4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Remodeled Historical Home Located On Lake Minocqua


Property Details

Updated: Oct 8, 2014
4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, Sleeps 12

Come for the cool summers and enjoy all that Minocqua and the Northwoods has to offer. Fishing, swimming, sunning, boating, shopping and relaxing are just a few things you can expect when you lease our wonderful historic home right on Lake Minocqua and the 6,000 acre chain of 4 lakes.

Home was built for Casey Lambert, who was quite a character, (see more information below) in 1906 and has been totally updated.

You can walk to town and the 17 mile hiking, biking and walking Bearskin Trail is nearby. Experience the excellent dining opportunities in the area or kick back, cook out and stay home.

Two large screened porches overlook the lake and our permanent dock where you can tie up at least 3 boats. Kitchen is equipped with every thing you need and all rooms are large and charming.

We are located on over an acre level lot with towering white and red pine trees that are at least 100 years old. Also the private road offers peace and quiet. There is 215' of shoreline with sandy lake bottom. We face Southeast so if the sun is shining, we get it all day!

Two bicycles and two kayaks are available for your use as well as garage parking for two cars and plenty of additional parking.

We also have a cozy one bedroom, one bath guest cottage that is less than 10' from the water's edge available on the property that could be added to your lease for an additional fee.

Come listen to the loons, watch the eagles soar, and create your memories. We know you will love it!

About the Owner

Al and I live in Dallas and fell in love with Minocqua about 3 years ago after vacationing in the Northwoods to escape the summer heat of Texas. We are both still working which is the reason we are making our home available for summer lease. Al is an engineer and after retirement he started an executive search firm (EPC Combine) with a partner. I retired after owning a real estate company for 25+ years and am a Realtor with Ebby Halliday Company. We love all the wonderful things about the area and plan to spend as much time there as possible with our children, grandchildren and friends.

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Remodeled Historical Home Located On Lake Minocqua
Minocqua Northern Wisconsin
Chicago, IL

Beautifully maintained vintage estate

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 10 days at this property in July. It is a spectacular vintage log cabin style home which has been beautifully maintained. The location is perfect as it is close to town but still private and secluded. The home is spacious and well decorated with fabulous authentic Northwoods charm and artifacts. The grounds are perfect for relaxing by the lake, playing bocce ball or horse shoes, or even swinging on a private swing set. The pier is massive and can dock as many as 3 boats. Having grown up here, I am confident that this home represents true Northwoods luxury. The owner is passionate about the home and is committed to maintaining it in pristine condition, and it deserves respect as it is truly a historic home that could never be duplicated.

This is the former home of Casey Lambert, a legend in the area whose friends and guests included Charles Lindberg, Elizabeth Taylor and President Dwight Eisenhower.

The deck on the 3 boat dock allows a spot for enjoying family and friends out on the water.

From the Owner

We chose this property after looking each time we visited the area. Some I loved and Al didn't, some he liked and I couldn't stand! When we walked into this home we both said 'this is it'. It has everything we both wanted; starting with an oversized 3 car garage with craft room for me and work area for Al. It also has a floored second story providing wonderful storage which could be converted into a game room or bunk area for grandchildren. The guest house is adorable, the large lot is beautiful and private. The character of the house is perfect for us and something we were seeking with its open dining room/living room, 2 fireplaces, wood floors, screened porches overlooking the lawn and lake. Kitchen is very up to date as well and the bathrooms. Basement has spot to build wine cave to house 1300 bottles! Perfect for us!
