About Rob and Terry Hillerich

Terry and Rob Hillerich have owned Deer Lake Resort since 1990 and reside in Northbrook Illinois just North of Chicago. We purchased this property for the privacy that it offers and started renting when friends told friends what it was like. We are now a Wisconsin Licensed Hotel and typically are booked 1 year in advance with a 95% rebooking rate.

Why Rob and Terry Hillerich chose Presque Isle

If you are looking for privacy in a North Woods setting your search is over.

What makes this lodge unique

With almost 2 square miles of property surrounding our private 40 acre lake and a 1 mile long driveway, you and your friends will experience a true 'Northwood's' getaway. The nearest home is 1 1/2 miles away and we are surrounded by many miles of paper company forests. The 9,000 square foot house gives you plenty of room to get away indoors as well.

I had no Idea that you could rent a place like this! Great swimming, boating, hiking- just everything outdoors was great. Electric pontoon boats made it easy for Grandma to get in and out of for her favorite past time- fishing. The house has tons of space and a FREE game room that we all enjoyed. We will be returning.

Most relaxing get away!!

  • 5 of 5

My Family has been here two times for family reunions. It is a great set up for a big group of people. All kinds of room to hang out, very comfortable, cozy and private. The lake is very refreshing to swim in the summer, which is when we come, we like the warm weather. The boats are great just to cruise around the lake and we always catch fish!!

So many trails to hike, explore and take our 4 wheelers on. I can only imagine what a blast on snowmobiles it would be! It is the perfect place to go for a complete and total get away from your routine. We hate leaving. Have a date for this next summer again!! Can hardly wait!!

Oh.... and the owner is a great cook and fun to hang out with!! : )

Thanks for a great time!! see you soon!!

No where else like it!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been lucky enough to stay at Deer Lake for a couple of vacations. There really is no where else like it. We always feel a sense of solitude and great fun. The loons calling at the end of the day is a perfect way to enjoy each other and the sunset. We also appreciate the availability of owners, Rob and Terry. We had some simple questions for them and there was an immediate response. Thank you for maintaining and nurturing this very special place.

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

Deer Lake is a unique location. It is so peaceful and quiet, a great place to destress. The lodge is immaculate and has everything you need to have a home away from home. The property is gorgeous with trails to hike or ski, with a private lake as your backyard. To spend your vacation here is to have a magical experience that you will not forget. Every time I have visited, I leave with wonderful memories.

WOW! The updated design is fantastic. Our family has enjoyed coming here for 25 years. Our children have developed a pure and loving relationship with wildlife and the natural beauty of the unspoiled outdoors. The unique setting with the ultimate privacy has really allowed us to have quality, family quiet time. Our children still come with us to Deer Lake because we truly cannot get enough! Our holiday trip this year was the best ever. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jimka, The recent additional bathroom, 5 other bath remodels, and updating throughout the house have been well liked by all our guests. Your family returning each year to enjoy the privacy of our woods and lake makes it all worthwhile for Terry and I. We appreciate your comments!
