And we are open all year long with each season offering its' own eloquent beauty!!
We can accomodate from 2 people to well over 60 persons, and do it in a very private setting!! While being right on your own private lake with excellent fishing, swimming, your own hot tub, fire pit, fire place and over 500 acres of mother nature full of trails**, whether you're a family reunion of 60 persons or a corporate retreat, or simply celebrating your anniversary with your husband or wife, mother nature will be there to provide the ambiance of wildlife in its' most natural element!! And check out our rates!!
"About half way through our week long stay in Disneyland, my son Sean asked if we were still going to get to go to Serenity lake because he wanted to be able to fish and play in the sand. I guess it just goes to show you that you can't beat the simpler things in life! By the way, we had a great time again this summer!"-- Stephen M. Family
We have 4 custom homes (each with air-conditioning!!) that are all right on our very own private spring-fed lake. Each home has everything your home has except we have added our own rustic or custom pine accents in addition to being out in the middle of mother nature and on a very private (no public allowed!) lake. The views from each of these homes are nothing short of spectacular with custom windows (and many windows) in each one! Even for those who choose to stay inside will feel like they are a part of mother nature!!
The only development that has been done at Serenity Lake is trails have been put in or maintained (from the previous owner) to allow ideal snowmobiling, horse-back riding, or for the ones even more energetic, walking, hiking, mountain-biking and cross-country skiing can be enjoyed and will ensure everybody will be worn out at the end of the day.
"When we walked through the front door, my mouth dropped open and I just kept saying WOW, WOW!! We couldn't believe how nice, clean and spacious it was with sooooo many beds. It would be perfect for a family reunions. The jacuzzi was wonderful and right off the deck and what a treat to have a washer/dryer on site. The lake was beautiful annd what a treat walking the wooded trails." -- Bob and Chris W.
Serenity Lake is a 7-acre private lake that is surrounded by over 500 acres of beautiful nature at its finest. The only part of this property that is or will be developed will be around Serenity Lake. The property was bought to retire on and will be primarily left alone and preserved.
Only clients that are renting (and their guests of course) Tall Pines Lodge, Pheasant Cottage, Bear's Den or Eagle's Nest at Serenity Lake are allowed on the property. If somebody would like complete privacy at Serenity Lake, which is very popular with snowmobile or horseback ridng, or church groups, corporate retreats and family reunions and anniversaries, the entire property can be rented. Imagine having your own lake for your family, loved ones or group! A good example is family reunions or anniversaries. You can rent all four cottages and have exclusive access during the time you are renting.
"Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful time my husband and I enjoyed while staying at your cottages on Serenity Lake. It was our third wedding anniversary and the peace and tranquility we embraced while there leaves us speechless. The cabin was nothing short of spectacular including the decor and all the surroundings, and the hospitality shown to us was incredible."
-- Pattie and Zack D.
Another group this is popular with are corporate retreats. it allows many people to get together for everything from team-building, meetings or for simply taking a break to refresh the staff!! For families or any type of large group, Serenity Lake is ideal to accomodate for so many people.
"Serenity Lake was more than we even imagined. Everyone agreed it was the best spot we had been to in our 10 years of doing this trip!" -- Heather M.
If you are just interested in taking your family on a wildlife adventure (see Photo Gallery), you can see many animals and birds including deer, raccoons, squirrels, porcupines, fox, different species of hawks, bald eagles, owls, blue jays, turkey and many more including small birds so red, it makes red cardinals appear dull!
From the Southeast corner, the property extends one mile North and one mile West and the perimeter alone is over four miles!! When riding snowmobiles, it is very easy to become disoriented, though it is difficult to get lost. The trails are marked well and there is a trail map available so you can check where you are at any given time. Please do not go off the trails as you could very easily get lost. As new trails are opened, they will be marked and added to the trail maps.
"Just wanted to tell you again how much our family loved our stay at Tall Pines. We were awed at how cozy and comfortable the property was... " "It truly felt like home! We enjoyed all the amenities but I think we most appreciated the peace, relaxation, and serenity (no pun intended!) we felt there. Our stay exceeded our expectations"
-- Jennifer V.
Each trail has been designated a different animal or bird name that has coincided with the animal or bird seen in the area. Porcupine Trail actually had a mother and baby porcupine living in the area when we named it.
"I just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time at the Tall Pines Lodge. The scenic private drive was breathtaking! The accomodations were nothing less than perfect. We had everything we could possibly need." "Excellent... Excellent... Excellent... Excellent!! That's what sums up our experience with your property. I can't wait to rent this property from you in the future. I attached some photos of our weekend. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed our time at the lodge." -- Steven L.
Deer Trail was named after crossing an actual deer trail (there's a hint to all you deer hunters!) three different times while making it. As deer have been seen EVERYWHERE on the property, any of the trails could have been named Deer Trail. We figured it was definitely fitting though as the trail is partially an actual deer trail. The only animal we have not observed on the property is a black bear, though they are around, so be careful.
