  • Unbelievably Perfect Up North Family Vacation

    "We had high hopes when we booked our stay at this property on Island Lake. Before we booked it, we spent a significant amount of time searching Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan for a cabin that would meet our needs. We were looking for a place that could sleep two families (4 adults, 4 young teenagers) comfortably. Plus, we wanted a place that had plenty of acreage, privacy, good fishing, good swimming and proximity to a town (for groceries, etc.). This cabin seemed like it might be a good fit. We were a little unsure as to whether there would be enough space for two families and whether the lake would really be all that swimmable, but we booked it anyway. I am happy to say that this place met and completely SURPASSED all of our expectations. The cabin is not overly fancy but it is very comfortable, well-kept, big and immaculate. It was just what we were looking for. The owner had it well stocked with everything you could possibly need (from electric frying pans for a pancake breakfast to roasting sticks for marshmallows and hot dogs to binoculars to get a better view of the eagles and loons). There was tons for the kids to do (paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming, fishing, etc.). Plus, it's only a 10-15 min. drive to the town of Wausakee for groceries. Our week at the Island Lake cabin was one of the most relaxing, idyllic, enchanting weeks we've had with our kids in years. We swam every day (for hours on end!). We canoed. We caught fish. We went on mountain bike rides and hikes. We read books. We played board games. We watched the sun rise over the lake. Most of all, we marveled at the wildlife God created all around us. We saw deer frolicking in the lake at dusk. We listened to the haunting calls of the loons in the morning. We watched a bald eagle "fish" 10 yards in front of us - grabbing its prey from the clean lake waters while we floated lazily on tubes. We saw deer, turtles, frogs, fish. We heard coyotes and owls howling and hooting. And we saw bugs flitting here and there in the twilight - from the comfort of the over-sized screened-in gazebo. Essentially, we enjoyed a perfect family vacation. So, all of that said, I can wholeheartedly recommend this property with no caveats. And I can't wait to go back someday!!!"

  • Great family vacation!

    "The house is beautiful and the kitchen is awesome, yes I'm an odd one where I do cook on vacation 😊. Husband and kids did lots of fishing, some biking and I relaxed taking in the beautiful views. Only complaint I have and I'm the only one because kids don't care, but I wished it had air conditioning. Overall it was a great vacation, would definitely recommend this place😊"

  • Wonderful getaway

    "My husband and I rented the Eagles Nest to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and had the most amazing time. The rental is so much cuter than the pictures portray. You are in this cozy cabin with nature all around you, and all the privacy and peace that you could ever want! We spent our mornings with a cup of coffee listening to the loons and our evenings by the amazing fire pit! What more could you ask for on an anniversary getaway? The homeowners were there during our stay and they are the nicest people. They suggested a great place to eat fish fry (Bootleggers) and personally showed us some of the nearby snowmobile trails. It was like being in a B&B, but with more privacy! Needless to say we will be coming up this winter to snowmobile, and again next year to relax."
