About Bob

Our family has enjoyed this home for many years. I has been an absolute joy watching our children grow and enjoy our private piece of nature.

Bob purchased this house in 1990

Why Bob chose St Germain

This is the most peaceful spot I have found in the area. It is so very close to all the local resources but gives total privacy. Staying here provides the feel of what the Northwoods used to be but having all the modern conveiences.

What makes this house unique

Being on a piece of land that is bordered by State Forest on one side and a vintage 1900's full log cabin on the other (not even visible through the forest), the total sense of being 'one with nature' washes the City blues away.

Bald eagles, deer, loons, woodpeckers, blue herons, etc. are commonly seen from the house, outdoor deck or while sitting at the end of the pier.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An email from a guest, June 2008:



Hi Bob,

Back in Alaska after a wonderful trip; the house on Gilmore Lake is

quite special to our family now, as we spent fun=filled days there,

even though not as long as had hoped; the granddaughters had many

experiences that were new to them--boating with their Dad on a fishing

boat with an outboard, actually catching fish, feeding the "pets"

dockside, hearing the loons and frogs; the two eagles on the point

across the lake posing atop the pine in all their granduer;

horseshoes, a campfire on the last night and a black bear strolling

through the back yard {walked between the outhouse and the big stone}

the morning we left; quite a punctuation mark to our stay!

We took one morning and drove about the area--Eagle River-Three Lakes

and I was so glad to find it really hasn't changed all that much in a

few decades:) The hummingbirds were quite happy there and so were we;



A very special time and place! Just wanted you to know we

appreciated it!

Perfect "Up North" retreat

Perfect "Up North" retreat
  • 5 of 5
This is exactly what a cabin "up north" should be! Peaceful and private on a 500" stretch of shoreline, extremely well-maintained, comfortable and cosy - plus a great HD TV, wireless internet and a land-line phone - make this property one of the most comfortable ones you could find - a great lake home with a "woodsy" feel to it. A brand new mattress provided the best nights' sleep in years. The kitchen was well stocked and as my husband said, "the knives were good and sharp"! We always had hot water, there were plenty of towels, heat or air conditioning was available and we had comfortable furniture to curl up in. Having Steve and Sharon, the caretakers, available during one's stay is certainly a plus and Bob, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and only a phone call away.

From the loons calling to each other across the lake to the eagles soaring across the front of the cabin, you'll always be aware that you are, indeed, in God's country. We certainly highly recommend this property and hope to return again next year.

All Good

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this house from August 16 – 23, 2013. This vacation home does not present itself as the Ritz-Carlton, and it should not be rated as such. However, it totally succeeds at being what it is: a well-built, lovingly maintained, clean and well-appointed lakefront cabin in the woods. It is situated on a very large lot with no neighbors in sight. It offers peace, quiet, and privacy, along with comfortable furniture, good showers, and a great bed. It’s homey, welcoming, and it looks just like the photos in the VRBO listing, except that the TV is now a big HD flat screen model. The outside is just as appealing -- a front row seat for viewing Bald Eagles, Loons, and Kingfishers, which we saw at close range every day. All of this is exactly what we were looking for in our vacation. The owner is an extremely nice individual, a pleasure to deal with. This adds up to a 5-Star rating from us. Thanks, Bob, for a week that ended too soon.

Owner's Response: Our family has enjoyed this special place for over 35 years. When we decided to rent, on a limited basis, guests like you and your wife were exactly what we hoped for.
I cannot express well enough how pleased we were to have shared our home with you.
Thank you for your kind words and know that you're welcome back any time!

Beautiful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took a long weekend vacation to the northwoods... and had a fabulous time in this cabin. It is in a perfect location and is absolutely wonderful. We were lucky to make it up there in time to see the wonderful fall colors- breathtaking! We caught multiple fish during our 4 days on the lake- and witnessed another fisherman catch a 48 inch Musky! The cabin has everything you need- perfect for a getaway from the city! All the amenities, location, and beauty make it a great cabin rental. Can't wait to come back in the winter or summer!

Perfect place for a peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for peace and relaxation for our summer getaway and we found it on Gilmore Lake. The house was the perfect mix of lived-in comfort and Northwoods charm and it offered everything we needed.The kitchen was fully stocked with everything for cooking most of our meals. We enjoyed seeing the wildlife (eagles, deer, and loons) around the lake, sitting by the firepit and star gazing from the dock. There were very few other boats on the lake making it very peaceful. The owner was very reponsive when we e-mailed him for fishing tips. This is a great place for a couples getaway or a family vacation. We hope to return and bring our kids the next time.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I could not have been more pleased with this trip. The house was in great shape, and Bob was great for any concerns we had. Spending our week here was completely relaxing. Everything was so beautiful and peaceful. The kids loved running around outside while I read in the hammock and my husband fished on the pier. Entertainment was easily found both at home and in town.The paddle boat was perfect for a sweet romantic ride at sunset, and there were many great places for both family dinners and date nights. The homey and rustic feel of the location was exactly what we were looking for in a fun and relaxing week off as a family.

Peaceful Vacationing

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful and relaxing time in St. Germain. We had great weather, so we enjoyed the sun while fishing, reading out on the pier and paddle boating! The home was so cozy and clean and had everything for our living and cooking needs! Lots of hiking, star watching, canoeing (Hawks Nest) and enjoying life (Tiki Bar!). I hope to return this summer, too! Thanks Bob!
