4 bed, 2 bath cabin w/ private scenic lake views and 520 feet of sandy lakefront
About Janes Family
My husband and I purchased our first cabin in the north woods to get away from the busy work life in 2001. When he passed away in 2013, I decided to try to keep a north woods place in the family and moved to Gresham Retreat, but share it with other nature lovers to help us justify the costs.
Janes Family purchased this House in 2015
Why Janes Family chose Arbor Vitae
Our lake is a quiet, relatively small lake, which offers peaceful, scenic views and relaxation, but is still a short drive from several large lake chains, 15 minutes from Minocqua, and under an hour to several ski resorts in the U.P. We look forward to every opportunity to get up north to relax by the water and soak in the beautiful and peaceful views.

What makes this House unique
The wide variety of wildlife and birds, beautiful scenic 180 degree lake views and quiet relaxing atmosphere make Gresham Retreat the ideal vacation getaway. We find ourselves spending every minute of every day down by the water. We grill our lunch and dinners by the water, swim in the water, paddle around in the boats, lay out on the dock, and gather around the fire pit for quiet evening campfires. Every evening we enjoy the serene sunsets and watch the muskrat swim back and forth across our frontage, listen to the loons and whip-poor-wills, and soak in the peace and quiet of the north woods. Listen to some of the videos in the gallery or our site: greshamretreat.com for examples of the peaceful atmosphere that guests enjoy daily at Gresham Retreat!

Peaceful and relaxing
Had a good time. Fishing, relaxing, shopping. Had no communication with the property manager. All was well.
This is a third stay at Greshem Retreat. The only complaint I have is how late the check in time is and how early you have to be out. Otherwise this property is beautiful. We had another amazing vacation.
Great family time at a great location.
We had our kids and grandkids with us. Plenty of room in the house. We loved that there was kayaks for everyone! Beautiful sunset view on the lake. The kitchen was fantastic with all the dishware and equipment needed! Loved it!
Nice summer rental
We had a great time! It’s very peaceful and relaxing at Gresham Retreat. The property is excellent and the lake is quiet.
The property was beautiful and private. Perfect for our group of three families with kids.
Kids had hours of fun swimming and the lily pad mat was so much fun for them (and for the adults).
Sunsets were gorgeous!
We would absolutely stay there again.
Just 15 minutes drive to the resort town of Minocqua, which is full of activities, shoppes, restaurants, and entertainment.
