About Clifton 'Kip' Knudson

My name is Clifton 'Kip' Knudson. I have been building homes for 30+ years. Our family built this house with the intention of selling it in the 'Real Estate for Vacationers' market. It is currently being rented with option to buy.

Clifton 'Kip' Knudson purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

This house is built with a lot of character. The dark stained exposed beam ceilings on the main floor and unique light fixtures make for a warm feel. Sitting in the family room with stained glass windows and fireplace with a view of the lake is simply magical! Upstairs features a game room with air hockey, twister painted on the floor, game console, and fun kids' bunk room with space for activities and built-in play room. Located in a quiet area where many of the neighboring houses are family second homes, there is a nice local night life on the weekends and quiet weeks.

A sturdy and scenic boardwalk down to the lake (well-built and able to bear the weight of a golf cart or ATV) boasts purple fringe orchids, yellow lady slippers, blue flag iris, and other beautiful flowers during the blooming season!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

I took my family up for a long weekend and we loved it so much we extended because we didn't want to leave. It's a perfect hang out for kids with the game room, and double bunk beds, 2 nice queen bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The first floor master is stunning as well as family room with fireplace. Nice full size kitchen and dining for 6-9 w/ island. A garage was nice to pull in when it was raining. Also a short walk to the beach (SANDY BOTTOM) w/ nice pier. We met Kip and chatted about the place, he's a real nice guy. Thanks again, The Burns: Dave, Charmaine, Kira, Aubry, Mya & Mason.

Cedar lake in

Orchid house

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 adults and 3 children stayed a week in the home. The home is beautiful with plenty of room. All the accommodations of home are provided. The kids loved the game room! The adults had fun up there too! The short walk to the lake was nice. We rented their pontoon, which was a good choice. The lake was quiet. We just happened to be taking a cruise while the ski show was going on and we really enjoyed it. The owner Kip was very nice and easy to contact. The only downside was the lake was very shallow and weedy so we really didn’t swim. The fishing was not the greatest either. Overall we had a great time and would do it again.

Property was very nice, quiet and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Orchid House. Got to fish, kayak, and enjoy the water in our boat. Most enjoyable was the family time we enjoyed with having enough room for all of us to stay together. The house was clean and amenities were great. Thanks Kip!

Lake Noquebay County Park
Car: recommended

The rental property is located on the beautiful Lake Noquebay, a sizable lake of 3.8 square miles. A popular lake for water skiing, tubing, sailing, fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding, there is room for everyone! Lake Noquebay is home to the Crivitz Ski Cats water ski show with free shows every Wednesday and Saturday night from mid-June to mid-August at the Lake Noquebay County Park 2 miles down the road. Drive to the park ($3 county park fee) or park your boat out on the water to watch!

The lake also features the Timberline Bar & Grill 2 miles away by car, or simply drive your boat up to the docking area on the lake. They have indoor and outdoor seating facing the lake with an outdoor Tiki bar that is open weekends during the summer. The sunset views from the deck are something to behold!

Though the lake comes alive on the weekends, during the week it is fairly quiet. Perfect for fishing and relaxing.

Just a 30 minute drive will bring you to the DeYoung Family Zoo in Wallace, MI where you can get up close and personal with exotic animals from all over the world. The owners will bring out the babies (bobcats, wolves, badgers, bear, snakes, kangaroo etc) for petting sessions in a very safe and kid friendly atmosphere. This is a zoo like no other!

Additional summer activities in the Crivitz area include:

-Kosir's whitewater rafting

-Self-guided waterfall tour of Marinette county

-two golf courses

-countless bar and grills scattered throughout the area

-Gift shops

-Falling Waters Winery

-Flea market every Thursday during the summer

-4th of July parade and festivities in the village

Though summer is the prime tourism season, Crivitz is not without its winter sports which include:

-extensive snowmobiling trail 0.25 miles from the lake house

-ice fishing on Lake Noquebay

-XC skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking trails 5 mi away in the Lake Noquebay Wildlife Area

-groomed (skate & classic) XC trails 5 mi west of Crivitz on Kirby Lake ln

-ski mountains 50 mi north (about an hour drive)

There are countless outdoor activities for all enthusiasts no matter the season!
