Overview

About the property

Year round fully furnished 1 bedroom cabin overlooking Little Spider Lake

This is truly a hidden gem located just off of Highway 51 on a private driveway - Enjoy a drink on your private deck (or from your bedroom) or on your private lakeside deck if you choose - on quiet Little Spider Lake. Often overlooked and under fished, you may encounter less than 10 boats a day during a typical stay. You can have quiet solitude or enjoy shopping within 10 minutes of the cabin. A fire pit is located within 50 feet of the cabin for an awesome view of the evening sky. You are just steps away from fishing for Musky, Large mouth bass, Northern Pike, Walleye, Perch, and Crappy as the native species to our lake. We have included life jackets- row boat- canoe- paddle boat- and the use of up to 4 kayaks. Located in the Northern Highland State Forest, you will find 70' White Pine trees in the yard upon your arrival to our 10 acre resort.

You have your own private dock along with being minutes away from golfing(5 minutes)- biking (10 minutes)- hiking - casino (15 minutes) or entertainment in the Wisconsin northwoods. We provide firewood for your evening fires- just steps from the cabin.

Linens-towels- and most toiletries are provided. We also provide coffee- dishes and a variety of spices for your cooking needs. Books are provided for those quiet times you want to sit back and read.

Enjoy the outdoors with the sights and the call of loons in the mornining- eagles-blue herons- fox- and deer are common visitors to your stay as well.

We have a large master bedroom with a King size bed, a sitting area, along with a french door with a spectacular view of the lake. A 2 person jacuzzi tub and shower are included in the bathroom. Two flat screen tv's with Directv are located in the living and bed rooms. The master bedroom includes an air conditioner (summer) or snuggle up to a Lopi gas stove fireplace for those cool eveningsin the living room.

We are confident you will enjoy this cabin as many of our returning renters have year after year. This cozy cabin is fully remodeled including flooring- carpet- and oak cabinetry- new queen futon (2017) and wifi

About Ken Korsch

Linda and Ken Korsch, proprietors- We are on site owners - We also enjoy all the things that make the northwoods enjoyable for the visitors.

The cleaning is meticulous! You can enjoy a morning of local golfing at Trout Lake and then an afternoon ride around the lake followed by an evening around the campfire- all stress free!

Ken Korsch purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Ken Korsch chose Arbor Vitae

The beauty and solitude of Little Spider Lake gave us the vision to create a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families to enjoy. We enjoy the quiet area- despite being minutes from downtown Minocqua Wisconsin. Some weekends we can enjoy the solitude of the resort without having to leave. Ken enjoys ice fishing in the bay (100 feet from the cabin) in winters without other fisherman around.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our properties include hiking trails, biking opportunities along with canoeing- kayaking - boating- and fishing. We have found this space to be a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its finest. We take a ride around the lake on our pontoon (about 45 minutes) while seeing many eagles in the nearby trees. We even have an eagles nest on the lake! Loons are common along with viewing an occasional fox or deer on the shoreline adds to the ride. Take a step back in time while enjoying the modern amenities of our favorite cabin.

The place to relax and have fum..

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay here and it was as great as the first stay. Brought our two Boston Terriers along and they loved exploring the property. Ken and Linda are great hosts/owners. Always available to answer any questions or assist with any additional requests. Outside is welcoming as well. Much to do as there are paddleboats horseshoe game area, sandbox for the kids and nature trails to explore.

Cabin was well stocked with everything we needed.

Woodruff/Minocqua area has plenty to offer for food and entertainment.

In other words, we are already looking forward to planning our trip back to Lake Rest Cabins for next year

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just right for us. The quiet, the privacy, the beautiful view of the lake, the fishing - everything was great! The cabin was very comfortable and clean, and we had everything we needed. Ken and Linda were helpful and friendly, and even the neighbors were very nice! We would definitely like to come again!

The property was well maintained and had all the comforts of home right there.

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the cabin in April. As soon as we walked in to the cabin everything felt warm and cozy. Beautiful view of the lake from the deck which is right off the bedroom. Our seven year old lab enjoyed his daily walks. Overall I would say that our anniversary getaway at the cabin was just perfect!

Beautiful slice of heaven in the Northwoods

  • 5 of 5

I was back home to scatter my dad's ashes in nearby locations and needed a centrally located, but beautiful, peaceful and soul-regenerating spot. This is perfect. Ken and Linda were kind, created me and then left my husband and I to our peace. Snug, cozy little lovely abode overlooking the lake. Gorgeous with five feet of snow. :)

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Baron's Bungalow. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Ken even got some sleds out of the garage so my girls could play in the snow. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The grounds and lake are beautiful. Can't wait to go back sometime when it's warmer and we can take advantage of the lake! Thanks Linda and Ken!
