Beautiful timber frame home on heavily wooded lot located on Squirrel Lake in Minocqua, Wisconsin that features a large, fully-equipped modern kitchen, double-sided fireplace, jacuzzi hot tub, upright piano, Direct TV, and internet. Outdoor features include a grill on the covered front porch, a bonfire pit and a three-sided pier / dock on the water, two single-place kayaks, snowmobile ramp in the winter, and our own Little Free Library at the end of the driveway.

The space
The Squirrel Lake Hideaway was built in 1997 as a place for family and friends to gather and spend time with each other in the natural beauty of the Minocqua, Wisconsin area. Our family and friends enjoy the seclusion of the property, observing abundant wildlife, and spending time on the water. On a clear summer night, we gather around the campfire and marvel at the beauty of the stars above, as well as the reflection of stars on the water. In the winter we enjoy snowmobiling and cross-country skiing at Minocqua Winter Park.

Other things to note
(1) Families who visit with children need to watch them closely as the lot is heavily wooded, is on the water, has abundant wildlife (including bears), and the house is not child-proofed.
(2) We are only able to do reservations for 7 days or more due to local zoning laws.
(3) Unfortunately, we are unable to host your family pet(s) at this time.
(4) There is a security system at the house, with a single camera pointed down the driveway for security purposes. After we confirm your arrival, we put the camera in "Privacy Mode" for the duration of your stay.
(5) Our Response Rate is 100%, not 80% as the sidebar indicates from AirBNB. We have learned that the browser we were using was resulting in their platform not acknowledging our responses. Contact us and we get back to you right away. We look forward to hearing from you....

My family and I live in the Madison, Wisconsin area and have enjoyed many seasons at our Squirrel Lake Hideaway, and hope you will as well! My mother and my father, an American Airlines pilot for many years, originally bought the property as a retirement home, but never retired there, and it is now used exclusively a vacation home. My mother and I designed the home, and my twin brother, Don, built the house. The home is filled with treasures from around the world; numerous arts and crafts, including murals and homemade stained glass fixtures and lamps, made by family members and friends; and an extensive account of Squirrel Lake History with numerous photos from yesteryear. My mother's father, my grandfather, had fished many years on Squirrel Lake in the 1940s and 50s, and you will find one of his fishing poles in the great room....
