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

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!

Owner's Response: Our visitors comfort is our priority. Glad you enjoyed the lakes! With the torrential rains the launch area has been washed out. We hope to get it fixed soon!

Awesome cabin with stunning views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

As in past stays at Pinecone Retreat, everything was "top notch." The cabin is very well maintained and tastefully decorated from top to bottom. Sitting out on the spacious deck and watching a storm blow by was the perfect getaway from my everyday life. Thank you!

Perfect in Winter or Summer

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us! This was the perfect place for our weekend getaway! It is so close to town - gas, groceries, bars, food! We went hiking in Trego, skiing at Christie Mountain, celebrated New Year's at the Spider Saloon! Everyone we met was so friendly!! We brought our lab, Willow - she loved tracking all the scents in the snow! It was fun to watch all the snowmobiles come up to the saloon - made us wish we had one! This would also be a lovely stay in the summer, especially being right on the lake! The house is wonderfully decorated, spacious, clean, has everything you need and you wouldn't know pets are allowed!! Thank you for the bottle of wine! We may be back to celebrate 2018!!

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Wayne and Jean's Pine Cone Retreat and we had a fabulous week! From sitting on the front deck watching and listening to the loons, to fishing off our boat and swimming off the dock...we couldn't have asked for a better time. The weather was absolutely perfect the week we were there with temps in the upper 70's to low 80's. It was beautiful!

The house is fully furnished with everything you could possibly want. There is plenty of room to spread out and do a variety of things. We spent a lot of our time on the deck just chilling as it's so relaxing. We watched t.v. as a family in the large area in the basement along with played some games on the table down there as well. There are a variety of games kept in the downstairs cupboards and our boys enjoyed those.

The highlight of our trip this year was being able to get to all 5 of the lakes with our pontoon! We did that on a couple of the days and fished in a few different lakes, but we found our best fishing to be right in Spider 1 were the cabin is located. We caught bluegills, crappies, bass and bullheads during our stay there. We saw a few Northern Pike, but we weren't able to land those. Maybe next year!

We enjoyed our stay so much that we've already booked a week long stay for next July! We love it there!

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Pinecone Retreat was just what we needed! Very clean, comfortable sleeping and peaceful surroundings. We golfed at Tagalong Golf Course and took the paddleboat out a few times. Burger night at the saloon was awesome! We survived a violent storm and were without power for 12 hours, but all in all we had a wonderful time!
