What makes this cabin unique

Because of the bay location, it is nice to have wind coverage and calm water making it nicer to send kids out on the paddleboat without the extra worries of boat traffic and waves.

Getaway on Balsam Lake, WI

Great family house.

  • 4 of 5

The Getaway on Balsam Lake was a great family house. We had 6 adults and 5 children under the age of 8 (one was a baby). Perfect for kids as they had a child bed, a crib, and a pack n play. Plenty of beds for all the others. Also had a highchair. The bedrooms upstairs were set up a little strange, but it all worked out for us. We did walk to the public beach one day with all the kids, which was a short distance. They loved it as it was zero entry and could see some little fish swimming around. Nice for the little ones. The outdoor space at the house was very nice. The kids spent a lot of time on the swings, slide & sandbox. We had a fire one night in the awesome fireplace (wood provided). We had our own fishing boat, but a paddle boat and kayaks were also provided with the house. In addition, we rented their pontoon. The place was clean. Being right on the lake was nice, however, the downside was being in the weedy bay and not being able to actually see the entire lake. Swimming off the dock area was not an option due to the weeds and shallowness. There was a weed-eating machine which came through while we were there and that made the bay much more desirable to look at. The house had a nice sun room with toys for kids and also a nice deck which overlooked the bay. The owners were very good about communicating which is always a plus. All in all, it was a great stay and very kid friendly!

Great location lots of room

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay lots of great memories on the lake. The fire pit at night was lots of fun. This is not a swimming location! Bay full of weeds. Overall you can't beat lake life! Memories forever.

Owner's Response: Dear Justin C., I hope you enjoyed your stay overall. We are upfront in our description about our location in a bay not ideal for swimming. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful big lake! Thanks, Vanasse LLC

Nice clean cabin perfect for large family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our long weekend stay. The cabin has beautiful landscaping and a great view of the bay. Enough room for our huge family and plenty of things to do. The kids enjoyed the playground and the adults enjoyed stand up paddle boarding, pontooning, and fishing. The bay is big enough to be the perfect paddle board playground with zero waves which is nice if you're just learning to paddle board. The fire pit is perfect for evening campfire and comes with a large grate for cooking which we loved.
