WHISPERS OF THE WILDERNESS

Minocqua House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Escape the hustle and enjoy the north woods as it is meant to be--with pristine, unspoiled vistas, peace, and quiet. We are located on a peninsula on the 200 acre Wind Pudding Lake (currently lower and smaller due to a prolonged drought) and with 450 feet of frontage and water on three sides. Our house is situated just 60 feet for the shore and commands panoramic 180 degree views.

You will see no neighbors and and have this virtually undeveloped lake for yourself! This lake has limited public access, no resorts, so you can enjoy the serenity. The lake is a beautiful combination of open water with 34 foot depths and areas of lily pads and sedge grasses that attracts a variety of birds and fish. The lake front is unspoiled and teeming with wildlife.

The north woods is still recovering from a prolonged drought and lake levels throughout the region, including ours, are down, but rapidly rising. However this summer the larger part of our 200 acre lake may be inaccessible by boat from our pier. But there is a beautiful, usable part of the lake directly in front of our house. So if you are looking to water ski, use jet skis, motor boat, our lake is not where you would want to vacation. If, however, you wish to have peaceful, relaxing vacation with complete privacy (there are no neighbors in sight), where you can swim, enjoy the eagles nesting on the nearby island, do a little canoeing, fish for something other than trophy fish, we can't be beat.

This property is also available for purchase. If you purchase, rental price up to $1400 will be deducted from purchase price.

This home tucked away in the woods was so beautiful and relaxing. The kitchen is very well stocked and the views are gorgeous. We were there during peak color and it was amazing. Very well maintained and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was especially wonderful to work with and I would recommend this home rental to everyone.

Our family had a very nice time in this very well kept home. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The setting is beautiful and very quiet. The lake is small because of lots of beautiful water lilies growing around the edge, but we still enjoyed paddling the canoe and row boat around. We were there on 3 very warm days as well so swimming and floating with the life jackets on was peaceful and nice. The rental process was easy and the owners were very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend this setting for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The surrounding area offers lots of activities for children and families to enjoy.

anniversary couple

These owners are very caring, compassionate people. They understood that we had a family medical emergency when our beloved golden retriever who is just like one of our children, went into sudden kidney failure, and has required IV fluids administered by us at home not leaving her side all this week, during the week of our planned trip, and no one else can provide this care to her. We had to cancel our anniversary weekend in this beautiful home in Northern Wisconsin, and hope to rent it again in the future. They were very compassionate and refunded our money since we were unable to stay. We would certainly chose such caring and understanding people to rent from in the future. This property appears to be a great secluded get away with a beautiful view at a great value.

Just What We Were Looking For

We were very pleased with our stay here! The location is beautiful and offers views of local wildlife in a very peaceful setting. The home is exceptionally clean and includes virtually everything you will need during your stay. Only 15 minutes from Minocqua, so if you're not into fishing there are lots of other things you can do closeby, including horseback riding, biking, go carts, shopping, great restaraunts (you have to check out the Thirsty Whale!), and on and on. We rented bikes in Minocqua and checked out the Bearskin Trail, which is really beautiful. Even just biking around the local roads is great. This particular lake isn't the place for watersports like skiing or boating due to low water levels, but that is mentioned in the description above. Don't let the rough driveway scare you - this one is a real gem!

This is a beautiful property. The house is very nice and very clean. The lake level is down quite a bit. It is good for fishing but not for swimming. Woods are very nice.

Owner's Response: The good news is we are being blessed with abundant rainfall. We've had 7 inches of rain so far this month already.
