About Jean Boatman

Jean Boatman, I am a vacation home owner along with my husband Wayne. My husband drives truck and I am an interior decorator/painter. We built and designied this cabin with comfort and up north decor in mind.

Jean Boatman purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Jean Boatman chose Northern Wisconsin

This home is for our enjoyment now and later when we retire. We had been managing a campground in this resort and love the area. There are so many great places to dine out & shop. We enjoy The Birchwood Cafe and Just Right On Main for dining and shopping. We decided to build when the new lots became available and were first to get the best veiw of the lake.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the people who come into this area. There is fishing, Atv trails and many nice shopping and entertaining things to do in the area. There is snowmobile trails in the winter and ice fishing or just relaxing in this comfy cabin. I also designed the basement to be either a family game area or it can be transformed into a space for scrapbooking and other crafts for up to 8 people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Girls Weekend! 32* and 3" inches of snow. Our beer cans went for play ground equipment!

We had fun as always!

We Love the Pine Cone Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year in a row at the Pine Cone Retreat and we couldn't be happier with a place to "get away from it all."

This location has just about everything you could want: a beautiful deck to take in gorgeous views of the lake, a great paddle boat for use at the dock, plenty of room to spread out for everyone. It really is perfect!

While we were there, Wayne came up to replace the worn boards on the dock and raise it up a bit as the water is higher than normal due to all the rain we've gotten in Wisconsin this year. It was nice to have a "new" dock to use while we were there.

We're already planning our stay for next year! We just love it!

Very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Lake is beautiful. Too small for an inboard.

However there are many lakes within minutes for recreation.

Owner's Response: Glad to know you had a good time. Lakes are small but there is 5 lakes in the chain. Lakes 2, 3 and 4 have no cabins on them. The quiet and serenity is well worth the exploring of these lakes. The fishing is good too!

Nice Cabin, great fishing lake!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very clean and comfortable. We had a good time!

I would suggest putting some work into the dock., and boat landing.

Faster internet would also be nice (currently less than 1mbps), since there is no cell phone service available (Verizon or AT&T). But these are just small things, we would definitely return.

Owner's Response: We have had to raise our dock 3 times this year due to torrential rains. The boat landing suffered also due to too much rain. All is getting restored back as soon as possible. Our dock with the cabin is taken care of. We have Verizon and it does work at the cabin although you may have to be on the deck or in a certain spot in the house. The wi-fi has always been fine for us. I understand there was a storm that shut it down for a couple of hours. I have many that use the wifi and are satisfied with the speed.

We just left today- awesome family week, will definitely try to return

  • 5 of 5

We needed some quality family time with college kids and also grandparents. This place was just what we were looking for with something for everyone. Even though the weather wasn't perfect, we actually got pretty lucky a few of the days. Rain just gives more time for card playing anyway

always nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed again at this wonderful home for a week in June. The pictures do not do it justice! The yard is wonderful, our two labs loved running around and having the freedom. The row boat and paddle boats were great for the two teenagers we had with us - and the home was just what us "older" folks needed to relax! Can't say enough good about the place, and about Jean, the owner. The Spider Lake bar (which you can walk across the yard to) has good food, cold beer and good company. Can't wait to do it again - hope to be back next summer!!

Little Canada Feeling!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week stay at the Pinecone Retreat. This is a beautiful cabin set up that will make your stay very easy and comfortable.

My week stay was mainly for a fishing and we were very happy with the activity we experienced on all five of the lakes we had access too! Caught northern, bass, blue gill and crappie. My family and I are more catch and release so if you get the chance to experience this great home they are still in the lakes!

Boat launch at resort is not very desirable and recommend using the lake 5 launch if channels are open to you for return back to cabin.

I do plan on returning back to this home in the future and want to thank Jean the owner for letting us experience such a wonderful stay!
