Welcome to Sandy Bottoms Chalet! We spent years looking for a lake home that would be just right for our family to relax, play and make memories together...and a sandy lake bottom was a top priority. We discovered this wonderful, private getaway, which is the perfect blend of peaceful retreat and deluxe home-base for outdoor adventures and fun throughout all seasons. We are excited to share our cabin and everything the area has to offer with you.
Our two story chalet-style cabin is situated on the beautiful Minong Flowage, an expansive 1587 acre lake in northwestern Wisconsin, offering excellent swimming, fishing & water sports. There are numerous islands with little bays to explore by kayak, canoe or motor boat. The shoreline is heavily wooded with pine and hardwoods. Minong Flowage is a sportsman's and recreational lake with high quality lake water and a sandy bottom. Swimming is great off the dock or you can venture out to swim and picnic on nearby Sand Island, a beloved lake attraction for locals and visitors alike. We are just a 1-minute drive to the Totagatic County Park which offers a beach, campground, park and boat launch. We have 70 feet of dock that provides multiple mooring options for your boat and a dedicated spot for a pontoon. We offer a new, 22'- 10 person- Sylvan Pontoon- for separate rental (other boat rentals are available nearby). Minong Flowage is also connected to Cranberry Lake, providing another 169 acres of lake to cruise and explore.
