CEDAR LAKEFRONT HOUSE, MANITOWISH CHAIN, PET FRIENDLY: THE OTTER HOUSE

Manitowish Waters House Rental Photos and Description

Right on Rest Lake: 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 8-10)

Looking for a true Northern Wisconsin vacation on the famous Manitowish Chain? The Otter House on Rest Lake is both spacious and rustic. 'We didn't realize your place was so big' and 'Wow - you really are right on the lake' are the two most frequent comments we hear.

The Otter House features REAL privacy and a sandy shoreline with access to the entire 10-lake Manitowish Chain in Manitowish Waters. Relax on our large wrap-around deck and new dock, swim from our beach, catch fish right off our fishing pier. Situated on a bay on Rest Lake, the property is only minutes from the conveniences, shopping and dining in town. You can easily go there by boat or take the bike path.

FREE HIGH SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE.

JUST A FEW SPRING AND SUMMER DATES LEFT. BOOK NOW!

Why do we call it the Otter House? A family of the curious animals frequents our shores, as do mink, loons and bald eagles. The Otter House encourages you to spend time outdoors even as it provides all the comforts of a four bedroom, all-season home. Come any season: fall colors are spectacular; snowmobile and ski trails are easily accessed in our quiet, white winters; spring walleye fishing is great on the lake; and in summer the whole Northwoods comes alive!

Wood paneling and vaulted ceilings throughout, as well as a spectacular stone fireplace add to the ambience. Rest Lake is well named. Relax and enjoy!

Located just off Hwy. 51, we are one minute from the Manitowish Waters Airport and Community Center with its kid-friendly playground, golf range, tennis and platform tennis courts. Rhinelander Airport (RHI) is a 50 minute drive.

Jeanne and I have lived in Manitowish Waters since 1991, and I spent my childhood summers here as well. We're avid outdoors people and involved in our community, too. There's nothing like living in a small town.

Tom Joseph purchased this house in 2009

The house is on our family property.

When you rent at the Otter House you will talk directly with the owners. We are right next door (though you won't see us through the woods) if there are any problems. We know the lake, the Chain, and the entire area and can help you have the most enjoyable vacation possible.

Winter Weekend Getaway

  • Submitted: Feb 17, 2014

This was our 2nd stay at the Otter House. We had a great weekend snowmobiling & ice fishing on Rest Lake. We stayed at the Otter House with another family. I would recommend staying at this beautiful home. Plenty of room with an awesome fireplace. My oldest son was sad to leave on Sunday. He wanted to stay longer. These are the memories that last a lifetime.

Family Vacation

The house suited our purposes well. We had the kids and grandkids with us. Take note the property does not allow outdoor fires, which is something we enjoy on our northwoods vacations and sadly we were not informed of this until 2 weeks prior to our arrival.
Owner's Response: We certainly regret that your experience wasn't perfect, though we appreciate the 4 stars. Our property is very wooded and there is no safe place for a fire ring. We do disclose this in our policies and info packet that we send when a reservation is first made. We've updated the amenities description to make it super clear. Thanks for the feedback.

Great Place and Great Hosts

The Otter House was a great experience for our family reunion. Working with the hosts was easy and enjoyable. When we return Up North, this will be the first place we check. The big comment from the family was, "The pictures of the cabin were good, but it is much nicer than the pictures." Definitely a repeat and recommend to others.

Tom, we had a great time at your place. It was clean and had plenty of room. You were very accommodating and thanks for your tip to check out Bent's Camp. We also went to Little Bohemia and had an incredible dinner, drinks and great conversation with the owners. The location was very convenient for everything we needed.
