Lakeside cabin with great views & easy access to the Sylvania Wildernes

Experience the scenic beauty, wildlife and serenity of a still wild Northwoods.

Our cabin is located on Crooked Lake - a beautiful, wild, 556-acre lake surrounded almost entirely by the Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area. This 18,000-acre park is famous for its pristine lakes and old-growth forest. As a federally designated wilderness, most of the park is restricted to non-motorized recreation.

Options for paddling and fishing are many. Crooked Lake has 30 miles of shoreline to paddle along. If you wish to venture further; High Lake, Mountain Lake and Clark Lake can each be accessed from Crooked Lake by a short portage. Additional paddling and portages will take you to the rest of Sylvania's sparkling lakes. The lakes of Sylvania are known for their great bass fishing. Guests are often amazed by the large panfish they catch on Crooked Lake.

Roughly 25 miles of hiking and portages trails can be found in the Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area giving you great places to roam. Nearby is the Wilderness Lakes bike trail.

The cabin is located 50' from the water’s edge with great views of Crooked Lake and the Sylvania Wilderness. A large deck and screen porch overlook the lake.

Wildside is one of seven rental cabins that make up a quiet resort. A portion of the lower level of Wildside (laundry room, family room & utility room) is used by management and is not part of the rental. The lower level screen porch, dock, fire pit and fish house is open for use by all guests. This is a quiet resort. There are no TV's or air conditioners. There are no dusk to dawn lights so our grounds get dark at night and guest can view the starry sky. A flashlight is recommended.

No smoking is allowed in any of our buildings.

Sorry, pets are not allowed.

Gas motors are not allowed.

Canoe and kayak rental is available nearby at Sylvania Outfitters.
