There are several dining/supper clubs and restaurants including a couple on Lost Land Lake, as well as golf courses, riding stables, and boat repair; all within a short driving distance. The upscale Ranch style home sits just 50 feet back from 183 feet of sugar sand beach featuring a Western view of soaring bald eagles, loons, and spectacular sunsets. OGE's panoramic front porch is located in Wilson Bay just inside Green Point on the quiet waters of Lost Land Lake, and the Chequamegon National Forest is your surrounding Northwoods home. Lost Land Lake is a 1304-acre gem connected by thoroughfare to 1049-acre Teal Lake; they are the 'Quiet Lakes;' lakes with a 10mph speed limit, no wake within 100' of the shoreline, and no motorized watersports to include: no water-skiing, jet-sking, or tubing; these activities are not allowed at any time.

This summer was our 5th year in a row renting Our Great Escape - everyone in the family refers to it as our favorite week of the year. We have 6 adults and 6 kids (ages 4-13) in our group and it is the perfect summer vacation home for us. The house is equipped with absolutely everything we need, and more. There is plenty of space, especially in the main areas and the kitchen, so even though we always seem to have great weather, the house is perfectly comfortable with a big group even on rainy days. The screen porch is perfect for relaxing, reading, enjoying morning coffee and we all spent a lot of time just watching the view of the lake from the porch. One feature of this property is that the kids can swim right from shore, without having to swim from a dock, which seems to be the case for most of the other properties on the lake. The fact that the kids can swim right from shore has made a huge difference for us since we have several small children in our group. We spend most days just swimming, fishing, and hanging out and enjoying the peace and quiet of the lake. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous - either sitting looking at the lake or walking/hiking in the area. One highlight for us every year is the bike ride we take on the roads leading to the house - highly recommend bringing road bikes for the adults that have them! The owner of the house is so attentive and responsive and does everything he possibly can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The house is always clean and property very well kept and each year the owner works hard to make improvements and upgrades to the house so it is as comfortable as we remember year after year. I really can't recommend this property highly enough!!!
This was our fourth visit to Our Great Escape and it never, ever disappoints. We call it heaven on earth because not only is it beautiful, it's tranquil, perfectly maintained, spacious, and a lot of fun. We rented a pontoon from Wilson's Lodge down the road and used it all week. We boated, fished, photographed, swam, went into town (always fun!), hiked, strolled, cooked outdoors, watched the sunsets and the stars and relaxed. This year we experienced some very special moments: the breathtakingly beautiful northern lights!!!, a visit one evening from a doe, who stood in front of us as calm as a cat, gatherings of 7 to 9 loons, practicing feeding and socialization skills before migration, eagles and even some leftover great blue herons. One of the perfect features of this gorgeous cabin is a large and comfy screened porch, where we practically lived whenever we were in the house. We will look forward to returning next year and as long as we possibly can. This is indeed a little piece of "heaven on earth!"
Our third year at OGE was the best yet. Super fun times with three generations of Family and celebration o two Summer Birthdays. Found a back door up to the town of Cable for Grocery and nice restaurant. Hope to rent a pontoon to see the rest of the Lake next year.Great July weather. Only one tough weather time during one night that knocked out power and Satellite TV. The Generator kicked in immediately and a service tech, thanks to the owner, fixed the Dish by the end of the day.
Whole unit is clean and well maintained. Very wonderful attention paid by the owner for any need. We will be back for year four!!!!
This was our first time staying at "Our Great Escape" and we can't wait to book again next year! This place is everything as advertised and more. The family memories we created during our stay are truly priceless. The home is located in a breathtakingly beautiful National Forest. We "ooed" and "ahhd" on the drive on upper A to get there. My 6 year old daughter thought it looked like scenery right out of a fairy tale. Upon arrival, we were just blown away by the home and the lake! The place is well maintained and the layout is phenomenal for large groups! We had a total of 10 people staying there and it never seemed crowded. The kitchen is a dream for a groups of any size and we shared family meals every day on the large dining table. The screened in porch was the adult favorite for morning coffees and afternoon/evening cocktails. The kids loved the beach and dock for swimming and fishing. We were lucky to be staying here during a solar storm and were able to view the Northern Lights! The best seat in the house for watching the Northern skies? The bench at the end of the dock of course! A truly remarkable moment that everyone is still talking about. I highly recommend renting a pontoon from Wilson Bay Lodge. We used it to fish, swim, and to just "tootle" around the lake. We enjoyed going down the thoroughfare to Teal Lake and the fishing on Teal was just as great as our Lost Land Lake!
We cannot wait for next year and can't thank Rob enough for sharing this gem with us!
This was our first time staying at "Our Great Escape" and our first visit to Lost Land Lake. The house was the perfect accommodations for our large group. There were a total of 12 of us, ages 8-76, and the spacious, open concept home allowed us to spend quality time together and never feel crowded! The home is so well maintained, comfortable and fully stocked for cooking, relaxing, playing games and winding down in the evening for a family movie night. The kitchen is a dream to cook in--especially since you have a lovely view of the lake and yard as you prepare meals! There is a large table and island for dining at, which allowed our large group to have a big family dinner each night--as we watched the lake and sunset of course! The backyard gently slopes down to the lake, dock and a beach area and there were more then enough comfy beach chairs and loungers for us all to relax, watch the young ones swim and fish and enjoy the peace and quiet of this pristine lake. My mother does not get around very well and it was a priority for me to find a house that had very easy access to the lake and close enough that she could watch all of the festivities. I can't imagine a property that would have better lake access, proximity and yard space than "Our Great Escape" -it was the perfect spot for our age range of guests. The sandy beach was awesome for swimming and wading in--my dad enjoyed using this shallow area to get in and out of his canoe with ease! We rented a very nice pontoon boat from Wilson Bay Lodge and went out on the water every day--except one that was a bit rainy. The lake is so clean and quiet for swimming in and of course the teenagers and little ones enjoyed fishing! Mom and I enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened in porch and were treated to a visit from a heron nearly every morning--often it would land in the yard and walk out on the dock! The screened in porch was the favorite spot of my mom who was out there every morning and evening taking in the beauty of it all. Rob is very thorough in all of his information which helped us prepare for the trip and he keeps his property in excellent condition with detailed info. to make guests feel right at home and at ease in using all aspects of this beautiful home and property. We loved our time at "Our Great Escape!"
This was our 2nd time staying at "Our Great Escape". Three generations of my family (ages 70 - 15) gathered to rest, relax and enjoy the beauty of the Northwoods and that we did! The first couple of days were chilly and rainy. The power went out but within seconds, there was a seamless transition back to normal as the back-up generator kicked in. Once power was restored, the generator turned itself off. I think I want one of these for my home! Anyways, the rest of our week was great. Every morning we watch a momma duck and her ducklings swim the length of the lake frontage. My 18 year old son fished sun up til sundown. We rented boats and motors from Wilson Bay Lodge...nice new boats and motors. In my opinion, the best room in the house is the screened in porch. Plenty of seating for 8-10 people and AWESOME sunsets! There were 11 of us in all and the house was spacious enough for everyone. Rob has done a great job of making you feel right at "home".
