About the property

Southwest exposure on pristine Seven Mile Lake in the Nicolet Forest!


Looking for a 'back to nature' retreat with family or friends? Look no further than this home on Seven Mile Lake. This cedar sided walk-out ranch style home sleeps 12-18 people with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. With 2 master suites, a bunk room with 3 sets of cedar log bunk beds and a full sized futon and 2 additional guest rooms, there's room for everyone!

The upper level has a master suite, guest room with a queen bed, a second guest room with a pull-out full bed, and a full bath. A fully equipped kitchen with sit-up bar, dining table, couches and 32' TV makes the living space enjoyable for all.

3 large, 2 panel sliding glass doors give you the feeling that you're outside and a deck that runs the full length of the home allows you to visit, cook and dine in the 200' treetops.

Gas fireplaces on both floors add to the Northwoods feel, but you're not going to need them on - radiant heating in the basement floors keep the home exceptionally warm even on the coldest days!

Washer and dryer are available for use in the laundry room that connects the upper level master bath with the garage entry/kitchen.

The lower level has a second master suite, dry bar with access to a utility sink and second full size refrigerator, sectional couch with 55' TV and Blu Ray player, and our amazing children's bunk room with 3 sets of cedar log bunk beds, a full size futon and an 'old school' TV with Atari games. A dart board and bimini ring game in the rec room provide indoor fun after a day on the lake or trails and a cabinet filled with board games will help pass time on rainy days.

Basic DirecTV programming is available in the upper and lower living rooms. WiFi access is available for $12/Gig.

Towels and bedding are provided, as are basic supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, ziploc bags, tin foil, wax paper, dish soap and laundry detergent. We hope this makes shopping and packing easier, but we ask that if you use the last of an item that you replace it before leaving.

Seven Mile Lake is a Class A Musky Lake, with prize-winning fish caught just 200 yards off our pier. The home is situated on a bay on the northeast side of the lake and a gradual sand bottom entry makes it perfect for young children. The property boasts over 350' of frontage, but add that to the national forest land adjacent to the property and your play area goes on forever!

In summer, take advantage of the evening sun at the beachfront fire pit. In winter, travel the snowmobile trails on the west side of the lake or the Nicolet cross country ski trails just east of the home.

WIFI: WiFi is available for $12/Gig. If you would like to add this service, please indicate how much data you would like to purchase. There is cell phone coverage on the property, though it may be spotty depending on carrier/exact location. There is also a land line that can be used as needed.

WINTER VISITORS: The driveway has a curved hill. 4wd vehicles are recommended. If you need to park at the bottom sleds are available in the garage to help with car unloading. Be sure to take a few runs down the driveway when you're done!

SNOWMOBILERS: Depending on your trailer size, you may want/need to park in a nearby trail lot and sled in. Once at the house, enjoy the 2 car heated garage as you finish one ride and prep for the next!

SUMMER VISITORS: As with most places in the Northwoods, the home does not have central air. There are, however, ceiling or standing fans in every room. Cross breezes and fans should help keep you cool when you're not on the lake.

WATER SPORTS: Our dock is available for you to tie up your pontoon, ski or fishing boat. Jet skis are not allowed.

About Kellie Kalberer

Jon and Kellie and their 3 children live in southern Wisconsin. They spent years looking for the 'perfect' Northwoods home and finally found it. And now they want to share this magnificent property with you.

Kellie Kalberer purchased this house in 2014

Why Kellie Kalberer chose Three Lakes

The towering hemlocks and crystal clear water give this property an amazing sense of privacy. The beauty of the adjacent national forest land is magnificent.

What makes this house unique

The southwestern exposure and sandy beach is very unique in the Northwoods, especially in a rental. Watch the kids make sand castles as you cook dinner over the lakeside fire pit and tell ghost stories as you watch the sunset.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend at Seven Mile lake and could not have asked for a better place to stay, especially with a large group of people. Perfect lake for water skiing and there is a very nice boat launch right by the cottage.

Wonderful family vacation sharing time together at the "Jewel in the Forest"

  • 5 of 5

Kellie's lake home was very nice and accommodating for our family of nine. The big pantry was greatly appreciated for all the food items, etc. we brought. The sandy lake frontage was great for the grandchildren and the boathouse very easy to use with getting kayaks in and out and storing things. Our sons and families love campfire times together and that was an added joy to be down by the lake. One son brought his ski boat so tubing, fishing, and skiing where a big part of the week for the kids. A couple of nights of games and relaxing and eating out on the spacious deck made for a very enjoyable time had by all family members.

Thank you Kellie for being very helpful with any questions or concerns I might have had as we started our rental journey.

Truly a "Jewel in the Forest"!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Kellie's lake home! We are the grandparents, and invite our children and grandchildren each year to enjoy a week together. A large lovely lakeside home in a secluded area is just what our family needs, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life...and a chance to reconnect with everyone. Upon entering, we noticed the home was very clean. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of them. The linens were divine and plenty of towels provided. Cell phone service was spotty, but we didn't care.... we were there to relax and enjoy! The location is not hard to find, and the National Forest adjacent gives the kids plenty of shoreline and sandy beach to enjoy and trails to explore. We found Seven Mile Lake to be very clean and quiet. The home is well equipped and we wanted for nothing... we cooked all our meals there and loved eating on the huge deck in the treetops! We had a couple rainy days but there is plenty of games provided for the kids and adults. The paddle boat and kayaks were a hit with everyone!

Kellie was very easy and accommodating to work with. I highly recommend this property for those that want a great experience in the forest.

Great private getaway with beautiful lake frontage

  • 5 of 5

The home was well kept with plenty of space for a larger group. The lake frontage was nice sandy frontage. It was also fairly private being next to the national forest. There's only one close by neighbor, but the way the homes are arranged you'd never even notice. Beautiful views everywhere on this property, we saw several bald eagles and a loon hanging out near the pier. The boat house was nice too to keep the fishing poles and kids lake toys during our stay. Highly recommend!
