Property description

Tastefully restored 1930's rustic cabin with 100 ft of frontage on 14 acre quiet, no wake Knight Lake, only 20 miles from Wausau or Tomahawk, with rentals from May into October. (see all reviews of same listing @ vrbo.com/621277)

The 'Hemlock Hide-Away' Cabin features fieldstone fireplace, vaulted knotty pine ceilings, skylights and expansive front windows overlooking undeveloped shoreline and western sunsets. Compact twin bunkroom sleeps 4, with additional comfortable sleeping space in the Great Room for 3 with twin daybed and queen sleeper sofa. Electric baseboard heat and wood burning stove.

Screen porch with sitting area exudes privacy surrounded by towering hemlock pines and shoreline view. Fully equipped kitchen and inside plumbing; full bath with walk-in shower, sink and flush-toilet. There's even an outhouse for anyone who wants to bring back the good ol' days!

Glorious surroundings for nature lovers interested in hiking, biking, birding, fishing, swimming, or just lounging lakeside on a loveseat swing with a good book... a perfect spot for writers, spiritual seekers, or escapees from the heat of the summer south.

For grandparents, here's a chance to recapture the memories of summer vacation in the northwoods in an 'On Golden Pond' like setting. Couples, friends and families can break away from the distractions of work and high technology and soak in a summer week, month or season finding restoration in the beauty in nature and relationships.

Rentals are primarily offered by the week, 6 nights (Friday 3 pm to Thursday 11 am); Other options and Weekends when available, with 2 night minimum. Private dock and use of boat + gas grill included with rental. Fish for bass, northern, crappie and bluegills.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Mark and I are retired health care professionals living in nearby Merrill, 15 minutes south of the cabin. We spend much of our summer at the lake with our golden retriever, Sadie. Mark was an avid mountain biker and cross country skier judging the local terrain to be some of the best in the midwest. Although a disability has modified activities and brought early retirement, we still enjoy the lake surroundings for biking, hiking and swimming. Participating in a shoreline restoration project on our lakefront property which is the first of its’ kind in Lincoln County has been an exciting experience dovetailing with our philosophy of environmental sustainability and protection.

Why the Owner Chose Wausau:
While still in the workforce back in 1994, we jumped at the chance to purchase a cabin in this beautiful spot so close to home. Many evenings during the workweek, we enjoyed supper on the grill, enveloped by the evening breeze across the lake and watching the sun set. There are a total of 2 year round homes and a few sparcely used summer cabins on our dead end road that enters along the east side of the lake, which makes for little traffic passing through. Another cabin with ideal views of the lake came up for sale and sparked the dream of a rental business in retirement and the goal to promote the quality of the peaceful environment of this precious and dwindling resource. The friendly spirit and support of the neighbors and has made this dream possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Some of our favorite things to do at the lake: •Watching the fish surface to feed in the evenings and listening to the breeze through the pines or a chorus of frogs as an early summer evening approaches. •Detaching the floating dock and trolling out to fish or swim from the raft. •Lounging in the water, floating on rafts •Relaxing in the love seat swing watching for eagles, heron or deer feeding on the shoreline •Family bike rides through back roads to the Mennonite store in Gleason for an ice cream cone or old fashioned bulk candies •Sipping Coffee or iced tea on the screen porch cooled by the lake breeze •Looking up at night to spot a barred owl peering down at us from the pine branches right just above our heads •Gazing at the night sky illuminated with a harvest moon or stars undimmed by city lights. The cabin has been a wonderful guesthouse for visiting friends and family. Some of our most precious memories of time with our kids are centered here, including story telling around the campfire, graduations and 4th of July celebrations.
