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!

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.

Lisa Wightman purchased this house in 2013

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5
Great house and accommodations A+ all the way. Will defiantly be back for more snowmobiling. We were hit with over a foot of snow our first night glad we had four wheel
drive. Will definitely come back for a summer trip to enjoy the lake and some fishing with the family.

SNOWMOBILE TRIP

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in early February for a snowmobile trip. The trail is very close to the house. Restaurants and gas are very close in downtown mercer. The trail conditions were absolutely the best I've ever experienced in northern Wisconsin. The house is equipped with absolutely anything you could possibly need. The house arrangement is very comfortable. Tim did a fantastic job keeping me informed of all the details needed for a great vacation.

INCREDIBLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home was beautiful beyond words. The view was breath taking. I could have sat on that lovely deck just listening to the loons (which there were lots of) all day long. The house was immaculate - very clean and currently furnished. The owner's manager was so helpful and made it be known that she wasn't far away if we needed anything. Our kids found things to do - we rented a pontoon boat for fishing. My grandson enjoyed swimming in the lake. There were plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby as well. I would highly recommend this home as a great getaway for anyone looking for a little R&R.

AWESOME VACATION- GREAT FISHING, PEACEFUL SETTING, PRIVACY,UNBELIEVABLE VIEWS AND INCREDIBLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Just spent wonderful and relaxing 8 days at Tall Pines. What a beautiful home with all the amenities you need. Spacious, beautifully decorated, and great open layout. Most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Awe inspiring view the moment we stepped out of the car! Made a campfire at firepit down by the lake, listened to the loons at night, and relaxed on the beautiful deck during the day. Boatlift was so convenient for our boat, and used the aluminum boat as well which was great. The first day I walked down to the dock, dropped my line in the water and caught a walleye! My son did the same within 2 minutes. Caught northern, smallmouth bass, walleye, and some panfish. Our oldest son had a muskie up to the boat-what a thrill! Thanks to Tim for all his suggestions and help leading up to and during the trip. Cranberry Inn was awesome, and Scott at Turtle River Trading Bait Shop was so helpful and friendly. We hope to return in the future, and if you are looking to relax and enjoy a great vacation, this is the place for you.

WONDERFUL RELAXING WEEK AT TALL PINES

  • 4 of 5
Overall our stay was wonderful, and the complaints are mine and minimal compared to the vacation home and the time we enjoyed. They may not apply for you. I would most definitely recommend this home for others. There are so many positives to this home such as location, the home itself, decoration, privacy, etc. I cant say enough. Because of limited review words, I will focus on items to be improved upon to help the discriminating customer and the owners to provide a great vacation home.
1. The first item which needs to be clarified or changed to better represent the advertisement of the home is that access is denied to the garage. When we checked in we were told that only wintertime guests were allowed to use the garage. I reviewed the rental house ad online for the home, and the short term lease agreement, and at this time it doesn't say use will be unavailable. It just refers to locked storage areas such as closets. It shows a picture of the garage end of the home. Since nothing is said otherwise, I assumed there would be use. The reason this was a concern for us was the plentiful amount of mosquitos and weather. There are also many tall trees near the home. It would have been a giant plus to have been able to load and unload cars directly into the home.
2. Another complaint is the internet. It is written in the short term lease not being a guarantee. The day you show up, the final informative list asks you not to stream any video which was a definite disappointment. During our stay the connection was horrible! I reset the internet a minimum of 30 times. Tim was very generous with his time while continually helping me resolve the internet issue. As a renter/consumer, I would have gladly paid extra to have reliable unlimited internet, especially for work. I was offended when the property manager asked me via text "Is there anything really important that someone needs to do today", referring to internet usage. She later advised that if we really had to use the internet we could go to the local library.
3. My last concern is for fishermen. Bring your own boat, or rent. The rowboat is nice for a slow trip in the bay, but would not trust it with a motor. Also, the oars are cracked. I say this with the background of being a licensed coast guard captain, part time charter captain, owner of a 34 foot Sea Ray, and a fisherman of 30 years. Also, I did not find the lake to be a very productive fishing lake. We did end up going to other lakes for fishing.

Owner's Response: First we are so glad your stay was "wonderful" and that you would definitely recommend our home to others. As you said, “There are so many positives to this home such as location, the home itself, decoration, privacy, etc. I cant say enough.”

We did think it is important to briefly respond to each of your ideas to make our home even better.

1) Access to the garage is specifically not mentioned as an option in the short term contract or on our VRBO listing. We keep our personal items stored in the garage for our own use during the summer. This area is treated exactly the same as other locked storage areas that are mention in our contract.
2) Though we understand the internet is important to our renters we certainly hope that they are coming on vacation to enjoy the privacy and relaxation of our beautiful home. The only option currently available for internet is a Verizon hot spot. The hot spot is efficient for internet browsing, email and other services. We mention in the VRBO listing and on the information sheet at the house that video streaming is not allowed. DSL will be available in 2014 and we will be switching services which will allow for unlimited internet access along with video streaming. One more point, there should never be a need to reset the internet. This was required only because a setting on the hot spot was inadvertently changed. Once we identified the problem and corrected it the service has been working properly since.
3) We provide a canoe and 14' aluminum boat free to our renters. The 14' boat will easily support a 10 - 15 hp motor. We personally use a 10 hp motor which works nicely. Rental options for outboard motors are provided to all owners prior to check-in. We provide a boat lift for those renters that want to bring their own boat. There are local businesses that will deliver boats directly to Spider Lake.
