House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-12)
Holcombe, Northwest, Wisconsin, USA
This luxurious 5000+ square foot river-front southern-style home sits on two acres of beautiful wooded land. We’re situated in the very quiet part of the Flambeau River where the river is shallow and the flow is gentle, making it perfect for canoeing, tubing, and kayaking. It’s secluded and private, and there are 1000 undeveloped acres across the road.
This home provides easy access to over 2000 acres of ATV and snowmobile trails and is four short miles away from the Chippewa River and Lake Holcombe landing.
We have 235 feet of river frontage, and from the wrap-around balcony that offers a sweeping view of the river, you can watch bald eagles soar and dive for fish as you sip your morning coffee.
Dangle your feet off the new dock and fish for muskie, sturgeon, bass, northern pike, catfish, and yes, the occasional annoying sucker fish, or take the flat-bottomed fishing boat out to explore fishing opportunities further out.
Alternatively, you can take the canoe and imagine what it was like to be a Native American canoeing this same river a couple hundred years ago.
In the evening, enjoy a mixed drink made at the festive outdoor tiki bar and watch the beautiful sunsets over the river. Fire up the gas grill and prepare your catch of the day, and after dark, gather around the fire pit on the natural log seating and roast marshmallows around the fire.
Tearing yourself away from the outdoors will be difficult, but when you do, you’ll be greeted by a warm, cheerful home and a 3-foot porcelain pig offering apples on a platter.
You’ll find whimsical things like this throughout the home as this is a haven for fun and relaxation. You’ll want for nothing as far as kitchen appliances are concerned. Make use of a coffee pot, microwave, crock pot, 3-pot crock pot buffet server, griddle, waffle iron, pizza oven, deep fryer, blender, mixer, toaster, several sets of dishes, margarita set, bake ware, cookware, wine glasses, and drink glasses.
The large pantry has all the basics – sugar, flour, spices, etc. Just make sure to replace the stuff you finish so that the next person can enjoy the conveniences of home, too!
There is a large master bedroom with a luxurious queen bed and attached master bath (with hot tub!) on the main floor, two comfortable bedrooms (one with a full bed and the other with two twin beds) and a full bath on the lower level.
Also on the lower level is an office/bedroom and a large laundry room for all of your laundry needs. The 400 square foot loft up above the main floor can accommodate several queen air beds (there are three for your use).
My grandchildren love to have slumber parties in the loft, and all ten of them can easily fit with room to spare!
The home has beautiful hand-stained cherry wood cathedral ceilings, a cozy gas fireplace, central air, geothermal heating, Wi-Fi, and DirectTV for your convenience. Bed linens and towels are provided, and there are a few beach towels, too.
And last, but certainly not least, there’s a HUGE 3+ car finished, heated garage with a marble-topped wine bar. We often use this garage as a gathering place for our extended family on holidays.
Complete with a fun palm tree adorned with lights, we love to have holiday meals in there and can easily fit a dozen people. There are also two long cafeteria-style tables that you can set up for scrapbooking, quilting, jewelry-making, and other crafting get-togethers.
If you feel the need to leave this amazing property, there are two golf courses nearby, or you can drive to the nearby town of Ladysmith for all of your shopping and antiquing desires.
Ski slopes are about an hour away, and so is my mother if you’d like to stop in and say hello (just kidding, although she would likely dish you up a nice warm bowl of homemade soup!)
Seriously, though, I love this property, and I’m sure you will, too. I’m excited to share it with you!
