Fantastic getaway for the family on Lake Petenwell

Fantastic! We took the kids here for a week on the lake. The house was exactly everything we needed. The lake was beautiful. The Lure down the road was our go to for dinner! Big menu!

Guys Getaway

  • 5 of 5

4 of us came to this house for a golf and fishing weekend. Everything was as stated. The back porch was great as it rained half the time we were there. Joel was very easy to work with and helpful. The bar food and the service was fabulous at the Lure. We also rented a pontoon from them. (make sure you book it ahead of time as they only have 2) The Dirty Oar is a great supper club. All of our food tasted great and the service was also very good. (make reservations especially if you are going on a Friday night. We couldn't get in on Friday and went on Saturday)

Great rental house in a great location. Description on this site is accurate. The house has everything you need! Could actually sleep more than 8 people with all the beds, couches and futon. Very clean. I would definately recommend! Phone connection was not the greatest (Verizon) and there is no Wi-Fi. Only other negative was that the previous renters did not take out the trash, so the outside garbage was full. And the mosquitos were horrendous!! But, hey, we do live in Wisconsin so I guess that's to be expected.

House in the deep woods

  • 5 of 5

The listing and description of the house and surroundings was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner provided excellent customer service. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The location was very remote and our time spent there peaceful and enjoyable. We saw lots of wild turkeys and deer. The surrounding beaches and lakes were clean.We spent time at the various surrounding parks.

Third trip to Nekoosa

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented this wonderful home for the third time since 2009. The home is very neat and has everything you need to enjoy a getaway from the busy life.

Short walk to Lake Pettenwell beach or 5 minute drive to Lake Arrowhead. Both places aren't at all crowded even on weekends; have easy boat landings and very warm water for swimming. Fishing is great, too.

Wisconsin Dells' attractions are a short drive away, but we never bothered to go there.

John Felten, one of the owners, is very pleasant to deal with.

Practical/Affordable Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay. The home has a loft with 2 bedrooms that our kids had fun climbing the steps and looking down over the living/dining area and the main floor bedroom is right across from the bathroom. Woods surround the house. The owners are great to work with. It is a quick drive to beaches at Petenwell Lake as well as Arrowhead Lake. At Arrowhead we watched the Shermalot water ski show team perform for free! The beach there is nice for a young family, shallow for a quite a ways. It's a comfortable place to stay.
