Delightful beach vacation home with a spa tub
Be one of the discerning to discover all that Cranberry Castle and northern Wisconsin have to offer. With 8,500 square feet under air this massive luxurious log and stone cabin is ready to make memories and has been featured on Travel Wisconsin, Discover Wisconsin and in the USA Today! Check out the video a past guest made of their vacation!

HOUSE FEATURES:
The “Castle” is truly high end with no expense spared. Some features include a whole home ipod ready stereo system, full British Columbian cedar (not pine) log interior and partial exterior with real Door County stone, hickory/oak/cherry hardwood floors, imported tile/travertive, Brazilian rosewood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The vaulted ceilings and towering lakeside windows provide beautiful views.

LOCATION:
Located on Cranberry Lake on the famous Eagle River Chain, the largest chain of interconnected lakes in the world. The clean and easily navigable lakes are perfect if you are looking to swim, ski, fish or just take the boat out for dinner. At just under 1,000 acres Cranberry is the second largest and last lake on the Eagle River chain. There are no restaurants on Cranberry Lake so boat traffic on the lake is minimal. Cranberry Castle sits on a level lot with pristine sand frontage on quiet “Musky Bay”. On top of this the house is on a dead end and a ten minute drive from the quaint shops of downtown.

KITCHEN FEATURES:
The main chef's kitchen is fully furnished should you choose not to take your boat out to dinner. It features a 48' Viking Professional natural gas stove complete with a grill and griddle, Wolf stainless steel double oven, Wolf warming tray, a large Sub-Zero side by side fridge/freezer, Wolf microwave and Kitchen Aid stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a guest kitchen upstairs complete with a stove/oven/microwave and full fridge/freezer should you need more space.

GREAT ROOM FEATURES:
Sitting at the pub table enjoying a glass of wine is a great place to take in the lake views. Other features include an open floor plan, carved pool table with ample seating, bumper pool table, Yamaha grand piano, Legacy shuffleboard table, beautiful stone fireplace and big screen HDTV.

MASTER BEDROOM & BATHROOM HIGHLIGHTS:
The master bedroom sits in the upper south tower with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous lake views. It features a rustic log bed, memory foam queen mattress with high thread count cotton sheets and a wall mounted 32” HDTV. There is a glass enclosed double shower and vanity along with an walk-in closet and jetted tub.

PATIO AND YARD HIGHLIGHTS:
The grand patio offers two full deep seating sets with seating for ten, a full stone outdoor fireplace, built in stainless steel natural gas grill, charcoal Weber and speakers running off the house stereo. Just off the patio on one side of the house sits an outdoor spa with seating for six including a recliner. On the other side sits an eight foot western red cedar barrel sauna with seating for six to warm up on a cool night. The large level yard has ample space to set up a volleyball net and throw the football around. The lakeside hammock warrants a competition for who can get there first. The children can build sandcastles on the beach, play in the water, go down the waterslide and swim out to the floating raft. There are also two kayaks provided which are not pictured. The large aluminum dock has a 200 square foot platform with seating for six, great for relaxing and taking in the tranquility of the Northwoods. There are also permanent bumpers on the dock for two boats but it can easily accommodate more watercraft. The lakeside fire pit seats 16 and is great for making s'mores and telling stories. There are six additional recliners provided that can be placed wherever you feel necessary.

UPPER NORTH TOWER BEDROOM & BATH HIGHLIGHTS:
The upper north tower sits opposite the master and is sometimes referred to as the “other master”. Beautiful views, vaulted ceilings, California king bed, a Terry Redlin print and a 32” wall mounted HDTV complete this room. The bathroom features a granite counter top, complete wrap of tile and cedar along with a glass enclosed shower.

THEATER ROOM:
Comfortable seating for ten, an Infinity surround sound system with 300 watt sub woofer, popcorn machine (pre-measured packets provided), HD projector with Direct TV, Blu-Ray/DVD and Roku to watch Netflix with your account make this a perfect place to watch the game or have family movie night.

SUNROOM:
Lake views, rustic décor (including trophy muskie mount and carved stump coffee table), a heated travertine floor and over sized wicker chairs make this an ideal place to enjoy morning coffee. This is the best place to watch the deer run through the yard.

LIVING ROOM, DINING & BAR
The living room features a cozy sitting area with two Bernhardt plush leather sofas and matching loveseat around the warm stone fireplace. The massive main dining table was hand made in house and harvested from an oak tree on the property. It has has seating for twelve with two beautiful chandeliers overhanging. The log bar area is the perfect place to relax and watch the game.

LOWER LEVEL BEDROOMS:
The two lower level bedrooms sit beneath the master and share a bathroom. Each features a memory foam queen, high thread count cotton sheets, wall mounted HDTVs and rustic décor.

OTHER FEATURES:
Commercial grade game tables including air hockey, foosball and ping pong round out the list of things to do on a rainy day. A hotel grade water system allows all showers to run together without pressure loss. A water treatment system provides bottled water quality right from the tap.

INTANGIBLE FEATURES:

4/5 Good

Great family vacation home for large families!
Cranberry Castle definitely encompasses the feel of the Northwoods getaway! Plenty of room for all family members and lots of activities located inside the house. Outdoor fireplace is amazing, and on cooler nights provided perfect warmth to hang out in shorts and a t-shirt. Only drawback for our party was the pier location. This is tucked off to the side in the corner of the lot, which is kind of out of the way, and its hard to watch the kiddos or keep an eye on things out on the pier if you need to.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing all around
House was beautiful with plenty of entertainment options both inside and outside. Wonderful space for our large group. Clean and well kept. We’ll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing!!
Cranberry Castle is an amazing property and hard to imagine how it could be any better. Location, amenities, and cleanliness are all top notch. Brandon was super responsive and a pleasure to work with. My family and I had a fantastic time!!

5/5 Excellent

perfect large family lakefront home
Fabulous lake that was shallow, warm and pretty calm was perfect for young kids. They loved the independence swimming out to the raft and using the kayaks and canoes while parents watched from the sandy beach area where the youngest kids were playing. The dock was perfect for renting a pontoon boat to go tubing and fishing and a water ski boat. But the funny thing was with all the games inside, air hockey was their favorite activity!
