A perfect time in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was VERY spacious and accommodating to our ice-fishing group. Plenty of space for everyone to take a load off after a long day and great access to Dam Lake only feet away. Conveniently located near Eagle River, Rainbow Flowage and St. Germain this rental has everything you may need to feel the comforts of home in a beautiful North Woods setting. I highly recommend Krings Retreat on Dam Lake!

Cabin on the Lake - I wouldn't rent during the winter.

  • 3 of 5

Overall this rental was nice. Large rooms and nice sitting areas. The Christmas decorations were a nice touch. Fireplace felt great when waking up in the AM. There is a hill before the cabin so if you didn't have 4 wheel drive you wouldn't make it back up due to ice on road. We had to park onto of the hill and walk down. The house is heated with hot water so we heard noises throughout the night, making it hard to sleep. Also we found mice droppings in a few of the beds. Great summer rental but I wouldn't rent again in the winter.

Owner's Response: We have been renting this house for 20 years and it's very important to us that our guests enjoy their stay. We stopped by a day after our guests arrived to check in and make sure things were going well. We got there and talked to one of them that told us how much they enjoyed the house. We always leave a note with our number so if there are concerns we can be reached. I can understand that if you aren't used to driving in the northwoods the driveway can look intimidating. We drove our Honda accord to the house and had no trouble getting up and down the driveway. We sanded it a couple days before so they wouldn't be a problem and as far as the noisy boiler if someone would have said something we could have removed the air from the system and gotten rid of the noise. I'm sorry they had issues but guests need to realize that if they don't let us know there's a problem we can't take care of it. We do the cleaning ourselves so if something isn't working properly we take care of it but not living there makes it hard to catch everything so we need our guests to let us know if something isn't working properly. Please at else leave a note so we know to fix it.

A great retreat for the family

  • 5 of 5

My family of three and my sister-in-law's family of six shared Krings' retreat over Labor Day weekend. We had more than enough room, everything we needed for cooking, comfy beds, and great space to play games or just chill. The rooms we comfortable and we liked the layout with two rooms near the kitchen side of the house, the lofted area with four beds, and the two rooms off the other side of the house. Everyone felt comfortable with their own space.

Thank you, Krings, for such a lovely, well-maintained home.

New Years eve on Dam Lake

  • 4 of 5

It was a great experience for us up north to find some ice and snow for New years eve fun.Greg as a owner was helpful with additional info about area and some ice fishing location.House itself was good enough for few nights sleep.Steps away from Dam lake for our convenience unfortunately there was not enough ice to explore whole lake so we managed to get only 4 pikes 5 perch and 1 walleye right in the bay.Not far from St.Germain or Eagle river towns.We found some safe ice for snowmobiling on the lake.

Quiet getaway in the beautiful northwoods

  • 5 of 5

We took a quick fall getaway to Kring's Retreat this past September. We loved the solitude of the house; located far enough from town to be peaceful and quiet, yet close enough to St. Germain, Eagle River and Minocqua to take advantage of restaurants and shops. I loved the set-up of the home, which really has two separate sleeping wings. This allows people with different interests (reading vs watching tv) to have their own peace and quiet! The house is decorated in an very quaint style, and the home well appointed. I loved the big clawfoot tub and beautiful bathroom!

The home is also situated very close to the water, giving you great water views from most rooms. The outdoor firepit sits right on the lake and is stocked with firewood, a great bonus. We were also able to fish from the pier where we caught a few perch, and take a spin in the canoe on a gorgeous fall day.

I would recommend the home for families or couples looking to get away from it all! Great hosts and well appointed home.

Wonderful Vacation

Had such a great stay at the Krings Retreat. It was large enough to accommodate our whole family. And the updates are so nice. My family will certainly be back next year!
