OUTSTANDING PROPERTY ON GREAT FISHING LAKE

Chetek House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The property is located in the Blue Diamond Recreation area between Chippewa Falls & Chetek. Marshmiller Lake is a 436 acre lake with excellent fishing. I purchased this land in 2002 and built this home. I did a lot of the work myself. The home has two 9 ft trapezoid windows, one 9 ft casement window and a 9 ft french door all facing the lake.The french door opens onto a 10 ft x 38 ft deck and a 8 ft x 28 ft porch. The main floor of the home boasts a living room with gas fireplace, dining room and kitchen featuring the open concept and all rooms have a great view of the lake. The 2 bedrooms on the main floor are very spacious and there is a full bathroom. The upstairs has large master bedroom area, full bathroom and a loft sitting area with a great view of the lake. The deck has plenty of room for enjoying the sun, woods &  wildlife and if it rains the porch offers plenty of room for relaxing out of the elements.The home also has central air conditioning and a full basement with a washer and dryer. The lake front has a low elevation, sandy bottom and is shallow. There is a paddle boat, canoe and 2 kayaks available for use. Marshmiller Lake is rated as one of the best pan fishing lakes in Wisconsin. It is loaded with nice sized blue gills, crappies and also has a nice population of large mouth bass and northern. Marshmiller is also very popular in the winter with great ice fishing. The lake has been featured several times on Dave Carlson's Outdoors Wisconsin TV program.The property overlooks the lake to the west and we get some fabulous sunsets. There is also a fire pit in the front yard near the lake. This is a great gathering spot in the evening with a nice warm campfire, s'mores and some beverages. The property is located near the Chippewa County ATV trail which connects to many other trails in the area. The Chippewa County Trail is one of the best in the state. The snowmobile trails are also accessible directly from the property. The Chippewa County Forest is located just a few miles down the road and it has hiking trails, horseback riding trails, XC skiing trails, public hunting areas and ATV rentals are available nearby. There are 2 resorts w/full bar/restaurants on the lake. Both resorts also offer pontoon & fishing boat rentals and bait. Although Marshmiller Lake is a decent sized lake at 436 acres, I would not recommend that renters use jet skis or water skis on this lake. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a nice secluded spot this is the place for you.

I've always loved the north woods. My friends, family and I have had many good times at this lake house. We've found this to be an excellent place to relax and unwind. We have only rented this property a few times in the past to close friends and family. My kids have all grown up and I no longer use the property as much as I did in the past. Recently I decided to make this property available as a rental to others.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

I looked for a vacation property like this for many years. I found this property and immediately fell in love with the area. The local people, neighbors and resorts owners are all very friendly people. I also enjoy being located right on the ATV trails, snowmobile trails and lake. The local resorts all have great food and are reasonably priced. Plus when we need an extra boat both resorts on the lake offer rentals.

We get regular visits from geese, duck, eagles, otters, deer and many other animals. The area is heavily wooded, very quiet and private.

A great week

This house was exactly as described. Perfect for quality family time! From the beginning, Bruce was very helpful in answering any and all questions in detail. And trust me when I say, I asked a lot of questions. The kids enjoyed endless hours of water fun. The canoe and kayaks were put to good use daily. There were plenty of games, indoor and outdoor, to enjoy as well. The washer toss game was used daily outside and UNO was the indoor favorite! Every morning the adults enjoyed quiet conversations on the deck. The water views are beautiful and the peaceful surroundings are perfect for escaping on vacation. The sunsets viewed from the deck are incredible. A perfect backdrop for evening cocktails and dinner. The house is well maintained and really does have all the comforts of home. Plenty of kitchen items, extra blankets, soft sheets, a nice selection of movies, and plenty of space indoors and out. Thanks again Bruce for a great week.

Hi Bruce!

Thank you again for everything! The house and property are beautiful. We enjoyed the birds and wildlife tremendously. 3 deer were strolling in the front of the house as we were getting ready to leave, and we listened to an owl and coyotes nearby last night. The eagles, a family of Canada Geese, and a flock of pelicans also kept us entertained. We totally enjoyed the use of the canoe, paddleboat and one of the kayaks. What a perfect lake for those activities. The house itself is very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. We did our best to leave it spotless :-)

Anyway, thanks again Bruce! That goes for the wine too. What a nice surprise. Let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Cindy

Hi Bruce,

Received your deposit check today. WOW! Thanks for being so prompt. Again, thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful lakehouse, and yes, we would definitely consider it again in the future. By the way, we did manage to see one of those gorgeous sunsets!

Hope you have a wonderful summer and are able to enjoy a few days there yourself!

Take care,

Bald Eagles

  • Submitted: Jul 31, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Hi:

We saw the bald eagles in two different spots on the lake. One was near the marsh closer to the house and on that same side of the lake. It looked like there was a nest so we kept our distance. Closer to the upper end of the lake, on the left, we also often saw another eagle who sat in a high limb of the tree. It was really an amazing sight.

My daughter and I took the loft bed and we loved how comfortable it was and how soft the sheets were. The chair that sits in front of the desk in the loft was a huge hit with my daughter who thought the rocking and comfort made for the perfect place to sit and read.

Enjoyed Kayaks

Hi Bruce

We had a wonderful time at your lake house! My cousin really appreciated having air conditioning with the hot, humid weather that was prevalent while we were there. My daughter and I spent many enjoyable hours out on the lake in the kayaks and saw a bald eagle, probably the same one each time we went out. The herons on the marsh edge were also exciting to see.
Thanks again for such a great experience
