In addition to our beautiful log cabins, the original six-room motel /office, estimated to have been built in the 1950s, still stands and has been converted into long-term townhouse apartments for our lovely tenants. Our family lives on-site, as well, in the former office/manager's quarters. Although our cabins are self check-in, it is very important to us that you have a pleasant stay and that all your questions are answered, so we usually try to introduce ourselves upon your arrival (or the following morning for late check-ins). Our black lab, Ruby, and our collie mix, JoJo, are superb greeters, too. The office is generally open from sunrise to sunset, but if we do have other daytime obligations/errands and the office happens to be closed, we are only a phone call away. 

"A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving."

"My grandfather, Jay Tillman, was a dream driven, adventurous, yet disciplined man. After joining the military as a Naval pilot at a young age, he developed the skills and ability to put his blood, sweat, and tears into building his dreams. With a life long passion for helping others, he spent several years as a school teacher as well as an accountant. In his free time, he was family-oriented and enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, photography, and flying his VERY OWN airplane. When it came time to "retire", he began dabbling in real estate and came upon the property now known as Lakeview Log Cabins.

Lakeview Log Cabins was Jay's ultimate dream, and it surely didn't happen over night. With the purchase of the property complete in 1987, I spend my childhood watching my family pitch in to help Grandpa create his vision. It was a lot of hard (never ending) work, but, at the end of the day, the family was together. We'd enjoy a big feast after a long day's work, and, then, my uncle would take my cousins and I tubing, skiing, kneeboarding, etc. It wasn't until 1996 that the first cabin was built. I spent my teenage years seeing my Grandpa's vision become a reality. When the last cabin was built in 2001, it was sadly followed by my grandfather's tragic passing in August 2001. It wasn't until then that I realized he was the definition of the phrase, "If you choose a job you love, you'll never work a day in your life." His end goal was to build a family-oriented, pet friendly environment that not only his family could enjoy, but one that he could invite the world in to enjoy. I am ever so proud to be maintaining his dreams and standards today!!!

With the passing of my grandfather, my parents did everything possible to help keep Grandpa's vision alive and progressing. My mother followed in her Dad's footsteps and had become a school teacher. With her busy schedule, my Dad became the face of Lakeview Log Cabins for the last 10 years of his life before he passed in 2011 (at which point, I took over). To this day, I have yet to meet another person that compares to his motivation to please. The customer is always right. The customer is always first. If it weren't for our customers, we would not be here today! My Dad's work ethic, even in poor health toward the end, is what drives me today to be my very best. A work ethic like his is almost a "lost art" now-a-days. I will spend the rest of my life trying to perfect this "lost art" and hopefully instilling this in my own daughter."​

"By chance we landed at Lakeview Log Cabins for a weekend with some business to do in Wausau and some fishing to do on Lake Dubay. I would write a glorious review of the place but instead I would encourage you to go and see for yourself. Wonderful weekend!"

"This place is awesome. The cabins are steps from the lake and are white-glove clean. Even closer is a large fire pit anyone and everyone can use with as much wood as you can enjoy, along with marshmallow roasting and other tools, and seating, park-style grill, picnic tables and a hammock. The lake; the sunrises and sunsets; and the big sun, moon, stars and sky are great . . . The young lady who runs the place - Holly - had it passed down to her and would make her forefathers proud; she is as helpful,

chill and cheerful as can be . . ."

"Very professional staff/owner (Holly).

She welcomed us with open arms and looked after us the whole time. Very clean & comfortable cabins. We boated, tubed, kayaked, paddle boarded, and used the paddle boat. Children and grandchildren had so much to do. Never a dull moment. Even if it rains, there's plenty to do. Free WiFi, games, cards & movies. For a fun time and gracious service, stop in. We are already booked for next year. Would recommend to anyone."
