Enjoy the beautiful northwoods from the comfort of your Futuro spaceship!
Welcome to the home of the most unique vacation rental you have ever seen! Our Futuro POD was featured on an episode of the Extreme Homes National TV Show back in 2003 and is a wonderfully constructed, eccentric and rare home with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable and provide an experience you will always remember.
Think about waking up in the morning, lowering the steps of the POD and strolling down to your private access, 60 acre lake with a soft, sand beach. Relax on the dock while your children take the paddle boat for a quiet cruise around the lake. After dinner you look out at the glassy water with the sun setting on the shore, pick up the fishing gear and try your luck at some of the many walleye, bass, musky, or pan fish that inhabit the quaint lake.
Vilas county has the largest concentration of fresh water lakes in the world! Situated in one of the premier vacation locations in the country, northern Wisconsin's Arbor Vitae is enriched with a large number of beautiful, crystal clear lakes; excellent fishing; parks; camping; horse back riding; boating; and last but not least great, down to earth, truly friendly people.
Many amenities are included with your week stay at the Poggemann Pod. We will strive to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable and keep up with the motif as much as possible in the process

This is an absolutely beautiful lake! 60 acre long lake that is great swimming and even good fishing for the real fisherman! We have a new paddle boat and a canoe to utilize, please enjoy! We also have a fire pit by the water to watch the sunset or cook up some fresh fish for dinner...

The photos are enticing but wait until you pull up to this Futuro Home! My husband and I have been planning this trip for almost 2 years and everything about visiting the Pod Up North has been a vacation to remember and one we hope to repeat and make a tradition with our children. The area is quiet, the dock and lake are breath-taking, and there are plenty of things to do on the dock (fish, swim, boat), in town (enjoy locally-made-before-your-eyes fudge, free night time water ski show, and an outdoor playground), and inside the spaceship (we had packed a few games and toys and were so pleased to find Checkers, Spirograph and more inside). It was a first for so many things for our pre-school aged kiddos. I told myself before the trip this would be sort of like camping, but this trip was so much more. We relaxed, slept in, shared meals, learned new things, took lots of photos, and had access to a shower, kitchen, and electricity. I'm so happy that someone with a Futuro Home is kind enough to let others rent it out! We will be back!

This was our 5th year staying at the Pod. It never disappoints us. There is so much to do there...swimming, fishing, boating, and most importantly just relaxing! We love watching the wildlife-the deer, eagles, loons. Our family of 4 look forward to this annual summer destination!!

Our favorite Wisconsin vacation spot! A one of a kind stay but not a place to only go to once: we've stayed here multiple years because we love it so much! Not to mention the many referrals we've given Drew! Once our friends heard about our "spacey" vacation they have to try it out too!
Our family of five brings their sleeping bags and "camp out" in the pod as we watch our favorite space movies! The lake is beautiful and it's a perfect fishing spot for our children! Plus you can't forget the wildlife viewing...eagles, deer and more! Great spot to swim, fish, canoe, paddleboat, reflect, relax and enjoy a campfire viewing the stars!
Drew, the owner of the pod is amazing! He sure has a gem here hidden in the Northwoods yet so close to all the amenities of many small towns!

The Pod is a unique place to stay in with extra benefits of having your own private beach! We'll be back for sure! The pod was clean, private but near enough to town, and one of a kind! Making the reservation was easy and Drew was very accommodating with our travel dates. Our only gripe was we went in august and the air conditioner couldn't keep up with the awful heat. Next time we'll try to bring an extra unit or possibly go earlier in the summer.
