Only 75 min from St. Paul, Minnesota, this beautifully remodeled resort in Polk County, Wisconsin was COMPLETELY remodeled in 2015/2016. It is situated on the east side of Balsam Lake - where you’re able to enjoy its beautiful waterscape sunsets from both the cabin or the large, 8 person seat at the end of the dock.
This lodge is very spacious with over 5,500 square feet, complete with 7 bedrooms, a living room, family room, entertainment room, spacious kitchen, mud room, and much more. The living room has vaulted ceilings and a log fireplace where you can curl up on the couch for late night movies on the 60” TV. The family room area is great for the kids to hang out and play or watch their own movies on another 60" TV. Or enjoy a game of pool, ping pong, Foosball or shuffleboard - all in the lower level! And the entire family can enjoy meals together in the fully equipped kitchen and huge, 18' custom dining table that seats your entire group!
The cabin’s 7 bedrooms are furnished with 6 queens and 7 bunk beds (14 twins). Every bedroom has a closet large enough to fit a crib mattress and/or Pack & Play – doubling as a separate sleeping space for families. The cabin also has 5 bathrooms, complete with 9 sinks, 2 showers and 2 shower/tub combos.
The property has a large, level yard and a huge, 1,000 SF dock with plenty of space for your boat to tie-off. Up to 2 boat lifts are also available for an additional fee. The end of the dock is a spacious, 16’x12’ sundeck and is also furnished with a 12’ bench that comfortably seats 8 adults – perfect for enjoying sunsets or the frequent, late night fireworks from neighboring cabins around the lake. Your children will absolutely love the sandy shore/lake bottom and the 10’ waterslide! Plus, out 100 feet from shore, the water is just 3-4 feet deep – plenty of ‘safe’ water for your kids to play for hours! The fire pit will also satisfy the evening sweet-tooth for those who enjoy s’mores or other campfire meals and treats.
Balsam Lake itself has much to offer – 2000+ acres of beautiful water, sandy lake bottom and great bays for water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing and all other water sports. With 7 occupied islands (and many smaller ones) and over 65 miles of shoreline, you’ll never run out of lake to explore! There is also great fishing (panfish and sport fish - including walleye), a restaurant you can reach by boat, and a marina with pontoon and fishing boat rental and a gas pump for fueling up on the lake! Plus, the natural springs that feeds the lake help to keep the water circulating and cleaner than manmade lakes. Wild life at the lake is a bonus enjoyment – turtles, loons, ducks, eagles, deer and even black squirrels! Downtown Balsam Lake is a quaint little strip and also fun to explore – great ice cream shop (a must-visit spot if your group has little ones), antique store, bait and tackle shop, dollar store, taverns, restaurants and more.
Winter activities are also a highlight of this cabin. Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing are all enjoyable activities on the frozen tundra or the 18 mile Cattail State Trail. Plus, Balsam Lake’s ice fishing could arguably top its summer fishing! After a short 25 minute drive, you can find yourself at either of the region’s best downhill ski areas – Wild Mountain or Trollhaugen! Not to mention, both have awesome outdoor summer fun activities as well.
We know a great, large lake place is hard to come by. That’s why we are excited to share ours with you! We hope you’ll feel right at home as you walk in the door of our cabin… We know you will make special memories together as you enjoy both the cabin and this beautiful lake in this peaceful “Up North” setting.
