About Mike or Lori

Owner, Healthcare Practitioner, and North Woods enthusiast.

Mike or Lori purchased this house in 1985

Why Mike or Lori chose St. Germain

Once in a life time opportunity to purchase property on the East side of Big St. Germain lake off a private road with 6+ acres of forest.

What makes this house unique

House is off a private road, shared with 2 other homes. We have 200 feet of lake frontage with an amazing screened in porch (do not rent a home in north woods without a screened in porch!). Being on the East end of the lake, we get a constant breeze. This constant breeze keeps you cool and SIGNIFICANTLY reduces the bugs. Our house faces west for breath taking year long sunsets and lake views like no other. The property features the rare find of level frontage & shallow access to the lake with a sand bottom for great swimming. Large pier for all your water toys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lori and Mike - thank you for sharing your lake home with us, we loved your place and took very good care of it. it was laid out perfectly for what we wanted, everything was good, the fishing was not, but that was not our sole purpose! Thanks again and we'll certainly consider a return if it all works.

Fantastic view of lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The dock was great for our boat and we also rented a pontoon boat. Both were easily docked there. The ramp to put our boat in was just a short distance and easy to access. The house was well equipped and even though we planned to eat out some during our week there the kitchen had all we needed and so we stayed at the house more than expected. Our grandkids 10 and 12 enjoyed fishing and wading around by the dock. It is shallow and has a nice sandy bottom. We enjoyed a camp fire and cooking hot dogs. The screened porch with the hammock was nice for relaxing and reading. We enjoyed the area. Very convient for go carting and horse back riding. We also took in the lumberjack show that we had taken our daughter to about 27 years ago. Our grandkids enjoyed that also. We had good cell phone reception and internet. I know most people say “your not there for that” but at night it was nice to have. One day it rained all day and we played board games but I admit at almost 60 I enjoy tv and internet. I really think it has something for the whole family. I hope we are able to visit again next year.

This home is in such a beautiful spot. The home is fully stocked with everything that you could need. Such a quiet and beautiful area. We saw deer gracefully walking through the yard every morning, as well as eagles sitting in the trees of the yard. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place for you.

We would rent this home again.

A wonderful experience in the Northwoods

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in the north woods for many years. This home on Big St. Germaine Lake was a wonderful experience.

The lake is large, deep and clean. The shallow sand frontage enabled our little guy to enjoy swimming in the lake and using his sand toys.

The general slight grade to the house was easy on the knees and grandparents.

The house, situated on the east side of the lake and sitting in a wonderful wooded setting, enabled us to experience beautiful sunsets every day.

The home is comfortable, well appointed , clean and well maintained.

The town of St. Germaine is convenient and the local restaurants are run from simple food to a 4 star level dining.

I would highly recommend this home. A great place to stay.

Clean, comfortable and exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and truly enjoyed our first visit to northern WI. The home was set up well for our needs and we were immediately "at home" upon arrival. Bring your own food, clothing and fishing gear and know that the rest is available upon arrival. The owners provided ever possible accommodation and their welcome binder was full of helpful information on the home, the community and local attractions. The folks in town were very friendly and anything we forgot to bring was available with local shopping. The fishing on Big St Germain was tough but we were able to catch all the fish we wanted in several smaller local lakes.

We had a great time. Has all the amenities of home. Loved the AC with it being 90 degrees the week we were there. House is set up perfect for a family with small kids. The pocket door to the 2 bedrooms is nice for quiet while the kids are sleeping. The refrigerator is awesome. Nice big size. We didn't even need the coolers we brought along. The kids had a blast jumping off of the pier into the water.
