Jung’s Birch Lake Cottages

Quiet Comfort in Northern Wisconsin

Thirteen miles south of Minocqua, our three-cottage hideaway rests along the hushed shoreline of Birch Lake. It’s a noiseless little place—a summertime retreat to traveling families for nearly 40 years. We hope you’ll make a stay at Jung’s Birch Lake Cottages a part of your family’s tradition.

Our Lakeside Cottages

Stay in one of our side-by-side vintage cottages, Bayside and Lakeview, or enjoy the privacy of Tranquility


Sleeps 4-6 Guests

Built in 1959, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage overlooks a little bay on the northwest corner of Birch Lake. Bayside sits side-by-side with Lakeview, making the two a perfect pairing for larger families or groups. The interior of the cottage, paneled in natural knotty pine, offers an old stone fireplace that's been retrofitted with gas. Take in the view from large vista windows, enjoy the breeze on the wraparound deck, or walk down to your own private dock.


Sleeps 4-6 Guests

With an east-to-west view of Birch Lake, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage is a mid-century sanctuary. Knotty pine covers the interior walls, natural light pours through surrounding windows, and a gas-retrofitted brick fireplace keeps things comfortable. Lakeview sits side-by-side with Bayside, making the two a perfect pairing for larger families or groups. Roast marshmallows at the fire pit, barbecue on the charcoal grill, or go fishing on your own private dock.


Sleeps 4-6 Guests

Taking its name from the serene natural setting in which it rests, Tranquility is situated at the southern end of Birch Lake on its own private lot. With two bedrooms and a full-sized bathroom, this charming little cottage affords privacy and intimacy for couples and small families. Paddle around the picturesque shoreline in the provided kayaks, enjoy company and conversation around the campfire, and witness sunrises and sunsets from your own private dock.

Offered from May through October, our vintage rental cottages are well suited for young families, empty nesters, and solo travelers alike. Anglers, backpackers, and bird-watchers are drawn to the natural beauty of the woods and water, while Minocqua and its attractions are just a short drive away.

Our Guest Reviews

We love coming up here—it is always a constant. No matter what happens the rest of the year, this place is tradition. It feels more like coming home every summer.

The Rulseh FamilyReturning Guests

We have been coming here for 10 years. Canoeing, walking the Bearskin, watching the stars, peace and quiet, and someone special to share it all with. Who could ask for anything else?

The Makarzyk FamilyReturning Guests

Thank you for a wonderful relaxing stay. Your cabin offered us all the comforts of home in a beautiful yet rustic setting. The leaves were just gorgeous in all their golden and red colors.
