Stayed there in July. Loved the cabin- authentic log home. The great room is sized perfectly and has a beautiful view of the lake. Lots of beds available for sleeping. Lake was clean and picturesque. Very nice/clean restaurant and bar just up the street. Neighbors are friendly. Walk down to lake is steep and posed a problem for one of our party that was disabled, from the picture you cannot tell this is the case. Price was fair although we were charged $60 for electricity at the end of the week in addition to charges for each garbage bag. This should probably just be worked into the cost and not separate. Overall, the owners were very friendly and the cabin was well kept and clean. Were it not for the disabled access to the lake we would come back.

Owner's reply:

Dear Julie,
Thank you for staying at our home with your family. It was very nice to meet your group. We understand that some may think it's easier to lump the electric/garbage cost into the weekly fee, but we can keep the guests charges less overall by keeping a lower weekly rate and charging only for what is used. We also don't charge a cleaning fee, which keeps cost down for guests as well. Again, thank you for staying and for your review.

Every year the 1st week in February we plan out snowmobile trip to Hurley. This year our group was the largest it's ever been so needed to find a place that would accommodate 10 of us. I found this log cabin which looked beautiful with plenty of room. Once we arrived, we were not disappointed at all!! The place was large enough with a large kitchen and large living room for all of us to sit comfortably!! The location was perfect also being right on the lake with easy access to trails. Having the 3 bathrooms was also very helpful with so many of us. I would love to be able to bring my family here in the summer for our summer vacation. Being right on the lake would be the most peaceful setting ever!! I give this log cabin 4 stars because it was that little slice of Heaven we were looking for!! Hope to be able to return again if not in the winter then the summer!! Thank you!!

This lodge was very nice & rustic. Lots of room for everyone. We were very happy when we walked in. The view of the lake was breathtaking. We hit the right time for the fall colors. A little hard to find. All of us are considering renting in the summer so we can use the lake.

We (5 couples) did a combination fishing and atving trip for a week. This was the perfect lodging as we had access to both. The cabin was very roomy and had ample bedrooms and bathrooms to accomadate us. Also just down the road there was a great place to eat and socialize.

A PEACE of Heaven

October 22, 2012

We loved the cabin. It was a perfect get away. We had rain everyday of our 7 day vacation but it was still enjoyable. From the fire place to the bench on the dock. Our three boys loved it. Right on the trails for atv's and snowmobiles. Its a bit of a maze to get to but you find your way. I already have my next stay planned.

Great place and location

We stayed in Von Seda's for our winter snowmobiling vacation. The house is located right on the trail. Inside is very spacious and comfortable, everybody loved it. Mobile phone reception was poor but everything else could not be better. We will be back. Thank you Krista!

We love Von Seda's, this was our second time staying there. It is very roomy, the kitchen has everything you need, and is right on the four-wheeler trail. It's a little piece of paradise!

A little bit of Heaven...

September 24, 2011

Normally, one person from a party writes a review and all is good. Well, VonSeda's was so much like a little bit of heaven that it totally deserves another review by someone else in the same party as the previous review! My siter-in-law did a great job summing up the experience, the amenities, the road to get there and such. I thought I would add my two cents about how much we want to go back. It has been three weeks since our stay and I still find myself thinking about how wonderful it was up there! I just want to go back! If you are looking for a place where everyone can feel comfortable and welcome, this is the place for you. I would also like to add that the owners of VonSedas have been more than kind with their communication through email and the thank you card with a picture of the lodge following our stay! They really want you to enjoy your stay!! Again, it was a wonderful stay and we all hope, the whole family, that we are able to get back there again next year. I have a feeling that VonSeda's will become a family tradition!

Good Time had by ALL!!

September 13, 2011

What a great place...we stayed at Von Seda's for our annual family vacation and had such a great time. The accomodations were perfect for 3 couples and 3 grandchildren. The kitchen,dining and living room were spacious and so pretty and the bedrooms were all good sized and comfy. The kids had fun playing not only outside by the lake but also in the cabin since there is a toy box already full of toys and plenty of room to roam around and watch the geese out the windows. The men got away for a day and went golfing while the women stayed back to enjoy the sun, the food and the kids. We went on paddle boat rides, swam and played in the lake and by the shore for hours. When the kids would go to bed we were all able to just sit and relax in the cabin to chit chat (or watch a Packer game) or sit by the camp fire and roast some marshmellows. The day and nighttime scenery was absolutely beautiful and the way the cabin is set up you really get to take in the beauty throughout the day----windows all over the place facing the lake. (The kids liked to watch Grandpa, Grandma and Uncle Travis drive the boat up to the dock after fishing). I really can not say enough about this place and the enjoyment it gave our family. AND it was my parents 33rd anniversary so to have us all there to dance in the kitchen over breakfast and celebrate their day was so much fun. This is definitely a place to remember and the only words of wisdom I have for visitors is---DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WASHING YOUR VEHICLES BEFORE YOU GO----IT'S A LONG WAY ON GRAVEL ROADS BUT IS SO WORTH THE TRIP. And if you do get to rent this home make sure you meet the next door neighbors, Bob and Marg. They have to be the nicest people you will ever meet. ENJOY YOUR TRIP and THANKS AGAIN KRISTA!!!!!

