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. You can access 4-wheeler and snowmobile trails within 1/4 mile from 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 10 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 nine people with three bedrooms featuring two queen beds, full size bed, bunk beds, and a single bed, but with a daybed and couch that has a full pull-out sleeper, 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!

Super clean place that was all it claimed to be.

  • 5 of 5

The owner did a phenomenal job and was super flexible and accommodating as I could not get in until later on Friday evening. Everyone that stayed the weekend was blown away by how clean and big this house was! Big kitchen and huge dining table suited us very well.

Beautiful property, loved the trails

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 5 women) stayed over President's Day weekend for some R&R and cross-country skiing. The house is lovely and had everything we needed (and then some), the property is beautiful with a variety of trails, and Jody is the perfect hostess. It snowed pretty heavily on our day of departure, but Jim took care of plowing the long driveway prior to our leaving. We look forward to returning!

Perfect for a winter retreat.

The cabin is well equipped for all your needs. Plenty of space for your family to stretch out. Loved the trails for snowshoeing. A perfect place to create lasting memories.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Many people have commented on the owners, and we concur...they are wonderful. It was a very comfortable place. We didn't cook, but everything was there if we had. We took a number of walks on the extensive walking trails. Went out in the rowboat and caught some fish...little, but we caught them. Had time to enjoy every minute of our campfires and played games.

Would only have liked to have more time.

Awesome Escape!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, peaceful getaway! We had 4-generations of family and this home & lake were enjoyed by all during our week stay. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. The lake was beautiful & clear and provided hours of entertainment. The kayaks were enjoyed & mastered by ALL from the great grandparents down to the 5-year old - so much fun. The trails through the woods were great for 4-wheeling and walks. Seeing both wildlife we wanted to see (deer & turkeys) and signs of wildlife we were glad we didn't see (bear & bobcat). It was a great escape from everyone's fast paced life with an internet free week and we never even turned the TV on! Everyone has voted that we must come back!
