Amherst cabin description

This secluded retreat is located on 40 acres between Amherst and Waupaca WI. Private and on the water it is sure to help you build special memories. The home is log constructed with covered porches, open concept floor plan and loft. Located just a feet from the Tomorrow River, a premier trout stream, its quiet location set back from one of Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads will make you feel like you are million miles away from the hustle bustle of the world.

With 2 comfortable bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, loft with a full and twin sized bed and a full-sized hide-a-bed it can easily sleep 6 guests. The kitchen is equipped for full meals and more. Amenities include coffee maker, microwave, full-sized fridge and toaster. A full sized dining table can seat everyone. There is a sitting area just off the dining room for reading and visiting with family and friends. The living room is adjacent with seating for 6. Off the living room enjoy a beautiful covered deck overlooking the river. This cozy one-bath home has a first floor shower/bath combo and a nearby full laundry. Linens and towels are provided for our guests.

Enjoy hiking, swimming, nature walks, rafting, kayaking, and fishing on this spacious property. The stretch of river just behind the cabin has a nice ambling way about it, making it great for young children and relaxing in the cool spring-fed waters. The large front and back yards make the property perfect for outside games and activities. In the evening enjoy a private bonfire at the fire-pit which overlooks the river . A game closet, Wi-fi, and full-sized TV with basic cable are also provided.

Outside you will find a picnic table, lawn chairs (6), grill and fire pit (wood provided, please do not bring your own due to Emerald Ash Bore concerns).

River Ridge Cabin is located less than five miles outside the Village of Amherst and 8 miles from Lake Emily Park. Lake Emily Park offers a boat launch (fishing and water sports), hiking trails, beach, and picnic areas. It is 10 miles away from Standing Rocks Park, also great for hiking, cross country & downhill skiing depending on the season. It is 45 minutes from the Fox River Mall in Appleton, WI and 20 minutes from UW-Stevens Point.

Nearby attractions include several micro-breweries (Central Waters, Oso's, Yak and Point Brewery), the Waupaca Chain o’ Lakes, the Iola Old Car Show, Experimental Air Craft Association Fly-in, Midwest Renewable Energy Fair, UW –Stevens Point, Iola Winter Carnival, The World’s Largest Trivia Contest and the Waupaca Art Festival. There are miles of near-by trails with the Tomorrow River Trail, Green Circle Trail and marked snow-mobile trails in winter.

For an additional fee, an RV or camper can also be accommodated on the property.

Pets are accepted for an additional $25/pet.
