“We have seven and eight year old kids. Finding a vacation spot that dad, mom, and the kids would enjoy was difficult.  We found our dream location at Castle Rock Lake.  You will not find a nicer lake or better waterfront developments.  I have known the developers for over 20 years. You will not find more honest or better developers anywhere.”

“We were at Clearwater for Memorial weekend and it is awesome! The kids are crazy about the floats and the new  slide. The water is so clear– Our son’s friends said it’s like the  ocean. The white sand and boulders had one of our relatives  reminiscing of growing up at the coast. Fish were jumping… I think  we even heard whooping cranes. Lots of fun. Thanks for everything.”

Every time I look out the door I remember how much I love it here. Whatever age you are when you move to the lake is the age you will remain. 
No matter where you live,  you will call it home.  At first they are your neighbors but then they will be your best friends. The sunsets are so amazing here. We wanted to give our children the same childhood experiences we had growing up. Family time, fishing, swimming and fun times spent with friends. So much sand, so little time! Crystal blue water, pure white sand, we’re not in San Diego Toto, we’re at Castaway Lake (at Copper Point)
-Keith and Loree Kramar

My wife and I bought in Copper Point in 2010 and we couldn’t be more pleased with our decision.   We enjoy visiting the many restaurants on the lake and love being able to take our pontoon over to the Castle Course to play golf. The Castle Rock Lake area is a sportsmans paradise with great hunting and fishing only minutes from your door.  After looking in the area for several years we were convinced that Copper Point would hold the best value for our summer home investment……..we were right!

As parents and grandparents, we couldn’t imagine a better way to bring our families closer together than owning a home at Stonegate. The pleasure my wife and I have had, watching our grandchildren enjoy all the amenities that come with ownership, is hard to put into words. What a truly wonderful gift it is to share family memories together. Memories that will last long after we are gone. Stonegate Lake ownership is truly a gift that will last a lifetime.”

“The only way our experience could be better would be if my summer home was my permanent residence.  Walk to the beach, kids are safe, friends at the lake and fun year round.  Leave all the hassles at home and get a truly great relaxing break.”
-George Olney
Stone Gate Lake and Copper Point at Castle Rock Lake

My wife picked up a brochure for lakefront developments at a rest stop on our way home from our son’s near Milwaukee.  It sounded intriguing, but we live hours from Castlerock Lake and I had no desire to build a lake home, especially one farther north than where we currently live. My wife would bring it up from time to time, so a year later I agreed to make a trip up to see the area just so she would let it go. We fell in love with what we saw and heard. Two days later we bought a lake lot. Now we have a beautiful lake home that is our little slice of heaven. Everyone at the lake is so friendly, it’s like an extended family.

For years we have searched for the ideal vacation / retirement property, and we finally found it at Stone Gate Lake Development. Stone Gate Lake is a beautiful lake surrounded by a friendly community, set in a magnificent location of Wisconsin. Breathtaking views of the lake and Buckhorn State Park give Stone Gate Lake  that “Up North” feel. And we can’t speak highly enough about Brad Pavloski. Pavloski Developers are the most considerate and conscientious developers we have ever worked with. We love the Castle Rock Lake area and highly recommend that others searching for Wisconsin property take a look at Stone Gate Lake Development. 
-Tim & Lynette Fennell, owners at Stone Gate Lake at Castle Rock Lake

Stone Gate…what a absolutely great place to wake up at each morning. My wife and I are both retired and looked for a place to build a new retirement home. Well, we found Pavloski Developments. What a pleasure it was to work with Brad Pavloski. He made the process very easy along with Creative Builders. If you enjoy the outdoors, fishing, boating, and abundant wild life to observe, try Stone Gate. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

I have known the developers (Brad and Pat Pavloski) since grade school and I’m so glad they had both the opportunity and the inspiration to create their developments!We purchased our lot at Copper Point in 2009 and it was one of the best decisions we ever made.  We built our lake home in 2012 and we love going there!  It’s so peaceful and relaxing to have the lake and beach right off the walk-out basement.  The kids love to swim in the crystal clear water of Copper Lake and the house is perfect for large family functions.  Our middle son is autistic and he absolutely loves cruising Castle Rock Lake on our boat – which is moored at the pier to which we are entitled as Copper Point lot owners.  We will often walk the 1.1 miles on the trails just to work out some extra energy and get added exercise.  Our youngest son never fails to ask to go to the clubhouse, which is another fantastic perk of owning at Copper Point!  Our residence is just outside of Madison, so the location for our vacation home is perfect – far enough to feel like you “left town” but close enough for even a day trip.

