Beautiful Three Bedroom, 2 Bath Lakefront Home On 210 Acre Lake
About Property Manager/Owner
As a native Wisconsinite, I have a deep love of the outdoors. I raised my kids at our lake home where we spent every weekend and holiday for almost 25 years. Now single, I live in sunny Virginia Beach, but all my best memories remain 'up north'. I get back there several times a year and we even host a triathlon there once a year in August. The rest of the time you can find me working as a physical therapist or traveling as a volunteer PT around the world.

Another wonderful week on Springstead Lake!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed another stay at Smiley's cabin on Springstead Lake. Had the opportunity to visit with long time friends known to me on the lake. The weather was cool the first day and we took advantage of this by spending the day hiking at near by beautiful Copper Falls. The remainder of the week was sunny and warm and we had much fun swimming off the dock with our floaties, paddling in the canoes around the lake, and the grandkids had a blast tubing behind their Dad's boat. We had fun fishing off the dock and out on the lake. Loved hearing the loons in the still of the evening and watching a pair of eagles hunt over the lake and fly back to their nest across the lake. We enjoyed family meals at the spacious dining table inside....the mosquitos were a bit pesky, but that is part of the adventure....didn't stop us though from having a fire outside in the firepit and making s'mores.
The cabin is cozy and welcoming in every way. Thank you Sara for opening your cabin for others to enjoy. We are already looking forward to next year's stay!

Summer get away
Wonderful week, love the area and what it offers.
The property is very nice. Great setting, great fishing, abundant wild life. Very enjoyable place to stay.
Northern Wisconsin hideaway
This is a great place to stay with children. There is a lot of room to play inside and out. We played kickball, had batting practice off of a tee, a karate session on the lawn (my grandchildren-9,8,6,6-all take karate, and their Dad is very proficient), s'mores by the fire. All outside, of course! Inside, there is plenty of room for game night and movie night. We ate all of our dinners on the deck where the table sat all eight of us. Breakfasts were eaten in the dining area which has a great table for a large group. The mosquitoes were horrible so much need for bug spray. It was a wonderful bonus having the use of two kayaks. We didn't use the canoes, but they were also available. The pier could use some shoring up, but we all went swimming for many hours each day.
The only negatives were broken screens in the screened-in room off of the kitchen. On hot days which we never had, I would certainly want to open the doors leading from the kitchen to allow for more cool air. You wouldn't want to do that with the screens broken. Also, I would recommend to the owner that more storage would be available to guests. There is too much stuff in drawers so we were hard-pressed to be able to unpack. The kitchen has a number of pots and pans, but the frying pans should be replaced. Again, not a lot of space to store groceries.
The pros definitely outweigh the cons, and my family and I had a wonderful time in the house and on the lake. It was a perfect spot to spend quality family time. Thank you, Sara, for the use of your obviously much-loved home.
Summer fishing getaway
The location and lake were very relaxing and quiet for a summer get away. The cabin was easy to use and accommodating but could use some attention as most of the screens have holes so it was very hard to keep the mosquitoes out. The owner was very responsive and addressed issues that came up. We would enjoy visiting again as this area was beautiful.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a nice week. I appreciate your comment about the screens as you know I don't live in Wisconsin and I'm not always aware of the issues until somebody tells me. I will certainly ask Craig to take a look at the screen issue. I'm glad that your week was otherwise Pleasant and hope to see you again
We enjoyed our stay on springstead lake! The cabin was spacious and beautiful! Great Lake!
We had a wonderful family trip! Loved the area and the local resorts to check our via boat!
