What an absolutley fantastic home!! The house was extremely clean, and the fireplace was wonderful. The views are great, especially looking up at the stars - truly amazing. We can't wait to get back to the northwoods and enjoy the summer months - fishing, rafting and tubing.

We had a great stay at this cabin. It is a peaceful, quiet location that really couldn't be more perfect for relaxing. The house is well stocked and we didn't lack for anything. The owners and caretakers are both extremely helpful. We will be staying again in the future!

Lovely house, beautiful location

A really charming, nicely equipped vacation rental--the cabin is pretty newly built, and really nicely done. And it had one of the absolutely best-stocked kitchens I've encountered in years of renting thru VRBO! The location is really beautiful too--right on the Peshtigo, and we enjoyed the kayaks very much (the path down to the dock for put-in on the property is pretty steep and a bit tricky while carrying heavy kayaks, so be prepared with good water shoes, no flip flops). The only 2 minor issues I'd note for potential renters is that the shared space would be really tight for more than 4 adults; the only real dining table is a picnic table on the screened-in porch which can be tricky if you get bad weather (which can easily happen in Wisconsin: even in late July, we had 2 nights where it was impossible to be outside in the evening due to pounding rain and cold, and finding a way to eat indoors was not easy); the living room and kitchen are very nice but also very small. The other thing to mention is that even with 3 different cell phone service carriers between us, we couldn't get phone service without driving 35 minutes or so to the nearest town--that's not a big deal (it's actually kind of nice to be disconnected!) but given this, the house should definitely have a landline--if there was an emergency this could be a real issue since there'd be no way to call an ambulance/fire department/police. And even if you have a minor issue such as a septic tank in need of pumping, as we did, it's a major hassle to have to drive an hour just to phone the owners. Otherwise, cute place and responsive owners.

Owner's Response: Anniem,
I'm glad you enjoyed our cottage and you can see how much work and love went into the construction and up keep of our place.

I'm sorry your cell service didn't work so well up here. Most of the major networks work pretty good though. (ATT, Verizon, US Cellular, Cell com) In the Info sheet I sent to you and the binder on the table are emergency contact lists. One of those is our property management people who live directly across the street. They are always willing to help out. In-fact a while back a renter had a problem with their car. Our managers loaned their car so they could get some parts to fix their's. This is the North woods not the city every one is willing to give a hand with plenty of full time residents close by.

The table in the Kitchen is a drop leaf on both sides and with a little shifting of chairs, we've gotten six around without a problem, also we have some TV tables you must not have seen in the mud room.

Thank you for informing us about the trickiness of hauling the Kayaks and the potential liability, we wont be supplying kayaks in the future.

Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.

By the way, it is a great Kitchen and by the looks of it you enjoyed it to the fullest.

Brett

Stayed 3 nights at this clean, comfortable cottage. There were 5 couples in our group. We had plenty of sleeping room with the addition of the bunk house located above the garage. We enjoyed relaxing and having meals on the screened-in porch. Decor was really nice with some unique touches. The outdoor shower with hot water was fun to use. All in all, a relaxing place to stay!

Wonderful stay, great natural surroundings. We went with 4 other couples and had a really fun time.
Well appointed accommodation,nothing lacking.

White water rafting was a blast and well worth the drive over there.
