Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Pickerel - Pickerel PleasantView Cottages

Located in Pickerel, WI, this recently remodeled cottage sits 25 feet from the water's edge. The property has some of the best swimming frontage on the lake. This 1300 acre recreational lake is also great for boating, skiing, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Pier and paddle boat available for use; some flotation devices available.

The bedroom has a queen size bed with window seat for storage during your stay. Living area has a queen size fold out couch. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you should need during your stay, including a couple basic spices.

The cottage has a large 14 x 16 ft deck with ample seating perfect for viewing all lake activities including both sunrises and sunsets. A large fire pit for roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories sits a couple steps from the cottage.

Don't feel like cooking? Take a short walk down the road to the Final Lap where you can get a cold drink, great pizza, chicken wings, burgers, etc. They also offer movie rentals and a place to play a couple games of pool or darts or participate in karaoke every other Saturday evening.

Guests will need to bring their own bed sheets, and bath and kitchen towels. Some blankets and pillows are available. Guests will want to bring their groceries with them as the closest full size grocery store is a 30 minute drive. A well stocked convenience store for last minute items is 5 miles away.

We want every guest to arrive to a clean and welcoming cottage. Guests are asked to clean and put away all dishes and take leftovers home. Guests are required to take their trash to the local recycling center on the way out of town.

Guests with pets should consider the following house rules: 1) pets are not allowed on any furniture; 2) pets should not be left unattended in the cottage to reduce risk of damage; and 3) pet waste should be cleaned up and disposed of promptly. We have a large enough yard for dogs to play in. PLEASE be a good neighbor and ensure pets stay in our yard and off of the neighboring properties.

Need more room? Additional sleeping space available in 30 ft camper on premises. A separate couch and kitchen seating area convert to sleeping space. There are no working restroom facilities in the camper. Additional rental costs apply. Please call 608-516-0489 for more information.

About Bob & Kerry Hanko

We bought this property because for more than 25 years we have enjoyed time with our children and extended family in the area. This property allows us to continue the tradition as our family grows and we can watch our grandchildren enjoy the same experiences with cousins as our children did with theirs while growing up. We have several family and extended family members that also own cottages on the lake so the area provides a place for us to get together throughout the year.

Bob & Kerry Hanko purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Bob & Kerry Hanko chose Northern Wisconsin

We selected this property because it is closer to the water than almost any other property on the lake. The property was the original resort on the lake in the early 1900s. The property has both the original office/lodge (aka Dragonfly Lodge) and one of the seasonal cottages (Summer Cottage) on the premises. Both buildings needed some updates and TLC - two challenges we were willing to face. We are still working on the Dragonfly Lodge, but the Summer Cottage is ready to share with others. I love this little cottage and could spend my entire summer sitting on the deck watching the boats, ducks and eagles going by and listening to the loons every evening.

Lovely cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It was SO nice to be right on the water and wake up to the lake. We fished, played games, watched movies, met some people at the local bars. It was great to be away from home but still have the cozy feel. Also I loved the fully usable kitchen so we could cook when we didn't feel like going out. The leaves were just starting to change so the views were awesome. We will definitely be back!

A very pleasant and relaxing four days

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was just as nice as the picture and I loved that it was fully stocked. My friends and I enjoyed ribeye steaks on the grill and along with it was a picture perfect sunset. I loved the geese, hearing the call of the loon and the friendly chipmunk scampering around. Bob and Kerry, your cottage was wonderful. Thank you! I definitely want to come back next year.

Sincerely, Becky

Relaxing trip for the end of summer...

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting on VRBO and staying at a lake cottage - I couldn't have been happier. The cottage was very clean, comfortable, and well furnished for a home away from home trip. We caught fish on the lake and was delighted to have a fish cleaning station outside the cottage. Very peaceful and beautiful at Pickerel Lake.

Beautiful quiet lake,sailing was great,very relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the beauty of the lake. It is mostly a fishing lake so was quiet and peaceful especially during the week. The cabin was neat,clean and cozy, just as cute as pictured. It was very comfortable for the two of us. Hope to come back again.

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Hanko's Summer Cottage! It was just as the information on the site said it would be. It was well stocked, clean, and ready for us to simply enjoy our stay. During our week long stay we enjoyed soaking up the sun on the patio, fishing from the pier, and watching the birds (ducks, geese, eagles, loons). Bob and Kerry were very friendly. We really have no complaints or concerns. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and family. And we can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed our week at the cabin. Very comfortable bed and sofa sleeper! The cabin was well stocked and the owners and neighbors were very nice. Caught enough fish for a fish fry!

It's just what we expected from the pictures and the owners were vey accommodating.

Thanks, Bob and Kerry!
