5000+ SQ FT SECLUDED RIVERFRONT HOME ON 2 ACRES OF WOODLAND

Bruce House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

This luxurious 5000+ square foot river-front southern-style home sits on two acres of beautiful wooded land. We’re situated in the very quiet part of the Flambeau River where the river is shallow and the flow is gentle, making it perfect for canoeing, tubing, and kayaking. It’s secluded and private, and there are 1000 undeveloped acres across the road. This home provides easy access to over 2000 acres of ATV and snowmobile trails and is four short miles away from the Chippewa River and Lake Holcombe landing.

We have 235 feet of river frontage, and from the wrap-around balcony that offers a sweeping view of the river, you can watch bald eagles soar and dive for fish as you sip your morning coffee. Dangle your feet off the new dock and fish for muskie, sturgeon, bass, northern pike, catfish, and yes, the occasional annoying sucker fish, or take the flat-bottomed fishing boat out to explore fishing opportunities further out. Alternatively, you can take the canoe and imagine what it was like to be a Native American canoeing this same river a couple hundred years ago.

In the evening, enjoy a mixed drink made at the festive outdoor tiki bar and watch the beautiful sunsets over the river. Fire up the gas grill and prepare your catch of the day, and after dark, gather around the fire pit on the natural log seating and roast marshmallows around the fire.

Tearing yourself away from the outdoors will be difficult, but when you do, you’ll be greeted by a warm, cheerful home and a 3-foot porcelain pig offering apples on a platter. You’ll find whimsical things like this throughout the home as this is a haven for fun and relaxation. You’ll want for nothing as far as kitchen appliances are concerned. Make use of a coffee pot, microwave, crock pot, 3-pot crock pot buffet server, griddle, waffle iron, pizza oven, deep fryer, blender, mixer, toaster, several sets of dishes, margarita set, bake ware, cookware, wine glasses, and drink glasses. The large pantry has all the basics

– sugar, flour, spices, etc. Just make sure to replace the stuff you finish so that the next person can enjoy the conveniences of home, too!

There is a large master bedroom with a luxurious queen bed and attached master bath (with hot tub!) on the main floor, two comfortable bedrooms (one with a full bed and the other with two twin beds) and a full bath on the lower level. Also on the lower level is an office/bedroom and a large laundry room for all of your laundry needs. The 400 square foot loft up above the main floor can accommodate several queen air beds (there are three for your use). My grandchildren love to have slumber parties in the loft, and all ten of them can easily fit with room to spare!

The home has beautiful hand-stained cherry wood cathedral ceilings, a cozy gas fireplace, central air, geothermal heating, Wi-Fi, and DirectTV for your convenience. Bed linens and towels are provided, and there are a few beach towels, too.

And last, but certainly not least, there’s a HUGE 3+ car finished, heated garage with a marble-topped wine bar. We often use this garage as a gathering place for our extended family on holidays. Complete with a fun palm tree adorned with lights, we love to have holiday meals in there and can easily fit a dozen people. There are also tables that can be used for scrapbooking, quilting, jewelry-making, and other crafting get-togethers.

If you feel the need to leave this amazing property, there are two golf courses nearby, or you can drive to the nearby town of Ladysmith for all of your shopping and antiquing desires. Ski slopes are about an hour away, and so is my mother if you’d like to stop in and say hello (just kidding, although she would likely dish you up a nice warm bowl of homemade soup!)

Seriously, though, I love this property, and I’m sure you will, too. I’m excited to share it with you!

About Ann Nelsen

I fell in love with this house the first time that I saw it. Unfortunately, I'm not able to be here full time so I decided to share it with others that enjoy beauty and the outdoors. I have three children, nine grandchildren and one little great granddaughter and they all love it here. I enjoy sharing this unique and peaceful home and have had wonderful guests.

Ann Nelsen purchased this house in 2006

Why Ann Nelsen chose Bruce

I decided to purchase this property before I ever walked into it - a case of love at first sight. It has a plantation type feeling, two acres of land, a balcony overlooking the river and a great eco system. This home is secluded, the river is quiet, and it's a wonderful place to renew your spirit before you return to the 'real' world.

What makes this house unique

I love sitting on my balcony with a warm cup of coffee in the mornings while I watch the eagles swoop and dive for fish. I also love sitting around the fire pit with my grand kids while we sing silly songs, tell tall tales, and make smores. The river's shallow enough on the near side that the kids can wade into it right off the shore, and it's deep enough on the far side that they can take the canoe or the fishing boat out and fish the deeper waters. My grandson's largest Sturgeon so far is over 50 inches meanwhile my great granddaughter loves picking the blackberries - and my flowers but what can you say to a cute three year old that brings you a bouquet of petunia's and weeds? You put them in a vase and love them!

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a rental in which to hold a celebration for my husband's 60th birthday. All 3 of our adult children, with their families, traveled to WI for this gathering - so we needed a space that would allow a family of 14 to be together.

