Gorgeous lakefront lodge w/dock, deck, game room & firepit

Otter Cove is a retreat that provides the ideal setting for creating cherished memories with friends and family. Having over 5,600 square feet of living area on three levels, this lodge was built to accommodate several families by providing both large common areas and private sleeping quarters.

When you pull up the driveway, you will see how Otter Cove was designed to be a secluded oasis, with its large wooded lot providing your own private retreat in the woods. You’ll see the yard gently slope to the tranquil waters of Long Lake, with stands of pine, birch, and maple trees framing the gorgeous view.

A few steps into the home, and you’ll be in the spacious great room that is anchored by a two-story, wood-burning stone fireplace and flanked by a wall of windows so you can watch bald eagles soaring over Long Lake! With a farmhouse-style dining table and large breakfast bar, the great room provides all of the amenities you need for entertaining and large family gatherings. The big, open kitchen easily accommodates multiple cooks to relive fond memories while cooking a family feast.

After a full day of recreation, you’ll look forward to retreating to the comfort of one of Otter Cove’s five themed bedrooms that call on the nature surrounding the home. On the main floor, Moose Meadow provides a queen bed and large windows overlooking tranquil views of the woods. Or enjoy the lake view from Deer Haven, which easily sleeps six with its three queen beds and two double closets. Ascend the log staircase and walk through the French doors into to the enormous, black-bear themed master suite, which is appointed with a king bed, a twin bed, seating area, balcony, walk-in shower, Jacuzzi tub, and walk-in closet. Two more cozy bedrooms are tucked away on the walk-out lower level for the ultimate in privacy and comfort: Pine Hollow has one queen and two twin beds, and Angler’s Paradise has a king bed. The bunk room on the main floor means the kids can have their own accommodations.

Otter Cove rests on 600 feet of shoreline on the largest in-land chain of lakes in the world, the Eagle River chain of 28 lakes. In the summertime, this means you can enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking, or just waiting to catch a glimpse of the otters that play in a their namesake cove adjacent to the property. You can spend your days relaxing on the three-season enclosed porch or on the wrap-around deck. Gather around a bonfire to roast marshmallows and enjoy the view of the Milky Way – if you are lucky, you’ll catch the Northern Lights too! For rainy days, the property also features cable, free WiFi, darts, foosball, air hockey, and a pub-style shuffleboard table. 

Located on the western edge of Nicolet National Forest, this home will allow you to spend your days exploring hiking trails, biking trails, and swimming beaches. In the winter, Otter Cove is located just off the snowmobile trail system offering hundreds of miles of groomed trails accessible from your front door. In addition to abundant cross country ski trails nearby, Ski Brule (the number one Midwest ski resort) is less than 30 miles away, providing alpine skiing from November to April.

The house could not have been more perfect. The home itself was gorgeous and spacious and well stocked. The waterfront was spectacular. We never left the property for the entire week. A perfect place for two families to join together for a relaxing and fun vacation!

Prize property on the Norygern end of the Three Lakes Chain. Large frontage gives you privacy. House is spacious and set up well. Enjoy

Room for all. The cabin accommodated our large family comfortably. There were bedrooms that each individual family has their own space and that is important to us when two of our families have young children. The great room is amazing. Meal time is enjoyable when everyone is together. A new play set outside entertained the kids for hours. Most of our week is spent outside. Fishing, tubing, yard games and a fire to end every night. Can’t wait to get back.

Gorgeous! The cabin was beyond our expectations and comfortably held our party of 20 (ranging in age from 1-80). Large bedrooms with beautiful wooden furniture and plenty of bathrooms made spending a week with our extended family a breeze. The large dining table and beautiful kitchen were perfect for meals together. An open great room with stone fireplace was warm and inviting. My favorite though, was the peaceful view of the lake while having my morning coffee and listening to the loons! With 2 docks, there was plenty of space for fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, and more fun on the water. The play set and yard area was perfect for our young kids (ages 1-9). This cabin was simply perfect and we look forward to returning next year!!!

A wonderful vacation stay for our large group. The location is great. Not too far from town to run in and pick up things as needed, but far enough away to “get away”. The house is beautiful. With our group of 5 families we do not feel like we are tripping over each other, there is plenty of space. There is a lot to do outside. The piers are great for jumping off and it’s a quiet spot for a swim. You can fish off the pier too. There are lots of places to enjoy the view and relax. The game room area is wonderful for the whole family on those days you can’t be outside. Would recommend for sure!

This is our second year coming to Otter Cove. Our group is made up of five different families, and we had plenty of space to spread out. They have added a play set for the children which was used everyday. Plenty of room inside and out for the entire family to play games or just run around. If you are interested in hiking there are trails close to the house. You will find many people biking in the area. The house is located on a chain of lakes which allows for all types of water activities, boating, swimming, tubing, skiing, jet skiing and fishing. The town of Three Lakes is a short trip if you need something. Three Lakes has groceries, ice cream, restaurants, gas stations a winery and shops. Eagle River is about a half hour away. Our family looks forward to gathering again at Otter Cove next year!

This place was amazing. It was so comfortable for a larger group/family get together. It has everything you would need. Great decorating details made each bedroom unique and fun. The house itself was situated on a great part of the lake and views were magnificent. Highly recommend!

We had our first winter cabin experience here and we are now hooked. The cabin is beautiful, cozy and spacious (the pictures don’t do it justice!) with gorgeous views of the lake and trees. There’s something magical about being in a cabin in the winter and our 3 kids agree. Our favorite activities were hanging out by the fire with friends, reading a book while looking out at the lake, enjoying amazing meals, and playing games downstairs. This cabin does not disappoint!

It was our first year at the cabin and entire family of 18 came up. The lay out of the cabin is great. We are outside all day. Since the cabin is in a cove we could trust our young kids to paddle board, kayak, and swim without worry of boat traffic. Two docks gave enough room for everyone to enjoy the view and pan fishing off the dock. The cabin is awesome. Each family has their own private room. A space to ourselves if needed. The basement is large enough for all the kids to play when there is a rain shower. One of my favorite things in sitting on the deck looking at the water and having my morning coffee. This place is perfect for our family vacation

Great place for our family of 20, ages 1-81. Dining room/kitchen area large and room for all to eat together as one big family. Bedrooms spacious with a family in each room. The house is located on a bay. The kids and young adults loved the lake and had a great time jumping off the pier and swimming. The lower level has a large open area for the young kids to play. There is a very comfortable deck which can be used for many different things. There is plenty of room outdoors for eating and just playing. Will come back!
