Very Private Winter and Summer Log Cabin Retreat

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Built as a winter and summer escape for a couple or small family, this beautiful four season log cottage is one of a kind. The site is extremely private in a very wild and scenic setting on the famous Chippewa Flowage...only 17 miles from Hayward. The 'Flowage is a 17,000 acre lake with hundreds of islands and 200 miles of 95% undeveloped lakeshore. It is one of the more famous wilderness lakes in Northern Wisconsin and the Hayward Lakes Region. The home makes a wonderful four season retreat...very private...with spectacular and private water views!!

The Adirondack style log cottage sits on a large 60 acre parcel with an abundance of lake frontage in a very private wooded setting. The views from the home are 100% natural...nothing but trees and undeveloped shoreline!!! The large screen porch has great views to the lake making evening dinners seem in the outdoors... the lake side fire pit and chairs create a great place for reflection or marsh mallow roasts...the 3/4 mile private wooded trail is lined with huge pines and is perfect for quiet walks... the kitchen-great room is decorated in a classic northwoods decor with many handmade rustic furniture pieces. (The cabin and much of the rustic furniture was built by the owner.) The second floor loft-bedroom has three beds...two doubles and a very spacious and is lined with windows creating beautiful views to the lake. Wood floors, rustic furniture and an abundance of windows add to the Northwoods feel of this unique property.

The home is located on the North East corner of the very famous and wild Chippewa Flowage. Paddling or boating adventures up the river are close and easy and a paddle boat ride around the bay is even easier. This section of the lake is truely a wilderness area...make a left off the dock and it is miles to the next home. All 17,000 acres of the Chippewa Flowage can be your boating playground!!

With the famous resort town of Hayward just 17 miles away you can choose from a variety of world class attractions, restaurants and shops. If you are looking to relax in private with your loved ones this is a place that exudes family time. Whether it is canoeing up the nearby river, boating out the lake to the ice cream shop, a boat ride to one of 10 lake resorts for a cheese burger, catching some fresh fish for dinner, walking on the private woods trail, biking on the forest roads or reading on the screen porch, you will be able to relax undisturbed in this unique northwoods retreat.

Winter is a very special time here...a true winter wonderland. The snow is a pristine white...the solitude at a level that forces you to unwind. Whether it is a snow shoe down the shore of the lake to the river...a slow cross country tour down the private woods trail or a candle lit dinner in front of the fire...winter is a great get away time. Try the will be glad you did!!!

Cozy, tranquil, winter wilderness

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in this warm, comfortable cabin situated perfectly on the lake with its own private trails. So tranquil, with the sounds of ice cracking on the lake, spotting the occasional bald eagle and just enjoying a good book next to the fire stove in such a beautiful environment. Hospitality was wonderful, and well cared for cabin. Must visit in the summer!

Excellent Accommodation and Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

The property owner, Fred, receives a 5 out 5 for his excellent service! He was quick to reply to our initial booking request, and was very accommodating when I accidentally booked the wrong weekend online. Turns out that he has a few other beautiful cabins in the area and we were able to switch our reservation for a vacant cabin on the right weekend. The cabin was very clean and private - exactly what we were looking for in a weekend escape. WILL DEFINITELY BOOK WITH FRED AGAIN!
