Presque Isle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Take time to enjoy this relaxing secluded area in Northern Wisconsin. This private cottage is located on Mermaid lake, a 60 acre no wake lake that has panfish, musky, bass and walleye. The cottage is a few steps from the 260 feet of private shoreline. There is a small fishing boat (with optional motor rental), a flat bottom boat, and 2 kayaks for your enjoyment. There is also a small sandy beach and floating raft for the kids to play.

This is a family friendly vacation with plenty of activities for all ages. Either sit back in the hammock and read a book, make smores on the campfire, or enjoy the loons on the lake. The closet is full of board games, craft projects, and you can always go fishing, swimming, biking, hiking, boating or snowmobiling. If you don't feel like cooking than enjoy to dining out at one of the grill/restaurant located within 10-15 minutes of the cottage. For shopping head to Boulder Junction, located about 15 miles from the property. This small quaint town is filled with unique shops, restaurants, and local artisan.

The cottage interior is highlighted with knotty pine, and authentic wood floors. The brand new kitchen is completely furnished, with stainless steel appliances. There is a sunporch, and a full size deck. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other bedroom has a bunk bed and a queen bed. There are also 2 twin beds downstairs in the full unfinished basement. The living room also has a pull out bed. A playpen is also stored in the closet. The interior is handicap accessible,with larger doorways, handrails in bathroom and an ease to get around with a wheelchair.

Why David DeVine chose Wisconsin

We have enjoyed the Northwoods for over 25 years. If its playing poker, building a campfire, or catching a load of fish; the memories are priceless. The pristine hemlocks and vast lakes bring you a sense of peace and remind you of the ultimate beauty in nature.

Winter Stay in the Northwoods

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is well equipped and gorgeous. Although we came in the winter, we were still able to enjoy the views of the frozen lake. The cabin itself is immaculate although for snowmobiles, it is a bit off the trail (2 miles). It is the perfect place for a weekend getaway and Dave and Teri were very informative and helpful when booking as we were trying to get a weekend with some snow! PI is a great town to easily access the Michigan Trail System as well as Wisconsin and more western trails. The bonus room is great to be able to come in and leave your snow gear without tromping through the house. With a little colder weather our stay would have been a perfect 10, but I give it a 9!

Our family of four were very impressed with the property, clean, bright, and best of all no signals! The location was quiet yet not isolated. We enjoyed the hiking, fishing, kayaking, and building sand castles. The Musky Day in Boulder Junction was a pleasant surprise. And, the Discovery Learning Center in Manatowish Waters was educational and the children enjoyed the free tours.

Our week in July at the DeVine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The lake was even better than the last time we were there with a new swimming dock and we really enjoyed floating in the net chairs while watching the children play.

The property was immaculate and we really enjoyed watching the wildlife this time. The birdfeeders were filled and the interaction between birds, squirrels and chipmunks was very entertaining as were the hummingbird feeders.

We enjoyed visiting several restaurants and the grocery in Mercer was very nice with a bakery and fresh fruits and vegetables, etc

peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

well maintained and high quality home. beautiful setting. No false advertising here. Well priced. The only thing I wish we had known is the long hilly very gravelly road access which made bike riding a challenge. Home and kitchen very well stocked. Would definitely return.
