Northern Wisconsin House Rental Photos and Description

On the Banks of the Brule River

This is a one of a kind opportunity for those who love the outdoors and nature. Walk out the front door and there is the famous Brule River in your front yard. A five minute drive down the road brings you to the shores of beautiful Lake Superior and the mouth of the Brule River.

This historic piece of property was homesteaded in 1893 with the current house being built in 1947. This well kept, clean four bedroom home offers three bedrooms upstairs and one on the main floor, with a full size bed in each. The main floor has a quarter size bath with a full bath upstairs.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, bakeware, tableware, utensils and offers a stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. There is a gas grill available for your use.

The living room has a TV with cable installed. Local phone service is available for emergencies and is capable of accepting all incoming calls. Outgoing calls can only be local unless you have a call card. Internet services are provided April through October.

No linens are provided. While all of the beds have a mattress protector and a clean fitted sheet, renters will need to bring their own pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, etc. Towels, washcloths, dishcloths, also, are not provided. Throughout the home are beautiful terrazo floors... bringing slippers is always a good idea.

You will love the peace and quiet this property has to offer. The soothing sounds of the river will relax you as you sit on the covered front porch and take in the beauty of this secluded setting.

Please contact us today to book your next vacation get away.

Perfect for Getting Away from it All

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as expected. The renters were easy to get a hold of to answer any questions and the instructions for usage covered everything. I would definitely recommend this property for folks wanting to simply get away and enjoy the stillness of nature. If you are interested in canoeing or kayaking the nearby Brule river offers numerous opportunities. Although it wasn't in season it sounds like the river provides trout and salmon fishing opportunities. I would rent this property again without hesitation.

Great stay at the McNeil's on the Brule. Very clean and comfortable property. Enjoyed reading the history of the property. Fishing was so so, but the location was excellent. Definitely looking forward to another stay. The property managers are great people! And the property is very well cared for! Enjoyed the cell phones having no service. This is a PLUS!!!! :-)

Great fishing cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second stay for my fishing group. The house is a step back in time. It's like my Grandmother's house. It's very clean and comfortable. Nice kitchen. Only house I've ever seen in the Midwest with terazzo floors on the ground and upstairs!. The people who own the house are just down the lane and access to the river is easy.

A beautiful retreat on the magnificent Brule River. A very tranquil location. The property and accommodations were clean and orderly. Everything you could have needed was supplied in the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and my family would certainly recommend this rental location.

Brule 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had another wounderful stay at this property! We stayed three days this time and would have stayed longer... next time.

Our focus was Kayaking on the Brule. Need more time to just sit and enjoy the surroundings.
