Serenity Lake is a beautiful 7-acre, private lake that is surrounded by over 500 acres of mother nature at her finest. We have four custom homes right on the lake. Whether you want to enjoy the serenity of the lake fishing, swimming, canoeing,kayaking or rowboating, or you want to enjoy the many trails walking, hiking, biking, snowmobiling or watching the many types of wildlife that are out there to be enjoyed, it is all protected and preserved for you and your loved ones' enjoyment. Fishing is excellent with (2013)large-mouth bass reaching 21 1/2-inches, walleye, 22 inches, crappie, 16 inches, perch 13 inches and bluegill, 10 inches (and no license required!)! Lake Arbutus Motorsports offers ATV rentals (on the trails 2 miles from us), jet-ski and pontoon rentals (on Lake Arbutus 2 miles from us)and discounts on all of them for being our clients!!

Each of our cottages/cabins are actually more of custom homes than cottages and each has its' own fire place, outdoor hot tub, fire pit, charcoal grill (just bring charcoal and fluid) and beach (and, yes, you are right on the lake in all of our cottages!!).

Tall Pines Lodge is a 4-bedroom/3-bathroom house. It has a large custom-rock fireplace, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the main floor and sits right on the lake. The pine ceiling and custom cabinets and the views outside are stunning. The basement has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and a large main room that has additional sleeping accomodations and is utilized as a 5th bedroom. Tall Pines Lodge sleeps up to 35 guests.

Pheasant Cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and was completely remodeled with custom pine. Pheasant Cottage also sits directly on the lake and with 14 windows, the views in every direction are breathtaking!! Pheasant Cottage sleeps up to 9 guests.

Eagle's Nest was named after the majestic bald eagles that have been observed flying over
Serenity Lake and perched high on one of the branches overlooking the lake. Eagle's Nest has spectacular views throughout from the loft to
the main floor and the entire home has been customized to optimize the outside ambiance. It has two large windows in each bedroom, eight in the loft, including four large ones and four custom ones.
The views from the living room and dining area make you feel like you are outside in the woods! Eagle's Nest is stuck back in the trees and is impossible to see the other cottages from where it is located allowing an abundance of privacy. It has two bedrooms and a large loft which is similar to two additional rooms (but open, hence the loft!) and has two full bathrooms. Eagle's Nest sleeps up to 17 guests.

Bear's Den is our newest cottage and is handicapped-accessible and more pet-friendly as it does not have carpet in the bedrooms. It is a 2-bedroom/1 bathroom cottage with its' own laundry room. It has all the amenities that Eagle's Nest and Tall Pines Lodge have, just a downscaled version of Eagle's Nest and with more custom pine, including on all the walls and hand-made custom pine cabinets. Its' porch is also covered, has a 4-person hot tub in front between the cottage and the beach along with its' own fire pit, identical to Pheasant Cottage and Eagle's Nest!!

As you can tell, Cottages On Serenity Lake can handle a couple, small families or large groups. And, you can do it all right here at Serenity

Our family of four stayed at the Bears cottage for spring break. It so happened that none of the other cottages were occupied - bonus :). The place is fabulous, cozy, luxurious and we truly enjoyed the serenity and proximity to Mother Nature. Hot tubbing and star gazing is an awesome experience.

The owner is extremely helpful, responsive and warm. Will visit agin in summer when we can swim.

Brian, we want to thank you so much for allowing us to stay in Pheasant Cottage. We had a lovely time. The cottage is very nice. Perfect for what me and my wife needed, a relaxing and refreshing time during the week over Christmas. The location is perfect with the beautiful lake, surrounding woods and trails, it is a great place and we will definitely be coming back in the future. The cottage does have everything you need! The jacuzzi was perfect on a cold evening surrounded by the snowy trees! Thank you again.

My boyfriend and I contacted Brian as we were looking for a last minute weekend getaway. He was very accommodating, helpful, and clear in his communication. The place was clean and well kept, and we had an amazing time relaxing in front of the fireplace and on the deck in the jacuzzi! It was serene, peaceful, and unforgettable. We will be back sometime soon! I highly recommend vacationing here!

My other half and I were looking for a romantic quiet weekend away (without the kids). We could have not asked for more!!!! The Bear's Den was very comfy, cozy, quiet, and relaxing!!! The Fall colors added to the beauty of the property. I really enjoyed having the privacy between the cottages, our own hot tub, beach area, and lake access. We also enjoyed paddling around in the canoe for the day, and walking on the paths around the property. The upkeep, cleanliness, and decor added to the comfort of the cabin!!! We enjoyed it so much we are thinking about a family vacation in the summer!!!

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 and what a treat walking the wooded trails.

Everyone enjoyed the stay sooo much last summer we would like to book for next summer! Thanks for everything!

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!

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!
May 12, 2014 Heather M.
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!
May 12, 2014 Jennifer V.
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!
May 12, 2014 Steven L.
I just wanted you to know that we had a wonderful time at the Tall Pines Lodge. The scenic private drive was breathtaking! The accommodations 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.
May 12, 2014 Jedd and Sarah
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!
May 12, 2014 Pattie and Zack D.
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.
May 12, 2014 Pat and Jack M.
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!
