Property description

In a time when many vacation places are over-built and overcrowded, The King's Cottage offers the perfect retreat amid the quiet of the beautiful North Woods. The King's Cottage is built on 80 wooded acres crossed by nature trails and enclosing two spring-fed lakes. The modern, wood-paneled cabin sleeps four comfortably in its two bedrooms, but the party can be larger if a couple of you want to camp on the campsite beside the smaller lake.

There is enough right on the property to fill your day. If you have brought some reading matter you may just feel like relaxing in the rocking chairs on the screened porch. You may want to fish for bluegill and bass from a rowboat on the smaller lake, or from a canoe on the larger one. You may want to walk through the woods or sit quietly on the overlook bench. Keep your eyes open for wildlife - deer, coyote, red fox, beaver, and bear, as well as grouse and many other kinds of birds, call this home! In the winter there's cross-country skiing.

Off the property, half a mile's walk will take you to Bearskin Creek for trout fishing, or the Bearskin Bike Trail. The Pinewood Country Club, with its eighteen-hole golf course and Dinner Theatre, is two miles away. The shops and restaurants of Minocqua, Tomahawk and Rhinelander are about 15 miles away in various directions. As one of our satisfied guests put it, 'This is a great place to get away from it all and still be able to get back.'
