Super family friendly place.
We just left The Nook and are extremely happy with our experience. Joe thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and on the outside, amenities such as kayaks, boat, dock, were ample. Our granddaughter visited for a couple of days and she was in heaven. She loved the sandy beach, learning to kayak, catching frogs, and being in the water. Thanks Joe!
Thanks, Allison! It was a joy to have you as our guest! Joe and Sam
The back patio area was falling apart and uneven to walk on, lots of spiders and wasp nest.
The water was 3-4 feet lower than normal , was very disappointing because we have a larger boat that drafts alot of water. Also their was a picture of an air-conditioner on the site but when arrived to our surprise their was no air-conditioner. the inside of the house was very damp and smelled old& mildewy. For the amount of money we paid , would recommend putting some of that money back into the house and yard.
Oh, darn. It's too bad when one gets a review like this - all issues that would have been no-issue if the renter had just read the property description prior to booking, and, in this case, known that, for example, in the Northwoods one does find the occasional - gasp - spider! Unfortunately, this renter repeatedly would not return my emails, calls or texts until after check-out, so there was no way for me to know about any of their concerns. Moreover, our description clearly says there is no A/C, and that Lake Nokomis is a flowage, so water levels vary (in this case, the water was 2' below normal - one can easily check this online - and that still left 7' of water in our bay!). Check our other reviews for reasonable and informed comments on the property! Thanks for looking!! Joe
Great location for outdoor fun!
Updated kitchen (with everything you could need) and baths (note: the deep claw foot tub may be hard for some to get in and out of); roomy bedrooms. Great view of the water from the living space. Though it technically sleeps 8 with the pull-out couches, most comfortable stay (for sleeping and all eating together) for 4. A great getaway!
Lovely, clean and comfortable, sandy swim area, great yard for games and fires!
We loved everything about this place--it is beautiful inside and out. Antique decor coupled with modern conveniences, right on the lake in a sheltered cove. Good fishing, too! The kayaks were fun, and the sandy swim area was perfect. The owner is responsive to any questions, and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. One of the best places we have stayed in WI!
Thanks, Laura! Hope to see you again!
This cabin was perfect! Comfortable, clean, relaxing with a fantastic lake view. The sunrises were breathtaking. The beach/dock area was sandy, you could fish from the dock. With great access into town. What a wonderful vacation.
Quaint and Quiet, right off the main drag
Well kept and very clean. The owner was great to work with, emailed a checklist prior to arrival that answered many questions. I would recommend printing it off, there are 3 pages. The nook is situated in a bay so you are away from the boat traffic and noise, the boat landing is just around the corner and the fee is free!. There is a lake map by the launch site. Worth it!
Thanks, Karla, for the kind words. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back on your next trip to the Northwoods!
