About Bettie Abio
Al and I live in Dallas and fell in love with Minocqua about 3 years ago after vacationing in the Northwoods to escape the summer heat of Texas. We are both still working which is the reason we are making our home available for summer lease. Al is an engineer and after retirement he started an executive search firm (EPC Combine) with a partner. I retired after owning a real estate company for 25+ years and am a Realtor with Ebby Halliday Company. We love all the wonderful things about the area and plan to spend as much time there as possible with our children, grandchildren and friends.
Bettie Abio purchased this house in 2013
Why Bettie Abio chose Minocqua
This is the former home of Casey Lambert, a legend in the area whose friends and guests included Charles Lindberg, Elizabeth Taylor and President Dwight Eisenhower. Marvel at the beauty of Lake Minocqua, a destination for generations for families from all around the world.

What makes this house unique
We chose this property after looking each time we visited the area. Some I loved and Al didn't, some he liked and I couldn't stand! When we walked into this home we both said 'this is it'. It has everything we both wanted; starting with an oversized 3 car garage with craft room for me and work area for Al. It also has a floored second story providing wonderful storage which could be converted into a game room or bunk area for grandchildren. The guest house is adorable, the large lot is beautiful and private. The character of the house is perfect for us and something we were seeking with its open dining room/living room, 2 fireplaces, wood floors, screened porches overlooking the lawn and lake. Kitchen is very up to date as well and the bathrooms. Basement has spot to build wine cave to house 1300 bottles! Perfect for us!
