About the property

Cottage is roughly 950 sq ft 2 bedroom , 1 bath , sleeper sofa, satelite TV

Our cottage is located on the South shore of Lac Vieux Desert (aka LVD). LVD is a 4200 acre lake with 19 miles of shoreline, 4 islands and is home to many species of fish. LVD is known for the world record Tiger Musky, it's many other spcies of fish include,Walleye, Pike, Perch,large and small mouth bass, and many species of pan fish. While enjoying your time on th lake you might want to stop at one of the 3 establishments for food and refreshments or visit the dam which is the start of the Wisconsin River.

A cozy Lake front cabin sits 25 feet from the shore, has a level appoch to the pier, nicely decorated in a northwoods theme , clean ,cozy and includes sheets and towels. The cabin has 2 bedrooms one with a queen bed , the other with a set of bunkbeds and a twin. The living room also has a sofa sleeper. Ceiling fans are in all rooms , stove, fridge and microwave all in clean working condition. There is a large sandbox for the children, charcoal grill, picinic table, lawn chairs and self contained fire pit.

If you would like other directions, please contact us. We do not rent or supply any watercraft. However, partners Kurt & Lynn Kahlenberg also separately rent their pontoon and a fishing boat. The Pontoon is 18 feet with 25 HP motor, bimini top, fish finder and depth locator. The boat is a 16 foot Alumacraft (speed boat type) with a 90 HP motor, fish finder and depth locator, with live well. Reservations for either boat require a 3 day minimum and must be negotiated with the Kahlenbergs. For those of you with your own watercraft, there is plenty of room for parking your trailer and we have a public boat launch less then 1 mile away. Docking at one of the resort's piers is included at no charge.

There are many things to enjoy while staying at A Cozy Lakefront Cottage, activities close by include, bike trail, hiking (you might have a chance to see some wildlife such as eagles, deer, elk , loons, and a possible bear), swimming, jet skiing, casino, golfing, Bond Falls, The Paulding Light (Unsolved Mystery), Children's museum, flea markets, and 4-wheeling, these are just some of the activities that can occupy your time while in the Northwoods. Oopps one very important one I forgot to mention is RELAXATION, having a cup of coffe on the deck in the morning watching the sunrise or a cocktail in the evening, sitting on the pier watching the sunset, both make for a very relaxing day.

The cabin is privatly owned and operated by 2 couples. Kurt and Lynn Kahlenberg live a short distance away and if any problems occur during your stay they will ensure these problems get resolved immediatly.

Why John and Gail Heibl chose Phelps

We purchsed this property in 2010, this is part of a Condominium. The resort was purched in the early 2000, was totally referbished and then sold as seperate units. This resort has been running since the early 1950's, we have guests that have been here enjoying LVD for 4 generations now. The lake has a lot to offer: fishing, swimming, boating ,and relaxation.

Planning a return trip already.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, accommodating, perfect location. Still needs a new shower head though. Couldn't get the DVD player to work but we flagged down a DISH guy and he was kind enough to help us out with an adapter, so to anyone who stays there after're welcome. And yeah....come prepared with toilet paper, there isn't much there. Overall we were happy and hope to return.

typical north woods

  • 4 of 5

Everything was fine.. but it would have been nice to have more than a half of toilet paper in the cabin. We did come prepared but I have never experienced this before. The shower needs a new head and the bathroom sink drains slow.
