Overview

Minocqua House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Shoreview is on a quiet bay on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Shishebogama, just 7 miles west of charming Minocqua Wisconsin.

Guests love the beautiful tile floors, wood ceilings, stainless steel appliances, hickory cabinets and abundant windows in the Lakehouse. We have a huge screened porch with comfortable seating, table and chairs for outside dining and a large wood deck overlooking the lake.

Each of the 3 levels in the lakehouse offer beautiful lake views! The main level has a living and dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. The upper level has 2 huge bedrooms, each with a queen bed and daybed and a shared bathroom. The lower level has a recreation room, bedroom and bathroom!

Summertime on Lake Shish is wonderful! We have 3 docks, a swimming raft and a private boat launch for your fishing or ski boat. We also provide a rowboat, 2 kayaks and a small canoe for those wanting a little more exercise! A state-owned island, with hiking trails, can be seen from the lakehouse! You are sure to see some of the Northwoods wildlife. These include bald eagles, loons, beaver, blue herons and much more.

Shoreview is great in the fall and winter, too! The beautiful colors of autumn reflect in our serene lake! A brisk hike or bike ride on the Minocqua's Bearskin trail is a memorable experience. We are on a snowmobile trail and just minutes from Winter Park, with cross country skiing at it's best! Or just clamp on snowshoes and cross a frozen Lake Shish!

Summer rentals run from Saturday to Saturday and we have loyal guests returning each year. Occasionally we have an opening but the best chance of securing a week during the summer is the first part of June and last week of August.

About The Owner

Hello,

We love to take vacations!! And we understand how important it is to spend your precious time and money in a comfortable and affordable home away from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Minocqua

Our family has vacationed in the Northwoods of Minocqua since our children were small. Our most memorable moments have been hiking, biking, boating, star-gazing, card-playing, etc. etc. with our children, and their aunts, uncles and cousins on a lake near Minocqua. We purchased 3 rustic cottages in 1990, replacing 2 of them in 2007 with our wonderful lake house.....check the photos! Now we our grandchildren are enjoying beautiful Lake Shish with us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paul and Kathy,

We really enjoyed our stay at your lake house. It was perfect for us. I was amazed on how homey it was, very comfortable, had everything we needed, and more. The skiing was fantastic, perfect cold weather and perfect snow. After long days of skiing, it was so nice to come back to your warm house where we played games, had hot chocolate, and enjoyed the ample space. We played family games upstairs around the big dining table, and the kids made plenty of use of the play room downstairs, playing Wii games and dancing. We enjoyed the views of the lake out the back windows. The beds were very cozy, everything so clean. The back porch area really sparked our interest for summer and fall, I bet it is great to sit out there and watch the sun set over the lake.

Thank you so much for sharing your house with us, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Signed,

Jim (dad), Margaret (mom), Kristen (14), and Jenna (10)

and

Jeff (dad), Rita (mom), Dominic (14), and Vincent (11).

The kids are cousins. It is so nice to have the cousins share such special childhood moments, moments and memories that will last a lifetime. Your lake house added to our special moment this year. We all voted this house the best vacation house we have stayed in. That is saying a lot, because we travel as a group throughout the midwest, and have stayed in many houses.

Happy New Year!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shoreview recently for a snowmobiling trip. Our group had 9 and there was plenty of room for everyone, we also loved how open the kitchen, dining room, and living room were. We could spread out and still be able to chat with everyone. We had 2 trucks and trailers and we had places to park them off the road which was great. There was also room to park all our sleds in front of the house. It was great that we were able to open up the boat ramp to access the lake/trails. We will be returning customers. Thank you so much!

Winter fun for 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful winter location and accommodations for family gathering of three generations. Snowshoeing, sledding, fort-building and ice fishing were enjoyed on site, with cross country skiing and tubing only minutes away. This lovely home was spacious, with gorgeous views of the lake and fully equipped with all necessities for ages 17 months to 64 years. We hope to make this "Winter Family Get-Away" a yearly event. :)

SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5

Beyond beautiful! Everything you need in one spot. Beautiful updated, fully stocked home with a beautiful view. We had direct access to snowmobile trails and what a wonderful view of the lake! Was wonderful watching the Eagles come down on the lake for scraps one of the neighbors had left them. I just can't say enough how spectacular it was, beyond what the description shows. The grounds keeper Dave did anything he could to make this accommodating for our trucks and trailers and was so pleasant to talk to. The owners worked with us right up to the last minute to make our vacation wonderful!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home place over Thanksgiving this year and had a wonderful time. The owners are very nice people and great to work with. The house is very accommodating, easy to access, and within a short drive to Minoqua. The lake is one of the premier lakes in the Minoqua area. The surrounding area is beautiful. I would highly recommend this vacation property. Thank you so much for a wonderul time.

Wonderful, roomy, comfortable home on a spectacular lake

  • 5 of 5

Hi Kathy,

We are back in California after a long day of travel yesterday from Northern Wisconsin, exhausted but happy.

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your Lake House on Lake Shishebogama. It worked very well for our family. We felt so blessed to have found such a comfortable, beautiful home at a perfect location near our family's compound on Marion Lake. You did a great job of designing the Lake House and it is so well maintained. It's the nicest of all the homes I've rented for family vacations over the years in CA and Nevada. We would recommend it to anyone, including those, like us, with a young child. Having the pack and play and a booster seat helped us so much. We hope to return to your home in the future when we make our way, once more, up North.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, Lois! So glad that your family enjoyed your week's stay while in the area for a wedding. Northern Wisconsin is beautiful every season, especially in the autumn. We hope you were able to see the loons and bald eagles that make Lake Shishebogama so special! Please visit us again!

Lake Shish-Shoreview Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Wow, JR, you must have been looking for a different experience than was advertised and pictured in the Shoreview Lake House! Our family has vacationed on this property even before the beautiful lake house was constructed. The "whole story" is that this Lake Shishkabagama House is the best rental property we have ever stayed in. We want a place that has access to a boat ramp in order to put our boat into the water. How convenient that the ramp is right on the property. Yes, the highway is nearby, but that makes the trip to the lake just a little bit shorter. And our kids are so anxious to get there each year that even an extra 10 minute ride down a long unpaved road would seem unbearable. When I sit on the gorgeous screened-in porch I hear the frogs and loons and sometimes the screech of an eagle as it catches its meal right in front of the house. Yes there are neighbors, but I didn't expect a deserted lake front. My guess is the owners do not show photos of the neighboring properties because they are not trying to rent them. All I know is we have spent many wonderful family vacations at this property and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
