About the Property
Cabin, 4+ Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12+)
DirecTV: a big screen TV & BlueRay player. There is good cell phone coverage, especially for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint (T-Mobile is so-so) but it's remote enough that you don't have to admit it unless you want to. Internet is what you can get on your smart phone or use your phone or tablet as a hotspot. It's worked for me. DirecTV wouldn't install WiFi out there yet. As soon as it's available I will add it.
Facing west across the lake provides the perfect view of the most amazing sunsets. Check us out for SUMMER FUN, FALL COLORS, the BIRKEBINDER, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, or ice fishing.
Relax among the pines in a private family lake cabin in northwest Wisconsin. Hear the loons in the morning and evening. Watch bald eagles soar over the lake. Swim, canoe, or paddle boat in the lake. Ice fish in the winter, fish in the summer. Watch your kids create their own fun in the woods, or play a game as a family. Watch the sun set over the lake in hues you won't see anywhere else. A large screen porch, a lakeside patio, and a fire pit offer plenty of gathering spots for friends and family. Grab your book and claim the hammock for some quiet time. Cozy fireplace indoors for fall and winter stays.
Enjoy the local tourism, a train museum, the fishing capital of the world, the Gandy Dancer snowmobile, bike and ski trail.
Once you turn down the gravel road it's 1/2 mile to the cabin. You'll feel your shoulders relax, your mind clear, and your worries melt.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The lake is about 340 acres. We have a nice dock, and there is a public access on the lake. Lots of people fish on the lake, and they seem to catch mostly pan fish, bass, and a very occasional walleye or muskie. It's no fishing mecca, but it's fun. The beachfront is sand and rock, and quite shallow a fair distance out even beyond the dock. If you have small children it's excellent. Water shoes are a good idea. It's not slimy or mucky, it's a sand bottom but there are rocks and snails that can hurt small feet. It's very swimmable, and it's perfect for floating on the chairs, noodles and other floaties we have. The shoreline itself is grassy and sand/dirt. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: I grew up in Minnesota and remember fondly the weekends 'at the lake' where my grandparents lived. That memory lives on, and I have created a similar experience for my sons - though we only get to the cabin a couple of times a year. I live and work in Virginia (just outside of DC) and we don't get back to the area as much as we'd like. I have family in Minnesota. The cabin is where my extended family gathers and where my friends from the area come to see us during the summer or holidays.
Why the Owner Chose Spooner, WI, USA:
I moved to the DC area in 1992 yet stayed connected to my family in Minnesota. My Mom and I decided to buy a cabin. We searched for a couple of months (me flying back from DC on weekends to look) and almost gave up when we learned about this 4-season cabin on Lipsie Lake. Mom toured the cabin and sent me a video because I couldn't get back to Wisconsin to see it. I decided to buy it from that video - it was exactly what we were looking for!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Peace & quiet, time to read, relax in the hammock, play games with the family, take a walk, canoe on a glassy lake in the early morning, see the sunset across the lake...there are also may local tourism opportunities and festivals to enjoy.
