About Kevin

As a native of Wisconsin, Ann dreamed about moving back to her home state and specifically to the Northwoods to enjoy the beauty and peace she loved as a child. In 2014 we took a leap of faith and did just that. There is nothing like the woods, the water, and the weather around our place. "God's country" describes it perfectly!

We have a sincere desire to share the peace, beauty, and tranquility that we enjoy here every day. Everyone who has come here has left rejuvenated!! We invite you to do the same.

Kevin purchased this house in 2014

Why Kevin chose Arbor Vitae

Our home is unique in that when it was built in 1948 for two families (brother/sister) to manage what at the time was known as Little Arbor Vitae Resort. Both floors are completely self-sufficient with full kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and three bedrooms [each]. It is a one-of-a-kind rental property that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated!

Since our purchase of the home, we have continued to renovate and upgrade the home. We are striving to make it as comfortable as possible for all who pass through our doors.

We are surrounded by great hunting, fishing, bicycle & hiking trails, snowmobiling, snowshoe hiking, and cross-country skiing areas. We are right off of Hwy 70, yet tucked in on a beautiful lake, for that genuine rural country feel and experience. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing.

What makes this house unique

This 2 acre property has the only private boat launch on the lake. Docks and trailer parking provided!

Stay "home" and enjoy unlimited outdoor activities--stroll along the lake, enjoy a fire, play yard games, take a bike ride or a jaunt in a kayak. More adventure? Take a short day trip to nearby waterfalls and other lakes.

Epic Northwoods Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we rented a home vs a hotel in the Minocqua area and it did not disappoint. You will not find better hosts than Kevin and Ann. The Chadwick House is in a quiet area with a beautiful view. The home is spacious and clean, and provides many of the conveniences you would have at home, but not in a hotel. Leading up to the trip, Kevin was very responsive to all of our questions. During our trip, Kevin and Ann gave us our privacy, but were readily available. If you are looking for a place to stay with children, this is the place to rent. Kevin and Ann have made sure to provide in the home toys and other activities for kids. We look forward to our return trip in the future!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We love our stays at Chadwick House. The house is clean, comfortable, very nicely decorated, and has everything you could possible need!! I sat by the fireplace looking out at the lake while drinking coffee. My husband caught lots of walleye!

Extremely nice

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment, very nice view of the lake, roomy, well equipped inside and out, close enough to town.

Kevin is a great host, accommodating, informative, friendly. There are kayaks and everything you need to use is right there, don't be afraid if you don't know how to kayak Kevin is a great teacher.

We had some friends visit us for a couple of days they were impressed.

A beautiful place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier. Everything you need is available! The home is beautiful and both Kevin and Ann are so welcoming and helpful.

We used the kayaks and rented their boat. The fire pit was a wonderful way to end our day. We cannnot wait to go back again.
