About Jim Constine

Grew up in Wisconsin and currently live in De Pere, WI.

Jim Constine purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Jim Constine chose St. Germain

My family had been dreaming of a north woods home for years. Every year our extended family vacationed in the Hayward, Minocqua, & Door County regions but never felt like the place had everything we needed or was big enough for everyone. We knew that we were not the only family with this issue, so we set out to find a place that encompassed everything: We miraculously found this at The Musky Inn: location, space, amenities, and history.The location is ideal: Thousands of lakes surround you, yet you are close to Minocqua, Woodruff, St Germain & Eagle River that have all the amenities of a nice small town.

What makes this lodge unique

The lodge's size and history made this an easy choice for our current renovation project. It is one of the most beautiful locations and buildings in the north woods. Make sure you read the history of the Musky Inn beginning with the dream of a French physician Amadee Chabrison.

Great Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a family reunion week at the Musky Inn. The Inn had everything for every age group. . . for the young folks there was ping pong, volley ball, corn hole, fire pit, swimming, paddle boards, tubing, even futons and a big screen TV :((. For the adults there was a fabulous outdoor bar (where we could watch the kids with their activities) and in the evenings enjoy beautiful sunsets over the water with a glass of wine. There was sunbathing on the beach, boating/tubing, pontooning, or fishing off the pier . . . or even an early morning boat ride (before the kids get up)! There is a full kitchen where each family took one night and cooked for the whole crew. We ate outside on the large decks where spills were not a problem! All in all, the Musky Inn is a great place for a relaxed vacation where you only take swim suits, coverups, flip flops, and nothing else. Please know this is not a luxury vacation spot with room service at your fingertips; it is authentic, historic, and a wonderful place to punch out of life and enjoy some peace and quiet. [I am now wanting to go in the dead of Winter. It must be beautiful there covered in snow. . . .and perhaps ice fishing??]

Happy Campers!

  • 5 of 5

We were coming up to northern Wisconsin for a family wedding and were looking for a 5 bedroom home that was close to the wedding venue. As long as we were driving 600 plus miles for a wedding, we decided to make a week of it. We were drawn to the pictures of the Musky Inn's lodge/cabin interior and of course all the great reviews. We rented the north side which was perfect for 10 adults and 3 kids, our ages ranged from 82 to 6 years old. Jim was there to greet us and the minute he opened the door for us, we knew we had found the perfect get away for the week. The inside of the Inn is decorated to perfection and the outside grounds are beautiful. We especially love the ground level beach. No steep hills to climb up and down to get to the water. All the way out to the end of the docks and beyond is sand, no weeds at all! There was plenty of dock space for our boat and we really appreciated the covered bumper poles to tie up to. We spent a few rainy hours under the roof of the bar (and a lot of sunny hours too). We liked that we could be outside and stay dry! The deck off the house is huge and has a lot of seating area. One of the perks of the Musky Inn is that it has air conditioning. A couple days it was really muggy and we sure did appreciate it. We love the history of the building and it is in a great location. While we were in St. Germain, we went horse back riding, went to the Monday Flea Market, drove over to Michigan and hiked the Porcupine Mountains along Lake Superior, went over to Eagle River to do touristy stuff and of course went to the wedding. Jim is a great host (and a great singer/guitar player) and we appreciated that he was there to greet us! We loved our stay so much that in 2018 we are bringing along our extended family of 30 and renting out the whole Inn. We can't wait!

Musky Inn

  • 5 of 5


Our group loved the place! We opted to stay in to eat and socialize due to the fact that there was no reason to leave. The accommodations were great. We used the kitchen and ample seating around the large dining table to enjoy our dinner. We had our morning coffee in the front sitting room. The view of the lake was mesmerizing. In the evenings we made use of the deck and fire pit to sit under the stars. This place was perfect for our group to escape to the Northwoods of Wisconsin and spend some memorable time together.

Fun had by all,

Tim and Wendy
