About The Owner

I'm a north woods guy just retired . .Rocky (my chocolate lab) and I spend most of our time these days making the cabin fun for my family and friends and now our guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 1953

Why The Owner chose Northern Wisconsin

I guess I can say the cabin chose me.Purchased by my parents when I was just a toddler Its always been a part of my life.I have vacationed in many places over the years but there's no place like Eagle River and our cabin on Big Bass Lake.

What makes this house unique

The cabin has gone through many changes over the last 60 years all to benefit the four generations of our growing family but the original log homestead has always remained a constant..Its hard to find another place that the house and the lake seem like one big home. Wether you like peace and quiet and the sound of the loons,eagles soaring or swimming, fishing ,boating volleyball or just relaxing around the campfire you cant beat it.

Great Times Once Again!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again for another amazing trip! It was our third year at Maxson's Point for a family reunion trip. It has become a tradition we all look forward to and draws family in from the West coast. We have created many memories and the family looks forward to many more to come! The littlest one turned 4 this year and learned to swim to and jump off the raft! My nephew caught his first northern and my 73 year old dad caught the largest bass of his life! We didn't think the place could get any better but the owner added a larger fryer which made the fish fry from all of the fish we caught a breeze! Water skiing, swimming, sailing, kayaking, fishing, volleyball, sandcastles, campfires, stars, the list goes on and on! Thanks again!

Family Reunion Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

THANKS FOR ANOTHER AMAZING VACATION! We recently completed our second year at Maxsons Point and cannot wait for next! Last year we held a family reunion here including two families who flew in from - West Coast! It was such an ideal location that everyone agreed to make it a yearly tradition. My 10yr old nephew even chose to write his 'favorite vacation' theme about Maxson's Point over a family trip to Hawaii that they had taken last summer as well! We have all ages from 3-75 and there is something for everyone to do and plenty of space to have time to yourself too. The set-up of the grounds and home are extremely well thought out and comfortable. The owner is so great to work with and bends over backward to accommodate the group and makes sure every detail is attended too. Thanks again!!!

Northwoods Heaven--The Sequel

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year at Maxsons Point, and our 2 weeks with 2 families couldn't have been better!! The improvements from last year made an already-great cabin even better: a 4th full-size refrigerator (!!), great new sofas in the main living room, new futons and mattresses, and a fantastic new sitting area on the fishing pier, perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets.

But the most important things about Maxsons Point are the things that never change, captured best in this poem by our 12-year old niece, Allison Holub on our last day:

Early Mornings

Sun's new rays

hitting tree-tops,

Melting dew drops

Lake, still as glass

Fog rolling in

All the perch and bass

starting their day

with ripples on the water

and here I lay

taking it all in

enjoying it all

faint sounds of a loon's call

I could sit forever

but it's too late

People are stirring

it is time to awake

Owner's Response: The thought of sharing the cabin with strangers was a little overwhelming at first, but has become a joy sharing a place knowing that memories are created and spirits are rejuvenated and at times healed . Best wishes to all my current and future guests

Our Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome vacation! Maxsons Point had everything we could need--inside and out--for our big family: 10 kids (3 mos. to 12 yrs.), and adults to 71 yrs. The cabin was spacious, kitchen well stocked, beds for everyone, and plenty to keep all of us busy when the weather didn't cooperate. Next year we are packing light! Outside--lots of sand toys for the the kids, water toys for all to use...all the canoes and kayaks got a workout! And Bass Lake, what a beautiful clear lake for swimming, boating and fishing. Just after we got there, our 5 yr. old caught a 16" bass after 5 minutes of fishing off the fishing dock! Lots of bass, panfish and northerns were caught by all, and we did CPR (catch-photo-release) for some great memories. The kids even enjoyed trying out the cane poles! We also saw lots of wildlife...eagles, loons, deer, a pair of gray fox, and an otter family with 4 babies! Ken was a joy to work with, attentive to all our needs, making sure we had a great time. We definitely want to come back. When you have kids that want to stay an extra know it is a great place to spend your family vacation!

Large and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our annual family weekend. We had 10 adults and 7 children in our party. The ages of the children were 5 - 15. This place was fabulous. Each family was able to have their own room, there was no fighting over bathrooms, and even with the weather not being the best we had plenty to keep us busy. We were mostly in the house and it is large enough that with 17 of us we didn't feel like we were right on top of each other. Ken was a joy to deal with, very laid back and friendly. Our family have rented different homes for our annual weekends for the past 10 years. I would have to say that this property and the owner were by far my favorite out of all the places. You will not be disappointed in this property!!!
