Thank you for all the kind words and wonderful photos that we have received!! When we opened this beautiful property as a business, we decided that we were not going to take photos of clients for advertising purposes. However, after receiving so many wonderful photos from you, our clients, we decided to create a photo album for everybody to enjoy!! And nothing shows the beauty of Serenity Lake like photos do!! And these are all from our clients who have been here!! So please enjoy our photos and if you have any that you would like to add to our Photo Album after you have stayed with us, we would love to have them!!
"We had a great weekend! It was so nice to just walk out the door to go fishing or sledding. The hill was just the right size for our age group! No broken bones but a few sore muscles. Don and I went out on the snowmobile trails and put on 60 miles, with the new snow, the trails were in very good shape and we had a nice ride. As you saw, we had a good time sliding and playing our snowbowling game on the ice and several of us even tried to get in some skating. It has been years since any of us have been on them and we have the aches to prove it!
We will be back next year with our group and most certainly will recommend your facility to others.
Again, thank you and Annna for the nice accomodations!"

"We want to thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful property with us. We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been better. The Bear's Den was cozy and the scenary beautiful. We used the hottub every day and walked on the trails. The deer came to feed on the green grass at dusk and we saw a wonderful snowfall on the day we left.
Again, thank you and we will be back.
Pat & Jack M."
"Dear Brian & Family,
We had a wonderful time this past weekend at Serenity Lake. Pheasant Cottage was a wonderful & peaceful experience-one we will definitely recommend to our friends. Betweeen the 5 of us, we can't think of one thing to suggest to add here at Serenity Lake-except maybe a cab service to ""The Mug.""
Thank you again for your generosity & hospitality!

"Paul, Ashley & Clarence had the best labor day weekend cooking up "stupid good" gourmet campfire meals.... breakfast, lunch & dinner. The dog, Clarence, had the time of his life in the huge yard, private beach, tall grasses & trees. Wow- the best R&R ever relaxing in the hot tub under millions of summer stars.
Thanks Brian & Anna!"
Brian, Anna and Alisa,
We truly enjoyed our stay in your cottages. Anna you have done a wonderful job of decorating them warmly, like home and both of you are so warm and welcoming. Thank you also for all the amenities. We lacked for nothing. You thought of everything..."
"May God bless your home and business!

"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! We had a blast & we are so sad to leave! Brian and Anna, you two are awesome!! You made sure every single need of ours was met so we could enjoy our vacation! We are going to miss Eagle's Nest, but we will be back next year for sure! The beds were even comfortable. I haven't slept that wellin a long time!
Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation and memories.
The V., O., K. and the T. (four family names)"
"Brian, Anna and Family- Thank your so much for a great time! Our fmaily gathering was a great success and we had a wonderful time!
The kids had a great time in the lake: 4 yr old Robert learned to swim, 10 yr old Mandi perfected paddling a canoe, and 10 yr old Nolee caught over 50 tadpoles: I convinced her to choose 3 to take home and set the rest free! Her mother was happy to hear that! The 3 teenagers had a fun time riding their mountain bikes everywhere they could, playing volleyball and generally having lots of cousin-type of fun! Thank you so much for providing the highchair, it made feeding 1 yr old Paxton and 2 yr old Abigail so much easier! And the playpen worked terrific also.
Great Gramma especially enjoyed the time in the hot tub and kept saying: ""Are we really all here together in this great place?" We surprised her with a cake for her 80th birthday (see photo of Gramma with her cake in the Client section of the Photo Gallery below)! And managed to have everyone pose for a family photo, 4 generations!
Thanks again, I will certainly recommend your cottages,
Happy 4th of July...
Val and Butch H."

"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 surroundings, and the hospitality shown to us was incredible. Of course we did not want to leave. I am enclosing some pictures that if you see fit, you may use on your website or for advertisement, or just whatever. We will definitely recommend your cabins to all of our friends and family. Thank you once again, for memories that will never be forgotten.
Pattie and Zack D."

