Everything was fantastic! The house was very roomy, clean, and comfortable. There was plenty of toys and space upstairs for the kids to play. The location was beautiful; the leaves were starting to change color which was nice. Even though it was a little chilly, we were still able to enjoy plenty of camp fires and take the kayaks out.

Cabin was perfect for our family

Everything about this property is exactly as described!

The home itself is gorgeous - very spacious and well-laid-out. Pantry is well stocked with staples and kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. The kayaks were a ton of fun, and the view of the lake from the dock at sunset was stunning.

NOTE 1: They're not kidding about the lack of internet - AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile all had borderline useless service, and there was no WiFi available in the home. You must be prepared to fully unplug.

NOTE 2: The mosquitos during summer are dense, aggressive, and exist both inside and outside the home. Be prepared to shower in bug repellant or suffer.

We had one minor issue which Vacasa / host were quick to reply to and take care of.

The cabin was amazing. Lots of room and a great view. Access to the garage was great as it let us keep our gear nice and dry.

This is a beautiful home in a great location! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. There was even holiday decorations and a Christmas tree which created a very welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for our holiday stay. The fireplace and bonfire pit were our favorite! (We had wood delivered from a local firewood provider.) Secluded location but yet close enough to skiing and other activities. Amazing place to spend the holidays - Thank you! We will be back!

The home and setting was beautiful. The weather eas great.

I think that's the best review you can give when you get exactly what you are promised.

The house was exactly what they described and very clean and orderly when we arrived. The lake views are great, lots of water fowl about but not many fish during our stay. Beds were comfortable, kitchen utensils on hand were more than adequate, washer and dryer worked great (and we're also nice and clean).

There were 3 kayaks and a canoe on hand which is nice and the fire pit location was great ( bring wood as it isn't supplied and there's nothing lying around, most of the land around the house is private so don't go trespassing in search of free wood). Lake traffic was minimal and quiet, no jet skis or speedboats to ruin the peace of the place.

If you don't like staying in overly built up tourist areas then this should work well for you. This is a great off the beaten path place to stay while you explore the surrounding areas, Porcupine Mountains, Ashland, Bayfield, Apostle Islands, Sylvania Wilderness, Copper Falls State Park and much more are an easy hour or so away. Groceries were available in Mercer, WI and Ironwood and on a smaller scale in Wakefield.

Check in and check out are as simple as can be. Summer or winter I would stay here again if the chance arose.

Nice home, needs a little TLC in places but overall was very nice. Home was not clean on check-in. We had to vacuum up sand, chips, etc, as well as mop a very sticky kitchen and hallway floor.
Debbie G. Aug 2021
Home was beautiful and the family had a great time . Couple things that should be addressed is the fridge wouldn’t stop leaking and the air conditioning just quit pumping cool air which was a huge bummer. The house is well equipped and the kids had a blast catching fish. If your looking for a swimming lake this isn’t the place for you ! Bummer we had to bring our own firewood too!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Debbie. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding some maintenance issues in the home. Since your stay the fridge has been repaired and the AC is working properly. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to host you again soon.

This is a beautiful home on a gorgeous location, that is very remote. We and several of our friends had trouble finding it using gps. Thanks to Dan G for coming to find us and leading us there! We found using Lakeshore as one word got us to the correct road, not two words as listed on the website. It is very functional for cooking and entertaining, watching sunsets and stars.

Laura W. Jun 2021
The home was phenomenal. We enjoy the Solitude and having the lake basically to ourselves. Canoes and kayaks were a big bonus.

Stayed here for a weekend away with my two best friends and we had the best time! Nearby lots of different hiking, snowshoeing, and ski trails. It was a great place to come back to after a long day outside. We each had plenty of space to have privacy and it had a very homey feeling. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub, gas fireplace, and they had every cooking utensil/appliance you could think of for the meals we cooked. The upstairs nook was also fun space to spend time in watching movies, playing games, and listening to music. We will definitely be back!

