We care about our guests. Want you to have fun. Helpful information for a good trip overall in the cabin. The cabin has had much tender loving care.

The old time name of the town area where the cabin is was called Stickley. And, the cabin has branches-sticks-logs decorated according to name in history (Stickley, like sticks and this was an old time logging area) and add some fun to your stay. Not far from the cabin was the last stagecoach robbery (which is on Stagecoach Road), west of the cabin (past the waterfalls) and on the way to Lake Gogebic and another boat landing area.

There are many stories and history of the area. And, we want you to create your own fun and personal history.

Others will ask you where you had your vacation----and you can smile and say in the sticks (like the old saying meaning out in the woods, etc.). And, the cabin is actually decorated with real sticks-branches-wood.

History - In the early 1900's a group of 6 prominent mining and steel industrialists purchased large tracts of land just west of Watersmeet and formed the Sylvania Club. These men, who had made their fortunes exploiting the environment, treasured and preserved Sylvania's forests, lakes and wildlife for the intangible wealth of its pristine qualities. Sylvania was unique and rare in that it had escaped the era of logging and the wave of fires that impacted most of the area around it. Club membership changed over the years and the Forest Service purchased the tract of land in 1967 from P.C. Christainson, the last surviving owner, and from the estate of Lawrence Fisher. For the first time, Sylvania was open to the public. All buildings were removed and trails that once accommodated carriages and motor vehicles now serve as hiking trails and portages between lakes.

**This is the area that many movie stars use to come to and President Roosevelt. And, there are many mobster stories in the area (between the ones from Wisconsin and then also Michigan as this is the border area. The museum and others involved in historic preservation such as contacts at Sylvania Outfitters could share some interesting facts on the area**.

Displays, activity pages, dvds, creative wall art, etc. Ceiling fans, fans, air conditioned and curtains-drapes-blinds to help keep it cooler in Summer. For the Winter the cabin has alternate heat sources, more insulation was put in the areas, and other weatherization done in the Winter (as some cabins are so cold otherwise in the Winter), this one stays warmer (even through the 40 below we had in 2013-2014 Winter).

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin is in The Historic Stickley Area. Logging, cabins, historic history of business owners from a long time ago, area(s) which President Roosevelt hunted, fished, etc., mob stories, and more. (Sylvania Natural Wilderness Area has many stories, books, etc. about the area also). This area is toward town (east of the cabin). Stickley (GNIS FID: 1621776) is a populated place located within the Township of Watersmeet, a minor civil division (MCD) of Gogebic County. The elevation of Stickley is 1,634 feet. Stickley appears on the Thayer U.S. Geological Survey Map. Gogebic County is in the Central Time Zone (UTC -6 hours). Many areas in some states are not this high. Just north east approximately of the cabin was the area of "Stickley Lodge" the wilderness retreat for Albert Stickley of Grand Rapids, Michigan{Stickley Brothers Company/Quaint Furniture} brother of Gustav Stickley. Described as palatial, it had eight bedrooms and a huge $30,000.00 pipe organ. Albert used the location to oversee his lumber holdings. After his death lodge was turned into a resort "to a few who desire refinement and the companionship of cultured guests." Burned in the 40s. At one time property had its own railroad spur. With a big "S" on the hillside marking his private train stop, Mr Stickley could be dropped off at the covered shelter with steps leading up the hill to the lodge. You can still make out the grading for the tracks thru the swamp that passes Stickley Lake/Turtle Lake. You can enjoy the area of some of the great men and women that passed through this area many years ago. Visit the area museum (one in Land O'Lakes), walk through the National Forest, and enjoy the adventures.
