                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1953

                      About the owner: I'm a north woods guy just retired . .Rocky (my chocolate lab) and I spend most of our time these days making the cabin fun for my family and friends and now our guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose Eagle River:
                      I guess I can say the cabin chose me.Purchased by my parents when I was just a toddler Its always been a part of my life.I have vacationed in many places over the years but there's no place like Eagle River and our cabin on Big Bass Lake.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The cabin has gone through many changes over the last 60 years all to benefit the four generations of our growing family but the original log homestead has always remained a constant..Its hard to find another place that the house and the lake seem like one big home. Wether you like peace and quiet and the sound of the loons,eagles soaring or swimming, fishing ,boating volleyball or just relaxing around the campfire you cant beat it.
