Mellen cabin description

KRAUSE CREEK LODGE is conveniently located 22 miles south of Lake Superior in the small town of Mellen. Every year that the ice caves form thousands of ecotourists travel to the area to witness this natural wonder. After a day at the caves enjoy your stay in our warm comfortable lodge. Krause Creek Lodge is a cedar sided 2brd with loft, 3/4 bath and large great room over looking a seasonal beaver pond on Krause Creek-a class one trout stream.

Set on 120 private acres bordering the Chequamegon National Forest, Krause Creek Lodge is tastefully decorated in a Northwood's theme. Easily sleeps 6. I provide cots for extra guests at an additional charge. The lodge has radiant floor heat and a wood burning fireplace stove. Built new in 2012, it is fully equipped with everything you need for a vacation. A recreational trail system borders the land so you can motor in on your machine and head right back out again. Grouse and deer hunters will be in heaven. You will never hunt all the land available to you in one life time. I can arrange semi to fully guided trips if you prefer as well as ATV and Snowmobile rental. Or just walk out the door and into the forest on your own. There is very little human pressure due to the remoteness of the lodge. A true Northern Wisconsin Wilderness experience on 120 private acres.

              • I have vacationed and hunted in this area all my life and learn new things every time up. Just let me know what experience you are looking for and I will get you set up! Hunting, Fishing, motor sports, sight seeing, fall foliage, or just a nice quite walk on the trail system are just some of the great activities. Or, just sit on the porch, watch deer, wood ducks and geese land on the pond. Sometimes doing nothing and soaking in the silence is all a person needs. ...moreless

              Krause Creek Lodge is located in Beautiful Northern Wi on the edge of the Chequamegon National Forest. The lodge is conveniently located about a mile and a half from Mellen Wi. The lodge is set on 120 private acres overlooking Krause Creek and a seasonal beaver pond. There are miles of ATV/walking/snow mobile trails that connect to the property. Machine right up to your front door for a quick drink or a hot refreshment and hit the trail again! KCL is located a short drive from Ashland Wi with a rich history of logging and Great Lakes shipping. Many festivals and attractions year round. Copper Falls State Park is a must see. It has beautiful water falls that line up in a series and cut deep gorges in the red granite of the area. Obvious recreational choices are ATVing and Snowmobiling. You can access hundreds of miles of local trails all throughout the national forest all the way to the UP of Michigan. The options are endless. If you are a hunter look no further! This is wild endless country laced with logging trials, swamps and hardwood ridges. Grouse, Woodcock,Monster White tail, Bear and even a resident herd of Elk are in the area. There are numerous wilderness lakes that receive very little fishing pressure so fishing is fantastic. Try your luck on a guided float trip on the Brule, Namekogan or the Flambeau. Both have world class fishing for Trout, Small Mouth and Musky. At the end of the day enjoy a warm fire in the lodge or sample one of the local taverns such as the Cayuga bar, Snow Creek or the Northern Lure. If you go to 'da lure' you have to try Kathy's pizza. She is the lodge owner and from Chicago. Best pizza in the Northwoods! KCL is a quiet, relaxing lodge that sleeps 6 easily and can accomodate up to 10. ATV's, SnowShoes and Snowmobiles are available to rent at added cost. Ask the Lodge owner for information. If you are looking to recharge in a Northwoods experience. Look no further!

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: The Haugers are a family of four who enjoy the Northowoods of Wisconsin and all that the 4 seasons have to offer. We frequently go to the lodge to snow shoe, snowmobile, hunt or just relax by a campfire or the fireplace.

              Why Mellen:
              If you seek quiet solitude or easy access for ATV or Snowmobiling that KCL is for you. Mellen is a 30 minute drive from Ashland Wi or 45 minutes from Hayward. The lodge is on the edge of the Chequamengon National Forest and in the Penokee Mountain Range. The trail system for Ashland County comes down the edge of the property so access is stupendous. This is a highly sought after lodging destination due to the amount of the lake effect snow we receive in winter and the miles and miles of trails to snowmobile or ATV on. Machine in and right out again. Very Convenient.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              KCL is very well appointed. I finished the entire cabin in a grade 2 knotty pine. The floor has been stained with an eco friendly vegetable dye and has been waxed to a high gloss. It has the appearance of marble. I installed radiant floor heat that can be turned up to the temperature you desire. Radiant heat warms the concrete floor to a nice comfortable temperature that heats the lodge very evenly. You can walk in your bare feet and not be cold. In the summer it has an opposite cooling effect as the ground generally stays at an even cool temperature. There are two bedrooms with new comfortable mattress and antique beds. A custom built ladder takes you to the loft where two more twin beds are located. I also installed a 297 feet deep well and an on demand water heater so there is always water for domestic needs and shower. The great room has lots of windows to give you a beautiful view of the beaver pond on Krause Creek. The Kitchen has all new appliances so you can enjoy a nice meal if you choose to cook. ATV and Snowmobile are available to rent and hunting/fishing guides can be arranged at an added fee.
