About Robert Kern

First; thank you very much for considering Kern's Great Escape on Lower Buckatabon lake. LeeAnn and I first learned of this area when we honey- mooned in Eagle River in 1981. That was the best week of our lives. Our promise to each other was to find a special 'someplace' that would keep our honeymoon memories alive. In 1992 we found it. Please come join us and hopefully you will find that special memory that will be with you always.

Robert Kern purchased this house in 1992

We spent a week in early August at this lovely place! Outstanding view of the lake from the large cabin yard and deck. Four adults fit very comfortably with the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was nice to have a boat landing on the property with the use of two piers for docking. The large sandy area between the docks would be an ideal spot for little ones to play in. We enjoyed floating on floats in this area as well. Especially enjoyed watching the eagle family and their young and the family of loons on various parts of the lake. We found that both the upper and lower lakes were relatively quiet. Just a beautiful area! All in all it was a great trip. We would highly recommend it.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week up there in July and had the best time! A couple thoughts:

Lake Buckatabon - We spent a whole day wakeboarding and skiing in lower Buckatabon and we were the only boat in the area. Quite a luxury for July in Eagle River. They have a nice little sandbar/island in the middle of the lake that works well to park the boat and have a couple drinks, swim and throw a football around. The fishing was great too- we caught tons of bass, a couple northern and some pan fish.

The cabin - The owners do a great job keeping up with the property and it shows. They told me the porch on the back was new this year. We spent hours on the porch looking out at the lake, drinking coffee, eating. The porch gets great sun all day, from sunrise to sunset. We had 7 people and everyone slept in a comfortable bed and the kitchen was large enough for big group meals. Firepit and grill outside. Lots of grassy area for yard games and the private boat launch and dock is quite a convenience.

The area - If you're looking to get away.. you can't beat a vacation to the north woods of Wisconsin. I took a canoe ride starting at Lake Buckatabon and down the Wisconsin River for about 3 miles and it was absolutely breathtaking. Bond Falls, about 30 minutes away is a beauful waterfall to hike around. Good golfing. If the ladies need to shop, head into town. Great restaurants too.

I'd certainly recommend Kern's great Escape (Just don't steal my week in July, I'm hoping to go again next year.)

Caught fish every day.

  • 5 of 5

"We were delighted to find such a nice, clean house for our family's week long stay. The information and directions from the owner were excellent. The views over the lake were spectacular. Unfortunately, the weather was cool and windy. But the guys went out and fished every day, and we ended with two nice fish suppers. I really enjoyed the level lot since my mother has trouble with steps. Bob, the owner knows the area vey well and gave us two great dinner spots.

My favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

A week away at this cabin will leave you planning your next trip there. From the cozy feeling inside to the beautiful pier on the lake, it's the perfect escape for a family. We spend the days fishing, boating on the lake and relaxing at night on the pier taking in the beautiful scenery. It's the best northern Wisconsin retreat I have ever been to!

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at Kern's Great Escape. I stayed here with my immediate and extended family (10 people) in July and we will be coming back! The home is so spacious but still feels cabin cozy. We spent our time fishing, grilling, boating, relaxing on the pier and playing board games by the fire. If you're looking for the best place to relax and enjoy the beauty of northern Wisconsin, this is it!

There's no better way to relax than at this perfect vacation get-away. The home offers all the conveniences and comfort of one's home, yet is nestled in a beautiful up north setting. Enjoy a sunny lakefront, fishing, swimming, campfires, a canopy of limitless nighttime stars, and a great view of the moon. A true up north gem!
