Do you ever wonder what it would be like to escape to your own Island?

You're in luck my friend; it is now an offering in the majestic Northwoods of Wisconsin. 4 acres of serenity with over 2100 feet of frontage, majestic trees, long winding stone granite paths, one that leads to a private boat house. The incredible architecturally designed timber frame home with lake views from all sides is truly a well thought out use of the Island's beauty. Of course it has all the expected amenities a private hideout would incorporate. Superb floor plan includes beautiful well-appointed master bedroom suite with its own entrance to an inviting hot tub, gaze at the stars in every season while sitting in bubbly warmth.
