About Northwoods Home Rentals

Owners Jean and Dick are both licensed psychologists practicing in the Madison area. Jean grew up vacationing with her family in the Nisswa, Minnesota area, in a variety of lake cabins. When their three sons were young, Jean and Dick and the boys enjoyed vacations in many resorts near Boulder Junction, always seeking, but never quite finding 'the perfect cabin.' Point Cabin, with its quintessential 'up north' atmosphere, felt to us like that perfect place.

Northwoods Home Rentals purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Northwoods Home Rentals chose Presque Isle

Point Cabin is a classic lakefront cabin, right down to the screen door that slams when the kids run out to the lake. We love the fact that we can't see neighbors or buildings, just woods, water, and blue sky. Dogs love Point Cabin, with the dock to jump off, ducks and squirrels to chase, and no traffic to avoid. We love to kayak. The Wildcat chain offers great paddling, big enough to be interesting, with five islands in Wildcat Lake, loads of wildlife, and much natural shoreline. Big and Little Kitten lakes are friendly sized lakes, small enough for young or beginning paddlers to practice safely while remaining in eyesight from shore. We also love to bike, and never find enough time to ride all the gorgeous paved trails nearby. New bike trail to Boulder Junction begins just a mile down the road.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Loved it: perfect in every way. Highlight was listening to the peeper frogs at night and the loon yodeling on the lake to mark his territory. And watching the crescent moon sink behind the pines after watching the most gorgeous multi-colored sunset. Thanks for all! Tell us about your favorite feature of the property. Location and how equipped the cabin was. Being on the point was much more private than the other cabins and the view couldn't be beat. Loved that the cabin had absolutely everything we needed and space was used so efficiently. We loved the deck, fire pit, pier, and the use of canoes/kayaks. It was perfect and Big Kitten/ Wildcat are beautiful and wild

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay again this year at the Point Cabin. We have stayed at the Point Cabin for the last three years. We had been coming to the Boulder Junction area for the last 24 years and had stayed at a family cottage until moving to the Point Cabin. Our need to move locations came at the last minute and were fortunate to learn about Wildcat Lodge and the Point Cabin. It is perfect for our week away up North. The grounds are well maintained and the cabin provides all the basic necessities we need to get away from the fast paced life we lead the rest of the year! The Point Cabin is a real treasure.
