Property description

Our 'Cabin on Lipsie' is a one-of-a-kind vacation retreat where life-long memories of the Northwoods are magically created year round.

Designed by noted Minneapolis architects TEA2, this modern cabin built in 2004 is breezily set on two and a half acres of mature forest from a 1930's resort, and looks over the shorefront of beautiful Lake Lipsett, a Class One lake with a reputation as one of the best 'all-around' lakes in the area for it's fishing, boating and swimming, and located just 11 miles Northwest of Spooner, Wisconsin.

This year-round, single-level cabin sleeps 8 in beds and up to 10 people when the sleeping area is expanded to the gorgeous sun room porch that doubles as a 4th bedroom.

Our cabin experience begins with a great room that greets visitors with sweeping lake views and serves as a perfect gathering point for family, friends and guests. Flanked by a natural stone fireplace, three walls of windows and bench seating, an oversized rustic dining table, and open to a modern kitchen with granite island and bar stools, you'll have little reason to leave this fantastic space.

Taking in the full glory of the Northwoods is as simple as stepping outside onto our flagstone patio, perched in just the right spot to take in gentle breezes and enjoy spectacular sunsets across Lipsie lake.

A stroll up the hallway from the kitchen immediately leads to a full bathroom and two sleeping bedrooms, one with 4 extra-long twin beds and the other with 2 standard twin beds where your children or adult guests can escape the business of the day and enjoy a comfortable cabin slumber at night.

The second full bathroom is located at the end of the hallway and can be shared to the house, or closed for privacy to the master bedroom suite.

The master bedroom is more secluded from the busy parts of the cabin, and takes in beautiful lake views on one side, and cabin window breezes on the other. Depending on your mood, you can sleep with windows open and enjoy the lake sounds and scents.

The hallway also leads to a storage basement where larger lake toys and our full-size washer and dryer can be found.

Back towards the kitchen and great room, the cabin opens to a fantastic year-round sun room porch where the first coffee of the morning can be enjoyed, a late-night movie can be watched, or extra guests can sleep on a fold-down futon couch.

Outdoors you'll find a fireplace on our patio and gradual steps out to a great dock just feet from the cabin. Shallow, sandy water greets those who want to swim or wade and you can walk for quite a ways on our sandbar.

Two kayaks and a rowboat are included for use, and ample space exists to dock a boat if you have your own or chose to rent one from the Main Store in Webb Lake.

In the evenings you'll enjoy grilling out on the patio, cooking smores on the outdoor fireplace, telling stories and visiting with friends until the loons lull you to sleep.

This is cabin R&R at its finest. Fishing, sailing, boating, swimming, hiking, stargazing, relaxing, and getting to know our loons and eagles on a first-name basis are just the beginning of the memories you'll create here.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Steve and Kathy built their dream cabin in 2004. Originally from Illinois, Steve grew up vacationing on 'Lipsie' (as it is called by the locals) every August. Many of his best childhood memories include summer days spent fishing, swimming, boating, and searching for the illusive 'Sasquatch' in the woods. Stargazing with the reward of hot cocoa afterward was also a favorite pastime. Since building their retreat, Steve and Kathy have passed the love of 'time at the cabin' on to their four children and numerous family and friends, as well. As you will see when you arrive, there are many special touches sharing family memories.

Why the Owner Chose Spooner:
The Cabin on Lipsie is situated on one of the best spots on one of the best lakes in the area. Lipsie Lake is at once not so big you'll get lost in boat traffic, and not so small that you compromise the pleasures of water sports and recreation. The spot is located on the site of an old resort known as Lipsie Pines Resort built in the 1930's and virtually undisturbed for decades after it closed to vacationers in the 1960's until the property was eventually sold for private lots in 2000. With 2+ acre lots, the modern Lipsie Pines area has beautiful mature trees, classic cabins and homes, eagles nests and trails, and is well off the main highway to worry about road noise. From this central location in the Northwoods, you can easily enjoy day trips to surrounding lakes, rivers, trails, as well as the charming towns of Spooner (11 miles SW), Siren (30 miles West) and Hayward (37 miles NW). For slightly longer day excursions, you can reach Superior/Duluth and the beautiful Apostle Islands in about 80 miles. And of course, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul are just a two-hour drive away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Unique benefits include: * Custom designed cabin highlighted in architectural Cabin Living magazine * Modern amenities in a rustic setting * Knotty pine ceilings and aged Douglas Fir plank hardwood flooring throughout the cabin * Sweeping views and windows bring in light to every room * Full kitchen with breakfast bar for casual dining * Large kitchen dinning table seats up to 10 people and is excellent for card and board games * An expansive flagstone patio opens to the lakeside of the cabin and has an outdoor fireplace for small bonfires * Entertain with a premium sound stereo with iPod and Bluetooth dock, for music throughout the cabin * Enjoy access to lake on kayaks, sunfish and rowboat
