About Michelle Claypool and/Will Claypool

We are semi-retired and have enjoyed our cabin in Danbury, WI for many years. When this property in Minong came up for sale, the decision was easy. On one and half acres in a wooded setting, overlooking Lake Pokegama, only two miles from town and within a day's drive to Duluth, Hayward, and the Twin Cities. The cabin is so inviting and comfortable what we want to share the experience. Come relax, play and explore Northern WI and all it has to offer.

Michelle Claypool and/Will Claypool purchased this house in 2014

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We are a team of Catholic missionaries for a college campus in Southern Minnesota, and we were looking for a place to get away and retreat for our end of the semester team offsite. Cecil's was absolutely perfect for us! Plenty of room, fully furnished and supplied with all we needed, very comfortable beds, and beautiful view of the water! We are very blessed to have this place to rejuvenate and spend good quality time together!

Very Cute Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cecil's Crows Nest because we wanted to have our whole family (3 families) under one roof when we attended a wedding nearby. Great choice! This property fit our needs completely. It was clean and comfortable. My 6 year old grandson spent a lot of time counting all the crows throughout the home. He had a lot of fun looking for them. The weather was a little cool for lake activities but we enjoyed getting out on the dock and checking out lake life of snails and frogs.

Thanks Michelle and Will and for allowing us to "borrow" your home for the weekend. We really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin -- even with rainy weather! Everything was very clean, organized and welcoming. Great location with fun local atmosphere just down the road. We would love to come back in the future!

So much nicer than a cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our second stay at Cecil's Crow Nest. The house is comfortable with plenty of beds and living space. It was too warm to use the fire pit...but we definitely would if we were here during a cooler month. We biked Friday after arriving and had the road mostly to ourselves as we headed down Lake Nancy Road toward 3 Mile Road. For dinner, we walked over and sat outside on the deck at Cuzy's (the old Buck & Wing). The pizza and salads were good and the view of the lake was even better.

Like being at home only at someone elses place

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything it says it is.

All we needed to do was bring our food and clothes. Everything else was provided.

The house was neat and clean when we arrived.

The only one negative comment I have is it only has one shower so for six adults and two children timing is important.

Other than that I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to relax.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Taking a shower or a bath is a personal choice and we are happy to offer both at cecil'scrowsnest. Many people have enjoyed the bathtub we have in addition to the spacious walk in shower featuring two shower heads. The handheld flexible faucet with the tub allows rinsing after a relaxing soak. It is our pleasure to provide both options.

Relaxing and peaceful birthday weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle your cabin was just what we needed for my husband's 40th birthday! We had a lovely, relaxing weekend with our siblings. And it was a perfect set-up of bedrooms with privacy for everyone! Your cabin was beautiful. The area was quiet, the cabin was clean and comfortable. We loved grilling on the deck! We had a nice bonfire in the pit and played lots of yard games. And my husband got to spend 2 days fishing off the dock and catching lots!

A cool surprise was all the turtles to be looking out for!

I would recommend this peaceful, relaxing place to anyone. Thank you for a lovely stay, and I hope we can all visit again soon!
