About the Property
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Meanwhile, you will enter the living space to find a real Northwoods retreat. The kitchen is equipped with every modern appliance, including the sub zero fridge, and the cabinets reveal every cooking and baking spice you may wish for during your stay. 2 wood burning fireplaces and a large screened in porch will begin to paint the picture of your time to come. Games for all ages are available and the martini glasses stand proud in the cabinet.
Serenity surrounds you as you listen to the haunting cry of the resident pair of loons, zealously protecting a chick or two in the spring or early summer. The eagles will be circling, also looking for the newborn loon chicks. Check out the multiplicity of wildlife, including birds, squirrels of many colors, otters, and the ever present deer. Fill up the bird feeder and watch from the kitchen window, as the deer come through in a parade at night.
Grab a sundowner in the gazebo, and listen to the happy screams of your children playing in the lake. Muskellunge await the clever fisher people, whilst the little fisher people will find the little fishes all day long off the end of the dock.
The fire pit by the lake has hosted countless schmoors parties, and awaits you. Remain quietly after the kids are gone, and you may well be visited by the hoot of the owl.
The forest and trails that surround LaBri make for endless hiking and biking in the summer, and snowshoeing, and cross country skiing in the winter. The slopes of Indianhead and Powderhorn mountains lie just 45 minutes to the north in the UP of Michigan.
Summer or winter LaBri will massage your soul. Come stay with us. It is very likely you will return.

About the owner: Rick, Helen, Christopher, Taylor and Anna Sweitzer are the proud owners of LaBri. Rick owns and runs an adventure travel company, The Northwest Passage, and Helen is an artist, who runs the Women's program for a large refugee resettlement agency in Chicago. We all love the outdoors, with an emphasis on quiet sports. Skiing, hiking, biking, and paddling are high on our list of loves.
Why the Owner Chose Boulder Junction, WI, USA:
We chose this place because of its evident and very good Karma. Located a very easy and drivable distance from Chicago, and smack dab in the midst of the boreal forest, it offers us the instant peacefulness required.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will enjoy the fact that LaBri is not a 'rental' unit. It is our second home, replete with books, artwork, nice furnishings, and tastefully 'knickknacked'. Old skis and snowshoes adorn the walls and the quiet will force you into calm.
