Welcome to Turning Leaf Cottage near Balsam Lake, WI. The property is located on Long Lake two miles from Balsam Lake, WI, in Polk County. It is our pleasure to offer this newly constructed property with all the comforts of home.

The two-level home has a great room on the main floor with gas fireplace, open floor plan with kitchen and dining area that overlooks the wonderful view of the lake through the expansive window.The home has 2600 sq. feet of finished space - 1300 feet on each level. Select a good book from the library shelf or catch up on some DVD's,videos,or play some table games. This level offers a full bath, bedroom with twin beds (can be made up as a king size) and bedroom with queen bed.

We invite you to greet the day with coffee on our deck overlooking the lake, relax reading a great book, enjoy the sunsets from our west-facing lodge. You will find the wildlife enjoyable to observe:loons, hummingbirds, herons, and eagles will delight the bird watcher. You will enjoy the wooden swing seat for two on the deck. We find we eat most of our meals here in the summer.

The lower level is a walk-out to a patio with lakeview. The lower family room offers another gas fireplace, lounge area for chatting, table for playing games. A full bath and laundry area is on this level.There are two bedrooms also on this level - one with queen bed and one with 2 twin beds.

Perfect Summer at the Lake

We had a family reunion-type vacation here the summer of 2011, my sister-in-law went back in 2012 with her girl friends and we are planning a trip there again this year.

It is as nice as it seems from the pictures and description. It was clean and well maintained. It was comfortable and homey, but not cluttered with so much personal stuff that we felt odd being in a stranger's personal space. There were lots of games for us when we retired inside (foosball and basketball in the garage too!) The kitchen had all we needed. The porch, the fire pit and the yard are all lovely places to hang out. Inside, it was nice to have a den separate from the other main living area -- for when the grownups needed quiet time. We never used the TV or anything, so I can't comment on that, but we did have telephone reception.

And then, there was the lake. I know lakes change year-to-year, month-to-month, but the lake was awesome when we were there. We rented the pontoon boat and swam every day - from the dock or further out. Next time we will bring bikes too.

The location was easy to get to for family coming from Minneapolis. There are no groceries really close -- you have to drive about 20 minutes or so. There is a small town with a couple of restaurants nearby, but not much. We didn't mind at all -- we were perfectly happy planning ahead and staying put in this lovely home.

We were happy to meet the owners when they came up at the end of our stay. Very nice people, who otherwise were not around -- though they were available and helpful by telephone when we noticed a small leak during a summer storm.

Lovely Lake Home

This was a great place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren, 6 adults and 2 teenagers. The house is nicely furnished and spotless. We loved the bonfires on the beach, beautiful sunsets and the kids loved the paddleboat and games. Great place.
