About julie

Birch Cabin was purchased in January, 2011 by Jean Warrior and Richard Althouse of Verona, Wisconsin. Jean grew up vacationing in lake cabins near Nisswa, Minnesota in the 1960’s. Dick and Jean spent many summer vacations in the Boulder Junction area with their three sons, always seeking but never quite finding, the “perfect cabin.” Although the boys are now grown with families of their own, when they saw Birch Cabin, Jean and Dick knew they had finally found their dream lake property.

As clinical psychologists, Jean and Dick know the value of taking a break from daily stresses to unplug, unwind, and re-connect with nature and each other. We have an assortment of games and puzzles to keep you busy inside, and have nature guides, bike trail maps, paddling route maps, and information on hikes, scenic destinations, and nature education opportunities near Boulder Junction. We invite our guests to explore the undeveloped shoreline of our own lakes up close in canoes or kayaks, and to enjoy evenings gazing at the stars, roasting marshmallows over a campfire, listening for the haunting cry of the loons or tracking down the famous white deer of Boulder Junction.

Why julie chose Boulder Junction

We love the peace and natural beauty of our 3-lake chain. The islands in Wildcat lake are great to paddle around, and we often see bald eagles, otters, or herons. The views are gorgeous, and the quiet is amazing. Yet, we can get on a new bike trail just a mile down the road and peddle to Boulder Junction.

Northwoods Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

It's always nice to get away to the Northwoods. My husband, our two pups and myself enjoyed our stay at the Birch cabin. The cabin had all of the amenities needed for a very comfortable stay. The three season/screen porch was wonderful for an evening sunset or morning coffee. Unfortunately, Mother Nature was not very cooperative with lot of rain so it was nice to have a quick fire in the gas fireplace to take the chill out.

Julie was very professional and very nice to work with. Will definitely return when we can!

Really nice cabin on a great lake!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to meet the owners of the Birch cabin. They were finishing up some items when we arrived. They were really nice and helpful with info about the lake and the area. The cabin was clean and well equip. It has a great view off the front porch and work well for 4 adult siblings up in the North Woods to fish and hang out. We have rented this cabin again this fall. Definitely recommend this cabin for a great North Woods experience. Wild cat Lake is a good fishing lake!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I rented two cabins at this resort: Birch and Point. I stayed in Point, but Birch was our "homebase" for family meals with the beautiful screened in porch. The bench at the end of the dock was a peaceful place to watch kayakers and birds. In addition, Birch is right next to the public beach area, so it was very convenient to swim with the kids or head out on the pedal boat!

The resort itself is relatively calm with a small play structure for younger children and a great grassy area to play catch or other games. The short bike ride into town and proximity to a variety of bike trails and lakes made this a wonderful summer getaway!

Smaller than it looks; part of a larger camp

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is part of a larger camp with multiple cabins and a lodge. It's supposed to be quiet after 10pm but the week we stayed there was a high school fishing club staying there. Not quiet! The lake is supposed to be "no wake" but no one enforces it and even the camp staff whizzed across the lake. We did enjoy fishing from the dock and kayaking to see the ducks and loons. The cabin living room is small with a recliner and sofa and we couldn't seat the 5 of us in there.

Wonderful birthday week getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Point Cabin, adding a night more than we planned because we were having such a nice, relaxing time. The cabin is cozy, with just the needed amenities, which is exactly what we look for in a vacation cabin. We brought our own canoes, but there are boats available for use. The view of the lake and setting on the point are exquisite! The added bonus is being able to bring our dog, who loved sitting on the porch and watching for squirrels. The lodge hosts are so nice and Linda offers a delicious breakfast. We hiked, spent time in the Boulder Junction shops and my husband fished. All in all, a perfect fall vacation.

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5

I actually stayed at a neighboring cabin, but have been inside this particular cabin on numerous occasions. I can honestly say that there isn't a more beautiful view anywhere than on this point. We couldn't stop looking out at the lake and all of the nature that surrounds it. The cabin is kept extremely clean, is absolutely charming, and has all the amenities that you need. This resort and cabin is one of the nicest places that you will ever stay in the Northwoods. My favorite part of the day was sitting on the deck, watching the sunset with a cocktail in my hand! I can't wait to go back!
