Are you looking for a romantic getaway? Do you want to be off the beaten path and have a beautiful, peaceful place nestled in the tall pines on a lakeshore of Northern Wisconsin but still have easy, paved access to the highway? Visit us!
We are family owned and operated and have been in the accommodations business since 1990, beginning with our 6 tourist cabins near Denali National Park in Alaska, where we built our first home. We were raised in Central and Northern Wisconsin. We know how to treat our guests and provide what you are looking for to have the perfect "getaway." Our lake is crystal clear with sandy beaches and excellent fishing.
This is a "mother-in-law" SUITE above our attached garage, with your own private stairway entry, private bath with shower/sink/toilet, 1 Queen size bed and a kitchenette, dining area and reading chair. It has most everything that you will need. We provide the towels and linens! You must be able to climb a rather steep stairway to your entrance.
*** Nonsmoking. No pets. 2-3 Night Minimum Stay ****
Free Wi-Fi and Samsung LED Smart TV for live streaming TV apps and online sites. Spectrum Cable TV app via wireless internet is available on the TV.
The Suite is not large enough to have a 3rd person in the room.
We have been renting out the Suite on a nightly basis during the summer, since 2012. We are fully licensed, permitted and inspected by the Lincoln County health department and we collect the state and county sales tax of 5.5%. We are open Mid May - early/mid October. We are easy to find and are accessible by highway. Our 0.10 mile driveway is entirely paved.
You may bring food and cook using the microwave and outside natural gas grill or charcoal grill. There is also a burner for a pot on the gas grill.
**PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NOT A STOVE or OVEN IN THE SUITE**
PLEASE - NO hotplates, electric frying pans or other cooking appliances are allowed inside the suite due to their fire hazard and insurance liability.
Our well water is super good tasting and healthy. It is tested annually by the Lincoln County Health Department and has always been negative. No need to bring bottled water and add to earth's plastic waste! We also use the Culligan water system to soften the water.
We do not provide meals but there is tea, coffee, and oatmeal..
There are many WI Supper Clubs, Bar & Grills and a wonderful Ice Cream Parlor, and Coffee place nearby.
The apartment is tastefully decorated with custom made furniture and Northwoods decor.
Books, magazines, standard DVD player, DVD's, numerous board games, cards, and information on local sites, activities, trails and restaurants.
Samsung 32" LED Smart TV with a standard DVD player. Numerous Apps via the Smart TV are available including Spectrum Cable TV, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, games, etc. via live video streaming. There is a Redbox movie outlet in Tomahawk at Nelson's County Market. We also have some DVD's.

Lake Size: 156 Acres. Maximum Depth 62 feet. Natural spring fed lake. 3 miles of shoreline.
Lake Notes: Specializing in Northern Pike, Muskie and Bluegill. Walleye, Large & Smallmouth Bass and panfish are also numerous. We are on a chain of lakes. Deer Lake connects to Bridge Lake & Lake Nokomis (The Rice Reservoir) via a channel which is usually navigable through early-mid July. After that, the water level in the channel may be too low to get through with a motor. Usually, we can still kayak through. If you are planning on bringing your own boat, please let us know and ask us about the water level if it is important to you to get into Lake Nokomis.
We have 3, 1-person kayaks and a 2-person canoe available for your free use along with life jackets. Swimming, canoeing and kayaking are at your own risk. You will be asked to sign a recreational liability waiver before arrival. Please hand this in at check in.
Boats, Pontoon Boats and Personal Watercraft rentals are available at Tomahawk Sports Center in Tomahawk - 4 miles south. We do not allow usage of any motorized boats that we may own.
Centerstone Resort is 2.5 miles away and has paddle boards available for rent.
We have our own personal bikes that you may use at your own risk - just ask us about them. We are not tall people so they might be too short for you. We do not provide bike helmets.
Usually, we have plenty of room available on the beach or dockside if you bring a boat. There is a nearby boat ramp on the lake and a couple on Lake Nokomis. Please let us know if you are bringing a boat.
We live in the private main house year round and will usually be on property.
No public transportation is available. There is a taxi service in Tomahawk but I don't know how reliable they are. You will need to have your own vehicle or motorcycle.
If you bring a motorcycle or two, we can provide garage space for them.
There is a family house dog on the property but she is never allowed inside the apartment. Lexi is a very loving, people-friendly Goldendoodle (half golden retriever, half standard poodle) who doesn't shed and is nonallergenic. Lexi was born in 2010.
We encourage you to walk the numerous trails that we created throughout our 7+ acres and our additional 12 acres nearby on Wurl Rd. You will always hear or see wildlife and birds to view and photograph.
You are welcome to be anywhere outside on the property grounds. The grounds and the suite are for your use. The main house and garages are private. You can use all outdoor tables, chairs, fire pit, 3 kayaks up on the kayak stand, canoe, grills, dock, deck, and patios. Walk around the property!
You may interact with us as much or as little as you prefer! We will respect your privacy and allow you to have the vacation that you deserve and want. One of us is usually here. You can ring the doorbell, text or call us or find us outside.
We look forward to hosting you in the near future!
