Why Brian and Evelyn chose Minong
I've been coming up to the Northwoods my whole life as did my parents and my grandparents. I spent many summer vacations on Lake Nancy and still come up on vacations, holidays and weekends.. It's like a family reunion and can't imagine anywhere else I'd rather be. It's the place that makes you feel like a kid again, kind of like you never left. The peaceful sounds in the morning as I go out fishing, the afternoon activities and campfire nights is just a few reasons why every child and adult should experience it. My grandmother was 102 years old and still came up, that itself has to say something. Please read our reviews to give you the insight of what to expect from a guests stand point.
What makes this Cottage unique
Bald Eagle landed in pine tree while we were looking out the living room window, allowing you to be eye to eye with an amazing bird of prey. With the house elevated, allows you to see more and get the birds eye view of the lake. Enjoy the view of the lake by sitting on our pier, whether it's watching the Loons or taking in the amazing sunrises or sunsets.

Great Labor Day Weekend Stay
The house is exactly as pictured and provided a great place for my family to stay over the holiday weekend. We did rent the paddle boat and it was nice to get out and explore the lake. The weather was chilly for Labor Day so we didn't actually get in the water but they definitely have the set up for a great lake weekend. We came up North to ATV. The rental is on the ATV paths but the good paths (that aren't roads) are a little ways a way. Brian and Evelyn were great hosts. They texted to make sure we had all the information we needed before we got there, and to make sure we got in okay. They even texted after some bad storms rolled through and knocked out the power to make sure everything was still good. Over all great weekend at the Shy Away Lodge and would highly recommend.
Thank you for being such good guests. Love to hear the fun and memories families make at Shy Away Lodge!
4th year in a row!
This was our fourth year in a row at this property. Just like the previous years we were well taken care of and Evelyn was very attentive to all of our needs! The fishing was great and the Eagles as always were fun to watch. There was plenty of room for our two families with a total of nine people with two beds to spare! Looking forward to booking next year and keeping the tradition alive.
It was great having you as 4th year guests!! Love to hear the fun and memories and meeting you all was nice. Welcome back anytime, see you next year!!!
The pictures are great, but the real life experience is amazing!! The house was so clean! Tons of space and tons to do!! The lake is gorgeous, crystal clear, with so many fish!! The sand bar is a great time with sand at your feet. We watched the eagles and heard the loons sing everyday. The kids stayed off electronics and we didn’t even turn the TV on once. Game night every night after a fire down by the water watching the moon glow on the lake and my kiddos fish off the dock. The dogs were so happy to join us. Brian and Evelyn were so easy to get into contact with if any questions arose. Just a perfect family vacation!!
We love to hear the memories and stories from our guests! You are welcome back anytime! Great having you!
Another Wonderful Stay
This was our 4th year at Shyaway Lodge. This is truly an amazing place. We spent as much time as possible enjoying Lake Nancy. Fishing was outstanding! My 3 boys and I had a fun fishing contest one day, we ended up boating a total of 40 bass & pike! Great memories!!! Evelyn is so easy to work with and always willing to help with anything if needed. Can’t wait until next year!
We love having this family back year after year!! They are great guests to have and easy to talk too! Look forward to seeing you next year!!
Spacious, clean, beautiful lake! Loved the property. Would highly recommend
