Manitowish Waters Cabin Rental Photos and Description

I appreciate my HomeAway Travelers for another wonderful rental year in the books. Every available day that could be rented in ANGLER'S COZY COTTAGE was rented in 2016. 2017 is already filling up fast so be sure to get your reservation in quickly so that you can experience this amazing Up North Wisconsin cabin.

Also, I would appreciate being able to send you my photo file to hold for another time when you may be able to reserve this awesome Up North Wisconsin cabin or you may want to send this photo file on to your friends and family for their consideration of a 2016 or 2017 rental. SO LET ME HEAR FROM YOU! I may want to send you notification of a great rate if I were to have a Cancellation in the future.

This is an awesome cabin with amazing views and great amenities, not to mention being located CENTRALLY on the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes. Fall rentals are best known for their musky tournaments, Colorama, hiking and biking, nature seekers and cranberry festivals. Fall is a great time to visit Manitowish Waters!

Also, THIS VERY POPULAR AND WELL-RENTED CABIN MAY BE LISTED TO BE SOLD SO CONTACT THE OWNER NOW TO GET A MUCH BETTER DEAL BEFORE IT IS LISTED. We have owned this cabin for 17 years and enjoyed it tremendously; however, our children are now grown and living in other parts. I have been fully rented from May to October with no open dates for the past several years. I was always well rented before that but now HomeAway fills in the few weeks that I did not rent before 4 years ago. You can see that the income would offset a mortgage payment and make this cabin VERY AFFORDABLE. Imagine your very own Up North Wisconsin cabin with a separate storage building to hold your personal items until you can come back and enjoy your own cabin centrally located on the desirable and beautiful Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes. This cabin is a grandfathered resort rental cabin, assuring the ability to rent for years to come, if desired.

If my date is filled and you are staying in this area, I can arrange for my management to show you my cabin while you are in this vicinity. Also, I would like to send you a photo attachment of my cabin and the resort so that you can see the privacy, the beauty and the amazing natural setting for this cabin and this resort and hold these photos to consider for future vacations or possible purchase. You are going to love the time you spend in ANGLER'S COZY COTTAGE on the beautiful Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes. Easy rental system that does not take up a lot of your time. Be as involved as you want to be. ALL EXISTING RENTALS WILL BE GUARANTEED if the cabin were to enter into a sales contract.

ANGLER'S COZY COTTAGE is a seasonal 2-BR clean housekeeping fishing cabin in Hillcrest Resort in Manitowish Waters with a 25 ft setback on the most desired MANITOWISH CHAIN OF 10 LAKES (new building codes require 75 ft now). Seasonal cabin and rentals from May - Oct. ALL RENTALS GUARANTEED. This cabin is also listed with the Manitowish Waters Chamber of Commerce.

What makes this cabin stand out over ALL the rest in the Northern Wisconsin area????

**Angler's Cozy Cottage is perched on the crest of a hill only 25 feet from the Manitowish River, w/postcard view of the widening of Stone Lake to the South.

**The PRIVACY in this cabin is outstanding. This is the END cabin in a small resort. We have state-managed forests all around the resort and our own forests within the resort.

**The location of this cabin on the CHAIN is the most impressive amenity. This cabin is CENTRALLY LOCATED on the desirable Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes and all 10 lakes can be accessed from your pier, as well as restaurants, such as Little Bohemia, and Starr Beach and a gas station within a 1/2 mile, all on the water.

**The private L-shape pier directly in front of the cabin (see photo of pier, bench and newly built stairway) has a 6 ft bench at the end for fishing, relaxing and star gazing in the late evening with a cup of coffee in the morning and/or a glass of wine in the evening.

**A 2-way light switch for the dock and stairway have been installed for your convenience both on the outside cabin door and at the dock with 2 overhead lights, one lighting the dock and the other lighting the stairway.

**A manicured snowmobile Trail is only 1/8 of a mile from this cabin great for hiking and biking during the summer and you can go both very far south through several towns on this trail and all the way to the U.P. in Michigan going north and only a short walk from the cabin. In fact, we have state-managed forests all around the resort and trees between the cabins providing privacy for all.

**A NO-WAKE ZONE--all boats are required to reduce speed directly in front of the cabin so you can fish from the pier and you are within view of Stone Lake and have a beautiful view of the widening of the river into STONE LAKE.

**Constant updating of this cabin: All new wiring-every wire has been replaced-new outlets-new fixtures, new bathroom, new private well, new septic, new roof on cabin & storage bldg, new water heater, new kitchen counter, sink&faucet, new tile on floor, new porch door, both porches have new screens.

It doesn't get any better!

About Carol Mitchell

I have owned this cabin for 17 years and we make updates to it every year. This year it is the electric fireplace with a stoned-in wall around it. Photo coming soon.

Why Carol Mitchell chose Northern Wisconsin

1. The location - CENTRALLY LOCATED ON THE MANITOWISH CHAIN OF 10 LAKES. Fishing does not get any better than this. Manitowish Waters is truly God's Country. Angler's Cozy Cottage is a little more than a mile away from downtown Manitowish Waters that now has a Trig's Food Store, Post Office, Shops, interesting Restaurants and gas stations.

2. The View - Postcard picture view of the broadening of the Manitowish River into Stone Lake. All those trees in the view are part of the Wisconsin State Woods that surround our resort as well and are part of a snowmobile trail within 1/8 mi of the cabin that is convenient for hiking and biking and the trails span several towns.

3. The Privacy - END CABIN in a small resort right off Hwy 51 and down Birch Hill Road. The 2nd driveway into Hillcrest Resort will take you directly to Angler's Cozy Cottage. There is no reason for any other guest of the resort to wander into your space due to the location and spacing.

4. The Amenities - A Fishing Boat is available for your use or bring your own big boat. A 6' bench is at the end of the L-shape fishing pier. The screened porch has comfy furniture, a table & chairs and a holder for your fishing poles. The fish house has a freezer, lights and running water. The Stone Fire Pit is open for all guests.Living Room Fireplace with a stoned wall around it and ceiling Fan. A smart TV above the fireplace with free Netflix streaming movies and tv episodes, as well as Pandora and other Smart TV stations.

What makes this cabin unique

The Location and the View are the outstanding and unique benefits of this cabin. Being central on the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes--that's why you are here to be fishing all the lakes. The trees in the Wisconsin State Forest surrounding this cabin and resort so that the nature fun-filled atmosphere will never change. The new DNR rules dictate that all new cabins must be built 75 ft back from the water. This cabin is 20-25 ft back from the water. Enjoy. And much much more.

Cabin is within 25 feet of the water with a private pier CENTRALLY LOCATED on the BEAUTIFUL MANITOWISH CHAIN OF 10 LAKES. The advantages of being on the River but only feet from Stone Lake is that all the boats have a low speed limit which makes fishing from the pier more successful as well as swimming and relaxing. Also, the Channels carry the big fish from lake to lake making it easier for you to catch a good-size fish right from your pier.
