We loved the serenity of the location. The view from the cottage was spectacular. The sound of the loons. We had the comforts of home and the surroundings of the North Woods. It was especially nice this year, because the colors of the trees were in full array! Thank you!

Our total trip came off without problems. All systems were clean and functional upon arrival. This was our second time here. We would like to return next years on the same week-end, with the same time slots.

Vacasa recently took over management of this property and for the record the local rep was GREAT...cabin and experience not so much.
Cabin needs a lot of maintenance i.e. windows that would not close, doors that would not lock, loose faucets. Mattresses on the lower level are simply awful, the local Vacasa rep brought out a 4" mattress topper which dramatically improved the bed which is two twins pushed together on a pull out couch type frame..... in general the furnishings need replacing (couch, chair, beds etc..)
Simple things like trash bags were not stocked, email referencing checkout asked we wash the towels, no detergent left behind... and is this legal? Towels and linens should be bleached per health code.
In speaking with the local rep I am confident they will get this cabin squared away. I would give Vacasa another try, just not in this cabin.
Hi Ben, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We regret that our home did not meet your expectations when you stayed with us. We have replaced the mattresses in our home, and made other improvements to the home based on the feedback you provided during your stay. We hope to have another chance to impress you.

First day, great fishing...day two and three OK...three evenings we experienced hot action from the dock...enjoyed the grill, kayaks and horseback riding across the street...the house was clean upon arrival and all systems functioned as expected.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay on Wildcat Lake. The property was close to the snowmobile trail (which we were in the area to do) and close to Boulder Junction and local places to eat, fuel and shop. Would definitey stay here again.

The property was great! The pictures are a little off - the house was smaller than we expected and we did not know that the neighbors would be right on top of us on both sides. Lake was beautiful and use of sailboat, kayaks and canoes was great to have. Loved that the house was so clean! You must have an outstanding cleaning staff! There was not one cobweb anywhere in the house or spot of dust in any corner. Would have liked information on how to work the TV - even my tech heavy kids gave up on it. We finally did get it working the final evening we were there. Would also like more info on what kitchen items are actually in the house. I brought along a lot of extra stuff for kitchen and it was all there already. Also nice that there is a full size washer and dryer in this house and detergent. Also dragged along fans and found that there were some already there. Thank you for all your input... We are putting together detailed inventory list so you won't need to bring extra items.

We really enjoyed the cabin and the property, and had a great vacation. We used all of the watercraft and the swimming area every day, and spend out evening on the porch playing games, eating summer sausage and listening to the loons.

Easy access to the lake with a private dock. While not used, the washer and dryer was a very nice amenity to have access to.

It was wonderful! Everything about the cabin was wonderful! We very much enjoyed our time there and look forward to staying there again in the future.

It was just an amazing time! My 2 children now have wonderful memories for life. We will be back next year!

This was our first year in Birch cabin and we absolutely loved it. We felt right at home, right from the beginning! What was your reason for visiting? My family has been going up north my whole life. For me, it is the best kind of vacation. This resort is awesome for families, as there is fishing, boating (kayaking) and a beach. I appreciate this, as many "resorts" do not offer these.....Tell us about your favorite feature of the property.The view!! Also the beach and availability of kayaks. Having a washer and dryer was also incredibly helpful!

Stayed for a long weekend getaway in the Birch cabin. Cabin was very clean and had all of the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Three season room was very nice to enjoy an evening sunset or your morning coffee. Julie was great to deal with. Very professional and prompt with answers to questions. Will definitely return! Tell us about your favorite feature of the property? The three season room was wonderful!
