The King's Cottage - ~A~ Very Quiet Northwoods Retreat

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

The property is located equidistant from Minocqua, Rhinelander and Tomahawk. It abuts the Bearskin

State Bike Trail. It is near the American Legend State Forest and Willow Flowage(over 6000 acre Canadian wilderness like lake with nearly 100 miles of sand beach and wooded shoreline).

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, cozy cottage, and peaceful surroundings. We had a great stay at the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the property.

The cottage was very clean, well stocked and everything was in working order.

Northern Serenity

  • 5 of 5

If you want a peaceful, secluded place to call home on vacation, stay here. The expanse of forest is divine and the lakes serene. I took my elderly dog and had a very relaxing time. She forged the paths to the lakes and the overlook during the days and slept and snored happily next to the warmth of the wood stove in the evenings. The bed is super comfy, cabin very clean, few bugs in September, the front lake is surrounded by a beautiful boggy shoreline. Loved every moment.

Recent stay at Kings Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Richard did a good job of communicating and sending info for our stay. Pictures on site doesn't show road directly in front of cabin separating it from walk to lake, but not much traffic. Fairly clean, but with dogs being allowed, you can't get around the subsequent hair especially on the futon in main cabin. Facilities were in good condition, and firewood available. Thanks for a nice stay.

Very wilderness

  • 4 of 5

I went for peace and quiet and got it. I enjoyed hiking the trails. The front lake was real beautiful in the morning and listening to nature. I couldn't find the back lake at first, but did after I called Frank. It too was beautiful. The cabin was nice and cozy.
