About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home Located On A 15 Acre Lake with Eau Claire River Frontage

This property is absolutely unique - with close to 200 acres of woods which include both a Private 15 Acre Lake and Eau Claire River frontage for you to enjoy. It has something to offer everyone during all seasons in Northern Wisconsin. Grab some snowshoes, a pair of cross-country skis, or take a stroll on the wooded trails encircling this lake or leading to the Eau Claire River. Enjoy a peaceful kayak ride on the lake, go for a swim or lounge on the dock with zero interruptions from the outside world. Drive just a few miles up the road and enjoy a three hour float or kayak adventure on the Eau Claire River with a convenient exit off the river right on the property.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2,000 sq ft home is located right on the lake with your own private beach, dock and raft including the use of a couple of kayaks, a canoe and rowboat. Gather on the outdoor patio for some grilling and a campfire and watch the sunset reflect off the water and surrounding pines.

Head inside for some socializing after the sun goes down in the spacious, open area kitchen, dining room and living room. There's a place for everyone! This modern kitchen has brand new appliances and is fully stocked with everything you need. A dining room table that seats 8 and center island provide adequate seating for everyone. Hang out in the lower level living room to watch T.V. or enjoy a view of the lake from the windows of a three season porch. Beat out the cold and cozy up in front of the gas stove and/or wood stove on chilly nights or during the fall and winter months. Enjoy air conditioning as well on those hot summer days.

You'll have the best view in the house in the master bedroom that overlooks the lake through double sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious deck; the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee and watch the sunrise.

The house sleeps seven people with three bedrooms featuring a queen bed, full size bed, bunk beds, and a single bed, but with a roll-out bed, a cot and use of couches, it can accommodate at least eleven. There are two full bathrooms, one upstairs with a shower and one downstairs with a tub/shower including a washer and dryer for your convenience.

You are right in the middle of all the major recreational towns that provide day excursions, shopping or festivals, with Hayward, Bayfield and Superior/Duluth all within an hour drive.

If peace and quiet in the Northwoods is what you are looking for - this is the perfect lake house for you!

Mary's Lakehaven is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well-decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed the house itself with its many "spaces" for gathering to cook, to relax, play games, and interact with family and friends. The porch on the upper floor provided a comfortable area to enjoy the view and lake breezes on hot days, and we used the glassed in/screened in porch on the ground floor when it rained. The kitchen was spacious, allowing many cooks in the kitchen. Several outdoor spaces were ideal for sunning and/or sitting in the shade. Our nephews and nieces liked swimming out to the raft and kayaking. I enjoyed walking each morning on the many trails surrounding the house. The owners were very attentive to our needs, yet provided us with privacy.

Our extended family loved this place for our weekend getaway. From the beautiful private lake to the carefully maintained miles of trails to the tastefully appointed details of the house we were delighted with our stay and hope to return every year.

Peaceful, Beautiful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely PERFECT weekend get-away for a bachelorette party. Weather was chilly but we still had a blast. Fires at night were great with the wood provided. Took the kayaks and row boat out on the beautiful, quiet private lake. Sunset our last night was amazing! Will DEFINATLEY be back and explore the trails and kayak the river and snowshoe in the winter. Highly recommend this place for anyone. Kids would love it too! Thanks so much Jody! Lots of memories made with friends 😃?
