The home is all one level with easy access to lake and surrounding area. The CAMBA mountain bike trails, including the epic Rock Lake Trail, are just minutes away. 3 mountain bikes, 5 kayaks, and a fish cat are included with your rental. Accessible pontoon boat also available. There are hundreds of lakes and rivers in the area. Lake Namakagon is known for world class fishing and is one of three trophy muskie lakes in WI.

For mountain and fat bike enthusiasts, we are minutes from the Chequamagon Area Mountain Bike Trails (CAMBA), including the epic Rock Lake Trail. More interested in relaxing? The Landing is a great place to get away from it all, read a good book, sit by the fireplace, watch a movie, or just sit on the dock and watch the world go by while listening to the call of the loons.

My husband (Mark) and I started Overson Landings Vacation Rentals in 2011 with Namakagon Landing. Mark uses a wheelchair and understands the needs of accessible travel. He is an adaptive skier and also flies untralight airplanes, rides a hand cycle and designed Namakagon Landing so it is super easy to get around in a wheelchair or if you need a one-level home for mobility issues. I am a silent sports enthusiast with kayaking and cross country skiing on the top of my list. Our kids are wakeboarders and snowboarders and like anything with speed but also enjoy paddling and boating. We all have enjoyed the area for many years and now have made our lakehome available as a vacation rental. We provide paddling equipment, easy access to lake and property, and 100% barrier free accommodations, including an accessible bathroom, attached heated garage, wheelchair access to dock, boats, wheelchair compatible bed heights (one adjustable), and much more.

My husband and I met and lived in Colorado before returning to the midwest, where we raised our family and, more recently, started Overson Landings. We also have day jobs. I am a Landscape Architect with the National Park Service and Mark recently retired from Fairview Orthopedic Lab. We have twin boys who just left for college and we are looking forward to being empty nesters (we think - still too early to tell). We hope to expand Overson Landings someday to include beach and mountain properties that have wheelchair access to adaptive sports and nearby amenities. We'd love to hear your suggestions. Namakagon Landing is your accessible vacation rental but all are welcome.

Susan and Mark Overson purchased this house in 2011

This one level lakehome with attached, heated garage has very easy access to house, level access to Lake Namakagon and is just a paddle stroke away from the headwaters of the Namakagon River. We want everyone, including people with mobility issues, to enjoy the area as much as we have with as few barriers as possible. We have been vacationing in Cable since our kids were little (over 19 years) and enjoy the area immensely. We found the property while on vacation in the area and fell in love with it. Namakagon Landing is not your typical rental. It was started by and for people with mobility issues, but all are welcome to enjoy our northwoods paradise.

The property is 100 % barrier free, has easy access to the lake via a level boardwalk and lot, and is in the most beautiful area of northern Wisconsin. It is also a kayak, fishing, boating, cross country, and snowmobile lovers paradise near world class XC skiing and mountain biking, for those who are interested in those sports. The area is also know for its worldclass fishing and hunting. There area is an active sports community for all outdoor activities. The para-Olympics were hosted in Cable in the winter of 2012 and 2013. It's an awesome event as is the American Birkebiener and Chaquamagon Fat Tire festival. Cable is a very small and quaint town not far - 10 minutes from cabin/ 20 minutes from Hayward, WI, where you will find most services, medical facilities, more shopping and restaurants. The town of Cable, WI is very remote and relaxing with no traffic, chain restaurants or stores, and stoplights. Most of the restaurants and stores are accessible, as is getting around town. At the lake, all you hear are loons, frogs, and the ripple of the water (and, of course, jumping fish). It has created many wonderful memories in the three years we've owned it for us and our guests. We know you'll love the area as much as we do.

Fatbike Birkie

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 18, 2014

Some friends and I came down to ride the Fatbike Birkie in early March and had an excellent stay! Plenty of room in the heated garage to tune our bikes the night before the race, and a nice large kitchen to cook in. Had a little bit of trouble with the ignitor on the gas grill, but found a long lighter inside and cooked up some elk backstrap. Nice comfy beds, plenty of room to stretch out in the living room, and quiet neighborhood for a relaxing stay. We live on the North Shore of Lake Superior and as a home builder have a lot of experience with vacation rental properties and I'd rate this one as a pretty typical of rental properties up here. Nothing fancy or overly striking, but a practical build for a house being shared with strangers. There is an additional booking fee and cleaning charge to consider when staying, which pushed the price up over $800 for a two night stay. That said, the space was clean, warm, and a nice place to come back to after the race. I would consider staying here again for future Fatbike Birkie's.
Owner's Response: Anton, Thanks so much for your very thoughtful review. Glad you had a nice stay. I'll look forward to hearing about you placing or being on a podium at the Fat Birkie someday. Our place has been good luck for other competitors (Birkie and Fat Tire Events) so, hopefully, for you, too. Let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your stay. I look forward to having you back soon.

We loved the beauty of the scenery. Completely enjoyed the ability to utilize all the amenities the acessible house had to offer. Enjoyed traveling through the state park and seeing all of the little shop the town had to offer. Definitely would recommend to our friends and family.

Great!

Our group of 3 couples stayed at Namakagon Landing over Labor Day weekend and we had a great time. It's far enough from town to be relaxing, but close enough to be able to make a grocery store run if you need to. We were only there for a short time, so I can't comment on the outdoor activities in the area (which I'm sure are fantastic, because it's a beautiful location) -- we were more than happy to just enjoy reading a book in the yard, going fishing on the lake, and enjoying dinners at "home."

The owners, Susan and Mark, are fantastic to work with and very quick to respond to any question or concern you may have. And they have definitely succeeded in their goal of creating the most accessible place on the planet! Finding a great vacation spot where we can bring our big dog is hard enough, but our dog has 3 legs, and most cabins have steep access to the lake, plus stairs inside the home. To be able to bring him to a 100% accessible property where we didn't have to help him up a single stair or lift him out of the boat was a dream come true!

Be sure to check out the "Links to More Information" for more photos. The home is very clean and well maintained; what you see is what you get! And the kitchen really is as huge as it looks :)
