Mellen cabin description

Our clean and comfortable lake cabin is located on 111 acre, spring fed, Long Lake, where the fishing is great and the sunsets are breathtaking. Swim, fish, or just relax and take in some sun on our beach. Rest and relaxation is the order of the day at Long Lake.

We are located just minutes from the Chequamegon National Forest, which offers hiking, biking, ATV, and snowmobile trails to explore. Exceptional downhill and cross-country skiing is a short drive away. Ice fish and skate right out your door. Our cabin is winterized and open year round.

Our clean, cozy, 2 bedroom cabin is completely furnished with everything you will need, including bed linens. Our fully equipped kitchen has stove, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Hide-a-bed provided in the living area for extra sleeping. TV w/SATand free WIFI are also provided. There is a screen porch to enjoy the serenity of the Northwoods, a charcoal grill and a firepit. A rowboat is available for your use with a weekly rental.

Fishing & Recreation Opportunities on Long Lake: Long Lake is a beautiful sandy bottom, spring fed lake. It is well known for its large Crappie, Northern, Large Mouth Bass, and assortment of panfish. A row boat is available for use-free of charge with a weekly rental. We also offer boat rentals for your convenience. We rent tandem kayaks, canoe, row boats w/ or w/out motors, and a pontoon boat. If you wish, you may bring your own boat. We have docks available for swimming, fishing and docking your boat. Our beach is enjoyable for lounging about, reading a good book, or enjoying a refreshing swim!! You will enjoy the view as you sit around your campfire!! Wildlife viewing opportunities abound. The loons can often be heard serenading, and you may be gifted to see any number of visiting wildlife-depending on the season! Our personal favorite is when the trumpeter swans and eagles visit!!

Local Attractions Nearby: Our lake cabin is ideally located to explore the beautiful Northwoods! Long Lake is located right out your door, and Ashland County Forest is a short walk away. Hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, ATV, and snowmobile trails are accessed right out the driveway. Copper Falls State Park is located only eight miles away and is open year round for exploration-they even have great cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails!! St. Peter's Dome and Morgan Falls is a short distance away and provides breath-taking and inspiring views of the entire Penokee Mountain Range. There are several waterfalls and excellent hiking destinations in the area. Ashland and Lake Superior are only 30 miles away, and the Apostle Island National Lakeshore and Bayfield are popular day trip destinations; as is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!!

Year-round Enjoyment: No matter what the season, there is plenty to do at our Northwoods Lake Retreat! Spring welcomes birds and wildlife watching galore! It is a great time for Spring fishing or exploring the raging waterfalls. Summers are perfect for boating, swimming, fishing or hitting one of the local trails. The Autumn colors are gorgeous here in the Penokee Mountain Range and an ideal location for a hunting base camp. Winters bring lots of great snow for snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow-shoeing, ice skating, and cross-country skiing. Downhill skiing is located a short distance away!
