Wooded Private - True Log Cabin on Pristine Spider Lake

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,075 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps up to 14

This spacious three bedroom log cabin was built using logs from the property. It sits on a wooded private lake-front lot on the beautiful Spider Lake Chain. Enjoy complete privacy at all views and sunsets. Listen to the loons; watch the eagles soar and get a close-up glimpse of deer and other wildlife as our property butts up to the Washburn County Forest offering privacy all around.

The best part about our cabin is the lake! Spider Lake is a chain of 5 deep lakes, totaling roughly 300 acres. The irregular shoreline and many islands, bays and coves make every outing on Spider a wonderful discovery experience. Catch fish from the dock or rent our kayaks for an adventure. Swim the crystal clear waters from the swim raft in our private cove, the pristine waters are heavenly!

The main level features a newly updated fully-equipped kitchen, living room and 2 bedrooms with lake views, and full bath. Ceiling fans in every room. Walk out onto the wrap around upper deck overlooking the lake and Washburn County Forest where there's a gas grill, plenty of furniture to relax on to watch the sunset and large tables to enjoy outdoor meals.

The lower level features a Great Room with windows affording a beautiful view of the lake, two sets of bunk beds, a daybed and pull-out couch. A game room with board games, many puzzles, books, game/puzzle table and Foosball table, also approx. 100 movies for those rainy days. Full bath and utility room with full size washer and dryer are also here. Walk-out to another large deck for an afternoon siesta on the hammocks or sunning on the lounge chairs.

Additionally outdoors is 3 dining tables and chairs, gas bbq grill, fire pit and a canoe, paddle boat, swim raft and floats available for your use. We also have kayaks for rent. ATV - Hiking trails are at the end of our long driveway which leads to the Tuscobia State Trail and the snowmobile trail is accessible from the lake. There is plenty of parking for boat or ATV trailers. No Wifi - we love to unplug. The Town of Birchwood is a 5 min. drive and has a large convenience store with free WiFI, several restaurants, bars and pubs, and a nice small grocery store.

For the ultimate in privacy and northwoods enjoyment this is the perfect family lake cabin getaway!

About Sherrie

This is our family cabin. We've had many great times up here but with our busy schedules we're renting it a few weeks a month.

Sherrie purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Sherrie chose Birchwood

We fell in love with Spider Lake and waited patiently for a place to come up for sale. We had a cabin on Lake Chetac but water was to mucky/green in the summer. With the clean pristine waters of Spider Lake, quiet peacefulness, singing loons, eagles and all around beauty, we love it!

What makes this cabin unique

We love the fact that the logs that make this cabin came from the property it sits on. Crystal clean swimming and in the forest next to us wildlife abounds. Hiking/ATV trails in the summer and snowmobile trails in the winter. Shopping and dining are only a five minute drive. It's private, quiet and peaceful or has plenty of room to be loud and have some fun without bothering anyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were pleased to find that the cabin was roomy and had everything needed for a two week vacation. It was s0 relaxing! We enjoyed using the paddle boat and canoe. It was a great vacation spot and we were thankful to find a lake home accommodating two families with dogs.

Such a relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to totally get away from the hassle and hustle of everyday life---and we found it here. A perfectly cozy cabin located in a beautiful secluded spot in the woods on a quiet, serene lake. Everything we hoped for.The cabin itself is terrific. Many places to just sit and read and relax. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are so comfy----I can't remember ever sleeping better. So many DVDs to choose from and games to play if you want. All in all, this place does offer the best of everything. We hated to leave but we'll be back. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the cabin. Plenty to do with canoeing, paddle boat and swimming. Very private and could hear the loons every day. Great fire pit for a bonfire. Plenty of seating inside and out. Cabin had plenty of space and the kitchen was well stocked. So glad we could bring out Golden Retriever too. Highly recommend!

Beautiful and tranquil setting on gorgeous lake chain

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cabin with great access to beautiful water. Great swimming, fishing and canoeing. Outdoor seating on the cabin decks and fire pit is plentiful, comfortable, and relaxing. The mosquitoes are pesky, but can be dissuaded. The cabin is well stocked with everything a large family would need for food prep and there are tons of rainy day activities- movies, games, foosball, and darts. The cabin is neat and tidy. We brought box fans to help keep the air flowing at night and were very comfortable without air conditioning on hot sunny days. Our big family with children aging 2-13 had a fantastic time and have hopes of making it a return vacation.

We had a wonderful week at the lovely Spider Lake Log home. It is in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Many wonderful memories were made at this beautiful lake home. It is very spacious and much attention has been given to detail to insure that the guests have what they might need during their stay. The fishing was great and the water was warm for swimming. We enjoyed the paddle boat and canoe. We highly recommend this vacation place.

Perfect! Clean, super comfortable, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

After 30 years of hit and miss lake cabin experiences - this one was finally JUST PERFECT! The well appointed, wonderfully private, and nicely updated log home includes it's own sweet little inlet and a great little beach for embarking in kayaks to explore a secluded and quiet chain of deep, small lakes. Very comfortable and clean beds and furniture, plenty of table lamps for the readers in the bunch. Well stocked kitchen - not one unpleasant surprise. Not ONE! We'll be back! ...P.S. Only 10 minutes from Birchwood - highly recommend the Paul's Pizza Den there - the smoked baby back ribs are amazing, and the Bear Bait dessert is scrumptious!

Spider Lake is a private lake with not many homes located on it, so you will enjoy open water and a quiet setting. It is a full recreational lake but does not typically have jet skis on it.

At the lake we have a canoe, swim raft, paddle boat to use and kayaks for rent. ATV trails are just at the end of our long driveway and can take you around the lake or into town.
