About the property

3 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom Sleeps 8

A beautiful 3BR all pine interior cabin located on East side Ten Mile Lake. Beautiful sunsets. Ten Mile is one of a chain of six lakes connected to Lake Chetek. City of Chetek is within 10 minutes by car or boat. The lakes are very gorgeous! Great for boating/pontooning. Also, great fishing. Many dining establishment on the lakes. All known for great entertainment and food especially, homemade pizzas. Two golf courses nearby. The cabin is nestled between many trees. Great lake views from cabin. It has two docks. Medium elevation. Good fishing off the docks. Each of the three bedrooms have a up to date queen sized bed. Two of the bedrooms have smaller beds for children. A new sofa sleeper is located in the living room. Even though we we have a maximum occupancy of 8, a family of 8 can be very comfortable sleeping, because there is a single bed in one of the bedrooms, a queen sleeper in the great room, and a toddler bed in another bedroom. Charcoal grill. Fire pit. A great family cabin!

About Ron Miller

My wife and I are semi-retired. I have been an educator for 45 years. My wife has been in the banking business. We have three grown children and six grandchildren. We have a home in the Mazeppa, Mn area. We decided in May of this year to rent out our cabin. Our grandkids do not want us to sell, so we are renting. Many fun memories at this cabin.

Another "With Concerns" Review

  • 2 of 5

Although the cabin was nice and accommodated our group well for the two week rental, had we known that the lake was not swimmable from the dock due to the severe green and blue algae blooms (slime) we would not have rented it in the first place. We were extremely disappointed in that and also the fact that the dock and stairs to the lake were dangerous and in major disrepair. Swimming from the dock is very important to us, our family members and friends. To be quite honest, I would not even allow my dog to go in the water there. While we appreciate the owners allowing us to rent their cabin, I do feel that we were misled and that the cabin was misrepresented. I have been coming to the north woods my whole life and have been renting myself for 30 years. Never have we had a problem such as this. If I were allowed, I would attach a photo of the slime, but cannot do that here, unfortunately.

We checked out on August 19th. On August 22nd, I received a message from the owner: "Just wanted to let you know we will be adding a clause to rental information that states, if you aren't familiar with the 'Chetek chain of six lakes' they do turn green July and August. Evidently, we have had past renters the past three years that knew the area. For those future renters, they need to know that!” Receiving this message AFTER our vacation doesn’t make sense and doesn’t help us. I then emailed the owner asking for a partial refund on August 22 and have yet to receive a response from him (It is now September 7). I feel that a partial refund is in order. I have filed a property complaint with VRBO/HomeAway.

Owner's Response: We did respond to this traveler through VRBO. VRBO indicated we did not mislead this traveler. We did not give a partial refund to this traveler. We spent many years with our family at this home away from home. Never have we felt we could not swim in our lakefront. In checking with our neighbors next door, they said for ten days the green in the lake was the worst they had seen. It left as quickly as it arrived. They contributed it to a horrific tornado that occurred earlier in the summer.

The cabin was very nice and a very good location to get to downtown. Only a few miles to drive. Seen alot of wildlife. Very nice neighbors.

Good, with concerns

  • 3 of 5

The setting was nice, the cabin was decent and well equipped. The owners were easy to work with. The down side was that the property is in need of some TLC. The top step on the stairs of the deck is rotting and dangerous. There was a swimming raft that could not be used because of disrepair. One of the docks was very dangerous, I had to block it off to keep people from going on it. The steps leading to the lake were also unstable and in urgent need of repair and there was junk on the property along the shore line. I spent several hours one day cleaning the yard of brush and branches. I had to go home for a funeral one day and brought a weed whip back with me to make the yard look decent. It looks as though it hadn't been cut this year. I should also mention that the electrical system is in dire need of updating. I know this is nobody's fault but renters should be aware that the lake in the middle of July was unbelievably green. There was no swimming at the cabin, we had to take the pontoon to the sand bar. I still ended up having a good time. The tiki bar was a blast, and to me was a big selling point. The reason I express concern about grounds is that when renting in the summer, you spend the majority of your time outside. This property has a lot of potential, it just needs Love!

P.S. Jake and Gerri are terrific neighbors!!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property on a quiet part of the lake! They have everything you need. I would recommend bringing dvds when it rains. There is no wifi or cable so a true decompress from city life. Owners are very helpful and answer any questions you have. Look forward to next year!

Very nice and private.

Even though we had to fight the rain it was nice being able to have friends over and play cards at the dinning table while the nice front porch was a great area for the kids to play in.
