Area Information
According to the Minocqua Chamber of Commerce:

The greater Minocqua area could qualify as water sports heaven. It is a part of what is known as the Lakeland Area of Vilas and Oneida Counties, so named because more than 3,200 lakes, streams and ponds are found in the two counties. World-class fishing, leisure boating and water-skiing are among the popular pastimes here. Off the water, there’s an impressive network of trails for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. For an overview of the wildlife and striking local habitat, visitors can cruise through the spectacular Willow Reservoir. If you’re traveling with kids, there’s plenty to do here. A trip to the Art Oehmcke Fish Hatchery in Woodruff is always fun – lots of big muskies and northerns to ogle. At Wildwood Wildlife Park they can pet a porcupine or feed deer. Sheer’s Lumberjack Shows are awesome demonstrations of log rolling, chopping, sawing and climbing.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Bethany July 2016

We had a lovely time at the lake! It's a nice, very private, quiet spot!! Lots of room for a whole family with lots of space for everyone. The views from the cabin are lovely. We rented a paddleboard from a nearby company and loved taking it out on the glass-like water. Saw lots of wild life including beautiful bald eagles. Cabin is great proximity to Minoqua, Woodruff, and St Germain. Would highly recommend this spot!

The cottage was in great shape. Nice, clean, and plenty of space for our family of five. Our kids loved fishing off the dock and catching endless panfish! Good location to enjoy many outdoor activities in the general Minocqua area. I'd recommend this cottage to anyone.

The Girard Family - July 2, 2016
We had a great stay! Our kids caught a ton of fish and we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The location was perfect for all of the 4th of July activities we wanted to attend. We hope to be back again next year! Thank you!

Hansen & Keel Family - May 30, 2016
We had a wonderful time. The views are outstanding and the cabin is beautiful. Caught lots of panfish and northern pike.
Will definitely make the trip again in the future.
