A wonderful family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything is so well maintained and beautiful. The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities we could have asked for. We spent most of our time down at the beach enjoying the water toys, fishing and playing yard games. In the evening we cooked out on the deck on their very nice gas grill. If we needed anything, downtown Tomahawk was just a short drive away. Mary and Ross are extremely accommodating and helpful. This was the perfect place to relax and spend quality time with the family. Our only regret was not staying longer. We hope to be back next summer.

Owner's Response: Dear Vincent Family, It was definately our pleasure serving your family. We are so glad you made use of all our outside games, the kayaks, paddleboat, and the fishing. We are also glad for your time around the fire---something special happens when we just sit and relax. Also thanks for leaving the home in such great shape. Our grandchildren used the left over worms!! Have a great year, hope to be able to serve you again. The Nelson's

Perfect place for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and big enough to accommodate a large family. The property offers anything you would want when being on a lake vacation. And to top it off the owners are so nice. We will definitely plan to come back!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at the Nelson's lake house the first week and a half of June. The pictures are accurate although the view of the lake and their gardens are more beautiful in person.

The house was clean, comfortable and was well stocked to get you started. The decor, paint and linens were lively. The coral paint in the bathroom was my favorite. Very cheery. We had a small problem with ants, which Ross addressed immediately, but when you are in nature, you're bound to get a few visitors. Including the river otter who has made his home right across the lake from the Nelsons.

Mary, Ross and Andy were very nice, and respectful of our space and privacy. They did check in on us to ensure we had everything we needed and to share about their families history in the town and local hot spots.

We visited quite a few shops, everyone we had the pleasure of interacting with were incredibly welcoming and kind. You certainly get the small town charm and friendliness that most larger cities lack. It was a welcomed change!

If you stay here, the water toys provided hours and days of entertainment, clean and in great condition. The lake is quiet, calm waters and good for pan fishing. The indoor toys kept my little one busy on the rainy day, and we took advantage of badminton and the fire pit. The 'Cheese Shop' is a must to visit, cute knick knacks and tasty cheeses, spreads and homemade bread.

We were happy to be coming home, but will certainly miss this wonderful getaway. Thank you Mary, Ross and Andy for the hospitality! Should we make our way to Wisconsin again (we're in Texas), we will be staying here hands down.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure starting our summer off with such wonderful guests. It is also our joy when the guests enjoy the whole property: house, lakefront, yard, and gardens. We welcome you back absolutely anytime again. I am sure it was a long trip so I thank you for choosing to spend your time at our property. Please tell your father "thanks" for the great knots he tied for us in the boat. So appreciated. Also thanks for breaking in our new splash pad and letting me be excited about our new toy for the water! You enriched our lives, The Nelsons

Was a god stay.

  • 5 of 5

I took my daughter and son 8 and 9 year old to get away from everyday routine life, to rest and spend some time together . Property was great, kids friendly, large front yard for any games and playing. Home itself is super clean, fully equipped kitchen, unbelievably comfortable beds. I think I slept better than I sleep at home. Owner Ross & Mary were very nice, friendly and accommodative people. Thank you for great time.
