FAMILY RETREATS AT VPR-SLEEPS 20, 5BR+, 3BA, 2ACRES, ROOMY!

Minocqua Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

We offer others the use of this very special house/lodge for family retreats. 2600 square feet of lodge space, plus a bunkhouse, on a two acre estate, with 252 feet of lake frontage. The lodge is nestled on the south side of Johnson Lake, an 88 acre all recreation lake. There are no restrictions on lake use, other than the normal boating rules. The frontage has a very nice sandy bottom, with a gradual drop, where children have a great time swimming and playing. The lake is deep and clean, and a real huge plus, it has no rocky area to damage props. Get soul food on the quiet morning in one of the 3 Kayaks, a small canoe or the old rowboat

Great fishing for Musky, Bass, Walleye, Pan fish, and more.

The lake level is very stable, and has not dropped like other lakes in the area.

Experience God's nature all around you. We love to hear the loons and watch the Eagles off the deck. You can go on a hike, or bike (several bikes supplied free) with your group on one of the nature trails in the area, which includes the well known Bearskin Trail.

Your teens can bike or walk to town, to the arcade and ice cream shop, or the movie theater, while the adults relax at home. The estate is secluded, yet within easy biking distance of the famous hub of the North Woods, downtown Minocqua,

You and yours can make some great memories and learn interesting things, taking in the Logging show, racing your kids at go carting, or take them horseback riding. Have some fun playing mini golf, or play the full size great golf courses in the area. And many, many more interesting attractions and activities are within a few miles of the lodge.

When you get hungry, the fully equipped kitchen will feed you well, or there are a variety of Restaurants like, the 'Island Cafe', or 'Paul Bunyan's' famous breakfast, or rub elbows with other vacationers and locals at 'The Thirsty Whale' night club on the water. We all love to go down town in Minocqua and visit the quaint shops to load up on some souvenirs, and especially the home made fudge and candy from the Candy shop.

Enjoy the excellent entertainment of the twice weekly free ski show, downtown Minocqua, just west of the bridge.

I forgot to mention that the volunteers who put on the free ski shows, also offer free ski training during the week. Exciting thing to do for you or your children.

The interesting and fun lumberjack show in just East of hwy 51, right on Hwy 47, which is only a mile away.

Rest easy in one of the five main floor bedrooms which all are appointed with queen beds. The lower level as well has two queen beds, a single, and a fold away cot. The separate game room/bunk house has a bunk bed a single, and a double convertible futon, and another queen.

Beds for up to 20,

Relax in the great room in Italian Leather couches and recliner, looking over the lake, or into the flames in the large stone fireplace. Get some board games out of the hall closet to play with the kids , or, entertain by watching DVDs or Direct TV in the evening.

Watch off the huge deck at the umbrella tables as the active among you go fishing, ride Jet-skis, ski, wake-board, Tube, canoe, kayak, float, and swim in the 88 acre all recreation lake.

A couple years ago, we had a pair of eagles build a nest in one of the huge old growth White Pines by the lake, just adjacent to our property. Eagles are flying and roosting close by all the time. It is fun to watch the young eagles grow, and the huge eagle flying around close by, and catching and bringing food to their young. The young eagle let you know when a parent is coming with food for them with their crys. Quite often we find Eagle feathers on the lawn, which make nice reminders on your mantle at home.

A bunch of Bikes, 3 kayaks, a canoe, inflatable water toys and a rowboat are there for your use.

A unconnected party offers us a Jet ski, a pontoon boat, and ski boat to rent to experienced boaters, at about a 50% discount from going rates.

Always wear life jackets in the watercraft!

GREAT FISHING!!

You can watch the fish swim by the dock, (sometimes a big muskie) or watch the pan-fish bite on your lure in the clear water, as you and your loved ones soak in soul food at the end of the dock. Spinner casting off the east side of the point usually results in catching some nice Bass.

You can all have fun roasting hot dogs and then, make some S-mores over the sunken masonry fire pit overlooking the lake. (Too sweet- I get a toothache thinking about it. But my wife and kids love em. lol.)

Wake up to the distinctive calls of the Loon, and stroll down to the dock to see a sight that feeds the soul, a pristine sunrise reflected on glassy water, and the trees across the lake beautiful in the reflection as well.

Look back at the Bald Eagle's cry, as he alights on the top of one of the huge, Old Growth White Pines on the property, and then swoops down to catch a fish right in front of you.

