  • great return stay at Schoolhouse Lake

    "We rented the Schoolhouse Lake house for a second time in two years. It's so peaceful, clean, and relaxing. We enjoy watching the herons, eagles, turtles, fish, deer, and other wildlife. We appreciate having so many different items to use on the water. We don't rent the pontoon but use everything else. Fires on the deck were great. The house was very clean--even inside the cupboards--and the queen bed is comfortable. It's great to have so many games, books, magazines, and videos to use at the house. If you don't want them, they are tucked away. Nancy is very helpful and easy to work with. The water level in the lake was higher than the last time we were there, almost to the bottom of the pier. The heron was fishing from the pier. We got some good photos. One thing that the house photos do not show is that the main level floor is pebbles in cement. Nancy has carpets strategically placed, so you don't have to have something on your feet. It's just nice to be aware of it for tender feet. The environment is as pictured. We'll definitely rent from Nancy again. The house is away from town but offers such a great environment that if you are looking for a serene place to relax and renew, this is it. It's easy to drive ten minutes to Hayward or five minutes to Stone Lake. We weren't able to eat at Angler's Haven, but the food looked and smelled great. We had the Friday night fish fry at Trailways Inn, which was very good. We can't recommend Angler's Bar in Hayward. The food was mediocre at best, and we've tried it a couple of times over the years. The folks at the Hayward Visitors Center are extremely helpful every time we are in the area. The new Birkie museum is interesting. We like the area because it is close enough to do day trips to Ashland, Bayfield, Superior, and the north shore area. The numerous state parks are fun to explore as well. You can't beat the beauty of Wisconsin."

  • Perfect! Clean, super comfortable, beautiful location

    "After 30 years of hit and miss lake cabin experiences - this one was finally JUST PERFECT! The well appointed, wonderfully private, and nicely updated log home includes it's own sweet little inlet and a great little beach for embarking in kayaks to explore a secluded and quiet chain of deep, small lakes. Very comfortable and clean beds and furniture, plenty of table lamps for the readers in the bunch. Well stocked kitchen - not one unpleasant surprise. Not ONE! We'll be back! ...P.S. Only 10 minutes from Birchwood - highly recommend the Paul's Pizza Den there - the smoked baby back ribs are amazing, and the Bear Bait dessert is scrumptious!"

  • Wonderful Cabin!

    "My family and I had an opportunity to stay at the Walker cabin in August, and had an absolute fabulous week. The cabin was extremely clean, and well stocked with everything you would need for an enjoyable vacation. I grew up in the area, and have always loved spending time on long lake! Thanks to Vern and Sherry for helping to make our trip memorable~"

  • Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

    "This was our second stay at Wayne and Jean's Pine Cone Retreat and we had a fabulous week! From sitting on the front deck watching and listening to the loons, to fishing off our boat and swimming off the dock...we couldn't have asked for a better time. The weather was absolutely perfect the week we were there with temps in the upper 70's to low 80's. It was beautiful! The house is fully furnished with everything you could possibly want. There is plenty of room to spread out and do a variety of things. We spent a lot of our time on the deck just chilling as it's so relaxing. We watched t.v. as a family in the large area in the basement along with played some games on the table down there as well. There are a variety of games kept in the downstairs cupboards and our boys enjoyed those. The highlight of our trip this year was being able to get to all 5 of the lakes with our pontoon! We did that on a couple of the days and fished in a few different lakes, but we found our best fishing to be right in Spider 1 were the cabin is located. We caught bluegills, crappies, bass and bullheads during our stay there. We saw a few Northern Pike, but we weren't able to land those. Maybe next year! We enjoyed our stay so much that we've already booked a week long stay for next July! We love it there!"
