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!

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 :)

Amazing Lake Home !!

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends rented this wonderful home last week. The place is neat, spacious, well maintained and surrounded by serene beauty. The home is located on the edge of a peninsula covered three sides by water. The Lake is less crowded and crystal clear, making it a good spot for fishing or even deep dive. We really enjoyed spending time around the fire pit, we were often visited by a friendly "Flying Squirrel". Sitting near the lake in the cloudy dark night with the bustling sound of tall pine trees was breathtaking and mesmeric. I'd definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to to rejuvenate oneself from the chaos of everyday life. Thanks Tim for renting us this wonderful place.

Fantastic Labor Day Get-A-Way and More

  • 5 of 5
My family was able to rent Tim's home just last week during my daughters wedding week at the Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters. All of my friends were so pleased and so excited when they arrived. The home is so nicely equipped I didn't need ANYTHING!
most importantly the home was very clean, neat, and the furnishings were upscale. (the leather couches you melt in)
Since the owner, Tim, was located near my home the rental contract went very smooth and Diana, the property manager, was able to greet us upon our arrival. She was very nice in taking the time so see that we were comfortable with any concerns we may have (we had no concerns at all).
We rented a small out board motor for the boat and managed to catch a few fish though the weather was now the best.
If I had one thing to say I only wish the fire pit was closer to the home for all to enjoy instead of down the stairs at the bottom of the hill.
This is a wonderful property and I would highly recommend it, and I hope to return some day. Thanks again Tim!

Northwoods at its finest

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and our 4 kids (ages 7-19) had a wonderful and relaxing time staying at this property. Everything about the home and the location met or exceeded our expectations. We were amazed at how beautiful the property is, and also how quiet and secluded. The home was clean, spacious, comfortable, and modern. The owner and property manager were available and very helpful. We spent a lot of time on the water (skiing, tubing, swimming, canoeing, fishing) and at times felt like we had the whole lake to ourselves.

Clean, neat, well equipped

  • 5 of 5
This house is clean, neat, and well equipped. Very tasteful decor. Open floorplan and bright. The house is located at a great location on the lake. The home comes with a row boat and canoe you can use. This house is not lacking anything. Our stay at this home was very pleasant. You are fairly close to town if you need to run in for groceries or bait. We would gladly recommend this home.
