About the property

2 Bedroom Cabin In Private Wooded Setting - 25 Mins To Wisconsin Dells

Our cabin was completely remodeled in 2009 and is for those who enjoy the natural outdoors and related sports activities. The cabin is purposefully set up to unplug and get away from the hectic modern life. Basic Wi Fi and electronics are provided but it is not our focus. It is a well maintained, air conditioned home near Buckhorn Bridge and beautiful Buckhorn State Park on a very wooded lot that has a large clearing in back to play or relax by the fire. Well behaved dogs welcome. Convenient rural location. 2 bedrooms (1 Queen bed and the other has 2 twin beds). Sunroom has full size futon. Wood burning stove. Basic Wi Fi. Sits back from the road in the center of 1.5 acres.

Kitchen has plenty of room and full sized appliances and is stocked with cooking utensils and many seasonings so guests don't have to pack so heavily. No dishwasher.

Living room with sofa, Sony Bravia 32' LCD TV, DVD/VHS player with two easy chairs, and wood burning stove. Firewood is provided all season. Good selection of movies.

Our sunroom with it's vaulted ceiling has lots of windows to enjoy wooded view, sounds of nature and the evening breezes. Several books, game table with plenty of games to choose from, ceiling fan and radio.

1 bath with shower.

Large private wooded lot with fire pit (firewood provided). Horse shoe pit, grill (propane provided).

Cabin is surrounded by woods and feels secluded but yet it's close enough to run out for things you might have forgotten to bring along and to the popular family friendly Buckhorn Grill and Bar..

Great place to reconnect with your family, friends in a setting that feels like home. Even family pets will feel like they have had a vacation! If you or your family relies heavily on Wi Fi internet and data sharing and movie streaming we are not likely the best fit for your travels.

There are several access points to beautiful Castle Rock Lake, many boat landings and swimming beaches. Local rural convenient store selling many grocery items, serves freshly made pizzas, packages liquor, fishing licenses and gas. Buckhorn Grill and Bar is a casual dining restaurant that has good food and service. Dining is available inside and out with lots of parking, play area and fire pits. They have a wonderful Sunday barbeque.

Our cabin is off of County Rd G near both the Buckhorn State Park and Buckhorn Bridge which is on on Castle Rock Lake. All of this is within a five minute rural drive from the cabin.

Wisconsin Dells and a large shopping outlet are just about 30 minutes south on I-90.

Red Hen Antiques is a very good store north of the cabin on Rt 58 in Necedah and Downtown Baraboo has many antiques and specialty shops.

Looking for a place to unplug and unwind? The UnDells Cabin is just the place and best suited for small families, two couples or groups of 4 wanting to get together.

About Janette Lavender

We currently live 45 minutes west of Chicago and have been visiting the Castle Rock Lake area for about three decades. We continue to boat, fish, swim, hike and kayak near Castle Rock lake regularly.

Janette Lavender purchased this house in 2005

Why Janette Lavender chose Necedah

We fell in love with the area surrounding Castle Rock Lake as campers some 30 years ago and plan to call it home very soon. The area and it's friendly people have drawn us closer over the years and it feels like home to us. Just a weekend at our cabin can make one feel as if they have been away long enough to relax and return to their busy lives refreshed. We thought if we loved the area so much that others would too and so we decided to purchase this cabin. The UnDells Cabin has proven to be very popular with our guests as they reconnect with family and friends. It is a good rural location for those wanting to relax and enjoy nature or even for the more adventurous that want to visit the Wisconsin Dells which is only 30 minutes away. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

Whether it's fishing, birding, boating, hiking, ATV, dining, shopping, golfing, antiquing, horseback riding or taking day trips into the Dells, Baraboo, Necedah Wildlife Refuge or head north to Black River falls to ride the ATV trail, there is so much to do to satisfy different types of interests.

Lovely stay for girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cabin, well stocked, and clean. Would highly recommend, but worth noting that train tracks nearby may trouble light sleepers.

Owner's Response: We’re so happy to hear you had a lovely time and thanks for sharing your experience. Thank you also for your comment. Indeed we do have a train track nearby. Most guests don’t seem to mind the trains and while we get many repeat guests, the light sleeper may want to pack little foam ear plugs just in case! 😉? Have a wonderful summer. We thank you for choosing our cabin and hope you all return for another visit!!

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Place was clean, appliances were all newer and not from the 18th century, place was well air conditioned thankfully because it was hot, and it was extremely spacious! It was easy to get into. WiFi was pretty slow but that was to be expected. When hitting the town, be sure to have a designated driver, Uber will not work out here!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know you had an excellent experience at our cabin. We do mention in our listing that we offer a low tech and fairly unplugged environment so guests can relax and get away, thus we have chosen a pretty basic WiFi service. Our location is rural and internet choices are limited. This may simply not be sufficient for guests requiring heavy data use. Guests may request a temporary increase in GB service during their stay for a small fee if the need arises. Thank you again for chosing our cabin!

A nice weekend getaway in the woods

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I rented the cabin for a weekend fishing trip. It was a perfect home-base for us, with plenty of access to a lot of different waters nearby. The trains were few and far between and if/when they came, the horn didn’t last long. I will definitely stay here again. 5 stars!

Car: necessary

We are a few doors from County Rd G and Marina Lane in Necedah, WI. The lake is a few blocks from the cabin to the east. There is pier fishing access. Access to closest boat launch is 2 minutes to Osprey Landing for smaller boats and shore fishing or in 5 minutes there are several larger launches and swimming beaches south of the cabin near and in the State Park. Rent Kayaks/canoes too. Fish from the Buckhorn Bridge and off Water Street or there are many other access points to the lake in which to shore fish.

Take your dogs for a swim within 5 minutes off of Water Street which is South and West of the cabin. There are several public bays with more private type swimming areas for families to enjoy a picnic for the day. No picnic tables or other amenities just beach, water and woods.

We are in a rural location. No traffic lights or traffic to mention nearby but there is just what you need as far as necessities at the Buckhorn Store within 5 minutes drive. They have gas, beverages, great pizza and munchies. Have a beer there while you wait. Also get your hunting or fishing licenses there too. 2 good restaurants close by serve anything from breakfast to lunch, to fish fries or surf and turf. Sandy beaches, boat launches and the Buckhorn State Park all within 5 minutes.

Buckhorn Café specializes in polish food. They have great fish fries. You can eat inside or out. Great pig roasts there on Sundays. Many TV's to watch favorite sports. There is a nice stone fireplace in the bar, booths and tables. Bring your dog with you too if you eat outside!

We have 2 boat dealerships within 15 minutes.

Last but not least the Wisconsin Dells is 30 minutes easy drive to the south on I-90.

Need more information. Don't hesitate to ask!
