About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Lakefront Property

We have a newer single family home: 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 living room, lake front property. Our lot is flat out to the lake for more enjoyment. We have a nice big fire pit, a beautiful pier, a swim raft, canoe and a paddle boat for your use. We live on a quiet road so you wont have to worry about traffic. Fish off the pier or take a boat ride on Little Arbor Vitae Lake. The lake is filled with Musky, Largemouth Bass, panfish and Walleye. The public boat launch is only a 1 minute boat ride from our pier. Majority of the lake is federal land so you will have beautiful quiet views. We are only a quick drive to downtown Minocqua, the zoo, mini-golf, horseback riding and so much more!

About Megan

My husband and I are avid outdoors people and purchased this house to spend some time relaxing and making memories with our children. We have decided that we want to share our little slice of heaven with others when we are not able to come up.

Megan purchased this house in 2015

Why Megan chose Wisconsin

Our property is very family friendly. We have a paddleboat, a level lot, a nice big firepit with chairs provided. Our road is not busy so we feel very safe with our kids outside. We have laundry on site for quick clean up. Our shoreline is very kid friendly, no sea-weed and a gradual incline in depth. Next to the shoreline is about 1 ft deep of sandy small/rocky shoreline and gradually increases to 4-5 ft at the end of our dock.

Amazing cabin with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and one toddler. This cabin was absolutely immaculate and comfortable for all of us. The lake was AMAZING with daily views of eagles, osprey, and great fishing. We liked being close to Minocqua, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Northwoods. Thank you for an amazing trip - we will be back next year!

Enjoyable stay at Little Arbor Vitae

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable week. The house was wonderful. Surpassed our expectations. The view from the kitchen was beautiful. Saw lots of bald eagles. Fishing was good. Caught fish off the pier. Was Able to go swimming. We are looking forward to renting this again next year.

Enjoyed it very much.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. It was exactly what our family of 5 needed. The house was immaculate and comfortable. There was plenty of space for us. Very peaceful lake. Swimming was fine, the late summer algae blooms made the water a little green but we didn't mind. The swim raft was great. We used the canoe and paddle boat, and rented kayaks from nearby in Woodruff. We used the firepit each night. The location was perfect with access to Minocqua, Woodruff, St. Germain, and Sayner all within about 15 minutes drive. We found a great state forest hiking trail about 10 minutes drive away. We were thrilled to find a church 8 miles away. We would stay here again.

Great place, Great lake!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a nice Memorial Day weekend at Little Arbor Retreat. Like the description says, the lake is surrounded by national forest land, so it was great for boating, paddling and fishing. The home was clean and spacious; although we spent most of our time outside or on the boat. Recommend for families or couples. Thanks!
