Property description

Take a step back in time at this unique log cabin built in the early 1900's. Stone fireplace, original wood floors, tastefully decorated with interesting antique furniture and accessories from the logging era. The cabin sits only 30 feet from the shores of 1536 acre Prairie Lake, one of a chain of 3800 acre Chetek chain of lakes. Beautiful lot with towering pines and spacious yard. 150 ft of private level frontage, with private dock and sandy bottom great for swimming.

Watch the wildlife, fishermen, and skiers, from the large enclosed front porch 30 ft from water’s edge. Unique location on the lake allows you to view both sunrise and gorgeous sunsets. Gaze at the moon and stars reflecting off the water as you relax by the evening campfire.

Recently renovated kitchen and bath gives you modern conveniences. One car garage plumbed with hot and cold water, for fish cleaning. Public boat landing located right next door for easy entry into the chain.

Children will enjoy the local public beach, roller rink and horseback riding. There are also hiking and biking trails at Ice Age and Tuscobia Trails and the Lakewood Park directly across from the property.

The area has several Museums including Calhoun Memorial Museum, Pioneer Village and the Ice Age Museum.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing at the Chetek chain of lakes for 5 generations and have such great memories of the place and the people. We love to boat, fish and entertain our friends and family, the chain is the perfect place for that!

Why the Owner Chose Chetek:
We have been looking for vacation home for years and even bought some land at one time with the intention to build our perfect getaway. Although Chetek is 5 hours from home, we kept thinking why would we vacation someplace else? When we came across this log cabin we instantly feel in love with it. Our plan was to build a log cabin but why do that, this cabin was perfect, well-built, right on the water with a great history.
