"This is our second time staying at Sach's North. If you "get" the Northwoods experience, I think you'll absolutely fall in love with this place. During our recent stay we watched fledgling eagles learn to fly over the course of two weeks. Incredible. The back deck and fire pit are just perfect for relaxing anytime of day. The front deck is great too and will shield you on colder, windy days. The fire pit is right by the water and is just perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The sunsets will take your breath away. I've never seen such beautiful ones! The dock is a decent size, and there is room to park your own boat. At the end of July the surface temperature of the water approached 80 degrees for us, so being in the water was very comfortable. It's a rocky/sandy bottom around the dock with no weeds, which makes it nice for swimming. The home is spacious and has lots of nice amenities. The bar and game/TV room downstairs is a great plus--a wonderful place for reclaiming old-fashioned family fun. The master bedroom has a whirlpool bath and a large window overlooking the lake. I've never slept so good. The lake is quiet but ideal for all the usual activities. If you can transport kayaks/canoes, paddling from the nearby park in Winchester to Cedar Lake is amazing. Manitowish Waters has everything you need in the way of groceries, rentals, etc. Mercer has great shops, including the Wampum Shop (lots of gifts--big and small), and Antiques and Stuff around the corner is really cool. We got some old snow shoes and other stuff there to decorate our own log home with at great prices. All the items have great stories behind them. Make time to check out the Skyview for dinner. It's up County W by Presque Isle. There is no better Friday night fish fry in the Northwoods. The sweet and sour walleye is mind blowingly good, and you won't believe the enormous size of the filets. If you like hustle and bustle this isn't the place. If you are looking for maximum relaxation in a rustic yet modernized setting and off-the-beaten-path yet convenient location, this is what you want. The owners are great too. And be sure to take advantage of the "full" cleaning service on your way out. The price is very reasonable, and it allows you to maximize valuable vacation time. We can't wait to return! I've been coming up to the Northwoods since I can remember, and this is my favorite place that we have ever stayed."
