Hello, and thank you for visiting our vacation rental. My family and I purchased this log home in October of 2008. We have been coming to the Northwoods all our lives. My husband has family in the Rhinelander area and we love the beauty and tranquility the Northwoods has to offer.
Chris Craig purchased this house in 2008
We chose this area because of it's pristine beauty. The majestic red pines swaying in the breeze takes my breath away. The view of a Bald Eagle swooping over the shimmering, crystal blue water is magnificent. The brilliance of the Northern Lights is unmatched by any fireworks display.
We love to sit on the front porch in the morning with our coffee and paper and watch the dew evaporate off the grass and just listen to the birds. Roasting marshmallows by the campfire is a special treat for the kids. The evening is so wonderful with the sunsets and at night, after we put the kids to bed, we turn on the exterior lights over the deck and read by the window - there is something spectacular about viewing the trees through this artificial light...it's breathtaking.
I'll start off by saying that our two weeks at the Craig's log home (read home not cabin) on picturesque Bass Lake seemed more like a couple days! It is just too perfect, and the time zooms by way too fast!
This was our second summer at this very, very special place on this perfect lake. Last year we stayed in this beautiful home for one week. That was too short. This year it was two weeks; once again too short! The pictures provided here are accurate, but do not do the reality justice. It is stunningly beautiful!!!
There were ten of us there, but this home is so huge and perfectly arranged it never ever seemed crowded in the least. My gosh, there is seating for 20 for dinner! The perfect kitchen has a Pizza Oven!!! That made cooking for the kids and cooking for the adults so easy! The Craig's home is warm and inviting and perfectly arranged for evening family games of cards, charades, and numerous boardgames that are readily available. The downstairs has a big screen TV with surround sound along with arcade games and a second kitchen and sauna. Oh my, once again.., perfect!
And that lake.., beautiful Bass Lake; perfect for fishing, skiing, swimming from their sandy beach in its crystal clear waters. And sunsets on the Craig's pier are nothing less than breathtaking. The Craig's are very kind, responsive, and keep their word!
This perfect place really and truly has it all. I highly recommend it and truly look forward to being there again.., for three weeks!
High end, well appointed home in one of the most beautiful parts of Wisconsin. Bass Lake, while relatively small, is large enough for water sports, very clean, and has lots of fish. There is lots for the kids to do on those rainy days too. Highly recommend this property as a great family getaway.
This Bass Lake home is just that; it is a little slice of blissful heaven on earth. We were a party of 12. In this spacious and impeccably beautiful lake home (cabin is not a fair word for their pristine retreat), it felt as if there were only a few people present at any one time. Even meal were made easy with a perfectly equiped kitchen and three dining tables. There is ample space and fabulous amenities to tend to everyone's needs rain or shine.
The landlords are warm and caring people to work with. Their pictures simply do not do justice to the reality of their home and its location. It is, simply stated, the perfect place. The home is very clean and obviously well cared for with loads of TLC. We all would highly recommend this property to friends and family. The town of Eagle River is a mere ten minute drive away with all goods and services anyone could possibly require. Yet when you pull up the long wooded driveway to their home it feels private and deep in the north woods.
The vast sandy lake bottom extended from their pier in all directions. It made water play and lake access all the more enjoyable! And for those getting cold from playing hard in the water hours on end, the dry sauna downstairs took away the chill fast. The fishing is unparralleled with ample pan fish readily available for a special fish fry dinner event. We caught a three pound bass just casting off the pier near sunset.
Speaking of sunsets. Don't miss one of them. They are pure magic sitting on the bench at the end of the pier and taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of beautiful Bass Lake. Everyday brought us visions of Bald Eagles fishing. They would expertly dive for their catch and fly to nearby tree tops or an empty pier to feast. Be sure to bring binoculars and/or zoom lenses to capture those special moments.
In the morning we would rise and walk down to the pier with a warming beverage. It is simply the best way to wake up!!! The experience we shared was so enjoyable we have already decided to go again next summer for two weeks, because one week wasn't long enough to enjoy the pure essential magic of this beautiful Bass Lake home. I am already counting the days to our return visit.
As my family arrived they said,"wow how did you find this place?" This spacious house on a beautiful lake was serene and a great place to spend time swimming, fishing, playing games and eating lots of good food. We also enjoyed the sauna since it was cool at times and we could warm up before dipping into the wonderful water of Bass Lake. Some of the futon beds were a bit hard on the older generation but everything else was comfortable and we felt well taken care of. Thanks for providing such a great place for my family reunion.
We had a tremendous vacation with our entire family and found this home to better than advertised. The master bedroom was spacious and well appointed with tremendous views. Everything was clean and in great condition and the layout was fantastic. Best of all there was lots to do or not do. The beach was fantastic for our three young granddaughters (very shallow over an extensive area) and we enjoyed fishing, skiing and tubing. Inside, the entire basement area was perfect for relaxing and playing games. We had a pool tournament, watched movies, sat in the sauna and enjoyed the arcade games. Upstairs, on the main level, we just hung out on the comfortable sofas by the beautiful fireplace. The kitchen was great, the back porch was great, the lake was large enough and yet not too busy and my father-in-law caught some pretty impressive fish. All in all, it was a wonderful experience that we hope to repeat. Chris was easy to work with and we can highly recommend this property.
My kids LOVE this cabin and so do we! Even the views leading into the cabin are breath taking. Once you arrive, it feels like you're reached Heaven! This spectacular 3 story log cabin home has beautiful lake views and many, many windows which allow you to feel like you're connected to nature. There's a wrap around deck that leads one down to all the water fun and to the camp fire for cooking smores and hot dogs.
After a long day of tubing or swimming or fishing, my kids love to play the arcade games or shoot pool in the bar area while we take in the sauna. The pictures shown represent this home well but I'd have to say it's even more gorgeous in person. There are more than enough comfortable and clean beds for all of us to spread out. There are plenty of TV's and books and places to hike at this favorite vacation spot of ours. The home is very well maintained and has never been in disrepair the several times we've stayed here. We love the woodsy decor and coziness that this gigantic yet spectacular home offers.
We love visiting Soda Pops for lunch in downtown while staying in eagle River. We've been to outdoor fun parks nearby too that have proven to be a blast for all! There are grocery stores, cute shops, a movie theater and many restaurants near by as well. Add all of that fun to the peacefulness of the woods and you've found the perfect vacation spot in the North Woods of Wisconsin.
