Nice, quiet, peaceful, and serene, Wheeler Lake House is great for those who want to unwind. Only 8 homes rest on this private lake so guests are able to take in the woodlands, resident swans and loons, and stillness of the lake. Jump in one of the two row-boats and enjoy fishing on this all sports lake. Love the winter? Enjoy hoping on the maintained country road and vroom on over to a local snowmobile trail!
Wheeler Lake House consists of 2 buildings: the main house and a bunk house. The main house hosts 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom and deck. Of course, the fully-equipped kitchen is perfect for whipping up a meal or if you prefer, take the food outside and relax while grilling on a propane grill. At night, enjoy looking at the stars while you sit around the campfire.
The detached bunk house is equipped with a 40” flat screen Smart TV, couch, and Double-Twin bunk bed (sleeps 3). This space is great for kids or teens. There is not a bathroom in the bunk house.