Cabin was clean and spacious... neighbors great, beautiful setting and lake. Fishing wasn't the greatest, most likely the weather.

Pristine and Beautiful

August 23, 2011

Our family stayed at the Von Seda's Island Lake home this summer. We were extremely pleased with the accomodations. Everything was exactly as advertised (which is rare). There was plenty of room for 7 adults and 3 children. The house was clean and the appliances all like new. We enjoyed being in and on the water. What a pristine setting!! The grandchildren had a blast. The weather was perfect. The only trouble was is we didn't find the walleye until the last day. I did, however, catch the biggest crappie I have ever seen. All in all , a very enjoyable vacation. Hope to do it again!

VonSeda's - Great family vacation

August 14, 2011

My husband and I rented VonSeda’s to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. Instead of a big party or vacation, we decided to spend a week with our kids and grandchildren, 11 in all. I started the search over a year ago when I came across VonSeda’s Island Lake Lodge. I was hesitant only because this was the first time we rented a cabin from an individual. Krista immediately put me at ease. She was very helpful and gave lots of detailed information about the house and what the area had to offer. We found everything she said was true. The house had plenty of bedrooms and space for our group. We could be together in the great room or find a place if we needed to have a quiet moment. The house was clean, well-cared for, and well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. Derek and Krista gave the best customer service when a minor issue arose. We had fun fishing, riding ATVs, swimming, boating, bonfires, game night, and watching a plane take off and land right across the lake. Our stay went beyond what we had hoped this vacation would be. Our group all said they would come back again.

VonSeda's- a Little piece of Heaven

September 16, 2010

Our family of 17 stayed at VonSeda's for a geat family weekend. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and enjoy the cabin and the great outdoors. The lake is beautiful and the 4-wheeler trails are just as pretty. Even the youngest among us,who is 3 years old, didn't want to leave when it was time to go home. All in all, we had a wonderful time at VonSeda's and will someday probably return. P.S. The cabin is gorgeous.

Beautiful vacation site

September 23, 2009

We enjoyed our stay - what a beautiful well-kept lodge. There were 3 couples that stayed and we each had our own floor and were able to share the living and dining areas; never felt crowded. Nice to have so many accomodations provided. Great view from both inside and outside; what wonderful country to take in!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

VonSeda's Island Lake Lodge is BEAUTIFUL! It is clean, big and everything you'd want in an upnorth cabin. The lake is wonderful - great for swimming and fishing. It's quiet, private and peaceful. We enjoyed it very much and would highly recommend it to anyone!

The log cabin and the grounds are absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed swimming in the lake with the kids and the guys did a lot of fishing. There is an eagles nest on an island near by that was unbelievable. We also had a few painted turtles come up on the lawn during the week and lay their eggs. We'd never seen anything like it. Thank you so much for the great time!

We've just returned from a wonderful week at the Vonseda Island Lake Lodge. The online pictures do not do the lodge justice. We were so pleased with the lodge itself and the outdoor area. Everything was so clean and family oriented. There was so much room. We especially enjoyed the large family room with adjoining kitchen. The view and wild life kept us all in awe. The kids enjoyed the paddle boats and canoe. One little grandaughter stated this vacation was more fun than Disney World. The whole family was pleased with the lodge and we thank Krista and Dirk for a great vacation. The Wagner Family

This home is located on a beautiful lake in a quiet wooded setting. There were 8 adults (4 couples) and plenty of room for all. We were in the area on an ATV trip, and the house is located just off a trail, no need for auto travel. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have rented the property for next year and added days to our stay. We highly recommend this vacation home to anyone who wants a quiet escape. Fishing, boating, ATV riding, or just kicking back, this is the place.

I hesitate to share my experience for fear that others will find out what a great place this is. The home is beautiful with plenty of room for our group of 10. It is definitely off the beaten path with a 30 minute ride from the highway on gravel roads, but the beautiful sunrises and sunsets along with the peace and quiet make the ride well worth it. All the folks on the lake are wonderful and eager to help with recomending a restaurant or the best bait to use. Just down the road is a great little roadhouse, Bear Chasers. They have great food and drinks. You can get just about anything there. You can gas up; have lunch; grab some bait and some ice for your cooler. Even if the weather isn't cooperating, the cabin has a pool table, pub darts and plenty of room to spread out. The owners have thought of everything. If you forgot it; they probably have an extra one in the cabin. We had a great time fishing and relaxing but don't tell anybody!