Ann's gracious home fit the bill perfectly. There are plenty of bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. Additionally, there is a full kitchen, a laundry room (life saver with little kids), and multiple living/family room spaces for people to be together - or to have a little personal space. My favorite part of the house is actually attached to the house - the garage. Ann has two cafeteria tables in there - so we could have all 14 of us sit down to eat at once - with no worries about little hands spilling milk, because it is a garage. Excellent.

For the river - it is beautiful. I've always been a lake girl, so was a little nervous about the river - no need, it was great. The water is very clean, shallow enough for little ones, deep enough to fish for walleye and small mouth bass (which were delicious btw). Ann has life jackets, inflatables - really everything you'd ever need.

We are very grateful to have found Ann and this property. I highly suggest it.

Sincerely, Raechel Schowalter

Perfect Perfect Perfect...

I just retutned home from an amazing weekend getaway with my girlfriends from Ann's River Home! The house was perfect in every way, not only was is large enough to fit us all, but it had every amenity available for our use. Although we forgot ours at home...the yard would be perfect for a bean bag tourney! The log benches surrounding the campfire provide a perfect cozy feeling and the river a great spot to relax in during the day. We will be back!

Memories and more.

  • 5 of 5
Our family and friends embarked on a journey to find the best location to spend quality time together. We were looking for solitude, something safe, eye appealing, near the water, and something that would be enjoyable for all our friends and family. Undoubtedly this house provided everything we were looking for and couldn't have asked for a better venue to spend quality time with friends and family.

Everything described by the owner about the house is spot on and no embellishment. There is a large backyard situated on the bank of a the Flambeau Chanel. The house is so comfortable with a great view of the river. There are hummingbirds every where you look! The overall feel of the house is breathtaking. Hardwood ceiling, soft carpet, large kitchen, great living room and the bedroom sizes are great! If this isn't enough, there is a hot tub in the upstairs bathroom!! In the bathroom!

Apart from the aesthetic pleasantries of the house, the owner is beyond kind in her approach. She's orderly, polite, and timely. She met us at the house at a designated time and had the entire house cleaned and prepared for us. We could not have asked for a better venue to spend our vacation. If you choose to book something else you're making a huge mistake!

A Perfect Weekend For Our Family To Gather And Reconnect

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a fabulous weekend at this lovely home. We had family members from Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan meet up to celebrate Father's Day weekend. We could not have chosen a better place! The house is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. Our group ranged from 14 to 75 years old and there was something for everyone. We had a large group but there was ample room for comfortable sleeping, cooking, eating and playing games.

We took Ann's advice and did our grocery shopping on our way there so that we didn't have to spend our "together time" running to the store. Ann keeps the pantry stocked with "just in case items" so if you do forget something, you are bound to find it in the kitchen. Every kitchen appliance, serving piece and utensil you could possibly need are there.

We took advantage of everything the place had to offer: the canoe, the fishing boat, the inflatable tubes, the fire pit, and the hot tub (which is a full size hot tub and not just an oversize bathtub). There was more than enough firewood for large fires every night.

We particularly enjoyed floating downstream to Flader's Resort. On our way, a bald eagle flew overhead with a fish in his claws. It was an amazing sight and one of the highlights for our kids. The wildlife was abundant and during our stay we saw wild turkey, turtles, bald eagles, hummingbirds and lots of deer.

If it sounds like I'm gushing, it's true. But our family had a thoroughly enjoyable time and I can't think of a think that was missing.

Thank you, Ann, for a wonderful experience!

A Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of friends sought solitude, nature and great fishing, all of which we found at this expansive home on the banks of the wild and scenic Flambeau River. The home itself was clean and comfortable. The garage provided space to fiddle with tackle and play cards and board games. The canoe and jon boat provided allow travel up and down the river where we were able to catch smallmouth bass, muskie (not an easy feat), and walleye. The fire pit and ample amount of firewood make for restful and reflective evenings. Everything we'd forgot to bring along (bath towels and paper towels, extra pillows, kitchen spices and condiments, etc.) was somewhere to be found in the house, saving us trips into town and giving us more quality time together. Our trip to Holcombe was unforgettable and we hope to do it again next year.

We had a wonderful stay in Ann’s spacious home on the Flambeau River. Gentle currents carried us down and upstream in the included canoe and flat boat to the islands where we caught bass for fish tacos. A multitude of hummingbirds greeted us in the morning while we sipped coffee on the deck. In the evening great sunsets and evening stars framed the fire pit for a splendid end of day experience. Quiet, restful, spacious home with a fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplace, WI-Fi, cable TV and
a beautiful backdrop, we’d love to return.

My house is located on the peaceful area of the Flambeau River. My guests enjoy the quiet setting, the balcony overlooking the river where they can watch the eagles fish, the many different colored hummingbirds, and the indescribable sunsets. The river is shallow enough for kids to wander and play but still deep enough to take the canoe or tubes out. The fishing is great also or if you'd rather, the area has gift shops, art galleries, many restaurants and alot of music in the summer. It's a great place to find peace and/or entertainment ...I personally love the quiet mornings outside,local music on Sunday afternoons and a bonfire by the river at night.
