Perfect for Vacationing Families

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, this home is everything a vacationing family could hope for...and more. Traveling from the Chicago area to relax in the northwoods and to see the fall colors, we noticed the landscape becoming more and more beautiful as we journeyed north. Our jaws dropped as we turned onto this home's tree-lined, curving street and we were surrounded by the colors of fall. It was stunning! Truly, the photos here don't do it justice...it's far more beautiful than we even imagined.

The home was beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, and stocked with the comforts of home. The view of the lake was breathtaking in the fall, and the home is ideally situated in a quiet location. The expansive lawn provides space for families to gather, play, stargaze, or relax by the lakeside firepit. A nearby marina (BoatSport on Route 70) has pontoons available at a very reasonable rental rate, so we enjoyed an unusually warm fall afternoon exploring the chain of lakes.

We're so very grateful to the owners for sharing their home with us. We found ourselves sad to leave after our extended weekend here, and thinking about when we'd be able to return. This place is a gem, and this was a trip we'll remember for years to come.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We met family for a mini reunion and this home exceeded our expectations! The home is absolutely beautiful, cozy and spacious. We never felt crowded. A home away from home. A great place to reconnect with family and friends and so much to do in the surrounding towns. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we were able to fish and pontoon at some old favorite fishing spots. A vacation we'll never forget! We'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you to our hosts.

Log Home

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is awesome! It had all the room necessary for the ten of us. The grandkids ranging in age from 6 to 16 all loved it, and the adults did as well. The lake front and large yard are great for kids and they actually played games like stick ball that did not require electronics or wi fi We would love to come back!

Outstanding getaway Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay at the Cabin, 3 winter stays, 2 in the fall. We love it. The cabin is always exceptionally clean, very roomy, great fireplaces, close to Eagle River - just a great place for family and friends to gather and enjoy a great mix of wonderful accommodation and great outdoors. I hesitate to complete a review because we want to keep this place to ourselves. (Although we can't do that as we don't own it- darn it!)

Beautiful Family Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of this log home was "absolutely beautiful" and it only got better from there. The accommodations for our 2 families (10 adults) was perfect. The home had everything we needed!! Each and everyday was a day in a "Winter Wonderland". The temperature was around 0 everyday, so we enjoyed the outdoors with building snowmen, tobogganing, skating and long walks in the beautiful array of tall pine trees. The view from the great room was breathtaking, and everyday we took time to sit back and enjoy...then every evening we loved the warmth of the fireplace reminiscing with all! The game room was enjoyed each and everyday, not a day went by without the pool table being played!! We utilized the BBQ several times for delicious meals, and one thing we truly enjoyed was being able to all sit around the round table together! The town of Eagle River is very close and a trip for shopping was quick. Us girls loved walking the business strip of town and meeting the shop owners..very nice people. We have made memories of a beautiful Christmas holiday in this gorgeous home that will stay with us forever...we hope we will have the opportunity to experience it again!

Thank you Howard for sharing your home, our 12 hour drive was well worth it. It couldn't have been more perfect!!

Awesome Loghome Retreat Time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Eagle River was great. The weather was somewhat cold, but we nonetheless enjoyed Thursday out on the lake and at the dock with our rental pontoon boat. Friday morning we had a fishing tour and all of us caught some walleye. Unfortunately too small to keep, but lot's of fun.

Friday afternoon was rainy, but thanks to this great house we never got bored (think fireplaces, pool billiard, foosball, etc.). We made good use of the Weber grills on the patio and simply enjoyed the awesome home all around. Everything was as promised or better, and there is absolutely nothing we could ask to improve: WLAN, kitchen supplies, garage with remote control, firewood, spare gas tank for BBQ, etc. - everything there, perfect.

Also, the caretaker is doing a wonderful job and life is easy when getting to the log home retreat.

Congratulations on this exceptional house up-North, the location and everything around is superb!

Thanks for renting it out to us, I would love to be back with my family some time.
