Loonsight is a charming property nestled in a quiet bay on Tomahawk Lake. This dog-friendly home is surrounded by beautiful forests, lakes, and wetlands. It features everything your family and guests could want in a secluded, fun, and relaxing getaway. Grab a canoe, kayak, or paddle-board from the boathouse and go join the eagles and loons on the lake. On rainy days, there's plenty of space inside to read, listen to music, play games, craft, or watch your favorite show on any of the three TVs. The main level features a large living room with plenty of cozy nooks around the fireplace. The adjoining dining room and kitchen area have ample space for entertaining. Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast on the spacious furnished deck space, which looks directly out onto the lake. The two upstairs bedrooms each have an attached bathroom, one of which has the added comfort of a whirlpool bath. The downstairs spaces are perfect for a second family or additional guests. It features a large living space, two bedrooms, one with an attached bath. There is also the added bonus of a large play/craft room with a foosball table and an extra refrigerator for cold drinks or additional food. The downstairs area leads out to a path for a quick walk to the lake. Enjoy gathering around the lakeside firepit at night for the peace and solitude that will bring you back to the great Northwoods every year!

We loved that we felt tucked away on lake tomahawk, didn’t think that was possible. Lots of privacy. Enough beds for everyone and plenty of space both indoors and out. Canoe, kayak and swim pad was put to good use. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Had a wonderful time with my parents, sister, wife and two boys (ages 5 and 8). House was plenty big enough for everyone to have their own bed. Grill was great as we ate in several times as the kids would get tired from all of the lake time. Lake Tomahawk is a big lake, lot of fun going on boat cruises in the afternoon. Rented a pontoon boat for fishing, but it turned out the best place to fish was at the end of the pier. As soon as you through a line in, a fish was caught. Kids loved it. Plenty to do in town as we miniature golfed, saw a lumberjack show and got ice cream. Would recommend this home and would hopefully stay here if the home was available next time we are in Minocqua.

Well maintained, private, and comfortable.

Loonsight is in a great location on Lake Tomahawk, in a quiet bay away from boat traffic. The home was very clean on our arrival and the kitchen was stocked well with everything we needed. The queen beds upstairs were comfortable, but the full size beds downstairs were a little too firm for the adults in our group. We had 3 toddlers in our group and had hoped for a beach area, but the shoreline is too rocky and weedy. We found a great sandy shoreline on the south shore of the lake plus there is always Torpy Park in Minocqua. There are lots of toys for the kids in the lower level. Beware the stair spindles are too far apart to keep small children safe. We do plan on reserving next year and will probably rig something up to make the stairs safer. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the home and appreciate the owners allowing us to bring our dogs.

Great Location (End of the road so very private) with large lot and very quiet.

Home had everything you needed.

Extremely comfortable for large family.

We stayed 9 days and wished it was longer!

The cabin was very exciting and relaxing at the same time. The décor is fantastic. You can tell the home had been lived in and loved for many years. The outside is nicely kept up and it is a safe and easy walk down the path to the water.

Loonsight is a wonderful home with plenty of space to spread out. Indoor accomodations are well cared for and comfortable. Outdoor opportunities are in abundance - kayaking, fishing, bike riding, relaxing by the firepit, etc! Very private grounds and pet friendly! Cute downtown area with great food and shops. Highly recommend and will be visiting again!
