Are you and your family looking for a northern WI retreat on big water where you can get away, have fun, relax, and make lasting memories? Your search has ended - Welcome to The Getaway Chalet on Scattering Rice Lake. This custom built, and just renovated lower level, chalet home sleeps up to 20 people with 5 bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms.
As you enter the newly updated and refurnished home, you are welcomed by a large, open living space with walls of windows that overlook a tranquil view of Scattering Rice Lake. Scattering Rice Lake is a full recreation lake. Scattering Rice Lake is part of the chain of 28 lakes - the largest in the world. Why be limited to one lake while you vacation? Here you can spend endless hours exploring 28 beautiful lakes! This home is also situated near Dollar Lake that hosts the annual Pond Hockey Tournament. It's an approximate drive of 5 minutes to Dollar lake. Scattering Rice is one of the best on the chain as it offers those that stay there a quite part of the chain to enjoy, but the access to the bigger lakes for additional recreation. Sometimes it's nice to get away from all of the main action on the chain so that you can relax and enjoy the quiet of up north!
The property is situated on a beautiful lot that offers plenty of space for the kids where they can play, ride their bikes, etc... The yard is large, and has a dry boat house where you can store your water toys, and the dry boat house also offers an additional area to hang out on so that you can watch the family play in the lake or fish. Scattering Rice Lake also has a sand bottom lake. As you enter the lake, it is only 2-3 feet deep for the first 10-15 yards so it makes a great place for children to hang out in and play. Sunshine pours onto this yard all through the day, and offers an AMAZING sunset as the home faces west. Spend your evenings sharing the events of the day around the fire pit - firewood is included. We offer the following for your outside enjoyment: gas grill, fire pit, patio furniture, hammock for relaxing, 2 paddle boards, 2 kayaks, and a paddle boat. In addition there is a private pier for your boat, and fishing enjoyment.
The deck and the boat house offer patio tables and chairs so that you can relax and enjoy the outdoors. In addition to all of the great spots outside, there is also a beautiful attached screen porch with patio furniture - great place to relax or play some card games with the family!

Seasons at the Getaway Chalet at Scattering Rice Lake:
Summer enjoyment - Most of your time will likely be spent enjoying the property, and all of the enjoyment the lakes have to offer. At night, family games in the home around the stone fireplace, or songs and laughs around the fire pit. There are two national forests in the area for hiking, exploring, bike riding, etc.... Although secluded, and away from hustle and bustle, a benefit to this property is that it is only 5 minutes from down town Eagle River, that offers plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment. There are many neighboring communities to visit as well. You will see a lot of wildlife while visiting, including deer and bald eagles. Scattering Rice Lake Rd offers a beautiful, safe place to take a long walk or bike ride if you choose. For those that enjoy golf, there are many options in the area! How often can you just throw your clubs in the boat and drive a lake over to golf? Well, here you can as Lake Forest Golf Course is just a quick boat ride away!
Fall: When the leaves are changing, there may only be a few other places more beautiful for viewing than the north woods of WI! Plenty of ATV trails to explore this time of the year. Annual Cranberry Fest is also a well attended attraction every year.
Winter enjoyment: The lake will offer ice fishing, ice skating, and cross country skiing. Eagle river is also considered the snow mobile capital of the world with over 500 miles of groomed trails that can be easily accessed right out the front door of the property.
