4 bed, 2 bath cabin w/ private scenic lake views and 520 feet of sandy lakefront
About Janes Family
My husband and I purchased our first cabin in the north woods to get away from the busy work life in 2001. When he passed away in 2013, I decided to try to keep a north woods place in the family and moved to Gresham Retreat, but share it with other nature lovers to help us justify the costs.
Janes Family purchased this House in 2015
Why Janes Family chose Arbor Vitae
Our lake is a quiet, relatively small lake, which offers peaceful, scenic views and relaxation, but is still a short drive from several large lake chains, 15 minutes from Minocqua, and under an hour to several ski resorts in the U.P. We look forward to every opportunity to get up north to relax by the water and soak in the beautiful and peaceful views.

What makes this House unique
The wide variety of wildlife and birds, beautiful scenic 180 degree lake views and quiet relaxing atmosphere make Gresham Retreat the ideal vacation getaway. We find ourselves spending every minute of every day down by the water. We grill our lunch and dinners by the water, swim in the water, paddle around in the boats, lay out on the dock, and gather around the fire pit for quiet evening campfires. Every evening we enjoy the serene sunsets and watch the muskrat swim back and forth across our frontage, listen to the loons and whip-poor-wills, and soak in the peace and quiet of the north woods. Listen to some of the videos in the gallery or our site: greshamretreat.com for examples of the peaceful atmosphere that guests enjoy daily at Gresham Retreat!

Geoff was great to work with. Place was exactly as described. Was very accommodating for snowmobiling. Very nice place. Would definitely rent again.
Great Cabin & Property
This property was the perfect getaway to spend with family. The property manager was very quick to answer any messages and was very helpful. The cabin is very nicely secluded and what you like to have for a northwoods getaway. The cabin is setup perfectly and has plenty of room for a family to spread out and enjoy each other's company. While we didn't get to spend much time outside (due to the snow depth) it looked very well kept and played out. Will definitely be back!
Snowmobile Family Trip
Cabin was wonderful and met all our needs and expectations. The beds were all comfortable. Driveway was tight with trailers and snow piles. Very convenient to get to the trails. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
The place was great. Ideal place for a weekend getaway or an entire week.
Had a great experience with the property and the property managers. The property had everything you needed and the property managers were very helpful leading up to the stay and providing you with information. This stay was during the winter and I would definitely choose this place as a summer getaway as well.
Great place to stay
This house is so clean and has lots of room for everyone to find their own space or be together. The location is very convenient for snowmobiling as well.
