About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our solar powered log cabin is located on 90 acre Lehto Lake. We own 120 wooded acres surrounded by another 700 acres of state land. Most of Lehto Lake's shoreline is undeveloped because it is owned by a nature conservancy. There is no public access to the lake and no other properties visible from our cabin. You most likely will not see another person during your stay so you are guaranteed privacy and quiet. This is a place to relax.

We are 45 minutes from the busy tourist attractions of Minocqua, and 1 hr. from the quiet beauty of Lake Superior. You can fish or hunt all day, walk or snowshoe the old logging trails, kayak or canoe around the island and through cattails in the adjoining marsh, pick wild berries, or just sit around the large fire pit and enjoy amazing sunsets. Several other lakes and the Flambeau Flowage are nearby, providing excellent additional fishing opportunities. Bike, ATV and snowmobile trails are accessible from our property. Two kayaks, a canoe, and a 14 ft. aluminum boat with a trolling motor are available for your use. We are also near some of the best cross country and downhill skiing in the midwest!

Our cabin is built from hand-scribed logs taken from our property (not an imitation log kit!) As a custom cabinet maker, I have put fine details in the cabin - granite and Corian countertops, hardwood floors, ceramic tile floors and shower, etc. The 'master bedroom' is located in the loft which contains a double bed, recliner sofa, love seat, and TV. A bedroom in the lower level has 2 twin beds. A sleeper sofa on the main level provides additional sleeping. Because we love to cook the kitchen is extremely functional and fully stocked, but our favorite place to cook is outside over an open fire. The lower level rec room contains a ping pong table for evening or rainy day fun.

In addition to solar power we have a back-up generator which automatically turns on and off if additional power is needed. The main source of heat is a wood stove for which we provide plenty of split wood and kindling inside the cabin. There is also a furnace in the lower level which supplements the wood stove. You will never run out of electricity of be cold.

If you check out the Google Map it will show the cabin location further from the lake than it is. Google does not recognize our address so it places the cabin too far north on Randall Lake Rd. Also, the driveway is 1 mile long so even at the proper location it looks like the cabin is not near the lake, but it definitely is. I've located the cabin with a point of interest.

In case you have small children, the railings in the loft and on the staircases now have spindles (some of the pictures were taken before they were installed) so you don't have to worry about safety.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Our family lives in Lac du Flambeau, WI (40 minutes from the rental cabin) where I am self-employed as a custom cabinet maker.

Why the Owner Chose Park Falls, WI, USA:
We didn't build this as a rental property, but as a second home. Because our business is located at our home, we need a place to get away from work. This property is the perfect location - quiet and relaxing. When our daughter was in college we began renting it out and it allowed her to graduate debt free. Because of the large clientele we built up who wanted to return we have continued to share our quiet get-away with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The peacefulness! On most of our visits we never hear another human, just the wildlife.
