  • Perfect for our honeymoon!

    "My bride and I rented this cabin for the week following our wedding. We live in Sheboygan, WI and planned a wedding in the north woods of Wisconsin at a resort. After our time at the resort we wanted to get away from people/crowds for our honeymoon and this place was perfect. The log cabin is an original 1930s cabin but but with all necessary modern amenities. The views from the main bedroom or the porch overlooking Rest Lake are beautiful. Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the boathouse porch. We took advantage of the use of the pontoon boat to get to other lakes on this 10 lake chain of lakes. And we took the canoe out to an island for a picnic. My bride and I are also avid bicyclists and this place is perfect for a bicycling fan. There is a new blacktop bike trail that begins at the end of the road and this trail is extensive. We rode it from Manitowish Waters to Boulder Junction and then on to Sayner. Very scenic. I know the trail connects to St. Germain too, but we had reached our max at that point. The towns of Manitowish Waters and Boulder Junction are surprisingly fun. We found some great supper clubs and taverns (Little Bohemia, Blue Bayou, White Oak Grill, the Pea Patch, Aqualand Ale House, Smokeys). Aqualand has a great tap beer list and White Oak was very impressive for fine dining. There were also some great shops in Boulder Junction for keepsakes from the north woods. This place made us so comfortable and we had so many things to do that we actually went the whole week without checking our phones or e-mails. Oh, another thing that surprised me was the sandy bottom of the lake immediately in front of the cabin. Great for swimming. No seaweed. This place was great for us and I could imagine it being great for couples with kids too. The hosts were also great. They live next door to this cabin so they are available for information or help if necessary. But they also had the decency not to interrupt us during our vacation. Great people, great cabin, and great vacation."

Thank you Ken and Linda"

  • 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."

  • 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."
