Four Companies That Will Keep Your Northwoods Home Cozy


Here in the Northwoods, we are beginning to feel that telltale chill in the air, reminding us that summer is behind us and frostier weather is on its way. We’ve got big plans in the making for the winter ahead; a season full of snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing is right around the corner. But now is the time to start thinking about making our Northwoods homes as comfortable as possible during the upcoming colder months. And here are four of the local businesses we trust to help us make that happen.

Store Your Summer Toys and Make Room for Winter Ones

As the temperatures of the lakes and air begin to fall, it’s time to think about your summer toys’ winter home. The Toy Shop in Eagle River provides winter storage solutions for boats, RVs, campers, trailers, vehicles, and PWCs. The Toy Shop also provides boat shrink-wrapping and other winterizing services. You can trust that your boat and other summer toys will be safe so you have peace of mind while enjoying the amazing winter sports and activities the Northwoods region has to offer. Speaking of which, if you’re looking for a snowmobile for the upcoming season, The Toy Shop also has an impressive inventory of snowmobiles to purchase or rent.

Clear the Path to Winter Adventures

If you’re looking for a high-quality snow blower or snow thrower that will clear your property during the generous snowstorms that Northwoods winters bring, stop in at Laona Machine Supply—which has locations in Laona and Crandon—to shop from their unrivaled selection of outdoor power equipment. If your equipment is in need of some TLC after last year’s abundant snowfall, LMS is an authorized service center for Husqvarna, Stihl, Honda, Generac Briggs and Stratton, Kohler, Tecumseh, Kawasaki, Boss snowplows, Hydro-gear, and LCT with a reputation for providing excellent customer service.

Warm Your Feet at Your Own Hearth

After a day out on the trail or the frozen lake, we dream of warming our feet by the toasty flames flickering inside a handsome fireplace. Fireside Hearth & Home in Minocqua helps make that dream a reality. Choose from gas, wood, pellet, and electric fireplaces, stoves, and outdoor products for a hearth that suits your style and budget.

Rest Assured You’ll Stay Warm in the Northwoods’ Chilliest Conditions

On a chilly, stormy day, the last thing we want is to be surprised by a power outage. Williams Electric & Mechanical in Mercer not only ensures that quality electrical and mechanical work is done in your Northwoods home to prevent unnecessary issues but also sells, installs, and services emergency standby generators so you know you’ll have power, even in the bleakest of storms.
