There is no place better than to come to NW WI and enjoy the peace and serenity of Wisconsin's Northwoods in this updated, comfortable home. Each room has a beautiful view of Poskin Lake. The home has a nice level lot, and two private docks. A kayak, a paddle boat, and a swing are included in this rental. You can rent the pontoon boat if you would like to enjoy the entire lake. There are French Doors that lead to a large deck, with Adirondack chairs to relax in. There is a L-shaped dock with a bench and a ladder, along with a swim raft. At night, view the stars and enjoy some S'mores and marshmallows around the campfire.

Our home has two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Bedroom One has a queen-size log bed. Bedroom Two has a full-size log bed.

You can watch the sunset from this room, the deck or the dock!

Poskin Lake is located in northwest Wisconsin, 10 miles from Turtle Lake, 10 miles from Cumberland, and 14 miles from Rice Lake. The lake is 150 acres, and is excellent for fishing, as there is a 'no-wake law' from 6:00 PM-10:00 AM everyday. If you want to relax and enjoy God's beauty, this is the place to come to!

About Susan Carr

We have been sharing the lake home we were blessed with, as we do not have the time to enjoy it right now! We have had many of the same families come back year after year for the past decade! We enjoy telling about you about the local attractions, and having you relax and have the best vacation possible! Come stay and play....at our Northwoods Retreat!

Susan Carr purchased this house in 1994

Why Susan Carr chose Wisconsin

The lake home you can vacation at has a nice level lot, with a view of the lake from every window! The sunsets are incredible, and it is a very quiet and peaceful lake...come and enjoy this beautiful property!

What makes this house unique

There is a 'no-wake law' in effect from 6 PM until 10 AM, making this the perfect lake for people who like a lot of action during the day, yet who like to fish and enjoy the quiet too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us spend a week at your lovely lake home, everyone had a great time!



No matter how much I try, I still can't get over how wounderful the lake view is from your living room! It is just breath-taking, very room and spacious.



Thanks also for being such great hosts. This was a very relaxing week at your beautiful home on Poskin Lake, and I don't want to leave!

A Terrific Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight, ranging in age from one to somewhere beyond sixty, enjoyed a terrific week here at the end of July. The layout was perfect for our needs, especially for the one year old who put on a lot of miles between the kitchen and the sunken living room. You supplied everything we needed, both inside and out, to make it an easy, fun week. The kitchen/dining area worked perfectly for our meals; the games and puzzles provided entertainment for the six year old; the inner tubes and the raft made swimming fun; the kayak, canoe, and paddle boat gave us a chance to explore the lake; and the big yard made it easy to enjoy the badminton equipment and general running around. Evenings spent by the fire were a perfect way to end the day. Finally, the use of the pontoon on Friday gave the anglers a chance to try their luck and skill, although the fish had little to fear from our crew.

Thanks for providing a spot for our family get together.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind and informative review of our lake home and property Wayne. It is truly a wonderful place for all ages. The lake has so much to offer, and the lake home does too...so there is something for everyone! NW Wisconsin is the perfect location, with lots of great places to explore, golf at, shop, and eat at. Louie's Meat provides great award winning products, and we have a gas and charcoal grill to assist you in making these treats! Bona Casa also has the best Italian food around. Thanks again Wayne, we love great families like yours...so come back anytime! Take care!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation experience. We were looking for a lake home on short notice and can't believe our luck that we found this gem! We knew immediately upon arrival we had chosen well. The site is amazing - definitely the best lot on the lake (and we spent plenty of time scoping out other properties from the water). But even before arrival the owners were extremely prompt and helpful with booking and did a great job with a quick turn around so we could check in the day we wanted! I can't explain how "at home" we felt. Decor was perfect for a lake cabin without being "over the top" - the house was clean and well stocked with essentials (pay attention to the list on what you need to bring) but if you forget anything Barron is just a few miles away with a great grocery store/dollar store /Kwik Trip etc. No expensive tourist pricing here. Fishing bait is located in the opposite direction but still only about 6 miles. Our kids ranged in age from 16 to 5 and it was perfect for every age. The pontoon ran great and was perfect for fishing and a nice evening cruise. We also rented the row boat with motor - great to take one or 2 of the kids out to fish or just cruise the lake. Spent a lot of time kayaking too. Except to run to the grocery store we never left the lake. Hoping to come back soon (with 4 wheelers)! Just hope we haven't reviewed ourselves right out of this rental having any availability next year!

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this rental home! My family of six (kids 8-15yrs) had the most wonderful vacation here! The home was very clean and the views of the lake unbeatable. We had campfires, went fishing, went on pontoon boat rides, swimming off the dock and swim raft, kids found lots of turtles and frogs, quiet kayak boat rides on the lake and overall just plain relaxing. I loved that the home was so close to the water. Chuck and Susie were the best. This vacation rental had everything and more that were looking for. Our only regret is that we are not able to make it back in 2015!

Totally relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great experience with this rental. Plenty for the kids to do. Even though it was cool a few days, they swam for hours. If the swimming got old they jumped in the peddle boat, and when that ran it's course, there was the kayak. For the adults, the fire pit is great. The area is quiet. Only think I heard all week was the loons and Canada Goose calling at day light, and again in the evening. The fishing was fun for the whole crew. The weather was changing constantly for the first three days, but we managed to have a fish fry with our family and friends. Plus bring a few bags home. Nothing huge, but respectable fish. Oddly, not a crappie, which is what Poskin is known for, in the bunch.

Chuck and Susie are our type of people. Friendly, available if you need them.

Great lake Rental

  • 5 of 5

Great lake rental, fully equipped for families. Kitchen was fully stocked with all needed items. Pictures don't do this property justice. Private, large yard with plenty of trees and wildlife. Owners were very helpful with local info. Large living room with great views.
