About Pattie Montour

This property was purchased from my parents in 1995. It was built in the fifties to house a gift shop. The conversion to a personal retreat was completed over several years while living and working in Shawano.

We come here for a relaxing get a way from work and the technology we are required to keep up with all week. We enjoy many of the local restaurants, the bike trails and the woodland surroundings.The local chamber has a schedule of art and musical events throughout the summer that can meet every taste.

Why Pattie Montour chose Wisconsin

Shawano Lake Rendezvous is very easy to find. There is parking on only one side of the street, this helps keep local traffic moving, while still allowing street parking for an extra vehicle.

We love the variety of activities in the area. Boating and all sorts of water sports. The local festivals are a great way to see the small towns around Shawano.

The Shawano Chamber of Commerce has a complete listing of activities and events through the county. There is something for everyone; check to see what is going on while you are here.

We love to take a walk down to the marina in the morning just to get a feel for what is going on in the neighborhood. Always keep an eye open for wildlife along the way. If you are quiet and early. It is a very easy walk.

If you want something a bit more active try bike riding around the lake if you use the sidestreets it is approximately 28 miles. There are several choices in Cecil to stop for breakfast. I reccommend doing this early as traffic can be heavy later in the day.

In the evening there are so many great local restaurants and traditional Wisconsin Supper Clubs. It is a difficult decision to stay in and cook together or go out and try the nights special or a long time favorite.

We sometimes can't decide how to spend our days. It is 35 miles to the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, the practice field and Lambeau Stadium. During the football season we enjoy the pregame tailgate parties and will sometimes go... even if we dont have tickets for the game.

Rent a boat or bring your own. Relax on the beach, bring floating rafts for the shallow swimming area. If you forgot yours they are available at several local stores. Whitewater rafting on the Wolf River in Memoninee and Langlade Counties. It can be a photographers dream to watch kayaks challenge the rapids. Be an active adventurer or a spectator. It is really all up to you.

What makes this cottage unique

The back yard is shady and quiet. A large attached deck is a comfortable place to read or enjoy a meal. There is a brick patio with a gas grill. It is wonderful to spend a little quiet time and just observe the stars in the night sky.

Within walking distance of a Supper Club, Sports Bar, and a local tavern. Your choice of appetizers, a full meal or just a sandwich.

We offer Corporate Rentals for a minimum stay of

31 days. Furnished rental with all utilities included, Lawn care and snow plowing provided. Application, references and deposit required.

great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was very neat and clean and well stocked with necessities. It is just a short drive to the county park which has a nice beach and other outdoor activities and to downtown. It had adequate parking, a nice deck to relax on, a nice big kitchen and comfortable recliners we lounged on in the living room. Patti was very prompt with communication and easy to work with. I would recommend this cottage to others and would stay here again if we are ever back in the Shawano area.

Great cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We are from Minnesota, we were going to a Packers game. This was a perfect location for us, so that we didn't have to pay a leg and an arm for a hotel room. This cabin was clean and had a lot of space. I would love to come back to this cabin during a future game, or just to stay there for the weekend!
