Overview

About the property

Surround yourself in nature's tranquil beauty: walking, hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, snowmobiling, and ATV adventures in the area around this property make it perfect for the avid outdoor enthusiast. This four season home in a quiet neighborhood includes 100 feet of shoreline, two docks, a gas grill, and firepit. Summer season includes a basketball hoop in the driveway. For wildlife lovers, sightings of deer, bald eagles, and the sounds of evening frogs are extremely common. And with one of the best views of the sunset on the lake, relaxing by the fire makes for a truly memorable experience.

This custom-remodeled, classic chalet with modern upgrades is ideal for entertaining, with spacious living areas and panoramic lake views from upstairs and down. Luxury finishes abound and include solid wood floors, two remote-controlled fireplaces, two fully-stocked kitchens, laundry room, bar area, DVD and video game consoles, and a loft that commands an amazing view of the lake.

Local highlights include county parks with public beaches, several restaurants and taverns (many with live entertainment), musky fishing tours, ATV and snowmobile trails, and summer music festivals.

About Scott and Shelley Janke

Shelley and Scott Janke live in a small town in central Wisconsin, not much larger than Holcombe. As a child, Scott used to spend time on Lake Holcombe and the Chippewa River at his parent's cabin about 10 miles from Lakeshore Chalet. When he met Shelley and her two boys, he shared that experience with them, and together they decided to purchase a place of their own on Lake Holcombe. Scott and Shelley have three wonderful children, ages 17, 15, and 2 years. This gives them a unique insight into the needs and wants in a vacation property for families with teenagers and small children.

Scott and Shelley Janke purchased this chalet in 2016

Why Scott and Shelley Janke chose Holcombe

This cabin became available the day after calling a realtor regarding a different property. His suggestion to look at this custom-remodeled A-frame turned out to be a great suggestion, and we fell in love with it right away. From its unique outward appearance, to its spiral staircases, we knew this was exactly the home that we could enjoy ourselves and be proud to share with others.

Wisconsin weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time overall. Property owners were attentive and easy to communicate with. The kids enjoyed the lakefront, boating and swimming in the lake (some for the first time!). The chalet has a great location on the lake with a beautiful view. Highly recommend.

Nice Place!

  • 4 of 5

WE had a really good time! The area is beautiful! The house is very nice. The kitchen / dining area doesn’t really accommodate 12 people at one time, so we just ate in shifts, which worked okay. It would work better for 6-8 people. The location is very beautiful and the house was clean!

We had a fantastic time at this house. There was plenty of room for our group, the house was well equipped, comfortable furniture and beds, and everything we needed .We had a great weekend of playing games, tubing on the lake, emjoying the bonfire, and of course eating. Everyone wanted to book this house again for next year. I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Property was very nice.

  • 3 of 5

Loft was to warm to use as sleeping area. Lack of parking was difficult for my family. Overall had a great time on the lake.

Owner's Response: Todd, Thank you for the review! We are happy to hear that you had a good time, but we're sorry to hear that the loft didn't work for your family because of the warm weather. We do realize that it is an issue, and will hopefully have a resolution in the future. As far as parking, we know that there is limited space, especially for a large party, and that too is something that we hope to make better someday. Again, thank you for the review, and we hope that you will choose to stay with us again! Scott and Shelley
