THE LOONS LODGE IN THE NORTHERN HIGHLAND FOREST

Trout Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Loons Lodge is part of a small 'quaint resort' called Lake Rest Cabins that offers 3 well furnished lodging overlooking beautiful Little Spider Lake in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin. We are located in the Northern Highlands State Forest minutes north of Minocqua Wisconsin.

The Loon's Lodge has both the charm and appeal of the old resort cabins with the modern amenities that make your stay very peaceful. Satellite TV-Washer and Dryer makes your stay one of great memories. WI-FI is included along with a portable 11000 BTU Air Conditioner (summer only of course) makes this a fantastic place to enjoy.

The Loons Lodge was the first cabin built on Little Spider Lake in 1919. Since then it has undergone several updates and now features an eclectic mix of historic and modern interiors and furnishings. The original fieldstone fireplace and original hard-wood flooring in the living room reflect the historic charm, while the enclosed back porch serves as a game room, featuring a foosball table, and a full-size futon. With a king and a full size bed in one bedroom and a queen size bed in the other, this spacious cottage can accommodate 6 to 8 people comfortably. Additionally, the cabin features a full kitchen, large dining room, two full bathrooms,one of which has been totally remodelded in February of 2013, a laundry area in the basement, and a private deck with a fantastic view overlooking the lake. We offer amenities such as coffee- A large Weber charcoal grill -some spices and a fully furnished kitchen to make you stay as relaxing as possible.

Little Spider Lake is a 236 acre lake that is home to musky, northern, walleye, perch, bass, and blue gill. There is an abundance of eagles, loons, a variety of ducks and blue heron and you may even see an occasional black bear, coyote, wolf, or fox. The lake is great for all types of water sports such as fishing, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boating.

The beauty of the north woods and breath-taking view of Little Spider Lake make Lake Rest Cabins the perfect destination for relaxation, while the area offers recreational activities and diverse attractions for the entire family. Lake Rest Cabins is the perfect vacation setting for you, your family, and friends.

Linda Korsch purchased this cabin in 2003

We purchased this property in 2003 along with another cottage called Baron's Bungalow and turned the property into a small resort called Lake Rest Cabins. The property was purchased from my father, Jim Steiner, and previously was called Jim and Fran's cottages.

We continue to make changes to the cabins such as: laminate flooring in the kitchen/new tile flooring in both bathrooms, AC in living room, WI-FI, Blue Ray DVD, an Ipod docking station!

The Loons Lodge is truly a 'North Woods' cabin and still has the old charm of a rustic cabin but also has been updated with all of the amenities that you can enjoy today. We consider ourselves 'care takers' of this secluded resort area and want to share it with those looking for a sense of peace and quiet.

DON'T MISS A CHANCE TO STAY HERE!

Don't miss a chance to stay here!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our two young adult sons and two of their friends, spent an excellent two weeks at Loon's Lodge. Our boys couldn't stay the whole time, but the cabin was big enough to house all of us without feeling cramped. We even had our golden retrievers along -- still not too cramped. The cabin is beautiful in an authentic, woodsy way, extremely clean and well-stocked. We have been renting cabins for over 25 years and this was the most well-stocked place we've been to (including firewood, linens and towels, kitchen utensils/supplies/spices, and even a washer and dryer with soap and dryer sheets). We loved the indoor fireplace and outdoor firepit with lots of wood. The deck by the house is great for morning coffee and grilling out. The lake is beautiful and clear. We were able to snorkle and see the bottom (about 15'). The dock is a wonderful place to spend the day with just enough sun and shade. We enjoyed using the lake toys and raft. Linda and Ken were the perfect hosts. They seemed to know how much to check in but also gave us our privacy. One of our biggest concerns was how close the neighbors would be; we both work with people so our vacation is our chance to be with each other and not spend time socializing. There were three different couple/families in the cabin next to us and all were friendly but respectful of our desire for privacy. The absolute only downside for us was that fishing was not very good -- hard to tell how much the record hot summer impacted fishing and it was late August. We saw large musky - they just didn't want what we were serving. The sunfish are abundant and tasty though. You will not regret booking some time at Loon's Lodge.

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin exceeded my expectations....Very clean, comfortable and homey! We spent mornings drinking coffee overlooking this beautiful lakes. This cabin is just minutes from shopping and the casino. It was perfect in every way. We went out on the lake with the row boat and had the time of our lives. Ken and Linda recommended PJ's for a burger and it truly was the best burger I have ever had. Thank you for making my first experience to the Minocqua area a memorable one! We will be vacationing here every year now....LOVED IT!!!

A FANTASTIC AND CHARMING PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from a girl's getaway at the lovely Loon's Lodge. Even though the pictures are lovely, they do not do this wonderful place justice. It was so cozy. The furniture was so comfy.The cottage was spotless. The view was so exquisite. The peaceful surroundings recharge the heart and soul. We took the rowboat out and had a blast. The friendly owners (Ken and Linda) recommended a place for us to dine. We will not be able to eat another hamburger without comparing it to PJ's. We are getting prepared to book our return trip. We miss the cottage as much as we miss Ken and Linda. They were so warm and friendly. Can't wait to come back to our quiet place. Ken was kind enough to show us the other two properties. No matter which property they have that would fit your needs,I highly recommend any of their properties!

GREAT VIEWS! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend with our puppy right at the peak of color in the north woods. We love taking pictures, and this was the perfect spot for getting those amazing shots! It's close enough to Minocqua to enjoy the downtown shops and trails, but far enough to feel secluded. We highly recommend Lake Rest Cabins and can't wait to come back next year!

GREAT VACATION LOCATION...COULD IT BE HOME?? WE WISH!!

  • 5 of 5
Ken and Linda were wonderful hosts!! The property had a small problem with water pump (normal homeowners' unforeseeable problem) one morning, and one call to Ken and he had help on the way! K and L made up for the inconvenience, even though we were on vacation and weren't "put out" in any way. They were like friends right from our arrival on!

The setting is quiet and peaceful, allowing us to relax and refresh from our daily grind. The eagles and the loons were entertaining and our family had a great time in our boat out on the lake! We also enjoyed daily walks on the quiet roads nearby, watching for wildlife and not having to dodge traffic. Pictures just can't do justice to this property...clean, tranquil and restful!!
We would highly recommend a stay here!!
