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 New Auburn

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.

Summer Vacation 2017

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very spacious and great for our 2 families (4 adults, 4 kids). The water/lakes were absolutely beautiful, clean and great for tubing and other water sports.

The owners were great to work with and very accommodating. Everything was available for us to use, which was great! Especially in the kitchen.

The cabin was warm and inviting with a great deal on site to keep you busy between water sports and the fire pit and outside hiking etc.

Definitely 4 stars plus!!!!

Just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This is a place well worth staying at. The owners seem to have thought of everything to make your visit as nice as possible. The only thing that we were disappointed in was we couldn't swim off shore as we had some non swimmers because of lily pads and weeds. But there is a lovely beach a short ride away

Terrific lake home

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific lake home to rent. Of all of the places that I have rented this one by far was the most clean and well stocked home with tons of space. Jim and Judy thought of everything right down to a thank you note and gift. We also had a great time on the chain of lakes. We were able to fish, water ski and boat across the lake to the Backwoods Bar and Grill. Thank you for renting out your lake home for others to enjoy.

Spacious and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The cabin is located at the end of a road and is very quiet. It has plenty of space and is very comfortable. The four bedrooms are all good sized & three of them are on the main level. We had eight adults, three kids, and two dogs, and we had plenty of space. It was also well stocked with supplies. The kitchen had everything we needed and more!

The only slightly disappointing things about this rental for us were: 1) there isn’t a good spot to swim directly from the shore. The water near the dock is full of lily pads but there is a raft close by. 2) We weren’t very successful at catching larger fish. We caught plenty of smaller pan fish (especially right off of the dock, which the kids loved!) but no big ones. 3) The wifi was pretty spotty. At times, it was very good but most of the time, it was quite slow. It would have been nice to be able to rely on it a little better. But none of these minor inconveniences would keep us from coming back, which we’re planning on doing next year!

Also, the owners are great to work with. They are thorough with instructions and are very responsive. If you are looking for a cabin that is spacious and quiet, you have found the right place!

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!
