3 Bedroom, Newly Renovated Lake-front Cottage with Full Amenities + Fireplace

Serendipity Cottage/Cabin at Cable, Wisconsin

3 bedroom cottage on the lakeshore of Lake Namakagon's Mumm's Bay. Perched only feet from the lakeshore, this private location offers a panoramic lake view, sandy lake bottom for good swimming, stand-up paddleboards (SUPs & kayaks available - inquire when reserving), lakeside fire pit and private dock for easy access to these popular fishing and recreational waters.

Enjoy quiet campfires and the sounds of the waves breaking on the shore with the Loons in the quiet background. A private dock (pier) and nice seclusion make this a pristine choice!

Inside, cozy up around the fire in the great room on the large sectional. On rainy days, enjoy the entertainment system with Apple TV, blue-tooth enabled sound bar, and DVD player. Access the high-speed Wi-Fi from all the rooms. Or choose from our selection of games and puzzles for all ages!

Open kitchen, updated appliances, dishwasher and all the kitchen electronics and dishes you need to easily entertain.

Cozy beds + bedding in all rooms and plenty of sleeping spaces for the whole crew! The updated bathroom is elegant and includes all modern amenities. (Just bring your own towels.)

Outside, access all the outdoor sports and recreation you can imagine! From biking to fishing to cross-country skiing, the Cable/Hayward area provides miles of the best off-road trails in the midwest!

Serendipity is smack dab in the heart of some of Wisconsin’s best mountain biking single track, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing! Ride your snowmobile to the front door of your cottage rental when you stay at Serendipity! Easy access to Snowmobile Trail #8 and the trails around Lake Namakagon. Some of the most beautiful and challenging X-C ski trails in the Cable, Wisconsin Area and in the State of Wisconsin are only minutes from Serendipity, including the Rock Lake cross-country ski trails, Namekagon Ski Trail and the world-renowned American Birkebeiner Ski Trail.

Lake Namakagon is the tenth largest natural lake in Wisconsin. *Serendipity* cottage is located on the shoreline of Picnic Point on Mumm's Bay. One of only three Wisconsin lakes to be managed as a trophy musky lake, Lake Namakagon is a fisherman’s paradise. We regularly see musky catches of 40” or more! This lake also offers abundant walleye, bass, northern pike, crappies and pan fish.

About Jason & Colette

Jason first fell in love with this home when he rented it from the previous owners! He had spent years visiting the Cable area for the Birkebeiner, Fat Tire, and to enjoy all the amazing outdoor recreation. He particularly loved Lake Namakogon - one of the most pristine and beautiful lakes Northwestern Wisconsin has to offer - and the privacy of this property. So when we randomly found out the previous owners were moving south and the cabin was up for sale, it felt like serendipity! We were so excited to move into our little piece of paradise! We enjoy the privacy of our cabin, and love coming here year-round. The cabin has been recently renovated, with updated amenities and everything you could possibly need. The style is modern rustic, with beautiful countertops and fireplace, vaulted ceiling, updated wood interior, and plenty of Northwoods style decorations. Sitting in one of the calmest areas on the lake, Mumm's Bay is known for fantastic fishing. The cabin is 25' from the water, so you're constantly reminded of nature's beauty, whether cooking, dining or relaxing. A great family stay for sure! We are so excited to welcome you to our slice of heaven!

Jason & Colette purchased this Cabin in 2015

                                                              Cabin was extremely clean and felt almost new inside. Had all of the amenities you'll ever need. Having nice furniture and wifi was great since it was chilly outside. We were still able to play with the kids along the shoreline. Being that close to the water was very relaxing. The kids enjoyed watching the wildlife. Thanks for sharing your place, hope to return during warmer weather!

                                                              Nicely decorated and furnished cabin for a long weekend! Close to the water and convenient and quiet location on the lake. Lots of games for our rain day.. perfect spot in any weather... Thanks

                                                              Thanks for the review! Was great having you & hope you can visit again in the future.

                                                              Quaint, private, and hassle free time away

                                                              Michael M.

                                                              The cabin is very easy to find and is in a secluded bay. There were maybe 10-15 cabins in the entire bay, of which we saw very little activity. It seemed we had the bay to ourselves.

                                                              The water is about 4' deep around the entire edges of the bay and goes out quite aways, before quickly dropping to 18-20' toward the center areas.

                                                              The cabin is pretty straightforward - 3 bedrooms as you walk-in, a bathroom, a large living area to the right and kitchen to the left.

                                                              The decor is nicely done and not overdone. Whimsical signs and phrases, nothing tacky or distasteful.

                                                              There was plenty of seating both in the house and outdoor chairs available in screened in patio. There were also plenty of daily items you might be looking for: salt/pepper, dish soap, paper towels, etc.

                                                              The board game selection was fun - the sort of games we don't own, but played in the past. Easy rules and fast games, just easy fun - we played a game each night.

                                                              There were DVD's provided as well - mostly teen to adult selections, but you can always bring your own too. They had Garfield and Marmaduke - so we did have something to put on for the kids after a long day of swimming, boating, and fishing.

                                                              The lake itself is sprawling (we got lost for over an hour at one point) - we later discovered maps in the house that would have been good to look at before we went out :) - we had no idea how similar it would all look once we got to the North part of the lake.

                                                              Very minor gripes and nothing to dissuade someone from staying - the kitchen sink was a bit odd, you either get very slow running water, or very fast water if you hit the spray nozzle button. Maybe there was a trick, but we adjusted and made it work. Shower drained slowly and Jason/Colette said they'd get that info to their cleaner to remedy.

                                                              The property itself is long and clean. There is a neighbor on the one side, but there was no activity, and if there were, I think the trees and general respect would have shielded any noise. The other side is trees only. It runs long, a few hundred feet from drive to lake.

                                                              The dock is newer, is even, & quite long - made for plenty of dock fishing room.

                                                              5 minutes North is the Loon Saloon - groceries, bait, and good pub food. 10 minutes South are the Garmisch and Lakewoods resorts,

                                                              Overall we had a great time and it was hard to leave. We would recommend the cabin and property to others interested in a quiet space that has all you need to enjoy time away from city life.

                                                              Very clean and Ideally situated

                                                              What a great stay. Great restaurants around and friendly people. Mumm's bay, on which the cabin is located, is very quiet and great fishing. Can't wait to book again!!
