We are located on Deer Lake, Lincoln County (4 miles N of Tomahawk). Deer Lake is a beautiful, clear, spring fed, deep lake with a shallow level sandy shoreline. Great for fishing, swimming and boating. A very lovely lake.
Lake Size: 156 Acres. Maximum Depth 62 feet. 3 miles of shoreline.
Lake Notes: Specializing in Northern Pike, Muskie and Bluegill. Walleye, Large & Smallmouth Bass and panfish are also numerous. Deer connects to Bridge Lake & Lake Nokomis (The Rice Reservoir) via a man-made channel which is usually only navigable through early-mid July. After that, the water level in the channel is usually too low to get through with a motor. Usually, we can still kayak through.
We have 3, 1-person kayaks and a Grumman 2 person Canoe available for your free use. Fishing boat, Pontoon Boat and Personal Watercraft rentals are available at Tomahawk Sports Center in Tomahawk - 4 miles away.
Changing Gears Pedal & Paddle is 2 miles away and has bicycles, kayaks and paddle boards available for rent and delivery.
Usually, we have plenty of room available on the beach or dockside for a boat. There is a nearby boat ramp on the lake and a couple on Lake Nokomis.
The owners live in the main house year round.

Airbnb does NOT collect county and state sales taxes with your prepaid reservation. Therefore, our listed prices and the cleaning fee on Airbnb reflect the added 5.0% Wisconsin & 0.50% Lincoln county sales taxes. Airbnb does not provide a line item for hosts to collect nor for showing the amounts to the guests. A major flaw, in our opinion. We submit all required taxes on our rental income according to current state and county laws.
Our rates with the taxes built in, are:
Standard nightly rate $125/night.
Holiday weekends $125-$135/night.
Harley Fall Ride nights in September, $145/night.
