About Steven Larson

This home was built twelve years ago as the dream summer getaway cottage for Dave and Eleanor Swanson. Dave Swanson's father built the resort and it had always been Dave's dream to retire and have a place to come home to one day. He and Eleanor hand-built this gorgeous home and filled the present-day Gingerbread resort with their fun, hard work, and wonderful presence. In 2012 they were no longer able to leave their home in California to come out seasonally. They leave behind a beautiful masterpiece and will be greatly missed. Currently Dave's sister and husband, John and Esther Larson, who live on the resort, and ran the business for several decades, own the home and the home's rental is managed by son Steven Larson and wife Wendy, who are the current managers of Camp Lake Resort

Great for ATV'ng!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in September 2014 - and, it was just a great time! The cabin is very nicely done - comes complete with everything you will need for your stay. Also, it is nicely furnished and just a very nice and cozy place to spend a week. And, the owners were most accommodating . . . . . meeting us when we got there with a nice bottle of wine!

We brought our two ATV's with us. You can ride your ATV's right down the driveway and onto the local ATV approved rural roads. It is about 2 miles from the cabin to the Nicolet National Forest ATV trails - really not that far. We had a great time on the trails.

There are several very nice supper clubs in the area. Also, there is a very good grocery store within a few miles. We had a great time and would stay there again!

Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was outstanding for our family's vacation - a week of exploring Wisconisn's ATV trails. Everything as advertised and more! Very spacious and superbly maintained-made coming back every evening very relaxing! It was like being at home! The property had many amenities to explore from its very own garden, a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, its own lake right out back as well as the friendly cows in the nearby pasture. Definitely a place we would rent again! Thanks Wendy & Steve for your awesome hospitality and sharing your awesome property!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, pristine, private. We have been coming to Camp Lake Resort for 40+ years, but this is the first time we stayed at Pine Haven. Cabin is large enough to have the whole family together. Well kept, and the owners are more than willing to help with any needs. Will definitely come again and again!

Atlanta, Georgia

An absolutely amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 4th at Pine Haven during our annual trip to Lakewood from the Atlanta, GA area. We love coming to the northwoods at this time of year since the weather is refreshingly cool (compared to Atlanta) and this cabin is exactly what we were looking for. The craftsmanship of the home is beautiful and comfortable and there was nothing nicer than sitting on the deck in the morning enjoying our coffee while the loons sang on the three adjacent lakes, the cows roamed the meadows in front of us, etc. In the evenings we enjoyed the firepit and listened to the's amazing how quiet and secluded you feel, while being only 10 minutes from the main town. The hosts were also wonderful, this cabin is part of a legendary resort in the area and the meticulous care that they take of the grounds is wonderful. When you stay here you have access to 4+ lakes and each one has rowboats and some have canoes and paddleboats that you can use. Our family also enjoyed the weekly hayride through the expansive 170 acres and although we had other plans and couldn't join them for dessert, we heard from other people that it is not to be missed! There is no better place to stay in the Lakewood/Mountain area!
