About Pete Schlosser

My 3 brothers and I own the Sprucewood on Dam Lake. We are all from Oconomowoc, WI. We love this property in the north woods and have made many great memories with our families over the years.

Pete Schlosser purchased this house in 2003

Why Pete Schlosser chose Northern Wisconsin

We chose to buy this home after renting it for a number of years. We had always expressed an interest in the property to the owner and told him that if he ever considered selling to please let us know. The time came that the owner moved to Florida and we were fortunate enough to get the call from him.

What makes this house unique

The serenity and beauty is unmatched. You are truly in one of the most peaceful places in the world. The lake is beautiful and a fantastic fishing lake as well. It is a class AAA musky lake. Great boating and skiing lake as well as being on the chain of 4 other lakes on the Sugar Camp chain of lakes. The dining in the area is tremendous and the overall northwoods experience is wonderful.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The kitchen, living room and interior has just been upgraded and looks absolutely beautiful. Not many places in the North Woods as nice and as spacious as Sprucewood. Great time. We will defintiely return.

10 of us had a great Christian Retreat easily accommodating all of our needs for a long weekend of fun, relaxation, great eats, worship, sightseeing... Incredible views from the family room of the lake with a fireplace! Haven't been here in the Summer but imagine the North Woods have to be stunning as they sure were in the Winter!! Big Property with plenty of bedrooms to accommodate big families or large group of friends. A must Do Place to Visit.

Nice location, Up North feel

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property mid July. There were 14 of us! It has ample space for large families, including 3 bedrooms upstairs, and 2 downstairs. The "living room" is average size in comparison, we spent a lot of family time in the kitchen. The kitchen has a nice size table and extra seating at the breakfast bar, and couch in the kitchen. We enjoyed listening to music during our nightly dinners. We all like to cook, so we ate in every night, and had plenty of utensils, etc. to use. The additional refrigerator in the garage was very nice for keeping all of our drinks cold. The deck off the kitchen was nice. It had a small circle table with 3 chairs, and a picnic table. It was narrow and over looked the back yard. The back yard had a fire pit with some plastic chairs provided. The hot tub was gone to our disappointment. The lower floor has a patio door that opens to the back yard. It is functional, nothing fancy. The view of the lake was beautiful! The downside is you have to walk down approx. 30 STEEP stairs to get down to the dock. There was an aluminum fishing row boat for guests to use. We opted to also rent a ski/fishing boat for our week trip from St. Germain watersports. There is no "beach" to set up chairs or for young children to play in. There is a floating aluminum raft that provides a small amount of extra space for the non fishing water lovers to hang out. This property is MUCH closer to St. Germain (7-8 mi) than Eagle River (twice as far), but truly gives you that Up North feel. Dam lake was very clean, and we caught enough fish for a family fish fry our last night. It was with some advice from the locals and a map of the lake with the crib locations. The house itself is outdated, and needs some TLC. The "game room" is really is sad shape, as the pool table only had one stick available for use, the fooseball table was broken and in bad shape on our arrival, and the ping pong table was missing in action. It was later "found" between the boxspring and matress of one of the beds downstairs. The property manager did come out to fix the fooseball table, as I was

worried it may fall. It was currently FOR SALE during our stay. Contact with the owners was always smooth, and the property manager was very friendly and helpful. The laundry room on the main floor was a lifesaver, as our kids kept "falling in" the lake ;) Overall, it was an average place to stay considering the cost for the size and location.

Great get-away for large family

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at your place. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is not the most fanciest place, but I would rather stay somewhere and feel relaxed as opposed to being nervous about damaging a beautiful piece of furniture. When you are up north, hopefully you are spending most of your time outside. We really appreciate the fact that you let us bring our dogs; they are part of the family.The weather was pretty good and we were especially pleased to find out that you have a service for pest control come in and spray. We had absolutely no mosquitoes, which was something we were very concerned about.

Your place offers great swimming. There were absolutely no weeds. And we all had a great time around the firepit. The new kitchen is beautiful. You surely have enough pots and pans. We were all very comfortable for sleeping and it was great to have so many beds.

Thanks for a great week!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Positives; Large enough house and parking to accommodate 4 families. All appliances were in working order. Great outdoor space for activities. Property was clean. Shopping and entertainment within a short drive. Beautiful area and wildlife.

Negatives; Property owner/manager should provide detail of distance and difficulty to lake/boat ramp. Two of the amenities listed were either not at the property or unavailable.

Owner's Response: I am one of the owners of the property and would like to address the 2 amenities that were not there as listed. The first is our 14 foot aluminum fishing boat that was stolen from our property the week prior, but we rented one for this group and have since replaced it. The second is the hot tub that was unfortunately removed last year. There are about 25 steps that lead down to the lake as we do not have a flat, walk out front.

Men's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We used this cabin for a Christian Men's Retreat and we had a spectacular time. We had 8 men and the bedrooms were perfect for us. The kitchen is large and allowed us all to eat together. The living room comfortably fit us all to meet together. The views from the cabin were great. We also liked that St. Germain was not far for supplies. There was lots of snow and we ice fished in front of the cabin and did catch a walleye. The guys who were in the house saw us jumping up and down. I think you will enjoy the cabin.

"Up Nort" This is the Place to go to Escape the Big City!

  • 5 of 5

Have been retreating to the Great "UP NORT" paradise in the woods for the past 5 years now and absolutely love coming here. The fishing is great especially knowing that the almighty Musky is lurking down there for you. Haven't caught the monster yet but that is what keeps us coming back!. The cabin should be called a mansion in cabin standards and is plenty spacious for both our families that meet there each year. If your looking for a place to go "Up Nort" this is the place to go. The owners are very accommodating to all of our needs and never had any problems. It is also priced very reasonable for what you are getting which is a lot. You won't be disappointed staying here!
