The cottage is located on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert Lake in the heart of Wisconsin's Northwoods lake country and the Nicolet National Forest. We are just a few miles north of Eagle River, WI. We are open all year round and offer you a knotty-pine interior cottage that will suit all your lodging and accommodation needs, all surrounded by beautiful and fragrant old pine trees and majestic oaks. There is an abundance of wildlife here, on the lake and in the area. Make sure you bring a pair of binoculars with you - there are a lot of eagle nests all around the lake and you can see and hear eagles and loons every day. You will also see ducks, swans, and otters here. Deer very often visit the area.
We are located on the south shore of Lac Vieux Desert, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River.
Our beautiful lake is famous of its record musky (a World Record Musky was caught here), walleye, northern pike, perch, small mouth and large mouth bass and panfish fishing, and is one of the largest in the state with 4300 acres and 19 miles of fantastic shoreline and 4 islands.
The 610 sq. ft. cottage (located 15 yards from the lake's shore) has 250' lake frontage to be used by our guests. There are two piers on the property to be used by our guests.
For your enjoyment, outside the cottage you will find charcoal grill, fire pit (for weekly rentals we provide an armful of firewood for free), and picnic table. For weekly rentals a 14-foot aluminum, fishing boat with oars is also included to fish the lake or just to relax on the water. We also rent a boat with a motor for $199/week + gas used, or $60/day + gas used. After a successful fishing day you can use our fish-cleaning house to clean your fish and then freeze the fish (if you want) in a big freezer there.
Come stay with us any time of the year and enjoy many wonderful vacation activities in spring and summer such as swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, berry picking, golfing, horse back riding, bicycling, ATV riding, scenic driving and wildlife watching. There is plenty to do in fall and winter, too. You can enjoy watching the northern forests burst into brilliant fall colors as well as hunting, ice fishing, snowmobiling or cross country skiing. The cottage is located on the snowmobile trail and you have access to over 600 miles of Vilas County snowmobiling trails in the Nicolet National Forest.
