Located on beautiful Bass Lake, you get the tranquility of a 278-acre lake with the convenience of being minutes from Eagle River and the 28 Chain of Lakes. This ranch-style, one level, lakefront home with level sandy swimming beach is perfect for family fun. This Northwoods charm getaway has a peaceful lake view from the deck which is just feet from shore. The expansive deck is accessed from both the great room and the kitchen.
This home is under new ownership since the Fall of 2019 and is now called Black Bear Den. Our family has been vacationing in Eagle River at Bass Lake since 2011 and in St. Germain prior to that. You will not see any reviews yet since our first rental season is beginning this May 2020. However, this Bass Lake home (previously known as Bear Den) has been available for rent by the previous owners through VRBO and other venues, and the renters have enjoyed this property. Here are just three of the many positive reviews that this lake home has received over the years.
â€œI love this place. Lots of fun with the kids and grandkids. This is our 5th year here.â€ (July 2019)
â€œThis is our second time staying at this property and we plan to be back again! Lovely, clean, and very spacious home with stunning views. We caught tons of panfish from the pier, and some nice bass out on the lake, too. Fireplace was perfect on the chilly nights. Overall just a great place for a couple or a family." (September 2018)
â€œThis was our 6th year staying in this lake house. We love it! The house is clean and comfortable. Itâ€™s well-stocked with linens and the kitchen has everything youâ€™ll need to cook and eat. The lake frontage is level and sandy. There are beach chairs and a fire pit near the shore. We enjoy kayaking, fishing, and biking in the area. The house is close to Eagle River shopping and dining. Nothing negative in our review." (June 2017)
The serene setting is relaxing with 100 feet of level sandy frontage with a gradual sloping sand bottom. The sandy bottom is great for swimming and shallow enough for wading in. There are two paddle boats and two kayaks to explore the lake. Catch a fish off your private pier or included 14' V-hull fishing boat with oars and anchor. You can bring you own outboard motor or rent a 15 horsepower or less motor from the nearest marina, Boat Sport in Eagle River. Lounge on or leap from the large swim raft. Maximum lake depth is 16' - plenty deep for water skiing and tubing. Bass Lake has no public boat launch. Big Bass Resort has a private boat launch, but they currently are NOT offering boat launching as a service as they have in the past.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, lounge in the Adirondack chairs on the spacious deck or enjoy patio chairs around the lakeside campfire area. When it is time to relax inside, you will love the homeâ€™s open floor plan and fully equipped kitchen. The dining and family room has a stone fireplace. In addition, there is a spacious great room, perfect for reading, game playing or assembly of puzzles. Relax and savor the magnificent view of the lake through the expansive windows or while enjoying a meal outside on the large lakeside deck. A picnic table, charcoal grill and fire pit are there for your pleasure.
This home is an excellent getaway for spring, summer and fall retreats. The colors in the fall are exquisite as the home and lake are surrounded by maple, birch and towering pine trees. Fish, visit the Cranberry Festival or hike the trails of the nearby Nicolet National Forest. Summer temperatures are generally very comfortable with the lake nearby. We also have a ceiling fan and portable fans.
June, July and August book for a weekly rate only. However, if the calendar still shows an opening within two weeks of your arrival, you can reserve a three night minimum stay. Adventure, peaceful relaxation and lifetime memories await you.
