Tucked away in the middle of the Chequamegon National Forest is the delightful community of Clam Lake. Majestic pines, cluster birch, and a quiet lake provide the backdrop for our beautiful hand-hewn log home. This is a truly unique home and property! Our home is situated on a 16 acre pennisula, surrounded by water on delightful Beaver Lake, a small refuge for waterfowl and wildlife. There is only one other property on the lake so privacy is yours. Rustic but not primitive, this home has five bedrooms (including a loft), and three bathrooms. It comfortably sleeps ten. The main floor has a large, well-equipped professional kitchen with Viking stainless dishwasher, range, and refrigerator/freezer. The kitchen is stocked with enough cookware, appliances and utensils for even the most discrimating gourmet cook. A sunny eating area with its handmade rustic pine plank table seats ten or more, and looks out over the deck and lake beyond.
The great room has a large fieldstone fireplace, a large over-stuffed leather sofa and cable TV with wireless high speed internet and a DVD player. Windows facing the lake extend two stories for fabulous views of the lake and surrounding woods. Old Hickory and antique furniture is inter-mixed with comfortable seating throughout the first floor. Off of the great room is a sunny all season porch facing the lake with two story windows on three sides. It is truly a spectacular room and a favorite of our guests. The main floor has 2 charming bedrooms, one with a bunk bed, and the other a double. Both rooms are furnished with handmade log furniture and wool throw rugs. Out the back door is a deck, which is a nice spot for viewing the lake while sipping morning coffee or an evening drink. Seating is provided on a large log bench or dining table with an umbrella.
Upstairs there is a master suite loft with a king bed, en suite bath with a double shower, leather chairs and a private deck. A wall of windows provide memorable views across the lake yearround. The loft area is a treat in itself. Downstairs there are two knotty pine bedrooms warmly decorated with a Northwoods theme and handmade beds. They share a newly finished full bathroom. The downstairs is also home to our large game room with a pool table, game table, and pinball machine. We also have a large collection of children's toys and games. The laundry area is in the basement as well.
The natural beauty of the woods can be enjoyed inside or out. A large stone firepit complete with seating overlooks the wetlands and sunsets across the lake. The lake can be enjoyed by non-motorized watercraft only. A canoe and paddle boat are provided. A large wetland at the opposite end of the lake is a summer breeding ground for many waterfowl including wood ducks, sandhill cranes, Canada geese and even bald eagles. The entire house is surrounded by extensive gardens that bloom into fall. Several trails are cut through the property for a short walk or simply walk down to the forest road for a quiet stroll through the woods. Across the lake are snowmobile and ATV trails that hooks up to literally hundreds of miles of trails through the wilderness. The surrounding area is filled with year-round outdoor activities. At the end of the day, you can return to the peace and solitude of Beaver Lake... or simply never leave!
The home is decorated to make it feel so warm and inviting, it is a beautiful home. When you are up in bed in the loft and the house lights are all off, look out the loft windows, you feel like you are outside. The stars are spectacular!!!
You are supplied with everything you will need except fire wood for the fire pits and beach towels. Which was not a big deal to bring our own beach towels and get our own fire wood. The 2nd refrigerator was nice to have.
It is such a quiet and secluded location.
The kids swam almost every day, they loved the floating dock. They also loved catching pan fish off of the docks.
We did not want to leave!!!! We will return!!!
Just finished another week staying at this property. Our family has been coming here for 7 years now and we have a great time every visit! The cabin is beautiful, well maintained and easily accommodates our group of 6 adults and 4 kids. We love the privacy of the location - it's like having a private lake given there is only one other cabin on the lake. Being located on the peninsula affords wonderful views and breezes that keep the bugs at bay. Perfect for relaxing, swimming and enjoying the north woods!
Can't say enough about how much we loved this place. Beautiful both inside and out. My only wish is for a second building so that more of my extended family could stay here to experience it! Hoping to stay again next year.
What an amazing home and property! It's pretty rare when the actual home exceeds the wonderful photographs. What hits you first is the quality - everything beautifully constructed, furnished and decorated; such an amazingly welcome and relaxed feeling as soon as you walk in the door. Then it's the enormity - "wait, there's another (big) room over here" and "look at this cool room.. and this one... and the game room in the lowest level.. with laundry... and kid's toys... and books... and the loft with sitting area!.. look at the size of that frig! - wait there's another one over here!" - I felt more like a kid than my kids and grandkids!
Then you step outside and the home is perfectly situated on a little peninsula where the lake wraps around the house. A very large yard to roam and run and enjoy games with plenty of shade trees. A sandy entrance area to the lake on one side with a swimming raft. Not a beach, but enough shallow area for a 4 and 7 year old to have a lot of fun. The other side has a small pier where we caught a wide variety of fish - perch, crappie, blue gills, sunfish, bass, bullhead. Did catch a decent size bass here and there, but really didn't try to do serious fishing. Came with paddle boat & canoe and we brought our two kayaks that were constantly in use! While only 32 acres, the lake seems much bigger as it wraps around there's marshy areas that extend the view. We enjoyed loons and a family of trumpeter swans (that really do trumpet!)
And it's serenely private and quiet which we loved most. Just a wonderful place for our family to reconnect and relax together. There is another house on the lake, but we never saw anyone. even if they were on the lake, would be far enough way to not be a distraction. The huge deck was great for grilling, hanging out and eating. The huge natural wood dining table inside is gorgeous! We enjoyed the firepit many nights - again, the quality. Large lannon stone floor with matching bench seating and a gorgeous view out to the lake. In late June it was still twilight at 10:15 pm!
We mostly hung around the cabin, but did a day hike over at Copper Falls State Park as well as dropping kayaks in Day Lake, upper & lower clam lake. The little town a mile up the road great for some necessities like bait & beer!
I really hate to write such a nice review because it might not stay our hidden little gem! But it's just so nice that I do hope you get the chance to get up to NW Wisconsin and enjoy!
Excellent family time. Only the neighbor was a family of loon, swimming on the lake.
The pictures and description do not even come close to doing this cabin justice. It is gorgeously located on a peninsula which was great to fish around in the paddleboat and canoe. I came up with group of guys for fishing and golfing and it was absolutely perfect. There is a full game closet, the kitchen was impeccable, and plenty of lawn space for horsing around. The view from the large fire pit at night was to die for. The place was truly ideal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
