3-bedroom 2.5 bath sleeps eight, on Wisconsin's cleanest, most beautiful lake. 2-night minimum stay. Condo includes wood fireplace, flat-screen TV, Blu-Ray/DVD, A/C, small sauna, wraparound deck, private dock, propane grill. Complex has boat landing, tennis courts.
The condo is a comfortable, well-appointed space, and Lake Owen is outstanding among the many beautiful lakes in Wisconsin for the clarity of its water and its depth. Large portions of its shoreline remain undeveloped and wild. Loon calls fill the air and eagles soar overhead.
Layout: main level has 1/2 bathroom; upper level has lofted master bedroom (queen bed) and full bathroom (shower); lower level has 2 bedrooms, one w/ queen bed, other w/ queen bed + 'day bed' that converts into a king. Shared full bath (tub+shower) on lower level.
There is one place to eat bar food and get drinks on Lake Owen-- Otter Bay Resort. The Otter Burger is really good and you can eat outside on the deck overlooking the lake (be sure to put on bug spray). To get there by boat, go around the second big peninsula on the right side of the lake (driving north from the condos), go (very slowly) through the little narrows, and then all the way to the end of the bay (called Otter Bay). To get there by car, turn left out of the driveway, go straight through the stop sign where Resort Road becomes McAully Road, take a left at the dead end onto Lake Owen Drive, turn left at the corner where you'll see a sign for Otter Bay Resort, and then left again into the Otter Bay Resort driveway (marked by a Hamm's sign with the resort name), past the motel units to the right and on around to the bar. You can get gas for boats at Otter Bay, too, but it's much cheaper to fill your tanks in town.
Nearby American Legion does a nice Friday fish fry.
The nearest town to the condo is Cable, 4 miles south, where you can get groceries at Rondeau's, great pizza at the River's Eatery, which shares a storefront with Redbery Books, good sandwiches at the Brick House (they also cater meals), visit the excellent Natural History Museum and the Cable Historical Museum, and find gifts and souvenirs. Rocky's Service Center has a surprisingly good wine selection! The Triple G Service Center has a Subway inside. Fine Dining is available down County M a few miles at the Rookery. Further down, Garmisch is worth a visit as well, with its quirky style and beautiful views of Lake Namekagon. You can play golf at Telemark Resort off of County M or a little further down at Lakewoods. There are various gift and antique stores in town in Cable and also a little south of it down Highway 63. 20 miles south of Cable is Hayward, a bigger town with a Wal-Mart, a movie theater, and more restaurant and bar options (and a giant muskie). You can bowl (at Angler's Bar), drive go-carts, and putt-putt. Big Fish is a very good golf course in Hayward. The Angry Minnow brews its own beer (the Scotch Ale is a favorite) and has the best food in Hayward.
Rent bikes or cross-county skis from New Moon or Riverbrook - New Moon has snowshoe rentals as well. There are exceptional, well-groomed trails throughout the area for ski, snowmobile, snowshoe and biking.
