I absolutely loved the view we had in the backyard. The home itself was cozy and had so much space. Hoping to make it back in the summer without the snow!
Teresa M. Feb 2022
The open floor plan and amenities were great for our family to gather. The location was as described, right on the trails and near restraunts.

Great house. On the lake, we use the two kayaks multiple times. You can kayak down to Dixie’s for breakfast or lunch. Great bike paths.

Location is great. Lake access not so great and the overall condition of the property is not as lovely as the pictures would have you believe. The carpeting was very dirty and worn. However, the location cannot be beat

The place was nice and clean. We had 4 couples stay to go snowmobiling and it was perfect.

We love the area. The house was very nice. The lake is awesome. Very quiet compared to Rest Lake which is on the other side of the dam. The fishing was good also.

Our family had a lovely time on Vance lake. The house was comfortable and well appointed with a spacious backyard and lake access. There were loads of things to do in Manitowish Waters and environs including hiking, biking and swimming. We appreciated the kayaks and canoe too and enjoyed the lake especially at sunset.

We had a great week at Vance Bay Getaway! The house was very comfortable and the kitchen extremely well stocked with every gadget a chef could need. Bring all spices and supplies like tin foil, though, as the house does not stock these items. We loved getting out on the water. Vance Lake is small compared to Rest Lake, but we liked the quiet and the lack of speed boats. We got lots of use out of the kayaks, canoe, and row boat. Life jackets and beach towels were missing when we arrived but management brought them promptly when asked. The garage had four adult and five child bikes. Most tires were flat when we arrived, but we were able to get walk them across the street to the gas station to pump tires. Being able to take daily family bike rides on the beautiful Manitowish Waters bike trails was such a nice bonus! There Is a very pleasant deck with a nice view of the lake and a new grill and propane fire pit. Propane tanks were missing when we arrived, but management replaced promptly when alerted. Overall, a very nice place to spend time, especially with kids and dogs.
