Tomahawk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Unbeatable view from picnic deck with outdoor stone fireplace right over the water! Clean and cozy 1940’s cabin with 100 ft of frontage on 14 acre Quiet, no-wake Knight Lake, only 20 miles to Tomahawk or Wausau.

Remodeled to preserve old Northwoods experience, our Lakeside Sanctuary cabin features screen porch overlooking undeveloped shoreline and western sunsets, vaulted knotty pine ceiling, skylights and ceiling fan. Front porch converted to bedroom sleeps up to 4, with full bed and twin bunks. Additional comfortable sleeping for 1 or 2 on 10” thick futon in main room. Fully equipped kitchen and inside plumbing; full bath with roomy walk-in shower. Electric heat. There's even an outhouse for anyone who wants to bring back the good ol' days!

For grandparents, here's the perfect chance to recapture the memories of summer vacation in the northwoods in an 'On Golden Pond' like setting. Couples, friends and families can break away from the distractions of work and high technology and soak in a summer week, month or season finding restoration in the beauty in nature and relationships.

About Mark & Irene Mehlos

Mark and I are retired health care professionals living in nearby Merrill, 15 minutes south of the cabin. We spend much of our summer at the lake with our golden retriever, Sadie. Mark was an avid mountain biker and cross country skier judging the local terrain to be some of the best in the midwest. Although a disability has modified activities and brought early retirement, we still enjoy the lake surroundings for biking, hiking and swimming. Participating in a shoreline restoration project on our lakefront property which is the first of its’ kind in Lincoln County has been an exciting experience dovetailing with our philosophy of environmental sustainability and protection.

Mark & Irene Mehlos purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Mark & Irene Mehlos chose Tomahawk

While still in the workforce back in 1994, we jumped at the chance to purchase a cabin in this beautiful spot so close to home. Many evenings during the workweek, we enjoyed supper on the grill, enveloped by the evening breeze across the lake and watching the sun set.

There are a total of 2 year round homes and a few sparcely used summer cabins on our dead end road that enters along the east side of the lake, which makes for little traffic passing through.

When this cabin with ideal views of the lake came up for sale, it sparked the dream of a rental business in retirement and the goal to promote the quality of the peaceful environment of this precious and dwindling resource. The friendly spirit and support of the neighbors and has made this dream possible.

What makes this cabin unique

Some of our favorite things to do at the lake:

•Dinner on the deck--Watching the fish surface to feed in the evenings and listening to the breeze through the pines or a chorus of frogs as an early summer evening approaches.

•Fishing from the dock or trolling the shoreline for bass, crappie or bluegills

•Lounging in the water, floating on rafts

•Relaxing in the love seat swing watching for eagles, heron or deer feeding on the shoreline

•Family bike rides through back roads to the Mennonite store in Gleason for an ice cream cone or old fashioned bulk candies

•Sipping Coffee or iced tea and playing cards on the screen porch cooled by the lake breeze

•Looking up at night to spot a barred owl peering down at us from the pine branches right just above our heads

•Gazing at the night sky illuminated with a harvest moon or stars undimmed by city lights.

The cabin has been a wonderful guesthouse for visiting friends and family.

Some of our most precious memories of time with our kids are centered here, including story telling around the campfire, graduations and 4th of July celebrations

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We came for our honeymoon the day after our wedding. It was great to get away and relax, especially from all the wedding stuff. Loved the hummingbirds that greeted us the night we got here! Spent some time in town looking around at the shops too. So nice just to sit around and enjoy the surroundings and quiet. Thank you Irene and Mark!" ~Jon & Heidi, Elgin, IL

My wife and I stayed at the lakeside cabin for almost a week in Mid August. It is exactly as described. Irene was a very gracious and helpful host and gave us all the info we needed to have an enjoyable week. The cozy little cottage was a great place to spend some time just relaxing and taking in the gorgeous view. There was a humming bird feeder right outside the porch window which was humming with birds and a treat to watch. The outside deck was a great spot to read and/or just soak it all in. There is hiking and biking trails nearby which we took advantage of.The fishing was a bit slow but one day after some rain that certainly changed. The bass were biting and a nice sized large mouth was the highlight. Nearby Merril and Tomahawk have a variety of things to offer.
If you are looking for a quiet,quaint well taken care of cottage to relax,disconnect and soak in all that Knight lake has to offer I say check it out. If you need lots of action and reading a good book in a quiet and gorgeous spot is not your thing, I say find someplace else.

