Secluded Lakefront Cabin in Lakewood, Wisconsin

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

You will absolutely love staying here! No matter what time of the year, this 1000 sq ft secluded cabin is perfect!

Completely remodeled in 2008, both the inside and out are new and updated. The huge master bedroom(21x11) has a king size select comfort adjustable bed. The 2nd large bedroom has both a queen bed and a bunkbed set up. The kitchen has all brand new appliances and is connected to the great room and dining area with very high vaulted ceilings.

Through the sliding doors,there is a large deck attached overlooking the lake with a gorgeous view of the island straight out. The 1 acre property has 286 feet of lake frontage and is on a dead end street. Privacy is an understatement, yet heading into town takes a minute or two unless you have to pause for deer or other wildlife.

Chain Lake is a perfect 76.3 acre lake with a maximum depth of 42 feet making it ideal for fishing, boating, swimming, and jet-skiing. All ages can catch panfish right off the dock all day if they would like. With all the different species of fish the Northwoods has to offer, Chain Lake allows fishermen to access the calm waters both during the day and afternoon because boating hours end when fishing is just right but there is also a large section of the lake with crystal clear water that remains tranquil all day just for those to fish. The boat landing is just down the road and easy to access.

There are two fire pits and plenty of wood provided. A row boat w/ oars and life jackets. The McCauslin Brook Golf Course is a few minutes away as well.

Available year round this four seasons cabin is also great for winter activities with cross country ski trails and hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails with great stops along the way. Public hunting land throughout the Nicolet National Forest is also very close by.

Linens provided. The cabin will be professionally cleaned after your departure, but please take care of it as you would your own. Responsible tenants only, please!

About The Owner

I love to fish and enjoy all wild life. I manage rental properties and help my family with a couple local sandwich shops. I like to stay in shape and play sports. I am a christian. I love to watch football and am a huge Green Bay Packer fan. I do not rent my cabin out to Vikings fans. Just kidding :) I love people, sports, nature, and God. I guess that just about sums me up.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Lakewood

I grew up vacationing in Lakewood and I loved every second of it. My best friend's parents had a cottage on Wheeler lake in Lakewood, and some of my best memories are there. He now has his own cabin on Wheeler lake. My father and I also headed up to Lakewood when we had the chance and enjoyed all it has to offer. I bought my cabin on Chain Lake because I love location of the heart shaped lake and the waterfront view. It is so close to town yet it is still so secluded. One of very few. There is so much to do in such a small area. I love it!

What makes this cabin unique

The unique benefits about staying at my cabin would start with the lake. Chain lake is heart shaped, one side is full recreation for boating, jet skiing ect... the other side, which is where my cabin resides, is a no wake zone. It leaves the water crystal clear making it ideal for fishing, canoeing, swimming, and relaxation. The cabin is a few minutes away from town yet its on the end of a secluded dead end road. There will be no one around. With the seclusion comes the wild life. directly behind my cottage, opposite from the water, is where the black bears, deer, and many other animals come down from the hills to get food and water. It's an amazing sight.

Peaceful Refuge

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Lakewood was beautiful. The home is bright, comfortable with knotty pine accents. The rowboat got us out around the little island and connected us to a busier part of the lake. Wished we had a kayak as it was a very quiet lake. The water was clear but there were lots of lily pads. It was too cold for swimming. We had nightly campfires on the shore which was perfect for stargazing. Love the area.

Tidy but dirty

  • 1 of 5

It was a Tidy place, but cleanliness was an issue. We are by no means "clean freaks", but the dishes were dirty, shower was bad enough that my wife had to clean before using, floor and rugs were pretty bad too (white socks turned brown in a hurry). The fridge and freezer smelled like fish.

TV screen not in the best shape- brown streaks across picture.

No dressers! We felt like we never really unpacked or settled in.

We had to mess with the sleep number bed for two nights before it would inflate properly

Two kayaks were advertised but not there- would have brought my own had we known

The local black bear had us on edge, spooked our dog.

Several emails to the owner went unanswered

Owner's Response: I really don't think a 1 star review is fair..... Several of the statements made are untrue. All the tenants emails were responded to as far as I can tell.( I went back and checked) If there was an issue with cleanliness, I would have been happy to send my cleaning team right back in to address anything they may have missed but I was not contacted. Kayaks are not advertised so I'm not sure what that was about.(I do not own a kayak). No one has ever complained about not having a dresser in the past.(You can see there are no dressers in the pictures) I do understand the concern though and will be providing one in the future. The TV in the living room is getting replaced. Although still watchable, it must be damaged. A couple weeks ago I think a different tenant damaged it. I'm sorry there was a bear in the area, but I cannot control the wildlife. I have never seen one there in over 20 years.

Secluded (but not desolate), comfy cottage

  • 4 of 5

When we rent a place for vacation, we look for clean, comfy, and convenient as standards for an enjoyable stay. When we travel with our two dogs, we also look for dog-friendly places that don't charge and arm and a leg for two well-behaved, non-destructive pets. The Lakewood cabin was certainly clean, and it included items that we needed for fishing (oars!) that we did not bring with us. It is in a quiet location, surrounded by other vacation homes. The roads around the cottage are great for dog walks, and the location is convenient to the Nicolet National Forest hiking trails. We even discovered a 'Lakewood Auto Tour' book in one of the drawers in the living room. It rained most of our four-day stay, but that didn't matter. We knew there was no cable or internet, and we had rented a similar venue before with great results -- what a fine reason to be able to unwind without being 'connected' to work or ... people. We celebrated our anniversary at nearby Waubee Lodge -- a five-start dining experience that we truly enjoyed. We also found snack, drink, and cook-in meal supplies at the near-by grocery, not more than 1.5 miles down the road on Hwy. 32. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Well maintained, comfy cabin

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained. The owner was pleasant and helpful. The cabin is in a convenient location. July was a great time to visit because the mosquitoes were not bad at all. The down side was that Chain Lake is not for swimming but there are many local swimming spots. Also, the fire pits are really overgrown with grass and too buggy for a comfortable campfire. I thought it was good for the price and really appreciated the friendliness of the owner.
