About Patience Rockey
I have enjoyed more than 68 summers on Rest Lake. From the woods, I gather mushrooms, blueberries, and raspberries (don't like blackberry picking because of the thorns) are among my favorite activities. Some of my favorite memories are of canoeing and camping on the local rivers - first with my parents and later with my own children.
Patience Rockey purchased this House in 1934
Why Patience Rockey chose Manitowish Waters
My grandmother purchased the property in 1934. It is has been the center of our family vacation life ever since.
What makes this House unique
It is only a short walk to the library where you can find an extensive collection of vacation reading or order a particular book. Next to the library is the Community Center host of weekly outdoor fairs and community dinners. There are tennis courses and children playgrounds.

Don & Lisa Kern
Thank You, Kerns for being such great guests. Look forward to seeing you again.
We really had a great time here! We were able to bring our dog, who just loves to swim, so we ALL got what we needed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The cabin had everything we needed and made for the perfect spot for us to decompress. Very pleased and would highly recommend to others.
Perfect house in a perfect spot!
We loved our stay at this wonderful log home! It exceeded our expectations! The large open living area was a perfect gathering spot for the 7 adults in our group. We used the fireplace several times as well as the outdoor fire pit. Loved having a pontoon boat available......the Manitowish Waters chain was fun to explore. We boated to the Sunday night concert in the park, a short ride away. Another great feature was using the top of the boat house to relax and enjoy the lake view. Excellent sandy beach, easily the best we have ever encountered at a lake rental. So much to love about this place. It really was perfect.!
Beautiful Rustic Up North Cabin
The only reason we rated 4 stars is a big one and we felt it's important for others to be aware that the Guest room and bunk room have only large screened windows. That made for very cold sleeping for a couple of nights and for some guests, it's just too "rustic" for their liking or comfort. Otherwise, the cabin was built with lovely vintage decor and construction and we enjoyed the boat, boathouse deck and sandy bottom lake. The water was crystal clear and the use of the boats was an amazing amenity that we took advantage of on most days. The owners are accommodating and kind and we appreciated very much having our dogs there to enjoy the swimming as well. If you are looking for an authentic "Up North" camp-like experience, this is your cabin!
Perfect for our honeymoon!
My bride and I rented this cabin for the week following our wedding. We live in Sheboygan, WI and planned a wedding in the north woods of Wisconsin at a resort. After our time at the resort we wanted to get away from people/crowds for our honeymoon and this place was perfect. The log cabin is an original 1930s cabin but but with all necessary modern amenities. The views from the main bedroom or the porch overlooking Rest Lake are beautiful. Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the boathouse porch. We took advantage of the use of the pontoon boat to get to other lakes on this 10 lake chain of lakes. And we took the canoe out to an island for a picnic. My bride and I are also avid bicyclists and this place is perfect for a bicycling fan. There is a new blacktop bike trail that begins at the end of the road and this trail is extensive. We rode it from Manitowish Waters to Boulder Junction and then on to Sayner. Very scenic. I know the trail connects to St. Germain too, but we had reached our max at that point. The towns of Manitowish Waters and Boulder Junction are surprisingly fun. We found some great supper clubs and taverns (Little Bohemia, Blue Bayou, White Oak Grill, the Pea Patch, Aqualand Ale House, Smokeys). Aqualand has a great tap beer list and White Oak was very impressive for fine dining. There were also some great shops in Boulder Junction for keepsakes from the north woods. This place made us so comfortable and we had so many things to do that we actually went the whole week without checking our phones or e-mails. Oh, another thing that surprised me was the sandy bottom of the lake immediately in front of the cabin. Great for swimming. No seaweed. This place was great for us and I could imagine it being great for couples with kids too. The hosts were also great. They live next door to this cabin so they are available for information or help if necessary. But they also had the decency not to interrupt us during our vacation. Great people, great cabin, and great vacation.
Perfect Northwoods family vacation
My husband and I rented the 1930s log cabin for a family vacation, including our young adult children and their significant others, ages 17-30. We wanted to spend time together and have a scenic place on the water to hang out and this was a great property to do so! We truly appreciated being able to bring our little dog, too! The cabin has a great room feeling with a lot of space and charm; the 7 of us were comfortable. We used the boats every day--pontoon, fishing boat, and canoes--what a bonus! The Manitowish lake chain is gorgeous, clear water, good fishing, and not crowded! We have been to Eagle River, Minocqua and St Germain and this location is our favorite! We prepared almost all of our own meals at the cabin, used the BBQ grill, fireplace, played board games, read books, and enjoyed seeing/hearing all the wildlife including eagles and loons. We did some shopping in town, including getting ice cream, coffee shop, and went to Little Bohemia one night for dinner/fish fry. Patience and Charlie, the owners, live next door and are available if you need anything and are gracious hosts. We loved it!