Quiet and peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Lakeside Cabin was just what we hoped for. It was quiet, peaceful and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our week off. The kids loved catching bluegills and crappies. We went swimming, boating and sight seeing. We enjoyed eating out on the table that overlooks the lake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fires were nice in the fire pit. Many smores were consumed over the course of the week. Everyone likes relaxing in the hammock. Irene the owner was so nice. My daughter said, " I hope she comes to visit us because I love her." It was such a nice vacation and we hope to return soon for another vacation.

Owner's Response: Wow, That makes our day! Hug those sweet girls! It was great seeing the whole family out having fun on the swimming raft. There's a new sturdy ladder so it will be easier for everyone to get up on it next time you visit! If you can find a few days for just the two of you, Fall is a great time for a romantic get-away. If the Lakeside Sanctuary is taken, our Hemlock Hide-Away (VRBO 404297) just a little ways down the lake, has a big stone fire place inside to relax by on cool nights. We'll leave the Lighthouse lit for you!

True Serenity

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I, our two daughters, and my parents GREATLY enjoyed our stay at the Lakeside Sanctuary. The listing description and photos are just as it is. Irene & Mark were very welcoming and helpful. They include a wonderful cabin guide that has an array of information about the area for anything you may want to do. This property was so peaceful and relaxing we only left once to enjoy one of the local restaurants.

We loved spending our days fishing, swimming, and all hanging out to soak up the sun on the lake in the row boat and paddle boat. Although there is a TV in the cabin, I was happy that it never got turned on by my daughters and I never once heard them say, 'Mom, I'm bored!' They enjoyed it as much as we did. The week went by way too quickly. We will cherish the time we spent there and the memories that we made. We look forward to our next stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! It really is great to know our guests are finding quality time in this special place to connect with each other and nature and go home refreshed and renewed. That was our hope in sharing this property. You were A+ renters too! We'd love to see you again!

Vacation getaway

The description was accurate on the location, and the photos were exactly as shown. The owners are excellent on maintaining the appearance and amenities for the cabin. We were left with a binder of very informative places to visit and dine, with their personal comments on the eateries near by. I have recommended the property to friends and my family want to rent both cabins for a family vacation. I'd recommend the Friendship House in Rhinelander and Chips Hamburger's in Merrill WI. The road leading up to the cabin is great for a walk or bike riding, the Indian Village in Fond Du Lac is a must see, especially if there are school age children.

Ahhhh...

If you are looking for a truly peaceful and secluded stay in a northwoods cabin, this is it! A small lake with non motorized boats only which come with the cabin. I easily canoed the lake a single evening and returned only because my hands had become stiff from the fridgid but refreshing air. The echo of a raven and the continous single "bloops" of fish having an evening meal of mosquitos on the surface of the water was the prelude to a night sky so brilliantly lit that it revealed itself in a perfect mirror image on top the still water. I will return.

Owner's Response: One of the old timers on the lake has said it should be named "Mirror Lake" because of the way it reflects the trees and sky. (Instead it was named "Knight Lake" after the family who originally owned most of the property on it. The reflection is an amazing site during a full moon, or when the leaves are peaking, like now! It makes for some wonderful pictures. Thanks for your feedback. We will look forward to seeing you again!

Peaceful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5
This is the most quiet and serene location we have ever visited. It was the perfect location for my husband and I to spend a week and do nothing but relax.We only left one time to go to the casino which was about an hour north. The lake is so quiet and peaceful. We did a lot of fishing, went out in the row boat and paddle boat. We enjoyed not having motor boats and skiers on this little lake. The cabin is small and "quaint". The outside areas make up for anything that the inside lacks. We loved our time there and Irene (the owner) was very helpful to us. We would love to go back!
