We love living in the Northwoods and all it has to offer. We are very avid outdoors people who truly enjoy hunting, fishing, kayaking, campfires, and living on the river. We live everyday where most people come to vacation. We have three children that keep us on our toes.
Josh & Kaisa Schuelke purchased this cabin in 2014
We both grown up in the Northern Wisconsin area. We bought the cabin in 2014 when the former owner offered it to us. We like the location in heart of the Flambeau River State Forest and close to our home. This cabin has such a unique rustic quality and a great story of how it came to be where it is.
HUNTING The area has some of the best grouse, woodcock and whitetail habitat in the country. Regardless of what you are after, with 90,000+ acres at your disposal, yours days afield will be filled with adventure. FLAMBEAU RIVER & BASS LAKE The Flambeau River consists of the N. & S. forks which contain Class I-IV rapids for advanced canoers and kayakers and also have placid stretches for those looking for an easy float. There are campsites located on both forks and shuttle service is available at Big Bear Restaurant next door. Bass Lake, located deep in the forest off Tower Rd. (get directions from the Forest Office)is a non-motorized wilderness lake awaiting your fishing or floating enjoyment. There is parking and a groomed trail to the lake to carry in your gear. Pack a picnic lunch and eat near the launch at the base of a large hemlock grove. CHIPPEWA FLOWAGE, CONNORS LAKE AND LAKE OF THE PINES The nearest launch for the 'Big Chip' as it is know, is just north of Hwy 70 on Cty Rd. CC north of New Post, WI. This flowage, known for record muskies, is largely undeveloped and loaded with numerous islands so bring a map. Pack lunch and pull up on any number of islands for your own private break in the fishing action. Connors Lake is known for walleye and has great sand beach which is within walking distance of the boat launch which is great for children. More developed than Lake of the Pines, it's crystal clear. Lake of the Pines, known for good pan fishing, also has a beach (at the campground) and a launch. Fishing licenses can be purchased in both Phillips and Winter. Bait next door at Big Bear. ATV's/SKIING/SNOWMOBILING The forest contains mile and miles of trails for all types of activities with maps for each available at the Forest Office, across the street from the cabin. Be prepared to see wildlife in their natural setting whether you are walking or venturing past at a faster pace.
The cabin was perfect for our group. It is not fancy by any means but if you are wanting fancy then you probably don't vacation in the north woods much. Owners took care of broken coffee pot and microwave within 24 hours of them not working. Loved that we could walk over to Big bear lodge for burgers and beer anytime. We will be renting this cabin next year for sure as it sleeps a lot and rates are reasonable.
My son and I stayed there for 4 days this past October for some bow hunting. We had a wonderful stay and the cabin was a great set up for doing just that. The cabin's decor, lots of hunting and fishing pictures, and the deer mounts and antlers added a nice touch. We spent a lot of time looking them over. I had a successful hunt, shooting a nice buck and my son shot and missed one as well. Would definitely recommend this cabin to others and plan on doing so again this year.
This cabin has a lot of history. It was built in the Chequamegon National Forest by the CCC, then moved to its present location, where it served as a gift shop for Big Bear Lodge. This is a great location for hunting or fishing outings on the Flambeau. After a long day on the river, get a fire going in the massive stone fireplace and settle in for a quiet night in the Northwoods. You'll enjoy your stay, but save a weekend for me - I plan to come up this year for some muskie fishing and grouse hunting!
What a wonderful place you have Brad. We were so fortunate to be able to stay there last year when filming for Minnesota Bound TV on the Flambeau River, and a photo shoot the next day with 2 writers/photographers from the twin cities. I mention this because as their host...it is important to have great acommodations to create the right environment for the intensity of a day on the water. Your place is beyond measure the bomb! Having all of your needs taken care of in such a beautiful setting allows you to focus on the most important thing....fishing ! I look forward to many more visits, as my family and I have been canoe fishing right there since 1987. Every detail has been thought out and the ambiance in the cabin with all of your family memorablia is priceless.
It helps to have Big Bear Lodge next door for shuttle service and the wonderful food and atmosphere that Al and Phyllis have there.
