Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We built our own Cabin in 2004 across the lake from Birch Bay Cabin. We spend our summers on Clear Lake and are typically available at the lake for anything you may need - while we respect your privacy! We love Clear lake so much we decided to buy Birch Bay and share the unique blend of quiet and active fun with other families. Our kids spend their summer fishing, water skiing, biking and sometimes just enjoying a book on the screen porch. I spent my summers on Clear lake as my family owned the resort on the north end of the lake from 1950 thru about 1980. We sold the resort but because of the special nature of Clear lake have always owned property here. The resort is now converted to private cabins, but myself & two siblings still own property on the lake. Many owners on Clear lake hail from the Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis and Chicago areas. We take great pride in offering a clean, cozy, trouble-free retreat for you to enjoy sport as well as relaxation. As we summer across the lake, you can rest assured that any question or concern you have will be addressed ASAP.

Why the Owner Chose Minocqua, WI, USA:
Clear lake is a 212 acre lake in Oneida County with the feeling the you can have it all! Enjoy 'silent sports' like sailing, biking or kayaking, while also being able to enjoy water skiing, fishing or just laying out in the sun. The low-density of Clear lake at under 40 homes is unique as other lakes of similar size boast as many as 100 homes. You can enjoy seclusion, but are only 15 minutes from Lac du Flambeau or 25 from Minocqua where you can shop at major retailers, enjoy unique restaurants and take in a water ski show. Day-trips to Lake Superior, or canoeing on the Flambeau river and countless other special summer memories can be made from Clear lake. No internet or cable TV, there is a Verizon cell tower in close proximity if you choose to remain connected. WiFi is available at several locations in Lac du Flambeau or Minocqua if you need to stay in touch.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sit and enjoy quite sunrise from the 4-season porch, watch bald eagles fish from nearby white pines. Roast marshmallows on the lakeside fire-pit or cook a lake-side shore lunch there 300+ acre State natural area and park abut the property to the west with towering Hemlock, maple and birch trees creating a 'Black Forest' type atmosphere. There is no public boat landing on Clear lake, therefore the boat traffic is a fraction of surrounding lakes. ((Private, gated boat launch for your use is located on this property.)) Catch bluegill, crappie, large and smallmouth bass, walleye, northern and Muskie right off the pier. Many loons also call Clear lake their home - listen to there calls from the pier or from the porch with windows on three sides open to enjoy the breezes. Water ski with a nearly perfect mile-by-half-mile rectangle formed by the lake. Residents are friendly and courteous and we consider ourselves a special lot having the vision to choose Clear lake as our 'home away from home'. Pontoon boat included with additional rental fee and security deposit.
