Great time with family!

  • 4 of 5

Northwoods Tuckaway provided just the peace and quiet we were all seeking. We spent a lot of time fishing, kayaking and swimming. Being close to town made for quick runs to the store and the Bearskin trail was close enough for morning runs. We spent a lot of time on the bonfire swings, a nice new addition by the owner. Loved our stay. Could use some newer mattresses in the lower level.

Great place for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families, which included 7 adults, and had plenty of room for all of us. Bedrooms on upper and lower level. The rec room has an additional full size refrigerator available. A favorite spot for us was an area near the water where 4 glider-type swings attached around a fire pit. The area was quiet and the lake was quiet when we were there. Very peaceful. Although highway 51 is under construction through Woodruff, it took just abt 15 minutes to drive to and park in Minocqua. We enjoyed our time there.

Great place for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. We had adults and babies (2, 7, 13, and 16 months) filling the bedrooms, but still had plenty of space. It was nice to have a big kitchen (with plenty of good cooking tools) and living area to eat together, and plenty of outside activities (the swing set, fire pit, and boats) and inside (TV, games, relaxing couches) to keep everyone going. The location couldn't be easier, right off of hwy 51 and close to the main grocery store and other hiking and city attractions. Yet still felt secluded and couldn't hear outside noise (nor each other, the walls were actually quite thick). Owners were very responsive and helpful.

Relaxing and able to "unplug"

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family enjoyed our time we had while staying here. Thank you to the McCain's to opening up their home for others to enjoy. There was plenty of room for everyone and no one got bored even the kids "unplugged" from electronics during the day. They were out on the water more hours than in the house and that made these parents very happy! The lake setting is beautiful, relaxing and quiet without the public access. We can't wait to return!
