Year Purchased: 2011
About: Birch Cabin was purchased in January, 2011 by Jean Warrior and Richard Althouse of Verona, Wisconsin. Jean grew up vacationing in lake cabins near Nisswa, Minnesota in the 1960’s. Dick and Jean spent many summer vacations in the Boulder Junction area with their three sons, always seeking but never quite finding, the “perfect cabin.” Although the boys are now grown with families of their own, when they saw Birch Cabin, Jean and Dick knew they had finally found their dream lake property.
As clinical psychologists, Jean and Dick know the value of taking a break from daily stresses to unplug, unwind, and re-connect with nature and each other. We have an assortment of games and puzzles to keep you busy inside, and have nature guides, bike trail maps, paddling route maps, and information on hikes, scenic destinations, and nature education opportunities near Boulder Junction. We invite our guests to explore the undeveloped shoreline of our own lakes up close in canoes or kayaks, and to enjoy evenings gazing at the stars, roasting marshmallows over a campfire, listening for the haunting cry of the loons or tracking down the famous white deer of Boulder Junction.
Why Boulder Junction: We love the peace and natural beauty of our 3-lake chain. The islands in Wildcat lake are great to paddle around, and we often see bald eagles, otters, or herons. The views are gorgeous, and the quiet is amazing. Yet, we can get on a new bike trail just a mile down the road and peddle to Boulder Junction.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: After staying in many small towns 'up north' we kept coming back to Boulder Junction. We love having such a great assortment of shops, restaurants, and galleries just a few miles from the cabin.
