About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6. On the lake, near hiking and biking trails.

Ferns is one of three cabins to rent at Fiesta on the Lake, a small family run resort on Trout Lake.

Ferns is a 2 bedroom cabin with 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, and a living room with 2 futons. One bedroom has a double bed and the other bedroom has a bunk bed with a twin on top and a double on the bottom. The cabin comes with a fire pit and a grill.

Nestled in the Northern Highland State Forest on the shore of the largest lake in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. This cabin offers a beautiful view of the lake and a shoreline shared only with two other cabins. We are located 3 miles from Boulder Junction.

Trout Lake is crystal clear with a shallow sandy bottom stretching out almost 200 feet from the shore before dropping off to over 100 feet deep.

There is a 200 foot walk down to the shoreline where there is a dock with outdoor furniture for relaxing and listening the the waves come in.

In addition, a trail connects our beach to a nature walk through a nearby bog and the Northern Highlands State Forest.

The Boulder Junction bike trail is located a half a mile away and connects to Crystal Lake, Sayner, Boulder Junction and beyond.

A pontoon boat is available for rent, or you can rent various water sports equipment from town.

Clean & Cozy

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very basic, but has everything you would need to enjoy the beautiful setting on Trout Lake. Beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of warm blankets available (we stayed in November during a snowy cold snap). The bathroom is large and had a surprisingly great shower with plenty of hot water.

The wi-fi did not function at all during our stay, so I wouldn't expect it to be available...just make due. The cell service up here has improved greatly over the years, so we were never without a connection to the internet or to make calls. Also, there is no TV in the cabin, which was fine with us, but you may want to bring up something to watch a movie on if that is something that you need for entertainment.

Overall, a really cozy and clean place that allows dogs, which was really great to find up here. Downtown Boulder Junction was great and lively for this time of year, which was great to see. We had a really wonderful dinner Saturday night @ Aqualand Ale House. Do give it a try when you are up!

We used it as a great base for exploring.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was in good repair and well stocked in housekeeping supplies and utensils -- beyond our expectations. Everything was clean and worked and the on-line pictures were accurate. The owners were welcoming and gracious, like long term good friends. We only used the cabin for sleep because we spent the days from breakfast to the evening campfire with our extended younger family camping in the nearby state forest. The uncontrollable weather (cold and rain) precluded using the place's water craft and swimming beach or perfectly placed lake side patio. But the cabin's two wall mounted heaters kept the place cozy.

I am a seasoned outdoors person who has a lot of experiences from back country backpacking to exclusive resorts. For the money you will not beat this property.

In more detail: The entire property is immaculate (inside and out). No undergrowth throughout the property to hold excessive bugs etc. The trees have all been trimmed properly (just enough) to get great views of the lake but not barren. Many fire pits throughout the property (each cabin also has their own) with Adirondack chairs. Plenty of cut wood to grab when needed.

The entire cabin was VERY clean with comfortable beds and plenty of sitting areas. Bathroom and kitchen extremely clean with all working parts (stove, oven, facets, micro, toilet, hot water, etc).

The water front and pier are in excellent condition with sitting areas throughout the property. (Added bonus of a concrete patio so the adults don’t have to constantly be sitting in the sand) with ample tables next to the chairs for a cold drink. The beach area is clear of all debris. Water front seems to be approximately 200’ wide with a swimming area that is 0-3’ deep as far out as 200’.

The building that was the dining area from the original girl’s camp can be used for ping pong, reading a book or kid’s toys up to 6 years old. Owner went out of their way to bring in a fish cleaning station with plans to build a new station with a roof and screening.

One of the owners (Lynn) lives on the property. She is VERY nice and gives you your space – however she is accessible whenever you need something.

I highly recommend this property.

Stay here - you’ll love it

Fiesta on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Excellent owners and staff, friendly, and accessible. Only, and I mean only draw back was the limited internet access. Otherwise, nice secluded area with excellent lake access
