- Over 200 feet of dock! Water depth at the end is 48 inches. Feel free to bring your own boat with bumpers to tie up to the dock. We do warn everyone to watch the weather for storms, as they approach quickly. If a storm approaches the option is to use earth anchor (provided) to hold boat in the water during a storm (holds our 4,000 lb boat and allows it enough bounce to not take on water from waves), or best option is to trailer it to prevent damage. Storms are so strong as to overturn a boat lift with a boat in it, as well as detach docks which could damage your boat. Those who are not familiar with Shell Lake do not realize the white caps and storm possibilities on a lake so large. If no storms are in the area you can leave your boat tied up to the dock all week. Dock runs entire length from beach to end of dock which is important as some people don't purchase enough dock so you must walk 100 feet in water to get on their dock or are unable to drive boat up to dock (too shallow water)...moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Shell Lake has been our family destination for over 60 years! It has been our dream to one day own a cabin, and be able to share it with others so they can make memories and have a similar experience to what we have had growing up. We previously rented cabins, as well as stayed at the public campground. This property is family owned, with our family staying in the main house for a large part of the summer, and periodically throughout the school year (though it could be made available to others if the space is needed).
Why the Owner Chose Shell Lake, WI, USA:
Sixty years ago my grandfather packed up my grandmother and their 4 children to drive north until they found something they loved. When they pulled into town they found a sign for Sandy Beach Resort. That's when he decided that this would be the place. When Sandy Beach Resort came up for sale, he wasn't sure how he could manage a resort in Wisconsin, and run his farm in Iowa. My dad has still carried his dream of one day owning a place on Shell Lake, and found it to be reality this past July. Now not only do we have a place to call home, but we can also share the additional cabin with other families so that they can enjoy it too! The previous owners had searched northwest Wisconsin for a few years to find the perfect vacation home, and this was it. When they decided to sell they wanted someone here who would love it as much as they have. And we do!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We purchased this property fully furnished and the previous owners had quite the eye for detail! The beautiful sand castle picture and sea shell/sand dollars/fishing theme definitely reminds you that you are on vacation. It was decorated simply, yet beautifully! Unique pieces perfectly placed throughout. The 12 foot screened in gazebo is lined with white icicle lights for late night board games while the children sleep. Wireless Internet is available should you choose to tap into it, or use this as a getaway and chance to unplug from the rest of the world. My husband has restored the bench next to the cabin so everyone can relax and enjoy the view. The view from the living room is also the view from the master bedroom, so you can roll over and wake up to the sun rising over the lake. Generally you can see 10-12 feet down into the lake, so if you go fish on a rock pile, you can watch the fish and feel them nibbling on your line! That was one highlight when I was little. Our beach is quite shallow, so you can allow your little ones to play in the water in front of you without fear of them getting too deep. To us, this is the perfect home away from home!
