Tomahawk house description

'The Cabin' is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home situated on the beautiful Wisconsin River between Tomahawk and Merrill, WI. This region is a true treasure, providing sights and sounds of nature that you'll never forget. Remarkably, this area is beautiful, whether rain-or-shine, snow-or leaves.

There's nothing like being able to enjoy the river from early morning when the wild life is most active, into mid-day when boaters and swimmers (or ice fisher-people, snowmobilers and sledders!) are out and about, right on through the sunset to a truly star-filled sky. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers are perfect candidates as vacationers here. Active families as well as small groups of hunters, anglers, Fall Riders or 'girls-weekenders' looking for a true getaway will certainly enjoy the area.

Meal times are easy with a large open kitchen for cooking, tons of utensils, cook ware and dish sets, as well as two charcoal grills. Once you've filled up on your 'catch of the day' or 'bounty from your hunt' (or whatever you picked up at the grocery store!) put the dishes in the dishwasher, toss the beach towels, hunting gear or winter-wear in the washer & and dryer, fill your glass with ice from the ice maker in the fridge, and relax on big puffy sofas, love seats or recliners inside, or the deck/or patio furniture outside.

Our walk-out ranch has a patio with a small dining table on the ground level and a large deck off of the kitchen on the main level with a large table and chairs. We also have a portable hammock and a large bench swing with cushions near the water.

When it's finally time for sleep, choose one of the two bedrooms upstairs (main w/king bed, kids' room with bunks) or the two downstairs (each with a queen bed). Each level has its own bath; upstairs has a large tile walk-in shower and corner whirlpool tub and lower has a large walk-in tile shower, over-sized vanity & mirror.

                  Affectionately called 'The Cabin' our vacation home is situated on the Grandfather flowage, and is perfect for outdoor activities year-round: Summer activities generally revolve around water sports (ski/tube/wake board/jet ski), pontoon rides and fishing as well as wildlife viewing. In the Fall, Harrison Hills (ATV and snowmobile trails) and New Wood Forest (hunting) are popular. Harley enthusiasts will also find this property directly on the Fall Ride Route to Tomahawk. Winter activities include cross country skiing, sledding, sleigh rides (nearby) and ice fishing. Wausau, WI (40 minutes) has an indoor water park as well as a performing arts theatre, the Leigh Yawkey Art Museum, Rib Mountain State Park/Granite Peak Ski Area and mall/outlet shopping as well as extensive dining. Tomahawk (20 min) and Minocqua (1 hour) are 'North Woods' towns with antique, candy, ice cream, souvenir and specialty shops as well as terrific dining.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We grew up in Central WI near the Wisconsin river and missed being away from it. There's always some draw that a river has once you've been around it that makes you want to go back. This property and section of the river itself suits ALL of our outdoor interests very well, yet accommodates those days when we want to slow down a bit and perhaps watch our favorite team on TV (GO Packers!), play games, have a movie night, or read books.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tomahawk:
                  We were looking for a permanent vacation home that would bring us back to our roots. When this property turned up we couldn't pass it by. The initial hook was the view of the river from the house. In the 7.5 years we've owned the cabin, our family, friends and neighbors have put in countless hours remodeling the home 'from stem to stern', making for a beautiful, cozy, functional year-round vacation home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Year-round outdoor sports and recreation. Terrific views of wildlife and nature. Quiet, calm, peaceful. True natural beauty that is captivating in it's slow but ever-changing pace.
