    We had a lovely stay at Whitetail Waters! It was just as advertised, clean and with little things like paper towels, dish soap, hand soap etc included. The best part ended up being the so-so cell service (we didn't buy the wifi), it made our teens get off their phones and spend more time with us! :) Anybody with teens these days knows what a blessing that is. Truly had a wonderful time. Everything was very clean and we appreciated the attached garage to store our skis/poles/boots (we cross country skiied and downhill skied in the area). Also loved bringing our dog, she loved running around outside. Great communication with the property manager, no complaints at all. Thanks for a lovely stay!

    This property is located in a great location if you are looking to get away from it all. The property has a network of hiking trails for taking a stroll. Plenty of wild life around. The deck is comfortable and has a great view out over ponds and grasses and woods. The house is comfortable and well equipped. We think it would be ok for 6 people (we were just 4 on this trip) but might be a bit crowded for 8. We will book this place again for next year.

    We particularly enjoyed the space on the upper level. We had our 17 month old grandson with us on this trip. When not in the yard, he loved roaming around island. The kitchen was well equipped, I appreciated the Keurig ! The location also allowed my 17 year old granddaughter to practice drive, needs time behind the wheel. It was perfect for day trips in the area. Staying a week, it seemed to be slower around some areas midweek. Thanks again for welcoming us into your home. The Schreuders

    We very much enjoyed our trip up to the property in Ashland. The house is located on a great piece of land which was very quiet and allowed us to unplug and get away for a weekend. The house was very spacious and clean. The owners were very responsive to questions during the booking process and while we were there. I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet place with great atmosphere.

    Whitetail Waters is very comfortable and definitely for those who like nature. Very relaxing few days there. Saw several deer and an interesting, but not identified raptor (flight pattern was sort of like that of a kite, but don't know if they're in that area). Very relaxing; enjoyed all the recliners for reading.

    Very peaceful and quiet location in the country surrounded by wetlands and farmland. about a 15 minute drive to Ashland. The home is large and comfortable with a well appointed kitchen, nice deck with gas grill overlooking the wetlands, lots of space in the common areas such as dining and living rooms, 3 bedrooms each with a full or queen beds, and 2 bathrooms. Very clean with plenty of towels, bedding, etc. Washer and dryer. Kahron was very responsive and helpful. We had a very nice stay. Our stay was late June, 2019 and the countryside was lush and green. I would stay again. We only had a group of 3 people but the home can easily and comfortably accommodate a larger group. Internet service is an extra charge at $20 per GB and it worked without issue. There were televisions in the living room and bedrooms but we did not turn them on so have no knowledge of signal quality or content.

    If you are looking to fall off the grid to recharge, I highly recommend Whitetail Waters. Even though it is very peaceful, my cell phone did work very well. This place is located just off a major highway, yet far enough you couldn't hear a thing. It is also on a dead end road so traffic was non existence for the most part. I stayed for a full month and saw less than 5 vehicles drive past.

    Absolutely a great place to stay

    The home in the middle of a nature preserve was beautiful. However it was less than 10 minutes from Ashland and the Lake Superior waterfront. We had deer in the yard and am quite confident that we saw an eagle sitting on the same branch of the dead tree that is in the promotional photos. We had an enjoyable experience!

It would have gotten 5 stars except for the mile of gravel road, we were on motorcycles otherwise that would have been fine also. We wish WI FI would have been included in the price as other places we have stayed it was included in the price. A hot tub would be great also. We would recommend this property .

We found everything we needed for a lovely stay. The kitchen was spacious and well provisioned. The living-dining rooms were modern rustic with a wildlife decor as were the comfortable bedrooms. Outdoors a grill was provided on the large deck overlooking mowed walking trails around the wildlife ponds. We loved this place and found the owners to be very friendly, helpful and responsive!

    We stayed three nights at the end of December '17 and had a lovely experience there. The house was very comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. There are trails in the woods behind the house that were fun to snowshoe in and on two occasions we saw a bald eagle sitting on a tall stump in the field. We weren't prepared for how insanely cold it is up north at this time of year and that was a problem, but of course that was no reflection on Whitetail Waters which was warm and comfy. We would definitely return here if we come back to this area in the future.

    Kahron was a pleasure to deal with prior to arriving. She sent us several emails with suggestions for attractions in the area that we expressed an interest in. She also texted us a few hours prior to arrival to make sure everything was set for us in the house. Upon arrival there was small container of jam waiting as a welcome gift along with a note. The house is located on a beautiful parcel of land with plenty of trails to explore. We ventured out through the trails on multiple occasions to take in the beautiful and peaceful setting. The layout of the house worked perfectly for us with 3 bedrooms and a family room downstairs and an open layout upstairs with the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Everyone said they had the best night's sleep they had in a while with the comfortable beds and serenity of the setting. The location made easy access to Ashland for supplies and was centralized to explore Bayfield and the Apostle Islands while also visiting Copper Falls State Park. In addition to the popular tourist sites, we also visited Houghton Falls and Potato Falls. Just north of Bayfield are several Orchards and wineries with a variety of fruits and baked goods available. It was always a pleasure to return to the cabin at the end of the day, especially being able to stand out on the deck and watch the starts fill the night sky. It's a unique opportunity that a lot of people don;t get the chance to experience anymore. Thank you for sharing your home with us