If you enjoy boating, Serenity Lake offers a beautiful canoe or kayak ride to enjoy with your children. If you have a boy scout or girl scout group and you want a good place to teach how to canoe or kayak, Serenity Lake is perfect for this. We now offer canoe and kayak rentals (go to bottom of our Rental Rates page!) You should reserve your canoe (s) when you book your reservation to ensure availability. Hatfield Sports Shop (715-333-5009) has every kind of bait you will need and will give you a dozen free crappie minnows just for coming in! The also offer our clients 10% discounts on the many services they offer such as canoe or kayak trips, lake or river fishing, ice fishing and guided hunts! Black River Falls Canoe Rental (715-284-8136) has different services available as well and offers our clients a 10% discount for their packages.
"We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary at Cottages At Serenity Lakes. Since we have returned home, we have recommended your property to several people.""It was absolutely heavenly!"
"Thanks again and we'll be back!"
-- Pat & Jack M.
Serenity Lake is partially spring-fed, and will continue to keep the water cool even during the warmest months. The top of the water in Serenity Lake is very comfortable while a couple feet down gets nice and cool.
Swimming will probably be your children's favorite activity. And if they CAN get bored with swimming, there is volleyball, horseshoes and various other activities that are available besides the walking, hiking, bicycling, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, etc. And in the winter time, you can add the snowmobiling, ice-skating, ice-fishing, snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing to this list. Bruce Mound down-hill skiing and tubing is less than 10 minutes from us!!
"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. The Cottages At Serenity Lake are beautiful! Sarah and I had a wonderful and relaxing time. We will be sure to come back and let our friends & family know about this place!" -- Jedd & Sarah
The nicest thing about all these activities, is you can do them ALL while at Serenity Lake!! You don't have to drive to any of these to enjoy them as they are all available ON the property!! There are very few recreational areas that make it so convenient for you to just bring the ones you want to spend time with and your toys or pets (i.e. fishing gear, canoes, kayaks, snowmobiles, horses, dogs, etc.) and plan on enjoying wildlife habitat in its most natural form.
Snowmobile riders will immensely enjoy the ambiance of riding right from your cottage to the public snowmobile trails. If some of you would like to ATV or snowmobile on the public trails, the snowmobile trail goes right through our property and the ATV trails are 2 miles from the property!!
Lake Arbutus, which is 835 acres, is only 2.5 miles. Lake Arbutus Motorsports (see logo at bottom of page) also rents jet-skis and pontoons on Lake Arbutus, as well as ATVs on Jackson and Clark County Trails, and they will give our clients a 10% discount on any rentals.
"Everyone enjoyed the stay sooo much last summer we would like to book for next summer! Thanks for everything!" -- Jennifer K.
Lake Wazee is the clearest and deepest lake in the state and is only 12 miles. Black river can be accessed as close as 1.5 miles. Serenity Lake is stocked with large mouth bass, blue gill, black crappie, yellow perch and now walleye!! And since it is a private lake, you do not need a fishing license!!
The fishing has been excellent! Our intention is that our fish will be managed to reproduce on their own so the lake will be independent and not require routine restocking allowing larger fish to be caught. And since the public is not allowed to fish on the property, the lake will not get fished out!
And if that is not close enough for many activities and you would like to go into town, Hatfield is 2 miles and has a few excellent restaurants. Black River Falls and Interstate 94 are both 7 miles, Eau Claire and La Crosse are less than an hour away. Minneapolis/St. Paul is 2 hours away.
"Our families go on vacation every year at different places. Well, we will no longer be going to different places because we found our permanent vacation spot!"
"Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation and memories." -- V., O., K. and the T. (four family names).
In addition to being spring-fed, Serenity Lake is fed by a spring-fed creek that comes in on the west side of the lake. And there is nothing like seeing the reflection of the beautiful trees off the surface of the lake.
We searched for a pristine piece of property that could offer everything a person could desire from nature. With Serenity Lake and such a large amount of property, we have found nothing that compares to this. It truly is a piece of paradise!
So whether you are planning on spending your vacation time snowmobiling, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, fishing, canoeing or kayaking, hunting (special pricing), snow-shoeing, ice-fishing, cross-country skiing, ice-skating, sledding, down-hill skiing or tubing (not on our property) or just relaxing and enjoying the beauty of nature during summer, fall, winter or spring, as each season offers its own beauty, Serenity Lake is for you. We hope to hear many wonderful adventures that will be enjoyed while you experience Serenity Lake.
"We had a great time at your Eagle's Nest property. It was perfect for our group. The location is beautiful! With all the snow we got, it was a Winter Wonderland! I would like to know if we can reserve it for (specific dates)?" -- Audra S.
We are confident that Serenity Lake will be a memorable experience that you will have again... and again... and again... and again... well, you get the idea!
So from the extraordinary entrance through the majestic pines, to the spectacular view of Serenity Lake, as you continue to your chosen cottage, you can leave your worries behind you and begin your adventure and memories that will stay with you forever!
"My girlfriend and I have made the 4.5 hour trip to Serenity Lake from Iowa City, Iowa twice now. Some might think that the drive time is a little extensive for a short weekend getaway, however those people have obviously never been to Serenity Lake! The only tough decision I've had to make while there is what hobby or form of relaxation I/we chose to engage in. The recreation that surrounds the Black River Falls area is boundless, and many activities can be found right on the property! We've enjoyed awesome cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling right on the grounds. Did I mention that my girlfriend is now my fiance? That too happened right on the property!" -- Doug B.
**Trails may be restricted during hunting season. Inquire for specifics!
