Northern Wisconsin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

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!

Jon and Abby made it a very smooth transaction. They were very helpful and set proper expectations. The property is as describe in the listing. It was nice and clean and very well maintained.

Although there was alot of things to do indoor such as the foosball and ping pong table, we spent all of our time on the deck. The deck sits ontop of a hill which gives you great views and the deck is huge!!! There were bald eagles flying around right ontop of the propperty. The Gazebo was also great. There was plenty of wood and the grill provided worked perfectly.

The fishing was also good. Wish my buddy could of pulled in 2 of the 4lb bass that he had on his line. Highly recommend Jon and Abby's Birchwood location to anyone who wants to get away for the weekend or for the week.

Our Second Trip to Birchwood

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time staying at the cabin in Birchwood. The cabin is spacious & completely surround by forest. There is a gorgeous view off the back deck and the fishing in Big Chetac was excellent. The cabin rates are reasonable as well.

relaxation at its finest

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting through VRBO for 3 1/2 years and have never been disappointed. This time was no different. We had a fabulous time and the neighborhood was perfect for a family getaway. Lakes everywhere, big and small and the home was very well kept and full of fun for all ages. Though we had enough bedrooms for everyone, the kids decided the basement was the perfect place to make into their own. Between the 2 comfy futons and a rollaway mattress, our kids were able to all share the space for sleeping, Shark Week tv time, scary movie night (theres a VERY large tv in the basement!) and constant ping pong tournaments day or night. Plus they could be loud and enjoying themselves at all hours because the house is extremely sound proof from the downstairs to the upstairs so we old people had our 8 hours of sleep without a problem. lol! The home is well kept and decorated in the way we decorate our own home so we loved the rustic feel!! The fishing was also fabulous! The little pond down the back hill was packed with crappie and the lake across the road was also a good time for pulling in panfish and northern and everyone had a blast enjoying the outdoors! We enjoyed the huge deck and firepit for relaxing, dinner and smores. It really is a great place. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing alot of space. We were able to make a couple trips to Hayward and to the town of Birchwood as things aren't far away either direction out of the driveway. We had a great time and are definately hoping to rent it again in the future. Jon and Abby were fabulous to work with and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place or nicer owners!!
