About Greg and Nancy Krings

This is our vacation home which we enjoy sharing with our guests and hope they enjoy as much as we do. We have been renting vacation homes for 20 years.

Greg and Nancy Krings purchased this house in 2005

Why Greg and Nancy Krings chose Northern Wisconsin

We love the serenity the house provides with the beautiful views out of the porch, feel the everyday stress leave you as you arrive and enjoy your stay. Just what the doctor ordered. The great fishing and swimming and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore make for a great vacation in our quiet little piece of heaven.

What makes this house unique

Come and enjoy the eagles landing right out your front door in the treetops on the shoreline. Two years ago a young bull moose walked past the lakeside porch at 7:30 in the morning for our guests to enjoy and boy did they. There are pictures in the drawer. The views are beautiful from the 4 season porch.

Relaxing and what we were looking for and needed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the property to go up north and go snowmobiling. The property was easy to find, clean and what we were looking for. Relaxing and quiet. The trail is right down the road from the house. There are bars/ restaurants within snowmobile riding distance. It was definitely convenient and a nice place to stay if you're going to go up north to go snowmobiling.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we wanted - water, peace and quiet, yet close enough to town to grab some food and some neat shopping. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! Morning coffee looking at the mist on the lake took all of our breath away. Kitchen had everything we needed, except a plain rubber spatula, but we certainly made do! We'll be back with the family!

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us--it had everything we needed and then some: comfortable beds and furniture, great kitchen, plenty of space for all the gear and we LOVED the four-season room for early morning breakfasts, dinner breaks and evening sunsets--the lake view is amazing!

The pontoon rental was a definite plus!!

Thank you for allowing dogs--our two had a blast "diving" for rocks in the shallows, sniffing around the huge front yard and relaxing on the pontoon!

We would definitely love to return--thank you.

Our experience with this rental was excellent. The owners were willing to work with us on our varied schedule, the property was exactly what the pictures showed, and it was clean and well-maintained. We hope to return to this beautiful area of northern Wisconsin. And the value of what we received in the rental was wonderful.

Winter Weekend City Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs couldn't say enough wonderful things about the Krings Vacation home. They were super accommodating (we reserved the home less than 24 hours in advanced) and very responsive via email. Our GPS failed us on our way to the cabin and we arrived after dark and had a lot of trouble finding the place, but we were able to call the owners and they were able to direct us there in no time and stayed on the phone till we arrived. [In general, the home is not difficult to find at all but in snowy and dark conditions for two city people generally dependent on their GPS, it was when our GPS led us astray]

Although our stay was short it was wonderful. They have a great kitchen with everything you would need and we stayed in the entire weekend and cooked all our meals there. The home is about 25 minutes away from Eagle River where we stopped at Trigs to stock up on groceries. We had hoped to snow shoe or cross country ski while we were there but there wasn't enough snow, however we had a great time playing out on the frozen lake with our dogs, playing foosball, and reading by the fire or in the four season porch. Also, the people who live nearby are also super friendly, as we got invited to a local gathering out on the ice. And you simply can not beat the views of the lake from the windows of the four season porch!

We can't wait to come and stay again with our dogs!
