Situated perfectly between St. Germain and Eagle River is this beautiful and private lake home, with 3+ bedrooms and two large bathrooms, located on a one-acre, stunningly wooded private lot. Echo Lake is part of the famous Sugar Camp Chain of Lakes, which also provides Class A Musky fishing – hosting numerous fishing tournaments. Other accessible lakes include Dam Lake, Sand Lake, Stone Lake, and Chain Lake – comprising 2,300 total acres of water surface. This secluded setting is located on the west side of the lake, with approximately 120 feet of private shoreline, and provides gorgeous views of the lake, woods, and sun rises. A large, newer private pier overlooks the lake with a sandy shoreline offering gentle sloping, non-weedy swimming. For those interested in winter activities, we are very close to the Bo Boen & Eagle River 500 trails, providing hundreds upon hundreds miles of well maintained trails. Just 2.3 miles from our house to the trail entrance -- accessible through low-traffic subdivision roads!

Check-in: 3pm

Check-out: 9am

6 person maximum

Our home has spectacular scenery from all rooms on the main floor and the finished walk-out lower level. The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, large family room with TV and wood burning stove, sun-room, master bedroom, large bathroom (with stand-up shower & large separate bathtub) , and laundry room. There is a large covered deck on the back of the house, which is perfect for sitting outside (sun, rain, or snow). First floor sleeping accommodations include a king-sized bed and two twin (trundle) beds in the master bedroom with very large walk-in closet, and a queen-sized futon (and dresser) in the sunroom. The sunroom has a pocket-door, if privacy is needed.

The walkout lower level includes another large family room with "fake" Franklin Stove fireplace and flat screen TV, desk area, two more bedrooms (with queen and full beds), and full bath (with stand-up shower). Likewise, the lower walk-out has a sheltered patio and gas grill. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the lower family room.

The long 350ft driveway is paved near the house with plenty of room for parking, and there are several options for off-street trailer parking on the property. There is also a basketball hoop in the driveway. Guests will not have access to the garage and mud/storage room.

There are many amenities, including DirecTV, DVD players, Wireless Internet/WiFi, washer and dryer, dual zone central heat/air conditioning, microwave, dishwasher, ice cube maker in the fridge, lakeside campfire pit, picnic table, gas grill, canoe, and large private dock. There are also additional games for the kids, such as Legos, Lincoln Logs, play tunnels and tents, and a GameCube. Bring your own boat or water toys, or rent from the local marinas and businesses.

The Sugar Camp Chain of Lakes offers a very private, scenic setting surrounded by the American Legion State Forest with minimal shoreline development. Most of the chain's shoreline is either privately owned or under the control of the Wisconsin DNR. The water level is controlled by a dam, so channels are typically accessible to travel between the lakes. Our lake, Echo Lake (at 93 acres; depth 18 ft.), is the smallest lake -- but also the calmest and quietest. There is plenty of room and depth for water sports (such as skiing, tubing, jet skiing, etc.), particularly as the deepest side of the lake is near our property. Likewise activities can expand to the other lakes, which include Chain Lake (201 acres; 19 ft.), Stone Lake (178 acres; 16 ft.), Sand Lake (547 acres; 25 ft.) and Dam Lake (732 acres; 32 ft.). There are three boat ramps between the five lakes – on Chain (preferred), Sand, and Stone Lakes.

Enjoy the secluded and scenic splendors the Northwoods has to offer – while being just minutes from great dining, go-carting, horseback riding, shopping, golfing, bike trails, snowmobile trails, and much more. This is the only rental property on Echo Lake, so make your reservation today as our calendar tends to fill up very quickly!

Sorry, no pets & no indoor smoking. For insurance and property protection, there are outside-only security cameras on the premises.

About The Quicks

We've been coming to the Northwoods for over 45 years, with my parents and siblings. And now we have passed along that tradition to our children - who refer to our Wisconsin trips as their most favorite vacations. In 2012, we purchased this cabin/lake house in our most favorite Northwood's location. But between our jobs and the kid's school and activities, we can't make it Up North as often as we would like -- so it just makes sense to occasionally rent the place when we can't be there. Please enjoy our home, as much as we do, and create some family memories of your own in the Northwoods! In the words of our children --


The Quicks purchased this cabin in 2012

Why The Quicks chose Eagle River

Our home and it's location on the Sugar Camp Chain of Lakes is a perfect setup. It's great to be on a smaller lake where it is very calm, quiet, and secluded -- but you can still take advantage of the larger lakes. You can sit on the deck or pier and listen to the Loons, watch the bald eagles, or feed the deer -- or ski on a calm mirror of water -- or take a walk or bike ride down the enormously tall tree-lined private streets that are tucked away from all the traffic. We like water sports, and there is plenty of room on Echo Lake for skiing, tubing, jet skiing, wake boarding, knee boarding, etc. Likewise, the lakes offer some of the best fishing around, to catch that ultimate Musky. If you want to take a cruise on the lake - you have 5 lakes to choose from -- make it an all day adventure or a short trip to Sand Lake/Pitlik's for their excellent Bloody Mary and fantastic menu.

Since we are perfectly situated between St. Germain and Eagle River, groceries, souvenir shopping, restaurants, bars, go-carts, bike trails, etc. are all a short drive away. And don't forget about all the various year-round activities and events, such as:

* The St. Germain Flea Market (Mondays, Memorial Day thru Labor Day),

* Pig in the Pines (August)

* Cranberry Fest & Fall Colors (October),

* World Championship Snowmobile Derby (January)

* Adult Pond Hockey Championships (February),

* Fishing tournaments (year-round)

We love our home in the Northwoods - it's location and all the amenities -- you will love it too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I spent much of my time working on a writing project. I also had the chance to get out for a pleasant run on the road and take the canoe out. I saw a couple of loons while canoeing. My time on the lake visiting the wildlife was a wonderful change of pace - and my writing project went well, so it didn't seem like a chore!. I wanted to thank you for having this wonderful home available for rent! I've been to a few of these rental homes in the Northwoods, and this has been one of my favorites! Thanks again!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed the week I stayed at the Quick Escape cabin! Had all the accommodations needed to cook delicious meals and plenty of room for me to spread out and enjoy the woods. The location was perfect, in between Eagle River & Rhinelander (12 miles away each way) so I could enjoy both towns quickly. Being on Echo lake / Chain of lakes made it that much better of a view!

Quick Escape

  • 5 of 5

We were in Eagle River for Derby Races. Home is convenient to all the local cities. Everything was just as described and very comfortable. Just wish we had more time to enjoy the home as we were gone most of the time for the races.

Served our needs perfectly.!

The Quick’s are excellent to work with and very accommodating. Thanks Liz!

Quiet and Relaxing Accommodations and Excellent Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodations. Great views of the lake from the spacious living room on second floor. Many of our needs were met by what was provided by the owners. Quiet and Peaceful area. House is centrally located to several towns. Liz and Terry are Great Hosts. They suggested several activities, restaurants and bars that were spot on. Look forward to making the Quick Escape a recurring destination.
