The Cabin Property: The atmosphere is casual, fishing for Sunnies, Crapies, Northern and Bass.. Swimming is best in late June through mid August, unless you don't mind cool water.
Gatherings around the campfire in the evenings is a must. We provide the wood. (No wood from out of the area, please, to protect the forest from infections and pests causing infestations. (It's the law).
Sunsets are beautiful, stars are brilliant and the rays of the moon falling across the water is peaceful and serene. Fall to sleep with the call of the loons.
Get away from it all or take a short jaunt to town to mix it up with the locals and other area visitors. Lively entertainment available most weekends. It's YOUR CHOICE.

About Ruth or Fred Strohmeier
Fred's Grandfather purchased the property in 1935. Grandpa, Dad and 2 Uncles built the cabin in 1955-56 by hand with trees off the property. They cut, pealed and bleached the logs devoting many hours when not working their regular jobs so that we could enjoy the outdoors with shelter to return to in inclement weather. We enjoy observing and interacting with nature. It is our place to get away-from-it all, not worry about getting all prim and proper unless we want to. Of course, we can get creative and find many things to do outdoors and attending local activities available in the communities around us too. Our Grandchildren love coming to the cabin, exploring the woods, swimming, boating, fishing, wild berry picking in season, eating well, making up games, running around, building camp fires, making smores and listening to stories; some real some made up (if you can imagine that).

Had another great visit. The water was so clear we saw Dozens of fish in a line parallel to the shore, just beyond the dock! The loon call always makes us feel welcomed back to Kego. We look forward to our upcoming two weeks to enjoy the cabin, the lake and visit with Ruth and Fred.
Spring 2018 Visit
Another GREAT visit. Cabin & grounds are always in perfect condition. Weather was very nice & fishing good. Thanks to Ruth & Fred for providing such a nice place to relax & enjoy the environment.
Kego Lake - Our favorite vacation spot!
This was the six year that my family has visited Kego Lake. Ruth & Fred are wonderful hosts and provide a fully furnished home-away-from-home! They've thought of all the little things you might need for a week's stay. We went a week later than we have in years past and it was a little bit colder, but the fishing was amazing and the change in the fall colors from one weekend to the next was awesome. We didn't even take the pontoon out as we had so much success fishing from the dock! We've already made our reservations for next year!
Even with cooler weather there are lots of things to do. We're always glad to have our guests returning.
We also like to see new guests.
Another great year ends. There is next year to look forward to.

We have never stayed at this cabin in the fall but it was even more charming than we could have thought. Fishing was better, and the campfires were even more enjoyable. The cabin has a wonderful heating/cooling system for those chilly mornings or hot afternoons, but having the windows open is the best! As always Fred and Ruth are the perfect hosts as Sky and Jaques are great fun for our four-legged companion, Murphy.
I hate to say too many good things for fear of having too much competition for fall rentals, but in all fairness, this cabin meets all our needs and more.
Fall is the perfect time for the fall color of leaves. It can be cool or warm, it can be wet or dry. Fishing usually picks up as the lake cools off in the cooler nights. Any time you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life is a treat. We enjoy our guests.
Ruth and Fred
We had a wonderful stay. The cabin is very private, you only see other cabins when on the dock. The cabin was very clean and comfortable! Ruth and Fred do a wonderful job to make you feel welcome!
Wishing you a most memorable anniversary..Glad to know storms and strong winds don't break you. Others around us didn't fair as well. There were lots of trees down, holes in roofs, pontoon boats upside down in the lake and docks broken. It was a bad early morning, for sure. We're glad everything else went smoothly.
Ruth and Fred
Just fantastic! we could easily retire here and never look back!
The cabin was so spacious, the beds very comfortable and with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom no hotel I have ever stayed at was ever like this. Our dogs loved the pontoon ride as did we. was a bit chilly the first night but after that there are no complaints what so ever. Thank you Fred and Ruth we will be sure to return, and I already see that you all are booked up through august of 2018, we need to start saving now because it's very much worth it.
Ray and Diane Heaton
This cabin and area is a unique experience. We have board games, puzzles and a few books or there are many unique shops and restaurants when the weather is not to your liking. We are nearby if you need something or just want to chat but we also respect your privacy. We are always glad when our guests enjoy their stay.
