About the property

2 bedroom - 1 bath with additional bunkhouse

The Cottage

The cottage has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, a living room, and a screen porch. One bedroom has a full bed, and the other bedroom has 3 beds (a queen and two twins). There are also two additional twin beds located in the old boat house which has been converted to a bunkhouse. There is a firepit onsite which firewood is provided, as well as a gas grill available for use.

Our cabin is only about 25 feet from the water, giving you a great view of the lake. The setting is very private, as you can not see the neighbors on either side of you due to forests. The water is swimmable with a nice sandy bottom.

A 20 Foot Pontoon Boat with 40HP 4-stroke motor docked at the cottage is INCLUDED in rental price. This is a fishing/cruise pontoon and will work well for either purpose.

Columbus Lake is a 600+ Acre lake located in Sugar Camp Wisconsin. The lake has no 'public' access, therefore it does not have heavy fishing pressure or boat traffic like most other lakes. The lake is abundant with walleyes, panfish, perch, northern pike, and muskie. The shoreline is a sandy bottom, with some reeds surrounding the dock located at the cottage. .

***Two Kayaks are now provided at no additional cost***

**There is no public boat landing on this lake. It is typically NOT possible to launch your own boat**

***Pets are considered with pre-approval - There is a $50 per pet fee (for your entire stay, not per night)***

What makes this cottage unique

No public access lake means it is quiet as well as better fishing. (however it does mean there is not a spot to launch your boat, which is why we provide one)

Peaceful and secluded cabin on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Loved the pontoon boat and kayaks. Caught fish right off the dock and enjoyed campfires at night. Wonderful restaurants close by and plenty of hiking, biking trails. Lots to do in the area. Able to bring our furry family members which was a big plus for us. We really enjoyed the screen porch too!

The property was very clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Are stay was for six days in June 2018 weather was very cooperative a little windy but made it work. Caught enough fish for two fish fries during are stay. Highly recommend Moon dance bar and restaurant down the road in sugar camp the food is very good. The golfing in Eagle River was a little tough with the wind but nice golf course. We will be coming back next year.

Quiet, beautiful UpNorth retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Very private quiet location, saw only 2 or 3 boats a day during a holiday weekend. Great sunrises, lots of wildlife, caught fish right off the dock a number of nights. Very close to a bait shop, ice and great food right down the road. Can't wait to do it again. Brett is a great host and always very responsive to any questions before and during your stay.

Very nice lake cottage.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here the last week in September. The cottage has many plusses and only a few minusses. On the plus side: total seclusion, total quiet, great pontoon boat, nice kayaks, good Crappie fishing, clean well-equipped cabin, close to everything, lots of deer, resident eagle and loons, nice screen porch. very helpful and responsive owner. On the minus side: very little space for hanging up clothes and outer-wear, only one dresser, small water heater-can’t do two showers in a row, small TV with very limited selection. ( we watched old Lucy Shows and Laugh-In) Then again, the TV is not why you come to this area and specifically this cabin. So, we’ll definately be coming back as the plusses far outweighed the minusses.
