About the Property
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)
UPGRADE HIGHLIGHTS: Our kitchen has been completely renovated to include new stove, dishwasher, more counter space and breakfast nook. We have also added a washer/dryer and remodeled the bathroom. For the outside, a new privacy fence, landscaping and a new staircase to the dock (with lighting). For those with electronic devices, we upgraded all the electricity to accommodate more outlets in convenient locations.
Take a step back in time at this authentic log cabin built in the early 1900's. Stone fireplace, original wood floors, tastefully decorated with interesting antique furniture and accessories that remind you of fishing in the North woods. The cabin sits only 30 feet from the shores of 1536 acre Prairie Lake, one of a chain of 3800 acre Chetek chain of lakes. Beautiful lot with towering pines and spacious yard. 150 ft of private level frontage, with two private docks and sandy bottom great for swimming.
Watch the wildlife, fishermen, and skiers, from the large enclosed front porch 30 ft from water’s edge. Unique location on the lake allows you to view both sunrise and gorgeous sunsets. Gaze at the moon and stars reflecting off the water as you relax by the evening campfire. Across the lake lies "Horseshoe Cove", public land with beautiful trees, no houses and great fishing.
Recently renovated kitchen and bath gives you modern conveniences. One car garage plumbed with hot and cold water, for fish cleaning. Public boat landing located right next door for easy entry into the chain. Recently added flagstone patio with fire pit, picnic table and chairs makes for fantastic, relaxing, evenings by the camp fire.
WIFI is included, Firewood is included, a vintage row boat is yours to use. We have configured this cabin, and everything around and in it, to transport you into instant vacation mode.
When you arrive, don't unpack...walk to the lake and take a deep breath and smell the fresh pine, feel the breeze off the lake and get ready to relax. You will not be disappointed!

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Our family has been vacationing at the Chetek chain of lakes for 5 generations and have such great memories of the place and the people. We love to boat, fish and entertain our friends and family, the chain is the perfect place for that!
Why the Owner Chose Chetek, WI, USA:
We have been looking for vacation home for years and even bought some land at one time with the intention to build our perfect getaway. Although Chetek is 5 hours from home, we kept thinking why would we vacation someplace else? When we came across this log cabin we instantly feel in love with it. Our plan was to build a log cabin but why do that, this cabin was perfect, well-built, right on the water with a great history.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we saw large farmhouse table on the porch/dining area we knew this was our place. We pictured our boys, friends and family playing games on this table while we sat nearby enjoying the view of the water. The log construction was original, quality and aged and had that smell that only a log cabin can have. It reminded us of our childhood when we visited Chetek or spent time in our parents lake home. We wanted our children to have that same experience and a place they could build memories to keep them coming back to Chetek for years to come. The large, level lot, beautiful pine trees with at awesome pine smell made it easy to see us enjoying the day here. We also wanted a place with easy access to the lake, and dock, so older members of our family could easily get to the boat for a ride. We added the large flagstone patio so we could setup chairs and build fires without the fear of catching anything on fire. It also helps keep the dirt in the house down to a minimum. Lastly, we loved the location on Prairie Lake, farther up to avoid too much boat traffic and ample places for fishing and boating. The narrow lake area to the South is great for water skiing as the water tends to be smoother.
