My husband and I recently rented the cabin, despite it being just the two of us. We had wanted a last-minute getaway and the very limited number of smaller cabins in the area were all booked.
It really did exceed the expectations that we had from the photos. The entire cabin feels newly remodeled and was very clean. It just has a great "Northwoods" feel while having modern conveniences ranging from a washer/dryer to a dishwasher and pretty much any other appliance you'd need. We also appreciated the gas AND charcoal grill available outside. The deck has lovely views of the lake and there is a comfortable patio set there to enjoy said views from.
There were very few people on the lake in the two days we were there outside of a fishing boat or two and a neighbor's pontoon boat that made daily rounds. We LOVED that. Was wonderful to just look out at the water, or take the kayaks/peddle boat out without all kinds of other activity around us. Very peaceful. Perhaps that was due to the timing? Not sure if it'd be that way in the summer.
Location was good - not too far from Minocqua or Tomahawk, but wow ... driving home at night, you'll want to be very cautious as there is wildlife jumping around at every turn. Not a bad thing ... was actually quite nice. But do be careful.
Otherwise, response time was great from Brian and we had all the information we needed before arriving. I will admit that the agreement at-a-glance looked a little daunting relative to clean up expectations before departure which looked like we'd need to get up at the crack of dawn to do it all prior to the 10AM departure time. However, in reading other reviews here before booking, I noted that Brian's commentary was simply that he wanted the cabin to be left in the same condition as when we arrived. We took this at face value and did just that without sweating it too much. True to word, we got our full deposit back.
We would definitely consider returning, but next time with friends to fill the extra rooms!
