Northern Wisconsin House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Escape the hustle and enjoy the north woods as it is meant to be--with pristine, unspoiled vistas, peace, and quiet. We are located on a peninsula on the 200 acre Wind Pudding Lake and with 450 feet of frontage and water on three sides. Wind Pudding Lake is rated as one of the top 10 clearest lakes in Wisconsin by the U. of Wisconsin-Extension Program and Wisconsin has 15,000 lakes. Our house is situated just 60 feet for the shore and commands panoramic 180 degree views.

You will see no neighbors and and have this virtually undeveloped lake for yourself! This lake has limited public access, no resorts, so you can enjoy the serenity. The lake is a beautiful combination of open water with 34 foot depths and areas of lily pads and sedge grasses that attracts a variety of birds and fish. The lake front is unspoiled and teeming with wildlife.

If you are looking to water ski, use jet skis, motor boat, our lake is not where you would want to vacation. If, however, you wish to have peaceful, relaxing vacation with no noise and complete privacy (there are no neighbors in sight), where you can swim, enjoy the eagles nesting on the nearby island, do a little canoeing, fish for something other than trophy fish, we can't be beat.

This property is also available for purchase. If you purchase, rental price up to $1400 will be deducted from purchase price.

Wonderful Fall Get Away!!

  • 5 of 5

This home tucked away in the woods was so beautiful and relaxing. The kitchen is very well stocked and the views are gorgeous. We were there during peak color and it was amazing. Very well maintained and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was especially wonderful to work with and I would recommend this home rental to everyone.

This turned out to be one of the best vacations. The house was beautiful, the pictures online do not do it justice. We were very impressed with how well stocked it was. This house had everything. And the view was amazing. There are so many windows to look out of, and you basically have a private lake. We did try to ice fish and didn't catch anything but we didn't mind it was still a good time. The minocqua winter park is near by also and that was a lot of fun as well. We will definitely be staying here again. And the owner was nice to work with, and responded very quickly to all my questions. I dont have one bad thing to say about this house. Loved it.

Very Impressed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this property. The secluded location on the lake, wildlife, and condition of the house were very impressive. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we would need, including the deck overlooking the lake. The owner was very responsive to our questions. It was only a few minutes to Minaqua and everything that town has to offer. We strongly encourage anyone looking for a secluded, relaxing time on a great property, but yet a short drive to civilization to check out this rental property. You will not be disappointed.

VERY NICE but not the water

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very nice and clean. Nicely stocked with dishes, silverware, pans, 2 boats, life jackets firepit, chairs...etc. The outside of the house could use a good power washing and the landscape needs a little TLC. The dock is old & run down, needs some work, not a friendly place to hangout on. We were disappointed with the pond, the picture on the website is different than actual. There is a very little area to take the boat out, you can not get to the other side of the pond, very over grown with weeds and not good for swimming. BUT the cottage was immaculate and we still did enjoy our stay. If you do not care about the water, it's a perfect place to stay. Close to town for shopping and eating. Owner was very nice and responsive to emails.

Owner's Response: Read the other reviews submitted in July 2015. The lake is fine for swimming and the other side of the lake is accessible.

It was very quiet and peaceful. We used the canoe to go around the island and watch the eagles and other birds. Spent a lot of time just sitting on the dock watching for wildlife. It was a great home base to explore the area. The house was immaculate and well appointed. We had great wifi reception and no problem using our Verizon phones. Would love to stay longer in the future. Three days wasn't long enough.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

A small group of us stayed here and could not have had a more enjoyable time! The house was extremely clean and provided the most spectacular views. Words cannot even describe how wonderful it was waking up each morning with the sun shining in through the large windows and seeing the view of the lake.

Some of the best parts of our experience here: falling asleep with the windows open to the sound of NOTHING but nature (no people in sight), the boats we were so kindly able to access. We spent 80% of our time at the house fishing out on the water and exploring the lake. The lake is a little small, but don't be fooled by the reeds and grasses it is still perfectly accessible by canoe and we found there to still be about 4-5 ft. of CLEAR water below us and we ventured all over! Although we did not catch any large fish, we know they exist from others notes from previous stays. If you desire to catch large fish, patience will be your best friend!!

The fire pit was used each night as we played games, made dinner, and laughed. I often get depressed returning from vacation, but I have NEVER been so reluctant to return to reality. Truly a magical escape.

The owners were great to work with and I would recommend this home to anyone looking for that peaceful getaway.
