Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Minocqua, part of the Minocqua chain of lakes, this newly remodeled, completely furnished, 3 bedroom with Loft, 1.5 bath A-frame chalet accommodates 8 while providing all of the understated warmth and charm characteristic of the Northwoods lifestyle.
Nestled on a gentle slope and across 100 feet of shoreline, our chalet looks out upon pristine water and a completely natural landscape, with its southeast exposure providing some of the most beautiful sunrises the Northwoods has to offer while just a 5 minute walk from quaint downtown Minocqua.
A massive deck overlooking the lake with built-in deluxe gas grill, outdoor beverage refrigerator and beautiful furniture provide easy access to food and beverage whether entertaining on the deck or just hanging with friends in the large Adirondack chairs scattered around the fire pit.

I first fell in love with Minocqua when a college buddy invited me to spend a week with he and other college friends on Lake Minocqua back in 1978. Ten years later, my wife Diane and I purchased this particular property for our family. Our grown children spent 23 full summers with mom "at the lake" and me flying up on Thursday evening and back on Sunday night to our home in Peoria, IL.
Randy J. Africano purchased this chalet in 1988
This unique property has the best there is to offer in the island city. Unlike many homes on the Minocqua Chain, it looks out on the natural landscape of the lake without seeing any manmade structures other than lake homes. Second, the house is on city utilities unlike the vast majority of lake homes in the community. And while the rear of the home looks out on wooded property, the home is located a simple 5 minute walk to everything the town of Minocqua has to offer... parades, ski shows, shopping, restaurants and night life.
If you are a pilot/aircraft owner and are considering flying to Minocqua via private plane, we are more than happy to provide you with a courtesy car of the length of your stay as well as private hangar space for your aircraft.
We were looking for a place in Minocqua during the Christmas season. We found this beautiful place. The highlights for us were the high end finishes, comfortable atmosphere and wide open living space. It was so close to town and all the amenities. We had so much fun shopping, taking a horse drawn sleigh ride, cozying up in the local bars and restaurants for some holiday cheer! It was equipped with everything we needed to have a wonderful time. Thanks for letting us enjoy your property.
The cabin is warm, inviting, and a beautiful place to stay. This tip was for a mom's weekend away, but my family would love it there also.
Thank you Diane, for letting us stay at your amazing property! You were very accommodating and made our stay easy for all us moms! Everything we needed was there....kitchen and bathroom supplies, campfire, ect.
Thank you again!!
My family and extended family visited this chalet in late July and had beautiful weather almost everyday. However, there were a couple of days that we wish A/C was available due to the unseasonably muggy and hot weather for Northern Wisconsin. The home is on a quiet area of lake Minocqua, so you don't have to worry about high speed boats coming right by your dock. It truly is a 5 minute walk to downtown and walkable to the closest boat landing. I would recommend this location for a medium sized group of people that are probably adults, due to the very nice finishes of the house. Everything we needed was available either onsite or at a nearby store. It is a very good price for the location and the quality of the home.
We rented during a quiet time on the lake late March. We enjoyed the location of the cabin as the kids could walk to town, yet had a beautiful eastern view of the lake with wonderful sun rises. The cabin is fully equipped for a comfortable stay (nice choice of DVD's, games, well equipped-open kitchen, linens, great decks, grill, fire pit). Owners very attentive to details for an enjoyable experience. Beautifully decorated and perfect for settling in for a Downton Abbey marathon :) ! We would rent again without hesitation.
If looking for a peaceful northwoods getaway Randy and Diane have just the place. A few minutes walk from downtown Minocqua this lake front home is a perfect family location. This beautiful A frame is comfortable and welcoming and the view from the family room and deck is brilliant. The home has an open floor plan with a living room, dining area, and beautiful modern kitchen complete with stainless appliances and Keurig coffee maker. There's plenty of seating inside and outside on the huge deck enough to accommodate a large family. The bedrooms downstairs are comfortable and quiet.
Fishing enthusiasts won't be disappointed by the plentiful perch, sunfish, bass, and cats without ever getting into a boat. Whether into fishing, water sports, or just cruising the lake this is the perfect location to tie up. Close out your night roasting marshmellows and making S'mores around the large fire pit down by the water.
We can't thank Randy & Diane enough for opening up their home. Looking forward to bringing the rest of the family back soon.
We have a new 2 and a half hour zip line experience just 5 minutes south of town... $105 per person. The Min-Aqua-Bats ski shows are free and they perform every Wednesday, Friday & Sunday at 7PM June thru Labor Day. Check out minocqua.org for additional activities.

Our home is not equipped with air conditioning and this is very common in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Also we have a fire pit near the lake for family gatherings and we supply firewood.
