About Tim Wightman

We are a family of 8 who love everything about the outdoors. There is no better place to enjoy summer and winter activities than the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Tim Wightman purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim Wightman chose Northern Wisconsin

We have been enjoying summer and winter vacations in the Manitowish Waters/Mercer area for over 20 years. We have been looking for the perfect home for our family of 8 to enjoy. When we found Tall Pines, we knew it would be the perfect vacation retreat for our family, friends and future renters.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the 657 feet of beautiful lake frontage on secluded 2 acres surrounded by tall pine trees. Being at the top of the hill looking down on the lake provides fantastic views.

The house is very comfortable and spacious with plenty of room for a large family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have surveyed several sites and probably a few hundred vacation properties. This property, by far, met and exceeded all of my needs. I am looking forward to August!!

Dream home on a beautiful Northern Wisconsin lake.

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculate large home on a nice lake near Mercer, WI. It has all the amenities you can imagine, and more. Very spacious, but still warm. Fully equipped with all appliances, utensils, etc. Nice furniture and beds. We enjoyed out time at this VRBO rental.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay. We were 3 couples and kids. Everybody enjoyed. The home is beautiful, neat, clean, very spacious and well managed. There are lots of indoor games options. Everybody enjoyed the shuffleboard. Views from living room, bed rooms are mesmerizing. We enjoyed Jacuzzi. Lower floor is cozy and comfortable. We had a great family time there.

Location is awesome, sunny and well ventilated. As it shows in maps, the home is surrounded by lake almost 3 sides.

Tim kept us informed about every detailed step. Care taker Diana was great help and very prompt in addressing any questions we had.

Wish we planned it in summers as well.. May be next time!!!

Fantastic Northwoods Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home stands out as one of very few to quality options in the great northern lake district. Terrific, high-end home /cabin in northern Wisconsin. Home is extremely well appointed and equipped. Kitchen, bedrooms, entertainment, dining all like any fine home. The lakeside setting is 'on golden pond'....the canoe and boat made available by owners are great. Motor rental 'in town' (S&S Sports)turns the fishing boat into a fun adventure for kids and all. Firepit is excellent and the views are private and gorgeous. The owners have clearly made the comfort of this rental a high priority...and the cleaning crew is stellar! The place is immaculate....but comfortable and inviting.

Memorable and relaxing stay with friends

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this beautiful and spacious lake home. The cathedral ceiling and all the windows provided great views of the lake and woods. The home met its promises shown on the listing. All the rooms were neat and tidy. We enjoyed meals on the porch and at the pretty wooden table in the home. Never saw the flying squirrels, but did see and hear the loons everyday. Enjoyed the shuffleboard table. Caretaker Diana was very helpful and checked how our stay was going. Enjoyed the wonderful food at Otto's, Aberdeen's and the Minocqua Brewing Company. Drove to Michigan one day and saw Copper Peak. Would definitely recommend this lake home to friends and family.

Nice property, but several major issues.

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful property, however, over the course of our 1 week stay we had a number of issues. The basement of the house has a strong musty/mold smell leaving the people who were sleeping in the lower two rooms with scratchy throats every morning. The towels and sheets also smelled of mold. Half way through the trip the A/C for the house stopped cooling. Not recommended.

Owner's Response: This is the type of response you get from bad renters who damage your house and are required to pay for issues from their security deposit. We will let our 5 star reviews before and after this renter to speak for themselves. Call if you have any concerns.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house located on a beautiful lakeside property. The fire pit was a big hit for cooking hot dogs and s'mores and included a surprise visit from the resident flying squirrel. The inside of the house is immaculate and has more than enough room for an entire family (or several families) to spread out. When it was time to come together for meals the house provides a beautiful dining/deck area with a spectacular view! If your looking for a beautiful modern house with all of the amenities you can not go wrong with this rental property.
