About Jim Constine
Grew up in Wisconsin and currently live in De Pere, Wi.
Jim Constine purchased this Lodge in 2013
Why Jim Constine chose St. Germain
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.
What makes this Lodge unique
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.

Great stay with wonderful owners! Thank you for an amazing get away
Love this place!
Awesome! Very relaxing vaca. It felt like we stepped back into 1940 with the charm of an old log cabin and yet the modern conveniences of something new. Many people must've put a lot of thought and heart into making sure that it still captured the glory of yesteryear while making it so comfortable and relaxing for us. Very spacious and lots of nooks and crannies for personal space. Pool table was great for the kids. We spent time each night at the fire pit. Big St. Germain Lake has a sandy bottom, shallow for a long way past the peer and water is clear as day. Pontoon was great, new! We spent all our spare time on the huge deck in the sun, or under the shelter/bar when it rained. Kids and adults fished a ton, even caught a couple of big ones from the dock. Kitchen is great but we mostly used the grill. Two refrigerators! Clean, comfortable furniture and beds. We could easily live there and will definitely be back! Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
Multi-Generational Family Vacation Time!
Five families, with 6 children and we never felt crowded! Everything mentioned in the description is spot on. We rented the 3 flex bedrooms, the paddle boards and the fishing boat for the week. Wonderful decision! Along with the community kayaks, playground and a walk out sandy beach we had more than enough entertainment without leaving the lodge. Plus the pool table!
But it's what not mentioned that has us booked for next year already, the sight lines to the lake are amazing, the starter logs for our own fire pit, the full size 2nd refrigerator, the full size laundry, the 4 baths with great water pressure & plenty of hot water (we are talking 16 people here!). The quantity and quality of the kitchen supplies, the amount of pool table gear and the deck and outside lights are just plain fun. So thanks Jim and we'll see you next summer!
Had a great Bachelor party weekend
The place was amazing. The guys and I had a fantastic time. Plenty of room for activities and lots of things to do. Jim was really nice too. He even busted out the guitar and jammed for us one night. Highly recommend of all occasions.
