PRIVATE LAKESIDE CABIN - WEEKLY AND LONG WEEKEND RATES AVAILABLE

Spooner Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

Enjoy your vacation in the time-honored Wisconsin tradition--UP AT THE LAKE. This family-owned cabin is located on Lake McKinley which is eight miles northwest of Spooner and two hours northeast of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Warm, honey-colored knotty pine paneling surrounds you as you enter the great room. The decor is rustic but do not let that fool you--all new carpeting, bathroom fixtures, and appliances (even washer and dryer for your convenience) all immaculate. The three bedrooms are all paneled in different versions of pine and the main floor bathroom has a wall history of the cabin. Scoot down the spiral staircase to the family room in the walk-out basement with a Franklin wood stove for those chilly evenings. There is a large bathroom down here for the shower after swimming. A spacious deck on both levels gives you a wonderful view of the lake. Nearby is the small guest house with bunk beds which the kids love.

Cabin Setting: The cabin has one quarter of a mile of shoreline and 13 acres of heavily wooded land which affords you a degree of privacy seldom found. Situated on point, the cabin overlooks a 105-acre lake (30 feet maximum depth) that provides excellent fishing with northern pike, various panfish, bass and some walleye present. A plus for the younger non-swimmer is the shallow depth at shoreline with gradual increase in depth. No drop offs. A 16-foot fishing boat with 25 hp. motor as well as a canoes, rowboat, and kayak are available. Additional photos can be seen at… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar935txNgJ8

Area Activities: Plan a canoe trip down the Yellow or Namekagen River, both close at hand. Play golf at the Spooner Country Club or the renowned Voyager Village course, both open to the public. Visit the Tommy Thompson fish hatchery in Spooner, largest in the state and tours are given. Go to the Potter's Shed in Shell Lake and watch them fire Raku pottery or have them glaze your own pot. Hike the trail through the wooded 13 acres surrounding the cabin--you might surprise a deer. Play tennis on the Olympic-sized court right on the property. There is a basketball hoop if HORSE is your game. And, of course, fish and swim.

Great fall hunting (deer, ducks, grouse), leaf viewing, and cranberry picking on the property. Enjoy the winter with warm fires and downhill skiing at Telemark and cross country on Lake McKinley. Snowmobiling and ATV use is easy with many bordering trails. Excellent ice fishing just in front of the cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We saw deer everywhere day or night. Our favorite by far was the call of the

loon. Your cabin felt like home to us, both comfy and convenient. We couldn't

have asked for more.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5
The past year and a half, my girlfriend and I have traveled to some memorable destinations--the Smokey Mountains, the Florida Keys, Glacier National Park--and our trip to this cabin ranks right up there. We are confirmed white Christmas junkies, and booked the cabin to relax after a relentless semester of teaching. We weren't disappointed. It was quiet, cozy, and very picturesque. It's tucked way back on its own road--not like some of those other cabins grouped together in clusters on one property--and the cabin itself has a very unique design and feel. We plan on going back this winter.

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5
I rented the cabin for a fishing/golfing trip with my buddies. The cabin had everything we could ask for and more. The tennis courts were an added bonus and in great shape, but we didn't get a chance to play with all of the other activities planned.

We spent most of our time during the day fishing. The fishing was very slow but we did end up getting a nice bass and pike before the end our stay. We also took out the canoe and kayak and explored the lake a bit. The lake is as quiet and peaceful as it gets.

All in all, we had a great stay and I plan to go back next summer with my group. I might even plan a second trip for the family too...I know they would love the cabin as well!

Comfort in the Northwoods

  • 5 of 5
The Lake McKinley was the perfect peaceful place for us for two weeks around Labor Day. Its a small quiet lake without jet skis and big boats. We appreciated the open space and lake views from the large picture windows--that slide open for a breeze. The whole-house a/c was greatly appreciated for the week that was so hot and humid! We made good use of the tennis court, and enjoyed walks along the Lake McKinley Trail. It was close enough to Trego and Spooner for shopping. The cabin was clean and very well-stocked with kitchen/cooking supplies, even a range of spices that we actually did not have to bring! The lake-side deck was great for eating, sitting, reading, listening, and watching the hummingbirds--I think they are Violet Crowned Hummingbirds, according to Sibley's. The fridge space was good, especially with the extra fridge in the lower level. We loved the information and photos on the wall, everything from the history of the cabin and where to fish. Speaking of fish, it was great fun to feed old bread to the bluegill-piranhas at the end of the pier. They even nibble your legs if you wade out aways. The motor on the 16' boat was easy to start, as was the electric trolling motor-even though we did not fish much we did cruise the lake, and saw great blue herons and eagles. We especially enjoyed eating at Pair-o-Lakes, pretty good food and nice folks. If you are there during the season, be advised that it gets very busy especially for friday fish. The prime rib was very good at the Prime in Trego, and breakfasts were very good at the Dinner Bell. We saw no ticks, and a very few anemic mosquitoes. You do have to watch out for deer on the roads, as they seem to wait until cars to approach before they run out of the woods. We were joined by our son and his wife--just married--and so there were more to play cards with on the deck. It would also be a great place for younger ones with the nice sandy beach, shallow water around the dock and lot of water toys. It was a great place to enjoy the Northwoods.

Wish We Lived There Year Round

  • 5 of 5
This cabin and setting made for the most wonderful, and relaxing vacation! We hunted and fished, played tennis, and enjoyed watching the wildlife. My personal favorite was the soaring of the eagle right in front of us as we stood on the deck and watched! The cabin was very cozy and comfortable--with fantastic beds and linens. The kitchen was very well equipped with quality dishes and doodads. When the oven on the stove stopped working, the owner had the caretaker go right out and find another stove to replace it right away! The locals were very friendly and helpful--some even let us hunt and fish on their property! There were tons of deer and grouse. Even saw a bear cross the road in front of us one evening at dusk. There was plenty to do--from sitting and reading a good book from the reading material provided--to watching a movie with the family--to taking a morning walk on the crisp fall mornings--THIS CABIN WAS A BLAST! We loved the cabin in fall--the colors and sweet smelling air--and the sunrises and sunsets were incredible! Made us wish we lived there year round to enjoy all of the other seasons!

A little slice of Heaven on a Lake

  • 5 of 5
We loved this vacation. We were sad when it ended and plan to go longer next year! It is a cabin feel with the comforts of home. There is enough fun in and around the cabin and also great places nearby you can go to. We fished, played tennis, had smores, watched movies, and just had a great family time. Thank you again Jay for opening your home to us. See you next fall.
