We have an OldTown sit-in kayak with PFDs and everything you need, that you can use to explore the gorgeous Flambeau river. We have 3 adult size bikes you can borrow to take a little trek to enjoy our northwoods beauty.

Jennifer is a great host! She had several places we could park and it was level and very peaceful. She even has a firepit that is available and well done around a small pond. Just a lovely stay. Thank you

For an overnight stay on a long road trip, this spot is... well, it's just bliss. We used the 15-amp electrical hook-up, which suited us just fine. Quiet and lovely!

We stayed for 5 days and it was wonderful. Very peaceful area, but close enough to amenities when needed. Our hostess was super nice. The parking area next to the garage was flat and we were able to fit our 45'er with no problem.

Host had great communication. Spot is level. Large, quiet and peaceful property where my dogs thoroughly enjoyed exploring and swimming in the pond. I helped the host out by mowing her grass which is something I’ve come to miss while living on the road. We had a fire one evening and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for s’mores. Great communication and a wonderful, welcoming host. Be sure to check out Heart of the North greenhouse/brewery in the nearby town of Ladysmith.
