2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 7
Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin
Our cottage is on the South Shore of one of the largest Wis-Mich Border Lake called Lac Vieux Desert (19 miles of shoreline, 4 islands, 4200 plus acres!), in the heart of the Nicolet National Forest, just North-East of Eagle River. Outdoor enthusiasts may choose to fish (Lac Vieux Desert is known for the world record Tiger Musky along with walleye, pike, perch , large and small mouth bass and many other species of pan fish) as we have a level approach to the lake with 3 piers. The cabin had been part of a resort that was turned into a Condominium, with private owners in the individual cabins and the 'big house'. Our cozy lakefront cottage is directly on the water. There is a public boat launch that you can see from the front yard which is less than a mile away. Partners Kurt & Lynn separately rent their Pontoon and fish... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at the cottage. For us, it was a peaceful, quiet place to just sit back and relax, away from the everyday hustle back home. The cottage itself had everything you could need. The beds are comfortable, and all the linens were supplied. Plenty of space for 2 or even 7 people. We found the...

If there is one negative it would be that no directions on how to get to the cabin, was sent to us. It was not easy to find. On the positive side the cabin is close to the lake with a beautiful view from the large window in the living room. The kitchen had every thing you need, and the...

The cabin is well maintained, very clean, has a great view of the lake. You can fish for bluegills and perch off the docks all day, you might get a few crappie and other species here and there too. Overall, I'd definitely stay there again, but next time I'll bring a boat.

About the neighbourhood
In the great North Woods of Wisconsin, the Nicolet National Forest, at the border with the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on the South Shore of Lac Vieux Desert, a 4200 plus acre lake which is the headwaters of the Wisconsin River, Northeast of Eagle River, Southeast of Land O'Lakes with a mailing address of 2280 Gunderson Lane, Phelps, Wisconsin 54554, East of Highway 45 on County Road E to South Shore Drive to Gunderson Lane. The cottage used to be part of the McPartlin's Resort and was developed into condominiums several years ago. The road signs pointing the way to 'McPartlin's Resort' along County Highway E continue to exist.
Getting around
As to restaurants, you will no doubt enjoy eating at the Hillside restaurant, a short distance west on South Shore Drive. We love the young couple and their young children that own and run Club 45 on old Highway 45, just South of where County E intersects Highway 45 (serves late). We can also suggest Dublin's on K between Phelps and Conover for a little younger feel and good food. There are other restaurants in both Phelps and Land O'Lakes that are worth trying. Redman Supper Club on 45 just before you reach County B, the main Street of Land O'Lakes and Brews Pub and the Pine Cone Cafe (breakfast & lunch) on County B in Land O'Lakes all have great food as does the Gateway (historical lodge used by Al Capone) which is also on B.
