About Grant & Brenda

We purchased this cabin new as a gathering place for family (especially for holidays) and friends. It has been expanded, decorated, landscaped and cared for as a personal lake home. It is truly a home away from home with all the comforts together with the beautiful out of doors setting.

Grant & Brenda purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Grant & Brenda chose Northern Wisconsin

It has been expanded, decorated, landscaped and cared for as a personal lake home. It is truly a home away from home with all the comforts together with the beautiful out of doors setting.

What makes this chalet unique

Slim Lake is a pristine, clear water lake with maximum privacy. The shoreline is wooded and lots are typically 150' - 200+' of shoreline. The rustic visual nature is maintained by limiting clearing to 30' between cabin and lake. While it is only 2-3 hours from the Twin Cities, it offers both convenience and beautiful lake country experiences.

Another Week Making Family Memories!

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh year here, and, as always, we had a fantastic time. We caught a bunch of bass and sunfish, kayaked, and relaxed. The house is well appointed with everything you could need for a visit "up north." The screened porch and deck make for wonderful outdoor dining, the fire circle was used for our annual s'mores night, and the fireplaces make for cozy evenings. This house is where we've made so many family memories. Our children used to play with toys in the loft, and now they're learning to beat us at cards after dinner. The house is wonderful for all ages. The location on Slim Lake is near several great restaurants and our gracious hosts are always helpful with new suggestions.

Everything We Needed and Then Some

  • 5 of 5

My four siblings and I and some spouses, nieces, and nephews spent various parts of a week at the McLennan Slim Lake home in early August. The house is spacious, generously equipped and stocked, and was immaculate when we arrived. We've already booked our return visit for 2018. Highly recommended!

Great Family GetAway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place! The lake setting is so beautifully landscaped and private. The cabin is built and decorated to have the upnorth authentic look but has all the quality and comforts to be a lovely year round home! Grant and Brenda make sure our every need is met which makes vacationing a pleasure for the adults and especially easier with our grandchildren. It's been a place for us to slow down and build memories while having lots of fun enjoying all the amenities. We are so thankful they share this 5 star gem with us! We are looking forward to our 7th year coming back in 2018!

An Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, especially for a family and friends getaway vacation. The house has multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces for hanging out and eating. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare all kinds of meals. The grill on the deck overlooking the lake is located conveniently from the kitchen and screened in porch. The entire house is tastefully decorated and everything is in great condition and clean. A set of outdoor stairs take you right down to the lake where you will find a sizable dock. There is a great shallow area for young kids to play. It's a beautiful quiet lake for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. You can also take motorized boats out. Hayward is an easy 30 minute drive for shopping and restaurants.

Best Place to Stay in the North Woods!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is spacious but cozy. We found it private but close to fantastic things our whole family enjoyed. The lake is pristine and quiet and kept us surround with breathtaking views. The kitchen is large and we prepared wonderful meals for our whole family.

The guest cabin and the loft provided ample space for 6 adults and 4 kids.

I'd highly recommend a trip to our new favorite place Schoolhouse Wines or grabbing dinner at Pine Ridge where I had the best fish fry ever.
