A Cabin for All Seasons....

This high quality lake home is tastefully decorated with a Northwood's theme and includes spectacular lake views. The lake home includes breath taking picturesque views of the lake from a wall of windows in the great room and faces East for gorgeous sunrises. Knotty pine walls and ceilings throughout the interior create a wonderful 'Up North' feeling.

A 12x12 Screened Porch furnished with table and chairs and wicker furniture creates another relaxing area to enjoy. A second lower level deck includes a Log Swing and other Log Furniture.

The Master Bedroom is complete with an inviting Queen Log Bedroom Set that is sure to please. A second bedroom with a queen bed is located on the main level.

The lower level of the lake home is a recreational game room with a ping pong table and a 7 foot Air Hockey game table.

Bring your favorite DVD movies and CD's to play on the Surround Sound Stereo System in the Great Room or curl up next to the Fieldstone Fireplace to unwind from your busy schedule, or play some Ping Pong on the table tennis set up in the lower level.

Lake Minong (Minong Flowage) is a highly desirable lake in Northwestern Wisconsin. It is 1564 acres in size and is similar to the Canadian Wilderness. There are numerous islands with little bays to explore. The shoreline is heavily wooded with pines and hardwoods, and the lake provides abundant walleye, northern, bass and panfish. It is considered a sportsman's and recreational lake with good quality lake water. Swimming is great at Sand Island, the park public beach, or just off the dock.

This area also includes miles and miles of ATV and snowmobiling trails and is quite heavily forested.

If you need any supplies there is a great General Store located within 3 miles of the Lake Home. This store provides groceries, wine and beer, dvd rentals, fishing licenses and bait, gas, propane, and a full selection of hardware tools and supplies. Specialty coffee drinks available as well.

The Lake Home is located only 25 miles west of the quaint town of Hayward, Wisconsin with a wide selection of shops and restaurants.

Come experience this delightful, well-kept secret in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

About Ted LeVin

My wife and I found this property after searching for ten years to obtain a high quality lakeshore lot in which to build a dream home. We had so much fun creating a cozy northwoods home and did not use one piece of sheet rock. The home is filled with knotty pine walls and beamed ceilings. We love just sitting by the fieldstone fireplace!

Ted LeVin purchased this house in 2005

Why Ted LeVin chose Northern Wisconsin

Locating the lake home on a large lake with many islands and bays to explore seemed like the perfect place. When we saw the Bald Eagles nesting on the lake we were sold on the location.

What makes this house unique

The deck overlooking the lake is one of the prettiest views we have seen. It truly is like the 'On Golden Pond' movie pictures with a jutting peninsula and Pine trees.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Ted and Jill's lake home. We were raised in the northwest Wisconsin area so we know a lot about the area. This is one of the best, and anyone looking around at other places will find it difficult to find much better. The cabin is beautiful and that makes you want to treat it like your own. There are stairs going down to the lake, but they are easily walked. The steps are laid out well...even my 80+ year old father-in-law could even do them. When you get to the bottom, you are treated to a a beautiful view of the lake and a dock and sandy bottom to swim in! We spent a great deal of time kayaking the lake and the Namekogen River and swimming. We also rented a pontoon and pulled a tube, which was also quite enjoyable. There are very few places that we would ever stay at again...this is certainly one of them. Ted was a wonderful host and we gladly and highly recommend his lake home !

We have had the pleasure of staying at Ted and Jill's lake property several times. We wanted to take our friends who are visiting from Africa somewhere woodsy, on a lake, and relaxing. We couldn't have chosen a better place! They LOVED the experience! We rented a pontoon and got our limit of walleye, took the pontoon to a lake resort and had lunch, and visited the Golden Chipmunk for dinner. Such a great time. This cabin is immaculate and a fantastic getaway with owners who do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable! I would highly recommend this property! We will be back!

Beautiful place to relax and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters and their husbands, along with our 6 month old granddaughter enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful home. The lake home was everything we were hoping it would be so we could unwind from the hustle and bustle of daily life and begin to take in the breathtaking scenery. We were lucky enough to see eagles on several occasions perched in a tree right next to the house and also enjoyed hearing the loons each evening. The set-up of the home was very roomy and no one felt like they were on top of each other. The kitchen had everything you could imagine to cook with and we spent plenty of time on the 3 season's porch enjoying meals and playing the games that were thoughtfully provided at the home. The weather was beautiful for the majority of our stay and we were able to enjoy swimming on Sand Island, skiing and kayaking right from the pier and fishing on the beautiful flowage. Ted was an extremely gracious host and made sure to contact us when we arrived to ensure everything was going well and to inform us about some of the highlights in the area. I would recommend this lake home to anyone that is interested in enjoying the beauty of the great north woods in a stunning home!

Great place to spend a week or maybe more.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful home. the Owners, Ted and Jill are very friendly and helpful. We did have one small problem which they solved right away. Our grandchildren were disappointed that the fishing was not the best, but it was the 4th of July week with lots of recreational boaters. The house was well equipped and the beds were VERY comfortable. The grandchildren really enjoyed the air hockey game and the pingpong table. The fireworks around the lake were great. Especially the ones sent up just across the water from us. We would rent it again.

The best cabin around the Hayward area!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is by far the best! We have now vacationed there 3 times and look forward to many more. Ted is so wonderful to rent from! We love the lake so much and can't believe how many fish we can catch daily. The cabin accommodations are spectacular, and the location is perfect!!!!
