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!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place is stunning! Was wonderful to have the big lake all to ourselves to enjoy swimming or hanging out on our rafts. House was very spacious and well kept! Love all the deck/patio areas to spread out. Enjoyed the nice campfire area. Highly recommend this place to anyone especially a larger group! We really hope to visit again next year. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We all loved this place! Jody the owner was a pleasure to work with! Hoping to stay again next year!!!

Perfect location for getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to this property. We were warmly greeted by our host, Jody. We enjoyed the space and layout of the house. It was enough space for two families to stay and room for kids to play. The interior was clean and the laundry and dishwasher were a big bonus! The outdoor trails we enjoyed too and the lake for broomball! We'll be back next year! Thanks Jody!

Nice fall retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! Enjoyed an amazing girls weekend at Jody's property. The house is so nice well kept and has loads of room for everyone. Beds were comfy. Kitchen was large and provided a great area to hang out. We enjoyed the hiking trails the kayaks and the fire pit. We even took a late night dip in the lake. The lake is small but it was nice for a quick paddle. The beach was nice and I think the small lake size would be good for kids. There is no internet but everyone agreed that was a good thing because we couldn't sit on our phones all day. Jody was great to work with. She was always prompt in responding to my emails. She also lives near by in case you need anything during your stay. By the end of our weekend we were all talking about how we wanted to rent this property again.

Absolutely amazing! If you want to be unplugged, relax, or do outside activities this is the place.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice! We had a group of 6 and plenty of room for more. The trails were fun for hiking, walking, and hiking. We did it all. We had a blast in the lake, swimming, kayaking, watching ducklings and turtles. Our granddaughter played in the sand. Our son in law loves to fish. They were plenty of lakes near by for him to go and fish at. He caught a 5lb small moth bass! Usually all of us go fishing with him but it was so relaxing at this home we all stayed back to relax and play. We would absolutely recommend this place! The hosts were terrific! Great people!

Great place to "get away from the hustle and bustle"!

  • 5 of 5

This house and remote & beautiful setting is an absolute gem! Jody is wonderful to work with and the house has everything you could need - plus thoughtful extras!! Watching the sunset over the lake every night was a highlight for us - that and the amazing star gazing, the trails throughout the property... and the privacy CANNOT be beat! We also enjoyed exploring the surrounding area with our family - there's a great little zoo 30 min away, wonderful hiking all around, Lake Superior is just a 45 minute drive - the options are endless... We highly recommend this rental - you won't regret it!
