OAK RIDGE COTTAGE ON THE BEST FISHING LAKE IN THE NORTHWOODS

Phelps Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

The cottage is located on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert lake in the heart of Wisconsin's northwoods lake country and the Nicolet National Forest. We are just a few miles north of Eagle River, WI. We are open all year round and offer you a knotty-pine interior cottage that will suit all your lodging and accommodation needs, all surrounded by beautiful and fragrant old pine trees and majestic oaks. There is an abundance of wildlife here, on the lake and in the area. Make sure you bring a pair of binoculars with you - there are a lot of eagle nests all around the lake and you can see and hear eagles and loons every day. You will also see ducks, swans, and otters here. Deer very often visit the area.

We are located on the south shore of Lac Vieux Desert, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River.

Our beautiful lake is famous of its record musky (a World Record Musky was caught here), walleye, northern pike, perch, small mouth and large mouth bass and panfish fishing, and is one of the largest in the state with 4300 acres and 19 miles of fantastic shoreline and 4 islands. The cottage (located 70 yards from the lake's shore) has 250' lake frontage and you can use a pier.

You will be very happy with our spacious, modern, super clean, housekeeping 2 bedroom cottage which can accommodate up to 6 guests on 1 double bed, 2 twin beds and a pull-out sofa. It is completely furnished including bed linens and kitchen towels. A big kitchen has a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all necessary pots, pans, plates and utensils. There is also a DVD player and a TV set in the cottage (there is no TV reception at our location). You can bring your pet (nominal fee) for a vacation here.

For your enjoyment, outside the cottage you will find charcoal grill, fire pit (for weekly rentals we provide a couple of armfuls of firewood for free), and picnic table. A 14 foot boat is also included to fish the lake or just to relax on the water. After a successful fishing day you can use our fish-cleaning house to clean your fish and then freeze them (if you want) in a freezer there.

Come stay with us any time of the year and enjoy many wonderful vacation activities in spring and summer such as swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, berry picking, scenic driving and wildlife watching. There is plenty to do in fall and winter, too. You can enjoy watching the northern forests burst into brilliant fall colors as well as hunting, ice fishing, snowmobiling or cross country skiing. The cottage is located on the snowmobile trail and you have access to 600 miles of Vilas County snowmobiling trails in the Nicolet National Forest.

We bought the property in 2007 because we were coming for vacation to Lac Vieux Desert lake for the last 20 years and we're in love with the Northwoods. We appreciate the beauty of this area and we want our guests to enjoy themselves so we do our best to make their stay comfortable and memorable.

Lac Vieux Desert lake (4300 acres) is the best all year round fishing lake in Northern Wisconsin. It is located in the heart of 650,000 acres of Nicolet National Forest and very close (the north shore of the lake) to 2.2 million acres of Ottawa National Forest. This lake offers a lot of fishing excitement (musky, walleye, northern, crappie, bluegill, perch, bass) as well as wonderful relaxation like no other place in the Northwoods.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!

My family and I had one of the best vacations in a long time. The cottage was very clean, well stocked with all the basics and very spacious. The lake is large and great for fishing and boating. The area of the north woods is breathtaking. My family and I cant wait to go back. The property is maintained very well. The best part of the trip was on our way home, a black bear ran across the street in front of our car. The kids and my husband thought it was so cool. Thank you Katherine and Marion for a great experience!

Super experience... From clean cabins that are well furnished and comfortable whether it's hot or cold outside, I've never found a north woods resort as friendly as Oak Ridge. The setting is beautiful and fishing hot-spots can be found in many locations around the lake. Sunsets are wonderfully romantic with friendly hummingbirds buzzing throughout the day. The owners go out of their way to be accomodating and are always improving the property. My family highly recommends Oak Ridge Resort!

The owners are extremely good about ensuring the guests are well informed and happy. Cottages are clean and well stocked with kitchen utentials and cookware. Views across the lake fantastic. Some of the best sunsets we have ever seen. This would be the perfect place if you intend to fish (think big fish) all day or read and campfire by night. Cottages are very homey, perfect place to bring the dog as well.

The accomdoations at Oak Ridge are excellent for a peaceful retreat to the North Woods. Our cabin was tidy, well maintained, and offered the peace and tranquility needed for a relaxing get-away. The view and access to the lake is great (for fishing or to watch the scenery and the wildlife). Marion and Katherine are excellents hosts and are very accomodating. We are repeat visitors, and will be back next year!

My entire extended family stayed at the resort for a week. The cabin was extremely clean, well stocked and the owners, Katherine and Marion, were very helpful and kind! I would highly recommend staying here. The lake is huge, and there is hardly any traffic on it. It's quiet and peaceful, with numerous eagles flying overhead at all times. The kids went swimming every day, as well as fishing every day. A lot of fish were caught! We brought our dog along, not many resorts will allow that, and she loved it too. A wonderful, relaxing, and peaceful time was had by all!
