Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jon:

Your photos are excellent. It is just so nice there the pictures could never show that. Everything is so well thought out, such as bedding, dishes, glassware and decor matching. So many cottages are just thrown together, as if the people that own them just put things they don't want anymore in them. This place truly feels like home. Yes you may use are comments. Just one question for next summer do you rent by the week only or could someone pay for a couple extra days if they wanted to.

Thanks again

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful lake house. It had everything we needed and it was perfect!! We loved the use of the fishing boat and even caught a few fish!! The house was very clean and comfortable!! We loved having a washer and dryer too!! We took our bikes and were able to enjoy the scenic rides on both the roads and the paved trails!! We also enjoyed all of the wildlife that we saw right in the back yard. We will definitely be back next year!!

Close to recreation!

  • 4 of 5

Sunset Bay Retreat was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The weather didn't cooperate during our stay for much time on the lake, but we truly enjoyed the wildlife that was on/in the water right in front of the cabin: herons, ducks, geese, deer, etc. The setting was quite private - yet surprising close to a wide array of small communities. Vilas County has GREAT bike & hike trails. As the weather was cool during our stay, we biked and hiked each day - the location is perfect for anyone who is a outdoor sports enthusiast. We would definitely rent Sunset Bay Retreat again.

Book it!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home on Lost Lake very clean and inviting. We got plenty of use out of the fishing boat and fire pit. We enjoyed watching the eagles, ducks, bunny's, frogs, turtles and chipmunks while relaxing by the lake. If you have the time, take the 60mile ride to Bond Falls in Michigan it was beautiful. Fishing was not as good as we hoped just our luck however the kids did catch plenty of tiny blue gills and baby small mouth bass off the dock. I would definitely stay in or recommend this home again. Perfect little private spot on the lake. Linens and beds were very comfortable slept great every night. Plenty of cookware and utensils. I would love to see the bushes near the pier trimmed back a little. Nice little baseball field and fishing pier just around the block. Donuts at The Saint Germain Bakery attached to Sentry Grocery Store are fantastic and just a quick 10 minute ride. Breakfast at D J’ S Northwoods Family Restaurant was so delicious we went back 3x's. I researched rental houses for months I'm so glad I decided on this one. It did not disappoint. Jon was a pleasure to work with.
