Pinewood Cottages retreat is just feet from Shawano Lake in beautiful Northeastern Wisconsin, which is sure to have a little something for everyone! These quaint vacation homes are located on the North shore of Shawano Lake, which is known for excellent fishing, water sports, and family fun. The entire lake covers just over 6,200 acres and has a maximum depth of 40 feet. At the end of our pier, the water is only about 4 ½ feet deep. This provides excellent swimming and fishing right off the dock. Our beach is situated on one of the few sandbars in Shawano Lake. These large sandbars are often a gathering point because the water is usually only 1-2 feet deep. These shallow waters are fun for so many reasons come summer! It's perfect for children, water games, or just simply relaxing with your toes in the sand! This offers that extra fun factor that not many other places have to offer! Call or email today, our 2018 season is filling fast!
