Harv's Vacation Rentals
Committed to meeting your property management needs throughout St. Germain & Eagle River.
Why consider Harv's Vacation Rentals?
When you arrive at the lake, all you see for the first day and a half is WORK! Or perhaps you turn into the driveway only to discover a tree has fallen on your cabin, or you have suffered storm damage? Maybe you’ve run out of propane, lost heat and discovered the water pipes have frozen or worse, burst? Or perhaps you just need that peace of mind knowing that someone is watching over your lake property while you’re away?
Harv’s Vacation Rentals is here for you!
Perhaps you are unable to use your lake property as often as you’d like. Let us rent your lake home or cabin out to visitors longing for a week to experience why YOU bought it in the first place! Or maybe you are currently renting your property out, but have been driving up to clean each week before new guests arrive. This is not a pleasant way to spend your summer, not to mention the expense!
Harv’s Vacation Rentals will work with you to obtain the highest weekly rate possible based on the current market. You retain the right to select the dates you wish to use the property, while offsetting a few of the costs of holding your property.
Here’s How It Works
Harv’s Vacation Rentals will advertise your property.
Guests will receive superior customer service from the time they make a reservation until they drive out of sight!

Joe & Terry Backis Peace in the Pines
Debbie spent 12 years in management for the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club and then took a job in property management. Kevin spent many years in the manufacturing industry as a buyer. In addition, he provided security services to the Brewers, the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee’s SummerFest. Together we formed a business that provided cash handling services to Milwaukee’s GermanFest and IrishFest and were responsible for cash receipts in excess of $500,000.
After vacationing in the area for a number of years, we moved our family to St. Germain from Milwaukee. In 2004, Debbie went to work for the St. Germain Chamber of Commerce and witnessed firsthand the value of tourism to our area! Kevin established Hammerin’ Harv LLC, providing handyman services to the community. Our daughter, Courtney and two Bishon pups make up our family. We are grateful to be living and working in what we consider to be “the most beautiful place on earth!”
We look forward to serving you!
