Love this place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cabin two years in a row and expect to back in the future. We love the Waupaca area and this cabin is the right combination of getting away from it all and being comfortable and connected.

The cabin is on the small, quiet, no-wake Lake Beasley. The lake is clear and great for swimming, kayaking, fishing and canoeing. It was great that two kayak's and two canoes were provided. The only negative to the property is that the shoreline is mucky. If you had small children that wanted to walk right in to the lake from the shore this place would not work. However, it does have a long pier with an attached floating raft that goes far enough into the lake that you can jump and swim right off the end and be in good water for swimming.

There is a large area shown in the picture with a fire pit. We used it most nights.

The cabin itself is certainly not luxurious, but has everything you really need. Including a tv with cable and internet access. Beds are comfy and each bedroom has a air conditioner/heater that when on can really heat/cool the entire cabin. We had to use the heater one night that got pretty chilly!

We also love the Waupaca area. We have a favorite restaurant (The Wheelhouse), ice cream place (Scoopers) and we love to hike and bike in Hartman State Park which is basically across the road.

The owners of this cabin also will consider pets, which is great. I think our dog had as much fun on vacation as we did.

We just love sitting on the pier and drinking coffee in the morning and looking out over the lake. That is truly paradise to us.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this wonderful cabin! The chain o lakes area is a great place to spend a week with the family, and this cabin is our family's new favorite in the area! It is on a quiet lake that's great for swimming without the noise and waves of power boats. The cabin itself is set further apart from its neighbors than other places we've stayed, and we enjoyed having more space for the kids to run around and play games where we could see them. It is rustic, so we really felt like we were getting away, but it has everything you need to be comfortable. Over our week we cooked many great meals in the kitchen! The kids loved the sleeping porch, even on nights when it was raining. Just two doors down is a fun mini golf course, and we took the car into town a few times to check out the cute shops in town and of course to buy some of that famous cheese curd! The cabin's fire pit was a lot of fun at night. This is a great spot to kick back and relax for a week -- we will definitely be back!

Our Favorite Week of the Summer

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at Castle Point since the summer of 2006 and we love this cottage! As the pictures show, you can't ask for more secluded setting in an area where some cottages seem to be built on top of each other. Both the upper cottage yard and the lower beachside cove offer a special, private outdoor feel. Being on Beasley Lake is another hugh plus for this spot. It's a smaller, "no-wake" lake so while boats do come through, they quietly putter past. But, you still have access to the bigger lakes through a connecting channel: great for your kayak or canoe! Also, Beasley Lake is a great swimming spot. The cottage has a nice rustic feel. It's not someone's second home being rented out, but rather a "real up-North Wisconsin" cottage like you went to as a kid. The big screened in porch looks out over the lake. There are cots on one section of the porch or two bedrooms to choose from. The living room is very comfortable and has a gas fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped for your culinary needs. Lastly, there is a firepit in the side yard where you can wrap up your day watching the embers glow.
