Whether you love to enjoy the snowy outdoors or want to snuggle cozy by one of the fireplaces this Mansion makes for wonderful winter escape.  Ice fishing, snow shoeing, sledding and snowmobiling are some great winter activities.

Tainter Lake is approximately a 1605 acre lake located in Dunn county. It has a maximum depth of about 37 feet. Depending on the weather in the summer months, the water clarity can be low due to algae growth. Later in the summer months this lake is not the best for swimming.  May until July are the best months for swimming , but still a great sized lake for boating, kayaking and fishing!

This beautiful Lake property has an ideal location and offers tranquility and relaxation but still within a manageable drive to any desired attraction. Really a unique place!!!

"We stayed at the mansion on Tainter Lake when we visited for my dad’s 90th birthday. It surpassed expectations and made the whole trip extra amazing. Otters, eagles and other wildlife were the icing on the cake. I would absolutely recommend this for any family gathering"
