Fully-equipped, 2400 square foot, year-round home on southeast shore of beautiful, 3300-acre Long Lake. The contemporary-styled exterior houses a custom hard-wood trimmed interior which can accommodate large groups comfortably while still retaining its cozy and intimate feel for smaller parties. (see previous guest comment)

The house is roomy and flowing upstairs and down. The main, upper level, houses two bedrooms and one and a half baths with a large kitchen and adjoining great-room which open to an enclosed three-season porch and an outdoor deck.

The walk-out downstairs has two bedrooms and is served by a quaint kitchenette with an adjoining family room accented by a stunning floor to ceiling, field-stone fireplace. The oversized downstairs bath is senior friendly with a garden, Jacuzzi tub and a separate, enclosed shower with seating. Step out and head straight to lake.

The home is well placed on a shady, two acre, wooded lot adjacent to an open, grassy, lakefront area with a 25' dock for your water toys. Bring your own or rent your water craft, four-wheelers or snowmobiles nearby. We offer a pontoon rental.

Long Lake is pristine, lightly traveled, and absolutely perfect for fishing, pontooning, water-skiing, jet-skiing, sailing, and swimming. Nearby you will easily find great golf courses and other activities with something for every member of the family.

We respect our neighbors and the environment so this is not the place for wild, loud and inconsiderate groups. A great escape!

We look forward to this trip every year. Lisa is very accomodating.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious enough for everyone to spread out but small enough to be together. Biggest complaint is the uneven walk down to the lake other than that everything else is great.

great house with a view of the lake, three seasons room made for great sitting and visiting with all

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the home on the lake. It had everything that you needed to be comfortable. The boat dock provided enough room for our two boats and the kids could fish off the dock for some pan fish which they enjoyed. The common grounds gave a place to watch from shore, The home was located in the woods with a view of the water through the trees, it was just a short walk from the house to the dock and common grounds for us. The other homes that shared the common grounds used ATVs to go back and forth but did it as reasonably as possible as to not disturb anyone. Early mornings and evenings were spent in the three seasons room where you could sit and visit with everyone and still see the lake. The directions that were given are very good for finding the driveway, we learned that you should use them after Siri mislead us twice. (Larry the Cable Guy does have a nice circle drive that we had to turn around in.) Everyone enjoyed our stay and we have booked for a repeat visit. Thank-you.

Great place for 2 families wanting to spend a week together on a great lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year staying at the Shadel Haus out of the last 6 years. We love coming back every year! Our kids can't wait until next year again. We have 2 families with 5 kids and the house works great for us. Plenty of sleeping room and room to cook, eat, relax and stage for fishing and boating on the lake. We go to the sand bar almost every day of the week for a late morning until late afternoon day of fun filled activities including lunch on the pontoon, tubing, water volleyball, playing in the sand, fishing, enjoying a few cocktails and just soaking in sun and relaxing!.

I would highly recommend the Shadel Haus. It's always clean. The only downside is the number of mosquitos - but that can't be helped.

Enjoyed it very much

  • 5 of 5

As usual everything was great. Just a couple of comments on appliances. The toaster doesn't release on one side and the griddle plug does not stay connected all the time. In addition, the lower part of the new walkway(drive) is quite treacherous to walk on. The first part has packed very well but the bottom part is all loose. None of these are big deals, just wanted to let you know of them.

Spring fishing trip (6 guys)

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Long Lake for close to 20 years for our spring fishing trip. We've stayed at the Shadel Haus for 5 years and it as always been great. With 6 guys we needed a place with at least 6 beds and this place easily handles that requirement. It has always been clean and well supplied. It is by far the best accommodations of all the previous places that we have stayed at on Long Lake. The fishing is also an added bonus.

About Lisa

I grew up in the area and have very fond memories of spending time with our entire family and relatives over the summer.

We purchased the property so our children can have the same great opportunities and memories and hopefully carry on the same tradition to their families as well.

We hope you enjoy yourself and create as many great memories as we have!

Lisa purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Watch the eagles soar from above as their nest is just accross the lake.

Just a short trip up the lake to two great sand bars to enjoy for the day and close by boat to Lincolnwood and Props for great food and cheese curds!

Also, very close by to Dave's Outboard for gas or additional boat rental.
