We spent two weeks at this quiet lakeside cottage. Squaw Lake is a 700+ acre, very quiet lake that is great for fishing, tubing, skiiing, and just relaxing on the water. The tannin-colored water is clean for swimming, and our elementary age kids kids spent lots of time swimming and paddle boarding near the property even though the water was still pretty chilly for much of our stay. We were able to dock the boat at the property, and there is a public boat launch so we were also able to explore other lakes in the area. The cottage is about 20 minutes from downtown Minocqua where you can get anything that you might need or visit the cute shops in town or see the water skiing show. The cottage has central air conditioning and Internet access, although it is in the woods so it is not always great for streaming videos and such. There’s a fire pit for having a campfire, and the area around the cottage is filled with little streets for taking a walk. We truly enjoyed our stay in the north woods of Wisconsin!

Had a great stay. Exactly what we wanted. Clean, easy lake access and swimming, nice outdoor space with fire pit. Beautiful area overall. Accommodating host who even took us on a boat tour of lake. Perfect for family with small kids looking to get away.

Great water access and modern, clean cabin. Everything worked and we were very comfortable. Somewhat far from Minocqua, which is an advantage in some ways.

We had a great family trip at Sweet Serenity! The cabin was very clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. There’s plenty of space indoors and outdoors. The lake is beautiful, dock is clean and the outdoor fire pit was so nice to enjoy in the evenings. We also loved having fun on the paddle boards that are included with the stay. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this cabin to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing getaway! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Sweet Serenity is a comfortable cabin. All the essentials are provided and the inside is very clean. You have a nice lake view and having your own dock is so nice. The fishing was so so. The parking is tight and no place to turn around. Make arrangements ahead of time on where to park a boat trailer.

Sweet Serenity was a wonderful getaway for our family! The cabin space is ideally laid out, with space for everyone. The cabin was very clean and certainly turn key ready for us to start our adventure at the lake! The Lake is great - almost like being on your very own private lake! Plenty of space to play on the water but also plenty of calm water to fish or kayak / paddle board. The lakefront property has a nice amount of green space and a great dock. Would recommend staying at Sweet Serenity time and time again.

This cabin is very clean and set up nice! Everything you need is there and the location is close to everything. Parking is definitely tight if you have a larger vehicle especially with a trailer so be sure to plan this out ahead of time. Overall very happy with this cabin!!

Sweet Serenity is a fantastic place to stay, everything one would need for a vacation in the woods and on the water. My son and his father both were able to get musky during this trip. My son is only nine, and he caught his first and second musky. His father caught a 42” musky, so there are some good ones in there too. Great cabin with all the amenities. Beautiful Squaw lake is right out the door, and a gradual slope unlike others we have seen with steep hills. One of my favorite things to do while visiting is to peacefully sit on the dock bench in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch for bald eagles while listening to the loons. Very kid friendly! My son enjoys swimming in the lake and taking kayak rides. Sweet Serenity is located in a perfect area, minutes from downtown Minocqua Wi, where we went shopping and picked up groceries . Can’t wait until our next vacation, definitely will be requesting this place again.

Every year I plan a ladies vacation and we have had the pleasure of staying at the lake front home known as Sweet Serenity for the past 3 years, and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. The owners have been wonderful to work with, the home and property are beautifully kept, and the rental cost has ALWAYS been affordable. The view and home are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! There are some great restaurants a short drive away (Popes Gresham Lodge is a favorite of ours as well as Black Bear Bar). We love that Sweet Serenity comes with several paddle boards as well as a two-person kayak that gets us out on the water. We ALWAYS look forward to our trip at our favorite place in Lac Du Flambeau!! We hope to continue our yearly vacations here and are already looking forward to next year!!! July 2020 can’t come soon enough!!!

My family and I stayed at the "Sweet Serenity" cabin this past August(2019), and had a wonderful experience! The cabin had to true up north feel with rustic decor throughout the cabin. It was clean and well maintained. The lake was beautiful, and had some good luck fish! My sister even got her first musky! My family had a great time using the kayaks and paddle boards that came with the cabin as well! It was the perfect relaxing stay, and I look forward to the next time that I am able to stay at the "Sweet Serenity!"

Bottom line it was a perfect get away for our family! We were able to cook for most of our meals at the cabin however, because of the convenience to Minocqua, my wife was able to get a break at some fantastic local restaurants. In addition, while Ben and I did some fishing, the girls were able to do some shopping in town. I had a nice musky within an hour of fishing, with Ben and Annika later catching their own muskies!! We had nice pike action to fill-in the gaps. All the girls loved kayaking around the lake without much lake boat traffic at all. At night we were entertained with perfect dark skies, revealing the milky way like our ancestors experienced without light pollution. We heard coyotes calling at night, loons calls all day and watched deer at a variety of times. Thanks again for a great experience. The cabin was clean, well equipped and a great place to vacation. I certainly look forward to another chance to visit!

My family of 5 +1 Fam friend stayed a week this summer and we enjoyed everything about our stay. From booking, to arriving, our stay, and departure everything was smooth and seamless. The Cabin is very clean, homey, warm and cozy, the view from the lake might be the best on the lake. The ride into town is less than 20 min and there are plenty of nice restaurants and grocery stores. Bring your fishing gear, and s’mores, it’s gonna be a wonderful getaway. We cannot wait to go back. Thanks for making our stay so memorable!
