This is a story about a little lake called Heiress. Perched at the furthest end of East Heiress was an empty multi-acre lot save for an old Hunter's shack. We replaced the shack with this log beauty and look forward to many years of memories.
For 11 years, my wife and I have coached the women's college tennis team at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. This job is AWESOME! But it takes away from Spring and Fall weekends at the cottage because that's when our competitions happen.
So, instead of having the cottage sit idle from March 1 to May 1st and from Sept. 1 until Oct. 20, we are looking to share it.
This house will make you feel relaxed the moment you walk in. The extremely private setting puts you in the Northwoods mood right away. The lake - a mere 30 acres - runs 52 feet deep and is spring fed.
We have canoes, paddleboats, kayaks, and a great dock for swimming. 50 feet out from our shoreline the depth drops to 20 feet so the swimming is superb. Without a public boat landing, the fish don't know predators so they come right up to you while you're in the water.
As for the cabin itself, we took great pride in building a new home that maintained unique character elements. The beams that hang across the great room are from an old 1850's Iowa barn and the five different species of reclaimed wood under your feet all maintain their own stories.
The first floor master bedroom and bathroom is cozy with a walk out hot tub deck that overlooks what will someday be the tennis court.
Groups will gather in the kitchen, dining and great room on the main floor with it's open concept and warm tones from the various woods used in construction.
A second bedroom with a full bath is tucked behind the dining room.
Upstairs in the loft, two separate rooms are where the kiddos go, one with a twin/full bunk and the other with a single queen. If we keep popping them out, we may need to shift the beds but for now, we're happy. Between the bedrooms is a common area for movie watching and game playing and a full bathroom.
Guest may use anything of ours while staying there - be our guest!
