We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It is surrounded by the Northern Woods and right on a lake. The "beach" wasn't quite as wide as it looked in the pictures, but it is a nice, shallow lead-in to the lake. We were there in October, so the leaves were falling and the weather wasn't the greatest, but it was still a nice and relaxing stay. The house is well equipped, and the property management company is doing a great job - they are friendly and responsive. There is one drawback to being away from it all in the woods - the internet isn't the greatest. It's adequate for e-mails and the like, but if you have teenage kids who want to stream things, that would probably not work very well. So that's the price you pay for being away from it all. TV reception is fine, though. All in all, it is a nice little place to get away from it all and pretty close to Phelps and Eagle River for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

Beautiful place to stay with a sandy beach, kayaks and fire pit. Quiet and relaxing. Three bedrooms, 2 full baths, spacious kitchen and living room that has two pull out couches. Also has a washer and dryer. Everything you need to have an enjoyable vacation with family and friends.

The home was very spacious and clean. The sand beach area was a great hit with the kids, and the kayaks were a super big hit with all 6 kids, all learning how to Kayak in a day. (Ages 4,5,6,7, 13,14). Totally love the Home

Last year when I booked this home in the middle of the Pandemic I had hoped it would be a great place for our family to come together and spend a lovely week relaxing on a quiet lake. It was all of those things and more. The house had every amenity you could hope for, lovely rooms, a beautiful location with a lake that was clear and quiet (very few other boats all week long). It's a great location and a restful place to spend much needed quality time together!

Kitchen was stocked , well thought out with any possible needs provided. Deck/dock to water was amazing and we absolutely loved the sand area and shallow water with our granddaughter. House was very inviting and felt like home. Definitely will consider staying here again. The only recommendations we would suggest is boat cleats on the dock. There also was only 2 paddles for 4 kayaks so we only were able to utilize 2 at a time.

Perfect! Just perfect! From board games to kayaking to swimming...always something to do. The property is centrally located so you can visit many different towns and experience different restaurants as well as family activities.
Just bring your clothes, your family, food and you are good to go! Nothing else is needed.
This was a great way to celebrate my Son's 9 year cancer FREE anniversary.
We hope to stay here again in the future.

The cabin was very clean, we had plenty of room for 8, and the sandy beach was the perfect play spot for our toddler. We enjoyed our stay and plan to be back!

Our family got together from across the Midwest...Chicago, Bloomington and Cedar Rapids.... what a great place to meet. This was our return trip... we liked it so much last fall we recommended it to our siblings for a get together. The house was clean and inviting when we arrived. Our first day, we went North to Bond Falls... a great waterfall. We hiked up to the top on both sides.... great pictures. Had dinner at Chef Rene's... great food. Second day we had lunch at the new brew pub in Eagle River... Craftsman's... great beer selections and food.... flatbread pizza's were great and the pulled pork sandwich was amazing. Dinner back at the lake house... charcuterie and wine... played cards to close the day. Third day out the door and headed back home. Would come back again.

Briar's Hideaway is a wonderful home that came fully equipped with all the tools and comfort to enhance the stay. We really enjoyed the quiet and convenient lake view and access. Will definitely try to book again.
Kimberly L.Jan 2021
Wonderful home we loved how convenient it was to access the lake for ice fishing right from the property. With access to the garage it made it much nicer to load all the gear. Hope to return soon

Enjoyed the stay.

This home is exactly what is pictured. It is a well equipped, quiet home and neighborhood, with great amenities one could ask for. We will be staying here again. Our children loved the access to the beach and the home was well stocked with provision to make our stay welcoming. This is an EXCELLENT place to stay and have fun!!

Briar's Hideaway was very welcoming. The property was fantastic. We brought most of our meals and we enjoyed preparing them. Everything we needed was in the kitchen for us to use. We grilled beef tenderloin steaks on the new grill... came out mouth watering. We could tell a great deal of thought went into making this retreat house comfortable for us and other families. Everything was clean and inviting. We sat on the back deck and enjoyed the lake view with our evening beer or glass of wine. One day we took a drive into Michigan to walk some trails and viewed the Bond Falls.. a must see. We will be back.

We loved our little getaway to Phelps, WI. We went during the fall and loved all the colors. Next year we’d love to go back during the warmer months. Our house was clean, organized and felt like home as soon as we got there. We loved having our own private lake access. So much fun and memories made! Thank you!
Jennifer L.Aug 2020
Very relaxing - very quiet - water is crystal clear - the kayaks were a plus - beautiful scenery

Perfect family getaway-nestled in the woods with all the amenities of home and more. Location is perfect so if you needed to run an errand not far to go. Weather was perfect for our week so spent most of the time outside swimming, kayaking. Look forward to a return trip soon.

Very well equipped and cozy. Would stay again. Responses from Vacasa however were slow.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Shelly! We are so glad that you enjoyed the coziness of this home. We apologize for the difficulty you experienced reaching a member of our team. We hope to host you again soon!
