About Brenda Strilzuk

Hello, My husband and I are owners of a

Landscape, Nursery and Greenhouse

business! We enjoy the outdoors, love

our five boys, and live in the country.

Our Half Moon Kennel business gives

us enjoyment with labradors and now

have babies. Naturally we are excited

to have puppies this spring, it seems

to be a renewal of life with little pups

running around in the green grass!

With new puppies we can expect

weekend visitors which is fun for


Brenda Strilzuk purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Brenda Strilzuk chose Northern Wisconsin

The location is prime, nearby lakes and woods provide scenic beauty and various wildlife will visit

quite often. We feel there is a need for families and friends to build relationships,enjoy one

another in a relaxed enviornment, and celebrate those special occasions in life!!

What makes this cabin unique

When the night is clear you will see starry skies with galaxies too many to name. Nothing can compare to the smell of a roaring bonfire and the food cooking to perfection on the outdoor grill!!

Great gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this home. The open concept main floor was perfect for cooking and eating together. There was plenty of sleeping space and the home is cozy. We will most likely be back!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The owners were very accommodating. The house was very clean and nicely furnished. We slept 13 people comfortably. I have no negative comments what so ever. The family of black bears that paid us a visit was an added bonus.

We chose this home for a girls weekend. The home was more than we expected; the pictures don't fully capture how wonderful this property really is. The homeowner was accommodating, easy to work with, and extremely helpful. The home was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and there was plenty of room for the five of us to stretch out and relax. The deck was a favorite place to sit and visit while enjoying the beautiful wooded view. We were well taken care of and hope to return again next year.

Balsam Lake House in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This property was just as it was described--it was beautiful and fully equiped with everything you might need. We loved having a bathroom for each of 3 couples staying. Everything was very clean and the outdoors was pleasant. We cooked every meal at the house, and had a campfire which was also equiped for whatever you needed. The owner phoned to make sure we had everything we needed. We golfed at 3 courses close by, and it's a perfect location for golfers. I would highly recommend this spot for a golf week-end.

Delightful northwoods retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was every bit as described. The location is back in a beautiful wooded setting with complete privacy. Brenda was more than all our needs. The property is clean and well maintained. Every kitchen item you could need is provided. It would be perfect for a large family, or 3-4 couples. The VRBO pictures represent exactly what you are going to get, with the exception that the view and surroundings are more beautiful. This place is perfect for a northwoods getaway. I would recommend it to anybody. The proximity to Interstate State park, The Ice Age Trail and the Gandy Dancer trail is excellent, although I would recommend a good map of the back roads.