    The house was very clean, warm in ambiance, and well equipped. We enjoyed walking the fields and seeing all the ducks and wildlife. This an excellent property to get away and get back with nature. Was surprised at how quiet it was at night and the view of stars off the large deck were phenomenal - we could even see the Milky Way. The best part of our stay was either sitting in the living areas or deck to view the wildlife. We even had a couple fawns in the yard in the early morning and evenings. I would definitely recommend staying here. Tom

    The home was extremely comfortable for our group of 3 couples. Everything was clean & well maintained. 3 good sized bedrooms with lots of hooks & hangars for convenient unpacking. The 2 bathrooms are large & have a generous supply of towels & bathroom needs. The open-concept kitchen/dining/living area is comfortable & uncrowded. A large dining table as well as a kitchen island with many stools for casual dining. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the tools needed to feed a big group. There's a beautiful deck where we enjoyed our morning coffee & watched the birds. There were lots of problems with the surrounding roads due to torrential rains the previous week. We found our way to Copper Falls State Park, where we hiked & spent the afternoon at the beach on Loon Lake. The drive was longer due to the flooded-out roads, but we got there in about an hour. We also went to a concert at the Big Top Chautauqua, which was just a 45 min. drive. We went to Bayfield & took the ferry to Madeline Island for sightseeing & lunch. Our trip was filled with fun days. The house was perfect for our needs & located in a perfect spot for getting around to the wonderful activities offered in the area. We will go back there again!

    All of us were very excited about staying at this property and were not disappointed. The view of the ponds was wonderful we even were able to see deer feeding by the ponds in the morning of our last day. There are mowed paths around the ponds for hiking, telescopes for bird watching and a beautiful deck to sit and watch the wildlife around us. The great room had large windows for viewing ponds and wildlife. The kitchen was fully equipped and we lacked for nothing. Kahron and Dave went out of their way to ensure that we were accommodated even when a terrible storm earlier in the week caused road closures in the area and threatened to keep us from coming up north for our weekend. We found many good restaurants and in area and we were only 30 minutes from Bayfield and the harbor. All of the roads are like brand new and the area is a great place for hiking and sightseeing. When I come up to the Apostle Islands again, I will definitely stay at this house again and would definitely recommend this house and our hosts to all my friends and family.

    My spouse and I spent a four day weekend at Whitetail Waters and plan to make this semi-annual trip; once in the winter and again in the summer. We live in the Twin Cities and needed a peaceful place to relax that was close to good restaurants and shopping (for me) and ice fishing and cross-country skiing for both of us. I travel extensively for my job and didn't want to stay in a hotel or have to board our dog. This is our first VRBO experience and it was amazing! Ashland is a quaint town that has a wonderful Chinese restaurant! The town is located on Chequamegon Bay which we followed in our car one day and ended up in Bayfield -gorgeous! From Bayfield you can take a ferry to Madeline Island which we plan to do this summer when we return. Bayfield is a shopper's paradise with so many unique shops and boutiques. We stopped by the Apostle Islands information center and learned about touring the islands. Another adventure awaits this summer as I have never kayaked but am convinced it is the best way to experience these beautiful islands. The owners refer to the lodging as a cabin -but it is truly a home with all of the modern amenities! A huge deck was the perfect spot to sip on wine and watch birds, deer and we even saw a fox! The fireplace kept us cozy at night and honestly we had a hard time leaving to return to the hustle and bustle at home. I hope my review is helpful for people wanting privacy, a glimpse at nature and so many options for day trips to Bayfield, the Apostle Islands and even Duluth which I learned is less than an 1-1/2 hours away.

    My spouse and I have stayed at Whitetail Waters several times of the year but last fall was the best. The cabin is at the end of a gravel road. Ron did not know that and kept asking if we had arrived yet. When I told him it was the house on the left - he said that is not a cabin! . It is a beautiful house with a well groomed yard; from the deck you can enjoy the ducks swimming on the pond. That pond is one of many as you will discover when you take the RV trails.There are apple trees in the back which the deer love to sample and the grouse and other game are not far from the house. The house has a well equipped open kitchen which flows into the dining area and the living room which makes for easy entertaining. The main level is up from ground level so your view of the country side is breathtaking. You can grill on the deck , have a drink and watch the sun set. It is gorgeous. The bedrooms are downstairs, which also has a full bath and a laundry area. Go four wheeling, get dirty, shower and wash your clothes for the next day. It has all the amenities plus a feeling of seclusion and relaxation. Very good for relaxing and renewal of spirit. Plus you are not far from Ashland and all the area has to offer.
