About The Owner

We are a family that has enjoyed entertaining in our home with family and friends. We hope to share that with you and make many more friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

Why The Owner chose Manitowish Waters

As a child my husband grew up visiting friends in the 'Northwoods' with his family. We soon started coming up together and looking for a second home to vacation in. We have started a family and raised them in the same tradition of vacationing in the 'Northwoods'

What makes this house unique

We treat you more like a guest in our home than a renter. We have entertained a lot so we know what it takes to stock a house for fun. We try not to overlook anything and will make your stay enjoyable

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My newly husband and I stayed at the Bruin's Retreat for 3 nights and 4 days. It was really easy to get to (we traveled from La Crosse, WI). Upon arrival, we were in awe of the beauty that surrounded this property. It was perfectly secluded and felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves (as many were traveling home from the holiday weekened while we were traveling there). The house mirrored exactly to the pictures on this listing. The property owner even left us a congratulatory bottle of champagne for us in the fridge. We spent a lot of time fishing, relaxing in the hot tub, and had a small camp fire. We didn't want to leave. We had a wonderful experience and would love to visit again in the future!

Our family get away

  • 5 of 5
We were excited as soon as we walked into this home. It's exactly what we hoped for. We have a large family, Diana's home was a perfect for us. We spent a lot of time on the spacious deck and around the huge fire pit. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

A beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a nice, clean property. Everything is as advertised. The Hot Tub was a hit with the family. Beautiful fire pit. However, bad mosquito year so could not use it. Home was very well furnished.

Great place to relax, beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to get our whole family together. We sat around the fire pit, gazed at the stars from the hot tub, went paddling in canoes over to Little Bohemia, and watched old home movies with plenty of couches and seating for us all to gather round. The view of sunsets were amazing!

Another great trip

  • 5 of 5
Diana and Tim, Our group of seven snowmobile-ers just finished our second trip at the "Retreat". Perfect again, we have already re-booked for 2015. I really can't think of any way to improve our stay. Three refrigerators, three HD tv's, hot tub, giant washer and dryer, etc. We are already looking forward to 2015. Not to mention, down the hill and over the lake to Little Bohemia. Wow!!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5
This home is truly more than advertised! It was HUGE! Very well laid out. The bedrooms are all large and the kitchen was truly fully stocked. The TVs were marvelous. The hot tub fun. The fire pit tremendous. We got to watch the deer come to nibble away. The lake was beautiful. We were four older couples and we found the house to be exactly what we needed but knew that if we had chosen to bring our families, every age would have been happy there. With all the food we brought, there were enough refrigerators (3) to handle it all. Over all, well worth the price. We will definitely try to come back again! Thank you Diana for letting us stay in your home!
