About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

The Pinecone Cottage is a northwoods getaway located on a beautiful chain of twenty eight lakes in and around Three Lakes, WI. A stand-alone house just feet from the shores of Deer Lake with your own private dock. This is your place to relax and play, to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The home is spacious enough to visit with family and friends, or cozy enough for an intimate retreat. The Pinecone Cottage has three bedrooms and three baths, plus two sleeper sofas to accommodate up to nine people. Tiled slate floors line the foyer, kitchen and porch, with plush carpeting adding comfort to the living areas and bedrooms. A large, wrap-around deck faces the lake, and expansive windows bring the outdoors in to the dramatic two-story great room. Each of the bedrooms has access to a full bath, while the master bedroom has its own luxury bath with separate whirlpool tub, king-size bed and large walk-in closet

Each season in the Three Lakes area of Northern Wisconsin has it individual charms. Spring and Fall are peaceful, reflective times that can be punctuated with amazing beauty. Summer and winter are picturesque times of fun and excitement. There are seemingly endless lakes to explore, while enjoying fishing, skiing, tubing, sailing, swimming or simply boating and relaxing. For your convenience there is a boat slip in front of the house that is for the exclusive use of our guests. Close by are excellent trails for hiking, biking, Nordic skiing, and of course, winter’s favorite sport, snowmobiling. Nearby Eagle River hails itself as the snowmobiling capital of the world, and groomed trails can be accessed right from Northenaire that can take you hundreds of miles through pristine forests to dozens of restaurants and pubs.

Beautiful two story windows bringing in the majestic pines with Great Lake views!!!!!

Pine Cone Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Pine Cone Cottage was a glorious stay for my family, friends, and I. The snowmobile trails were well groomed and had plenty of snow. Michigan trails were very accessible and close as well. The local bars and restaurants were very appreciative and welcoming. The Pine Cone Cottage is a really modern well equipped home with a beautiful stone, wood-burning fireplace. Incredible views out the windows as the home is set in an evergreen woods. A Winter Wonderland when we woke to beautiful frost mornings! The house was very well equipped for entertaining our guests and included a popcorn pooper, blender, 2 crock pots, single cup coffee brewer plus coffee pot and many serving pieces. For anyone who loves a modern cabin/home that is clean and very spacious I would recommend this as a great value! I plan on coming back again this fall for a great Girls Get-a-Way.

Our stay at the Pinecone cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for our family of 7 to stay in and to host a reherseal dinner for our son's wedding in Three Lakes. We had 30 at the dinner and with two rented tables and what furniture was there had enough to seat everyone. The kitchen was very well equiped and we were able to cook all the food there. My kids, 33,31,29 and 26 really enjoyed the firepit. We loved the view of the lake and being able to sit out on the deck. This is a lovely home and very comfortable. We did however encounter a few problems. There is only one table and it has two chairs and two benches to seat 6 or maybe 7 if you are small. When we arrived one of the benches was broken and in the closet. We had to go to the hardware store and buy parts and fix it ourselves as we really needed the seating. Also the screen on the door to the deck was all torn out and so you had to keep it closed to keep the flies out. I have never seen so many flies in my life! They were everywhere and very irratating! I feel that for the price the home should have been maintained better. Maybe it was the renters right before us that broke the bench and tore out the screen but those things should have been fixed before we got there. Bill was very nice through the whole process but was unable to take care of either of those two problems. We both called and texted the caretaker but never got any response. This is a great property but needs to be maintained a little better.

Owner's Response: Nancie, Thanks for your comments . The bench and screen must have happened just before you arrived. We had not had any complaints regarding those issues. With such a short notice regarding these maintenance issues we apologize for not being able to address those things while you were there. We are working on these now and will be corrected very soon. Glad your group enjoyed the home. We wish the newly weds a happy healthful marriage.

Perfect place. Lovely atmosphere, relaxing views, all amenities and conveniences have been thought of and are supplied. The bathrooms and showers are nicer than my own. I've stayed with friends twice and have a fantastic week both times. It's quiet, there is solitude and also close to town. The fishing is also very good. I've caught muskies every year, and even off the dock. It's the perfect balance of luxury and charm in the northwoods.

Bill was very helpful, thanks again.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Pinecone "Cottage". This home is so much more than a cottage! We had three couples and it worked out great for us. The fire pit area is so wonderful and peaceful and fishing on the shoreline off of the dock was nice too. We had the kayaks out every day and biked from Three Lakes to Eagle River and back on the wonderful Three Lakes Trail. We are definitely coming back next year. Thanks so Sue for making our stay wonderful!

Happy Repeat Renters

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second annual stay at the Pinecone Cottage and enjoyed it again. The house is in great shape, and Sue the local property manager does a great job making sure you are happy. It is a nice combination of stand alone house by the water, with the larger resort a short walk away for the pool, hot tub, volleyball court and wi-fi. The swimming area off the dock has a few weedy areas, but plenty of open sandy area too. We rent a boat from a marina on the chain, and the dock is very convenient to the house. Kitchen area is huge, and great for group cooking. The lakes are never very busy, and either is the resort, so don't worry about a lot of neighbors or noise.

Only things on the wish list would be wi-fi in the house instead of walking to the resort, and since the closets are gigantic, I think they could have used some of the space for an extra bedroom.

Would definitely recommend for a larger family(s) looking for a very nice, modern house to rent on the lake.

Unexpected LUXURY!

  • 5 of 5

From the first exterior view to the moment you step in the front door, this is so much more than just a "cottage". It's beautifully decorated, the bedrooms are fabulous, the kitchen meets all your needs, and the setting on Deer Lake is very cozy. Plus, the managers, Sue and Mal make you feel right at home. In fact, we became friends. The whole area around Three Lakes and Eagle River is such a delight to explore! Cranberries were at their peak in late September--a great treat to take a tour! Highly recommended for a truly relaxing getaway.
