Property description

Family Fun on the Water:
Included in this rental: Two lightweight Bell canoes, two Pelican kayaks, an Alumacraft 14ft fishing boat, life vests, and a RAVE water bouncer.

General Location:
Northwestern WI. Located on Lake Minnesuing about 4 miles from town of Lake Nebagamon, Wisc. This three bedroom cottage is a Wisconsin cabin classic. Located on a 500 acre lake 30 miles south from Superior and 25 miles north of Hayward in Northwestern Wisconsin. Its in Douglas County 130 miles straight north of Eau Claire, Wisconsin with County Highway access to cabin from four-lane State Hwy 53.

Lake Description:
Lake Minnesuing is a 500 Acre clean deep lake fed by the springs of the Bois Brule State Forest. The lake has 6 miles of shoreline, 2 miles of which is unimproved Brule State Forest. The lake has a 31 acre island, public access, Sidelines Bar Bait and Grill, the famous Minnesuing Acres resort along its sloping pine-filled lakeshore.

Cottage Description:
This cottage sleeps 6 in the main building. There are three bedrooms. Interior is trimmed in fir, cedar, and pine beams so you know you're 'up north'. A cedar paneled boat house that sleeps 4 - 6 children/teens on 2 bunk beds and 2 single cots is also available for an additional fee (see Rate Notes).

There are three eating areas - one next to kitchen, a second on large deck overlooking lake, and the third in a large screen porch (doubles as board-game room after dinner). Overhead fans and Andersen windows for ventilation during the day with two natural gas Jotul Finnish fireplaces to keep it warm and cozy on cool evenings.

Extra Sleeping:
The Boathouse has extra sleeping for 4 -6 children/teens and is situated just a few feet off the lake. It has old cabin charm with new Herbster Wisc. wide plank cedar flooring, open beam ceiling with fan. Boathouse was built in the 50's and remodeled in 2005. The cottage and boathouse are surrounded by Norway and White pines - some 100+ feet high. No plumbing in boathouse. Bring your own sleeping bags!

The cottage is located on shores of Lake Minnesuing. Its a traditional northern Wisconsin lake with tall pines, eagles, an island, many old fashioned cabins and the famous Minnesuing Acres resort. There is good swimming with a hard bottom and gradual change in depth on one side of the 40 foot dock. Other side of dock has structure for bass, crappie, and bluegill fishing. Next to the Boathouse is a large outdoor rock fire ring for campfires on the lakeshore. Southern end of the lake is the Brule State Forest - good bass fishing along the forest's 2 mile unimproved lakeshore frontage. If you have your own boat it can be put in at nearby no-fee access launch located on S. Halberg Rd.

Nearby are three golf courses (Norwood is 1/2 mile away), a bar bait and grill restaurant on the north end of the lake (Sidelines), and the famous Bois Brule River is just 3 miles to the East for access to trout fishing and canoeing.

This cottage is just 4 miles west of town of Lake Nebagamon. The town has a grocery store with gas pumps, a bank, two typical Wisconsin bar & grilles, a restaurant, Post Office, car wash, churches ,laundromat, and one of the oldest Dairy Queens in the country.

Access to Outdoor Adventure:
The cities of Duluth & Superior are only 30 miles from the cottage. Lake Superior is 17 miles to the north and there are State Parks nearby. This area is not only the headwaters of the St. Croix River but not far from the Apostle Islands, Bayfield, the Northshore and some of the country's best backcountry bicycle trails in the 1.5 million acre Chequamegon National Forest.

This cottage is very well maintained and comfortable. It has all necessary utensils, cookware, dishes, supplies, etc to prepare meals, gas grill, comfortable beds with linens, table seating for 8+, and bathroom with towels and soft water tub/shower. Its a place to make vacationing an easy fun experience when gathering for family dinners or having a late afternoon beverage as the sun filters onto the deck thru pine boughs.

If you're looking for a well maintained lake cottage vacation this is a good place to unwind while having an Up North adventure. You're sure to create memories enjoying new cottage facilities, big pine ambiance and area amenities. Its a perfect place for family, a couple, or friends to get together to live, laugh and enjoy the wonderful Wisconsin outdoors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a family of 4 living in Hudson WI. We have enjoyed many years of enjoyment at our Lake Minnesuing cottage sharing outdoor experiences with family and friends! Our available time spent here has become less and less due to kid's summer jobs, sports, and other commitments. We decided on VRBO as a way to keep the cottage in use and provide an opportunity for others to experience the lovely northern Wisconsin wilderness!

Why the Owner Chose Lake Nebagamon, WI, USA:
Its an ideal location for access to a beautiful, clear lake, as well as, the Bois Brule River, and northern MN and WI (Duluth, Northshore, Superior, Bayfield, Apostle Islands, etc) and does not have the tourist congestion of some other vacation areas.
