About GREG

Grew up in a small town where everybody knew everybody and would go out of their way to help each other. I ended up loving people. : ) I live in this home year round, so when you move in, it has everything you need, including the coffee. I like to camp in the summer, so I just move to a different part of the lake while you are enjoying my home. I like renting my home, because when I am home, I work, and when you are at my home, I play. : )

GREG purchased this house in 2013

Why GREG chose Wisconsin

I love living on the lake. The fishing is amazing in the Spring and Fall. The months in between are great for water skiing, boating, jet skiing, swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and a whole lot more! You will love watching the sunrise, and then the very colorful birds come in to eat each day. Lots of Orioles, Yellow Finch, Cardinals and even a Pileated Woodpecker.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the serenity offered by this property. I love watching the sunrise in the morning, the beauty of the birds, and the eight flower gardens around the house. It is so quiet and private, and you wont believe how may stars are in the sky!

Quiet cabin by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends had an amazing time for the weekend we spent in this spacious cabin! With 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and multiple sitting/living rooms, having 6 people and 2 dogs up here wasn't crowded at all. The place is kept really nice and clean, and had all the amenities you might accidentally forget to pack. The yard was great, and wrapped around the whole house, so the dogs could run around without the fear of cars. Every morning I drank my coffee on the wrap around porch which overlooks the gorgeous view of the lake, I could have stayed there for weeks longer. Greg was super accommodating, and easy to get in touch with in the days leading up to our stay. With a fire pit and wood to spare, a bonfire Friday night was the perfect way to relax after unpacking. We drove about 15 minutes Saturday to hike the Old Abe State Trail in Cornell. Once we found where to park, the trail itself was perfect. It wasn't busy at all, so we would go 20-30 minutes without seeing another person. The trails are paved and flat with gorgeous scenery and hills all around you, which meant we probably hiked farther than we could have if we had to go up and down hill. I would highly recommend this property. I didn't know something like this existed, and was very happily surprised at how well the whole trip went.

Owner's Response: This really is a great place to experience God's amazing, beautiful creation. The Lake and wildlife all around, is enough, but the trails are an added adventure. The "Old Abe Bike Trail" is great for even rollerbladers, with a very smooth blacktop trail in the woods and along the Chippewa River. The "Ice Age Trail" is only 15 minutes away and it is great for hiking. Burnett Island State Park has hiking trails as well and is less than 15 minutes away. If you are an off road mountain biker, Ladysmith has trails along the Flambeau River for you too and they are only 15 minutes away.

Beautiful views and very clean.

  • 4 of 5

We had a beautiful view of the sunrise over the water and enjoyed watching woodland birds all day. The cottage was very clean and many amenities. Our kids loved the sand box, swing and yard games. There is a nice area for a bonfire.

Beautiful, spacious property overlooking Lake Holcombe

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this house. There was plenty of room for our large family and two dogs. Having two bathrooms and a spacious kitchen was fantastic. The grounds are spacious and the fire pit was nice in the evenings. The public boat dock right across the street made it easy to get on and off the water, we also fished off the dock. The house is about 15 minutes from a Walmart, and a gas station is about 2 minutes away. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. I feel bad that I was out of the country before and during your stay, and that I was not able to meet you and have the bird feeders stocked with food so you could have enjoyed them during your stay. I am really glad you used the dock. It really is a great place for swimming or just dangling your feet in the water and enjoying the scenery. Thank you for choosing my home for your stay!

Beautiful Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

This home was great! The lake view was a perfect way to start the day with relaxing fires at night. Kayaks were fun and the location was perfect for us (family lives very close by). Super handy to have a boat launch across the street from the long driveway for privacy. We will be back!
