Description of the Harshaw vacation home rental
Traditional Northern Wisconsin lake home with gorgeous view of pristine 250 acre lake nestled in the heart of Wisconsin's northwoods. We are located about half way between Rhinelander and Tomahawk and about 20 miles south of Minocqua. The Bear Skin bike/snowmobile trail is minutes away and some of the best snowmobile trails in the northwoods are accessible from the lake. Many of the roads in the area are now open to ATV's and connect to area trails. The house overlooks beautiful Hancock Lake and is surrounded by a nice wooded area with lots of trees. Enjoy watching the local bald eagle and other abundent wild life or hear the loons call late into the evening. If you favor fishing or a lazy ride around the lake we have a pontoon boat for rent and a paddle boat to use. The lake is well know for musky and is plentiful in bass, northern pike, pan fish, perch and walleye. This is a 3 bedrooms Home, two on the upper floor and one on the lower floor. One bedroom has one queen bed the other bedroom on the upper floor has one queen bed and a twin bed. The lower level bedroom has two queen beds.

There is one full bathroom with a shower over the tub on the upper floor and one full bath with a shower on the lower level. The eat in kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a vacation. The kitchen has recently been updated with a ceiling fan/light over the kitchen table, track lighting and new counter tops. The living room is a relaxing area with a TV, fireplace and lots of windows and a patio door that opens to a large deck overlooking the lake. Outside on the deck are relaxing chairs.

A great place to stay

June 24, 2013

We had a great time at this property. The home was clean and well maintained. The owner communicates well, and there were no delays with confirmation, return of security deposit, or otherwise. Very nice experience.

We stayed here last year and again this year. The property is very relaxing. The fishing was a lot of fun. Perch, crappie, blue gill, and bass. Sitting on the deck in the evening and seeing the Bald Eagles fishing over the lake was quite a sight. We filled the humming bird feeders and watched the humming birds come and go all week. We rented the pontoon boat that was available and took numerous rides around the lake. Great time / hope to be back.

Relaxing retreat getaway!

August 16, 2010

This was a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the north woods. The lake was just the right size with not much activity (which we like). Met some wonderful musky fisherman cruising by our dock. The loons kept us entertained and we found the eagle's nest just a couple places to the east of us. My daughter actually saw the pair of eagles. Saw the doe and her 2 fawns cruising the lake one morning and got some great photos. We would love to go back, just maybe earlier when it wouldn't be as warm or maybe in the fall.
