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.

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!

AMAZING PLACE FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

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!
