  • My Excellent North Woods Adventure!

    "Oh my - what can I say? - about a thousand wonderful things actually! Oak and Fern captured the very essence of the North Woods - and re-awakened my memories of my childhood summers in the upper Midwest (Minnesota and Wisconsin) area. I wish I could have taken that pine smell back to KC with me! This was not only special to me, celebrating my 70th birthday - but every single member (thirteen of us) of the family was blown away - even my 15 year old grandson and that's saying something! The attention to detail in every room of these fabulous log homes (can you really call them mere cabins?) was spot on! Yet, there was no 'furniture showroom' feel - there was a genuine, creative, and yet homey ambience. Everything you need for your stay is available. (although we would remind future guests to read the information package and locate the 'storage closets' on your first day and not in the middle of your stay - (I didn't say we're very bright. :) And not only the cabins are wonderful - but the property is gorgeous, the amenities for relaxing by the fire - or playing on the lake are great. We rented a pontoon boat for 'cruising' and wave runners for the kids - my son-in-law brought his paddle board. The lake is serene, cool and crystal clear - so very different from the Lake of the Ozarks - or Table Rock Lake in the Midwest. As a surprise for my birthday celebration, my children hired a professional photographer to take family photos - I can't WAIT to see them! Speaking of photos, we took hundreds while there - but I didn't realize there are 'welcome to Oak(Fern) cabin' signs - and I would love to have a photo of those. Wade, if you have photos of the signs, could you post them on Facebook? We've been back home for 4 days now - but my heart and soul are still at Star Lake! We WILL be back! (PS - we left a perfect puzzle for future guests - The Great Lakes - with Wisconsin smack-dab in the middle!)"

  • Shady, Peaceful Retreat

    "All as advertised. A well-done cabin tucked back away at the back of a larger property. The cabin was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much."

  • Fantastic northwoods lake house!

    "We loved our week at the lake here. The lake is incredibly clean and use of the boats really let us make the most of it. The house is marvelous with nice views and plenty of light. The host let us know everything we needed to be aware of and them some. Top notch."