The house was beautiful and very clean. We always bring bleach along to wipe all surfaces and soak dishes before using, and the rental also encouraged the soaking of dishes although you could tell she did a thorough cleaning of the house. The rooms were lovely, and there were so many spots to sit and visit. The loft has two couches- one for watching the water, and the other for watching Direct T.V. The lake is large and the binoculars the rental provided let's you enjoy the loons and other water birds. The house has some kitchen cupboards that are locked (child proofed) so look for the magnet on the refrigerator to open them. We will be back- it is the perfect spot to stay while visiting the Porcupine Mountains and the waterfalls by the Black River.

Wonderful vacation home on a lovely lake. We stayed in every night for dinner; the kitchen was well appointed. The house has heated floors, which were wonderful at night, but be aware that they put off some heat! Nice bedrooms and baths. Only complaint is that the house does NOT have WiFi. Not sure how I missed this. We hiked every day- Ironton and the Porkies. Great home base (about 50 min to hikes in Ironton, a little over an hour for the Porkies). Used the kayaks and the canoe almost every evening. The sunsets were incredible! Nice quiet location. Fall colors were spectacular.

This home is on a beautiful lake and provides water craft and new personal flotation devices. The campfire and the stars were great entertainment. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds and bathrooms are lovely. It is close to rivers and waterfalls.
Michael W. Aug 2020
Very quiet and peaceful but don’t expect cell phone service or reliable internet. Lake is very shallow so a little tricky o fishing.
Amy L. Aug 2020
lakeshore! House was beautiful and the lake was very quiet and secluded. Having the kayaks and canoes to use was so nice, the lake is perfect for that. Our group of 8 loved our stay!
Mark T. Aug 2020
This home is off the beaten path. The large lot makes you feel like you are miles from anyone. The views of the lake were breathtaking at sunset and as we kayaked and canoed. The house was spacious and comfortable and allowed plenty of room to space out or be together as a family. Thank you for an excellent place to call home for a week!
Tammy A. Jul 2020
This property is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and private get away. The home is beautiful and spacious! The lake is quiet and perfect for kayaking. Kayaks and life vests were provided which was nice. If you are looking for a recreational lake (skiing, tubing, etc...) this is not the lake for you. If you are looking for quiet and privacy then this is the perfect place for you.
Lauren L. Jul 2020
Swan Cove had everything we needed - easy access to the lake with a dock, natural beauty, quiet solitude plus a spacious, well equipped home. We enjoyed watching all the birds (swans, eagles, osprey, loons, hummingbirds, etc) and the stars! We look forward to a return trip.
Irma O. Jun 2020
We stayed four night at this beautiful lakehouse. Kids loved kayaking. The house had three kayaks, one canoe, 3 adult and 3 kids life jackets. The weather was perfect, high 80's. We also visited Sunday Lake in Wakefield. Definitely looking forward coming here again. After seeing all the pictures, my daughter friends already booked few days in September. One suggestion to the owner, please add an outdoor table. I'd rather enjoy breakfast/ lunch outside rather than eating inside. Great experience!!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Irma. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Beautiful home. Beautiful property.
Lawrence L. Jan 2020
We stayed during the winter season, and it was absolutely great! The house was beautiful, with all the amenities needed to comfortably relax. The full kitchen was good for making meals, the rooms perfectly fit our family, and the location was isolated -- no concerns about noise, safety, etc.. The views of the sunset over the lake and the clear, open skies at night were breathtaking. Everyone loved the location, from the parents to the kids aged 11-21. As an added benefit, it was only 30 minutes from downhill skiing, which everyone also enjoyed.
George F. Sep 2019
The property is fantastic and well suited for my family of six. The fenced in yard for our dog worked great... and the pristine nature of the area is amazing. Although there are a few homes on the lake, it felt like we were the only ones there — we loved it.