We have our home at Copper Point and we love it.  When my husband and I come alone it’s quiet, peaceful and so relaxing. When we come with our kids and grandkids we have a blast!  We come here all year long, lots of activities for everyone in the winter also but of course the summer is best. Castle Rock lake is so big we have plenty of room to do all our water activities; boating, jet skiing and tubing etc.  But best of all is the private lake.  It’s like having our own gigantic neighborhood swimming pool, very clean and inviting.  Except, we all get to play in the sand, jump off the raft, paddle board and kayak.  Then if it’s cold and raining out we still have the club house.  How much better can it get?  Needless to say we are happy that we finally were able to build our vacation home here.  
 Anne-Marie Martin Copper Point at Castle Rock Lake

We moved from Rochester, MN for a life rich in experience and quiet beauty. We love the activities that lake life delivers and the wildlife not found in a big city. Sharing these moments with our children was within reach in this development because of the fair prices and quality workmanship. This is the best thing we could have ever done for our family. We have been here for two years now and have loved every minute of it.

Stone Gate/Castle Rock Lake is a beautiful area for a family vacation home.

-Frank and Tamara Husak

The postcard that came in the mail advertising Castlerock Lake just seemed too good to be true, but we just had to go check it out. We had discussed getting a lake house for some time, but never really put any effort into trying and we felt as if the postcard was telling us something…. After taking the tour, we knew that Castlerock Lake was the place for our family! The wooded area, the quiet lake and the amazing lots sold us and we bought a lot immediately! We absolutely love our lake house and continue to make lasting memories with our family throughout time. Looking back, we should have purchased more than one lot!

“Our family has been vacationing in the area for years and thanks to Pavloski Development we now have a site of our own which fits our needs.  My young family couldn’t be happier with our new getaway and Creative Builders made sure we have a comfortable cabin to escape to.  At Stonegate we receive the benefit of an idyllic location only an hour away from Madison, while enjoying the type of quality that we love to share with our friends and family.”

My husband and I had been looking for the perfect property that was close enough to Chicago, but seemed like an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the work week. We found that dream in working with the Pavloski brothers. Their true professionalism, knowledge of the industry, and dedication and passion for Wisconsin are apparent in everything they do. 
-Sheila & Mark Hale

Pavloski Developments is military friendly and it showed in their dedication throughout the process of purchasing our lot and building our home. The developers ensured that we were satisfied along every step of the way and their commitment to making sure the Stone Gate area maintains its beauty is the primary reason we decided to move 20 miles and call this our home.
-Travis and Geena/U.S. Active Duty Military

“We had talked for years about a “lake home.” I grew up on the water on the East Coast and my wife grew up in La Crosse with its three big rivers. Our kids and their families are spread all over the country. As we approached retirement, we wanted a comfortable base from which we could visit our far flung family, but have family gatherings with fun activities for the grandchildren. Our home on Copper Lake is just that – sand beach and clear water for swimming right in the back yard and our own boat slip five minutes from the house that lets us cruise Castle Rock Lake and find some  of the best fishing in Wisconsin.”
-Keith and Linda Walker
Homeowners on Copper Lake

“My family decided to purchase a family get-away this year and quickly stumbled upon a property on Stone Gate Lake in New Lisbon, WI. The private lake is great and has a perfect beachfront and community center for the young kids to play. We also enjoy the 2 minute drive to Castle Rock Lake where we are able to boat and have adult fun.  The sunsets are great and so is the short drive to get here. We are very happy with our purchase.”
-David Sreenan & Family – Janesville, WI. 

When it came time for my wife and me to retire, we wanted to relocate in Wisconsin close to our kids in Madison. We looked all around the Madison area for a retirement home “on the water”. We looked first at the Stone Gate Lake Development. Although everything looked really good, it was our first adventure and we wanted to be sure that this was it. We then contacted a realtor in Madison and looked at nearly 100 other Lake front properties. None of these other places could measure up to Stone Gate Lake. Living on Stone Gate Lake has been everything we hoped it would be, we couldn’t be happier!
-Jim & Karen Braun/ owners at Stone Gate Lake at Castle Rock Lake

“My wife and I purchased our lot through Pavloski Development seven years ago and built immediately.  Working with the recommended builder and developers made the process almost seamless!  We have spent countless weekends year round enjoying one of the best lakes around and the clubhouse and other amenities in the Copper Point development!  We have recommended other friends to the area and look forward to our time there all year.”
-Mike and Laura Eaton
New Berlin, WI

We love family time at the cabin!  We have 3 kids and an extremely large extended family that love being active all year round.  Being on Copper Lake at Copper Point fits our family’s needs perfectly.  During the summer, we go for countless walks around the lake, swim, paddleboard, fish, and kayak right out our back door.  We walk across the street and hop aboard the boat to do some tubing, water skiing and just enjoy the “big” lake.    During the fall and winter we log more walking miles around the lake, ice skate, play hockey, snow shoe, sled, visit the rec. center, and just enjoy the coziness of the cabin.  Our family looks forward to pulling up the driveway every time we come because we all feel instantly relaxed.  We couldn’t ask for anything more.  This is a great place to create lasting memories with family and friends.
Tom and Kelly (Eden Prairie, MN)

Right from our first visit to Nepco Lake my wife Ann and I decided that this is what we have been looking for in lakefront property. The wooded lots, crystal clear waters, and short distance from our home in North Barrington, IL made our choice easy. We purchased three (3) lots from Brad and he has been a pleasure to work with. We are currently drawing up plans to break ground this fall. Our kids and grand kids are going to have some great times at Nepco Lake.
-Rich and Ann Stobart
North Barrington il.

