never had as children. We had always vacationed in this area before we decided to build the lake home.

Why Jim Hoeppner and Judy Olson chose Northwest

Clear Lake has very clean water and is quieter than the others lakes on the chain of lakes and because there are a chain of lakes, it makes boating/fishing a real adventure. There is Chain Lake, McCann Lake, Island Lake and then, of course, Clear Lake. We always loved this area and still do.

What makes this house unique

What we love about our home is the expanse of the great room with its unbroken connection to the kitchen, its vaulted ceiling and the view of the lake and woods provide an ambience for a family to enjoy not only their surroundings but each other. We also enjoy that it's only a 50-minute drive from Eau Claire. It's a get away to enjoy tranquil surroundings and water activities.

My family had the pleasure of spending a week at this stunning lake home! It was so great to get away and spend good quality time together. The home is immaculately clean ans beautifully decorated. And the view is incredible! The owners are so kind. Lots of emails back and forth prior to our trip and we were greeted with a kind note and welcome gift! We had a minor issue come up during our stay. The owner was easily reached by phone and promptly addressed the issue and made arrangements to remedy it. We are already talking about returning in the summer when we can better take advantage of the beautiful lake! Thank you to this amazing family for sharing their stunning lake home! Our family highly recommends this home to anyone wanting a great family escape!

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family , my husband and I and our two adult children, loved our week together in this beautiful home. We also brought our dog and she had a great time too. The neighbors did not have a dog so I didn't worry about her going over there to socialize. The home was stocked with everything you might need including all kitchen and bathroom supplies and is immaculately clean. We each had our own room and the beds were very comfortable. My only suggestion would be to have a TV and DVD player on the main level where there is more comfortable seating for movie watching. We brought our 16 foot boat and it was easy to launch on Clear Lake and dock at the house. The chain of lakes are weedy but good for water skiing and fishing. We went up to Island Lake (on the chain) and on the near side of the first island there is a beautiful, sandy area for swimming and throwing the frisbee around. We loved the home and the owners were very helpful with any needs or questions. We hope to return again.

Beautiful home and lake

  • 5 of 5

Our week in early August at this great lake home was amazing. Comfortable, clean, quiet, great furnishings - exactly as the pictures look. The house itself is so spacious and has everything you need and more. The Chain Lakes is a beautiful body of water, great for just cruising around on the boat, there are a couple nice restaurant/bars right on the water as well. The deck is wonderful to sit on morning, afternoon or night. Reservations, check-in and check-out were seamless and flexible. Thanks to the Hoeppner family for sharing your awesome family-oriented home!

Lovely Home By The Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our weekend stay at this lake home! It was much too cold to go out exploring, so we stayed nice and warm by the fire. The kitchen was equipped with every tool you would ever need to make a meal for a large group, and we had a great time cooking, playing games, and enjoying each other's company. We would certainly visit again!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting lake homes with our friends for the last several years through VBRO and while we’ve enjoyed our other rentals this one has set a new bar. To start with the home was immaculate, not a speck of dust to be found. It is also the only rental that truly has a “fully stocked” kitchen; from dish soap, to pot holders, to trash bags, to vegetable peels, to sauce pans & spices they have it all. Also, there are more towels than you could use in a week’s stay.

There were a couple of issues with the water heater & septic but they were taken care of promptly & never interrupted our stay our needs.

My only complaint is that the futon doesn’t seat more people to watch movies in the lower level.

Lastly, the owners are very responsive before & during your stay.

I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a home away from home in the north woods!
