About the property

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 2-10

Great Fishing, Swimming, & Relaxing: Enjoy spectacular sunrises over Big Chetac Lake and then relax with a cold one to enjoy the sunset over a small private lake. The deck has a built in fire pit and gazebo to enjoy outdoor living to the fullest and the view can't be beat! The master bedroom has its own private deck with views of both lakes. The heavily wooded lot is 2.9 acres and there is tons of room to explore in the adjacent county land. Fish Big Chetac or enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the small lake behind the house. Great fishing on Big Chetac over 2000 acres to explore!

Interior Remodel for the Up North Feeling: The home was completely remodeled in 2008 with pine tongue and groove siding in the living room and one of the bedrooms. There is also new carpet and hard wood floors throughout house. The kitchen has been remodeled and has a dishwasher and a extra large farm sink. The bathrooms have also been updated with ceramic tile throughout.The basement was completed in 2012 adding a 3rd bathroom, log futon, gas stove fireplace, and dish network on large tv.

Big Chetec is a great lake for recreation and fishing with over 2,000 acres of 'boatable' water to explore. There are multiple places on the lake to rent fishing boats or pontoons so that you can enjoy the sand bar on the lake as well as a couple of islands to explore and potentially camp on. The property has 700ft of wooded lake shore with a dock for your boat and for swimming. You will need to cross the road to get to the Big Chetec Lake front but it will be worth it!

This is a great place to come any time of year with nearby attractions in Birchwood, Hayward, Spooner, and Rice Lake. The cabin is surrounded by many ATV/Snowmobile trails to enjoy and you will love exploring the wooded lot.

If you prefer to stay at home you can enjoy a ping pong table and air hockey in the basement. You can also choose to snuggle up with a good book on either of the decks of in the cozy living room.

Exactly as stated online. The back lake really needs to be seen. The house was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The back lake is a hidden jewel. We had a lot of fun catching fish in L Chetac. Yes, we would rent from Jon again. He was very good to work with.

Thank you Jon

Fabulous cabin!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away and have total peace and quiet, this is the place. Secluded, beautiful views, clear water with little boat traffic. House has everything you need. Didn't like the smell of the water from faucet but got over that. Would not recommend lite kids as you feel like you are on mountain top with big drop offs. The back lake is a hike but so worth the hike to a beautiful Lake. No one else has access, just you. Clean, no weeds or algae. No real room to sit for the day. Chetek lake is also a hike but much easier. Owner made a sitting area there with fire pit, chairs, and picnic table. No beach are for swimming. You cannot see the lakes from the house. Great fun with the table games in basement. If you like to ship, we did not find anything close by, but plenty of restaurants. This place has it all!

Beautiful and Secluded Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the Reemtsma cabin and had a wonderful time. The cabin was clean and well furnished. We enjoyed both the deck and screened gazebo throughout our stay and loved having bonfires at night. The basement living room provided a great place to hangout during the rain and play ping pong and air hockey. The beds were all very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets for the colder nights. Our group really appreciated the large kitchen and dining room, which had everything we needed to make a variety of meals throughout the day. Both docks had incredible views and if not for the weather we would have spent a lot more time on Big Chetac. I would definitely recommend this cabin for groups and families alike!

great secluded location in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend away...cabin feels very secluded and is very quiet. It is close to hiking and town if needed. Cabin is in great shape...lots of fun playing ping-pong, listening to music and playing games. We are hoping to come back in the summer to use the property to it's fullest extent. Would highly recommend this property!
