  • Perfect house for families with kids and dogs

    "My wife and 2 young children stayed at Jim's Hideaway for a week, and we invited several other family members and their kids (total group was 7 adults, 5 kids, and 2 large dogs). In my opinion, this was the perfect property for this type of group. We were easily able to accommodate our large group with 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Bedrooms are located on three levels of the house, which was nice because it gave everybody some space. The kitchen is large and is equipped with up to date appliances. There is also a gigantic kitchen table, which worked out well for our group of 12. The gated patio was fantastic for several reasons - 1, it corralled small children, 2, it gave us an area to air-dry wet dogs after they went swimming, and 3, it was a nice place to hang out and have a drink(s) while overlooking the lake. The beach area is amazing, and from what I've seen, is pretty rare. The waterfront is sand, and there is probably a good 30'x30' sandy area in the water where little kids can comfortably swim. All in all, Jim's Hideaway was outstanding, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone with a large group - especially with kids and dogs. I have paid more money to stay in smaller houses that don't have anything close to the patio and beach this property has."

  • Amazing!

    "We came from Texas to host a family reunion and this house was beyond our expectation! Everything about this home is top of line and absolutely beautiful. The property is quiet and the lake was perfect for swimming. We couldn't believe how often we saw bald eagles. What a treat for us and our kids!"

  • Great Hideaway on a private lake

    "We booked this cabin for a week in early August with our kids and our dogs and had a blast. Highs: the cabin is spacious, well-stocked, and beautiful for a 'cabin'. There are some basic staples in the kitchen and it is pretty easy to cook your meals there. The canoe and kayaks are serviceable. The lake is quite private--we had one other person there for a day, but otherwise we had the whole place to ourselves. The lake is full of iron so has low visibility, but was great for swimming. We had some beautiful sunsets on the lake, just us. The drive to Manatowish Waters or Boulder Junction is not long, so we had an easy time getting out for biking. The hosts were pleasant and accommodating, bringing us a new trolling motor for the boat, and providing a great binder explaining the solar system and the surrounding area. Our dogs had a great time--the lot is private enough that they were able to be themselves! Small issues of wear with a screen door and the boat motor were, to me, expected for a private residence and did not impact my stay. Lows: the lake is surrounded by wetlands, so bugs were an issue. Although this is to be expected in the north woods in August, I would definitely recommend a healthy dose of repellent. Cell phone coverage is spotty, and forget about wi-fi (we have US Cellular). The beds for up to 4 guests are great, but the pull-out sofa is a bit worn. The linens were very clean, but a full-grown adult might not be as comfortable. The lake access is close and there are steps, but the actual bank is a bit steep; anyone with restricted mobility will have trouble. Again, none of these issues interfered with our stay. Recommendations: the lake is quiet for the most part, so it's a great lake for kids, stand-up paddle-boarding, and kayaking (keeping in mind there isn't a sandy beach). We like biking, and the Vilas County trail in Manatowish Waters is really awesome. Park at the community center and you can go up to 40 miles on paved trails that are very scenic. Aqualand Ale House in Boulder Junction provides a nice respite with wi-fi and a trendy menu. Bayfield and the Apostle islands are about 90 min or so away if you're interested in a day trip--a bit far but do-able."

  • Excellent Place to Stay!

    "My wife and I stayed with nancy and Ray for four days chasing snow and cross country skiing. The apartment is a spacious, comfortable and easy place to make a vacation home for a trip. It is everything mentioned in their description and more. Comfortable bed, full kitchen, washer and dryer, and even a garage space for our car!! The kicker was that nancy and Ray are such friendly and easy people to be around. Felt like old friends from the first moment. This place was a score, and we'll check here first for accommodations if we come back to the Minocqua area."
