What makes this house unique

There's no doubt that time moves slower in Northern Wisconsin. It's amazing to be able to escape the city and enjoy someplace where the air is clean and you're surrounded by so much nature and wildlife. It doesn't hurt that this natural refuge is located close to a lake with only 8 homes.

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

This is such a beautiful place to stay. We loved how everything was decorated - the flooring, the great showers, the island and counter-tops. Our absolute favorite things were the peacefulness and quietude of the lake and the fact that there is no WiFi! What a great way to unplug! If you need the loft for sleeping quarters, you may want to bring a blow-up mattress, as the futon was very uncomfortable. The mattress in the master bedroom dips in the middle, but it could be because both my husband and I tend to turn towards the middle of the bed and we are used to a king sized bed. Overall, beautiful place. And Airbud is a great dog! :)

Great Place for Relaxation & Fishing

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8-10 loved the cabin! We were there over a long weekend in July. The cabin comes FULLY EQUIPPED - with everything you'd need including pots, pans, silverware, dishes, microwave, even an outdoor grill with charcoal & lighter. We are used to staying at a Wisconsin State Forest Service cabin that has next to nothing, so it was a very pleasant experience. Nice backyard big enough for frizbee or boche ball surrounded by red raspberries (we were there at the beginning of the season). The lake is just a 5 minute walk. Not great for swimming, but there's a dock for fishing or launching off on the paddleboat or the 2 kayaks provided by the cabin's owners. The owner was also amenable to allowing a couple of us to put up tents in the yard for those who preferred tenting, which worked out great, because the space may have been a little tight for all of us otherwise. Thanks, Josh & family!

Clean, comfortable, and fully stocked!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice, comfortable beds, plenty of room. Lots of extras, fully stocked kitchen and even all the firewood you would need. Wish the lake was a little closer (had a boat full of little ones) but VERY manageable, nonetheless. Would definitely recommend!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our time at the cabin! The house was beautiful and had all the amenities we needed. The property was big with lots of room for our dog and 2 year old to run and play. Phillips is a short drive away so was fun to go in to town and check things out there. The lake access was a short, easy walk from the house. With kayaks, a canoe, and a paddle boat we had lots to keep us occupied. The lake itself is very quiet and we really enjoyed our time there.

The Lake Escape

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Very pretty home out in the country. Quiet, good place to get away from everything. Fishing was excellent. Caught a keeper bass, several good size sunfish and bluegills. Water is very clear. Across the lake is a public access If you have your own boat. It is about 3 miles around to the spot. We ate a few nights at the Harbor View in town. Excellent food and atmosphere. We also attended the Czech-Slovic Fest which is the 3rd week of June annually. We highly recommend this vacation spot. Our hosts were most gracious.

Great stay for our family

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, beautiful home! This was ideal for our three small groups of family to stay: enough rooms for us to spread out a bit. Lake access was a few yards away but this is what we were looking for, especially with our small children. Will visit again!
