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 at Flater's Resort, 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 16, 14, 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.

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although it was -17 degrees, we still had a great time. We endured the cold to do some ice fishing right out from the cabin and got a few nice northern :). Very cozy and comfortable cabin. Had everything we needed. Owners were very detailed, helpful, and friendly. We would love to check it out in the summer!

Your place was beautiful, clean, and it accommodated our families well . We had a wonderful time swimming off the dock and canoeing. We even had an all day bean bag toss tournament for all 11 of us and we really enjoyed the nightly campfires . We would recommend your place to anyone who would like to get away and enjoy a stay by the lake. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Lakeshore Chalet Holcombe Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend the accomadations were perfect. Plenty of places for all to sleep and comfortable. The kitchen is small but equipped well. The second kitchen downstairs is a plus. We enjoyed the water and a nighltly fire. The movies and games are a plus to help settle the children down from all the activities available. We would recommend this place for a nice family get together . The peacefulness of the area is great also.
