There’s nothing quite like the outdoors. Whether you enjoy fishing, camping, biking, snowmobiling or hunting, it's all within your grasp. Looking out the front door of this beautiful cottage, you will see the breathtaking beauty of the Chippewa River. This cottage is great in any season.

Summertime is great for fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing or paddle boating. Fall is a great time to take a bike ride on the Old Abe Bike Trail, fish on the Chippewa River or go hunting for local wildlife including squirrel, deer, bear, rabbits, fox, etc. just a short distance away.

Winter is great for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and downhill skiing a short distance away.

Spring is a great time to watch the woods come alive after winter. Enjoy family activities such as mountain biking, hiking, fishing and camp fires. Regardless of what season, or all, you intend to visit there is something for everyone.

Local attractions include Ice Age Trail, Leinenkugels Brewery, Brunet Island State Park and close proximity to Lake Holcolmbe and Lake Wissota. In the summer you are within minutes of the Country Fest and Rock Fest grounds and Jim Falls Sturgeon Festival

About Norm and Sue Peters

My wife and I are originally from Ladysmith, WI, which is about 30 miles north on highway 27. My father bought the cottage shortly after we got married. We lived in it for about 3 years before we built our own home next door. When my parents passed away, we inherited the property. We rented it on an annual basis until the last renter nearly destroyed it. I decided we would try the 'rent by the week' idea and see how it went. We are still fairly new at this and consider all suggestions to improve the cottage.

What makes this Cottage unique

The view from the dining room and living room windows is beautiful and so peaceful.

                                                                My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend in mid-October for our "babymoon". The view of the river is fabulous and the location of the cabin is quite close to Brunet Island State Park. We went there a few times to do some day hiking. There are also some bike trails as well. Downtown Cornell was a short drive away and there are some cute cafes to eat at. Norm and Sue were great hosts!

                                                                Very good

                                                                Great View

                                                                my daughter and I stayed at this 2 bedroom cottage on the Chippewa River for a weekend stay. The view of the Chippewa River from the cottage windows was awesome even though it rained all weekend the view was fantastic. We both enjoyed watching the squirrels climbing the trees around the cottage. The cottage was very private with an open floor plan. Sue and Norm were great hosts, we enjoyed our stay. Thanks to Sue and Norm for sharing this cottage with us.

                                                                Our family enjoyed our time staying in this cabin. The owners were so very accommodating, even helped us out when we were lost!!! Our family will surely come and stay in this cabin again, and will totally recommend staying here!!!!!

                                                                Cute cabin on the river!

                                                                My husband and I stayed at the cabin for our wedding anniversary trip. It was a nice place to stay to relax with the water right out the back door with a dock for fishing. The cabin is spacious and accomodating with plenty of room for a family. There is a firepit in the back so remember to pick up some wood before you go. The inside could use some updating but you can't beat it for the price. The outside of the cabin is very nice looking with a new roof and siding. Norm and Sue are very sweet and made sure our stay was enjoyable! Thanks!
