About Mike or Lori

Owner, Healthcare Practitioner, and North Woods enthusiast.

Mike or Lori purchased this house in 1985

Why Mike or Lori chose Wisconsin

Once in a life time opportunity to purchase property on the East side of Big St. Germain lake off a private road with 6+ acres of forest.

What makes this house unique

House is off a private road, shared with 3 other homes. We have 200 feet of lake frontage with an amazing screened in porch (do not rent a home in north woods without a screened in porch!). Being on the East end of the lake, we get a constant breeze. This constant breeze keeps you cool and SIGNIFICANTLY reduces the bugs. Our house faces west for breath taking year long sunsets and lake views. The property features the rare find of level frontage & shallow access to the lake with a sand bottom for great swimming. Large pier for all your water toys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Clean, comfortable and exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and truly enjoyed our first visit to northern WI. The home was set up well for our needs and we were immediately "at home" upon arrival. Bring your own food, clothing and fishing gear and know that the rest is available upon arrival. The owners provided ever possible accommodation and their welcome binder was full of helpful information on the home, the community and local attractions. The folks in town were very friendly and anything we forgot to bring was available with local shopping. The fishing on Big St Germain was tough but we were able to catch all the fish we wanted in several smaller local lakes.

We will be back!

We had a great time. Has all the amenities of home. Loved the AC with it being 90 degrees the week we were there. House is set up perfect for a family with small kids. The pocket door to the 2 bedrooms is nice for quiet while the kids are sleeping. The refrigerator is awesome. Nice big size. We didn't even need the coolers we brought along. The kids had a blast jumping off of the pier into the water.

Great week of fishing!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice, secluded property. The walk down to the dock is super easy and flat. There's plenty of room for multiple boats. The view from this part of the lake is spectuclar. It's a shallow bay so there's not fishing off the dock but it has sandy bottom. The cabin is very comfortable and laid out very well for a small group.

St.Germain Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Mikes place was perfect for us. Home is very nice and secluded and it has a great screened in porch to relax on and read a book. Very nice pier to tie a boat up to. Boat landing is right down the street. Mike is great to work with. This is probably the easiest vacation home to book as everything is automated online for you. Mike is readily available if needed. Place was clean, well maintained, and is on a premier lake in Northern Wisconsin. Definitely would return in the future. Very relaxing place.