"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 girlfiriend is now my fiance? That too happened right on the property!

"Hey Brian! Well, we are home now and really missing serenity lake!! We had such an awesome time. We are all definately comming out next year! Are the dates**** available for Eagle's Nest? My brother and his wife and two children may be interested in either the Pheasant Cottage or the Bear's Den for three nights during that week.
Once again, thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cottage! You, Anna and Alicia are wonderful people and we can't wait to see you. My kids are missing Alicia... give her a big hug from us!
Let me know about those dates so we can lock it in! THANK YOU!!
"Hi Brian! I just wanted to drop a line and let you now how great our stay was at Serenity Lake!!! Brent and I had a great time! The cabin was lovely and clean and well stocked! The land was beautiful and relaxing! We really loved our time there! We even got to scope out the other cabins to lan for the summer when we bring the kids up. We were so excited we told our families and they want a family trip up there as well! So thank you so very much for making sure our stay was all that it could be! We will be coming back to see you when we can enjoy the lake more in the warm months!! God bless you and your family for all that you do for People!!!
Darcy and Brent"
"We are so thankful that we discovered your place. It was absolutely perfect for what we were hoping would be a great "family reunion" weekend." "This time together was truly a blessing- cookie-baking, using the hot tub and relaxing by the fire gave us the chance to just enjoy being together.
Todd & Anne F. and children
"Thank you for your cabin. I liked the hot tub. I have a question, why are there pictures of eagles in each room? Thank you for everything.
Love Allie F."(Todd and Anne's daughter)
"Brian and Anna,
I would like to make a list of suggestions if I could think of any but everything was just perfect. We'll be back as soon as we can!
Just a note to let you know that our group had one of the best times ever on a weekend trip. We were in a QUIET neighborhood with the greatness of nature at our footsteps. We had wonderful accomodations and even got in some good fishing. We want to let you know that this is the BEST and your brochure does not do your property justice. If you need any recommendations we can offer our A+ rating for you. We will forward pictures when we get them back. Thanks again for all your help and hospitality.
Dwayne L. and the Spirit Riders"
"Thanks Brian. One of our group was already talking about coming up with a group from work. She took home a spare brochure you had sent me. I will also go through the pictures to see if any might be good enough to send you. I can't wait to show them to everyone here at work...... they are going to be sooo jealous!
Thanks again for everything,
Thanks so much for the long weekend at your cabin. Everyone in our group had a WONDERFUL time! Especially the kids. Let us know if you ever need references.
Thanks again for the use of your awesome property,
We celebrated our 26th wedding annversary at Cottages At Serenity Lakes. Since we have returned home, we have recommended your property to several people. Hopefully, they will book something with you so that they can enjoy it as much as possible."
"It was absolutely heavenly!"
"Thanks again- and we'll be back!
Pat & Jack M."
"Brian and Anna-
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- you've obviously worked hard to created such a wonderful atmosphere. It truly felt like home! We enjoyed all of the many amenities but I think we most appreciated the peace, relaxation, and serenity (no pun intended!) we felt there. Our stay exceeded the expectations we had and we hope to return again sometime in the future.
Thanks again for everything! May you have a happy and blessed new year!
I was wondering if you had the Eagle's Nest open for ****. We rented from you last year and had a wonderful time. We are hoping to celebrating our anniversaries once again! There will be six of us this year!
"As you can see the water activities were the best for our family group- hope these picures reflect how great a time we had!!
Here are some pictures of us at the Eagle's Nest. It was such an AWESOME time!!!
Connie & Ray K."
"Hi Brian and Anna,
Everyone enjoyed the stay sooo much last summer we would like to book for next summer! Are you accepting reservations? We are looking at early to mid August at Tall Pines Lodge.
Thanks for everything!
"This is Joey and Erin, we just rented Pheasant Cottage a few weekends ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to stay again.
