From reading at night by the fireplace to relaxing by the outdoor firepit. It was also nice to drive to Minocqua WI and check out all the restaurants and stores.

Cute place, clean and well equipped. The fire pit was great. They even had long forks for roasting marshmallows.

Enjoyed our stay. We loved hearing the loons during the night on the lake. Very peaceful and quiet. Would definitely book again.

From the time we opened the front door we were in love! It was such a cozy little place. The house was perfect and right out the back door was a beautiful fire pit area with tons of biting fish off the dock. We took advantage of all this place had to offer. Our first cabin get away with our kids and everyone was sad to leave-which means the trip was a success! Thank You for the opportunity to create the memories we did, they will last a lifetime!

Loved the home! Only issues were no wi-fi the entire stay, no condiments or regular coffee pot, no human-to-human communication. I messaged on VRBO 5 days prior to see if I could check in early and nothing back?
Manager response:
Hi, Ryan! We appreciate you choosing to stay with us and apologize we have been slow in returning communications due to an unusually large volume of emails. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and are grateful for your feedback. Hopefully we get to host you again for an even better experience. Thanks!

My fiance and I stayed here 3 nights and could have easily stayed the whole week. From the sunrise over the lake each morning to the cozy fireplace at night. We loved this place. My fiance hit his head on the light in the entryway several times though and I barely missed it with my hat on. Not for tall people; fiance is 6'8" and I'm 5'11". The other negative was after getting help from Vacasa with the fireplace they still sent someone over to look at it but didn't tell us. We weren't there when they came, figured it out by the tire tracks and the fireplace left on. We didn't like that someone was there with our stuff when we weren't. Overall this is a great place.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Cozy and comfy. Extremely clean and tidy. Little wall mounted shelves as bedside tables would make it even better as there is no convenient place to set things while in bed. Kitchen is well appointed. Bring k cups for coffee. We snowmobiled from the cabin. Good driveway space for trailer and sleds. A bit of a road ride to the trails. But not bad! Gas close by. Great for a winter retreat.

We loved this place, cozy but with all the amenities. Great location alongside the frozen lake, where were were able to go cross-country skiing and watch ice fishers. A couple comments:
- There was a VERY strong scent of air freshener when we arrived, which unfortunately triggered a migraine for me. I am not ultra-sensitive; I'd advise anyone who may be bothered by this to ask ahead of time that the cleaning crew not use the freshener scent.
- How to control the fireplace was not apparent - we didn't want to leave it on overnight and it was turned on when we arrived. There is a red switch under a base panel that folds down to turn it off.

Cozy and inviting, definitely a home away from home.

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay here the last week in September. This cabin appeared completely remodeled with beautiful furniture, decorations and new appliances. The details make it feel warm and cozy! The big deck overlooking the lake and awesome firepit is a huge bonus for outdoor enjoyment. The canoe provided a peaceful adventure around this quiet lake!! We would love to come back again!!
Jennifer B. Sep 2021
Very cozy and welcoming cabin. The setting was beautiful and peaceful. Appreciated the use of the canoe, which was a very nice one.

The Cottage was very nice. It was very clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We were, however, unable to get the TV to work. We called for assistance but never heard back from anyone.

This cabin has recently been refurbished. It has a great cozy atmosphere, with a well equipped kitchen. There is even a washer/dryer in the bathroom, which was an added bonus for drying damp beach towels. The bedrooms are on the small side, but you don't book at cabin at the lake, to sleep all day!!! We enjoyed our time a the lake, it is a little bit of a drive if you are vacationing up in Minocqua.
Malorie S. Jul 2021
Beautifully updated cabin with everything you’d ever need! Two nice bedrooms meant for sleeping in. Huge kitchen. Spacious bathroom. All recently updated. Giant yard with a great fire pit. Close enough to Minocqua to enjoy it but far enough away to not have to deal with the craziness. Serene and peaceful at night.

Be careful booking this place, cuz once you are might never want to leave! This was a great experience and a wonderfully tidy, updated cabin. Peaceful & serene setting. Looking forward to a return visit someday soon.

A long weekend in a quiet, peaceful setting was how my adult son wanted to spend his birthday. The cottage was welcoming and clean. The fishing was excellent from the dock and the canoe ride around the lake was great. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable getaway!

The cabin was clean with comfortable furniture and beds. It had very nice furnishings. The lake is very quiet, great for kayaking and fishing. The temps were in the 90s when we were there and the house got very hot because there is no air conditioning. Luckily we had brought along some fans and also found one in a closet. Also the WiFi is terrible, don’t plan on streaming anything.I wish I would have brought a book lol. Other than that it’s a great little get away, very quiet and relaxing.
