Cabin for Sale

Angler's Cozy Cottage is a 2-bedroom housekeeping rental cabin CENTRALLY LOCATED on the very desirable and legendary Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes. Legendary because all 10 lakes are brimming with a variety of fish bragged about in not-so-tall fishing stories throughout the years and great catches still being reported today. Each of the 10 lakes are completely accessible to you from your private dock. Angler's Cozy Cottage is for sale by owner. Since this cabin is not listed at a Real Estate Agency yet, there is more wiggle room on the final price of the cabin.

20 miles north of Minocqua in the town of Manitowish Waters, WI, this cabin stands on the peaceful Manitowish River between Rest Lake and Stone Lake which is a mandated NO-WAKE zone, assuring quality fishing off the pier and friendly waving at the slow-moving boats as they pass by quietly at the posted speed limit that protects the shorelines and allows you to continue fishing or swimming or relaxing!

Angler's Cozy Cottage is being offered For Sale By the Owner and is now available for purchase.  All 2019 rentals will be written into any sales contract.  We would like to offer the cabin's unique coziness to the guests who have personally enjoyed its natural scenic views and plentiful amenities provided by Angler's Cozy Cottage and Hillcrest Resort, with hope that it will continue to be one of Wisconsin's finest rental cabins and to anyone who would like to continue providing the best rental cabin in these parts. Of course, you have the option to take the cabin off the rental program and use it for yourself as well as most any purpose including living in the cabin year round once the currently reserved weeks have passed.

If you rent out the cabin, you will appreciate the 8 x 10 storage building that will hold your personal effects until you can get back for more fun in your Upnorth Wisconsin cabin.

Call Carol Today

Call Carol to set up an appointment for an upcoming Saturday (when the cleaning takes place between rentals - between 10 am - 2 pm) to take a closer look at the cabin or before or after the season begins. We would love to see one of our renters buy the cabin so the love and care will continue and, hopefully, the rental plan, as this is a very LOVED cabin by all who have stayed here. Prior to owning the cabin, we ourselves were renters for three consecutive years in this very same resort. The previous owners made a similar offer to their renters and we jumped on the opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience and nothing would make us happier than to uphold tradition and provide a fellow renter the same incredible opportunity.

PRICE: ($229,900). All reasonable offers will be considered. The most recent appraisal available (appraised at $234,900). There is very little for sale on this Chain because it is a very desirable waterway and very few properties are zoned to rent out. There is nothing for sale in this price range around the Chain at this time.  I challenge you to find a better value or a better cabin for the money on our beloved and legendary Chain of 10 Lakes. Now is the time to BUY as the interest rates will most likely soon be on the rise.

Our Rental Resort

Only GRANDFATHERED RENTAL RESORTS will be allowed to rent out any cabins legally all around the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes. Therefore, as many of these grandfathered resorts are passed down to family and converted to year-round homes and when these new rules are more strictly enforced, the remaining rental units will become more valuable. All of Vilas County have rules about renting out cabins and homes. Most cabins are R1 Residential. This grandfathered rental resort is zoned R2 MultiFamily. All new construction and all cabins presently not zoned for rental will NEVER be able to rent on the entire Manitowish Chain as long as the 2007 zoning board rule is in effect. ANGLER'S COZY COTTAGE is in a grandfathered rental resort AND this ruling can be verified by the Zoning Dept. and by looking at the zoning map for the area.

From the opening day of rental in May, this cabin was fully rented through October for many recent fishing seasons. The 2019 rental season has very few remaining rental weeks left. Rentals from Memorial Day through Labor Day are weekly rentals from Saturday to the following Saturday at $900/week plus tax. Spring rates are discounted to $850. Weekend and nightly rentals are available in both spring and fall.

ALL 2019 RENTAL RESERVATIONS will be written into the sales contract guaranteeing that ALL RENTAL RESERVATIONS FOR 2019 WILL BE HONORED and any future confirmed rental reservations at point of sale will also be honored.

Angler's Cozy Cottage is located at the southern end of seven cabins, offering great privacy leaving the other cabin guests with no reason to ever be in your space. There is a large yard on the private property side of the cabin, enough to park multiple boat trailers. Even if anyone should ever want or was allowed to build on the empty space between our cabin and the private property cabin far down, the required setback for new structures is 75' from the water's edge, protecting your view from Angler's Cozy Cottage forever, and our 25' setback is grandfathered and legal.  If you want to own a cabin close to the water you will have to purchase a cabin that is already close to the water because you are not allowed to build close to the water.

End Cabin

From the water, Angler's Cozy Cottage looks like a private stand alone cabin due to the expansive distance between the resort cabins on one side and the far private cabin on the other.

The panoramic view out the oversized picture window is truly postcard beautiful and displays the Manitowish River broadening into Stone Lake. The full rear of this cabin is filled with trees and is then bordered by state-managed woods, and we have a small forest on the far side of the resort ensuring that the beautiful wooded view on all sides will stay fresh and full of nature. This wonderfully unique cabin rents itself very well because of its breathtaking view, and it provides an awe-inspiring "Up North" vacation abundant in fishing, boating, and RELAXING!
