Northwoods at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutley fantastic home!! The house was extremely clean, and the fireplace was wonderful. The views are great, especially looking up at the stars - truly amazing. We can't wait to get back to the northwoods and enjoy the summer months - fishing, rafting and tubing.

Nice & Cozy Northern Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend in this cozy cabin. The location and view over looking the Peshtigo River is very unique. We were able to make use of the two kayaks provided to test out the river current which was a bit challenging due to all the spring rains, but was a beautiful ride. The biggest feature for us was the large screened in porch to sit an relax with our 4mo. old granddaughter without the hassle of bugs and mosquitoes. The cabin is located real close to the atv trails as we manage to put on about 250 mi. leaving right from the cabin. Brett the owner and property manager Jane did a great job making sure our stay was awesome!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic. Two bird hunters could not have asked for more. Dogs were accepted, beds were comfortable and the setting was great. We'll be back next year.

A great family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Brett and Lynne, you have a fantastic cottage! It is roomy, clean, well decorated, and has great views of the river. The online pictures don't do it justice. Our kids (ages 20, 16, 11) loved the peace and quiet; no cell phones or internet! We fished the river, hiked, and relaxed by the campfire and stars at night. We ventured out to explore the waterfalls in Marinette county; they were amazing! We're looking forward to coming back in the summer for some white water rafting, tubing and kayaking. Brett, thanks for providing everything we needed to make our stay a great family time experience. If you're looking for a great north woods experience, the Wild Iris is your place!

The Wild Iris was beautiful and rustic in a classy way. Very roomy along with a well equipped kit!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 teenage boys, and nephew stayed from 8/14 to 8/19. We had a great time doing all the activities that the surrounding areas offer. White water rafting, zip lining, and many hours of fishing.

However, our favorite memories are coming back to the cabin and relaxing in the giant screened in porch. Gathering around the big fire pit and star gazing. Waking up early and walking down to the river to try and outsmart a Bass or Northern. We really needed some family time and the Wild Iris made it happen. Also, thank you Brett for being so flexible and helpful.

Kevin,Kim,Sean,Jeff, and Danny.
