Make the best vacation memories and call this lakefront gem home! Boasting beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, warm wood accents, vaulted ceilings, and all of the comforts of home, every visitor will be spoiled at this dreamy retreat. Each day will hold unlimited possibilities with a private dock for tying off your boat or swimming in the cool waters of Slaughter Bay. Watch for the bald eagles and other native wildlife or just take a walk among the gorgeous maple trees. When the gang works up an appetite, the well-equipped kitchen has everything needed to whip up delicious meals. Not to mention, the full bar will come in handy for making special cocktails as the sun dips towards the horizon each evening. Gather at the firepit and reminisce with loved ones until the stars come out, and then come inside each night and cozy up in front of the fireplace with a movie on the flatscreen TV until everyone is dozing off to sweet dreams of more fun to be had in the days to come!

What's nearby:
Set back away from it all, this secluded home sits on 13-acres of land in a unique location along the shore of Slaughter Bay. There will be no lack of activities for every kind of guest here, so bring your swimsuit, boat, or take out the three kayaks on the property and make the most of the lake access. When you want a break from the water, beautiful hiking trails can be found surrounding the lake. If you feel like venturing out a bit further, Bond Falls Waterfalls are well worth the 25-mile scenic drive. Come winter, cross-country skiing on nearby groomed trails, ice fishing, and snowmobiling are all great ways to take advantage of the cold weather.

Beautiful place to stay for a weekend reunion with friends.

Words can’t express how wonderful it was to have so much space inside and out for our Family to connect,explore, relax and rejuvenate. Whether taking Little’s out for their first kayaking experience. Watching Grandpa spend hours watching the eagles in their nest across the lake through the telescope or seeing them soar over us while we were on the water. S’mores at the fire pit. Dinner in the house or out on the great deck. Kids in the living room watching TV, while adults enjoying the front room views of the lake. Books, books everywhere! This house and it’s impressive surrounding property will make our list of “must returns”

We had an amazing time at this property! It is beautiful and so much fun for families. Such a charming home with lovely views. The seating was perfection in every space. It was well stocked and we used the kayaks every day. The second dock was great for swimming and we rented a pontoon boat from Hillside so we could take the kids tubing. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us.

The landscaping and view was definitely the BEST. I like that we had just about everything we needed. The main shower was nice and huge. I wish I had one at home. Watching the hummingbirds was a delight. Kayaking with my oldest son was a challenge but, worth a try. Fishing by the dock was better than in a boat. However, a few things which would make it more enjoyable would be get the fridge fixed. It takes a long time to get cold. More channels on t.v. would have been nice. Some bug zappers could be useful. Would love to have had a beach to swim in also. Overall, the stay was relaxing and pleasant. Would love to return one day. Thank you!

The house is located at the end of the road with a lot of privacy and seclusion. There is a paved driveway down to the water with a nice dock and sitting area. It is everything the listing says and more! Cant wait to be back.

This is a great house with great views. Many loons and eagles. The fishing was amazing. We rented a boat from a local resort and had a great time. Will be back and would recommend! Kate

The view was amazing! The house is gorgeous and had everything we needed for a nice relaxing stay. Would 100% book here again!

Great location with a fair price. Home was very cozy and had every amenity you will need during your stay. Plenty of wild life to observe just from the cabin and the dock. And some of the best stars we’ve seen in a very long time. The front lounging room with fireplace alone is worth the visit.

The home had everything we needed for a successful trip!

We absolutely loved this vacation rental. The lighting and gorgeous furnishings made this a very special home. A lot of love went into the decorating. During this pandemic, we brought all of our food to cook rather than going to restaurants. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you could possibly need. The showers were stocked with professional body wash, shampoo and conditioner. I’m very picky when it comes to products, but they were great. The views from this home were fantastic. We were lucky to be there for full color. We weren’t so lucky with the rain. We were able to go on a scenic ride to Bond Falls. The falls were beautiful, I would recommend going there. Vacasa was so helpful with everything. To the owners, Thank You for sharing your beautiful home with us renters, and thanks for letting my little Maltese dog Lola come along. Husbands stayed home so my girlfriends and I had a total girls stay. To anyone wanting to rent this place, go for it, you won’t be disappointed. We will be back.

The view of the lake was beautiful. The house was nice and had all that you would need. The listing says there is air conditioning but there is not. When we arrived there was window air conditioners on the floor in two bedrooms. The lower level is a bit musty smelling. Lake access would be tough for anyone with limited mobility as the path and road are a bit steep.
Manager response:
Tabatha, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake. To clarify, this home has partial AC. We will be sure to pass along your feedback to our local manager regarding the AC units and the smell in the lower level of the home. They will work directly with the homeowner to make any needed updates. We hope to host you again in the future!

2020 has brought so many ups & downs, but that was not the case for Bayside Secret! The night we checked in, storms rolled in & the power was out until the wee hours of the morning. But we had fun simply exploring with flashlights!! The relaxation, friendly people we met, sense of zen while kayaking on the lake & looking out over the water as we ate were the perfect getaway. Thanks to COVID we may not have been able to take our tropical honeymoon, but this was a great & beautiful alternative. We loved it so much, we want to come back with our friends or family! The pictures just do not do justice for this getaway spot. If you’re on the fence, look no further!
