About Larry and Sandy
Hello! We purchased this lake home as a getaway from our busy city life. We've created a beautiful home in the heart of the national forest where we've vacationed for the past eleven years and have opened it up to others who are looking for a peaceful getaway. We look forward to having you visit our piece of paradise!
Larry and Sandy purchased this House in 2008
Why Larry and Sandy chose Mountain
We bought this home in the winter of 2008. There was so much snow we had to park in the street and walk through two football fields of snow up the driveway. We knew before even seeing the home or the lake view that this was going to be ours. As good fortune had it, it became ours! It is a magical place to us. We are happy to share the magic with you!
What makes this House unique
With more than ten acres of wooded land and spectacular views of quiet Quill Lake, this is the perfect place to get away from the noise, unplug from technology, and be in community with friends and family. We have updated the home in numerous ways. Check out our photo album to see the before and after photos.

Little Slice of Heaven
I cannot say enough about this property and the owners Larry and Sandy! There was not one detail missed with this property. We came into a welcome basket filled with goodies, trail maps and every amenity you would find in your own home! The home was extremely clean and well kept. The renovations to the home were very up to date and comfortable. We loved waking up to the view of the lake in the morning and being right on the trail system was so convenient! We had a total of 6 of us and we all fit comfortably! Larry and Sandy were the most genuine down to earth people who went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect for us!! Such a great location, home and view! We would highly recommend!
Great property; fun time
We had a very relaxing time; great get away
Long weekend away with kids and grandparents
This lake house is better than the photos, which is saying something. It is VERY well appointed (ex: we bought marshmallow roasting rings...no need! We brought soap and sponges for dishes...no need! Forget a tolietry...they have a small selection so no need to rush to store for shampoo. Want to cook something a little more complex...their kitchen is A REAL KITCHEN). We would go back without hesitation. Larry and Sandy are excellent hosts with a fantastic space.
Fantastic place and location
The location is great, a beautiful view of the lake as you sit on the wrap around deck. It is secluded and peaceful which we really enjoyed. The inside has all modern appliances and was very clean. Lots of little amenities that we have never had at other places we have stayed, such as towels, bedding, and fire wood. There was a closet full of games and lots of DVD;s and books. The fire pits were large with plenty of chairs around to accommodate our group of 8. The sons caught bass and northerns and released them for the next person again. Hoping to get back next year.
Relaxing Oasis in the Northwoods
Booking and communication with Sandy & Larry was seamless. A series of bad storms hit the area just before our time at the property but they kept us informed and reassured us that our vacation would not be impacted... other than missing some of their beautiful trees. Everything was as advertised in the listing. Property was well maintained, easy to get acclimated with, and the perfect environment for relaxing. Listening to the loons in the evening, watching the stars from the hot tub at night, enjoying coffee & meals on the deck overlooking the lake, and playing with canoe & kayak in the water during the day was fantastic. We came away feeling refreshed and had only a couple of items on our "wish-list" that would've made it perfect. Not ideal location for swimming, so plan to use one of the local beaches or bring your water shoes. A couple of the beds were uncomfortable so bring a blow up mattress or topper if you have a sensitive back. These were minor issues that pale in comparison to the rest of the property and the great time we had there. 5 out 5!!!
Outstanding Lake Home
Everything in the listing is exactly as shown. The property is beautiful with a lake that is totally secluded. First, Larry and Sandy were the most gracious host. The communication was excellent and they attended to our every needs (with a great welcome basket and plenty of extra supplies if needed). They made sure that our stay would be as perfect as possible. We have stayed at VRBO's for over 10 years, and they were without a doubt the best host we have encountered. Second, this is not just a lake cabin or cottage - it is their home that they graciously rent out. We had our family vacation (with our 4 grown children, a couple of significant others, and 2 grand kids - 2 1/2 and 1 year old). We had plenty of room and all of us were very comfortable. The home, beautiful deck overlooking the lake, kitchen, fire pit area, horseshoe pits, and plenty of yard games gave us all plenty to do. The lake with boat, kayak, paddle boat, and canoe were great to go around the lake and enjoy the crystal clear water. Our stay was amazing. We had a great time and our family is already talking about coming back again next year. Thank you Larry and Sandy for opening up your home for us - you are amazing people.
