perfect for our purposes!

  • 5 of 5

The Whalen's were very kind, prompt and accommodating. We were in town for a wedding, and due to it being bear season and the size of the town, there were not many hotels in the area for us to stay at. So myself, and my immediate family stayed at the cabin. We mostly slept there, as we are the immediate family and of course were busy with wedding stuff, but there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep, hang out, and the setting (woods, lake) were beautiful.

The description of the property was accurate, we had a little hard time getting our GPS to find the exact address, but were able to find it better using the "Deer trail lodge" address.

Typical for a cabin in the woods, there were spider webs, and spiders, for most this is probably not a huge deal, I just have a huge fear of spiders! Ha, ha, I kept my eyes out and my family helped kill them as I pointed them out (about 9 in 3 days).

Because we are from pretty far away, our phone service was not great, so when I wanted to re-look up/remember the instructions for leaving I had a hard time connecting. I should have perhaps printed them before hand and brought a paper copy as I did not see free Wi-Fi available. (I saw in previous comments that the cost was unreasonable to maintain it, totally understanding). There isn't always a way to know if you will have service, so I will take a note in the future to print off this type of stuff, and if you could perhaps post/write something about this, it may help others!

My son wanted to watch one of his DVD's but the DVD on the player upstairs was missing the RCA cables. we used the cables from the play room in the basement and were able to get it to work. also the buttons on the actual DVD player did not work, but luckily there was a remote! so we just used that!

The Whalen's allowed me to check in a little early to drop things off prior to going and helping with wedding stuff (since I was traveling so far), that was greatly appreciated.

I would recommend this property to others, and I felt the cost was reasonable. We talked about coming back in the future to bring the family together at a time where we have more time to enjoy the cabin and the pontoon boat (we didn't get to even go down and see it as we were so busy!!)

We had our rehearsal dinner at The Spot Supper Club. The food was delicious! (prime rib!)

Thank you for everything!

Peaceful lake cabin in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cabin was inviting with plenty of sleeping space for our group. Living room area is not huge so we pulled in come chairs from the deck some nights while watching the Olympics. Some areas of the cabin in the basement level weren't totally finished which wasn't a huge issue, but it would improve the overall impression of the place. We did have an issue with mice during our visit and caught two with traps we bought in town. The huge deck with a large picnic table and grill was great. The only issue with the deck was the lower railing was quite a bit higher than the deck floor so our smaller dog could get through. This could be an issue with children too. The location was peaceful and the campfire area was great at night. The sky was dark and the stars were bright. It was a short walk to the dock and it was great to have use of the pontoon boat since several in our group wanted to fish. The lake was a bit weedy but they caught enough pan fish for a meal. Not many big game fish were caught, but several nice size bass were caught. The teenage boys in our group enjoyed the diving platform despite the weeds. The location was great and we went to Bayfield and took the ferry to Madeline Island and also hiked in the Amnicon Falls State Park which is a beautiful spot. We highly recommend the Delta Diner which is a short five minute trip. Be prepared for a long wait on the weekend as seating is very limited. Iron River while small, has just about everything one would need with a well stocked grocery store, laundromat and hardware store. Overall, we all had a great time and enjoyed the location. The price was reasonable for all that was included and Steve, the owner, was very responsive and pleasant to deal with when we called with questions. The detailed directions he emailed in advance were wonderful and made the place easy to find.

Owner's Response: Jo, We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks for the input on the mice as we had an exterminator go out and treat. Now that its getting cold the little buggers are always looking for a way in. We completely agree on your assessment of the Delta Diner and highly recommend it for anyone staying in the area. It was featured on Triple D which has increased the crowds substantially. We hope you stay with us again soon! Steve and Anna

nice cabin for the price

  • 3 of 5

wonderful place to stay for the price did find that the bathtub had hair in it and dust on the fire place that was easily visible , and my grandson pointed out the cobweb on the light in the dining room we also found duct tape on the window in the bedroom I didn't call to report it though. we had a party of 10 staying so it was busy and full but comfortable the kids had plenty of room to run outside. I enjoyed my morning walks with tons of peace and quite and even saw a deer on my walk. the pontoon boat was fun I wish I would of had more time to enjoy it. extremely peaceful lake would enjoy going again. I also appreciated the fact that it had enough hot water for all of the kids to take an evening shower along with a couple adults. I would suggest possibly getting someone in a little more often to clean the high sports and possibly do some maintenance it could use some paint and minor maintenance but for the price and location it was perfect.

Our Fall get away

  • 4 of 5

I can't say enough about Steve and Anna the owners. They couldn't have been more hospitable. Anything I asked for or about Steve was always quick with a same day reply. We had 6 adults and the bedrooms and bathrooms were great - nice sized and good sleeping beds ! But duct taping a screen in the one bedroom and on one of the sliding glass doors certainly was a tad tacky and then made them difficult to have open. Thank goodness for no mosquitos. The envelope for tipping the cleaning lady was a tad tacky as well as my daughter-in-law noticed cobwebs on the walls in rooms and the mouse trap on the counter of the kitchen sink was tasteless to say the least. We would have appreciated on the TV scheduling have the stations marked that could be received and would have liked numbers available locally where we could call if something went wrong. Being there was no WiFi - my daughter's laptop was useless - which in 2013 the WiFi was available. And a more comfortable couch in the living room would have been excellent. In our eyes, no comfortable furniture except for the beds. I hate writing bad things because I really enjoyed how great the owners were about working with us, but if they could just fix the screens and maybe the lady who cleans could use a leaf blower before each new family comes to blow away the needles on the deck and deck furniture before arrival - it would have been 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review and we always welcome input. Without hearing both what you liked and did not like, we have no way of knowing in ways to improve our guest experience. I have called our repair man to fix the screens. We have always welcomed dogs and sometimes they run through our screens. Guests often choose duct tape as a temporary fix, however don't always let us know of the problem. We have spoken to our cleaner about the importance of the cabins appearance as well as keeping us informed as to damage. I understand many may not feel comfortable to tip the cleaning lady and you certainly should not if you don't feel it warranted. We are one of the few places that do not charge a cleaning fee however we have allowed our cleaner to leave her tip envelopes if guests feel inclined. Free WiFi is no longer being offered as we could not continue the absorb the cost of data usage. We had one group use 50 gigs in two days. We did not want to increase our rates so we eliminated free WiFi as most people have internet capabilities on their phone including mobile hotspots that allow for laptop connectivity. We do not post numbers for contact in case of something going wrong as that's our job. As you experienced, we are very responsive and have the local connections to address any need that may arise. Thanks again for your comments and we hope you decide to stay with us again in the near future. Steve and Anna

Amazing cabin, definitely will use again!

  • 5 of 5

The place was quite large, clean, and comfortable. We didn't make it out to the dock or the boat, because we usually stopped right at the deck or the fire pit and that was good enough for us. No light pollution, so the stars were absolutely gorgeous. Also, MAKE SURE TO STOP AT THE DELTA DINER! Best breakfast I've had in a long time.

Wonderful cabin !

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so clean and in a great location. It was a bit of a walk to the boat but once on lake we spent hours swimming and fishing. Owners contacted me right away when I had questions and no problems with anything while at cabin. Kitchen was very nice and open, with all needed appliances and dishes/pans. Grill on deck very nice and space on deck perfect for the kids to sit and eat and enjoy the outdoors. Loved that we were able to bring our dogs! Thanks so much for the space to enjoy a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
