North Woods Cabin on Lake Minocqua: A perfect mix of getaway and access to fun!

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom 1 bath North Woods Cabin on sought after Lake Minocqua sleeps 6-8


Wonderfully situated steps from sought after Lake Minocqua at the end of a private drive. It's less than a mile walk along the Bearskin Trail in to the town of Minocqua and all it has to offer! And just minutes from Hwy 70 where you will find all the conveniences of a full service grocery store (Trigs), Walmart, and other services a larger town has to offer.

The cabin features a spectacular view of Lake Minocqua from the large picture window in the living room.

The wood interior adds warmth and charm. The living/dining area is open to the kitchen allowing for plenty of room to gather. Equipped with Internet, Cable TV and a DVD player. We have lots of card and board games too if you prefer to unplug!

Three private bedrooms, each with two windows for good air flow, a dresser and a small closet, will keep all the guests comfortable. NEW in AUGUST 2015: A window air conditioning unit!

The cabin is just steps up the hill from the water's edge. Lake Minocqua has excellent swimming and world class fishing. The boat and fishing pier is closest to the cabin and the swimming pier with raft and sandy bottom is just a few steps down from there. A fish cleaning house is available for your use. Bring your own boat or rent one from one of many local businesses. The public boat launch is about 1/4 mile away by boat, and you can launch your boat there or rent one from one of the many local rental businesses and most will bring it right to that same launch! (No boat is included with the cabin).

A cabin vacation wouldn't be complete without a campfire and cookout, and there are 4 shared fire pits, 2 are just steps from this cabin.

Charcoal grill and picnic table are waiting for you to use!

You can walk less than a mile along the Bearskin Trail to restaurants, shopping, parks, Minocqua-bats waterski show, bars and other attractions in town.

Please see the calendar and rates for more information.

We will be happy to work with you to have our weekly rental guests reserve our cabin the same week year after year, as many of our guests already do!

This cabin is part of an association that has 6 free standing, independently owned cabins with 2-3 bedrooms each. We only own this one, but some of the other cabins are available for rent from the other owners. We may be able to secure an additional cabin for you to rent if you have a larger group. Please let us know if you are interested in that. Please see the photographs for views of some of the other cabins at the resort, and their proximity to this cabin.

We have a professional cleaning service and we need to pass the cleaning fee we pay along to guests. Please see the rates portion for details.

There is NO daily housekeeping available.

There is reserved parking for 2 cars. Limited guest parking is available too.

ONE watercraft per unit: fishing or ski boat, or jet ski. The pier does not have space to tie up more than one boat/watercraft per cabin.

There is parking for one boat trailer on site.

This cabin is not wheelchair accessible and may not be a good choice for guests who have limited mobility. Access to the cabin is across the mowed lawn and access to the lake is by steps or a grassy hill.

Please ask if you have concerns related to access to resort amenities.

About Mrs. Margareet "Reet" Soot

We have vacationed in the North Woods for over 30 years and finally bought our own piece of Minocqua paradise!

Mrs. Margareet "Reet" Soot purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mrs. Margareet "Reet" Soot chose Minocqua

This cabin has everything we were looking for: ON Lake Minocqua because of it's fishing and boating options, closer to town by foot than we ever dreamed, quiet setting, beautiful lawn, fire pits, great swimming, wonderful balance of trees and open space.

What makes this cabin unique

The location cannot be beat. And with 3 bedrooms it's great for a family with kids, girl's get together or guy's fishing trip! The proximity of the cabin to the lake, fire pits, and the short walk to town give it a mixture of privacy and access that is unmatched anywhere else.

Overall a nice cabin in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice and what we expected! The only down side was there was a misunderstanding about lake access. I understood from the picture I was looking at and our initial conversations that the cabin was just steps from the lake and that would have been wonderful as a couple of us could not do stairs. In reality when we arrived our cabin #6 was at the top of the hill and there were 22 stairs down to the lake area and other cabins. After calling Marika the manager of the property right away we figured out it was just a misunderstanding by both of us and she was very nice in handling the issue. If not for the stairs we certainly would rent the cabin again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Linda for the review! I am so sorry that it was not clear from the pictures posted and our multiple contacts that there are stairs to the lake. But I am glad that everything else met your expectations! We try very hard to represent everything accurately and have tweaked the description so as to avoid this same misunderstanding going forward! Have a great summer!

Great Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the cabin over the Columbus Day Holiday weekend. The leaves were at peak color, the downtown area was within walking distance using the trail bridge, and most of the downtown businesses were still open for the late tourist season. The cabin was cozy and open. Everything we needed was there. We made use of the dock with our fishing kayaks. It was great to enjoy our early morning coffee while fishing off the dock. We made some great memories and can't wait to go back.

The cabin was clean Ann comfortable. Cable TV was a plus.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable. We came to fish and LOTS of lakes available. Fishing was also good. Cabin is just what we needed for our 4 fishermen. Dock was stable and was easy to access. Large enough for our 24 ft boat. Lots to do in the area to do either by car or boat. Lots of fun.

Great cabin & awesome walkable location

  • 5 of 5

Cabin & shared amenities have everything you need. The location is great becuase you can drive to the grocery store in about 3 minutes and can talk a walk into town and enjoy the restaurants, etc. in Minocqua.

Great location, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We went to Minocqua earlier this year than we have in the past and were happy to find a place so close to town yet remote. This cabin is just what we needed, close to town, on the water (up a small hill) with all of the amenities for us and our kids. We fished from the pier and on the lake, kayaked, water skied, etc. The nice thing about this part of Lake Minocqua is that it's on the other side of the Bearskin Trail so it's away from the regular boating traffic. It's an easy walk to town for restaurants and bars as well as Torpy park for the kids. We will back for many years to come.
