Property description

Park-like setting with over 300' of level frontage, no hills or steps! Very private, year-round, log cabin/home on a quiet dead end road. This updated 3 BR/2 BA cabin has everything you need for a true Northwoods cabin experience BUT done in comfort! Not enough room? We also have a bunk house that sleeps 4-5, so sleeps a total of 10-11 guests. Located on the popular recreation and fishing lake, the Minong Flowage, you are surrounded by pine trees in a true Northwoods setting. The interior is warm, inviting, and comfortable.

CAPACITY: Summer with Bunkhouse (10); All other seasons, main cabin only (6).

This non-smoking cabin was remodeled and expanded, and includes updates like: stainless steel appliances, pine plank flooring, tile and slate flooring, vaulted ceilings, and LOTS of windows for GREAT VIEWS of the lake! We also have a massive fireplace that is bi-functional, can be used as gas or wood-burning.

The cabin has an open concept, with a breakfast bar AND a dining room for those big family meals. With a beautiful deck and 300+ feet of lake frontage, and almost 5 acres of land, there's plenty of space to roam and enjoy the outdoors. Kids bored? We also have an arcade game, Centipede, in our full basement. The home is equipped with washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher. If it rains, no worries, we have tons of board games, 3 vcrs and satellite tv. Located 8 miles west of Minong, Wisconsin; 30 miles west of Hayward, Wisconsin; about 2 hours from the Twin Cities; and just over an hour from Duluth.

Some of the other amenities include: flat-screen tv, satellite tv, 3 dvd players, 3 tvs, an arcade game, ceiling fans, a Keurig coffee machine plus regular coffee machine, a piano for those sing-alongs, game table, a gas grill, a charcoal grill, and a firepit with chairs for making those s'mores! For outdoors - we have croquet, bocce ball, badmitton. For fun on the lake, there are floaties and 2 canoes available to our guests PLUS a dock to moor your boat. You can launch your boat at the public landing under a mile away.

If you need any supplies there is a great little store, we call the 'Corner Store' located within 4 miles. This store provides groceries, liquor, wine and beer, dvd rentals, fishing licenses and bait, gas, propane, and a full selection of hardware tools and supplies as well as a post office.

You won't find a more quiet or fun place to relax, fish and for lake recreation. Nothing more fun than drifting around the lake on a pontoon boat and visiting the many restaurants or islands on the lake. If you golf - there are 2 nearby golf courses and many more within 30 minutes. If you like ATV's, this is a fantastic area for lots of trails. Great for summer time, but our home is great YEAR-ROUND; whether you are snowmobiling, ice fishing, hunting,or cross country skiing - there's trails and something for everyone! For those rainy days, head over to Spooner or Hayward for 1/2 or full day of shopping or going to the movies. Even more adventurous - head to Duluth for a day of alpine skiing or over to Bayfield and explore the Apostle Islands.

If you have any questions, just ask and we'll help you plan a great vacation. Sleeps 6 in main cabin; 4 in bunk house. Bunkhouse not available in Winter.

You may not have heard about this GEM of a lake, but anyone looking to enjoy the peace and tranquility of Wisconsin’s Northwoods combined with some great recreational activities and fun restaurants, can find exactly what they are looking for in Minong. Minong is a small town but offers everything for those looking to experience the great outdoors, ALL SEASONS. From fishing to tubing to just watching the colors of fall turn, Minong is a perfect place to take in the popular activities of each season. We have FANTASTIC trails for riding ATVs, snowmobiling, and skiing (cross country); everything to keep outdoor enthusiasts busy all year round. In the summer - you will see people sailing, water skiing and tubing, canoeing and lake kayaking, going to sandy island and sliding down the hill, or just going for a pontoon cruise and checking out the different islands and restaurants. For groceries, we have a little corner store for those quick, little trips and in Minong a great little grocery store for stocking up for the week. Looking for a good restaurant, nothing is more fun than taking the pontoon boat to various restaurants on the lake or the neighboring Cranberry Lake, which you can get to through a channel.

If you want to Fish - look no further. The Minong Flowage is a 1,564 acre lake with northern, walleye, bass and panfish.

Or in the winter - walk out the front door and ice fish.

Some of our favorite places to eat are: The Viewpoint, The Golden Chipmunk, Pogos, Bootleggers, The Lookout, and Gruzy's, and of course we love Seaman's Bar for a quick stop for popcorn, pizza, or ice cream while spending day on the lake.

For those ATV and Snowmobile Fans: We Have hundreds of miles of trails surrounding us! The Wild Rivers Trail is a 96 mile long state trail and runs directly through Minong and connects to other snowmobile and ATV systems.

For those hunters: there is LOTS of county forest land to explore. From fun in the sun in Summer to Ice Fishing and Snowmobiling in the winter - we've got it all!


Owner info

About the owner: We purchased an existing cabin and with two little ones decided to remodel.....this has been a JOY to our family and friends and we hope to share the incredible lake experience with others. It truly is a great place to spend some time - so come and explore and we'll help you plan a great vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Why do I LOVE this cabin? NO STEPS - this cabin has a gentle slope to lake, which is ideal for almost everyone and a rarity to find in the Northwoods - LOVE IT! This lake has islands and restaurants you can boat to, again, a rarity to find, and so much fun to explore. The cabin is really a four-season lake home, but it has the Northwoods feel plus comfort with all the amenities and custom upgrades.
