About the property

4-5 Bedrooms - Sleeps 12

This unique home is nestled in the east bay of Otter Lake. With 50 ft. of frontage is perfect for swimming or docking your toys off the pier Enjoy plenty of fun on this 90 acre (motorized) lake that is quiet and uncongested. If water isn't your first summer choice than hop on your ATV's and enjoy the best trails in Wisconsin, including the Parrish Highland right from the front door, we also have some of the most beautiful walking, hiking and horse trails. End your day with some relaxation and old fashion bon fire with pudgy pies and smores.

Winter time is the best!! Enjoy snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing and in the evening enjoy a beautiful natural fireplace to warm your toes and your souls.

The Wisconsin north woods are ideal for any outdoors interests you may have so come and have some fun.

The home has 5 bedrooms. 3 on the lower level and 2 upstairs that include an additional sitting room for the older children to hang out.

If a bigger lake is something you enjoy we are only 4 miles from either Pelican Lake or Post Lake (that's where we enjoy longer rides up the Wolf River).

Either way we have created many memories at this home and hope that you do too. - Enjoy!!

nice clean place that has room for plenty of people

  • 4 of 5

Place has everything you need and the location is excellent. We did a lot of ATV riding, trails are all over and well marked. The lake is nice, we caught mostly pan fish. Did some swimming off the pier, nice clean water. Had never been to that area and was impressed with it, totally. If it had at least some basic TV would be nice, but everything you want to do up north can be done from this place. It can accommodate a lot of people. We had a great time!!!!!!

Grandkid vacation

  • 4 of 5

Large homey house with nice decorations. Only downfall was the one bathroom for multiple people. Plenty of room for us to spread out. Loved the lake, smaller but very nice with no hazards. No beach but the swimming area was well enjoyed by the kids. Nice small town, easy to walk to. Beautiful property with wooded areas and another smaller pond. We had a great time.

A Great Week - An Awesome Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with our family at this awesome rental home! We had 11 adults and 2 children in our group, and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the very private dock and fire pit. We spent a lot of time hanging out near the lake. There was only one bathroom, but it wasn't as big a deal as we thought it might be. The best thing was that there were beds for everyone. The house was much bigger than it appeared in the pictures! Thank you for sharing this wonderful property with us!

Late winter in Elcho Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

My dad was from Elcho and passed away at 94. We had a Celebration of Life after his burial at Elcho Cemetery. The house was perfect for us to gather after the great luncheon at Tattletales and the grandkids had a ball sledding the fresh 8" of snow. We ate leftovers for dinner and the home is roomy and has a nice sized remodeled bath. Property was clean. No big deal but make sure you bring towels because linens are not towels I guess. We stopped at WalMart in Antigo and grabbed some when we saw they were not there. Don't take it as a negative because the pluses are so good. Heating was good as well.

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with the house. Kids had a blast catching Pike right out the back door and other area lakes were a real blast ice fishing too. Would recommend any family or group come for a stay.

About Kathy Scherger

Greg & I have been married 20 years. We have 4 children, 6 grandchildren and our beloved dogs Abby & Jersey. We currently live in Richfield, WI. We have contemplated selling this home but after our children remind us of all the past memories and future memories to be made we have decided to allow others to enjoy it as much as we have.

Kathy Scherger purchased this house in 2002

Why Kathy Scherger chose Elcho

We have been vacationing in this area since we were children. We enjoy the 'Lake Getaways' including fishing, snowmobiling and 4 wheeling. We have made a lot of friends in the surrounding areas and enjoy spending fun filled times with plenty of relaxation and laughter!
