It's impossible for the photos to show just how great this place is. A perfect set-up for a kid-friendly vacation. The sleeping loft is stocked with "awesome Legos" (according to our 4 year old), other toys and games, and two comfy beds. The main cabin area has two separate sitting areas: one with TV (which never got turned on) and another with a gas fireplace and great view of the river. The kitchen is efficient but full sized and nicely appointed with everything we needed.
The adjacent creek is a highlight -- it was only about a foot and a half deep so it felt safe and we spent a lot of time on the dock casting a fishing pole and watching a river otter explore. The fire pit provided the opportunity to stay outside later listening to the creek and roasting marshmallows in the October chill.
The Wolf River trail is accessible directly across the main road. We biked about 14 miles on a smooth, wide path running parallel the river just west of highway 55 with incredible views and fall color. We also spent a day hiking trails around Jack Lake which was about a 25 minute drive away but well worth it. Did a little fishing on Pickerel Lake which was a short 10-15 drive from the cabin. We didn't even scratch the surface of all there is to explore so we'll be back for sure!
This place felt very much like a cabin with all the modern convenience but still a true get-away in a unique space in a peaceful, private setting. It's well cared for, super clean, and makes for a perfect weekend with kids or kid-free! Thanks so much, David!!!
