About Megan Marsh
My husband, Gabe, grew up in northern WI on Butternut Lake and enjoyed many family trips and 4th of July celebrations in Minocqua. As a couple, we had one of our first dates here over the 4th of July in 2009, and ever since it has been a very special place for us. We've returned year after year while always keeping our eye on the market for the "right" place to come along, and we've finally found it!!
Megan Marsh purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Megan Marsh chose Minocqua
We love the character & history of older homes. Pine Cove was built in 1929, making her 90 years-old this year! Lake Katherine, as anyone in the area will tell you, is truly a gem of a lake with excellent fishing & recreational opportunities. The water is crystal clear and calm with a sand & rock bottom. There are no resorts or condo complexes on the lake which adds to the private & laid back feel of this area. The nearest public road, Sylvan Shore Drive, offers a great place to walk or run with smaller undulating hills & unbeatable lake views. Nearby Minocqua offers great dining, shopping & recreational activities, but when we want to get away from it all we feel completely "off the grid" back at the cabin.

Incredible Getaway Spot
The place, location, and service were incredible. Pictures can't do this property the justice it deserves. It's a picturesque spot on the lake and everything in the home is furnished beautifully.
They have thought of everything you might need or want while getting away to the north woods for a little getaway. Megan (one of the owners) was super helpful and very attentive to any questions we had while not interrupting our stay at the home. Would highly recommend this location. It was one of our best home rentals stays ever!
Don't forget to bring your own sheets and towels (They have the comforters and pillows). We overlooked that at first.
Brian, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review! Lake Katherine/Minocqua is so beautiful this time of year!!
Pine Cove Review
Pine Cove is the ultimate old meets new. Beautifully restored and updated vintage cabin on one of the best lakes in the Oneida Vilas area.
Hope you'll join us again soon!
Perfect piece of heaven Up North!
Another great stay at Pine Cove! The Marsh family has created a wonderful welcoming respite for visitors, by blending old with new and allowing anyone lucky enough to find it, to feel as though they are "coming home"! The location on Lake Katherine, the view from the sunny, window-lined 4-season porch, the welcoming front door into the roomy and comfortable living area warmed by the beautiful fireplace, the stylish and fully stocked farm-style kitchen, comfortable beds (each with amazing Pendleton blankets!), a spacious lower level with ping-pong and darts and more sleeping areas - are all just part of what help to make a weekend (or longer) away the perfect getaway experience.
We had a great winter weekend at Pine Cove with family members from around the state (11 of us stayed comfortably, and 3 more made day visits - and we never felt we were crowded); games (at the huge farmhouse table on the porch, by the fireplace, and downstairs), sledding, ice-fishing, lake walks to nearby islands, cooking and eating, and finishing a 2,000 piece puzzle in two days. Everyone fell in love with the cottage and the location and we want to make it an annual event - specifically at Pine Cove! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful memory-making spot!
Marcy and family,
Thanks so much for joining us again! We love having return guests and hearing about their experiences from year to year or during the different seasons. We’re happy to hear you found so many ways to enjoy the winter weather at Pine Cove!
Enjoyable in every season!!
This was our second time staying at Pine Cove Cabin, but the first time coming in the winter months. It is just as beautiful and enjoyable as it was last summer! Inside was warm, comfortable and cozy with the gorgeous fire crackling. Outside, we had so much fun in the snow and on the ice catching fish! We even brought sleds for the kids and they had a blast! Thanks to Gabe and Megan for always exceeding our expectations. We can't wait to get back to our favorite spot in the northwoods!
Thanks so much for staying with us! We'd love to have you back!
Beautiful Winter Cabin for our Family
Amazing property...seriously. Our family of 6 went in January as a winter cabin getaway and had so much fun. The property has an awesome sled hill that entertained all of us for hours and ice skating right there on the lake was so much fun. We hiked around the beautiful frozen lake Katherine and getting to Minocquoa was a super short drive. The cabin is beautiful and can easily host 2 families. Megan is wonderful with great info for us to plan our trip. We absolutely loved it and look forward to our next visit. ♡
Thanks so much for sharing some of the details of your winter getaway with us! We hope you'll be back soon!!
Spectacular winter get away
Pine Cove on Lake Katherine is a spectacular winter get away with all the amenities of home. The cabin and property are meticulously maintained and the decor is reminiscent of a classic northern Wisconsin lake cabin. We spent our weekend relaxing in front a fire in the fieldstone fireplace. For outdoor activities, we tried our hand at ice fishing right off the shore of the cabin and had great success catching largemouth and walleye. The kids loved sledding down the back hill and ice skating on the lake. This is our second winter stay at Pine Cove, and we'd highly recommend it.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We would love for you to join us again! We agree that winter at the lake is pretty great. :)
The town of Minocqua is a 5-minute drive from our cabin. Be sure to catch the Min-Aqua Bats water ski show on Wed., Fri. or Sun. nights. There is a wonderful annual fireworks display on the 4th of July! Access to the Minocqua chain of lakes is less than 5 minutes away by car. Day trips to Eagle River or the ski resorts in the UP are fun activities! We are located about 1-mile from the Bearskin Trail. The area also offers zip lining, horseback trailrides, SUP yoga, and outdoor gear rentals for use on the lakes & the Bearskin Trail. There are also public beaches & parks along various lakeshores in the area. Fishing guides are available, and there are plenty of small and large mouth bass in Lake Katherine for you to catch without a guide! The area is great for winter activities too, such as: ice fishing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and traveling a short distance to downhill ski.
