Called Wisconsin's most famous haunted house Summerwind did invoke images of fear and foreboding.  It sat among a stand of pine overlooking West Bay Lake in northern Wisconsin.  This once proud mansion had fallen into disrepair as vandals, bats and the harshness of the Wisconsin winter combined to reduce the structure to a  mere shell of it's former glory

Ceaser,

I don't have any info on this site, but I have to say this:

I pity the people who chose to steal the door....Who knows what imprints they carried off with it?

I'm sorry the structure burned down in the 80's - You can see how gorgeous it once was. And here's what's sad to me - I believe that buildings absorb the emotions of their inhabitants. So, in this case, this home experienced an awful lot, and then to be abused in this way...Well, I find it disturbing.

Maybe it is better it burnt, after all - Kind of like euthenasia, in a way.

Hi, I too am one who is very sorry that Summerwind is no more! But I wanted to let you know that there is a new forum that I found just today and they do have some pictures. Would love to see someone post some more pictures and maybe share some stories?

I agree with Holly completely on this. It was a good thing for it to disappear, it was a draw for the wrong sorts of attention.

My attention has recently been drawn towards the Summerwind property and I am looking for any information on person(s) who is/are the current land holder(s).

I watched a PBS documentary on Summerwind just a couple months ago. You could try doing a search (on either google or on the TPT -- Twin Cities Public Television -- website) and see if you can root out a copy.

I don't think you can reach it anymore. The building itself burned down completely, and I believe the last owners put up a fence to keep people away. Being as well known as it is, I would assume law enforcement make frequent stops to check on the property.

I'm not looking to trespass or invade upon a persons private property, I am looking to buy.

Welp! I'd start at the County level and go from there... see who has the deed on the land.

I cannot find any immediate information on that parcel at this time.

Thank you for looking into it, I appreciate your help very much. I have started a localized search for the deed holders and am hoping to turn something up.

I'd try Oneida County? It must be near Eagle River/St. Germain.
