  • 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."

  • BEAUTIFUL & Fitting our needs

    "What a beautiful place and fits all our needs. The owners are wonderful to let us rent their place and answered our requests with a smile and speed. For our family union,, 13 people, the house is perfect with the hot tub a great plus. THe lake is also great for tubing and water skiing. for the younger set. Also got a lot of fishing in as the chain gives you many choices. The bikes supplied got plenty of use.There is plenty of parking space with areas for yard games as well. To top it all off the firepit with smores ended some days. The views of the lake from the deck or inside was just what we were looking for. We were so pleased we booked it again for next year."

  • 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."

  • Very Relaxing Stay - No frills

    "A long overdue getaway. Very peaceful and we were glad we were the only renters this particular weekend as the property hosts several cabins and a house so the common areas are "shared". I admit we were happy to be alone for the majority of the time. Lovely little beach just steps from our cabin with nice picnic tables and gorgeous sunsets. We could easily load the kayaks from the sandy beach. The brick outdoor fireplace/grill is showing significant signs of wear but we made it work for a little campfire and it did just fine for smores and roasting hot dogs. We also brought our own small grill which is a good idea if you want more reliable grilling just outside your cabin. The cabin is clean and no frills bordering on a little tired. But our bed was comfy so no complaints on that. I think these cabins could be really charming with just a little effort and modest improvements like comfier chairs and things like that. The weather was cool so we used the little furnace and it worked just fine. The surrounding area is the best with truly wonderful bike trails, lakes, parks, hiking, kayaking, restaurants and so forth. No TV or radio - so bring a radio if you want music. We did and enjoyed it. We were able to get a cell signal but inconsistent data feed - which was ok. This wasn't an issue for us."