After seeing and appreciating the incredible creation of the Almighty, learn more of Him reading in the Bibles that we try to keep in each bedroom drawer. If you want to read it and get the blessings that come from it, take one with you when you go.

Gather some dry kindling out of the trees, and grill a wood cooked (the best flavor) meal on the masonry grill on the front patio, or the charcoal grill on the back deck.

Great Family and friends memories are the best of life! Spend quality time together! Very important, in our active and busy lives.

Two car attached garage, with a ping pong table, a separate bunk house/game room, a tent site area, and a circle drive provide more than enough room for everyone maneuver, with plenty of parking on the drive and in the trees

Nearby Laundry-mat with drop off Laundry service, and plenty of restaurants. A vacation for mom too!

WINTER FUN! The location is perfect for snowmobiling, with close access to the well groomed Minocqua trail system. Snowmobile rentals are available within 2 miles.

SKI AREAS- Want a break from snowmobiling. Not far up Hwy 51/39 are the great Upper Peninsula ski areas.

About Roy

I am a pastor of a Sovereign Grace Baptist church, and we use the property from time to time for retreats, and appreciating the amazing creation we are living in.

Roy purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Roy chose Minocqua

We believe it is God's providence that we get to use this piece of creation, which is about as good as it gets. Two acres with a long frontage is really nice, with room for a larger group.

What makes this lodge unique

We call this beautiful location 'Virgin Pines Retreat', because the environment and the energy of nature in this particular spot is amazingly peaceful and rejuvenating. We feel close to God there. We all want to come back again and again.

The pine scent from the numberless pine trees, makes breathing easier, purifying the air.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"WOW! What a home- We stayed this past August with 16 people and had a wonderful time! The home has been nicely updated with plenty of room for our family dinners, had a HUGE deck overlooking the lake and beatifully clear water with nice sandy bottom. GREAT for small kids to play and older kids to fish off the pier. Convenient to stores, golf, petting zoo and much more! Would definately stay again!"

Working dehumidifiers needed desperately!!

  • 3 of 5
The first floor area of Virgin Pines is very acceptable however the lower level was not. There is no way anyone could have stayed down there this week because of the major dampness. When you post how much room you have it is misleading. Also all pontoon rentals we used in the past had a back up fuel source and would not have caused my family to run out of gas on the other side of the lake.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the dehumidifiers did both stop working, unknown to me, but were repaired and will be replaced next spring. You had a week of heavy humidity. We are also updating the ventilation system to improve the situation.
The Pontoon boat is owned by another entity and is not connected to the lodge rental.

Our Excellent Virgin Pines Vacation

  • 5 of 5
WOW! Virgin Pines afforded us the best vacation ever. The area is a delight. Lots to do. The accommodations were the best. My extended family has been vacationing in the Northwoods of Wisconsin for the pass 15 years and this year we hit pay dirt with the Virgin Pines on Lake Johnson. The lake was beautifully warm and clean. The house was clean and comfortable with a great kitchen. The beds were like home. The toys, including bikes, Ping Pong table and a sand volley ball court were well used. A fun town is nearby and an easy bike ride. We all will be back next year to again enjoy Virgin Pines to the fullest. It's a great take!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Great for a family vacation. Well equipped and clean, large bedrooms with comfortable mattresses. Clear like with nice swimming area for kids. Boat, canoe, kayaks and bikes to use. Roomy so everyone is not on top of each other. Huge deck with large umbrella table where I spent many hours. Close to many other activities and restaurants. All in all well satisfied.

We had a great time at the lake. Our kids enjoyed the lake, tubing and skiing. We liked being able to ride our bikes into Minocqua to shop, etc. The set up was great for two families to share. We enjoyed the large kitchen and the family room. We also loved sitting out on the deck. The only drawback was that the basement was a little musty smelling. We had a very relaxing week.

We are two miles from downtown Minocqua, the hub of the North Woods. We like the Lumberjack show, only a mile away, and the Waterski show twice a week, 2 miles away. Paul Bunyon's lumberjack breakfast will hold you all day. Every year we race the family at the go Cart track, and fight each other at the paintball place, which is down by Tomahawk. (the mothers stay home) Several churches close by, the nearest is in walking distance, very friendly and welcoming people.

Many eating places in the area, within a couple miles, with a wide variety of cuisine, to meet what ever craving you have.
