Great cabin for large families. Many spacious gathering areas inside and out.

Rick Smith purchased this House in 2011
Why Rick Smith chose Lac du Flambeau
This cabin is a mix of both of our loves, water and woods. We get the serenity of the woods with a beautiful view of the lake and cove.
What makes this House unique
Calm waters and fishing right off the dock, along with the enjoyment of the entire 10 lake chain of lakes. Great deep water swimming off the lakeside dock and relaxation in many different spots on the property. This property can accommodate multiple families of 11 guests or more.

Amazing and quiet Northwoods retreat!
Stayed here for a week and had a great experience. The kids felt like fishing masters catching 15 bluegills a piece in the cove and being able to leave your boat docked was awesome. Rick and Sue were great to deal with- very responsive and welcoming. Rick gave us some great tips on renting a pontoon that enhanced the trip for everyone. The only thing that would have enhanced the stay would have been a larger area to hang out and eat. The dining table seats 6 and there is another table out on the porch, but it would have been nice to all sit at the same table. Other than that we loved it. We will definitely be back!
Great private setting.
This property is set back from the lake on a small cove. It is very private and served our family extremely well. The property has a pier on the cove and on the main lake. It's on the Fence Lake chain which is a group of ten lakes. The kids were able to sleep in the loft leaving three additional bedrooms for the adults. The cabin is well maintained. The owner was responsive to our inquiries and made sure everything was as promised.
We had a great time! Rick & Sue were nice to work with
The property clean, well maintained and located in a beautiful and private setting. We stayed in winter and the gas fireplaces were a nice touch and effective for the main living rooms while the baseboard heating kept the rooms warm. The kitchen and bathrooms/showers were very nice. We had a great time at the Minocqua Winter Park and enjoyed the relatively close downhill skiing facilities. The property is private, but conveniently located to nearby shopping and dining. The winter getaway was great, but summer on the private pond (linked to the lake) must be really nice...we hope to come back.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Winter in the North woods is magical! Next time you come you’ll have to check out The WinMan trails too - nice for skiing and snowshoeing. Thanks for taking such good care of our lake house!
Great property for the up north experience!
Beautiful home that comfortably accommodated the 9 of us and our dogs. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. Private boat launch for our runabout boat was a nice plus too. Fishing off the 3 docks produced some smaller fish for my youngest brother. Rick was a pleasure to deal with. We hope to stay again!
Great relaxing location
My wife and I just returned from spending the week of Labor day at the Otter Bay home. Granted it was only 2 of us, and our older dog, this home is large enough for an extended family or multiple families to enjoy. The lagoon is relaxing and peaceful and access to the larger lakes would be quick and easy with your personal or a rented boat. We fished, star gazed, enjoyed a drink on the lake shore and a great evening by one of the 2 available fire pits. The town is small but there is a smaller grocery store available or a Trig's grocery store and Wal Mart only a quick 12-15 minutes away. There are a few mom and pop restaurants in the area and the Lake of the Torches Casino has dining and gambling only 3 miles away.
Communication with the owners was great. We had a few questions, after arrival and their response was quick and responsive. We've rented numerous properties over the years and this one ranks high on our list. We would definitely return again.
Best week ever
We had a great time. It was quiet, private, a perfect vacation week.
Having your our private bay is really nice. the house was roomy any everything you needed to relax.
