BEAUTIFUL LAKEFRONT COTTAGE PERFECT FOR LARGE/MULTIPLE FAMILIES

Minocqua Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 kitchen lakefront cottage complete with boats

This two-level lakefront gem is complete with 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8-12), master bed & bath with deck, 3 baths, 2 fully furnished kitchens (one on each level), washer & dryer, large screen TV's w/DVD's, lakeside decks with outdoor furniture, screen porches on each level, brick patio, outdoor grills, waterfront fire pit, grassy sideyards and dock. Authentic Northwoods interior finishes throughout complete with cleaning service. You can close off one level from the other if you so choose! Includes large pontoon, motorized fishing boat, paddle boat, kayak, canoe, water toys and large dock. Lake Arrowhead has great fishing and is perfect for water skiing and boarding without all the traffic. You can even boat across the lake to one of the area's premier pizza parlors! Property faces west for picturesque sunsets, and lakefront is all sand bottom, tapering off gently for great water fun. We bought and completely remodeled and refurbished after combing the Northwoods for the perfect spot. While tucked away and quiet, the property is also very close to area grocery stores, restaurants, golf courses, casino and downtown Minocqua. We're proud of our many repeat guests who have made many family memories here and keep coming back! This is our family's vacation destination too!!

The Callin Family stems from the Greater Madison, WI area and consider the WI Northwoods our second home. We've rented to great guests & friends since we bought it and renovated it in 1998. This is our only rental property so we love it and care for it as our family treasure. This property is also our vacation home, so we furnish it and care for it as such and expect our guests to as well. Over the years we've come to trust some locals who help us with cleaning, maintenance, repairs and quick response guest calls and we consider these trusted friends an extension of our family. We welcome your family to our family destination-Cal's Cottage.

Greg & Cheryl Callin purchased this cabin in 1998

My parents started vacationing in the WI Northwoods decades ago and decided to buy a rental/vacation property in the area. After searching for years, we vacationed on Lake Arrowhead and happened to see a property for sale. This 1950's vintage ranch home was plain and neglected, but had great 'bones', a great waterfront, and tremendous upside. Lake Arrowhead is a great lake-wonderful fishing and big enough for boating and skiing yet secluded enough that its primarily used only by our lakefront property owners. My architect brother designed the renovations and my retired father worked side by side with a talented carpenter and other tradesman and completely refurbished and remodeled it-inside and out. My mother furnished the kitchens, bedrooms, baths and living spaces with her touch on the interior decor and we've been constantly upgrading and tweaking ever since. Cal's is truly what a lakefront cottage/cabin should be, and we and our repeat guests love it.

From the moment you first drive down the windy, wooded drive to when you first see the cottage and its wood exterior to when you first look out across the lake, you'll know why we consider this place Cal's 'heaven on earth'. With great windows on both levels facing the lakefront and all the unique 'perch' positions on the wood decks, screened porches, brick patio, grassy sideyards and dock, you'll enjoy great days and picturesque sunsets overlooking the lake. The lake water is amazingly clear and simply draws you toward it. The toughest moment is always when you turn your back on the lake and leave for reality.

MINOCQUA FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from spending one glorious week up at Cal's Cottage. We traveled with our family of 10...4 Adults and 6 children and couldn't have been more comfortable at the cabin.
The place is located perfectly...it's just a short drive into town. We loved awakening every morning to beautiful lake views from any level. The beds were comfy..plenty of seating for everyone in the living areas as well as outside.
The kids LOVED their daily activities that included paddleboating, kayaking, fishing, snail hunting, pontooning, and just splashing in the crystal clear lake.
The men enjoyed the fishing...and caught many huge bass, northern, etc.
The pontoon was a huge plus as we all enjoyed many cruises around the beautiful lake.
We have stayed at MANY Northwoods rentals over the years..and this one is truly a gem. Everything you needed to make a vacation great was taken care of with this rental. Greg was easily reachable and very responsive with any questions that arose. We will definitely be back.

NORTHWOODS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Cal's Cottage, it is spacious, beautifully decorated with a great view. On a main road with easy access to the road and lake. We snowmobile and enjoy the ample parking and large yard. It is a great place with room for the whole family and with very nice appliances (including washer and dryer) it makes a family vacation a breeze. Conveniently located it is close to groceries, restaurants, all kinds of shopping and all the activities you can imagine to make your stay enjoyable. We will be back next year!

VERY SELF-EXPLANATORY.

  • 5 of 5
We have been guests of Cal's Cottage for 14 years. We have always found it neat and clean and very well appointed. We like the proximity to town; the cozy cabin feel and beautiful lake views the quietness of the neighborhood; the availability of the pontoon and other watercraft; the clarity of water, sandy bottom and gradual depth; and the convenience of laundry facilities Our trip to Lake Arrowhead is our annual family vacation and it is so nice to have the space to fit all seven of us. Our granddaughters look forward to being there every year, as does the rest of the family. We have already reserved our week for 2014! We have developed an "over the phone" friendship with the owner and they have always been most friendly and accommodating We were there to see the cabin as the owner was re-modeling it to it's present state and it was fun to watch it go from what is was originally to the beautiful home it is now. I would very easily recommend Cal's to friends and family.

MULTIPLE-FAMILY FRIENDLY

  • 4 of 5
We were the second family of a two-family party and we stayed one of the two weeks we reserved. The house is absolutely perfect for two families. Between the two families, we had small children plus teenagers plus adults. There is enough space to share all together as well as ideal space to separate for nap times, time outs, or single-family times. The house is decorated beautifully with quality furniture. The kitchen is stocked with all the cooking amenities and utensils one might need but wouldn't think to (or want to worry to) pack. Slight disappointment that the motor of the fishing boat would not work properly and therefore, the husbands had to spend time away from the families to troubleshoot that. But we really enjoyed the kayak and the pontoon boat (when that motor functioned properly). We all think that the house could do without the broken pool table taking up so much space downstairs. All in all, I would return and make the 6- hour drive again and again and make it a family tradition.

Owner's Response: Great renters, very organized, accessible, prompt and thoughtful. We look forward to having them back next year. As noted, our property is perfect for large families or two families. Our property is unique by making multiple boats (pontoon and fishing boat) available to renters. We always appreciate renters who help us keep things running smoothly.
