One of the finest log homes in Northern Wisconsin, with all the amenities. Located on private Carpenter Lake (365 acres) just 5 miles from Eagle River off of Highway 70 east. We are just 2 miles from the Nicolet National Forest. Because Carpenter is a peaceful lake, we have a nesting pair of loons that return every year to raise their young on a little island called 'loon island'. Eagles fly by and sometimes perch in the pines. Game fish include bluegills, crappies, northerns, walleye, small and large mouth bass. A few muskies have been caught but not many. The lake is very clear and without algae. There isn't any public boat launch but the Chain of Lakes (28 lakes connected) is just a few miles down the road.
This new home was built in July 2008 with the extras and comfort in mind. The furnishings for the home are 'Northwoods' oriented. All the beds are log beds. You'll find Northwoods themed lighting, bear lamps, moose pillows and sconces with pine trees. The gas fireplace with river rock has a half log mantel. The front of the log home is all glass reaching 31 feet high. Walk through the sliding glass doors onto the huge deck to a view that overlooks the lake and the tall pines. The house has 2 zone air conditioning and heating, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood floors, and travertine in the 3(full) bathrooms. All the bedrooms are carpeted. We have plenty of parking for boats or snowmobile trailers.
Need more room? We have a 10,000 SF B/B resort next to the house which has antiques galore and 9 more bedrooms plus a game room. It is a quiet, romantic B/B and doesn't allow young children for that reason.
In the winter, 2 snowmobile trails are located by our road. Step out the door, climb on your snowmobile and hit the trails. There's also ice fishing everywhere on our lake and neighboring lakes. Cross country ski and snow shoe at anvil trail just 3 miles down the road in the Nicholet National Forest.
This log home is one of the nicest to be rented out in Northern Wisconsin and is great for groups, family reunions, small weddings, business seminars or your luxury vacation.

We purchased original log home in 1998. December 5th, 2007, a terrible fire destroyed the entire house. We decided to rebuild the vacation house bigger and better but without a wood burning fireplace this time! (For obvious reasons). We replaced it with a gas fireplace however. Carpenter Lake is such a peaceful area that if one is looking to relax, you have it all here.
