Overview

Wabasha Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, Plus Loft, With Stunning Views Of Backwaters Of The Mississippi River

Open year-round! Nestled between the small riverside towns of Alma and Nelson, Wisconsin, the Caye Dreams cabin sits on the backwaters of the Mississippi. What once was a day cabin with no running water or electricity to speak of, was completely remodeled in 2013. Every detail was considered, from the hand-scraped wood floors, the Amish rough sawn pine ceiling, the natural stone marble counter tops, the real stone slate surrounding the free-standing wood stove (there to keep you cozy on a cool night), to the screened-in deck with stunning views of the calm Mississippi backwaters and the trains passing by. You’ll feel like you just escaped into paradise.

The cabin sleeps six people comfortably in it’s one bedroom and large loft area. Enjoy incredible views as the sun rises and sets, and watch as the fisherman and water skiers go back and forth during the day. You’ll also have access to the water and use of our dock so that you can fish, swim, or just relax. Experience what it’s like to stay at a truly unique place.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Joe Becker

Joe grew up in Mondovi, WI as one of 8 on a family farm. For 22 years he co-owned a home improvement company. He was an active member of the local Chamber of Commerce as well as on the committee for the Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley. Joe was also an active member of the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association and served a term as chairman of the Home and Garden Show. Joe has always been an entrepreneur and owns several student rentals in Eau Claire, WI. Currently he is promoting a 90-day health challenge helping people lose weight and get fit. Libby grew up in the small town of Washburn, WI. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire with a marketing degree. She was a member of the Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley. She currently works for a non-profit organization. Joe and Libby met 4 years ago and were married this past December on a small island in Belize. Both love to travel and this shared passion has taken them on many adventures. Their dream is to one day live part of the year in Alma, and part of the year in Belize.

Joe Becker purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Joe Becker chose Wabasha

This cabin sat only feet from our own cabin property line and Joe always had a vision for what it could be. When the neighbor was ready to sell there was no question that we would buy. Joe took his love for home improvement and his attention to detail and design and made this cabin truly unique and upscale. Libby added her own personal touches here and there and was given full reign of making sure the kitchen was completely stocked with the proper utensils (and coffee and creamer of course!).

What makes this cabin unique

Joe & Libby found the views of the water and calming effects of the trains passing (don't worry they don't blow their horns where we are, and you can hardly hear them once inside) by so stunning that they wanted to share this experience with as many other people as possible, and thus Caye Dreams Riverside Hideaway was born. The meaning behind the name is a topic left for discussion sitting around a campfire with us enjoying one of your favorite cocktails or some of our homemade wine.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Not only were the accommodations great, but the setting of this backwater gem was perfect. This is an ideal location for rail fans, eagle lovers, and those looking for an unforgettable vacation experience. Joe and Libby roll out the red carpet for their guests. We highly recommend this property!

Beautiful cabin get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful peaceful getaway! Yes the trains are loud but it is an experience that we looked forward to! My high school friends & I get together annually and chose this wonderful get-away this year. The cabin is beautifully decorated and the scenery surrounds you with God's beauty. If I could snap my fingers and be back there, I would!

Fabulous girls weekend location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling cottage with all four girls needed to celebrate their annual trip together. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The location perfect for shopping and dining. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return again.

Another delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cabin and, we sincerely hope, not our last.

A great, relaxing stay in the midst of the brilliant fall colors along the Mississippi.

The cabin was, as previously, clean, comfortable and well appointed.

Terrific!

Beautiful cabin on the river.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise it was to pull up to this recently renovated cabin. It is clear from the start the Owners have put much time and thought into the renovations and furnishings. We were up for a quick weekend of fishing so the pier was quite handy. Next time I'll bring my wife, she would spend most of her time on the great screened in porch soaking in the river views.

Stay on the backwaters of the Mississippi River and enjoy gorgeous views of the water, trains passing by, and the abundant wildlife. Take a day trip to explore the many wineries in the area and wine taste your way up and down the Great Mississippi River Road. While you're here you can hike up to Buena Vista Park and experience the stunning view from a top the bluffs of Alma, WI. Or, if you'd rather, take a nice drive along the river to soak in views of the bluffs, wildlife, and river. Another must see is the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN, featuring live eagles. If you're visiting us in the winter don't forget to bring your skis, snowboard, or snowshoes. If you like fishing, we've got that too! So again, if it's winter, pack your ice shack and warm clothes and Joe will show you where all the fish are biting. We've also got great biking trails and roads if you are a cyclist. If you like boating, kayaking, canoeing, or just about any other water sport we've got the perfect location for you to do all of those things as well. Feel free to bring your boat and tie it up at our dock! Into golfing? Yes, we have that too! Like campfires? Perfect, we've got a great fire pit for having a fire and roasting s'mores (Libby always has the ingredients for those!). To experience something really unique, add Suncrest Gardens to your list. Suncrest Gardens has the best pizza in the area, live music many nights, and a nice fire to keep you warm as the evening fades away. Only catch is you have to bring your table, chairs, plates, napkins, and silverware but no worries you can borrow ours. (Warning, we may have to go with because we love their wood-fired pizza and of course we wouldn't want you to get lost trying to find it). You can also explore the many small river towns along the Mississippi, do some shopping, eating, or antiquing. Lastly, if you love deep-fried cheese curds, or if you have no idea what those are, than you must go to Pioneer (a 10-minute boat ride) and you'll have the best hand-battered white cheese curds Wisconsin (or anywhere else) has to offer. Not to mention, the Saturday night prime rib that melts in your mouth. Please also visit our website and visit our Facebook page for the latest happenings:
