Why Eleanor Byrd chose Tunk Lake
Wickyup is named after our grandparents original lodge (built in 1927-28) which burned to the ground in 1984. Waiting 23 years to be able to rebuild, Wickyup II was erected in 2007on the property which has been in the family since 1938. It has special meaning to us as we remember all the wonderful times we had as children and can now pass those experiences on to our children and grandchildren.
What makes this cabin unique
The charm of this beautiful log cabin coupled with forest wilderness makes this location exceptionally heartwarming. The peace and quiet is amazing; unless of course there are parties and children laughing and playing! Listening to the 'quiet' is an experience few of us are familiar with. The crisp clear sounds of wildlife free of any human racket is priceless. The cry of the loon is heard often adding to the feeling of tranquility.The night sky, free of incident lighting is a blanket of stars. Hours spent on the dock at night identifying constellations can not only be a learning experience but also quite romantic! The covered porch has two adjustable hammock chairs with foot slings perfect for reading, napping and just plain swinging. The VERY large open deck looks out on the lake and over the lawn area complete with hammock. For more, see amenities.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The cabin is absolutely outstanding! I have loved staying here and exploring the magical woods. The view has blown me away with its originality and beautifulness. You have done up the house like it is a sample of heavens cabins. I had an incredible time here. The lake was warm and it was somewhere where my favorite memories are. It has been amazing to stay in this cabin, and I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
A wonderful week was spent reconnecting with family in this magical place! Thank you!
Thank you for lending us your beautiful home for the week. You are truly sitting on a conservation land and the lake is a wonderful body of water. We had a wonderful time! G+A
