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!!!

Great getaway! Very private with amazing views of lake and woods. Highly recommended. Very cozy.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin exceeded all our expectations. It was very private and the views of the frozen lake were amazing. Great views of the sunset. The wood fireplace was perfect. We enjoyed our time spent down by the lake, relaxing by the fire and even attempted a puzzle. Hayward is close by and offers food, shopping and a nice historic downtown for those interested. We brought our own food and cooked in the kitchen. Everything we needed was there. The cabin was beautifully built and spending our time there was a perfect way to spend our Christmas holiday. We only wished we had more time. We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to come back someday. Fred was very helpful and responded to any questions we had.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This cabin offered us everything we needed to have the quiet, relaxing weekend retreat we so desperately craved. The cabin was cozy, the scenery was stunning, and our dogs loved "cabin dog" life for a few (too short) days. We were even able to enjoy the screened in porch and canoe in November - thanks to some unseasonably warm weather. Without a doubt, we will be back if we ever need another northwoods getaway.

We loved staying on the Chip. What a wonderful place where you can leave the rest of the world behind!

You can choose to fish or just read a book and enjoy the breathtaking view.

We will return!

Amazing, private, relaxing rustic cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a fantastic getaway! Everything was exactly as described and the love/creativity the owner put into the cabin and furnishings (!) is obvious everywhere you look. Fred's skills are beyond description and we felt fortunate he chooses to share this very special place with others. Relaxation is immediate upon arrival and we loved our 9 days here. The autumn colors were so beautiful and the weather was still warm enough to enjoy the kayak with the water all to ourselves. It felt like we were the only people for miles around. Saw a huge elk and his harem on one of the trails! Extremely clean and well-maintained with everything we could need provided - even plenty of fire wood for the stove even though there is central heat. We would have loved a tub (or even a hot tub) but knew ahead of time there was only a shower. Would suggest calling ahead if you plan to visit any local resort for dinner due to possible closures. Would also recommend a sign of some sort at the turn off and at the entry to the property just to make it a bit easier to find - we weren't sure we were in the right place until we saw Fred's name in the messages left by other guests. At first we were a bit uncertain when told in our directions the cabin isn't usually locked but after a couple of days, we totally understood! We would absolutely recommend this property without reservation to anyone looking to relax and enjoy complete solitude -- you won't be disappointed! After a couple of trips for supplies to Hayward, we didn't leave the cabin except to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings - the best sleep we've had on vacation ever, thank you Fred!

PS: My favorite piece of your handiwork was the telephone table -- it's absolutely beautiful in design and detail -- great work!
