About the property

4-bedroom, 2-bath cottage with lake views from every room.

Slow down and relax at this quaint cottage on Meta Lake near Eagle River. This extremely private property gives you 3 acres on which to play, picnic, walk and meditate. Four bedrooms, 2 baths with plenty of room for kids and dogs. 2 canoes, 2 kayaks, swim platform, 3 piers, great fishing and swimming, sandy beach, 2 fire pits, wood fireplace, comfortable beds. Not fancy, but not too rustic. Every bedroom has a lake view. Very very charming!

Note: This cottage is our family's vacation home and is almost always in some stage of remodeling -- right now we're working on improving trim, adding cedar shingles to the upper story of the exterior and painting the exterior. Bathrooms and bedrooms are completed. Catwalk is blocked while we wait for our railings to come in (but access to that area isn't needed as the 5th bedroom it connects to isn't part of the rental).

About Tim and Lisa Meidl

Tim and Lisa Meidl live in Madison, Wisconsin. This is their getaway cottage. Lisa is a writer and Tim is an educator and human resources professional. Lisa has studied interior design at UW-Madison and Tim grew up remodeling homes, so we have enjoyed turning this cottage into our special home.

Tim and Lisa Meidl purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tim and Lisa Meidl chose Northeast

We also own a resort -- Twilight Cove -- on the same lake. It's so busy in summer, we weren't able to come up north at all, so we had to remedy that situation! We have spent a lot of time remodeling this darling 1950 cottage with our three teenagers, friends and family. It has a rich history in the area. The family we purchased it from spent their summers there as children with their spinster aunt and bachelor uncle. The cousins got out of the summer heat in the city at this darling cottage with frequent visits from their parents. As they grew up and moved away, the cottage was used less often. We came along, fell in love and have restored it with history in mind, but adding modern conveniences.

What makes this cottage unique

You can see the lake from every window. The pine wood used to build the cottage was all lumbered from nearby land the family owned. We've worked to retain almost all of that wood (and added a bit of new wood as well). Since it was a summer cottage, we did have to amend it to make it ready for winter use -- new insulation, furnace, and windows and doors.

The best part of the property is the land. You can walk all over the beautiful property--along the water, in the woods and on the driveway--without seeing another soul. The neighboring lots haven't been built on at all so there are no nearby homes (although that land is owned by others -- so no trespassing please!). We've recreated the lovely sand beach the family had installed in the 1950s and added several piers.
