About Tim Wightman

We are a family of 8 who love everything about the outdoors. There is no better place to enjoy summer and winter activities than the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Tim Wightman purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim Wightman chose Manitowish Waters

We have been enjoying summer and winter vacations in the Manitowish Waters/Mercer area for over 20 years. We have been looking for the perfect home for our family of 8 to enjoy. When we found Tall Pines, we knew it would be the perfect vacation retreat for our family, friends and future renters.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the 657 feet of beautiful lake frontage on secluded 2 acres surrounded by tall pine trees. Being at the top of the hill looking down on the lake provides fantastic views.

The house is very comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for a large family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We made some wonderful memories at your beautiful property: sunset canoe paddles, watching and listening to the loons, lots of fishing off the dock, and swimming in that super clean water!

Winter paradise

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous property. Squeaky clean and well-maintained. We were in contact with both the manager and owner, and both were eager to make our stay outstanding. Enjoyed a week of cross-country skiing at the numerous trails in the area. Plenty of up-north flavor in the many local taverns around Mercer. ("Heart of the North" bar has an amazing variety of draft craft beers...)

Fall Color - Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife, brother, and sister-in-law enjoyed a wonderful weekend in the Northwoods of Wisconsin (first weekend of October). The home was perfect, and couldn't say enough about how Tim and the property manager had all the t's crossed and i's dotted - very organized (Directions, Expectations, Rental Contract, Overall Communication)!! Nothing left to question...we simply enjoyed their beautiful home.

My brother and I grew up in Manitowish Waters, and know the area well. With many friends and connections in the Northwoods, we had a number of choices to make when looking for a base camp - for our long weekend. We chose right.

We'll be back!

Breathtaking location

The place delivered everything promised. The house is huge and luxurious. We had a great time at the shuffleboard. The Lake is right in front of the house. Awesome experience.

Everything we could ask for and more!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beyond our expectations and worked out perfectly!

It is very spacious, beautiful, has a great view of the lake and we wish had booked a longer stay. Everything in the house was perfectly placed and we never called the owner for anything.

We have been to quite a few cabin trips in this year and i would say this is the best of all. It was much better than what it looks in the pics in their website :)
