I grew up in the Minneapolis area and have lived there most of my life. My father is from Northwest Wisconsin and I have visited the area since I was a kid. I have good memories of traveling to this part of the woods, fishing, beaches, snowmobiling, and walking area trails.
Kim purchased this cabin in 1998
When we decided to purchase a lake cabin we looked at many areas. We wanted something not too far away and yet still private. The minute I stepped out of the car and looked up at the pretty pine trees I fell in love with the place. This 1950's resort was in need of some work, but we knew we could purchase it, and put some of our loving touches on it. We have loved it, enjoyed staying here, and have updated it as we can afford.
This is a special place. It is very private and the beach is within 50 feet of the deck. You can sit on the deck and watch the sun rise with breath taking views. It is quiet and feels like your on our own island with water surrounding the property.
We loved it here just as describe. Very warm and welcoming. All of are 7 kids ranging in age of 1 to 12 had a blast. Catching frogs, doing frog races, watching the loon's, Fishing off the dock, swimming, doing nature walks, bonfires, board games, one thing these kids weren't was bored. Little Hidden Treasures throughout the cabin was such a joy for them. The 7 adults were also very happy. So much extra room to sprawl out with all of us there. We had tons of extra stuff to cook with, the pancake griddle maker was awesome. The lake was a perfect size for this friend/ family vacation. Kim was very resourceful we couldn't have ask for a better vacation.
Planning a siblings weekend for 16 people is not easy, but this wonderful property fit the bill. The home and two cabins gave up options for everyone. Some wanted quiet space at times, while others enjoyed games and telling stories with lots of laughter, and this property offered both. It offered the privacy a big group needs. It was a rainy weekend, but the views were still fantastic. Every chance we got, between rain drops, we sat on the deck and took in the peace and quiet that surrounded us. We couldn't have asked for a better place to sit back and relive our childhood memories. Everyone liked it so much they have asked to come back again next year. Working with Kim has been nothing but a pleasant experience. If there were any questions, from the time of booking to walking through the front, she was quick with a response and always looking out for how she can better serve us. Thank you so much, Kim. Loved your property and loved the experience of working with you.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The cabins were a little more rustic then we were expecting but served the purpose. Kim was very pleasant to work with. I think this property is a work in progress. We really enjoyed and appreciated the use of the pontoon boat for the week.
We were lucky enough to find an opening at this property after our usual family reunion location fell through. It turned out to be a wonderful week for us! We had 14 people, and there was plenty of space for us to spread out.
The property is amazing. The large main house had a large kitchen, and an open dining/living area that opened onto a large deck. The space was big enough for our group to congregate for games & lounging. The main house looks directly over the beach area - what a fantastic amount of sand beach to play in! The setup was just so easy & convenient - the lower level of the main house was right at beach level with a great big screen patio/room - perfect for a rainy or buggy day. Then the two small cabins were such a welcome addition for the families with kids who needed a little more space. Each had its own pair of bedrooms, small bathroom, and open (cozy) kitchen/eating/living area. The small cabins are definitely rustic - old fishing cabins but all the basics you'd need.
Our week was filled with lots of lounging - but we managed to get away to do a bit of hiking (Amnicon Falls & Pattison State parks - both great waterfall hikes) & exploring the nearby towns. Spooner & Danbury offered just the right amount of coffee shop/café/shops to give us some short diversions. Definitely check out The Dock and the general store in Spooner (coffee/sandwiches).
Maybe our favorite part was the nature. We loved watching the loon family, a few bald eagles, turtles, and snakes. Loon music at night was amazing. Fishing was unfortunately very slim for our group of guys. We heard the fishing in Long Lake right next door was much better. The pontoon boat worked well for our group, a nice feature!
Owners were so kind - very flexible and responsive to all our questions. I'd recommend this place; we will definitely consider it again for next year! If you're looking for a rustic, quiet getaway for a large group, this is definitely your place.
This is a great place to stay. We had an extended family of 14, and they more than fit in the home and two cabins. A great sandy beach with a fire pit, a quiet secluded lake and a pontoon boat for motoring around. For most of the week we felt like we were the only ones on the Lake, it's that quiet. The cabins are being refurbished (July 2015,) and are almost done. They are very livable. Spooner is a half hour away, and has great shopping and restaurants, one that is part of a wonderful coffee/ice cream/fudge shop. The latter is great place to hang out and get the internet.
The owners could not have been more helpful, pointing out local eating places and other points of interest. They were great to deal with. I would highly recommend it. The only reason we might not be back next year is that it's almost a full day's drive for most of our group, and I suspect even that won't keep us away.
My family truly enjoyed our stay. The cabins were clean and the lake was serene. We enjoyed the fact that this lake has very few boats on it at any given time. This is such a quiet and secluded lake that we came home feeling really refreshed. My kids were in awe of the wildlife surrounding them, many turtles were their favorite. My older daughter saw a loons nest while kayaking. The fishing was awesome! The water is so clear that we could see fish in the water. We had an all you can eat fish fry our first evening there! We will be back next year once our busy city life gets to be too much.
We are located in the country where many lakes dot the landscape. There are large, small, deep and shallow lakes. We welcome you to explore this beautiful wildlife area. Many activities onsite and within 15 minute drive.
