The property features 3 secluded cottages (1 main cottage and 2 mini-cabins) on three-acres of lake front property, with over 700 feet of prime fishing shore line on Sanford Lake. The yard features a fire pit, and most yard sports. Relax on the hammock or take a nature hike down a wooded trail. Our property is surrounded by 40 acres of wooded state land. Those 40 acres are adjacent to thousands of acres of wooded state land with trails throughout. We also have a 4-6 person hot tub available for use at an additional fee. The property also has a dock for a Boat, Pontoon, or a Jet Ski.

The main cottage is 1,800 sf with 3 bedrooms, a bunk bed room and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms are located in the third level loft, with all three bedrooms featuring 1 king size bed each. The bunk bed room is located on the ground level. The main cottage sleeps a total of 14 people comfortably (22 persons if both Mini Cabins are Added). The second floor of the main cottage includes a full kitchen & dining area, living room with couches, a 60” TV, DVD player & Wii gaming system, full bathroom, and laundry. The second floor also features multiple outdoor decks and stairs connecting to the hot tub area and other various & unique areas. Main cottage bottom floor has been converted into a bunk bed room (so that we can offer sleeping accommodations with bathroom access on the ground floor). There is also circuit gym, elliptical/stair master machine, and 1 full bathroom.

There are 2 “mini cabins” on the property that are available to rent at an additional price for larger groups: Mini Cabin #1 is approximately 20 feet from the main cottage. Mini Cabin #2 is approximately 100 feet from the main cottage and built close to the water. Both Mini Cabins comfortably sleep 3-4 people. Each Mini Cabin is about 240 sf and feature:

• A full-size futon, recliner, and coffee table on the 1st level

• A queen bed in the loft area

Sanford Lake is perfect for Bass, Northern Pike, Muskie, Walleye, Bluegill, and Perch fishing. There is boat launch a short distance from our property, and at the south end of the lake, there is a large public beach with a great spray park for children. Pontoon, kayak, & canoe rentals are all available nearby.

About Jim Wiseman

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We went down after our wedding with 11 friends. The setting is beautiful, Jim showed us around and everything is great, really well kept.

Plenty of room, comfy beds, the minicabins were great and easily slept four. Jim was always on call and there was no hassle once we left.

Thanks again guys.

Relaxing !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cottage was very enjoyable. We had 10 adults and 6 children aged 6 and under. The beds were comfortable and the linens were freshly washed. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed (Pots, Pans ect..) The property is very large with plenty of privacy . It is on a canal with lake access. Kayaks and a canoe that were provided for our use. The cottage is very nice, all the comforts of home including direct tv, pool table, wifi. When we were outside it was more like a camping atmosphere.The 2 mini cabins are awesome too! Overall, very enjoyable! I would definitely stay here again!

trip with college friends

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a weekend with my college roommates. They all brought their wives and there was more then enough room for 12 of us. The property is comfortable and unique. The fire pit, hot tub, and dart board all saw ample use. It's also secluded enough that you really feel like you are getting away. Jim, the owner, is super helpful and took the time to walk us through the property. It's evident that he cares about it a lot and it was reflected in the the overall quality, upkeep and cleanliness of the pace. Our group talked about making plans to return next year. Great place for kids and adults alike!

Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place for the weekend with a few couples for Valentine's day (8 people was perfect size for staying in during the winter). Was a great getaway cottage for a winter weekend trip. Would love to see it in the summer time as the yard was large and the house was on the lake. With the mini cabins, could easily fit more people.

We were able to use one of the mini cabins and it stayed comfortably warm even in the below-zero temperatures. All of the beds in the home were really comfortable too.

The hot tub was very nice, there was a pool table and darts to entertain us. Big kitchen table that we could all sit and play card games and a few couches with a large TV, movies, and games.

Most of our group went skiing on Saturday nearby and had a great time. Thanks!
