Property description

Cabin is 15 feet off lake and sits privately on 8 acres of natural woods with a dock for your boat or our Pontoon, Canoe, and/or Kayak rentals. Swimming, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking, and canoeing are fun activities on the lake. (Boat / Watercraft Rentals are available for you to arrange with us, local rental companies or boat dealers.) This lake is approximately 300 acres which accommodates 29 houses / cabins. The Pine Ridge Hunters and Hiking Trail is within walking distance of the property. You are likely to see Bear, Deer, Beaver, Otters, Bald Eagles, Heron and Loons during your stay. Many restaurants, 4 golf courses, 2 grocery stores, entertainment and shopping are within 2 to 10 miles.

Restaurant details: Restaurants ranging from Bar and Grill to Family Style to Fine Dining are as close as 2 miles to 10 miles.

The Cabin Property: The atmosphere is casual, fishing for Sunnies, Crapies, Northern and Bass.. Swimming is best in late June through mid August, unless you don't mind cool water.

Gatherings around the campfire in the evenings is a must. Sunsets are beautiful, stars are brilliant and the rays of the moon falling across the water is peaceful and serene. Fall to sleep with the call of the loons.

Get away from it all or take a short jaunt to town to mix it up with the locals and other area visitors. Lively entertainment available most weekends. It's YOUR CHOICE.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1955

About: Fred's Grandfather purchased the property in 1935. Grandpa, Dad and 2 Uncles built the cabin in 1955-56 by hand with trees off the property. They cut, pealed and bleached the logs devoting many hours when not working their regular jobs so that we could enjoy the outdoors with shelter to return to in inclement weather. We enjoy observing and interacting with nature. It is our place to get away-from-it all, not worry about getting all prim and proper unless we want to. Of course, we can get creative and find many things to do outdoors and attending local activities available in the communities around us too. Our Grandchildren love coming to the cabin, exploring the woods, swimming, boating, fishing, wild berry picking in season, eating well, making up games, running around, building camp fires, making smores and listening to stories; some real some made up (if you can imagine that).

Why Fifty Lakes:
This is a unique experience. No hustle or bustle, good fishing and swimming, private location, limited noise of other people and their kids. Our goal is to provide a vacation experience with positive, good memories to take home.
