Open year-round! Nestled between the small riverside towns of Alma and Nelson, Wisconsin, the Caye Dreams cabin sits on the backwaters of the Mississippi. What once was a day cabin with no running water or electricity to speak of, was completely remodeled in 2013. Every detail was considered, from the hand-scraped wood floors, the Amish rough sawn pine ceiling, the natural stone marble counter tops, the real stone slate surrounding the free-standing wood stove (there to keep you cozy on a cool night), to the screened-in deck with stunning views of the calm Mississippi backwaters and the trains passing by. You’ll feel like you just escaped into paradise.
The cabin sleeps six people comfortably in it’s one bedroom and large loft area. Enjoy incredible views as the sun rises and sets, and watch as the fisherman and water skiers go back and forth during the day. You’ll also have access to the water and use of our dock so that you can fish, swim, or just relax. Experience what it’s like to stay at a truly unique place.

About the owner: Joe grew up in Mondovi, WI as one of 8 on a family farm. For 22 years he co-owned a home improvement company. He was an active member of the local Chamber of Commerce as well as on the committee for the Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley. Joe was also an active member of the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association and served a term as chairman of the Home and Garden Show. Joe has always been an entrepreneur and owns several student rentals in Eau Claire, WI. Currently he is promoting a 90-day health challenge helping people lose weight and get fit. Libby grew up in the small town of Washburn, WI. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire with a marketing degree. She was a member of the Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley. She currently works for a non-profit organization. Joe and Libby met 4 years ago and were married this past December on a small island in Belize. Both love to travel and this shared passion has taken them on many adventures. Their dream is to one day live part of the year in Alma, and part of the year in Belize.
Why the Owner Chose Alma: This cabin sat only feet from our own cabin property line and Joe always had a vision for what it could be. When the neighbor was ready to sell there was no question that we would buy. Joe took his love for home improvement and his attention to detail and design and made this cabin truly unique and upscale. Libby added her own personal touches here and there and was given full reign of making sure the kitchen was completely stocked with the proper utensils (and coffee and creamer of course!).
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Joe & Libby found the views of the water and calming effects of the trains passing (don't worry they don't blow their horns where we are, and you can hardly hear them once inside) by so stunning that they wanted to share this experience with as many other people as possible, and thus Caye Dreams Riverside Hideaway was born. The meaning behind the name is a topic left for discussion sitting around a campfire with us enjoying one of your favorite cocktails or some of our homemade wine.
