Owl Lake, Wisconsin 54547– MLS#160680

For most people, the chance to own a piece of natural wonder is too far out of reach. For most people, the tranquility and restorative powers of real nature are a wistful dream – only briefly realized on weekend excursions. But, and this is truly for only a handful of people worldwide, there does exist a place – replete with all you could ever want – if only you have the ability to grasp it. That ability rests firmly in your past history of success. Have you conquered the world of finance? Do you have more than you ever thought possible? Well, there’s a piece of heaven located right in Wisconsin’s Northwoods that was meant for you.

Being the next in line for such a historic property is one thing, but having access to the natural beauty the property offers is something else – something out of this world. John Burroughs once said, “I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more.” He understood a great truth of our industrialized world, that the human spirit needs nature to replenish itself. Thoreau agreed with him when he said, “I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.” They both saw the value in wild places, in untouched natural beauty, so they made it a part of their journey through life and their wisdom, as well as their fame, has lasted through time.

You’ve made a place in the world most envy. Yet, they have no idea what it has taken to get there, or what it requires to stay in the place you’ve made professionally. The stresses and strain can become unbearable for some – but, not for you. No, nothing can keep you from the success you’ve always had and you’ll keep pushing because that’s what you do. It’s worked for you, so why change? As Shikoba said, “The antidote to exhaustion isn’t rest. It’s nature.” So, prolong your time at the top by freeing yourself from stress through pilgrimages to your own private Walden Pond. Take a walk among the hardwoods, drop a lure into the clear water, or attune yourself to the wilderness and land a white-tail trophy buck. It’s all here and it’s all yours. All you have to do is want it badly enough to make it happen. The price is right and the place, well, the place is everything Mr. Thoreau ever dreamed of and more. See, Mr. Burroughs and Mr. Thoreau didn’t know about the internet. Owl Lake Estate has it, too.

Property Information $985,000

More an extension of the Northwoods than a structure, or at least that’s the feeling one gets when viewing Owl Lake Estate for the first time, this historic wilderness lodge is nestled on a beautiful, large private bay. Originally constructed in the 30’s by Robert Eitel, one of the Chicago Eitel’s of Bismarck Hotel fame, this 52-acre property boasts over 3,000’ of water frontage on beautiful, and virtually private, Owl Lake. This piece of natural splendor is for those who need peace and quiet to replenish and offers breathtaking views and experiences around every evergreen bough and promontory. The Lodge’s Great Room has 20’ ceilings laced with timber crossbeams, a wood burning fireplace, and views of the surrounding waters that will take your breath away. See yourself waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the water, cooking you and your loved ones a wonderful breakfast on the large commercial stove, and enjoying lively, joyful conversation as you break your fast using Bismarck Hotel china and stemware. Mimosas, anyone? The home includes 5 bedrooms, each with patio or deck, and 3.5 baths with a second-story office space and library. The property has six separate outbuildings which include a 2-bedroom guest cottage, a tackle house, firewood storage building, 3 garages, and a spacious tool shed. There is also an adjoining 245 acre parcel of land available with 12,000’ of additional water frontage (MLS#146940).
