Unique Features

Artist’s Cove has a wonderful custom-built lakeside deck, where mature trees have been incorporated into the open-air design. We provide deck chairs, an outdoor dining table, and a grill, as well as lawn chairs and a fire pit set in the yard closer to the water. Feel free to use the onsite rowboat and kayaks, or bring your own watercraft to launch from our private dock. We recommend having your morning coffee at the small bench at the end of the dock!

Things To Do

Artist’s Cove is ideally located just a few minutes from northern Wisconsin’s Ottawa National Forest and the Chequamegon-Nicolet national Forest. It’s also surrounded by the stunning natural greenery of the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest.

These wooded vistas supply the perfect playground for nature lovers to get out and explore in the pristine, wild landscape and the clean air. Northern Wisconsin is traversed by an extensive nature trail system, perfect for snowshoeing, fat-tire biking, hiking and even snowmobiling.

We are close to options for downhill skiing in the winter time, as well as dozens of other exciting year-round adventure activities. Paddle the many local lakes and rivers, and plan to spend a sunny afternoon fishing! Wild Rice Lake is home to musky, panfish, bass, pike, and walleye.

Very nice shack on a small lake. Not much for people around so it was nice and quiet. Local bait shop three miles away and a grocery store; don’t have to venture very far if you need something. I’ll be back here for sure. — Matt, Jan. 2020
We stayed here four days in late October. This proved to be a great location for our running and hiking activities. We also learned a great deal about cranberries from the local gift store. — Stephen, Oct. 2019
This place had everything we needed. We needed a break from work so we drank our coffees by the fire and stared at the lake for hours and then watched netflix using the smart tv's. It was so stellar. Clean, easy to understand, and so dang comfortable. We couldn't stop expressing how cozy it was. Will for sure be coming back! — Sydney, Oct. 2019
We loved staying at this cozy cottage right on the lake. Waking up to lake views and spending time at night on the heated porch with a fire in the fireplace was exactly how we wanted to unwind. We would absolutely stay here again and hope we get another reason to come back! — Hallye, Oct. 2019
Loved how warm and welcoming this place felt. My 92-year-old mother was so excited and happy to spend a couple of days back in the north woods and this house worked so well. The fireplace was great due to the very windy and cool weather we had. We had everything we needed to feel comfortable and the view over the water was great. — Cynthia, Oct. 2019
Had a wonderful time staying in the Artists Cove. Clean, spacious, and fully equipped. And the lake views were priceless. — Greg, Sept. 2019
