Put your feet up in an adjustable bed & doze off, dream of more trails & lakes to explore! Scroll down to "Show Other Reviews"

El espacio
A loft studio in Wisconsin's Northwoods 8 miles from Boulder Junction, WI. Nope, NOT ON A LAKE, but you can get to several LAKES & TRAILS in just minutes down Rustic Rd 60. Vintage "refurbishedness," a convenient kitchenette, and privacy make the Loft a cozy, tranquil retreat away from the world.

Suitable for 2-3 people (no bdrm)

BALCONY:
Spacious, private, covered 24ftx8ft with double swing, 2 swivel wrought iron chairs, table/gas flame fire pit- you can BBQ in almost any weather. GAS GRILL as pictured. We supply a 20# tank; can be refilled in Boulder Junction as needed. Viewing from the balcony doesn't stop after dark; turn on a floodlight that shines 50 ft out into the woods. Maybe you'll be so fortunate as to be here on a clear night with a full moon and see the forest awash in moonlight. Magical.

BEDS:
1 adjustable Memory Foam Queen bed – with remote, can elevate foot, head, or both
1 futon sleeper chair/fold out foam bed 6" thick, 36" wide, 70" long (twin size). If you'd like it made up for sleeping/bed, please notify upon booking, so that it is made up for when you arrive.

WIFI: It’s pretty good for being out here in the woods, just some buffering delays
KAYAKS: 4 – see details below
TV: 40in (just the basic channels)
HEAT: Electric radiant. Also infrared fireplace

WILDLIFE:
If you're quiet, you might hear the wolves howl or an owl hoot overhead. In late Apr/early May you’ll hear a chorus of frogs chirping. It's very likely you will see an eagle soar above. One winter, just 10 ft from the balcony, we saw a fox trot by carrying a snowshoe hare. Mouth full, he stopped to gaze directly at us. (So consider keeping your phone/camera nearby.)

PET-FRIENDLY:
Limit 2
Built-in kennel space for your pooch; you don’t need to bring a kennel.
Please inform us of the pet pals you are bringing, so that we can situate things for them.
Keep them on leash. If you leave them at unit, please keep them in the kennel area designed for them. DO NOT leave them on the balcony. If you need to take the pup out at night, there are overhead lamps that light the area safely.

BATHROOM:

MORE USEFUL SPECIFICS:

2 minimally used adult 10ft Pelican sit-ON kayaks that also function as stand up paddleboards (we have only ONE SUP Paddle)
1 Older 9ft sitIN Townline Otter (therefore heavier)
1 older 10ft sitIN Townline Vapor kayak

Pelicans are stackable, so they fit in a compact SUV, such as a CR-V (bring bungee cords), and bungee the back.
If you haven’t transported kayaks before, we’ll help situate you. Seriously, it's only minutes to lakes right down Cty Rd K (rustic rd 60). Less than 5min to Lost Canoe, White Sand Lakes. 10min to Ballard, Star, North & South Trout, Allequash Lakes.

PHONE SERVICE:
It can be spotty depending upon your service; check with your provider before coming.

IMPORTANT: Lands End at the Edge Loft is intended for those seeking tranquility. While it's all wilderness for miles in back, there are 3 other summer cottages down the road in front, approximately 1000 ft away. We wish for you to experience tranquility, and also for our guests to respect others' wish for it also.

If you're looking to play loud music and party into the night, don't book with us. There are other places better suited for that. Of course, we want you to have a beer and a lotta good laughs as you BBQ, we just ask that you keep loud noise to a minimum, especially after 9p.

Ubicación

Sayner, Wisconsin, Estados Unidos

We are located in the center of Vilas County, just off scenic Rustic Rd County K--the Plum Lake/Sayner/Star Lake area, all within the 236,000 acre Northern Highland American Legion (NHAL) state forest. Vilas County contains the highest concentration of lakes in Wisconsin, with 563 named lakes and 755 unnamed. Although you'll be staying in a semi-secluded area, you'll still find a good cup of coffee, breakfast, select groceries, a bike rental, and the 40+mile Heart of Vilas paved bike trail in nearby Boulder Junction, just 8miles west.

Property is in a quiet rustic cul de sac with 3 other summer homes, the nearest 1000ft away. The deck /balcony is very private and faces the wilderness area. We live 175ft away and share the first part of the driveway with guests.

This area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts... Here is just a sampling of what you will find in a very short distance from here:

Access to Star Lake Nature trail. Boat launches to Star lake. Free public panfishing from the pier in Centennial Park.
Visit the Fredericksons' Minnow Stand(ask about it at the store)
Bike County Rd N, another rollercoaster paved ride:)

Hey! Vicki, Randy, and Captain here! We are outdoor enthusiasts who love to bike and kayak in the great up north, looking to share our new corner of the world with other outdoor enthusiasts. We began hosting in DePere, Wisconsin, south of GreenBay fall of 2015. We so enjoyed hosting guests from all over the world, loved our little country corner lot, the excitement of having Lambeau nearby, and welcoming returning Packer fan guests year after year.., but we heard the Wisconsin Northwoods calling.... And so here we are now living in Star Lake/Plum Lake/Sayner area 8 mi out of Boulder Junction WI by the Northern Highland American Legion state forest. It's a mecca for outdoor sports here, and we're thrilled to have it all right outside our door. We've been working on putting this joint together for several years...pouring cement, blowing in insulation, hanging steel, digging in the mud, and all sorts of things we thought we'd never do... It's been a great Pandemic project certainly. And now we're opening it up to guests who wish to experience the Northwoods! Now, if you're reading this as one of our former guests, know that we'd so love to host you again--and share this grandeur! Albeit, do realize the "vibe" here will be a bit different, maybe not so much cavorting with fellow Packer fans (we're so going to miss that great camaraderie), but rather more of a cavorting with the great outdoors and all it has to offer! Note: More dates on the calendar to open some time in June, so check back later.... Hope to see ya soon in the Northwoods!
