Built in 2008. 1450 Sq. Ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Kitchen/ living room Great Room layout. Slate floors in bathrooms. Two sided open fireplace between great room and 4 season sun room with vaulted ceiling.
Many windows. All new appliances including range, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Skylights in upstairs bedrooms. Built-ins in bedrooms. All new furniture throughout the cabin.
There are two queen size beds in two of the bedrooms and one room has two small single beds. There is also a Pack and Play available for a baby. And there is an inflatable queen size bed that can be used in the sunroom to accomodate extra sleeping.
There is an Artesian well that is 200 feet deep in the granite ledge. Artesian wells are more common in sand and very uncommon in granite. This well provides some of the best water you’ll ever taste.
The cabin has total privacy with no neighbors on either side. There are a couple cabins across the river and just north of the cabin that are visible when at the river's edge.
The total acreage is approximately 6.5 with 300 feet of river frontage. The cabin is set back from the river, yet maintains a view of the river. At the river’s edge there is a picnic area deck with table and chairs. .
The land is wooded with a mix of small pine, some large pine old growth and hardwood. There are walking paths throughout wooded lot. There are no houses on either side of the lot. It is not uncommon to see a lot of wildlife. There are many deer, grouse, eagles that nest just up the river, and an occasional bear. The 6.5 acres that the cabin sit on abutts 1500 acres of undeveloped land.
In the summer months you can enjoy hiking or mountain biking, swimming in the river, canoeing or kayaking or fishing. The Chippewa river is one of the best rivers for fishing in the state of Wisconsin. Seven miles straight north is where the Chippewa River comes out of the Chippewa Flowage. At the Flowage there is a great new boat landing. An entire day could be spent exploring the flowage via boat.
The cabin is 3/4 of a mile from Tuscobia Trail. This is a premiere trail for ATVs in the spring through fall and Snowmobiling in the winter. The best thing is that the cabin is far enough away from the trail that you never see or hear atvs or snowmobiles. So, if that does not interest you, you won't be bothered by any noise. If you are into atving or snowmobiling, you have close access to the trail.
PROFESSIONAL FISHING GUIDE
There is a professional fishing guide that lives about 1 mile down the road. He is available to take people out for day trips to some of the best fishing spots in the area. He has very reasonable rates, provides shore lunches at noon, and cleans and packs fish at the end of the day. His guiding services are perfect for novices who are not sure what bait to use to experienced people who just want to get to the best locations right away. Inquire about rates.
In the winter there is also plenty of land to go cross country skiing or snowshoeing. The road down to the cabin is a perfect sled run in the winter months. The cabin is only 30 miles from Christie Mountain - providing lodging for the perfect ski getaway.
There are many more pictures of the cabin and information about the region at the cabin website at rivercabin.info.

We currently live in Minneapolis, and before that I lived in Madison, WI. My wife and I grew up in rural locations. I'm originally from northern Wisconsin near Rhinelander and my wife is originally from near Hanover, NH.
Jason purchased this cabin in 2008
On trips to and from my parents (now in Eagle River, WI) we found that we kept stopping about half way for baby-out-of-the-car breaks. One small park in Ojibwa next to the Chippewa River saw many diaper changes. Since the trip was about 4.5 hours, and we were wanting to get away on the weekends more often to have our kids know a country experience, we started to look in this area. It was perfect for us. A half way point for my parents and siblings in WI and next to a river. My wife and I have taken a houseboat all the way down the Mississippi River and enjoy the freedom of rivers.
When we are at the cabin we enjoy going on hikes and kayaking in the river. We also enjoy being so close to the Chippewa Flowage and a national park. In the winter our driveway down to the cabin is a perfect sled run for us and the kids.
Me my wife,son, his wife and our grand daughter had a wonderful time in this home. Every thing you need was there. I would stay here again. five stars plus
Our stay here was wonderful. We were lucky to have amazing weather to pair with the lovely cabin. The location is extremely secluded and you feel like you have acres upon acres to yourself! We took our dogs and did some hiking nearby which was also great to see a bit of nature and just listen to the wind and the birds. The cabin itself is perfect - it appears to be quite newly remodeled with a fully stocked kitchen, cozy living room and sun room that share a fireplace which we used daily, and a bunch of books for alms it anyone's taste. We would definitely return but next time with another couple or some more people.
My son-in-law said it best, " You found a high-end cottage deep in the woods" The home is clean, well appointed and comfortable. Many features include the outdoor patio with the gas (and Smokey Joe for the charcoal possessed) washer & dryer (which we didn't use). A fire pit right on the river was a great place to roast hot dogs and smores and share a few beers and stories. We paddled the canoe and one of the kayaks to the best of our ability and had a ball.
My 9 month old granddaughter toddled all over the place and remained surprisingly clean since the condition of the cottage was spotless.
We are all cooks and beware that the stove is glass top electric and takes some getting used to but we managed.
The best feature, in my opinon, is the lighting. The home has about 70% of its wall space comprised of windows which let in tons of light. On the one cloudy afternoon we had the track lighting lit up the place to promote a cheerful feeling...nothing can be so mood killing as the north wood in the rain.
We were very happy with the cabin. All the information we needed was provided, (phone numbers, check out instructions, etc.)
The path to the river was so inviting. We spent every morning sitting in the porch with our coffee watching for wildlife, which we saw one morning when a bear came to inspect the smell of breakfast cooking. Love the sky lights in the upstairs bedrooms. I would bring a DVD player next time. It does kind of echo with no window treatments to absorb sound, so late sleepers might have a hard time getting in their ZZZs.
Nice place. Well laid out and furnished. All of us liked it and are considering a future rental in late Sept/early Oct. If I owned this property I would probably mow the space from the house to the river more expansively with the idea of keeping the mosquitos down. The location is perfect from the standpoint of launching day trips to different parts of WI.
The cabin was just incredible. It was BETTER than the pictures and provided everything we needed. We loved in the indoor fire place for cool evenings. We loved the area, the Chippewa River, and having kayaks and a canoe available was awesome. The young adults in our party used those frequently. We definitely recommend this cabin.
