“A nice place and a good value. Come for the quiet and the stars”

Hi All, I will get the bad out first, these cabins were made in the 20s and could probably use a deep clean and a few upgrades. But it is a cabin and met our expectations. The area is very nice and the owners couldn't have been nicer. Jim and Barb are very nice the their dog cookie is also quite sweet. The cabins sit on a small inlet of a large lake, there is quite a bit of wildlife in the area so you know you are in the northwoods. Loons, Eagles, Ducks, turtles, frogs, toads, herons, A Merlin, and many other birds. Deer crossing the roads, and even Bear(don't get freaked out). We stayed at the Artbus which if you have young kids I would recommend as it is the one closest to the swing set, and has a screened in porch and a nice King Sized bed. You are close to both St.Germain( great bike trails) and to Eagle River. Both are nice towns, not to big yet and not to small either. There are boats for you to take out, canoes and paddle boats. The stove is a bit dated but again it worked and its a cabin. The fridge was great and there was always hot water for the shower. The owners also run a small northwoods bar which had very fair prices, and anytime we walked in there were people eating so the food must be good even though we didn't eat there. They have a good selection of food and drinks. People were commenting on how good the pizza was. Jim is also the cook. :-) Barb is great to get back to you with questions so ask away.

Hi David - Thank you for staying with us - we enjoyed meeting your family, and I'm sure Jerry will remember Mr. Bear for a long, long time! We're glad you had a good time - we'll get out there and inspect the bathroom!! I know, as far as kitchen utensils, many times when we have the same family rent all 4 cabins, things get moved around from cabin to cabin, and not put back, so some cabins have more and some cabins have less. But we will definitely do an inventory soon! Thank you for your review and we hope to see you back again sometime.

We absolutely loved your family - very friendly and fun, and all so full of life! I smiled so much when I saw you all out playing in the yard and on the lake in the rain when it rained all day on Saturday! Hopefully you can make it up again soon.
And thank you so much for sending along the pictures! Love them!