We had such a wonderful time I am hesitant to tell others! Kidding. It is a gem I would like to keep for ourselves but that would be selfish. The cabin is literally a breath of fresh air!
We were wondering if it was available for next weekend the 20th thru the 23rd. We liked it so much we want to stay an extra night. I know it is late notice but we have our fingers crossed!"
Thanks in advance,
Joey & Erin
"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) next year? There will be 8 of us."
Brian and Anna,
"My boyfriend and I had stayed in your Pheasant Cottage last weekend and I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time! The cottage was so cozy and we appreciated all of the special added touches. It was definitely difficult to leave on Sunday!!
Next time we're looking for a quick getaway we know just where to go. Thanks again for such a nice, relaxing experience."
Erin and Joey
I don't know if you remember me, but this is Bianca G. I planned my weekend with you last year. I had a group of 20, from Chicago, and we stayed in Eagle's Nest and had a great time! I have pictures! Whether you can use them on your website, you can at least see how much we LOVED Serenity Lake! Also, there is a group who contacted me because they saw pictures of the fabulous house and also heard how great everything went. She would love to contact you. I hope all is well.
"As you know, my Explorer Post, Post 663 - Glacier Edge Council, stayed at your main lodge at Serenity Lake, the weekend of 12/7/07 to 12/9/07. I cannot believe how beautiful the main lodge is, as well as the surrounding area. The lodge is really big and really beautiful, with 3 spacious bedrooms and a large living room/dining room area on the 1st floor. The downstairs is equally amazing in that a large number of people could sleep in that area, and it is very comfortable. The fireplace in the first floor living room is great and the hot tub next to the deck was a huge hit with our Scouts. We had a lot of fun cooking in the kitchen and afterwards, watching DVDs on the large-screen TV. The double-car garage was an extra hit as we kept our cars in the garage so they did not ice up or get snow-covered during the evenings.
Thank you so much. The area was very beautiful as was your main lodge. I will send you some pictures of our stay when I get them from the other adult leader, who was taking the pictures."
Daniel A M.
"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 reunion. 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."
Bob and Chris W.
"Thank you again for everything. We had a wonderful weekend and the weather was unbelieveable. 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!"
"Like I said many times before, you have your own piece of heaven over there!! It's far enough from civilization to see the stars in the sky but close enough to Wal-Mart for everyday needs:-) My husband and I (and our babies) loved it!"
Kinga, Robert, and The Awesome Two (Gizmo & Amber)
"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. There were plenty of dead trees around for fire wood. 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."
"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
"Thank you so much for your hospitality here at Serenity Lake! We had so much fun with our family enjoying all the great things this area has to offer! What a beautiful vacation!"
Gina, Eric, Kai and Griffin
"We had a great time and what a beautiful cabin/house! The boys loved the loft area best but I loved it all! The hot tub was excellent, the view/scenery and the deer... Wow!! Thanks for everything!"
Steve, Cyndee, Chris and Cory
Thanks so much! It is beautiful! Your lodge is gorgeous! I'm very, very impressed! It's beautiful driving in! I want to thank you very much! The kids think this is great! Again, I really want to thank you. This is very, very slick! We all really appreciate it!
"We had a wonderful time! The peace and quiet is unbelievable! The A/C was a God send and what fun with the hot tub! We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did."
Dan & Barb
"Thank you so much for the beautiful, relaxing, quiet place for us to go! We plan on coming back next summer with more family & staying for a longer period of time. :)"
Sandra, Shawn & Connor
"Brian, we just got back from Serenity Lake this afternoon. We really enjoyed the cottage, though it is certainly more than a cottage! It is very lovely and the area is beautiful. The weather was perfect for cross-county skiing and there was a gentle snowfall while we were there. We saw something poke its' head out of the water and we saw a deer walk across the lake."
Brian, just wanted to thank you and your wife for the great weekend. My husband and I had a wonderful time and we hope to plan another trip for next year."