I searched for the perfect lakefront property in Wisconsin and Michigan for almost 3 years.  Nepco Lake was never on my radar, only because the land was untouchable and unavailable during my search.  I walked the land with Brad Pavloski in January.  I had intended to purchase only 1 lot.  That day I made the decision to purchase 2 lots.  Looking back, I should have bought 3! Nepco stole my heart because of its pure beauty but the decision to buy was clear because of Brad’s vision and longer term plans in the area.  An unmitigated no brainer given my experience. Nepco Lake offers the perfect balance.  A clear, sandy bottom, Canadian type lake only 3.5 hours from Chicago with an upside potential seldom seen.  We will break ground on our dream lake house this fall.

We’ve spent the last 25 years visiting family in northern Wisconsin, especially holidays and summer vacations.  When the opportunity arose at NEPCO Lake, we jumped at the opportunity to see what the potential would be to own property ourselves.  What we found was an amazing lake that is reasonably located within four hours of our home in the Chicago suburbs.  Further, we were impressed with Brad and Pat Pavloski, and their development plans for the lake.  We liked it so much that we decided to purchase two lots instead of one.  We look forward to working with Brad & Pat when we decide to build our lake home at NEPCO Lake.  I recommend that you consider speaking with Brad and Pat as well.
-Chuck Sutton

Our first trip to NEPCO Lake was love at first sight.  The beauty of the lake, the trees and the sand moved us to act quickly to get our share.  You have to see it for yourself.  This lake property sells itself. Once you see this beautiful lake setting, you need to act on itbefore someone else does.  This beautiful lake splits the difference in time and distance between our home in the Chicago suburbs, and our son”s family in Minneapolis. We are excited about the stories and memories that will be created here.  We have been impressed with the support and the flexibility of the Pavloski’s.  I’d say it’s perfect if it wasn’t located in Packer country 🙂
-Tim Wensits
Chicago, IL

There is a lot to like about NEPCO, but I can’t put it in just a word or two, echoed by a friend who I took to the lake this summer.  You don’t need to stop for a long bathroom break..since you can pull right up to your home.  There is plenty of room to fish and tube.  You feel isolated and relaxed but can be at any food, clothing or hardware store in 5 minutes.  I made the right choice for a family lake house and love the house. 
-Chris Young

Having owned homes in Vilas County, Wisconsin for over 40 years, we decided it was time to find a lake development closer to our home in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.  We visited the Nepco Lake property and purchased a heavily wooded building site on the lake.  The Developers, Brad & Patrick Pavloski have been honest, straightforward and easy to work with. Looking forward to their continued success in the Nepco Lake Development.
-Dick & Nora Walther

You will not find any better aesthetically pleasing private access roads to lake lots in the state along with an exceptional utility infrastructure to match. Pavloski Waterfront Development left no stone unturned in preserving the integrity, history and rustic beauty of Nepco Lake.
-The Van Stratens

We looked for almost two years trying to find the right location for our future vacation home without much luck.  We couldn’t believe there is a 500-acre lake with beautiful, buildable lots left in Wisconsin, much less in a location that is half the distance compared to the other ‘Up North’ lakes we were looking at.  Nepco lake is perfect – it feels like a remote get-a-way but it’s minutes from anything you’d need. Brad was very easy to deal with and responsive to questions about the lake, the development, and the buying process.   We are looking forward to building our dream lake house soon!
-Patrick and Tricia Norby
Verona, WI

After searching for a weekend / future retirement home for over 7 years in multiple states, we knew we had finally found the right place when we first visited NEPCO Lake.   The beauty of the surroundings and the peaceful feeling of the area sold us immediately.  We also like the close proximity to Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point.  We are excited to be starting construction on our new place shortly.
-Dave & Melanie

After searching for the ‘perfect’ lake property for more than a year we had nearly given up.  It seemed like all of the perfect lots had awful homes or the perfect homes had awful lots.  Then we found Nepco.  We found a lot that is perfect and we can build our perfect home on it. We look forward to making a lifetime worth of memories there as our kids grow up (and we get old). Nepco has all the feel of an ‘up north’ setting, without the long drive or the pretentiousness.’  Thanks Brad!
