Great secluded location with fireplace, charcoal grill, internet, large screen Samsung TV, large fire pit, canoes, rowboat, cozy decor. Nice size and spacious great room with lovely view of Armour Lake. 14 miles to Boulder junction and 3 miles to Presque Isle.
The hot tub was not filled when we arrived and did not pursue using it.
Two issues we had. There was a sewer like smell from the bathroom every time we ran the water for any length of time such as after a shower or doing dishes. Would last an hour or two and then dissipate. Seems like a venting problem. Twice workers with Vacasa came out. One said he found some dead mice in crawl space (likely not the cause). The other put Drano down shower and bath sink drain. Neither of these fixed the problem.
The beds while adequate were not the most comfortable.
With that said, we loved our time here and hope to be back!
We are so glad you stayed with us, Dwayne! We appreciate your review and would like to let you know how tubs in Vilas county are not available for guest use per health department code; the hot tub is not listed as an amenity at this home. A plumber has been scheduled to check the septic system, and pest control has set traps under the house. Thank you!

We had a wonderful week at this Presque Isle gem. Took some canoe excursions on a beautiful lake. Dogs were in heaven and already grumbling that we came home. Loved watching TV on big flat screen in the living room while stealing glances at the beautiful lake. Outdoor fire pit was the best we’ve ever experienced.

A few more details about this home:
Gorgeous lake, clean and clear. Swimming off pier is great, maybe bring water shoes to walk in but otherwise sandy (slightly weedy) and about 5 feet off end of pier.
We LOVED the 2 nice canoes, a kayak and a rowboat that were at the home for us to use. We loved rowing on the lake. There were paddles for 5 + oars for the row boat and several life preservers but may want to bring a few.
Charcoal Weber grill and grill tools. Need charcoal and lighter fluid. Lighter in the house.
Wood pile for outdoor fire pit along with a tripod and grate for grilling over the fire, there were about 6 plastic chairs and 2 folding chairs with side tables at the house. There was also a hammock. May want to bring spits for s’mores.
The property is lovely, within 20 feet of the lake shore. Lake is quiet and beautiful, hardly saw a soul. We had a wonderful time!
Comfortable beds and bedrooms. Felt clean. Queen size master and a single over double bunk bed in second bedroom. There is also a pullout sofa with bedding in the living room. There was a large room fan and ceiling fans in both bedrooms.
Kitchen could use some TLC especially if you plan to cook. There are dishes and silverware and plenty of pots and pans. Would definitely be nice to have mixing bowls, casserole dish or two, measuring cups/spoons, vegetable peeler (otherwise bring those if you want/need). Toaster, coffee maker (need cone shaped filters), microwave, electric stove, oven and refrigerator provided. NO dishwasher so bring bleach to make sure your dishes and silverware are sterilized/sanitized.
Only 2 dish towels but plenty of bath, hand towels and wash clothes provided. Nice HE LG washing machine and dryer available in second bedroom closet. Bring detergent etc. Bring extra TP and hand soap.
We noticed mouse droppings on the kitchen counter the 3rd or 4th night. Will report to Vacasa. There was also an extremely unpleasant smell when we entered the house that faded as the house aired out, thinking maybe a rotting animal in the vents (mouse?). Will also report to Vacasa to investigate.
Awesome DVD collection and comfortable living area with 2 large (1 reclining) couches and a leather recliner. Huge windows looking out on the lake that open. Great breeze through the house.
The WIFI is very spotty and slow. No US Cellular reach at all. Nice to unplug though. Husband went into Boulder Junction coffee shop to do some work a few mornings.
Overall, wonderful property, would rent again in a second. Comfortable and relaxing northwoods cottage. Thank you for sharing!
Hi, Molly! Your thorough feedback is so appreciated in helping us create an even better guest experience. We have scheduled pest control, and we are working on bulking up the kitchen inventory. Thank you!

We spent the week at Armour Cabin and it was a wonderful escape. The lake was very peaceful and having our own lakefront spot, complete with private dock, was perfect. The fire pit area was a highlight as well and we went canoeing several times. The cabin is well maintained with nice updates. I would echo another reviewer to say that a few more kitchen items would’ve been nice: a set of mixing bowls, cup measures, a strainer. But we made do and this didn’t affect our stay (it’s more of a suggestion than a critique). We’d love to come back again someday!

We loved our time at the Armour cabin! The wifi was pretty reliable for the most part which allowed me and my husband to work remotely in the beautiful northwoods. It's a cozy property and very well maintained.

The house was sparkling clean! The decor and lake views were exactly what we needed to be decompress from city life. I can't wait to visit in the summer!

Cozy clean cabin just a few steps away from the lake. Liked that we had Wifi to research the area and also cable tv for winding down at night. Happy they also welcomed dogs. I would recommend having baking supplies such has mixing bowls and measuring cups n spoons for us that enjoying baking. Wish the hot tub was useable in the winter.Love the place tho and already thinking of going back next year.
Hello, Lisa! Thank you for leaving a review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have passed your suggestion regarding baking supplies to our local team. We look forward to hosting you in the future.
