I'm an attorney in Birmingham, Alabama. I've been a pilot for many years, so for me the flight to the northwoods takes about as long as driving from Milwaukee.
Neil Halvorson purchased this house in 1994
My parents took me to the Northwoods as a child. I have fond memories of fishing, swimming, sitting by the camp fire, hunting and hiking. I've never lost my love for the Northwoods. When you arrive and smell the pine air, see the eagles flying overhead and experience the wildlife and purity that is this pristine wilderness, you'll know you've arrived at a very different, truly unique kind of place.
The peace and serenity are exceptional. The stars at night - especially the milky way - absolutely breathtaking. The warm days and cool nights, the crystal clear water, the pine air, the eagles overhead and the fox that runs through the yard, the many deer that saunter by to drink at the lake, all this makes this place spectacularly beautiful, truly magical, and totally enchanting. You'll never forget it.
Our family stayed in Aug. for a week. It is a very private location with the most wonderful lake. The water is clear and weed free. The kids spend everyday in the water including in the rain. The swim platform was great and it is very quiet. Few other boaters. The house is large and worked well for us. However while we were there the house was for sale and people came down to the house unannounced to look at it and we were not very comfortable with that. The house has some deferred maintenance in all the doors to the decks are inoperable, the steps outside are in need of repair and the hot tub was not functioning at all, there is no pizza oven as advertised. The kitchen was in need of a deep clean and you have to hall your own trash to the landfill. But overall we had a great time. The weather was good, the lake was BEAUTIFUL and we got enough good fish for a fish dinner on the last day. I don't like to give any negative comments but we rely heavily on the reviews left by others so we wanted to be honest.
We were there from June 25 thru July 2nd. We are from just outside Dallas where the temp. is regularly approaching 100 degrees. There were six of us including my 14 month old granddaughter. At first we were a little disappointed because there was no cable or satellite for the television and we virtually had no signal for our phones or laptops. But after a few days we realized this place was perfect, our family actually talked and did things as a family. We went to Iron River , Mich. for the absolutely best Pizza we have ever had and we went to Phelps, Wis. for broasted chicken in a little bar next to a gas station. The people were fantastic and the owner of the Jewel was very helpful in every way. The home was super, we would however recommend that you take strong horse fly spray if you head out on a boat. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and really enjoyed the lake. We even saw two bald eagles that make their home across from the Jewel. If you fly into Green Bay be sure you put Phelps Wisc. in the navigator. All in all it was a very peaceful and relaxing week. Can you imagine sleeping with the windows open with 40-50 degrees at night and 60's & 70's during the days. Loved it and would highly recommend Jewel of the North.
If you are looking for a true Northwoods experience look no further than Smoky Lake Lodge. This beautiful home was everything we were looking for and more. We recently spent a week here with 3 families including 6 adults and 10 children. There was plenty of sleeping room and the kids loved the spacious loft with bunk beds. The house was stocked as if the owners lived there themselves. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and was quick to respond when we had some questions while we were there.
The water was crystal clear and you couldn't throw in a fishing line without pulling out a fish. We loved the fact that the home was surrounded by the beautiful forest and the privacy was unmatched. The kids especially loved the huge yard where every day at 3:30 they held a whiffle ball game.
We definitely recommend this home for a family getaway. We can't wait to vacation at the lodge again next year. Thank you Neil.
Our family stayed here and it was clean, beautiful and soooo homey! The location is so relaxing.
The pictures are not as nice as the real thing! We strongly recommend a week here!
We just finished our week at your beautiful lake home and it was everything that you promised. Our entire family agreed that it was a great vacation home for us, and the property was beautiful. We were glad to be there instead of Gulf Shores. The weather was perfect..we are sooooo tired of 100 degree days and 90 degree nights.
The boat was awesome and we had no problems with it...caught almost 50 fish. My son saw a bear a few miles from your place. I watched and watched, but never saw one....bummer...lol. We saw several deer, eagles, a falcon, and the usual ....but I really wanted to see a bear.
We were usually the only ones on the lake which was awesome. We spent most of our time fishing and swimming. The beach was perfect for the little ones. My grandson has it all figure out. He will trade his house for yours, and I can come and see them all of the time.....he's 4. How do you feel about St.Louis?
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our vacation was perfect.
God bless you.
The listings is completely accurate, and the property kept up like a private home. The photos were accurate and the owners always ready to accomodate. I highly recommend the lodge.
The lodge was filled with all the amenities, and the setting was perfect! The lake was cool, large, clear and peaceful. Total privacy with all the luxuries! Spacious, fully equipped. The spacious deck, the huge yard, the full view of the lake, private beach, fire places inside and out, cathedral cieling, top notch furnishings, were all we could hope for. In the area there are MORE lakes, parks everywhere, small towns with quaint restaurants and all that the UP offers without being too isolated. Great road access to and from. The privacy from neighbors can't be matched. The lot sizes and dense woods are perfectly balanced with a great yard for other activities and a sunny, pleasant atmosphere.
Ski Brule 20 minutes away. Bessemer, MI ski areas 75 minutes away.
