About Kent and Elaine Adams

We love Wisconsin and the area we live in. We purchased our property and have been building and adding details ever since. We moved to the area from Minneapolis in 2000. We raised our two children and have a love for the outdoors. Our life revolves around biking and skiing and enjoying the outdoors. We built our 5100 square foot timber frame home from the ground up. As a builder, it involved attention to detail along with hundreds of hours of labor. Since our children have grown up and moved away, our goal is to share our property with others as a destination get away. We hope to provide a Northwoods experience like no other property in the area.

Kent and Elaine Adams purchased this house in 1989

Beautiful family-friendly property with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this incredible property on a quiet lake! I can see why it has been featured in magazines! The well thought-out design allows multiple families to come together during the day and retreat to their own zones in the evening. The fire pit is conveniently located outside of the screened-in porch, perfect for those who don’t want to brave the mosquitos but want to be near the group. The kitchen makes for the perfect gathering place! The quiet lake is great for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. The paddleboat was also a hit with both adults and kids! We brought a slip ‘n slide and small pool for the kiddos to play in closer to the house when we didn’t want to be down by the lake. Grass is limited, but sufficient for bocce ball, croquet, outdoor movie screen, and our water activities. All in all, a great property for our extended family to make memories! We hope to return!

Vacation paradise

This was our 2nd year up their and our family is making plans to go again next year. It has all anyone could want for a peaceful family vacation. The house is wonderful and the bunkhouse is great for the part of the family that is larger and want there own space at night.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great get away for a group. Beautiful peaceful and quiet lake site. Lake proved to be better than expected for fishing, planed on going to Shell lake to fish but Deep lake provided much fun. Plenty of room to break out in smaller groups. Nice rooms clean and well stocked all around. Kitchen was a highlight. Very easy to cook as a group. Mountain biking was fun and a new distillery nearby was another close fun day trip. Only issues were pretty minor like a battery going out in a smoke director in the middle of the night and the light switching can be a bit confusing. Recommended and we could easily be return customers.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mark, Glad your group had a great time. We fixed the smoke detector and working on the lights. We have tried to simplify the lighting system. Thanks for staying at Deep Lake Lodge.

Beautiful, family-friendly property with every amenity!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a wonderful long weekend at Deep Lake Lodge. Kent and Elaine have really considered every detail at this incredible property. Not only is the inside of the stunning lodge immaculate, they have accounted for everything you might need during your stay. The property is very comfortable inside and out, especially for a large group. There was something for everyone in our large, diverse party -- from adults all the way to four infants/toddlers!

We all particularly enjoyed fishing and boating on the lake and playing in the beautifully manicured lawn. We also used the fire pit and grill every night and enjoyed a fun morning at Perlick Distillery down the road.

Our only complaint is we wish we could have stayed longer! Already planning our return visit -- thanks, Kent and Elaine!

Paradise!! Deep Lake Lodge could not have been more PERFECT for our group of 6 women needing a post Thanksgiving getaway! What a place to re-charge before the Holiday Craziness !! The photos on the VRBO site are amazing BUT don't quite do justice to this comfortable, cozy, serene, private, spacious and gorgeous VRBO! Our time was spent mainly relaxing with some good wine and cooking up some wonderful food together in a gourmet kitchen. Enjoying a fire each evening, more wine, playing a game of pool, curling up with a good book, more wine, going for walks, a trip to Hayward for some shopping, etc... Deep Lake Lodge is perfect for all types of groups and families but if you are a group of women looking for this type of mellow retreat that you will never want to leave, this is the place! We plan to expand our group next time as the Lodge/home can sleep up to 14. (The bunkhouse will be closed until May - and is a WONDERFUL space as well!) Some of our friends enjoy scrapbooking or crafting and some of the group enjoys more outdoor activities i.e. nordic skiing and snow shoeing - perfect place to satisfy a variety of interests for any group! We very much appreciated that the Adams keep this property meticulously maintained and a bonus that it is only a 2 hr. drive from Minneapolis. Going to re-book asap and look forward to our next stay! Thanks so much Kent and Elaine!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group (4 adults and 6 kids) visited this lovely home this past weekend are we were very pleased with everything. The house is lovely, clean and stocked for everything you need. We all enjoyed the house, the lake, the land surrounding the home and the local attractions. We visited the Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary and everyone enjoyed it. There was an entire book of recommendations for places to visit and eat. We ended up at Angry Minnow Brewery in Hayward for a lunch one afternoon and then we visited Tremblay's Sweet Shop, which was a highlight for the kids. The home felt cozy and we were delighted to see all the fall decorations throughout the house. The seasonal touch made it even more fun for our group. The kitchen had everything we needed and easily fit our two families. We would certainly return and I would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. So glad your family enjoyed the lodge. Saw traces of fun that occurred with the kids. The chalkboard was finally used! Fall is a great time to be here but this lodge is really meant for winter! Spread the word!
