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 Northeast

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

What a beautiful house and view. The house was fully stack with anything you simply think about, very spacious and clean. We did not have to think of things to do, so many games, activities and dvd's. For sure will come back again to this location, loved it.

A relaxing vacation at an affordable, off-peak rate!!The house was immaculate and the owner very responsive. Beds and linens made for an exceptional nights sleep.

Fantastic views of the lake!!

Fireplace provided a warm and charming close to the ending.

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting the property again in the summer.

Such a fabulous spot tucked away in the trees!

  • 4 of 5

My family and a few close friends of mine rented Kellie's place to celebrate my wedding! It was absolutely perfect for the intimate ceremony in the trees we had planned, and her beautiful home provided such a nice space for us to visit and spend the weekend together.

Just as a reference, we were 11 adults and 2 children under the age of 2 occupying the space. Each king bedroom has a roll away bed that we utilized to sleep the 11 adults, as the bunks are only allowed for children. Also, as it was a weekend after they received a bit of snow, so the road out to the house was a little tricky to maneuver - just keep that in mind for travelers coming in the snowy months.

If you guys added a sauna or hot tub that would just add to the allure of your lovely home amongst the trees!

Thank you Kellie for sharing your home with us. Maybe we'll be back again some day!!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 8 adults and 4 kids and there was plenty of space. Loved the rustic decor! Kids loved the bunk bed room. Comfy beds! Owners were easy to get ahold of if there was any questions. Only wish there was a stereo system upstairs and downstairs. And deck lights were not working which was hard to grill. And maybe leave instructions on how to work the Atari system. But will definitely rent again!

Very beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This home is everything the description says it is. It is very beautiful. The lake and beach area is perfect for a family or couples. The fire pit is very nice and everything is very clean. My only complaint is we were required to take our garbage with us or to a local landfill. I feel this should be done by the cleaning people and not by tenants. Other than that, no complaints.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, we do not have a better option for trash. I wish we did. We have to do the same thing when we stay at the home. As you know, the home is in a rural area and roadside collection service is not available, and the transfer station for our area is only open 3 days a week in summer, 2 days a week the rest of the year. The home sleeps 18, so laundering all the sheets during the short cleaning window is impossible. Because of that, our cleaner takes all dirty bed linens with her, does them off site, and returns with clean linens at each cleaning. Her car is full and there is not room for garbage, and cleaning dates may not correspond with the days the transfer station is open. And even if it was a day that they were open, we'd have to increase rates to cover her additional time and delay check-in time for guests since extra time would be needed for the garbage run. I hope this helps you understand why we ask guests to either take their trash to the transfer station or with them. It's always great to escape and "get away from it all" but sometimes that means foregoing some of the services of the city.

Beautiful cabin - all the amemities!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of a few couples and young children just returned from a weekend at this cabin and it was amazing. It's tucked away in the woods, the neighbors are hidden from view, and was a beautiful drive with all the fall colors starting. It looked very nice in pictures but much better in person - a large yard with plenty of room to run around, a nice pier and clear, shallow water. The fire pit was right next to the water (a little bit of a walk uphill on many steps to get to the house but not too bad, just would be harder for older adults or young kids), plenty of firewood, and the boathouse was stocked with kayaks, paddle boat and life jackets. The deck was HUGE! The cabin itself was beautiful! Very spacious with plenty of place to store all our stuff - the two master bedrooms were very large and the bunk room would be great if you have older kids older kids. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchenware you could ever need. I'm a bit of a linen snob and loved that all the towels and bedding was very high quality. I could imagine this in colder weather, curled up by the fireplace, as well.You can tell the owners put a lot of time and money into making this cabin feel like home, and every detail was covered. We've rented probably 10 VRBO cabins in this price point before and this was the best, by far. We can't wait to plan a trip for next year!
