Property description

Inquire about the adjoined north unit offering similar features. VRBO # 686812 Please call or email any questions or to check availability.

The Musky Inn is a historic 110 year old log lodge, rumored to be the oldest building in st. Germain. The lodge sits on the shared property of deer run resort. The inn faces west for spectacular year long sunsets and lake views. The property features the rare find of level frontage to a beautiful beach with sand bottom & shallow access to the lake for great swimming. Huge pier for all your water toys.
The musky inn can be rented several different ways:
* the south unit features 5 bedrooms & 4 full bathrooms.
* the north unit features 5 bedrooms & 3 full bathrooms.
* three additional bedrooms can be ' floated ' to either unit for an additional cost.
The listing here highlights the 5 bedroom set up referred to as the south unit. Please call or email questions about the 8 or 13 bedroom set up or the north unit half of the lodge, if the week you prefer is already booked. The North unit is also on VRBO listing 686812

The lodge has been completely and lovingly restored over 2014. Everything is newly updated, but retains the up north charm & simplicity that vacationers seek. You will be sharing the breathtaking pine woods setting with roaming deer, singing loons, spectacular eagles, ducks & their ducklings. Bring a few bread crumbs along and your children will have an afternoon of fun feeding the eager babies.
The added bonus, not found anywhere else in the area, is a jaw dropping outdoor deck/patio/covered private bar that will be featured on discovery channel's new show 'epic bars'. In the yard you will find a fire pit for your evening marshmallow roasting & storytelling. Walk a few more steps & you find a children's play area, beach, 3 docks, fish house, volleyball court, & basketball hoop. Inquire about a new 14' alumnacraft fishing boat for rent.
Inside you find a spacious great room/ dining room with ample seating for all: gourmet kitchen & pantry stocked with all of your dining & cooking needs: full laundry: satellite tv/ dvd/ blue ray, wi-fi, stereo: 4 full bathrooms: heat and air conditioning!
We have striven to furnish every amenity that you may need, so that when you leave your driveway, no worries will follow and all of your vacation needs will be met and exceeded during your stay at the historic musky inn. Can't wait to see you there!

The Musky Inn is located in an ideal setting, facing west on shores of Big St. Germain Lake. Minutes from a main highway taking you into towns of St. Germain and Sayner. 15 minutes from Minocqua and 20 min to Eagle River. Vilas County has more fresh water lakes than any other county in the United States! The scenery is amazing and the places to explore are endless. Thousands of lakes, rivers and streams. Wildlife, fishing, boating, kayaking, bicycling, snowmobiling, ice fishing, skiing and on and on. Shopping, craft shows, restaurants, nightlife. Many weekends offer festivals and other special events to highlight your trip. One of the favorites in the summer is the Monday Flea Market at the community center in St Germain. The area offers many options for the entire family, or you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of the great north woods.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Grew up in Wisconsin and currently live in De Pere, Wi.

Why the Owner Chose St Germain, WI, USA:
My family had been dreaming of a north woods home for years. Every year our extended family vacationed in the Hayward, Minocqua, & Door County regions but never felt like the place had everything we needed or was big enough for everyone. We knew that we were not the only family with this issue, so we set out to find a place that encompassed everything: We miraculously found this at The Musky Inn: location, space, amenities, and history.The location is ideal: Thousands of lakes surround you, yet you are close to Minocqua, Woodruff, St Germain & Eagle River that have all the amenities of a nice small town.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The lodge's size and history made this an easy choice for our current renovation project. It is one of the most beautiful locations and buildings in the north woods. Make sure you read the history of the Musky Inn beginning with the dream of a French physician Amadee Chabrison.
