Overview

About the property

Friday to Friday weekly rentals available!

Enjoy a relaxing or exciting family and friends get-a-away in this private luxury 5 bedroom home on Lake Arbutus! This home has trail access to more than 235 miles of 4 wheeler trails, has a private sandy beach that gradually slopes into the water, and a large floating dock to jump off of into beautiful Lake Arbutus! Watch the sunset from one of two balconies or on the outdoor patio while making s’mores in the fire pit or toasting a glass of wine by the outdoor fireplace. This spacious home is perfect for all occasions with plenty of room for all your guests, while still allowing plenty of privacy from the stresses of everyday life.

Within five miles of this location is a terrific supper club (Stronesthrow). Many of our guests travel by boat to enjoy two popular places such as: hand-dipped ice cream counter, Lake Arbutus Sportsbar, Grill & Resort (horseshoes, mini golf, sand volleyball, arcade, etc.), the famous Tiki bar overlooking the lake, weekend breakfast at the Little Bar, and two campgrounds with beaches and playgrounds!!! The house is located on the 4-wheeler trails, so no need to trailer once you arrive in the driveway. Clark and Jackson County are the best ATV and single-track motorcycle trails in the Midwest – with over 235 miles of trails to explore! Pontoon and jet ski rentals are available at Lake Arbutus Motor Sports; canoe and kayak rentals available at Hatfield Sports Shop.

About 10 miles away is Lake Wazee where people enjoy fishing, sightseeing, and scuba diving in Wisconsin’s clearest and deepest lake. Ho Chunk Casino and Hoffman Aquatic Center are also just 13 miles away in Black River Falls. There are also plenty of small shops, wineries, and places to eat in Hatfield and the small surrounding towns. Levis Mound, only 15 miles away, offers hiking, snowshoeing, and mountain biking. Bruce Mound, about 5 miles away, offers winter skiing, snowboarding, and tubing.

Hatfield has a little something for everyone to enjoy no matter what your interests may be.

Frequently asked questions:

Is there a place to rent/dock a pontoon boat (or other boat) near the property?

We have a large floating dock that travelers are welcome to use! Pontoon and jet ski rentals are available at Lake Arbutus Motor Sports http://www.lakearbutusmotorsports.com/ . Kayak and Canoe rentals are available at Hatfield Sports Shop http://www.hatfieldsportsshop.com/. We also have a paddle boat (sometimes two) on the property that is free to use.

Is it safe for kids to swim in front of the property? (Does the water get very deep very fast etc.)

Yes, it is safe for children to swim in front of the property, but of course please watch them closely at all times! The sandy beach gradually goes into the water. About 7 feet out it drops to about 5 feet deep. If you have older kids the water at the end of the dock is only about 8 feet deep. No deep diving! I jumped off this dock a million times as a kid! :)

What nearby activities are available for kids?

There is a lot for kids to do in the area. There is a roller skating rink right in Hatfield (about 3 miles away from the house). Lake Arbutus Resort (2 miles away by road or accessible by boat) has a tiki bar with a sand area the staff often throws change in for kids to find, they also have slushy drinks (a favorite with the kids in our family), a small arcade in a gazebo off the patio, free mini golf, and volleyball courts. There are two county campgrounds/parks on the lake – both with playgrounds. There is a gas station that has hand dipped ice cream, which the kids in our family also always ask to stop at. I highly suggest the caramel collision if you go! Lake Wazee is a beautiful deep and clear lake to go check out about 13 miles away towards Black River Falls (BRF). In BRF there is an aquatic center and movie theatre. In Neillsville (about 10 miles away) there is a bowling alley, Frisbee golf course, skatepark, and a regular golf course. If your kids like hiking Levis mound is also a great place to go.

What dates do you have available?

Because we just recently listed our home we still have many dates available, but we are booking up quickly! We try our best to keep the calendar updated at all times, so please look at the calendar to see if the week(s) you want are available. Our weekly rentals start on a Friday (check in at 3pm) and end the following Friday (10am check out).

Wondering what your cancellation policy is and payment terms?

We allow guests to cancel 30 days in advance of the check in date. We require half down to secure the reservation and this is non refundable. The remaining balance is collected 30 days prior to check in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed at your vacation hone on Lake Arbutus from July 10 to July 17, 2015. We arrived and found a very lovely home in spotless condition.. We were very pleased with the house itself, the wonderful décor, the surroundings and the friendliness of all the people we met while there. It was a wonderful week for all of us. While there we rented a pontoon boat for the entire week and a ski-boat for one day, all of which contributed to a wonderful stay for all our children and grandchildren.

Family Fun time

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a week in June at this beautiful lodge. It was just as beautiful as the photos and the kitchen had everything need for meal prep.

4 families enjoyed all the amenities of the home with plenty of room for everyone. A highlight was the fire pit in the backyard overlooking the lake. The grandkids love making smores!

We took our UTV's and enjoyed the numerous trails in the area.

The lodge is within driving distance of the Wisconsin Dells so we enjoyed a day at the water park and an evening at the waterski show.

We rented a pontoon boat for one afternoon and enjoyed tooling around the lake.

It was a great week with our 3 daughters and their families.

Great place for three generations of family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this lovely, immaculate, and beautifully decorated home. The kitchen is fully appointed, and the the house is large enough to have quiet places for reading and conversation, as well as gathering spots for games. The Foosball table was very popular! We loved the fire pit at night, and the easy access to the private pier was much appreciated by the oldest members of the family. Apparently, the boat rental place on the lake is under new ownership this year, as the pontoon boat we rented this year was brand new and no problem at all. The youngsters also rented jet skis, swam, and enjoyed the paddleboat. All linens, towels, beach towels, beach toys, and yard games were provided. We also appreciated the giant refrigerator in the garage. We'll be back!

Wow, pictures dont do justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home over Labor day and we didn't want to leave. We had 8 adults 4 kids and 1 baby. There was plenty of room for everyone! The second we pulled up to the house, to the second we pulled away we had smiles from ear to ear. The house was so beautiful and peaceful. The view from the kitchen looking out to the lake was breath taking. The fireplace outside was perfect for us at night while sharing memories around the fire. There was plenty of room for all the kids to play and ride their bikes. We did rent a boat for a total of 2 days, it was awesome to have the boat right at our own dock. The boat we rented wasn’t the best, hopefully by next summer they get some new boats as we had many issues with it starting. Other than the boat we have nothing, but great things to say about our stay. I would highly recommend this home as we are going to make it an annual trip.

High quality lake home

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 guys meet up to celebrate a series of 40th birthdays. We enjoyed everything about our stay. We were greeted by the owner Cheryl and never had to contact her again because the home was in such good shape. The property was very clean. Some of our favorite parts were hanging out at the large fire pit. We enjoyed renting a pontoon and took it to the sports bar, (our boat didn't work very well but we made do), coffee in the morning out on the dock and taking the pedal boat for a ride. There are multiple nice decks to sit on. I can't think of anything negative. Last great item. There is a giant fridge in the garage that looks like it used to be at a bar. You would have a hard time filling that fridge full. I wish one of us owned a boat so we didn't have to coordinate renting one. Thank you for having us. Hopefully we can make it back some time.

Great lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Our group came in on a very hot day and the air didn't seem to be working. We called the owner that afternoon and she had someone there by noon the next day to fix it (it just needed freon). The house is a beautiful home on a beautiful lake that is so peaceful at night. We loved that fact that we could ride right from the house on our ATV's! Would recommend eating at Stones Throw and Muggs in Hatfield when you don't feel like cooking at the house. A fun time was had by all and would definitely recommend this place! Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven!!
