St Germain Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Deer Ridge is located in the great northwoods of Wisconsin. This area provides YEAR-ROUND activities for the entire family. Deer Ridge has been completely renovated and sits on the shore of Big St Germain. It is nestled among 100 year old pines. The shoreline is sandy, shallow and excellent for swimming.

Big St Germain Lake is a 1600 acre Class 'A' Musky lake. It also offers many other species of fish (panfish, small and large mouth bass, northern pike, crappie and others). A new 14' jon fishing boat is included.

Deer Ridge is only minutes away from a variety of the Northwood's best hiking and biking trails, including the new paved St Germain Bike Trail with its gentle terrain. Awassa Nature Preserve Trail and Fern Ridge Hiking Trail are close by. Golf, horseback riding, shopping, dining, and much more are available year-round.

St Germain's winter wonderland offers ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing on the nearby trails and snowmobiling. The scenic Bo-Boen snowmobile trail is adjacent to the cabin.

Deer Ridge has a total knotty pine interior, wood fireplace and sleeps up to 5 people. The kitchen is fully equipped (don't forget to bring your own food!). Enjoy nature at its finest - the deer really do walk right past the cabin!

Come join the adventure of the Northwoods. Come prepared to enjoy Deer Ridge.

Deer Ridge - Cozy Family Cabin on Big St Germain

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located conveniently between Minocqua and Eagle River and was very easy to find with the directions provided. St Germain is less than a mile away and has everything you might need for your stay. Tom was easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my e-mails.

We stayed at Deer Ridge Cabin during the first week in October 2016 and arrived to find the cabin to be the perfect example of what a north woods cabin should be. It had all modern conveniences yet had a rustic north woods feel about it that was very warm and inviting. The interior and exterior of the cabin and grounds have been nicely maintained and the interior of the cabin was simply spotless. My compliments to the cleaning crew!

During our days we drove around the area looking at the fall colors and returned in the evening to relax and watch the local deer herd who stopped by several times a day/night to see if there happened to be more apples laying around. We also did a little fishing off of the pier which was fun. We look forward to visiting again!

Great Relaxing Visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights at this cabin. It is a great place to stay. It is on lake frontage with a fire pit near the lake. The cabin is neat, clean and inviting. The fireplace is wonderful with electronic candles and minature lights on the mantle making for a relaxing, romantic atmosphere. Deer are plentiful in the area and fun to watch. Although they are apprehensive of humans, they come very close and are not easily startled. There are many restaurants and places of interest in St. Germain, Saynor, Boulder Junction, Eagle River, Minocqua and Wodruff are all within 15 miles and have places of interest.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE and hope to return in the future.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in September 2016, after Labor Day, so things had quieted down as far as the number of people around. It was extremely peaceful and relaxing. Deer coming up to us in the evening (looking for handouts), sitting on the boat dock overlooking the lake, listening to the breeze in the trees....I feel my BP falling just thinking about it. The bike trail system is wonderful. The best lake for blue gill fishing was Carrol Lake; we were pulling them in hand over fist. The cabin was neat & clean, perfectly stocked, good WIFI, satellite TV. Really could not have asked for more! Thank you, Tom!

A Great Trip With Family!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our first real "Family Vacation" and I will tell you that Deer Ridge helped make this trip a life lasting memory! From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. It was easy to get to the cabin with the directions provided and parking was not a problem. The area felt very secure and was at ease letting the kids (5 and 8) ride their bikes around the property. I immediately noticed how well the cabin and grounds were maintained. Everything was kept nice and orderly. The inside of the cabin was spotless. From the kitchen to the bathroom, everything was very clean. We did plan our trip at the end of summer but the weather was hot and humid. The nights did cool down a bit but without A/C it was a touch stuffy inside. Oh, and be sure to take your garbage to the dumpster every night or you will be aroused out of bed by a gang of raccoons! LOL!!! My mistake!!!

The outdoor activities were amazing!!! The row boat was great to just get out on the lake and relax with the kids as my wife sat on the dock reading her book. The fishing from the pier was great. We caught some keeper size fish but we did toss them back for others to catch. The nightly fires down by the lake were great. We sat down there and just let the time pass. The kids and I laid on the pier each night and watched the blanket of stars overhead with the occasional satellite passing over.

The attractions around the cabin were great. There are many restaurants and bars only minutes from the cabin as well as gas stations and the grocery store that we visited every day! Minocqua and Eagle River are just a short drive from the cabin which added a bit more variety to our stay. Both of those towns are fantastic and have lots to offer but it was nice to get back to the cabin after a day of tourist stuff and leave the hustle and bustle behind.

All in all, this trip was perfect! The cabin was awesome and the Northwoods were spectacular! I would recommend this cabin to anyone!

Wow we had an awesome week

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we could have hoped for. Beautiful cabin on a beautiful lake with all the conveniences of home. Had a fire at dark next to the lake every day we stayed. Fishing was good and thanks for the boat as well. We enjoyed exploring both Eagle River and Minoqua and had a great breakfast the day we left at the Wolf Pack Cafe...Pancakes were amazing. Took our bikes and discovered you can ride around Big St Germain Lake. 15 miles of great scenery. Played 9 holes at Eagle River Golf Course. We saw countless deer and eagles flew to their nest every day we were fishing. We hope to return soon. You have a north woods gem

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

For the last several years, we have stayed at Deer Ridge and most years, three or four times each season. We enjoy the warmth and coziness of the cabin - it is always ready for us with everything we need. It has a nice boat launch nearby with a place to park a trailer. It offers a semi-private pier to dock your boat on a quiet fishing lake. The pier also offers a place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine to watch the Bald Eagles overhead. St. Germain and the surrounding area have many outstanding places for breakfast and five-star dining.
